The dealership underwent a transition of ownership in early 2017, but the new owner is no stranger to the 27+ acre compound with thousands of vehicles and over 200 employees. Indeed, President and Owner, Mark Montenero has been an integral part of Autoland for over a decade and works diligently to maintain a rich company culture that has been developing for over half a century.
The robust history of Autoland began in the mid-1940’s when a young Donald Toresco first ventured into the automotive industry. In 1964, after years of hard work and dedication Toresco was able to open his first dealership in North Plainfield, NJ. Somerset Motors grew quickly to be a very well-known and respected dealership. In 1968, Mr. Toresco expanded his dealership and opened North Plainfield Dodge, offering both new and used vehicles to the community.
By 1975, the store had been reborn as Dodgeland and was the largest Chrysler Corporation dealership in the country. But Mr. Toresco kept dreaming BIG. In the early 1980’s he began construction of the world’s first automall. The dream was realized when building was complete and his customers could choose between Toyota, Scion, Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep products.
Autoland’s goal is to provide each customer with a quality product while maintaining the number one goal of customer satisfaction. Autoland has achieved numerous awards and honors from manufacturers, vendors, and the community and is most proud of being recognized as one of the first car dealers in NJ to implement an extensive employee assistance program, managed by a certified therapist and counselor, realizing that the health and wellbeing of their employees has a direct impact on the customer experience.
Mr. Montenero, serves on various automotive boards and is highly regarded within the automotive industry. He is a firm believer in community and continues to carry the torch for philanthropy, education and civic support that Mr. Toresco held dear.
Autoland prides itself on providing a different kind of experience. They believe that it is important to contribute to the greater cause. That’s why they go beyond providing customers with great vehicles at excellent prices. They like to give back.
