The Secret Behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride - 10/13/2014

The Secret Behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride
PEKIN, Illi - When it came to improving the ride quality and lessening the amount of sound heard within the cabin of the 2015 Buick Verano, engineers at General Motors decided to make adjustments starting from the ground up - literally. The Secret Behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride? Why, it is the tires. After plenty tweaking and tuning, engineers were able to reduce the amount of noise and create a more enjoyable ride for customers by altering the Buick Verano's tires. 

Tires are a little more complex than one would think. Aside from being large chunks of rubber, the tires are made up of dozens of different components, chemicals and compounds that need to work together perfectly in order to deliver the traction, braking safety, fuel economy, tread life and road manners that today's drivers need. This is a hard combination to come by because when  adjusting the tire to accomplish one attribute, it often conflicts with another. 

The Secret Behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride So when it came to developing the secret behind the 2015 Buick Verano's Refined Ride, GM engineers needed to be sure that they created a tire that was the ultimate balance of both performance and comfort. After working closely with Continental Tire, Buick was able to create two tire packages for the Verano - a standard 17-inch P225/50R17 and 18-inch P235/45R18. The 17-inch tires forces on delivering low rolling resistance for better fuel economy and the 18-inch are designed to provide exceptional handling and a sportier feel.

Buick's ultimate goal when optimizing a tire is to reduce some cost, complexity or weight some where else within the vehicle while still delivering the ideal level of comfort and capability.

Learn more about the Buick Verano when you visit us at Velde GM! At Velde Autos, we are committed to providing our customers with an unbeatable level of service and a great car buying experience. Feel free to visit either of our dealerships, Velde Ford located at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or Velde GM is located at 2220 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554.

GMC Sierra Denali Shows Pickups Can Be Luxury Vehicles - 10/10/2014

GMC Sierra Denali Shows Pickups Can Be Luxury Vehicles
PEKIN, Illi -Auto companies are stepping up their game in order to continuously meet every pickup driver's needs. From increasing production to utilizing aluminum-based materials, companies have been really outdoing themselves in order to take the lead in this segment of the auto industry. So, what sets GMC apart from the rest? Why a dash of capability and a dose of luxury, of course.

The GMC Sierra Denali shows that pickups can be luxury vehicles by combining top of the line technical gadgets with tons of power and capability. Paired inside of the Sierra is a 6.6L V8 Duramax diesel engine with a 6-speed Allison Transmission, providing truck lovers with 765 lb. of torque AND 397 horsepower. With help from this dynamic duo under the hood, the pickup also has the ability to tow up to 13,000 pounds.


GMC Sierra Denali Shows Pickups Can Be Luxury Vehicles

Now, let's talk about the luxury that can be seen with the naked eye. Inside of the 2015 Sierra Denali, customers will find an extremely spacious cab with heated/air condition seats, driver-friendly safety features like lane departure warning that vibrates the driver's seat, turn-by-turn navigation and 4G LTE WiFi capabilities. GMC understands that many customers will be using this truck for work purposes, so they jazzed up the center console with tons of storage space and added a power panel that includes USE ports, 12-volt ports and a standard electrical outlet.

Roush Reveals First Take on 2015 Ford Mustang - 10/07/2014

Roush Reveals First Take on 2015 Ford Mustang
PEKIN, Illi - After Hennessey and Saleen revealed their plans for Ford Motor Company's latest muscle car, we should have known it wouldn't have been too much longer until Roush joined in on the fun. Roush is known for its ability to bring improved handling and bodywork to several other Ford Mustangs and of course the 2015 Ford Mustang is no exception.

Roush reveals their first take on the 2015 Ford Mustang, which includes several different stages of tune for the car. These stages are split into RS, RS1, RS2 and RS3 packages; something Roush fans are already very familiar with. Every package will feature a new body kit complete with a new grille, front bumper, truck lid spoiler and rear diffuser. Roush is also offering plenty of exterior options which include side quarter window, body side and hood scoops as well as a quad-tip performance exhaust system on the RS1 and RS2 package. 


Roush Reveals First Take on 2015 Ford Mustang

We can except some impressive enhancements from Roush's RS, RS1 and RS2 packages on the 2015 Mustang V-6, Mustang EcoBoost and Mustang GT models. Although major power train upgrades will not be available, you can still expect an impressive 435 horsepower with the RS2's 5.0-liter V-8, 310 hp for the RS1's 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder; and 300 hp for the RS's 3.7-liter V-6. At this point there are not many details on the RS3 package because its use of a supercharger requires additional tuning. 

Along with Roush revealing their first take on the 2015 Ford Mustang, they also presented the public with the pricing for the various packages. The RS upgrade starts at $4,495, $5,895 for the RS1 and $8,495 for the RS2. All packages are covered by Roush's 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Cadillac Announces Top-End Cadillac CT6 - 09/29/2014

Cadillac Announces Top-End Cadillac CT6
PEKIN, Illi - Cadillac is preparing to bring a dynamic and technologically advanced sedan to the market in late-2015. Last week Cadillac announced their plans for the top-end Cadillac CT6, a model derived from the Cadillac CTS that will be accompanying an elite group of top-class luxury cars.

The company is kicking things up a notch with this new model, which will be a step above both the CTS and XTS product lines. Amongst all of the other top-level luxury sedans, the Cadillac CT6 is sure to be the lightest and most agile. Cadillac engineers have been working vigorously to combine only the best and most efficient components for each area of this vehicle. The Cadillac CT6 is currently in development stages, but will be featuring lightweight materials as well as a new body construction technique that will reduce fuel consumption while simultaneously improving driving dynamics and safety.  

The top-end Cadillac CT6 acquired its name from its use of the CTS centerpiece carline - which currently holds the titles of "Motor Trend Car of the Year 2014", "Road & Track's Best Luxury Sedan" and "Car and Driver's "10Best". The name also represents an upcoming shift in simplifying the naming of future Cadillac models. "CT" will be used for car models and the number will indicate the size and position of the cars hierarchy of Cadillac models.

The Cadillac CT6 will be manufactured in Detroit in the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2015.

Ford Ups 2015 F-150 Convenience & Safety with 10 Awesome Driver-Assist Features - 09/25/2014

PEKIN, Illi - We are months away from the day that the most capable and technologically advanced pickup hits the showroom. Along with Ford's all-new 2015 F-150 being exceptionally efficient and significantly lighter than competing pickups, it also happens to be VERY driver-friendly. Ford has upped the 2015 F-150's convenience and safety with 10 awesome driver-assist features.  

While some of these awesome driver-assist features may look familiar, we can assure you that Ford truck customers have never seen the F-150 quite like this. Ford has equipped the 2015 F-150 with all of their top-of-the-line technology, including one CLASS-EXCLUSIVE feature that will make parallel parking this full-size pickup a piece of cake!

1. Active Park Assist: This class-exclusive system uses ultrasonic sensors and electric power-assisted steering to help you parallel park. The sensors measure the gap between two vehicles and if there is enough room for the F-150, it will automatically steer into the space.

2. Adaptive Cruise Control & Collision Warning with Brake Support: Using a front radar system, the F-150 can determine the distance and speed of vehicles ahead. This system will automatically slow to keep a consistent following distance and will set off visual and audio alerts if it detects that the distance between the vehicles is diminishing too quickly. It will also pre-charge the brakes just in case the driver needs to stop quickly.

3. Smart Trailer Tow Module: This module will show the driver if any lights on their connected trailer are not working without the driver, or passenger, ever having to get out of the vehicle.

4. Curve Control: This innovative technology helps drivers maintain control of their F-150 if they take on a curve too quickly. Curve Control will automatically reduce torque and apply four-wheel braking, reducing speed up to 10 mph in one second.

5. Multi-Contour Seats: Long day on the job? The F-150's multi-contour massaging seats can help you with that.


Ford Ups 2015 F-150 Convenience & Safety with 10 Awesome Driver-Assist Features

6. Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert: Sensors in the taillamps will monitor areas that are not visible to the driver. If the driver is attempting to switch lanes, a warning light in the sideview mirror will indicate if another vehicle is in their blind spot.

7. Lane-Keeping System: This system detects left or right-hand road lane markings and will vibrate the steering wheel to prevent the driver from drifting outside of their lane. 

8. 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display: Four exterior cameras give the driver a complete view of up to seven feet surrounding the F-150. 

Ford Ups 2015 F-150 Convenience & Safety with 10 Awesome Driver-Assist Features

9. Hill Descent Control: With the press of a button, anti-lock brakes are triggered to give the driver control while descending on a hill. 

10. Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Air pressure amounts for each tire are displayed and the driver will be altered when an individual tire is too low. 

We are only MONTHS away from seeing how Ford has upped the 2015 F-150's convenience and safety with 10 awesome driver-assist features with our own eyes. The all-new 2015 F-150 is the pickup truck of the future, offering customers greater convenience and smarter solutions than ever before.
