Welcome to Ed Hicks Imports!

Our Story

Ed Hicks Automotive Group has been rooted in the Corpus Christi community since 1966. Our founder, Ed Hicks (1934-2019), built the dealerships based on passion for excellence and prided himself on his tireless efforts to enrich the community where he lived and operated his businesses.


Hicks' automotive career started in Detroit, MI at Patterson Chevrolet in 1959 where he worked his way up from salesman to sales manager until the family moved to Corpus Christi in 1966.  Hicks acquired his first dealer license when he opened Ed Hicks Motors in Corpus Christi on Staples, where he specialized in selling late model preowned luxury vehicles. 7 years later, he and his wife Gloria took a leap of faith in opening Ed Hicks Datsun (former name of Nissan), months before the Oil Embargo of 1973 that created higher fuel prices and increased demand for the fuel-efficient Datsuns! The family added the Mercedes-Benz franchise in 1976 and would later add the Infiniti franchise (2011), a second Nissan franchise (2015) and the local Subaru franchise (2018).  

His business philosophy was directed by the principles of taking care of his family, his family of employees and his customers and that would create a bond of respect and loyalty to serve as the foundation of sustainable relationships.

Hicks' history in Corpus Christi is further proven by his achievements. He was a recipient of the TAMUCC Kirkland Distinguished Visitor in Business Administration Award in 2011. He served ten-years to the State of Texas as a public member of the Texas State Medical Board, was President of the Corpus Christi International Airport Board, was a member membership in the King's Men as King Alonso LIX during Buccaneer Days 2012 and proudly supported our local law enforcement as founder and chairman of the Corpus Christi Police Foundation.


The Hicks family is involved in many charitable organizations in our community, including the Corpus Christi Police Foundation, Texas A&M University Corpus Christi, the Texas State Aquarium, the USS Lexington Museum on the Bay, MD Anderson Cancer Center and Gloria Hicks Elementary School and many others.
