The History of Our Dealership

  • The Early Years – Jack Powell got his start in the auto business at Jack Powell Motors in Dearborn, MI back in 1933. That was before he moved the business to Escondido in 1958, opening up as Jack Powell DeSoto-Plymouth and beginning the 60-year journey we’re celebrating this year.
  • A Family Affair – Over the years, Jack Powell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has remained a firmly family-owned and operated business. It was in 1971 that Jack Powell, Jr. entered the business in 1971, while 2003 marked the year that Jack, Jr.’s son and daughter—Jason and Jasmine—brought the family business into its third generation. Meet the family here!
  • Onward and Upward – While the team at Jack Powell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is proud of our heritage, we know that only a forward-looking vision will keep us as competitive as we’ve been for the last 60 years. That’s why we’re excited about the full remodel of our state-of-the-art facility, which is just one of the reasons we’ve been able to continue to grow the family business to over 110 employees today.
