The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu at Uftring Chevy in Washington

The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is the perfect ride for this year's winter season in Peoria, Illinois. As you'll quickly notice, its all-new design has been inspired by the Chevy Camaro. This new design lends itself to its estimated 34 MPG on the highway - great for the many family gatherings you'll travel to this holiday season.

Inside, the Chevy Malibu has been upgraded to accommodate long-distance travelers in the most comfortable way. The surface in each Chevy Malibu model has been improved with premium materials like chrome, woodgrain or metallic accents. On top of these improvements, you'll find the latest in engineering and technology throughout: fuel-intelligent eAssist, regenerative braking, Chevrolet MyLink, Bluetooth wireless technology, mobile app integration and much, much more. This Chevrolet Malibu is more-than-equipped to handle Peoria Illinois weather and terrain, or the commute from Washington to Bloomington, IL.

If you live near Peoria, IL - or anywhere in the Central Illinois area, take a look at our 2013 Chevy Malibu inventory or come in to Uftring Chevrolet Washington in Washington, IL and take a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu for a test drive today!

Silverado Savings

Maybe you'll relate to this story: You have spent countless winters in snow, sleet, wind and rain driving a front wheel drive vehicle - maybe even an SUV. You know that it's a pain. Getting anywhere except for down a hill is a challenge and you drive in fear of an accident all season.

Good news: there is another way! The sturdy, reliable Chevrolet Silverado makes a safe companion for harsh Midwestern winters. The weight of the truck combined with the 4x4 capabilities makes winter weather conditions all but disappear. Our current inventory at both of our Chevy dealers - Uftring Weston in Peoria, IL and Uftring Chevrolet in Washington, IL - boasts dozens of 2012 Silverados in-stock and ready to roll. And you'll save more money than ever before because they're priced to move.

Take a look at Uftring Weston's 2012 Silverado inventory and Uftring Washington's 2012 Silverado inventory today!

Uftring Subaru is a Sponsor of Antiques Roadshow

October 19, 2012

Sean is a polite and energetic little three year old boy who lives in Washington, Illinois. Shortly after he was born, he was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a disease in which parts of the left side of the heart do not develop completely. Sean's physical activity must be monitored and he must take medication to maintain his health. Sean's family is a source of amazing support and strength.

When asked to reveal his most heartfelt wish, Sean wished to go to Disney World. This October, Sean and his family will be whisked away to Orlando to a special private villa at Give Kids the World Village, specially designed for kids with medical conditions. Sean is in store for an amazing time, including meeting Woody and Buzz Lightyear.

The Uftring Auto Group was extremely proud to provide support to the Make a Wish Foundation and I Spy a Wish - and play a small part in helping Sean see his wish come true.

On Friday, October 19th, Uftring Weston Chevy Cadillac welcomed Sean and his family to the dealership to participate in our Saturday Selldown and enjoy some cupcakes and smiles. It was a day we will remember for a long, long time.
