Aluminum 2015 Ford F-150

Now this is something to read about. Ford Motor Company recently unveiled a brand new 2015 Ford F-150 built almost entirely out of aluminum! You’re correct when you assume that any other F-150 has been constructed out of complete steel. Now, why aluminum?

Still out of the ordinary, aluminum has been used on vehicles before the first Ford F-series models began selling in 1948. Aluminum is a much lighter material, removing around 700 pounds off the original steel model. A lighter frame made of aluminum is Ford’s move to switch beyond the traditional steel heavy-duty truck. Customers and small business owners sometimes prefer a more fuel-efficient truck, spending less money on fuel-efficient vehicles and this is the answer. The 2015 Ford F-150 is 97% aluminum. That’s never been done before! The F-150 and F-250 Ford truck series are top-sellers in the automotive market. Ford even sold an F-Series truck every 41 seconds last year. 41 seconds!

For two years, Ford gave aluminum prototype F-150’s to three different mining, construction and power companies without revealing they weren’t made of steel. Guess what happened?  The companies couldn’t even tell the difference. This might just completely revolutionize the way heavy-duty “Built Ford Tough” trucks will be manufactured. Keep an eye out for the 2015 F-150 going on sale later this year at the Uftring Automall in East Peoria. What are your thoughts on steel vs. aluminum?

2015 Chrysler 200

The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is like Christmas morning for any automotive enthusiast. We always enjoy learning what’s coming up next, and what models we have to look forward to in the coming year. The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan was unveiled at the Michigan auto show and we can’t wait to get our hands on it just as much as you can’t wait for a test drive. With up to 35 MPG highway and available 295 horsepower, this brand new Chrysler next-generation midsize sedan has been designed to fit you.

The brand new 2015 Chrysler 200 has more available horsepower than its competitors, including the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Chevy Malibu. This new sedan has a class-exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission—very unique!

We understand and value the importance of safety, and with the new 2015 Chrysler 200, you can feel very safe every time you go for a ride. Having that peace of mind knowing you’re driving one of the safest vehicles on the market is something that can’t be bought. What’s so safe about the Chrysler 200? For starters, it has 8 standard airbags and a steel constructed cage to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible. The new Chrysler 200 also offers features that keep you safe including the available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking and available Perpendicular Park Assist.

The 2014 Range Rover Sport, a favorite

“Design is a gateway to desirability...every detail has a purpose.” – Land Rover USA

The Range Rover Sport is said to be the most dynamic Land Rover model yet. Illinois weather can be full of surprises, and having a vehicle you can trust in the ice, snow, rain or shine is so important. With a 2014 Range Rover Sport, you’ll feel safe and secure on any and every type of terrain.

One of the benefits of purchasing a Land Rover is the ability to make the vehicle model so unique to you. There are many varieties of the Range Rover Sport, and you can select specific features you want to fit your needs and even match your exclusive personality! From the color and leather to the type of wheel design, it is possible to make your Range Rover Sport be just as rare as you are.

Want speed? The 3.0L V6 in the 2014 Range Rover Sport goes from 0-60MPH is under 7 seconds. It’s athletic, it’s fun. And don’t forget that luxury doesn’t always have to come with a huge price tag.

We are the only downstate Jaguar Land Rover Peoria dealership in Illinois! If you haven’t been to our store, we invite you to stop by and see a new Range Rover Sport for yourself, or take it for a test drive on our giant rock test track!
