Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles More than 70% of all cars sold in the United States every year are used or pre-owned. That is quite the market share, considering the number of vehicles sold annually. In most areas of consumer goods, “used” and “pre-owned” are basically the same thing. However, in the automotive world, the difference is substantial. And when “certified” is added to “pre-owned”, it becomes an even bigger difference. Whether it is Cadillac certified pre-owned vehicles you are looking for or just basic info on the used car market, we’ve got you covered.
Used cars are just what they sound like. These are older cars that get sold back to dealerships or used car lots to be resold to a buyer. They are typically at a much reduced price from newer vehicles. They have miles on them and the wear and tear you would expect from a used car. Often, they do not come with any kind of inspection or warranty. This is particularly true if buying from an individual seller and not a dealership or used car lot.
Certified pre-owned vehicles, on the other hand, are certified by inspectors who make sure the vehicle has no substantial damage that would impact the integrity of the vehicle. These cars and trucks are as close to “like new” as you can get. When purchased from a dealership, they will have all the necessary paperwork to ensure the validity of the “certified pre-owned” claim. Additionally, these cars are typically covered by limited warranties. That way, if something does happen with your certified pre-owned vehicle, you will have a way of fixing it or replacing it, as long as it falls under the scope of the limited warranty. By and large, “used” cars do not offer this piece of mind.
If you are in the market for a Cadillac, certified pre-owned or other, take a look below at just a few of the Cadillac certified pre-owned vehicles we have to offer here at Frank Kent Cadillac.

2015 Cadillac SRX The Cadillac SRX is a crossover SUV with a rather roomy interior. It seats five, but if you are the kind of driver that regularly does the grocery shopping, hauls kids and book bags around, or has the kind of job that requires certain small items to be taken with you everywhere, this crossover is for you. The Cadillac SRX features 30 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, which is more than doubled to 61 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down.
Not only does it have all that cargo space it also has four different consoles for smaller storage. You will not be hurting for storage space in the 2015 Cadillac SRX.
2017 Cadillac XT5 One of the few models in the Cadillac line not considered a luxury vehicle, the Cadillac XT5 is built more for comfort. Its higher trim levels, called “Luxury,” “Premium Luxury” and “Platinum” do offer more of the stylish appointments Cadillac is known for, but this base model is still perfectly suitable for someone wanting the Cadillac class.
The Cadillac XT5 is one of the newer models to the Cadillac family. However, it has quickly gained a foothold in a very crowded crossover market. It has more interior space than most other vehicles in its class, and the seats are comfortable for both short commutes and long trips. And even though it is still relatively new, it has quickly become Cadillac’s best-selling model both in the United States and internationally. Come by and see what makes this crossover so popular.
2016 Cadillac CT6 This sedan has the unmistakable, classic look of a Cadillac. The long hood sloping down to a broad grill is easily identifiable with Cadillac sedans. The CT6 is a bit larger than most other sedans in its class. Even though its dimensions are a bit larger, it weighs considerably less than competitors. That is because Cadillac used more aluminum in building the body than in years past. This is a growing trend in the automotive industry. It does not mean that these new cars are more prone to damage in an accident. The new aluminum technology retains steel-like strength but cuts hundreds of pounds off of a car’s total weight, giving newer sedans like the Cadillac CT6 a very easy drive and, according to Cadillac, its quietest vehicle yet.
2016 Cadillac Escalade This is the granddaddy of the Cadillac line and one of the largest SUVs in the world. With seating for up to seven, this powerful SUV is actually closer to the truck chassis it is built on. It is strong enough, with a 6.2 liter V8 VORTEC engine to not only carry seven passengers but tow up to 8300 pounds. With up to 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, that’s a lot of bang for your buck.
However, the interior appointments help you remember that you are in one of the most sought after SUVs on the market. This particular vehicle has cinnamon trim with jet black accents, ventilated front seats, concierge lighting, 16-way front bucket seats, Surround Vision and so much more. This 2016 Cadillac Escalade looks just as impressive on the inside as it does on the outside.
