In its 19th year, The Ward's 500, is a list of top U.S. dealerships ranked by total revenues, including sales from new and used vehicles, finance and insurance and fixed-operations departments (service, parts and body shops).

While Ward's does not claim the list is of the top 500 dealerships (participation is voluntary, and some major dealerships withhold their numbers for whatever reasons), the ranking is the oldest and most comprehensive of its kind, and accurately represents what is going on at the top tier of automotive retailing.

If you believe your dealership's revenues qualify it for future inclusion on the Ward's 500, e-mail Cliff Banks at cbanks@wardsauto.com.
