Fin Ewing III - Owner
When it comes to automobiles, the Ewing family is one of the most respected and established names in DFW. The Ewing Automotive Group owns Mercedes-Benz of Plano, Ewing Buick GMC in Plano and Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Fiat in Arlington.
Our history began in 1940 when Bruton Orand moved from Waco to Dallas. He opened Orand Buick on Cedar Springs, where The Crescent Hotel now stands. The dealership survived World War II despite gas and tires rationing. It was through his core principles of serving the customer and maintaining a high level of integrity that we survived.
When Bruton Orand died in 1961, his son-in-law, Finley Ewing Jr., took over the business. Under Mr. Ewing’s leadership plans for the future growth took shape. In 1972, he was awarded one of the first Mercedes-Benz Dealerships in North Texas, Ewing Autohaus (Mercedes-Benz of Plano). Orand Buick was changed to Ewing Buick GMC a year later.
With the exciting changes, Mr. Ewing brought his son, Finley Ewing III, to the dealership to learn the business. Fin’s first job was to clean the coffee area. In his teen and college years, Fin worked in the detail department, parts department, sales and service departments. Fin took over management in 1985 and the company has never looked back.
The tradition continues; in 2014 Fin brought his son, Finley Ewing IV to learn the business and continue the legacy. Finley has worked in every department at Mercedes- Benz of Plano and Ewing Buick GMC.
October 2015 the Ewing Family celebrated the opening of two brand new facilities on Dallas Parkway & Spring Creek in Plano, Texas. The Mercedes-Benz of Plano dealership expanded to a state-of-the-art 155,000sq.ft. facility. Located adjacent is the all new Ewing Buick GMC, which boasts a 119,000sq.ft. facility including an all new body shop. In December of 2016, The Ewing Automotive Group added Ewing Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Fiat in Arlington, Texas to its portfolio.
“No matter how much we expand, we adhere to our grandfather’s conviction that you can do well if you take care of your customer.” – Fin Ewing III
