Gary Uftring Kicks Off 2nd Annual St. Jude Corvette Drive

Just recently, Gary Uftring helped kick off the 2nd Annual St. Jude Corvette Drive right here at Uftring Chevy in Washington - a Peoria area Chevrolet dealer. Participants drove to Memphis, toured the hospital, visited with patients and doctors, and then drove back to Peoria. This year, the participants were able to raise $65,000 to benefit the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. All of the participants had a fun and safe journey and good things were accomplished for the amazing people at St. Jude. We can't wait for the 3rd Annual event next year.

On May 6th, Lynn moved from her longtime home at the Uftring Automall to our sister store at Uftring Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in North Pekin as a service advisor - a role Lynn embraces and loves.

2014 Jaguar F-Type Arrives at Jaguar of Peoria

After months (maybe years) of anticipation, the all-new 2014 Jaguar F-Type has arrived at Jaguar Land Rover Peoria. When our Peoria, Illinois luxury dealership has something this hot and unique to offer, we want everyone to know about it. That's why we're having an F-Type introduction event - and why we've already had a huge number of test drives - even though this new Jag has only been on the lot for a few days. The elegance of the F-Type's design will be long lasting. Many of Jaguar's lifelong design cues are evident - including the J-Blade headlights and the shape of the four sided front grille. But make no mistake, the F-Type is a cat of its own - with a lower, more aggressive grille than the XF and XJ - and it's incredible. The F-Type features a driver-centric cockpit - which makes sense since it's a classic two seat sports car convertible/roadster. The cockpit is referred to as a 1+1 cabin - meaning that the emphasis is absolutely on the driver, with a distinct division between the two sides of the cabin. A prominent grab handle on the center console and different trim materials on either side are further evidence that the driver is in control of this nimble beast. The instrument cluster is advanced, refined and simple at the same time.

Here are a few additional features:

18" Vela Wheels
Sport Exhaust with Center mounted twin exhaust pipes
