West Herr Automotive Group ranked No. 22 among the nation's largest dealer groups, down two spots from a year earlier, according to Automotive News.
Orchard Park-based West Herr sold 29,486 new cars and trucks in 2016, which was the basis for the rankings of the top 150 dealer groups. It was the highest-ranked dealer group based in New York state.
West Herr's national ranking fell even though it sold 3.5 percent more new retail cars and trucks than the year before. Across all categories, West Herr sold 74,007 vehicles at 25 dealerships, and generated revenue of $1.8 billion across all departments.
Two other dealer groups with a Buffalo-area presence made the top 150: Albany-based Lia Auto Group, at No. 59 (up from No. 60) and Michigan-based Zeigler Auto Group, at No. 64 (up from No. 66).
