New QX50 factors big for Infiniti dealers
"This new model is so important to us," Parker told Automotive News after the meeting. "We really want our dealers to take their time selling it, to focus on the vehicle itself, to sell customers on its styling and its technology — not to be pressured to sell it, but to sell it on its merits."

Parker told the dealer meeting that Infiniti advertising will promote the QX50 all year, except for the two months of its annual summer sales event and the year-end sale period in November and December.

Infiniti dealer meeting: Keep an eye on gross margins, dealers told
Infiniti also told dealers it will be important to "take their time" in retailing the model, which has gotten its first full redesign since it appeared in late 2007 under the name EX.

Randy Parker, Infiniti Americas vice president, urged dealers to retail the crossover with an eye toward gross margin and view it as an opportunity to boost dealership profitability.

Parker said that, to reduce selling pressure on the vehicle, Infiniti has removed it from the factory's normal sales incentive program — a move to ensure dealers do not discount its pricing to hit monthly sales goals.

Infiniti dealers: Big win seen from QX50
Infiniti reported double-digit sales growth in 2017, and Florida dealer Mario Murgado is confident the brand is in good hands and on the right track for 2018. Key for the franchise, says Murgado, who owns Infiniti Stuart, is the launch of the redesigned QX50 crossover starting this month.

Murgado, 55, is chairman of the Infiniti National Dealer Advisory Board. He believes the QX50 represents a high-water mark for the brand, combining a roomier interior, elegant styling, an advanced new variable-compression turbo engine, and a positive working relationship between the dealer network and the manufacturer.

Nissan dealers: Retailers prepare for a new era
Dealer Advisory Board in August as Nissan completed its six-year drive to boost U.S. sales and market share. Hill, 50, is dealer principal of Hill Nissan in Winter Haven, Fla., a dealership that has been in his family since 1976, when it was an Oldsmobile-Datsun store.

The Nissan brand is entering a new phase in the U.S., says Hill, who will be board chairman for one year with an option to remain for two more years. Softening industry sales, coupled with higher interest rates and larger store inventories, are causing Nissan to turn its focus from pushing sales to helping retailers sustain profitability.

Infiniti zeros in on redesigned QX50, inventories
Infiniti expects the QX50 to become its biggest seller. But for its launch, the company plans to keep inventories low.

Mario Murgado, owner of Infiniti Stuart in Florida and chairman of the Infiniti National Dealer Advisory Board, believes that's a wise move — even though he is eager to start selling the redesigned QX50.

An early oversupply "would do none of us any good," Murgado said. "This car is the franchise. I need this car to be the most successful car and the most successful launch in the history of Infiniti."

Nissan preps push to sell Titans with training effort
The Nissan brand's push to sell more full-size Titan pickups this year is being supported with an all-out training campaign by the automaker. And in many cases, Nissan dealers really need the instruction, says Tim Hill, owner of Hill Nissan in Winter Haven, Fla., and chairman of the Nissan National Dealer Advisory Board.

"There has been a lot of training — and a lot of training is needed," Hill said. "A lot of it's new for Nissan dealers. Before, we had basically one model of the Titan. Now we're going more head-to-head with the domestics, offering many different truck variations. That's a learning curve when you haven't been selling full-sized trucks."
