Sonic Automotive is expected to add roughly $200 million in revenue in its first year operating Murray BMW of Denver and Mercedes-Benz of Denver. These two dealerships bring Sonic Automotive’s footprint in the area to four dealerships as the auto group already operates Mountain States Toyota and Lone Tree Cadillac.
The deal is expected to be complete by the end of July, and is dependent on normal closing conditions — including manufacturers’ approval.
