Continued innovation at CarGurus through COVID-19

Posted by Sarah Pekala on April 24, 2020

While our workspaces may look a little different these days, the CarGurus Product teams are continuing to build new features and product updates that matter to our dealer partners. Here are the key CarGurus product improvements you can expect now, and in the weeks to come.

Improvements to the Pricing Tool

You may see slight differences in the tool when it launches in your dealer dashboard.

Our dealers spoke and we listened. We’re relaunching The Pricing Tool in the CarGurus Dealer Dashboard in May with a sleek, new design that allows you to sort, find, and edit your vehicles quickly and easily. See the new tool in action in the short video above.

We’re excited to launch a new look to the CarGurus Search Results Page (SRP) that has successfully improved buyer engagement. Search results are now shown in tiles, allowing for a larger photo and direct lead and phone connections from the SRP.
