Combined Ford dealerships open in North Kalispell

Whitefish Ford VW and Kalispell Ford of Evergreen have united and relocated to a brand new 54,000-square-foot facility in North Kalispell that officially opens today.

The Kalispell Ford dealership has a larger capacity than both the old ones combined and features 26 service bays, said Milt Aus, who was the general manager at Kalispell Ford in Evergreen and will be the co-general manager of the new facility with his counterpart from the Whitefish store.

The new lot at 2000 Rose Crossing can hold about 300 cars, Aus said, but they hope to sell between 175 and 200 vehicles a month so will have a constant turnover in inventory.
