RV Dealers Can Now Take Advantage of J.D. Power Darwin Automotive F&I Menu

Fast, Transparent F&I Sales Experience Can Drive Profit and Customer Satisfaction

J.D. Power, a global leader in data analytics and consumer intelligence, today announced that recreational vehicle (RV) dealers are now able to access the J.D Power Darwin Automotive finance and insurance (F&I) menu, previously available only to U.S. auto retailers.

“This is a game changer for RV dealers because, as RV sales continue to grow, dealers need the best tools available to efficiently describe and sell the F&I products that buyers want,” said Philip Battista, president of dealership technologies at J.D. Power. “The F&I process can be daunting for many buyers. Our F&I menu can help RV dealers make that experience much more transparent and satisfying.”

The J.D Power Darwin Automotive F&I menu, used by more than 8,000 auto retailers across the country, is a patented F&I selling solution that can maximize sales both in and out of the dealership. It uses instant remote connection technology and allows F&I professionals to control the presentation with virtually unlimited flexibility to present on paper, tablet, phone, secondary monitor or to remote customers.

Additionally, the product helps dealers speed up the process—a priority for buyers—while simultaneously providing an accurate and understandable buying experience that can also yield more F&I revenue for the dealer.

“Customizing their F&I sales system for RV dealers is a positive step for J.D. Power,” said J.D. Baker, vice president of sales at Protective Asset Protection. “Having worked with the Darwin Automotive team for many years before its acquisition by J.D. Power, I know firsthand what they’re capable of doing. Their prospect for growth in RV/marine/motorsports is even greater now.”
