Kar Auto Group Inc. is adding a new franchise to the organization’s dealerships.
The new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram franchise will be located within the current Decorah Auto Center store at 1817 State Highway 9 East in Decorah.
A new facility for Decorah Auto Center Ford and Lincoln will be built on the west side of Decorah at the intersection of Highway 9 and 52 (the former location of Berg Implement) across from Windridge Implement.
A groundbreaking is scheduled for early July and a moving date is set for November 2017. The new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram dealership will stay at 1817 State Highway 9 East in Decorah.
KAR Auto Group Inc. serves Northeast Iowa, Southwest Wisconsin and Southeast Minnesota. The group includes its flagship store Decorah Auto Center, started in 1992, Decorah Chevrolet Cadillac added in 2002, Albertson Auto Center Spillville, added in 2011, and Blackhawk Motors in Prairie du Chien, Wis., added in 2015.
Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram in Decorah will join these four dealerships, while adding approximately 20 jobs in Decorah.

Officials from KAR Auto Groups Inc. said they are looking forward to serving Decorah and the surrounding towns by offering them a local Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram sales and service center.
