Shopping for a vehicle used to mean calling dealer after dealer, comparing various websites, or showing up at a lot only to discover your dream car was no longer in stock. Vehicle buyers now demand a straightforward journey, with complete and honest information, the ability to research at their leisure, and most importantly, an inventory that allows for one-stop shopping.
For decades now, consumers have been empowered to visit websites allowing users to browse and buy everything from books to video games, household appliances, and even an electric chainsaw if the mood should strike, all with ease. Likewise, the consumer of the 2020s is searching for a single place to browse for luxury sports cars and off-road 4x4s, with the relevant information front and center.
