The five biggest dealership groups in the U.S. maintained their spots on Automotive News' annual ranking of the top 150 dealership groups based in the U.S.
Topping the list for 2020 was AutoNation, followed by Penske Automotive Group, Lithia Motors, Group 1 Automotive and Hendrick Automotive Group. The groups were ranked using 2020 retail new-vehicle sales.
Then the changes began. Asbury Automotive Group, which acquired several Park Place Dealerships stores in Texas in 2020, moved up to No. 6. Sonic Automotive dropped to No. 7.
Larry H. Miller Dealerships stayed at the No. 8 spot, while Ken Garff Automotive Group moved up one spot to No. 9. David Wilson Automotive Group came in at No. 10, up two places from a year ago. Falling out of the top 10 was Staluppi Auto Group, which dropped three places to No. 12.
