2015 Mustang Could Become Top-Seller Against Competition - 07/01/2015

2015 Mustang could become Top-Seller Against Competition

PEKIN, Illi.– It has been six years since the Ford Mustang last surpassed the Chevrolet Camaro in sales, but that could easily change with the 2015 model year.

The 2015 Mustang could become the top-seller against competition like the Camaro and the Dodge Challenger now that Mustang sales are up 55 percent from last year.

To put it into perspective, Ford sold 56,571 Mustangs into May 2015, compared to Camaro sales of 33,938 and Challenger sales of 30,166, according to Autodata Corp. You don’t have to think hard to figure out why the Mustang is outselling its competitors this year considering the 50th-anniversary redesigned pony car comes with a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that pumps out 310 horsepower and still gets 32 miles per gallon on the highway.

Style and performance are obvious factors in why the 2015 Mustang could become the top-seller against competition, but who’s buying these muscle cars? Surprisingly, millennials account for 35 percent of Mustang sales now, and many of them hail from Southern California where Mustang sales shot up 117 percent.

Based on the history of Mustang sales this year, Ford believes sales data for June will show another 40 percent increase in sales, placing Ford’s prized vehicle the closest it has been in six years to achieving a best-seller status for its segment.

Some skeptics with a wait-and-see attitude are quick to point out that the 2016 Camaro and its convertible version, due in spring 2016, could pose some difficulties for Mustang sales. But if you ask us, we’re confident that the Mustang will achieve a best-seller status and keep it!

If you see the New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks at our Bartonville Area Ford Dealership, you’ll understand the quality manufacturing that goes into a Mustang, and that’s what it takes for a performance vehicle to be the best!

Ford Split-View Camera Technology Will Make You a Safer Driver - 06/26/2015

Ford Split-View Camera Technology Will Make You a Safer Driver

PEKIN, Illi.– We’ve all done it: You pull up to a stop sign, check both ways, but a bush on the corner obstructs your view– you proceed regardless. Thankfully, as you nose out into the intersection, you check again  and realize an oncoming car was this close to smashing into the side of your vehicle.

Anxiety and sighs of relief ensue after frightening incidents like this, along with the question, “Why haven’t any automakers developed solutions for drivers to see around hazardous objects?” At ease: Ford split-view camera technology will make you a safer driver from here on out.

Ford debuted the camera on the 2015 Edge and 2016 Explorer in the U.S. and China because it understands the importance of driver awareness. That’s why Ford wants all of its North American light passenger vehicles to have standard rear-view cameras by 2018, and the majority of its vehicles globally to have front cameras by 2020. 

Ford split-view camera technology will make you a safer driver because it uses real-time video feeds from 1-megapixel wide-angle lens camera located in your vehicle’s grille and tailgate. The cameras feed to a tri-panel display on your vehicle’s 8-inch screen that allows you to see around obstructions blocking your vision on either side or from straight on. Activate split-view, which turns off at 6.2 mph, to get a 180-degree view of the area in front of or behind your vehicle and notice any oncoming traffic or obstacles you would otherwise be unaware of.

Right now the 2016 F-150 has the most cameras– five– of any Ford vehicle, but the next Super Duty will contain the most advanced camera technology yet with seven camera, improving lane-keeping assistance and helping customers see better around their truck and trailer. Ford's camera technology is just one of the reasons we feel comfortable selling New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks at our Ford Dealership Serving Morton, IL!

At Velde Automotive Group, 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  at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or Velde Cadillac Buick GMC is located at 2220 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554.

2015 Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty Win Edmunds.com Awards - 06/23/2015

Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty Win Edmunds.com Awards

PEKIN, Illi.– Losing is never much of an option for Ford, which explains why the 2015 Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty win Edmunds.com awards like Best Retained Value.

The 2015 Transit Connect van and the F-350 Super Duty recently won 2015 Best Retained Value Small Commercial Van and 2015 Best Retained Value Heavy Duty Truck, respectively, when Edmunds.com determined the vehicles have the highest projected residual values after 5 years after taking into account their average True Market Value price when sold as new.

The awards are important because residual value holds the most influence in deciding a vehicle’s total cost of ownership, and they help spread the word on Ford’s commitment to quality manufacturing.

The 2015 Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty win Edmunds.com awards after Edmunds.com analyzed model year 2015 vehicles that came out at the end of 2014 and had unit sales in February 2015 that were at least 25 percent of the average unit sales for a specific market segment. According to Edmunds.com, the average retained value for the Transit Connect after five years is 47 percent, and for the F-350 Super Duty it’s 58.5 percent.

On top of the Edmunds.com award, the Transit Connect was also named ALG’s Best Resale Value for midsize commercial vans, and in April the Transit Connect XLT short-wheelbase midsize van won the Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America award in the Mini Passenger Commercial Van Category.

Ford Transit Connect and F-350 Super Duty Win Edmunds.com Awards

Awards like these demonstrate how Ford approaches manufacturing quality vehicles, but if these accolades don’t speak volumes to you feel free to drop in at our Ford Dealership serving Morton, IL, and take a look at the New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks on our lot. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

At Velde Automotive Group, we are committed to providing our customers with an unbeatable level of service and a great car buying experience.

5 Manly Father's Day Gifts - 06/16/2015

PEKIN, Illi.– Is your dad what you would call a “man’s man”? If so, there’s no way you can show up this Father’s Day without a macho gift for him. Take a look at these 5 manly Father’s Day gifts and make your dad feel like Superman:

Everyone knows the manliest men use a straight razor to keep a clean look. If your dad doesn’t have one of these already, help him upgrade to the next level of manliness and give him a straight razor shaving kit.

5 Manly Father's Day Gifts

From bacon to sawdust, and gunpowder to fresh cut grass, Man Can has taken every manly scent known to, well, man, and infused them into candles. Now your dad can be indoors and still enjoy the wild-man aromas he loves.

5 Manly Father's Day Gifts

It sounds like a cliché gift, but we’re not recommending you get your dad just any barbecue sauce. Manly dads like a challenge, so let’s give him one. This Father’s Day, grill your dad a steak and put him to the test with the hottest barbecue sauce you can find.


5 Manly Father's Day Gifts

Speaking of steak, what manly dad wouldn’t want his name on every perfect medium-rare sirloin he grills? Give your dad his very own monogrammed steak brand so he can start getting the credit he deserves.

5 Manly Father's Day Gifts

So your dad is a manly guy, but maybe he’s a sophisticated tech junky, too. The only problem is that every time he whips out his smartphone he can’t help but complain about the daintiness of the device. In that case, give him a leather tablet or phone case that restores his manhood.

5 Manly Father's Day Gifts

Regardless of how masculine your dad believes he is, these 5 manly Father’s Day gifts will definitely make him more so. But gifts like these can only take a guy so far up the ladder of manhood. If your dad really wants to show how macho he is tell him to check out our inventory of New Ford Cars or New Ford Trucks at your Morton Area Ford Dealer, because there’s nothing manlier than driving a Ford!

Ford Will Fund Innovative Technology Startups - 06/15/2015

Ford Will Fund Innovative Technology Startups


PEKIN, Illi.– To say Ford dips its toe in the pool of technology at times would be an understatement. The truth is that Ford is the premier technology-driven automotive manufacturer, and it can’t help itself when it sees an opportunity to expand its influence.

Now, Ford will fund innovative technology startups through Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit– an organization that funds entrepreneurs who focus on future mobility and transportation solutions to mitigate global dilemmas like traffic congestion, parking availability, air quality and emissions.

Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit, launched in 2014 as a competitive funding program in search of entrepreneurs worthy of investment. It recently announced 10 startup winners selected from hundreds of entrants who represent 42 countries and six continents. The winners will receive office space in downtown Detroit, $120,000 in funding, three months of guidance in business development, customer acquisition and recruitment, and coaching from elite business mentors, advisors and mobility investors. It’s an entrepreneur’s dream package.

Through Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit, Ford will fund innovative technology startups ready to make a difference in the world through creativity and logical solutions. The 2015 class of entrepreneurs who were chosen for the program include:

  • Ansik
  • CDL Warrior
  • Classics & Exotics
  • Cosmos
  • Browser
  • Elegus Technologies
  • Gear Brake
  • Motoroso
  • My Dealer Service
  • SPLT
  • WISE Systems

Ford is huge player in the technology game. Just this past year, Ford announced Ford Smart Mobility, one facet of its agenda to pioneer the highest tier of connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, the customer experience and big data.

Along with backing Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit, Ford is executing more than 25 mobility experiments globally to test transportation ideas that could manifest in improved customer service, more flexible user-ship models and social collaboration. We’re betting Ford continues to back Techstars Mobility, driven by Detroit, into the future as more classes of startup companies are selected.

Ford has worked its way into an influential position for furthering technology, in hopes that it can help guide our world into a peaceful and prosperous future. Ford’s good intentions are plain to see in the number of innovative New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucksat our Morton Area Ford Dealership!

Millennials Prefer American-Made Vehicles - 06/10/2015


Millennials Prefer American-Made Vehicles


PEKIN, Illi.– According to a recent survey from Ford, the majority of Millennials prefer American-made vehicles. In particular, members of Generation Y– ages 23 to 24– and Generation Z– ages 16 to 22– believe American-made vehicles connote quality, which they value over attractiveness. Not surprising, they also see Ford as one of the top three car brands to manufacture quality vehicles.

Millennials lean in the opposite direction of their parents when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. 72 percent say they don’t feel obligated to purchase the same brand vehicles as their parents, and 91 percent trust that American-made vehicles are equal to or better than their foreign competitors.

While the majority of Millennials may disagree with their parents on brand preference, that doesn’t mean they altogether reject their parents’ opinions. When assessing a vehicle, 40 percent of Millennials will still consider their parents’ input. However, the Internet’s influence definitely doesn’t lag far behind. 38 percent value online reviews and 27 percent look to third-party quality rankings.

Overall, Millennials want to see evidence for the quality of a vehicle, not just hear about it, before they make a purchase. More than anything, including their parents’ opinions, Millennials consider factors such as cost, gas mileage, driving quality and safety features before making a vehicle purchase.

This data shows a shift in thinking. For a long time, the look of a vehicle has taken precedence, but Millennials prefer American-made vehicles because they know companies like Ford consider quality to be paramount. It’s no surprise they rank Ford as one of the top three brands to purchase from! If you’re a Millennial, come see for yourself the quality built into the New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks and our Morton Area Ford Dealership!

At Velde Automotive Group, 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  at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or Velde Cadillac Buick GMC is located at 2220 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554.

2016 Ford Escape and Fiesta Introduce SYNC 3 - 06/03/2015

2016 Ford Escape and Fiesta Introduce SYNC 3

PEKIN, Illi.– As the world’s most innovative auto manufacturer, there is no slowing down for Ford Motor Company. The automaker will prove itself once again when the 2016 Ford Escape and Fiesta introduce SYNC 3 to North America this summer.

SYNC 3, Ford’s newest version of its communications and entertainment system, will showcase a broad range of new features, including:

  • Faster performance
  • Conversational voice recognition
  • A perceptive touchscreen
  • A simpler graphical interface
  • AppLink to incorporate smartphone apps
  • Siri Eyes-Free capability for Apple iPhone
  • Software updates via Wi-Fi
  • Enhanced 911 Assist


The decision for the 2016 Ford Escape and Fiesta to introduce SYNC 3 is a strategic one. The Escape is one of Ford’s most popular vehicles, and the Fiesta is its most affordable. These vehicles will become technologically savvy and safer thanks to SYNC 3. With SYNC 3, drivers can safely connect their smartphones and use them with their vehicles without taking their focus away from the road.

Ford is already on top of the auto tech mountain, and SYNC 3 cements their position even more. It’s safe to say SYNC 3 isn’t the first time Ford has made driving more convenient than ever. All you have to do is look at the New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks at our Morton Area Ford Dealership to know that!

At Velde Automotive Group, we are committed to providing our customers with an unbeatable level of service and a great car buying experience.

Ford Electrified Vehicle Patents Opened to Competitors - 06/01/2015

Ford Electrified Vehicle Patents Opened to Competitors

PEKIN, Illi.– The word is out! Ford electrified vehicle patents are open to competitors! It was a surprising move by the automaker, which, like its competitors, is generally protective of its technology. But what may seem like an unusual move in such a competitive industry is actually one of the best things Ford could do!

With a total of 650 electrified vehicle patents and 1,000 pending, it’s no secret that Ford is a driver in automotive technology. In an effort to show its seriousness about the future, Ford applied for over 400 electrified vehicle patents in 2014, and this year the automaker plans on hiring 200 engineers to work in Ford Engineering Laboratories – where the electrified vehicle technology magic happens. Other automakers have made advancements of their own, but no one brings innovation to the table like Ford.

Progress like this has given Ford room to determine its own goals while also influencing the future of the automotive world at large. In the end, Ford electrified vehicle patents were opened to competitors in order to share invaluable insight that could ultimately benefit the industry and society much more so than keeping secrets.

While sharing its patents is definitely an act of generosity on Ford’s part, competitors can’t expect to piggyback off all of Ford’s hard work! For a fee, competitors can get their hands on Ford’s electrified vehicle patents and published patent applications by getting in touch with their technology commercialization and licensing office, or via the automaker collaborative innovation and licensing marketplace known as AutoHarvest.

It’s safe to say that no other automaker gets technology like Ford does but we’re expecting to see industry technology advance at a rapid pace in the name of collaboration. One thing is for sure: We’ll always be able to trace this technology back to vehicles like the New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks that we carry at our Morton Area Ford Dealership!

At Velde Automotive Group, 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  at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or Velde Cadillac Buick GMC is located at 2220 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554.

Ford F-150 Top Vehicle Driven by Military Members - 05/29/2015

Ford F-150 Top Vehicle Driven by Military Members

PEKIN, Illi.– A few times a year we take holidays from our stressful lives to acknowledge the efforts of our military, remembering all they do and have done to earn our country its freedom. The job of defending our country doesn’t stop for these men and women. They’re a tough bunch, and their job is even tougher, so of course they need a vehicle that can match that toughness. Which is why it comes as no surprise that in 2014, the Ford F-150 was the top vehicle driven by military members across every branch!

Call us overconfident, but it’s hardly surprising that the men and women serving in the U.S. military prefer the Ford F-150 above other vehicles. Ford’s top pickup held this honor in 2013 as well, when it was also a Top Safety Pick, and if you ask us, it’s on its way to being the top selling vehicle for military members yet again in 2015. To the men and women serving in our Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Coast Guard, we thank you for your service and for making the Ford F-150 the top vehicle driven by military members.

Military members aren’t the only people who see the value in driving a Ford F-150. For the 38th year in a row it has been the top selling vehicle nationwide! This track record speaks for itself, and that’s why we’re confident in our inventory of New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks at our TremontArea Ford Dealership!

At Velde Automotive Group, 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  at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or Velde Cadillac Buick GMC is located at 2220 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554.

2015 Ford Edge Earns Five-Star Safety Rating - 05/26/2015

2015 Ford Edge Earns Five-Star Safety Rating

PEKIN, Illi.– One glance at the 2015 Ford Edge and it’s plain to see that this crossover embodies characteristics sought after by drivers of the 21st century. We’re not just talking about style either. The new Edge means safety! Most recently, the 2015 Ford Edge earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, confirming its prominence as a crossover that glows with safety at its core.

How the 2015 Ford Edge earned a five-star NHTSA safety rating is a simple question to answer! The new Edge was redesigned with safety as its top priority to elicit the safest driving from its customers. Coupled with its innovative technology, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration deemed the Edge worthy of the distinctive, 5-star safety rating.

2015 Ford Edge Earns Five-Star Safety Rating

The Ford crossover’s safety traits run the gamut and include technology features such as: 

Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar identifies moving vehicles in front of you to alter your cruising speed accordingly. 

Collision Warning with Brake Support: As you approach another vehicle, if the following distance diminishes too quickly and the system senses a potential collision threat, it will give you visual and audio alerts while pre-charging your brakes to allow you to stop suddenly.

Inflatable Rear Safety Belts: A combination of the standard safety belt and airbag technologies to drastically reduce head, neck and chest injuries sustained in accidents. 

Standard Active Glove Box Knee Airbag: A cutting-edge design repurposes the glove box front to improve protection for passengers’ knees during a collision.  

Sensors and Cameras: To help you drive with more awareness than ever, Curve Control, side parking sensors, the new 180-degree front camera with a washer, and standard rear camera are all now available on the 2015 Edge.

The safety features available on the 2015 Ford Edge make it clear why the NHTSA has awarded this crossover with the highest safety rating from the U.S. government! Safety is one reason why we choose to provide our customers with Ford vehicles. You can find plenty of other safe, reliable, and stylish New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks at our Tremont Area Ford Dealership!

At Velde Automotive Group, 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  at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or Velde Cadillac Buick GMC is located at 2220 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554.

Ford F-150 Proves its Towing Capabilities - 05/22/2015

Ford F-150 Proves its Towing Capabilities

PEKIN, Illi.– Repeatedly celebrated for its performance, style, and reliability, the Ford F-150 is the most consistently sought-after truck. And to bolster its position as the best truck around, Ford has equipped the F-150 with some of the most advanced towing capabilities found in a pickup.

First and foremost, the Ford F-150 proves its towing capabilities with its high strength steel frame. This durable foundation enables you to control your trailer with ease and stability. Switch on the F-150’s tow/haul mode and with the support of your truck’s high strength steel frame you can tow your trailer up and down the most daunting hills with ease!

The F-150’s brawn helps you get the job done, but the brains that keep you safe are in its towing technology. The Smart Trailer Tow Connector informs you of your trailer’s connection status, gives lighting and battery alerts, provides warnings, and offers stats like gain, pitch and steering angle. To further accommodate you, it also stores information on up to ten different trailers!

Another added safety feature, Trailer Sway Control, determines if your trailer is swaying and, if necessary, applies the breaks or reduces your engine power to prevent any dangerous wavering. On top of that, the Trailer Break Controller adjusts your truck breaks to the trailer breaks to guarantee you come to smooth, safe stop.

To give you the best experience possible, the Ford F-150 proves its towing capabilitiesby offering the ultimate convenience. Instead of asking someone to spot you as you maneuver in reverse, the rearview camera featuring Dynamic Hitch Assist saves you the strain of looking over your shoulder and helps you line up your hitch with the trailer simply by looking at a screen. This means you can hitch up and go without wasting time!

                                                    
The F-150’s towing capabilities are further evidence that Ford makes the best vehicles in the industry. That’s why we offer a vast inventory of New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks at our Tremont Area Ford Dealership!

2016 Ford Mustang Package Options Available - 05/13/2015

2016 Ford Mustang Package Options Available

PEKIN, Illi. – Once again, the Ford Mustang will claim its territory as a first-rate muscle car. With a number of impressive 2016 Ford Mustang package options available, we think the new Mustang will definitely beat out competitors in both performance and style.

Two major package options at the helm of the 2016 Ford Mustang are the new Mustang California Special Package and the Pony Package. Initially popularized in the 1960s, these two package options will make a comeback for the 2016 model year. Alongside them, the Mustang GT package will bare an iconic feature making a comeback of its own – hood vent turn signals that were first used on the 1967 model, and became emblematic of the pony car category. 

The Mustang GT's available package preferences don’t end there. Various options will be available for the 2016 Mustang GT and Mustang EcoBoost®, such as over-the-top racing stripes in black or silver, and a painted black roof option. If performance trumps aesthetics in your eyes, the Performance Package on the Mustang GT convertible with manual transmission will include improved structural bracing and an updated suspension, brakes, wheels and tires, making this a Mustang GT ready to effortlessly traverse rough terrains.  Going for a tougher look? A Black Accent Package will also be available on the Mustang GT featuring 19-inch black-painted alloy wheels, a black decklid spoiler, dark taillamp trim, and black 5.0 pony logos.

While performance and style are a main focus for the 2016 Ford Mustang package options, the Mustang's technology suite is super impressive as well, featuring Ford’s new SYNC®3 communication and entertainment system. Available for Mustangs sporting the Premium Package, SYNC®3 delivers a convenient interface with enhanced voice commands and AppLink technology that is able to update system software through any open Wi-Fi network.

The 2016 Mustang clearly exemplifies Ford Motor Company's success in manufacturing some of the most alluring performance cars in the industry, but Ford’s capabilities don’t end with the 2016 Mustang. Check out these other New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks that scream excellence, or stop by our Ford Dealership near Tremont, IL

2015 GMC Canyon Has One of The 10 Best Interiors

PEKIN, Illi. – We sure hope the 2015 GMC Canyon isn't camera shy, because it's been the center of attention since its big debut! Already the recipient of numerous honors such as the Inaugural Midsize Truck Award and the Best of the Best Truck Award, the pickup now has another gold star to add to its growing list – the 2015 GMC Canyon has one of the 10 Best Interiors according to Ward's Auto!

When it came down to selecting the 10 Best Vehicle Interiors of the year out of the 42 eligible models, materials, design aesthetics, fit-and-finish, ergonomics, safety, comfort, value, and driver information were all taken into consideration. Ward's named the 2015 GMC Canyon one of the 10 Best Interiors of the year for the truck's ability to revive the stale midsize pickup segment. The Ward's team was particularly impressed by the extensive feature content which makes you feel like you're inside a well-equipped SUV, shedding the stereotypical "compact work truck" expectation. You can enjoy a Bose audio system, plush leather, user-friendly touchscreen, and advanced safety features, without having to upgrade to a full-size truck!

11-Speed Transmission Patented By Ford - 04/15/2015

11-Speed Transmission Patented By Ford

PEKIN, Illi. – The concept isn't foreign to the automotive industry – it's always about the latest and greatest. Every automotive manufacturer is constantly in a race against one another for the next best thing and Ford Motor Company just took 1st place by patenting an 11-speed automatic transmission!

Basically Ford said what's so great about an 8-speed, 9-speed, or 10-speed transmission when you can have an 11-speed automatic transmission? While it's still uber mysterious, news that Ford has patented an 11-speed automatic transmission has us dreaming infinite gears and ultimate engine efficiency. Back in real life, Ford's patent application suggests the use of planetary gearsets, and since they are not used with dual-clutch configurations, it seems the 11-speed transmission will be a conventional, torque-converter automatic.

Back when Ford decided to go for the 10-speed, the automaker actually partnered with GM to develop the transmission. But this time around, it looks like Ford's doing it alone! So, stay tuned for more information on Ford's 11-speed automatic transmission as more details become available! Or, check out the New Ford Cars and New Ford Trucks that feature the automaker's already impressive technology.
