The DeFouw Chevrolet BMW story goes back to 1961, when founder Bill DeFouw set out with a vision in his mind and opened DeFouw Chevrolet at its original location at 12th and Main. It was in 1982 that DeFouw BMW was established, with a new BMW showroom being built in 1997.

That was the same year that Dennis Gernhardt became the President and Managing Owner of DeFouw Chevrolet BMW . In the 20 years that have followed, we have expanded and renovated our used car inventory and facilities, completed a DeFouw Chevy renovation, and expanded our Body Shop and Customer Drive-Thru facility.

Over the years, we've been the proud recipients of a range of awards and exclusive benchmarks. DeFouw Chevrolet BMW currently has the oldest tent sale in the state of Indiana, as well as the longest running tent sale in the country. We also continue to maintain a genuine commitment to the surrounding area with community involvement and generous donations to organizations like the United Way of Lafayette, the Lafayette Basketball Academy, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Relay for Life, the American Cancer Society, the Make-A-Wish Golf Outing, the Red Cross, and many more.
