Winter Texans and Retirees | McAllen, TX

BMW models for Winter Texans and retirees in McAllen, TX

Here in McAllen, retirees enjoy warm weather year-round, spending their days out on the Gulf or working within the lovely community. We also have retirees from up north, whom we call Winter Texans, who flee the snowstorms of the winter by living in McAllen part-time. All of these retirees have worked hard all their lives and deserve a luxurious vehicle that is fun to drive, comfortable and convenient. And because many of them are grandparents, many retirees also want something with only the best, most advanced safety features for their grandchildren. We recommend the following.

BMW 5 Series

The elegant BMW 5 Series sedan is powerful (up to 335 horsepower with a 4.6-second launch from 0 to 60 mph), but it is also comfortable and equipped with modern safety systems. The 5 Series‘s technology is among the most advanced in the industry, including the BMW Live Cockpit Professional, the iDrive 7.0 Operating System, and safety features such as Traffic Jam Assistant, Active Lane Keeping Assistant with Side Collision Avoidance, and Cross-Traffic Alert.


If you prefer a Sports Activity Vehicle® with ample cargo space for trips to the beach; the BMW X3 delivers with up to 62.7 cubic feet of space with rear seats folded. When properly equipped, the X3 is also great if you plan to take a small boat out onto the Gulf thanks to its 4,400 pounds of towing capacity. The optional Driving Assistance Package includes Active Driving Assistant, Lane Departure Warning and Active Blind Spot Detection.

BMW 3 Series

The smaller BMW 3 Series sedan is great if you like to take impromptu road trips thanks to its 36 mpg highway fuel economy rating.* The BMW 3 Series is also ideal if you’re a grandparent thanks to its plethora of safety technologies such as Active Protection and Active Guard with City Collision Mitigation and Frontal Collision Warning. Available Driving Assistance Professional technologies include Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Active Lane Keeping Assistant with Side Collision Avoidance.
