IRVINE, Calif. and ATLANTA - 

Kelley Blue Book has introduced the CPO Price Advisor, which is a new source for certified pre-owned vehicle pricing that has been added to its Price Advisor product suite.

CPO Price Advisor pricing information is based on recent certified vehicle sales transactions and is adjusted for local market conditions and seasonal trends.

The KBB CPO Price Advisor is now available on KBB.com and on participating dealer websites.

“Updated for the needs of a new-age, CPO car shopper, the Kelley Blue Book CPO Price Advisor is utilizing granular data to equip consumers with the most up-to-date information possible when buying a certified vehicle,” KBB general manager Mike Sadowski said in a news release.

In addition to KBB CPO Fair Market Range and CPO Typical Listing Price information, the new CPO Price Advisor presents three different pricing zones by color — white, green and red.

The white zone represents pricing that falls below the KBB CPO Fair Market Range, the green zone reflects current market conditions for a selected vehicle in a buyer’s location and the red zone indicates an exceptionally low supply with high demand and falls above the KBB CPO Fair Market Range.

“CPO sales continue to climb with 2017 marking the seventh consecutive year for sales growth. Cox Automotive estimates sales will continue their record streak in 2018 with 2.7 million CPO vehicles sold for the year, making the need for the latest in CPO vehicle pricing a need more than ever before.”
