Certified Pre-Owned Ford in Renton

Any Certified Pre-Owned Ford in Renton is a great option because Ford gives buyers of these vehicles some really great warranty coverage. Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a comprehensive limited warranty that covers more than 1,000 components for 12 months/12,000 (whichever comes first) miles plus a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty coverage. Only the very best vehicles are awarded with this title. To do so, they must be less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. After that, it must pass a rigorous 172-point inspection by one of our factory-trained experts.

Every Certified Pre-Owned Ford in Renton comes with a CARFAX vehicle report that covers all the important information you need to know about what the vehicle went through before arriving at the dealership. This includes information on if it had ever been in an accident, service history, what type of driving it was used for (commercial, fleet vehicle, personal, etc) as well as other important information you’d like to know before making the purchase.

Pre-Owned Ford Trucks near Tukwila

When looking for Pre-Owned Ford Trucks near Tukwila, you’ll need to first establish what size truck you’re after. The Ford Ranger has been around for decades and offers buyers a smaller pickup. There is also the best-selling full-size F-150 for those in need of a larger truck for work or play.

Many Ranger model years are powered by either a four-cylinder or six-cylinder engine. Most four-cylinder Rangers will come in a manual transmission platform that sends power to the rear wheels. Step up to the six-cylinder and choose between either a manual or automatic transmission. There are two body styles for the Ranger: regular-cab or extended-cab. Each body style is further broken down into three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Sport. Standard on many model years is a 6′ bed capable of being put to work. Features of these Pre-Owned Ford Trucks near Tukwila include alloy wheels, remote engine start, a rear sliding window, keyless entry, bucket seats, sidestep bars, skid plates, tow hooks, a full-size spare tire, heavy-duty gas shocks, satellite radio, full power accessories, foglamps, air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, stereo with CD player, and more.


One reason buyers go with the Ranger is the fuel economy. Choose a four-cylinder manual transmission Ranger and earn gas mileage in the low-to-mid 20s. Safety features of many model years include four-wheel antilock brakes (front disc, rear drum), front side airbags, and stability control. This is the type of truck for those wanting a simple work vehicle that will last a very long time.

Other Pre-Owned Ford Trucks near Tukwila would be the F-150 lineup. This lineup has plenty of variation to sample from. To start, choose from three body styles: Regular Cab, Super Crew, and Super Cab. “Built Ford Tough” is the slogan most commonly referred to when speaking about the F-150. That’s because engineers have fine-tuned the frame over the years to be stronger and lighter. This means better fuel economy ratings and a truck capable of towing and hauling more payload. May model years have a whopping nine trim levels to choose from: XL, STX, XLT, FX2/FX4, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Harley-Davidson, and SVT Raptor. Like the Ranger, the F-150 has different engine options that open up different features. Go with the V6 engine and earn better gas mileage, while still being able to tow a moderate amount. Step up to the V8 and have enough power to take you, your friends, and all of their toys wherever you’d like to do. Come see us in person at 101 SW Grady Way, Renton, WA 98057.
