Reasons to Buy a Used Jeep
While used models may show a little more age than brand-new models, they also offer benefits that new vehicles just can't beat. In addition to their incredible value, when you shop for a used Jeep here 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 for life in Colorado Springs.
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 with 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 pre-owned 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!
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 a 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, this was the last Wrangler with a straight-six engine and the first Wrangler 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 system (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 includes a 2.0L turbo, a V6 diesel, a powerful HEMI V8, and even a plug-in hybrid. It also offers modern tech features, such as an available 12.3-inch touchscreen and Uconnect 5 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 pre-owned 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 3.6L 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 rides. The SRT trim was introduced in 2012 and brought with it a larger 6.4L HEMI with 470 hp. 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 Grand Cherokee versions 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 in 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 a removable roof and doors. The only difference is that you also have over 35 cu.ft. 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, a disconnecting swaybar, and front and rear locking differentials. On the other hand, the Mojave is built for Baja-style desert running. It can keep its rear differential locked at higher speeds, 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 rare 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 luxury 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 Springs 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.
The Renegade – An Everyday Showstopper
When you’re in need of a subcompact SUV that’s just as happy on the trails as it is on I-25, the Renegade is a solid pick. Launched for the 2015 model year, this small-size traveler offers the perfect blend of efficiency and adventuring capabilities that Colorado Springs drivers are looking for, especially when the trip takes them to Golden Eagle for the weekend. Originally based off of the Fiat 500L, the unique appearance of the Renegade is what sets it apart from its competition, with its boxy design and quirky styling elements. From removable roof panels to off-road-oriented trims like the Trailhawk, the Renegade offers drivers the chance to explore without compromising on everyday ride quality.
Reinforced skid plates and Trail Rated capabilities allow it to traverse Cheyenne Mountain State Park with ease, and with its small yet agile build, it’s equally capable of zipping through city streets and parking with precision. A turbocharged engine gives the Renegade that extra boost during even mundane drives into work, while 4x4 capabilities make it easy to jet off to Rampart Range for some time in nature. Inside, this subcompact superstar effortlessly extends its quirks to its cabin, with unique shapes and badging dotted throughout. Plenty of space for gear is another perk of driving the Renegade, as its rear seats fold flat to accommodate more travel belongings.
Of course, the more recent the model year, the more advanced features will be in store. From smartphone capabilities to built-in navigation, premium audio systems, and more, enjoying the daily drive or a weekend adventure is no problem for the Renegade. A favorable towing capacity makes it adept at towing small trailers or campers out to Fountain Creek, while its rugged design provides the look and functionality drivers are searching for in their adventures. From a panoramic sunroof to LED lighting elements and other helpful and enjoyable features in newer models, the Renegade makes it easy to enjoy your time behind the wheel.
Overall, the Renegade is eye-catching, practical, and ready for any type of trip you have planned. It can easily switch from trail hopping to highway driving in an instant, which is why many Colorado Springs drivers choose to trust this subcompact SUV to guide them everywhere they need to go. If you’re on the lookout for an efficient, easy-to-handle, and fearless subcompact SUV, the Renegade is certainly a top pick, especially when you’re planning a trip to Garden of the Gods or Pikes Peak.

We Have a Long History in Colorado
The Faricy Boys dates back over 80 years to when Owen Faricy opened his first dealership 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 became 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.
