The U.S. automotive industry continues its strong performance in the New, Used and wholesale markets. Auction and nonauction volumes are projected to increase in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Although much of the growth will be accounted for by off-lease vehicles, there will also be growth in the number of rental, commercial fleet, repossessions and dealer units wholesaled each year.1

In 2013, New car sales rose for the fourth consecutive year to 15.6 million units, with average transaction prices up by more than $2,000 since 2009.1 Sales are projected to exceed 16 million units in 2014.1 The news is equally good for the Used car market. December 2013 closed out the fifth straight year of Used car price growth.2

Cox Automotive helps fuel this growth by transforming the wholesale and retail vehicle buying and selling experience through investments in technology and innovative products and services. We continue to focus on evolving the customer experience with solutions to meet the exploding shift in mobile usage, consumer access and customer expectations.
