Stivers Ford has completed its much-anticipated move from downtown Birmingham to the Palisades Shopping Center.
The last day at the facility at 19th Street and 2nd Avenue—which has been home to a Ford dealership since the late 1930s—was Friday, February 9th.
Stivers Ford’s first fully operational day at its new Palisades location is Monday, February 12th.
The massive new facility remains in Birmingham and when they turn on the lights this week, it will become the largest Ford dealership in Alabama.
Stivers Ford new location — the details
Bham Now caught up with Stivers Ford General Manager Manny Gonzalez to get all the details about the amenities at the new location.
What to expect with the new Stivers Ford at the Palisades:
- Home to the first standalone Ford Bronco building in the southeast
- Offers an on-site quick lane that provides quick and convenient maintenance for all makes + models allowing customers to get back on the road quickly
- Provides Ford mobile service vans (they have 9 mobile service vans in their fleet) to service customers with vehicle maintenance, designed to bring convenience + efficiency by offering at-home and work maintenance + repair services
- Twelve 24/7 public facing EV charging stations
Location: 500 Palisades Blvd, Birmingham, AL 35209
Stivers Ford is committed to Birmingham
In addition to the new dealership, Stivers Ford is currently constructing a Ford Pro Elite facility at 2941 30th Street North in Birmingham. The 60,000+ Square foot service facility is designed specifically for heavy duty fleet and commercial vehicle repair.
Once that Ford Pro Elite is completed, Stivers will have a total of 90 service bays at both locations.
The new and much larger dealership and service facility will create 80 new jobs and employ over 150 people.
What’s next Downtown?
Presently, there is no news to report about what’s next at the former Adamson Ford/Stivers Ford sites in downtown Birmingham. With its close proximity to Railroad Park, we look forward to some new and exciting development.
Meanwhile, Birmingham is now home to the largest Ford dealership in the state and a newly revitalized Palisades Shopping Center.
