President & Founder


      A lifelong passion for cars and an accessible, people-oriented personality are the qualities Dealer Principal Dale Wurfel brings to every interaction with every customer at Dale Wurfel Chrysler Dodge Jeep.

Building on the belief that a company is only as good as its people, Dale has developed a team of professional, friendly staff members who are committed to providing customers with the kind of consistent, personalized service you'd expect from this rural, community-oriented dealership.

Dale compliments this attentive service with an excellent selection of competitively priced, great-looking cars with lots of curb appeal. These beauties draw auto fans from far and wide, and have given rise to the dealership's well-known slogan: Hot Deals, Cool Wheels!

Dale's long history in the automotive industry began in 1974 when, at the age of 12, he started washing cars at his dad's used car lot in Welland, Ontario. Dale's father always said he had little cars driving through his veins. Since then, Dale has accumulated extensive experience in automotive sales and management, and in 2002 he launched his own dealership.

Dale plays an active role in the local community, and the dealership regularly supports charity drives, minor league hockey, conservation projects, and church events. The dealership even donated $25,000 to the Strathroy General Hospital.

Dale's love for cars has passed down to his four children, three of whom work at the dealership, and his wife, Cindy, who is the Dealerships Vice President. 

In his hours off, Dale enjoys cheering for the Blackhawks, golfing, cooking, entertaining friends, hanging out with his family including his precious grandchildren Vienna, Vito, Rocco, Brooklyn, & Bailey.

Vice President & Co-Founder


     As Dale Wurfel's biggest supporter, Cindy Wurfel is happy to help her husband maintain the ongoing success of the dealership and continually exceed customer expectations. While Dale is the public persona of Dale Wurfel Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Cindy works diligently behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.

 Cindy's presence at the dealership gives true meaning to the idea of a family-run dealership, as does the presence of their four children, who all help out in their own way. But as Cindy emphasizes, the entire staff feels like one big family, which makes the dealership such a pleasant place to both work and shop.

After hours, Cindy spends as much time as possible with family, including her lovely grandchildren Vienna, Vito, Rocco, Brooklyn, and Bailey. She also enjoys time with her friends golfing and shopping. Cindy always manages to find time to go on dates with her husband.

Pre-Owned Sales Manager


     While Dale Wurfel Chrysler Dodge Jeep may be a family run business, Josh considers all of the staff to be part of an extended family. That's one reason why Josh loves his job as the Pre-Owned vehicle sales Manager as it allows him to interact with employees from all corners of the dealership, whether it be helping a fellow sales person close a deal, organize a vehicle clean with the detailing department, or get service to take care of a safety on a lot vehicle.

Josh is responsible for an inventory of approximately 60 to 75 pre-owned vehicles, many of which are low kilometer late year models, and are competitively priced through the use of V-Auto, a pricing tool that uses information pulled from over 40,000 different automotive websites to ensure the Dale Wurfel inventory is priced correctly to market. He collaborates with the service manager and the technicians to facilitate the rigorous 150-point inspection and reconditioning process that each vehicle undergoes to ensure it meets high standards. He also ensures via checklist that each vehicle is thoroughly cleaned inside & out by the detailing department before the vehicle hits the lot.

The other reason why Josh enjoys spending time at the dealership is because he's one hardcore car guy. An enthusiast for all things cars, Josh is especially an aficionado for exotics and 'super/hyper'-cars. Josh has the opportunity to drive all sorts of Mopar vehicles, including high-end performance and customized ones. His own vehicle always being something unique.
