Ford has a long-standing history of engineering and building some of the most reliable cars, trucks and SUVs on the road today. That means every new Ford car, truck and SUV on our Brandon Ford lot here in Tampa, FL, is all set to enjoy a long and happy life. Sometimes that means those new Ford cars, trucks and SUVs stick with their owner for life. Other times, those owners want to move on with a newer model year, meaning those Ford models get the chance to become either a Gold Ford Certified Pre-Owned model or a Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned model. To do that, however, these Ford models must pass an extensive series of tests and requirements to have any hope of becoming either a Gold or Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned model.
What's the difference between Gold & Blue?
That then begs the question - what is the difference between our Gold and Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned cars, trucks and SUVs? Also - which of our Ford Certified Pre-Owned cars, trucks and SUVs, whether they be Gold or Blue, is right for you? We're going to help you figure that out right here as we explain why you should buy either a Gold or Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned car, truck or SUV here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL.
What’s the Difference Between Gold and Blue Certified Pre-Owned Ford Cars, Trucks and SUVs at Brandon Ford in Tampa FL?
As we mentioned in our introduction, both our Gold Ford Certified Pre-Owned models and our Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned models must pass an extensive inspection process and meet a detailed set of requirements to even be considered for a spot on our Gold and Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned lot here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL.
And, as you can probably guess, the tougher designation to achieve is Gold Ford Certified Pre-Owned. That’s because those models must feature under 80,000 miles and be less than six years old. They must also get through an extensive 172-point inspection process performed by our certified Ford technicians.
Becoming a Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned model is no walk in the park, however. These models must feature under 120,000 miles and be less than 10 years old. And, while not quite as extensive, these models must still pass a 139-point inspection.
All of our Gold and Blue Ford Certified Pre-Owned cars, trucks and SUVs also provide you with free 24/7 roadside assistance and comprehensive warranties – all of which you can learn about by getting in touch with our friendly and knowledgeable staff here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL.
