Should I Buy a CPO RAM Truck or a New Model?

December 15th, 2022 by

These days, there are more buying options than ever with RAM trucks. While you can certainly go with a new RAM vehicle, you may also want to consider a CPO RAM truck. This guide goes over the pros and cons of each.

Why Buy a New RAM?

The clear answer to this question is because you will get a pristine vehicle. With zero wear-and-tear, this is a truck you know will be in excellent condition and give you years of outstanding performance. A new RAM truck also comes with a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty that covers any factory defects.

Perhaps the only downside with a new truck is the expense. With financing, however, you don’t need to put up a lot of money in order to make a purchase.

Why Buy a CPO RAM?

While new models are in excellent condition, the same is also true of CPO (certified pre-owned) vehicles. Though they do have thousands of miles on their odometers, they have to pass a very rigorous inspection, as well as a road test.

In addition, CPO RAM vehicles get that original new car warranty extended up to seven years or 100,000 miles. They also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Care warranty. For the duration of the powertrain warranty, you will get emergency roadside assistance for things like a flat tire or dead battery.

CPO cars also include a vehicle history report that offers detailed information about previous maintenance and repairs.
