Dealerships are America’s Backbone

Dealerships are America’s Backbone

In light of the recent hack on CDK, it is important to highlight the importance of dealerships in the American economy.

An attack on car dealership software is an attack on the US economy.

Here’s why:

  • Over 1.1 million people are employed by local new-car and new-truck dealerships
  • Local dealerships employ workers from all backgrounds in sales, service and management occupations, often with opportunities for economic advancement
  • Dealerships have invested more than $200 billion in land, buildings and infrastructure in their local communities
  • Dealerships save consumers money through competition (and by highlighting federal and state incentives on EVs, for example 😉)
  • Dealerships are modern, with 42% of the franchised dealer workforce being millennials
