CHARLOTTE, N.C., OCT. 9, 2012 – Hendrick Automotive Group opened its first GMC franchise in the Kansas City market today as part of the newly renamed Hendrick Buick GMC Cadillac dealership. Formerly Superior Buick Cadillac, the three-franchise dealership is located at 1151 West 104th Street.
“Having GMC, along with the luxury brands of Buick and Cadillac, really completes the entire General Motors picture for us in Kansas City,” said Kirk Heppler, Executive Vice President at Hendrick Automotive Group. “This is a brand that we very much wanted to add in the market. With the purchase of the franchise we now offer a full line of GMC trucks, SUVs and light duty commercial vehicles. This allows us to provide our customers, and former Roberts GMC customers, terrific GM products and service provided by trained Hendrick Automotive Group technicians.”
Hendrick Automotive Group’s Volvo dealership, also on 104th Street, also changed names, from Superior Volvo to Hendrick Volvo of Kansas City, today. Hendrick Buick GMC Cadillac and Hendrick Volvo of Kansas City are the fifth and sixth of eight Hendrick Automotive Group dealerships in the Kansas City market to transition from the Superior name to Hendrick. All eight dealerships will carry the Hendrick name by mid-summer 2013.
“We’re excited about the Hendrick name changes in the market,” Heppler said. “All of our stores in the area carrying the Hendrick name will create more continuity and opportunities for our brand in the Kansas City market.”
The 37,000-square-foot Hendrick Buick GMC Cadillac offers nearly 240 cars on site, including 60 GMCs. The dealership also has 21 service bays, free Wi-Fi for customers, loaner service and complimentary roadside service for all three brands.
Louis Faller will continue as the dealership’s General Manager, offering more than six years of experience at Hendrick Buick GMC Cadillac.
Next summer, GMC and Buick will move from the current location into the existing Superior Lexus building at 1200 West 104th Street in Kansas City after Lexus moves to a newly-constructed store at 6935 West Frontage Road in Merriam. Cadillac will remain at its current location.
