-- Across the country auto dealers are reporting that 2012 was a strong sales year, and Cox Chevrolet in Bradenton, Florida (http://www.coxmazda.com/
fl) has announced that it was the most profitable year in the 86 years the Cox Family has sold automobiles in the community. Analysts are predicting sales in 2013 will be even stronger for them, as more models are being introduced to a market with increasing demand. With about fifteen million new vehicles sold nationwide in 2012, projected sales will exceed that number by up to 7%. Cox Chevrolet General Sales Manager John Rudd agrees with the assessment after a record setting 2012, and looks forward to serving his customers in the New Year. Cox Chevrolet carries hundreds of new Chevrolet models as well as pre-owned vehicles from a variety of respected automakers.
The Cox Family’s Chevrolet dealership was first established in 1926 in Georgia. The family ran two separate dealerships, then in 1932 both dealerships were sold and the family relocated to Bradenton Florida, where it established a single location in the city. Cox Chevrolet remains in the family to this day and is now run by the 5th generation of the family. Cox Chevrolet’s sister dealership, Cox Mazda, was established ten years ago.
Both Cox Chevrolet and Cox Mazda, along with other area dealerships, all reported higher sales in 2012. In some cases the dealerships were not able to keep particular models on the lot.
With the rising cost of fuel, many buyers chose to trade in their older cars for smaller, more fuel-efficient four-cylinder models in 2012. Manufacturer promotions and rebates along with a number of model upgrades also helped to draw in buyers who have been putting off investing in a new car. Many manufacturers also made the decision to offer financing to buyers in a wider range of credit situations to help boost sales.
For 2013, analysts predict sales to continue the upward trend of the previous year. Small and midsize cars are expected to continue to sell well, and the sales figures of large pickup trucks are also expected to rise.
