If you’re looking to buy a car, you have a lot of things to think about. In addition to the make and model, you have to decide between new or used makes and models. Going with a used Ford option can be an excellent idea, especially if you pick a newer Ford model.  

Lower Costs 

The biggest benefit of buying a used model is that it will save you a lot of money. Let’s say you’re interested in a used Ford Escape. A model from 2018, for example, will have a much lower sale price than one from 2020.

If you plan on financing, you also won’t need to have as large of a down payment. Your monthly payments will be smaller as well.   

Features with More Value 

New Ford models get better every year, but older models still retain a lot of their value. This means that a vehicle that is only a few years older will still have many of the same advanced features as a new model. Plus, if there is an amenity or two missing that you really want, you may be able to have it added.  

Smart Investment  

It’s a pretty well-known fact that new cars depreciate quickly. This is why used vehicles are a smart investment, as they offer more bang for their buck. And when you go with a brand like Ford, you know you’re getting a vehicle that retains its value very well. Plus, with a certified pre-owned model, you’ll be getting a car that comes with low mileage and an extended warranty.   

As you can see, going with a used vehicle is a wise choice. Visit our Ford dealership in Shelbyville to see all of the used models we have in stock!
