Meet Your Perfect Nissan Dealership for Sale
Why Buy A Nissan Dealership?
A perennial brand. A significant portion of the US market.
Nissan commands between 7-9% of the US market, and sells well over a million vehicles each year. During the past decade, the company posted 109% US sales growth in an 8-year period.
Nissan has long established its place as one of Japan’s big three automakers. It continues to match its rivals’ reputations for reliability, outranking Honda for overall reliability, according to Consumer Reports in 2020.
With models like Rogue and Altima leading the way, Nissan sports a versatile lineup that appeals to a range of consumers at a range of price points.
More on the value of Nissan dealerships
Nissan began at the dawn of Japanese automaking, in 1911, as DAT (an acronym of founders’ names) and later Datsun, and they’ve been a major player in Japanese manufacturing from the start. The name “Nissan,” from Datsun’s holding company Nihon Sango, was first used in the 1930s in Japan.
Datsun was the company’s marque name when it arrived in the US in 1958. The brand became known for reliable, agile compact cars and sedans, like the classic Bluebird and Fairlady. It built the first mass-market sports car, the 240Z, which was soon the world’s #1 selling sports car.
In the 1980’s the company rebranded globally to one unified name – Nissan. Since the 1960s, the brand has grown and contended with its counterparts in the US, firmly establishing itself as one of the big three Japanese automakers
Today, Nissan’s lineup includes models across classes and price points. The brand offers small cars from around $15k to $43k; Crossovers and SUVs from under $20k to upwards of $70k; pickups from near $27k to over $60k; and sports cars from around $30k to over $220k MSRP.
Another option for Nissan dealers is a line of commercial vans that ranks top-5 in US sales and far out-performs those made by any other Japanese manufacturer.
Nissan’s sales leader is Rogue, accounting for over a quarter of all US sales in recent years. Altima, the next best seller, accounts for about 1 in every 6 Nissans sold.
These two high-volume vehicles are backed up by Murano and Maxima respectively, selling at a higher profit margin for those consumers with the budget to spend. Nissan also sells the Titan, a solid contender in the pickup truck market known for competing on strength while offering a smooth ride and good fuel economy.
Nissan is the world’s leading manufacturer of electric vehicles. In the US, as EVs spike in popularity, they’ve unveiled the Ariya, an electric crossover that will accompany the Leaf EV sedan in the 2021 model year.
Growing Reputation for Reliability
Nissan is continually proving its worth in this category, with several models ranking for dependability and the brand ranking better than Honda on reliability, according to Consumer Reports in 2020.
Other Profit Drivers
As a brand with great retained value, Nissan has a lot to offer with pre-owned vehicles. Nissan CPO vehicles must be less than 6 years old, have fewer than 80,000 miles, and pass a 167-point inspection.
The company offers a generous 7-year / 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, with roadside assistance, to boost the value of CPO sales. These factors all contribute to a reliable mechanism for turning leases and other trade-ins into profits.
NissanUSA.com includes a car-building tool that, when customers are done, directs them to nearby dealerships for a quote. A similar feature sends nearby customers shopping for CPO vehicles to an inventory feed that will feature your listings.
This system is a bonus for Nissan dealerships, delivering an effortless stream of leads to your business.

They’ve shown impressive growth in recent years, steadily built their reputation for reliability, and are demonstrating a strategy for a bright future in the decade to come.
