One of the biggest reasons a lot of people consider a CPO Jeep Wrangler when shopping for their next vehicle is for the warranty protection that these models have. In fact, that warranty coverage is one of the main ways that CPO models differ from other pre-owned vehicles, but it does not always justify the higher price that CPO vehicles sell at. For some people, that extra peace of mind might be enough, but we often suggest that if that is your primary concern, then perhaps a brand-new Jeep Wrangler would represent a better overall choice for you.
Consider the warranty coverage that Jeep CPO models have: 3 months or 3,000 miles of maximum care warranty coverage on most of the vehicle, as well as 7 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain limited warranty protection. Those are excellent warranties from the original manufacturer, but the coverage is not as extensive as it might seem. The powertrain warranty period starts when the vehicle is originally sold as new; this means that a model from 4 years ago with 69,000 miles on it only has 3 years or 31,000 miles of powertrain coverage.
When you compare this to the warranty protection with a brand-new Jeep, you can see why so many people worried about peace of mind go with a new model. Every new Jeep has a 3-year or 60,000-mile basic warranty on most of the vehicle along with a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. While the new-vehicle powertrain warranty might seem shorter than the CPO Jeep coverage at first, once you factor in the time and mileage from when it was sold as new, most CPO Jeep models will give you shorter protection than a new model.
While a brand-new Jeep Wrangler is probably a bit more expensive than a CPO model, that difference is justified by knowing you are the first and only owner. If your budget is more of a priority, then the lower price of a standard pre-owned Wrangler is probably your best bet. A CPO Jeep can be a fine choice, but you can see that there are generally better options: a new model for superior warranty protection or a used Wrangler for a lower price.
The Wrangler Makes a Great Pre-Owned Model
Manufactured as an SUV that could please the off-roading crowd, the Wrangler has been one of the most immediately recognizable vehicles that Jeep has ever produced. The Wrangler has reached a milestone of longevity with over 35 years on the market since its original release dating back to 1986. All of these decades later, there are a large number of dedicated off-road enthusiasts who will never pick any vehicle for hitting the trail other than their trusty Wrangler. The Wrangler is also a highly customizable SUV, and it can be fitted for even the harshest of terrains with features such as 35-inch tires, numerous 4x4 systems, and more.
The Wrangler has had a wide variety of trims offered over the years, with some geared towards luxury and others geared towards extreme off-roading. No matter what kind of model you choose while looking at used options, however, you are going to find a vehicle that was born to conquer the trail. For many, the modern Wrangler is the spiritual successor to the original Willys Jeep that helped the Allies win World War II, and it continues to blaze a trail and go anywhere you need it to. A used Jeep Wrangler is a fantastic option if you are looking to get a vehicle for your next adventure while also saving some money.
