Wilde Automotive Group, one of Wisconsin’s largest auto dealers, sold its dealerships last month to Medford, Oregon-based Lithia & Driveway. The real estate was sold for more than $42.8 million, according to state property transfer records. The sale included five dealership locations, in Waukesha, West Allis and Madison.
The dealerships will retain the Wilde brand but will be operated by Lithia, which owns and operates 296 dealerships in the U.S. and 14 in Canada.
