The Ram 1500 (circa 2015-2018), as well as the Jeep Wrangler (circa 2013-2017), have been chosen for this 2019 Award that ranks them highest amidst the best certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles for consumers. This is quite the achievement and one that consumers would be wise to look to for reference when shopping around for used vehicles. A few of the guidelines taken: Autotrader limited the maximum budget for the "10 Must-shop CPO Cars" at $40,000 dollars and had to have a manufacturer's CPO warranty for up to 100,000-miles. One of the most trafficked sites for pre-owned car info, Autotrader is potentially the most recognized 3rd-party car listings brand as well. Let's get into why they found that the 1500 and the Wrangler made the grade!

About the Ram 1500 Pickup Truck
The Ram 1500 is an amazing blend of practicality, capability, style, and comfort. It pulls way out ahead of the pack in extravagance, performance, aptitude and even in annual reforms of its design. Pick a body style with or without back seats, not to mention a 60/40 split-tailgate that still has the ability to support up to 2,000-lbs! The latest Ram 1500 marks the burgeoning interest of tradespeople & families for a multi-use vehicle extraordinary quality in materials, class-exclusive technology, numerous storage options, and undeniable workhorse abilities. Ram itself carries the full-size truck segment with the highest amount of safety & security points, plus, addresses fuel efficiency in both V-6 and V-8 setups with a novel eTorque system. The 225-lbs lighter-than-ever 2019 Ram 1500 is a particularly tech-packed and yet still a dependable truck, popular with any crew. It boasts amenities like a self-leveling 4-corner air suspension system, 4-wheel disc ABS, tuned Bilstein shocks, and largest-in-class 14.9" brakes. Then it brings a hefty 12,750-lbs of towing capacity and a huge payload limit at 2,300-pounds. There's a new Uconnect 4C with a rare 12" touchscreen using split-screens, exclusive offerings from SiriusXM with 360L, and full-circle camera views. The Ram 1500 consider safety a high priority as well and adds in modern items like forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, ready alert braking, and Blind-spot Monitoring. Not to mention it has the locking the innovative RamBox Cargo Management System that everyone finds so handy!

About the 2- and 4-door Jeep Wrangler
The Jeep Wrangler touts a legacy stretching back to supporting soldiers in WWII, and yet deftly rips open the future with its excellent tech and capability offerings in the present, not to mention its popular styles. How cool is a vehicle that can still fold down the windshield, go up a mountain, and also take the pet to the park without any stress? With various powertrains, an all-new turbocharged 2.0L engine with a mild-hybrid eTorque, it can be the most fuel-frugal and/or the most-strong Wrangler to date. This signature red tow-hooked machine is built to do a lot, but it recently incorporated excellent on-road civility and comfort via design and feature additions. That said, Jeep's Trail Rated rating is nothing to scoff at, and every Wrangler model has that. It takes a special machine to traverse puddles higher than a foot of water without problems, not to mention crawl out of rocky, muddy ravines easily! That machine is commonly seen out in the wild, especially as the Rubicon setup, with its Rock-Trac 4x4 system, electronic sway bar disconnect, 33-inch BF Goodrich KO2 All-Terrain off-road tires, front/rear Dana 44 axles, and open-air top options!

What did Autotrader say about this Award?
"As more features are added to today's vehicles, new-car prices continue to rise, with even 'affordable' models costing as much as $35,000 or $40,000," said Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader. "Our list of 'good as new' vehicles can bring the car a consumer wants into the price range they want to pay. These CPO vehicles are thoroughly inspected, covered by warranties and offer the latest designs, making it difficult to even tell the difference between their new car counterparts."
