2 min read

RML Automotive NWA said Monday that has acquired three dealerships in northwest Arkansas: Everett Buick GMC in Bentonville, Everett Chevrolet in Springdale and Everett Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat in Springdale. The dealerships will now operate under the name McLarty Daniel. 

“The Everett family has done a tremendous job with these dealerships, and we look forward to building on their strong growth,” Russ Daniel, managing partner and operator of the McLarty Daniel dealerships in Bentonville, said in a news release. “This marriage creates one of the largest and most capable dealership groups in northwest Arkansas — expanding our brand coverage to deliver the highest level of customer satisfaction and value. It also allows us to increase the size and scope of our community support.”

Financial terms of the deal between the privately held companies were not disclosed.

Upon closing, the dealerships were renamed McLarty Daniel Buick GMC, McLarty Daniel Chevrolet and McLarty Daniel Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Springdale. McLarty Daniel also took control of the Everett collision center at the Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat dealership. 

The dealerships join RML Automotive’s other holdings in the region, including McLarty Daniel Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, McLarty Daniel Ford and McLarty Daniel Nissan in Bentonville.

“We love our employees and loyal customers in northwest Arkansas,” Dwight Everett, owner of Everett Automotive Group, said. “This decision is no reflection on our great team members or the northwest Arkansas community. It is simply a business decision that aligns better, long-term, with our purpose.”

Based in Little Rock and Dallas, RML Automotive is a $1.6 billion operation with 25 dealerships representing 54 franchises and seven collision centers across seven states. The Everett family owns and operates four automotive dealerships: Everett Buick GMC in Bryant; Infiniti of Central Arkansas in Benton; Toyota of Paris in Paris, Texas; and Toyota of Mt. Pleasant in Mt. Pleasant, Texas.
