As a comprehensive dealer, we pride ourselves on our strong selection of CPO Ford models. In fact, we offer a number of pre-owned models that can fit into your vocation or favorite hobby.

Used and certified pre-owned vehicles are similar in that they’re both pre-loved. However, what sets them apart is a certification badge! In order for a used vehicle to be considered certified pre-owned, it must pass a thorough inspection and rigorous test to ensure its exceptional quality. Certified vehicles will also be available with a variety of additional perks that may not come with used vehicles.
A used vehicle can just be traded in or sold to a dealership to be put on the market, unlike certified pre-owned rides, which need to be heavily inspected to achieve the CPO tag. Plus, traditional used vehicles tend to be older and their condition does not play a part. Meanwhile, a CPO vehicle relies heavily on its quality performance.
Our certified pre-owned program is especially unique in that we have two categories of certification available. Blue Certified vehicles can be from any manufacturer but must be newer than 10 years and have fewer than 120,00 miles on it to be considered. From there, a model will have to pass a 139-point inspection to earn the Blue Certified badge.
Gold Certified vehicles, on the other hand, have slightly higher standards. These must be Ford models and have to:
● Be less than six years old
● Have fewer than 80,000 miles on it
● Pass a 172-point inspection
Either class of certification will bring a few extra perks to the table that will offer extra quality assurance. All certified pre-owned vehicles are available with their CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, which is only available with some used vehicles. This will provide extra information about a vehicle’s past so you can confidently make your choice.
Blue and Gold Certified vehicles also come with extended warranties, Roadside Assistance, FordPass™ Rewards Points, and more to ensure you feel good driving one of these models off our lot!
