Certified Pre-Owned – Colorado Springs, CO

For most people, an automobile represents a serious investment; whether you are looking for a new or used model, a car, truck, or SUV is not a small purchase. That is one of the reasons that many people have considered a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle since it can offer a middle-ground between new and used options. While we recognize that there is some value in a good CPO vehicle, we also know that CPO models are not the best choice for everyone. If you are looking for a great warranty, then a new model will protect you better, while a used vehicle will save you more money if your budget is your top concern.

Here at The Faricy Boys, the most important thing to us is working with our customers to ensure everyone drives away completely happy. Whether you are shopping for a family-friendly minivan like the Chrysler Pacifica, an adventurous SUV like the Jeep Wrangler, or a luxurious vehicle like the Wagoneer, we have you covered. There is nothing like the peace of mind that a new model gives you, including fantastic warranty coverage, while our amazing selection of used vehicles can save you money while still ensuring you get a terrific ride. In other words, while a CPO model can seem attractive, there are better options when you are looking for warranty coverage or sticking to a budget.

Save Money With a Fantastic Used Vehicle

With decades of experience selling great cars, we have learned that the key to helping our customers is recognizing why each person comes to us and what you are looking for. Many of our customers are primarily concerned with the cost of a vehicle, and they have a strict budget that they need to stick to while shopping for their next car, truck, or SUV. We completely understand this, and we believe that finding you a terrific model that you will enjoy while ensuring your payments will not keep you up at night is the most important thing that we do.

That is where our terrific selection of pre-owned vehicles really comes into play since it allows us to show you a wide range of options to best meet your needs. Some customers come to us worried that going with a used model means missing out on options, but in truth, choosing a pre-owned vehicle gives you a massive array of options to choose from. You can consider a wide range of makes and models, from numerous years, with all sorts of different features and options in them. But your choices are only as good as the dealership you pick.

Here at The Faricy Boys, we work hard to maintain a diverse and exciting selection of pre-owned vehicles for you to choose from. We live to see that moment when our customers’ eyes light up at the sight of the car, truck, or SUV that they are going to love driving for many years to come. A great pre-owned vehicle will treat you well for a long time while also going easy on your wallet and fitting your budget with affordable payments. And since all of our used vehicles come with a 3-day or 300-mile refund policy, you have time to make sure the one you have chosen is exactly right for you.

Excellent Warranty Protection with a New Model

We also know that many of our customers have a bit more room in their budget that allows them to look at options beyond pre-owned vehicles. Many of these customers desire the peace of mind that comes from warranty protection on their vehicles. Since a car is a big investment, you want to know that you are covered in case anything goes wrong with the engine, electrical system, or any other part of the vehicle. This is one of the main reasons some people check out a CPO vehicle over other options––but there is a better choice.

A new Chrysler or Jeep will not only treat you incredibly well while you drive it but also comes with fantastic warranty protection––even beyond a comparable CPO option. Jeep and Chrysler models come with a 3-year/36,000-mile basic limited warranty along with a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty to protect your investment in your vehicle. If you choose a Jeep with a diesel engine, then you get a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty instead. This shows you just how much Jeep believes in its vehicles and the quality of its product, with fantastic protection for your purchase to ensure you enjoy it for many years.

If you look at comparable CPO models, then you will notice a similar Jeep or Chrysler model will come with a 3-month/3,000-mile basic warranty and a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. You can quickly see that the basic warranty of a new model far exceeds the one on a CPO vehicle, but that powertrain coverage can seem pretty impressive. It is important to note that for a CPO model, the powertrain warranty is based on when it was sold as new, so it is not uncommon for that powertrain warranty to fall well short of the protection you get with a new vehicle.

The Faricy Boys Can Help

We understand that some people are interested in what CPO models have to offer, but the reality is that for many people, a new or used vehicle is simply a better choice. While CPO models can seem like a great option, they suffer from the “jack of all trades, master of none” problem in that they fail to be as good as models that are more focused on giving you just what you need. If you are on a budget, then a used model will cost you less than a comparable CPO vehicle––while a new car is a better choice if you are looking for warranty protection to cover your purchase.

Here at The Faricy Boys, we are ready to help you with anything you need in order to ensure you get the right vehicle and continue to enjoy it for many years to come. Our selection of used vehicles includes a wide range of fantastic models that are in excellent condition––many just as good as any CPO model, but you do not have to pay extra for something that has been “certified.” Plus, with our service center and factory parts department, we are fully equipped to help you with everything you need while you enjoy your new or used vehicle for many years. There is nothing better than shopping with people you can trust and always knowing where to turn when you need service or repairs.

The Ram 1500 Classic

As you are looking at used Ram trucks, you are going to notice two different versions of the Ram 1500 starting in 2019. In 2019, the new generation of the Ram 1500 started, and models that you see labeled as “Ram 1500” are part of that new generation. Since the previous generation was so popular and still had so much to offer, however, production of it continued under the name “Ram 1500 Classic.”

The Ram 1500 Classic may be part of the previous generation, but it still has a number of excellent features. A standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine is offered on the 2019 model, which provides 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. You might also find used models that have the available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, which delivers 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. With the right configuration, a Ram 1500 Classic can tow more than 10,000 lbs, but be sure to check the specific towing capacity of any particular model you find.

Great interior features have been available on the Ram 1500 Classic, including an 8-inch infotainment display and a 7-inch high-definition driver cluster display. If you want the peak of luxury, then look for a model with the Laramie trim, which includes leather-trimmed seats and other great touches. There have also been a number of excellent safety features on the Ram 1500 from the last few years, which you can find on newer Classic models, including Electronic Stability Control and Hill Start Assist.

The Ram 1500

A used Ram 1500 from 2019 or later will be part of the current generation and includes an impressive 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that provides the same horsepower and torque as the older generation, but it comes with a mild-hybrid system called eTorque to boost performance. The 5.7L HEMI V8 engine is also available on newer models, and it can come with eTorque too. With improvements to its overall design, however, the current generation of Ram trucks has a maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 lbs when properly configured.

Recent Ram 1500 models are among the most sophisticated and luxurious trucks on the road, with interior features that blow away a lot of other pickups out there. Available features for the current generation include a massive 12-inch infotainment display, a 7-inch driver digital cluster with 3D graphics, and a stunning 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system. These models also include some of the most impressive safety features on the road. As you consider your options, look for Ram 1500s with an improved Blind Spot Monitoring system with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection, which accounts for the length of a trailer when checking for vehicles around you. A Lane Departure Warning that helps prevent unintentional lane drifting and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go are also available.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the largest vehicle you will currently find in the Jeep lineup. It can seat up to five passengers, has ample cargo space, and comes with plenty of features to make sure you are riding in both style and comfort. If you need even more seating, then the latest models have an available third-row for additional passengers. The most-recent generation for the Grand Cherokee launched with the 2022 model, so keep that in mind as you look at used options from previous years.

There are numerous Grand Cherokee models available, including the standard Laredo trim and the Trailhawk, which is a fantastic choice for going off-road. Trailhawk models include a lot of additional equipment and features that will make any weekend camping trip or getaway a breeze. They feature off-road tires to better handle any terrain, air suspension for a much smoother ride, and much more. Possible engine options on the Jeep Grand Cherokee include the standard 3.6L V6 engine with 293 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The latest models also have an available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine with 357 hp, plus an available plug-in hybrid engine with 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.

The Jeep Cherokee

The Grand Cherokee’s little brother comes in the form of the aptly named Cherokee. This is a two-row, compact SUV that can fit up to five passengers while still giving you plenty of space in the back for your cargo or gear. Late-model versions of the Cherokee, like the 2019, will have many similar features as to what you can find on a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, just in a smaller package, so consider that while looking at your used options.

You can find both two-wheel drive (2WD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) models, depending on what you are looking for, and there are also a lot of different trim levels out there to choose from. Some of the more popular models include the Latitude and the Trailhawk, which is a great off-road options. All Trailhawk models come with 4WD, just like on the Grand Cherokee, and they have Jeep’s prestigious Trail Rated badge. This means the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk has been put through a series of rigorous tests in five different categories in different conditions to prove its off-road mettle.

The standard engine on the current Jeep Cherokee is a 3.2L V6 engine that delivers 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. There is also an available 2.0L Turbo engine that gives you 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, making it perfect for getting around town or hitting the trail. Both engines have impressive towing that is perfect if you have a small trailer you need to take with you.

The Jeep Wrangler

There is nothing quite as iconic in the Jeep lineup as the Wrangler. For the last decade or so, the Wrangler has been available in either a four-door or two-door configuration, so look for both of these as you consider different used models. In recent years, Jeep has offered a number of impressive engines and trims on the Wrangler, making it a fantastic choice if you want a great off-road machine while also going easy on your budget. As you look at pre-owned Wrangler models, keep an eye out for the legendary Rubicon trim for a fantastic combination of off-road performance and advanced technology.

These days, the Jeep Wrangler lineup is more diverse than ever, with remarkable new options like the Wrangler 4xe and the Rubicon 392. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is a plug-in hybrid that gives you up to 49 miles of all-electric range and up to 370 miles of total driving range with a full tank of gas and a fully-charged battery. If you are interested in a new model with unsurpassed power, then check out the Wrangler Rubicon 392: the most powerful Wrangler ever, thanks to a beastly 6.4L HEMI V8 engine that delivers 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, which lets it go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds.

The Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is an excellent vehicle for anyone looking for everything that Jeep has to offer but in a compact package. The Renegade has been around for less than a decade, but it has become a popular product among Jeep enthusiasts due to its adventure-ready attitude in a smaller and affordable vehicle. For example, a 2019 Renegade might not come with as powerful an engine as a same-year Wrangler or Grand Cherokee, but it can be on par with the Cherokee, and it can come with some serious off-road-ready features.

The standard powertrain found on a Jeep Renegade these days is a 1.3L 4-cylinder engine that gives you 177 hp and 210 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Much like other Jeep models, there are numerous trims available for the Renegade, including the Trailhawk, which is ideal for going off-road. The Renegade Trailhawk features a high air intake and sealed electrical connections to let you ford creeks and streams while enjoying a day out on the trail.
