HW Hunter Ram of The West Truck Center celebrates the grand opening today of its 40,000-square-foot Ram facility, which is now the largest Ram stand-alone dealership in the country by size.
The facility, which sits on seven acres in Lancaster, California and cost more than $10 million to build, was designed by HW Hunter co-owners Tim and Tom Fuller to meet growing demand for all of the Ram nameplates.
"Our customers deserve the finest sales and service experience possible and with this new expansion we can address all of their needs whether it is buying a new truck or just getting the oil changed," said Tom Fuller.
The Ram of the West Truck Center is part of a multiyear strategy by FCA US LLC to open more stand-alone Ram dealerships in select markets. The Ram brand, launched in 2009, has seen significant sales growth, especially this year with the introduction of the all-new Ram 1500 light-duty pickup truck. FCA is selling the new truck alongside the older version known as Ram Classic.
The move has driven Ram brand sales to historic levels. The Ram brand reported its highest August sales ever with more than 54,800 vehicles sold. The Ram brand includes both light-duty and heavy-duty pickups, ProMaster and ProMaster City vans.
The Ram of the West Truck Center offers a variety of features, including three state-of-the-art Quick Lube stalls for oil changes and fast maintenance, heavy-duty lifts, large service bays and a well-stocked parts and accessories department. It employs 70 people.
"We appreciate the Fuller's commitment to the Ram brand with this new world-class facility," said Jason Stoicevich, Director of the California Business Center, FCA US. "This provides a new level of increased customer service for their community."
HW Hunter has served the Antelope Valley since 1944. The dealership sells not only Ram trucks, but also Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, Ram and Fiat vehicles. The Fullers are the grandsons of dealership founder H.W. "Hank" Hunter.
