A certified pre-owned (CPO) Ford can give you the peace of mind of a manufacturer’s warranty while being more affordable than a new model thanks to a few years of depreciation. From rugged trucks to exciting sports cars to practical sedans and SUVs, Ford has a little something, which results in a lot of attractive offerings on the CPO market.
Here are six great CPO Fords you can find on Autotrader for less than $25,000 in 2019.
2015-2019 Ford Mustang
The Ford Mustang is an American icon for good reasons. Not only is it fun to drive and fun to look at, but it’s also a terrific bargain. That’s even truer if you’re shopping certified. Unfortunately, you probably won’t find any V8-powered GT models at this price point, but there are plenty of affordable CPO Mustangs powered by the turbocharged EcoBoost inline four, which strikes a satisfying balance of performance and fuel economy. If you want a Mustang that’s a little more traditional, there’s also a V6 option. No matter which one you go with, you’re getting a cool modern sports car without breaking the bank.

2015-2019 Ford Edge
The Ford Edge is a stylish and practical midsize SUV that is full of surprises. Not only is it safe and reliable like you might expect of a Ford SUV, but it has an upscale interior, agile handling and strong engine choices. The fact that the Edge is a practical and affordable SUV isn’t surprising, but its luxurious nature and its fun-to-drive character are icing on the cake making for the complete package in a midsize crossover. The base engine is great on gas and the optional twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 is a riot, which is good news for enthusiasts who need a practical family SUV. Find a Ford Edge for sale
2014-2019 Ford Flex
The Ford Flex is one of the quirkier midsize crossover offerings out there and it’s a great deal on the CPO market. In fact, we hesitate to call it a crossover since it’s more like a traditional station wagon. With a boxy, space-efficient design and three rows of seats, the Flex is big on practicality. Not only that, but it’s available with a twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 making a whopping 365 horsepower, which gives this family wagon some surprising muscle. With a spacious cabin, nimble handling and a rip-roaring available V6, the versatile Flex is an understated wagon that deserves some attention. Find a Ford Flex for sale
2017-2019 Ford Fusion
The second-generation Ford Fusion got a nice face-lift for the 2017 model year, giving it a revised look inside and out, new Sport and Platinum trims, and the SYNC 3 infotainment system became available, which is a big improvement over the previous system. The Fusion is available with all-wheel drive and a wide variety of engines including efficient 4-cylinders, a high-performance EcoBoost V6, and even a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid. The Fusions other virtues include a roomy, upscale cabin and generous cargo space, making it a pleasant place for you on your commute or your family on a long trip. Find a Ford Fusion for sale
2014-2019 Ford Taurus
The Ford Taurus is a name synonymous with practical, reliable family transportation and that reputation holds up with the most recent model. The full-size Taurus comes with plenty of interior space, a comfortable ride and a huge trunk, making it perfectly fit the mold of the traditional American sedan. It also has available AWD, which is great for extra traction in inclement weather when the roads get nasty. If you’re looking for a bit of a sleeper sport sedan, the Taurus SHO comes with the same EcoBoost V6 as the aforementioned Flex adding a little extra fun to this practical sedan.

Like the Fusion, the Ford Escape was refreshed for 2017 keeping it competitive in the compact SUV segment.
