The Wrangler - The Original Off-Roader
If you are looking for a Jeep to tackle the toughest trails or simply love that open-air life, a used Wrangler is the Jeep for you. Introduced in 1986, the Wrangler is the direct descendant of the original WWII military Jeep, just upgraded for the modern driver. Every generation includes standard 4x4 and an off-road design with detachable roof and doors but pairs that rugged capability with the interior comforts and features that you desire. The most recent Wrangler models even include cutting-edge features such as hybrid drivetrains and large touchscreen infotainment systems.
There have been four generations of the Wrangler, and all of them are still great options for used car shoppers. The original YJ model is becoming a bit harder to find these days since it ended production back in 1995. So if you are looking for an older used model, the TJ is probably your best bet. Produced from 1996 to 2006, these were the last Wranglers with a straight-six engine and the first Wranglers with the iconic round headlights.
If you are searching for something a bit more modern without breaking the bank, the JK is the Jeep for you. This was a ground-up redesign of the Wrangler that gave the model more modern features. It was further improved throughout the 13-year production run, and two big upgrades to look for are the Pentastar V6 engine (introduced in 2012) and the Uconnect touchscreen infotainment (introduced in 2014).
The current Wrangler is the JL model, which was introduced in 2018 and has brought some exciting new features to the table. If you want improved power and efficiency, this is the Wrangler for you. Its large array of engines include a 2.0L turbo, a V6 diesel, a powerful HEMI V8, and even the plug-in hybrid 4xe. It also offers modern tech features, such as the available 8.4-inch touchscreen and Uconnect 4 infotainment system. But whichever Wrangler generation you choose, you know you are getting the original Jeep.
The Grand Cherokee - Power and Luxury
Launched in 1993, the Grand Cherokee was the SUV that proved off-road performance and high-end luxury really are compatible. Instead of the detachable windows and doors of the Wrangler, the Grand Cherokee offers a smooth and comfortable ride punctuated by all the premium features you could desire. This midsize SUV is the perfect companion for families who need a vehicle they can count on through every adventure. The Grand Cherokee even offers some impressive tow ratings, so you don’t have to worry about how to bring your boat or camper along with you.
Most of the used Grand Cherokees you will find here in Colorado Springs come from the third or fourth generation. The third-generation models, which were built from 2005 to 2010, are an affordable way to get behind the wheel of a capable midsize SUV. However, the best used Grand Cherokees come from the fourth generation. With classic styling and more modern tech, these vehicles will satisfy even the most discerning Jeep enthusiast. Produced from 2011 to 2021, the fourth-generation Grand Cherokee didn't need to see many upgrades because it was so good right from the start.
Every model year of the fourth generation offers the choice between the efficient Pentastar V6 and the muscular 5.7L HEMI V8. However, Jeep also offered two high performance engine options for drivers who demand even more from their ride. The SRT trim was introduced in 2012 and brought with it a larger 6.4L HEMI with 470 horsepower. In 2018, Jeep transformed the Grand Cherokee into the fastest SUV in the world by equipping the new Trackhawk trim with a supercharged HEMI V8 borrowed from the Dodge Hellcat muscle cars.
However, the Grand Cherokee is about far more than raw street performance. If you are looking for luxury, then you won’t be disappointed by models like the High Altitude or Summit. If you are gearing up for a wilderness adventure, then the Trail Rated Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is the model for you. With upgraded 4x4, skid plates, recovery hooks, and more, the Trailhawk is off-road ready straight from the factory. With so many flavors of Grand Cherokee to choose from, be sure to chat with our team to figure out which used model is the perfect fit for you.
The Gladiator - A Trail-Ready Truck
If you have always admired the unique looks and features of the Wrangler, but are the type of driver who needs a pickup truck, then the Jeep Gladiator is right up your alley. First introduced for 2020, the Gladiator looks and performs exactly like a Wrangler with a bed. It has all the features you would expect from Jeep’s iconic model, including standard 4x4, a manual transmission, and even removable roof and doors. The only difference is that you also have over 35 cubic feet of cargo space in the pickup bed.
Like the Wrangler, a used Gladiator gives you a few different options to choose from to get your perfect off-road vehicle. While every single trim is Trail Rated, the most adventurous drivers will want to hunt down either a Gladiator Rubicon or a Gladiator Mojave. The Rubicon is designed for serious rock climbing, with an ultra-low crawl ratio, disconnecting swaybar, and front and rear lockers. On the other hand, the Mojave is built for Baja-style desert running. The shorter gear ratio lets you go faster in 4Lo, the beefed-up suspension can survive jumps, and the standard cooling upgrades can deal with desert heat.
While there are many used trucks for sale today, none of them come close to matching the features and capabilities of the Jeep Gladiator. From wandering into the mountains around Colorado Springs to driving into town to pick up plywood from the hardware store, this is a midsize truck that can handle it all and deliver one-of-a-kind style. It even offers a manual transmission, making it the only modern pickup that gives you complete control over gear changes.
The Compass - Efficient Performance
Slotting between the Cherokee and the Renegade in the Jeep lineup, the Compass is the perfect fit for a wide range of drivers. The small SUV provides a great blend of comfort, cargo space, efficiency, and performance - all at an affordable price. While it may not have the off-road abilities of the Wrangler or the raw power of the Grand Cherokee, the Compass brings a bit of Jeep style and off-road capability to the everyday driver. This is a popular option with Colorado drivers, especially when equipped with Jeep’s exceptional 4x4 system, as it can handle all four seasons safely and confidently.
Introduced in 2007, the Compass has been through two generations. The first generation was a boxier vehicle with round headlights and a large seven-slot grille and is a great low-cost purchase on the used market. There are two engine options available: a 2.0L four-cylinder and a 2.4L four-cylinder. However, the power difference isn’t huge. The bigger choice is whether to select a manual or automatic transmission, as both are options. The second-generation Compass launched in 2017, adopting a sleeker and more modern style and dropping the less powerful engine. If you prefer updated features, this is the model to look for.
Reasons to Buy a Used Jeep
While used cars may show a little more age than brand new cars, they also offer benefits that new cars just can't beat. In addition to their incredible value, when you shop for a used Jeep at The Faricy Boys, you know that you are getting a vehicle that you can count on. Jeeps are well-known for their rugged construction, and we go through every used vehicle on our lot with a fine-tooth comb before we put it up for sale. After our technicians have checked it out, you know that you are buying a vehicle that you can count on.
What's great about used Jeeps is that they aren’t just more affordable than new models - they also save you money compared to even other used vehicles. Jeeps hold their value extremely well, which means that you don't have to worry about depreciation nearly as much as other used vehicles. That means when it comes time to trade in your Jeep for a newer one, you will get more of your money back. Buying a used Jeep is an incredibly smart move if getting the best long-term value is your ultimate car buying goal.
Upgrade to a Higher Trim
If you choose to go the used route, you might be able to upgrade to a higher trim without going over budget. Because used vehicles are less expensive, the odds are better that you will be able to find one with all the extras. This means you'll get a higher quality vehicle or a few special features you've always wanted without the high premium generally associated with new top-trim vehicles.
Some Come Pre-Modified
When shopping The Faricy Boys for used Jeeps, you'll likely stumble upon a few modified used Jeeps for sale. They may feature larger-than-stock tires, lift kits, or other performance upgrades that you can use to conquer the wilderness without doing any of the work yourself. If you want to jump into Jeep culture as quickly as possible, visit our dealership for an incredible selection of quality used Jeeps that Colorado Springs buyers trust!
Come Try the Jeep Test Track
For car buyers that are skeptical about joining the Jeep Life, getting a little off-road experience will let you know whether or not it's right for you. Our 11-acre lot features a custom Jeep test track filled with off-road obstacles where you can test out any of our Trail Rated Jeeps. We know that a short drive on the road won’t tell you what you really want to know about these adventurous vehicles. Our goal is to get you excited about owning a Jeep and taking advantage of all its off-road capabilities. Come in and ask us if you can take a run through the Jeep test track!
Faricy Has a Long History in Colorado
The Faricy Boys dates back over 75 years when the first Faricy dealership was opened in 1942. Back then, we were a small shop and only sold one car at a time before eventually becoming a franchise for Nash Motors (which went out of business in 1954). We eventually transitioned into a Dodge and Chrysler dealership and moved to Colorado Springs in the 1950s before being handed down to the second generation of the Faricy family in the 1980s. The two brothers gave our dealership its current name, The Faricy Boys. Today, the dealership is run by the third generation of Faricy brothers, Ben and Paul Faricy, who bought out their father and uncle in 2009. Together they make a great team here at The Faricy Boys! Ben is a born salesman and handles the business end, while Paul manages the parts and service department.
Passionate About Jeep
When we come to work, we're not just selling vehicles. We're selling experiences, and it's not just something we do because it's a business either. We do it because we're passionate about Jeeps. We've never been able to put our finger on it, but Jeep people are different - in a good way. They're fun, adventurous, and ready to face challenges head-on. That's another factor that makes selling Jeeps so much fun for us here at The Faricy Boys. We not only get to discuss vehicles we're passionate about, but we get to do so with like-minded people who are ready to start new adventures!
Even if you're not buying a Jeep to conquer trails or modify for incredible offroad performance, we're in love with all of the other incredible things Jeep has to offer. For example, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee has shown us that you can have a capable vehicle that's also stylish, safe, and efficient! If you're interested in Jeeps, do yourself a favor and come see the Jeep lovers and experts here at The Faricy Boys!
We Offer the Real Deal
There's no denying that car buying can be stressful. Both the buyer and the dealer are always looking for the absolute best deal, but if there's one thing we've realized about selling cars over the years, it's that people truly appreciate honesty. This is why The Faricy Boys has a transparent pricing policy in place that prices our used vehicles at exactly what they're worth based on their market value and condition. So forget haggling, and say goodbye to worrying about the quality of your used vehicle. Our transparency also extends to the reconditioning we perform on our used car inventory. This means that you'll know exactly what we fixed, why we fixed it, and how that affects the vehicle pricing. We want you to be confident that you're dealing with the best possible people and are paying the right price. In the end, our goal is to be the dealership that other dealerships wish they could emulate because, in our opinion, nothing beats honesty!
