Who We Are – A Brief History of Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram

Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram in Walled Lake, MI

Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram is proud to be a part of the Walled Lake community. In fact, we’re the biggest Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram dealer in Walled Lake and have been named Chrysler Dealer of the Year for seven consecutive years. We have been in business here in Walled Lake since 1955, and we’re excited to continue to be an important part of the community.

Here’s a little bit of our history:

  • 1955: Opened up our store in Walled Lake with a simple philosophy — beat any price and any ad, period. The founders purchased an existing dealership when they opened.
  • 1967: Purchased 6 acres of farmland to build the current facility on the corner of South Commerce and Pontiac Trail.
  • 1996: Expanded the service department by doubling its size; also added an indoor all-weather service write-up area.
  • 1998: Added more to the campus for customers and employees, including office space, an employee lunchroom, and an automated car wash. Vehicles are now washed after every service appointment.
  • 2003: Purchased 5 acres, this time across the street on Pontiac Trail, to build the Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle facility, creating more space at the original store for new vehicles.
  • 2010: Earned a Dodge Ram franchise from Chrysler and became the biggest Dodge Ram dealer in Walled Lake.
  • 2013: Named Chrysler Dealer of the Year — and have done so every year since.
