Fans of online car buying services like Carvana and Carphoria will be excited to learn that the Bob Howard Auto Group in Oklahoma City has launched their new AcceleRide® service.

AcceleRide® by Bob Howard, in partnership with parent company, Group 1 Automotive, allows online car buyers to search and shop an inventory of over 38,000 vehicles. Car shoppers can select the warranties or options they need, as well as get a trade-in evaluation or submit a credit application.

After that, AcceleRide® customers can create their own deal, including monthly payments options and whether to receive their new car by at-home delivery or for pick-up at an affiliated local dealership. Furthermore, this online car buying service is integrated with manufacturer incentives and factory rebates on all new cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans.

Of course, customers are still welcome to stop by their local Bob Howard dealers to test drive and select the model that is right for them, but the days of sitting in a finance manager’s office or dealer reception area are coming to an end.

The Bob Howard Auto Group has been serving residents of Oklahoma City for over 40 years, and includes 9 dealerships and 2 collision centers in the greater OKC area. Its most recent acquisition was Bob Howard Hyundai.

In 1997 Bob Howard merged his dealerships with those of Sterling McCall in Houston and created Group 1 Automotive, a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. Group 1 Auto, a Fortune 500 company, now fully owns and operates the Bob Howard Auto Group.

AcceleRide® is the new digital retailing arm of Group 1 Automotive, and is available directly through the Bob Howard Auto Group and its local dealership websites.

Group 1 President, Daryl Kenningham says “We’re focused on making the complete online car buying experience convenient, interactive, and even more accessible for customers. The new AcceleRide® process is currently live at 79 dealerships and will be available at all 116 Group 1 U.S. dealerships by the end of the summer.”
