The CarGurus Product teams have been hard at work, continuing to build new features and product enhancements that give our dealer partners more of what they need to succeed. Here are the key CarGurus product improvements you can expect now, and in the weeks to come.
We’re excited to announce a major expansion in our automotive retail offerings with the launch of CarGurus Digital Deal, a retail platform that allows shoppers to build a personalized, near penny-perfect deal through dealers’ CarGurus listing pages.
CarGurus CEO Jason Trevisan sat down with The Boston Globe to discuss the ongoing supply shortages and why they may linger longer than anticipated.
In 2019, we introduced Navigate, a first-of-its-kind conference where automotive insights meet action through inspiring content from industry leaders and face-to-face networking opportunities. In 2020 and 2021, we brought that same energy and excitement to you virtually. And this year, we’re excited to announce Navigate on the Road, a series of regional events that will bring everything you love about Navigate to a city near you – kicking off with Dallas, Texas in May.
Earlier this month, we announced our 2022 CarGurus Top-Rated Dealer Awards recognizing an exclusive group of our dealer partners who earned an average dealer rating of 4.5 stars or higher and collected at least five verified customer reviews in 2021. Congratulations on delivering exceptional customer service day in and day out!
While earning the award isn’t easy, promoting your accomplishment – and putting it to work for your dealership – is! Here are our top tips for showcasing your award using the assets available to all winners on a premium listings package:
The NADA Show is always a favorite of ours, and this year was no exception. It was so great to be back in person with both current dealer partners and those who were just interested in learning more about CarGurus. Here’s the team in action giving demos and having conversations at our booth.
Today’s the day! We’re thrilled to announce the winners of our 8th annual CarGurus Top-Rated Dealer Awards. Consumers left thousands of reviews on CarGurus last year, and these dealers rose to the top. Based on real car buyers’ reviews across the country, winning dealers had an average dealer rating of 4.5 stars or higher and collected a minimum of five verified reviews in 2021.
The CarGurus team will head to Las Vegas, NV for the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show — one of the industry’s premier events. We’re excited for our return to in-person events and the chance to connect with our dealer partners face to face.
Stop by our booth (#3253W) where you can take a ride in our racecar driving simulator and learn how CarGurus and CarOffer can help you achieve your sales goals this year. Our team will be there to answer any questions you have, provide performance reviews, and showcase how our products can help your dealership manage the entire pre-owned vehicle lifecycle. If you are a CarGurus 2022 Top-Rated Dealer, come to the booth to claim your exclusive gift.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded the Sell My Car program to include our first state on the West Coast! Sell My Car is now available to shoppers and dealers in California.
No need to request access – dealers subscribed to both CarGurus and CarOffer will be automatically enrolled in this program as “landed dealers.” Being a landed dealer means you’ll get exclusive first access to local inventory sold through the CarGurus Sell My Car page.
“Demand is still strong in the marketplace and we could be seeing sales in the 17 million unit range (for 2022). So most likely if vehicle production picks up we’ll see recovery in sales before recovery in inventory.”
Although there were inventory gains in December, inventory acquisition remains top of mind for dealers looking for new ways to stock their lots and meet strong consumer demand. Kevin Roberts, CarGurus Director of Industry Insights & Analytics, recently spoke with CNBC and Forbes on the topic, sharing insight into what dealers can expect in the future.
