The LaFontaine family's heritage selling cars dates back over 40 years.  We are proud to say we are still family-owned and dedicated to bringing "The Family Deal" to communities all over Michigan.


LaFontaine Ford of Birch Run joined LaFontaine Automotive Group in 2016 and has become ingrained in the local Birch Run community. Beyond delivering a personalized Family Deal experience to our customers, we pour into the community and its residents and fellow businesses.

Technology isn't the only jaw-dropping asset at this location. LaFontaine Ford Birch Run is very proud to be recognized as the Ford Motor Company's only Gold LEED Certified dealership in the world. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a certification program through the U.S. Green Building Council for buildings and communities that guides their design, construction, operations and maintenance toward sustainability. It's based on prerequisites and credits that a project meets to achieve a certification level: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The LaFontaine Automotive Group has achieved LEED Certification in four storefronts: Gold Certified Cadillac Buick GMC of Highland, Gold Certified Ford of Birch Run, Silver Certified Volkswagen of Dearborn, and Silver Certified Chevrolet of Dexter. The LaFontaine family is proud to participate in this program and remains committed to ensuring their facilities are designed with a positive customer experience in mind, all while being extremely environmentally and resource efficient.
