Cox Automotive is a leading provider of products and services spanning the automotive ecosystem. No matter the stage of the auto buying or selling process, we have a solution for clients of any size.

Our Most Important Resource: Our People 

Good ideas can come from anywhere. Back in 1920, Buster Kelley of Kelley Blue Book took a chance on an employee’s suggestion of painting a car pink – a first of its kind. It paid off and helped set the trend of cars being available in colors other than black. That same value of employee innovation is alive and well at Cox Automotive today and has allowed us to grow to 30,000 team members across more than 200 locations.

Stewards of the World We Live In

Without the communities we work in, we would be nothing. The communities where we work are also the communities where we live and play. They are a part of our family. We are passionate about making a positive difference in each and every one.


Driving Forward

In 1945, three cars went to auction. Only one was sold. Today, more than 3 million vehicles are sold at Manheim auctions each year. Whether in-lane, online or bidding from a phone hundreds of miles away, our innovative spirit has always driven our progress. From starting one of the first online used car shopping sites with Autotrader back in 1999 to the acquisition of Dealertrack, innovative thinking has always been a pillar of Cox Automotive and will continue to take us into the future.

A Shared Success

We’re only as good as our clients. Our clients’ success is our success. With more than 40,000 clients, we strive to better understand their needs so we can create efficiencies and alleviate challenges in the car buying, selling and owning process.
