Rosner Auto purchases Ford dealership

Rosner Auto Group, which has several Fredericksburg-area dealerships, has added a new location and automotive brand to its local lineup.

The company on Thursday closed its deal to acquire a Ford dealership from Rappahannock Motors, Rosner President Clay Huber said. The dealership will be called Rosner Ford.

Rappahannock Motors is on U.S. 301 in the Port Conway area of King George County. Rappahannock Motors also sells new Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles and will continue to do so; Rosner is taking over only the Ford dealership.

Rosner will lease the space for its new business from the owners of Rappahannock Motors, Huber said, but it will remain there for only a couple of years. The company plans to purchase property in the growing Dahlgren area of King George and build a new facility there for Rosner Ford. Huber is now looking at properties.

Rosner also runs Toyota, Scion, Nissan, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz dealerships in the Fredericksburg area as well as a large used-vehicle operation. The company also has a Chevrolet dealership in Florida.
