Compare Gold and Blue Certified
The primary differences between Gold and Blue Certified used vehicles are age and mileage. Gold vehicles are up to 6 years old with less than 80,000 miles. Blue vehicles are up to 10 years old with less than 120,000 miles. As the charts show, the warranty coverages differ, but there are many similar ownership benefits.
Two Levels of Certification to Meet Your Needs
The Ford Blue Advantage features two levels of certification, Gold and Blue, based upon several factors, including a used vehicle’s age and mileage.
