EVERETT — Dwayne Lane’s Family of Auto Centers has acquired North Cascade Ford in Sedro-Woolley, which extends the dealership’s footprint outside of Snohomish County for the first time.

The Lane family dealership group also represents Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram trucks in Everett and Chevrolet in Arlington.

Company president Tom Lane said he’s excited to add Ford to the lineup of vehicles his dealerships represent and for the company’s expansion into Skagit County.
