Extreme Dodge History 

Twenty years ago, Wes Lutz opened the new Extreme Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Jackson, MI.  Everything about the dealership flew in the face how traditional car dealers approach selling new and used cars. 

Lutz wasn’t new to the car biz.  “When I travel, I always go to 3 or 4 dealerships to see if I’m missing something,” he said. “I would walk into stores and I hated it.  I was intimidated by the process and thought; this is what people think of me.  And I was compelled to change that.”

At Extreme, it started with attracting quality talent to implement an unexpectedly enjoyable experience for customers.  Today, compared to our industry peers, we have lower turnover and more competitive compensation.  We operate with arguably the leanest team in the industry – because our employees are experts at their jobs and given the tools they need to succeed personally and provide a great experience for customers. 

Stay tuned for more news, make/model reviews from both our new and used car inventories, and stories from the dealership and the communities we serve. Extreme has been featured in the auto industry publication DrivingSales News, for their innovative customer and employee experience.  Here is Wes Lutz’s interview with DrivingSales.
