About Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program

Ford has long held a high standard of quality for new and used vehicles, and the certified pre-owned program is designed to ensure you’re getting the very best performance from whatever model you want.

Essentially any used Ford Edge can reach the level of certified pre-owned if it passes through an array of tests. The 172-point vehicle inspection that it must go through is rigorous, however, and not only considers the current state of the vehicle but also its past including collisions, customizations, mileage, and much more.

If the Ford Edge can pass through the testing process which is completed at our on-site facility, it then becomes certified pre-owned and features a range of benefits for the driver including:

  • Low rate financing
  • 72 hour exchange policy
  • 12-month/12,000 mile comprehensive limited warranty coverage
  • 7-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty coverage
  • CARFAX® vehicle history report

Certified Pre-Owned vs Used

Certified pre-owned vehicles and used vehicles often get compared to one another, but certified pre-owned models simply represent the best value for your money.

First, they must pass though a more extensive testing process, providing you with ample assurance that you will be getting both high-end performance and long-term reliability from your vehicle.

In addition to this, the warranties that accompany a certified pre-owned model are lengthy, and ultimately work in your favor to help you save money. Finally, with the CARFAX® vehicle history report, you’ll have an in-depth understanding of where your vehicle has been and what you can expect from it moving forward.

Benefits of a Ford Edge

It’s difficult to nail down one or two things about the Ford Edge that really stand out because this vehicle is made to be well-rounded and versatile.

If you’re hoping for passenger and cargo space, you’ll find an ample amount of both. Infotainment technology is another massive advantage in the cabin, as is the unique style and high-rent materials spread throughout.

Additionally, this model can tackle the rugged terrain of an off-road trail while also providing you with zippy acceleration and responsive handling on paved surfaces. Throw in cutting-edge safety technology and sleek exterior shaping and you have a highly-covetable SUV.
