The newest store in Plano is the 14th EchoPark location nationwide, continuing the rapid expansion of the specialty pre-owned vehicle brand. EchoPark Plano is now the second store in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and the sixth in the State of Texas, enabling car buyers from all over the region to shop a wide assortment of high quality, one to four year old pre-owned vehicles, priced up to 40 percent below new car pricing.

“Consumer demand for quality pre-owned vehicles is increasing throughout the nation,” said Jeff Dyke, President of Sonic Automotive and EchoPark Automotive. “Our team employs a data-driven approach in selecting new markets to build out EchoPark’s nationwide distribution network, and as one of the fastest growing markets in the country, this expansion in the Dallas/Fort Worth area will allow us to grow our market share and further develop the EchoPark brand.”

Since the launch of EchoPark in 2014, the brand has been one of the biggest success stories in pre-owned automotive retail. The Company plans to expand its EchoPark footprint to a 140-point nationwide distribution network by 2025, which is expected to retail 575,000 vehicles annually and generate $14 billion in EchoPark revenues by that time.
