2022 INFORMATION ON CARS INCLUDING ELECTRIC

8-27   Word is out of a possible Electric Camaro Sedan ???     Now I am sure that all current Chevy Camaro owners are pulling their hair out by now and saying … This just can’t be happening … This isn’t right…?  Ok, hold your horses, it’s not happening just now, it’s a few years away…  So relax, and enjoy the few years that you have to cruise down the highway in your new combustion engine till approximately 2025 or 2026 estimated…!  The electric Camaro sedan is based on the current, sixth-generation model, but with several key changes… First, we added two more doors while shortening the length of the front ones, to accommodate the sedan layout… We then added an EV-friendly front fascia that keeps some styling from the sixth-gen Camaro, while borrowing some cues from the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt SUV, such as the blocked-off grille/grille insert… So you see folks, Chevy does have a plan moving forward to the environment-friendly electric Chevy Camaro… Enjoy the few years you have as of this date, 8-27-2021… Eagle-eyed readers will notice that the SS-style heat extractor on the hood is present, even though it likely won’t be necessary or functional… Outback, we replaced the familiar dual exhaust in favor of a clean lower fascia… And we’re banking on the flexible packaging of the General Motors Ultrium battery pack and BEV3 platform to make the rear seat adult-friendly… The entire ensemble of this electric Camaro sedan rides on a set of multi-five-spoke 19-inch wheels optimized for the enhanced aerodynamic properties of an EV… As exclusively reported in June, the time frame for discontinuation of the current, sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is rather fluid, with uncertainty as to when the current generation will be sunset… The original plan involved discontinuing the current, internal combustion-engined muscle car in 2023, after the 2024 model year… However, sources have also said that a plan is being considered that extends the sixth-gen Camaro program through the 2026 model year… After that, the Camaro will likely evolve into an all-new, all-electric vehicle… How many doors that the car will have is currently unclear, but given that Chevy will find itself without a single sedan no matter the door count… It’s worth noting that a future Camaro EV will be supported by  Chevrolet’s $35 billion investment to develop new electric and autonomous vehicles through 2025… The result of that plan will have the automaker plans to launch at least 20 new EV models in North America in the next five years before migrating its entire light-vehicle portfolio to EV by 2035…                                                                                                                                                                                                        *****************************************

  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert

8-21  Look for the all-new 2023 Honda CR-V to launch next year…!                                                As for the powertrain, the Honda CR-V will continue to utilize internal combustion for power while an electrified hybrid will also be offered…  An all-electric model variant will not be part of the lineup…!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 ********************************************

8-16   CHEVROLET BOLT  Reports out show GM does have some catching up to do. I think that GM does have a minimal electric vehicle showcase only because of so few GM electric vehicles on the road… For the most part, I see more Chevy Volts… For now, the Chevy Bolt EV is really the only GM all-electric vehicle represented in current sales figures, as the second mainstream GM EV offered, the Chevy Bolt EV, just started production at the GM Lake Orion plant in May, making its debut alongside the refreshed 2022 Chevy Bolt EV in February. As GM begins to roll out its long list of forthcoming electric vehicles, it will undoubtedly start its climb towards the top of the list concerning EV market share in North America…                                                                                                                                                                             *********************************************

8-16  The all-electric GMC Hummer EV SUV and pickup are also worth mentioning here, as is the upcoming BrightDrop EV600 light commercial vehicle…                                                                                                                                               *********************************************

8-7  GM  The Latest Info… The GM Assembly plant, which produces both the Chevy Malibu  & Cadillac XT4 crossover, has so far taken the hit & effects of the chip shortage. The two relatively low-volume vehicles and have thus remained offline since February of this year.  Production of the Cadillac XT4 at the plant is set to restart on September 20th, although GM has yet to provide an estimated restart date for the Malibu yet.!   More information from Chevrolet production news… The Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave production is to be restarted by the August 16th time frame … Previous production stoppages were as a result of the global microchip shortage… To reduce the impact of the global microchip shortage, GM has prioritized the production of its most popular products, namely its full-size SUVs and trucks…  As such, the rest of the General Motors lineup has faced production stoppages resulting from the crucial microchip shortage… It is my understanding that there are as many as 1????+  vehicles built and waiting for microchips availability…!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                *********************************************

8-27 2022 Chevy Express, 2022 GMC Savana Production Pushed Back A Month

 

8-7  CHEVROLET HD PICKUP TRUCKS FOR NEW MODEL RELEASE IS NOW 2024  UPDATE: The highly anticipated all-electric Chevy Silverado and yet-unnamed electric GMC pickup trucks will also likely bolster sales significantly when it arrives…

If you can believe this, the Chevy truck that was supposed to be a 2023 model, is now going to be released in the 2024 model year…!  The new model Silverado HD was just caught conducting some real-world testing, providing some first looks at the heavy-duty prototype style, just for now until the new Wow look is reviled… Evidence shows that in this mid-trier trim level has been given reworked front fascias, also headlights with LED lighting signatures… The clusters have two forward-facing lighting elements placed horizontally, above which sits an LED lighting signature strip… The front end also has a revised front fascia and also has a new redesigned grille, with broad horizontal slats that seem to offer a simplified and cleaner design… The rear end will also be redesigned with a new refresh design… The interior was covered, so stay tuned for a new and improved cab… The powertrain updates will be added to the current 6.6L V8 L8T & 6.6L V8 L5P turbo-diesel Duramax… All these updates will be applied to the Chevy Silverado HD’s cousin, the GMC Sierra HD, which will also receive the refresh for the 2024 model year…                                                                         **********************************************

FORD F-150 The Ford F-150 appears to be the best-selling truck in American…So we don’t need to question that, however, I am sure that there are some Ram & Chevrolet owners that may have something to say about that… RAM Chevy owners are very proud and passionate folks… As do some F-150 owners… Let’s face it, it’s a symbol of who they are… Both are tough folks… They work hard, and they play hard … Most of the time, their trucks are involved with that… So from here on, I plan to bring you as much information about the new Ford F-150… So be on the lookout for that…!                                             **************************************                                                                                        New Ford F-150 Lightning … Now, why lightning you ask… Well from everything I have been reading, it goes like  Lightning, and we all know how fast that is… What the amazing thing is, you can buy one for just $40K, and that’s 3.33 times more than my first house… I predict that you will have to get in line, as the factory won’t be able to build the trucks fast enough. The reason is the new design and new look, which I think will really catch on… Also, what this truck has to offer both in convenience, comfort, great performance, both on and off-road… Last but not least, the power provided by the gas and the electric team, from what I have been reading you won’t believe the towing capability of this new forward-looking truck… Wait until you take a look at the wrap-around lighting all across the front, from below each headlight all away across the front… This is what you will be seeing in your rearview mirror… The rear is almost the same, except it will be bright red from just in front of the rear tail light, all across the tailgate to the other tail light, all bright red… I think that nobody will be running into this truck, it will be looking light on a neon billboard…

7-25  The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado satisfies shoppers who want the versatility of a traditional pickup without the compromise of a full-size truck.  For 2022, the only change to Colorado …  While it’s not as aggressive as the setup found on the ZR2, it enhances the off-road abilities of the LT and Z71. The package adds a leveling kit that gives the suspension a 1.0-inch lift and bolts skid plates to the front and middle of its underbelly. It also turns the exterior badges black, brings red tow hooks, eliminates the front air dam, and includes a set of black 17-inch rims derived from the ZR2.  For 2022 all that is new is the dealer-installed Trail Boss package…!  So folks, if you are looking for a newly updated interior and soooo many bells and whistles, then you will be disappointed, until next year’s model in 2023… I too am sorry to have to report this information…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           *******************************************

5/17 CHEVROLET COLORADO, So as I have been reading about this favorite mid-size truck…2022 is going to have minor changes, however, 2023 is going to be Overhaul Redesign and re-engineering…This will be the third generation…  I have to say, that when this truck hit the streets with its kinda forward look, I really liked it… However, when I looked inside at the dash layout, I thought New Look, Sad Look… Now I have nothing against Chevrolet, in fact, if you have been reading my blogs I have been a Chevrolet man for soooo many years… However, to me, it just seems that they could have done better inside sooner than now later… I just love the look of the truck as it drives by… In fact, a neighbor purchased one and went and checked it out… It was even Red and I love that color on that truck… The folks who own it just seem to be in love with it, and I understand how we fall in love with our trucks…!  As I began building one from the Chevy website, it was really getting pricy, especially if you added the 4×4 option. Oh my gosh, all the options for the bed, etc… If you keep clicking ad this & add that, you will be over the $40 without batting your eye… That may mean that you want a loaded mid-size truck, and that’s great… We love our trucks with all the options, and creature comforts, right…?  Last but not least, now it seems that they are now going to fix & update the outdated dash… Or at least that is what I am guessing, as they have announced a redesign & re-engineer of the Chevy Colorado for 2023..!                                                                                                                              ********************************************More News On Midsize Trucks For 2022..!        FORD RANGER 2022… 5-31 New Ford Ranger Info has been released. Here I think they are for sure talking about the actual Ford Ranger… The new Ford Ranger Will Come Out With A New Redesign… Now My Information comes from many sources… Including even some pop-ups on my Google phone, you know what I mean.  We all are there, Right…? 

*************************************5-31 2022 Ford Ranger Redesigned, When the 2022 Ford Ranger came back in 2019, it showed up with a razor-sharp design that incorporated a circular front-end, sweptback front lights, and lots of options for an easy-to-customize seem. Inside, it boasted practically an infant-F-150 design with its several-spoke controls and angular Heating and air conditioning air vents, but its a lot more curved dash catered easier to the tiny-pickup market. This design will stay the same in the 2021 Ranger.   

2022 Ford Ranger Lariat Colors & Redesign!  The2022 Ford Ranger Lariat mid-size pickup will likely get a new front-end redesign, of course.  If it’s nearly anything like whatever we noticed in a leaked out photo and the spy pictures, it’ll be a far more appealing option in the sector that also includes preferred options that compete with the Chevy Colorado & the Toyota Tacoma… You can also get Ford Ranger Lariat  Engine 4/ 2022, by Ford…!            Contrary to the present truck, after that 2022 Ford Ranger Lariat will be all-new from the ground-up. It will reveal a new platform with the very long-anticipated Bronco, which is expected after that year as a 2022 model and is rumored to acquire a new turbocharged V6 engine and a non-obligatory seven-speed handbook transmission. (The recent Ranger employs a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-a number of.) Ford has proved with new data that the Bronco will receive a hybrid version, along with the F-150 obtaining electrified in the not too distant future, we are guessing that the Ranger is going to be, also…                                                                                                                                        ****************************************       8-21  The news & story is out about FORD’s new small, truck named Maverick 2022…The news is moving fast as news travels… Yes, reports are that they have reserved orders for this truck in the thousands & thousands… I am sure that Ford is for sure making plans on having more Micro-chips for all these orders… Now one might be wondering why Ford came up with the name, Maverick…Yes, I think that it is a Bold name, it kinda has the meaning of Rugged, Tough & Forward-free feeling to embolden the young at heart… But don’t think that that is the only buyer for this truck… You may be surprised, but this truck is being looked at real hard by commercial businesses, small businesses, handymen, gardeners, and landscapers…  It Looks Like Ford Has A Winner On Its Hands… More news to came…!

 

8-1 New Update on the New 2022 Ford Maverick…!    After reviewing some information from Ford, they are reporting, it appears that there will be 3 packages, XL, XLT, and of course, for us, bells and whistles kind of guys and girls there is the Lariat Luxury Package… Now folks, like I say that is the package that I would like if I decided to order the New Maverick Pickup…Which is a possibility…Ford choose not to refer to the software SYNC 3 on this truck… Altho it is similar to SYNC… Which is used on most Ford vehicles… However, the great thing is that the infotainment system is equipped with an 8″ touch screen…In the XL & XLT packages, you will not able to use voice recognition capability… Therefore, no change radio channels, media players, or temperature settings by using your voice…  So you know where we are going here right…?  Yes, you will need to order the Lariat Luxury Package, and you will be cruising with all the bells and whistles..!  The two base packages still offer 911 Assist, Bluetooth, Applink & Android Auto, Apple CarPlay…By pressing the button on the steering wheel, you can access Google assistance, Applecarplay assistance… Both they’re here, just pressing the button on the steering wheel and using your voice… This is a Great little truck from a Great company Called Ford, which has a great history building trucks over the many years all the way back to Mr. Henry Ford who founded the company on  June 16th, 1903.  Henry and 12 others invested $28,000 and created Ford Motor Company, there is a little history… This shows us what can happen when someone has a dream, is motivated to make it happen with hard work, and partners with the same vision and goals…

7-21 New Update On the New 2022 Ford Maverick ..!    As I mention before the new Maverick starts at a very lo0w price of $19,995, and it is coming from the Mfg by the Name of FORD, so you can really good about this truck is all their, as they know how to build trucks, from soooo many years ago…Right..? They will offer off-road convenience with the FX4 pkg… The Maverick will offer 250 HP, and 277 pound-feet of torque from a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4 cylinder engine. Now I must add that the new Hyundai Santa Cruz, will offer 25 more horsepower than the Maverick… More Info for you who are considering and new small truck…! Stay tuned, more info to come…!                                                                                                                                                 **************************************** 6-6  2022 Ford Maverick, yes another Pick-Up Truck..!   More information on this little  /gal  ( Again ) If you can believe this… I having a hard time with this one… I just didn’t see this truck coming… But Yel, all of a sudden almost everyone needs a wheelbarrow in their yard  ( Driveway )… The word is out, it’s so great, easy parking and hauls a bag of mulch and some plants, etc… Let’s go buy one now, and they are half-price… That’s my definition… A little humor, right…?  However, we know what’s going on here, it’s let’s get on the  (Little Truck Wagon )… Just maybe we have struck gold… You know when the station wagon came out… Everyone just had to have one, maybe that’s where we are now… WOW, I guess I am showing my age… So here is some official info… The release date is June 8th on TikTok and other social media sites. The last time Ford sold a compact pickup in the USA, was way back in 2011 when the previous-generation Ranger was discontinued.  I know there’s a new Ranger on sale, but that’s bigger and more $$$. So here comes the Maverick, a truck that would be in a world of its own, at least For Now, where small pickups have basically just disappeared. Further south, though, it’s a completely different story, but we’ll get there, too.  We already know how the Maverick will look like because someone leaked a full-frontal photo of a pre-production unit at Ford’s factory. We also know it will be called Maverick because there are leaked images out there of the truck’s tailgate, which clearly has the word Maverick written on it. Another hint is the oval shape above the model’s name. Whatever the case, the Ford Maverick will be a unibody truck -almost like a car with the body & chassis as a single unit, unlike the Ranger and F-150, which are body on frame. Suspension-wise, it’s also like a passenger car and less like a traditional truck, with a rear setup that features coil springs and a twist-beam, as opposed to the more traditional leaf springs. This means that you probably won’t be able to carry a lot of stuff in the bed... Like I said, a bag of mulch, some plants &, etc…  Almost like a wheel borrow… Right.. & almost everyone has one of them, right..?  And about that bed, it will presumably be between 24 and 30 inches shorter than the bed on the Ranger, depending on the configuration. This means the Maverick’s truck bed will measure between 31 and 48.8 inches. By comparison, so you can get an idea of how small the Maverick will be. Maybe, more info to come as it becomes available…                                                                                    

                                       ************************************** 6-6  2022 Ford Maverick,  Yes, another Pick-Up Truck…  More information on this little guy/gal will be mention under Midsize trucks, maybe..?( Again) If you can believe this… I having a hard time with this one… I just didn’t see this truck coming… But Yel, all of a sudden almost everyone needs a wheelbarrow in their yard (Driveway)… The word is out, it’s so great, easy parking and hauls a bag of mulch and some plants and etc… Let’s go buy one now, and they are half-price… I am so sorry for ” Kidding “, Right… That’s my definition… However, we know what’s going on here, it’s not let’s just get on the ( Little Truck Wagon )…  Just maybe we have struck gold… You know when the station wagon came out… Everyone just had to have one, maybe that’s where we are now..!    

                                 **************************************5-31 NEW From Hyundai… This ” little Mid-Size Truck” & it’s called ” Santa Cruz ” Yes as I mentioned in the 2022 news, The min-truck is being built on the Hyundai “Tucson” platform and yes it is going to be quite small, however, I am guessing that Hyundai is shooting at a nitch of truck buyers that likes the idea of having a bed behind them, even tho it is quite small I still think that Hyundai will hit the ” Nail on the Head ” with this vehicle. You see, Hyundai has had a few years to work the bugs out if any in this Tucson platform, and added many features and creature goodies, that I think this truck will become a winner for Hyundai… More detail.  Now about that bed: Hyundai has it stretching out between 48.4 and 52.1 inches, depending on how it’s configured. That’s about a foot shorter than in vehicles such as the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, and Honda Ridgeline. And unlike conceptually similar (though not in scale) vehicles like the old Chevrolet Avalanche, there’s no way to extend the bed into the cab by folding down the second-row seat and bulkhead. The truckish nature of Santa Cruz will only go so far. The SANTA CRUZ worldwide debut launches an exciting new era for adventure-seekers, outdoor enthusiasts & do-it-yourselfers. It combines the flexibility of an open truck bed and the comfort of an SUV so you can easily load it up with gear and get to your next adventure. There’s seating for five, the capability of All Wheel Drive & advanced technology—all in one never-before-seen package. So here are the pkgs:          1-Reserve SE/ 2-Reserve SEL/ 3-Reserve-Prem & Last But Not Least…Here’s The Big One, and everything is included… If I was buying this truck, the Limited would be the one… The biggest reasons are more safety equipment and the air-cooled seats, only because of the extreme Arizona temps and those seats makes it soooo cool… Yes, I think this truck is just going to be just plain, KOOL…! Oh, yes you can reserve your new Santa Cruz on the Hyundai WebSite.. $100 deposit does the job, and then you become a Hyundai Santa Cruz Insider for so much information to come to your inbox…Yea…!       Please follow me for more information on mid-size trucks… You  7-21 Hyundai  Santa Crus Update..!  I have just got the news from Hyundai, that the pricing on the Santa Cruz will be almost $4000 higher than the New Ford Maverick…It will have a starting price of $23,990 for the entry-level, FWD SE Model…  While with the Limited trim and the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine and AWD will require the higher and pricier dollar amount of $39,720…  Now you say, that is quite a price jump above the new competitor right..?  Yes, but from what I have read regarding all the ” Bells & Whistles ” that will be available on the new truck, folks will go for it and not look back… We all love our toys, and this new Hyundai Pickup seems to have it all going for it… I have read somewhere that they have a huge amount of internet confirmed orders…!

Now Ford, Chevy, GMC & Ram… All Mfg America…Toyota, & Nissan Join In From Afar…!  Half-ton pickups hv become just the thing to do when it comes to trucking here in America.! Right, everybody is doing it here, and helping the economy so I had better get join the party-Right..!  The Ram, Chevy Silverado, GMC & Ford F-150, here in the good old USA of mfging seems to hold the lead for now, but competition is fierce for these four..!  They seem to love the challenge if you get the drift…[ Now on a personal note, I must add that I have owned three of these mfgs… My 1st car was Used, but to me, it seems like it was new & it was a 1947 Chevy sedan…  My 2nd car was a 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible… In both cars, I was 100% happy & satisfied with the user and 500% satisfied with the new one… It was a great choice in both cases with a Chevrolet product..! In 1979 my wife & I were planning to build our 1st home in Scottsdale, AZ., and were looking to purchase my 1st new truck for the building job… Yes, I choose a 1979 Ford F-150 & as I remember I paid appx $8000 for it… It did the job, and 150%, time after time, on any job requirement that I ask it to do and some were very difficult, load wise as I recall..!  Now on the Dodge product…After working for two different Dodge dealers in Arizona for many years as their Fleet Dirs, Dodge got in my blood and it happens honestly by me both owning and selling the Trucks and even the Cars/MiniVan/SUV & Trucks..! So I start after the new Dodge Ram truck was introduced in the mid to late 90s, I was so impressed with the new truck, that I purchased a 1995 2500 LB 4×2, and it was such a pleasure to drive, with all the power with the Cummings diesel Oh my goodness..!  I just couldn’t believe how great it felt to be up high and such a great view of the traffic, which I hadn’t experience for quite some time & it just felt good to be back on the road driving my new Dodge truck…I just can’t find the words to describe my feelings about what I had to share with my new and old customers..! Yes, I know you must know the rest of the story about that truck, and where it has come to today… I also, in 2003 I started seeing their new redesigned Ram as they arrived on our lot at Earnhardt’s Dodge, (The No 1 Dodge Dlr In The World For 9 Years in a Row, which with my effort & my fleet dept helped make that happen…! )  So when that new truck came in, I just had to test it out, Oh my Goodness what an improvement I can’t name all of them It was just unbelievable… So there you go again, Ken..! As Pres Ronald Reagan used to say & yes I did… I purchased a new 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 4×4 Crew Cab Short B, SRW … All White, and talk about a proud person of the new truck, it was me and it made me so happy that I had made that purchase of this new resigned truck from Chrysler, and also that I really had a story to tell my customers & my friends about my truck and all the features, including towing ratings, and what it would tow with new improved diesel, there was soooo much to tell, & yes I was excited, right..!  Guess what, that new Dodge Ram set just outside my office window at the Dodge Store!  When a customer came in looking for a Dodge Ram, of course, I now had something to show… I had it loaded with everything from a Brush Guard on the front/ Airbags on the rear axel/ Special running boards/ a 100 gal diesel fuel installed in the bed/ a special monitor system to see the air pressure in both the truck and trailer… So you can see, I was ready to roll…My other Dodges were the Intrepid sedan, It was a new design sedan… I loved it so much, that I had it wrapped with the Dodge Ram logo on the hood, and my Fleet dept advertising along with my name & contact all over the side doors, and the rear with great messages, on saving money by contacting our fleet dept… Last but now least was the new redesign, Durango, with new fancy lights all across the rear… Now that was just one of the great options on that SUV, and it drove great and yes it had seating for 7 complete with rear air and air-cooled seats for drive & passenger… A necessary feature for your driving pleasure here in Arizona..]  So as you can see, I have had personal experience owning, enjoying, testing & putting to real lifetime uses and experiences on all, except GMC… Anytime anyone wants to ask me any questions on any, please don’t hesitate to do it here on my website using the Blog feature…I will always make every effort to answer any question that you may have, but just in case I don’t know the answer, I will try to find it for you… Ok..?         Now back to the Trucks, On the American mfg let’s say like the GMC trucks are making inroads in product development, we all have seen the commercial of people from all walks of life carrying the tailgates from the new GMC trucks… With this new design, folks have the convenience of almost walking into the bed of the truck…!  I can’t imagine just how this one added feature that produced unbelievable truck sales..!  The numbers are staggering, there are sooo many more coming to add to these GMC products as you see them coming up the ladder…They are coming on strong as I see it…

+5/1 So as I reflect over my many years in the automobile business, and concerning TRUCKS and let’s not forget the name FORD, yes it has I think the leader in the USA for many years, or yes sometimes you will hear the word “Ram”, but I think it is in the rearview mirror…But right now Ford comes to my mind as first in trucks & all my opinion…So Let’s go back a little… Back into the mid-’90s…Do you all remember with the New Dodge Ram showed up in the Dodge dealers showrooms all across the country… What excitements abounded… I will never forget…That was when the new Ram hit with the new big front grill, and the new logo also hit at the same time…Everybody just couldn’t get enough of the bold “different” front grill…Also, that wasn’t what all the excitement was all about. I will share…It was about that new cummings diesel, and also the new Hemi 5.7 right about that time…So Ram was on the ” Come Back “, and looking up big time… Not just for the everyday Dodge truck buyer… Also, the truck is now called the ” Ram ” truck…To continue, this truck seemed to just set off fireworks to almost any truck buyer, and yes some turned out to be previous Ford/Chevy and even Toyota… Some to just try it out I guess…However these trucks had an appeal for constructions companies, Ranchers to haul cattle/ horse trailers/ farm supplies, Cowboys from the rodeos around the country, Transportations companies, for all kinds of hauling applications, and even the big one-ton Rams to haul cars if you can believe that, there was no stopping that cummings diesel…The last real user that comes to mind was the RVs, with their camping trailers to pull behind, but the Big user in the RVrs with their big 5th wheels, lengths running from the 20? feet to as high as 57 ft in length… What this all means is that the folks that made these purchases, purchased with confidence that the new Ram from Chrysler and that new & improved 6-cyl engine from Cummings, was what made them make their decision… Now we all know that the Ford trucks have forever been the leader in trucks, but don’t count out the Ram, it has been receiving awards right and left & don’t think for one minute that they are really working on getting there, with innovations both now and in the future… Case in point… All of us remember the Ram’s new 12′ display screen complete with all the toys of convenience… Now everybody in the world, (even our little fur babies) has been so excited… Then when you were talking to someone about the new Ram, they would say ” Have You Seen That Screen? ”  Well guess what?  Someone else one else was listing..!  You’re right, Ford Motor Company… Starting next year, and probably most of the years to come in the future, all Super-Duty and Lariat model… The XL will have the 4.2 and the XLT will have an 8-inch display…So you see, Ram lead with this innovation… These are just shades of things to come when it comes to these two invaders… Also please don’t count Chevrolet Silverado and GMC OUT… I am sure that they both being cousins of the same team, will have surprises for us, like the GMC folding 2-step tail..!  I can share with you that this automobile business has been one of the best decisions that I could have made… It seems that as each year comes on us, it creates another ACT for the play of the car business…!                                                                       ************************************MORE TRUCKS TRUCKS TRUCKS INFO TO COME… Here are some of the mfrs in not particular…!

Now that I have my blog site up and running, I thought that Ken Nichols, myself, would write a blog of just how I found my way to selling cars/trucks. First, about my first car, a 1947 Chevrolet at I bought for $650 money that I earned working during my school vacation in the grocery store and a little help from my Mother. I was the only student in my HS that had a car, yea!  Then moved to Akron, Ohio & took a job working for Firestone T&R. In those days, I felt I was doing good, and I decided to see if I could buy a brand-new car. I loved the inviting styling of the 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible… I couldn’t believe it, but GMAC approved my loan, and there I was in that my new Chevy Convertible, all white, lots of chrome & bright red leatherette interior, Life was good … The price was $3400.00. My how times have changed. Can you believe it?   After getting this new wonderful car, I was hooked. I always thought about selling cars, but just for some reason maybe fear of not being able to do the job, I just don’t know. I just never checked it out…  I took a lot of other jobs, over the years, and as I worked them it was always in the back of my mind why don’t you just go sell cars. So after many years, and building 2/3 houses, an offer was presented to me and I just decided to go for it…!  I first started in the retail end of the business but didn’t like the way they were dealing with customers, and that was it was not very professional… I wanted to do my it way, and that is to be professional, treat the customers the way you would want to be treated.
In 1987, I found a dealer in Scottsdale, AZ, called Linda Brock Auto Plaza. I ask for the Fleet Manager’s job, and it was a done deal. So I worked there for eight years and had a wonderful experience working for Mrs. Brock, she was a great dealership owner. After a year or so there, I seem to become her “right-hand” salesperson…  I ended up dealing with two governors of the state of Arizona.  Many professional ball players & a couple of movie stars which I never thought that I would ever meet, it was great. It has been a wonderful experience. You see the way that I take care of my customers was I was always fair, honest & upfront when quoting the customers the prices on the vehicles… My goal was always to save the customer as much money as I could, & at the same time help eliminate the hassle sometimes associated with the car buying process. Some folks think buying a car is like going to the dentist! That’s Not the way I do it…  I take any and all pain out of the process. Now, after 30 years off & on in the business, I have some customers who have purchases four/five or more vehicles from me over the years. The reason is Yes, at the end of eight years at Linda Brock Auto Plaza in Scottsdale, AZ… It was time to go to the next chapter in my auto sales career…simple, they know how I do business & there are no surprises. Just happy customers…!

Yes, at the end of eight years at the same Linda Brock Auto Plaza in Scottsdale, AZ… It was time to go to the next chapter in my auto sales career…!

The Next Chapter Was To Join The No1 Dodge Dealership In The World Earnhardts Dodge In Gilbert..! BOY WAS THAT A GREAT DECISION!!!

FORD MUSTANG MACH-E

FORD MUSTANG MACH-E…

The automakers have promised 4 years that the flood gates would be open to electric vehicles… The electric vehicle was kinda a thing … You know, the first one on your block to have a Let’s say a new Toyota Prius, or a Chevrolet Volt… I remember when the Volt first came out, and I couldn’t wait to test drive one, it was a hoot…  Well, nowadays, the whole scene has changed, to a mainstream idea in the year 2021 as many new models are hitting the showrooms… Guess what, I think the manufacturers have figured it out..!   Even nowadays the idea of an SUV or pickup truck, running on electricity is still hard to accept for most drivers, but they are slowly getting the idea… The manufactures are thinking that maybe the company call, TESLA  may have had a good thing going, so should we say they came up with a great idea…  Who so far has figured out a way to keep all the money or most of it…  Now let me go back to the beginning, of the page… Who would have ever thought that a Ford Mustang would have been produced as an electric Hot Rod…?  Not me..!

LET ME SHARE W YOU MY INFO ON MY 2019 MADZA CX-5 GRAND TOURING RESERVE AWD

REVIEW OF MY 2019 MAZDA CX5  GRAND TOURING RESERVE AWD

Now, I have had a “Lot” of vehicles, almost 50. This was my first time deciding to purchase a MAZDA… I don’t know why, I just never for some reason wanted Mazda… Now that I have had this SUV, I have should have looked at this product much earlier.  Now, why did I choose this one at this time… I am getting much older (Younger) right?  I was looking for Safety… This SUV has it all … Now when I took the test drive.  Wow, through the front window shield was a display of the miles per hour that I am driving, also the lines on each side of the road were there… So as I drove along the street if I accidentally drifted onto one side or the other line, it started flashing on and off with a beep letting me know to get back in your lane…  Also, when you come to a red stop-lite, it is displayed on the windshield…  Now you’re on the road, you see the speed limit signs in your windshield. You also see your speed… You can set it to let you know when & if you exceed the speed limit… I have never had this type of option on a vehicle before, and I just love it. I want to make sure that the next vehicle I get, has it for sure… Now there are so many options on this SUV I am going to list the titles.  Maybe later some additional options under them but there are so many Engine and MECHANICAL FEATURES/ 2.5 4 Cyl, INCLUDING N I27 HP 310 LB-FT TORQUE  Now this engine has so much get-up when you need it,  I was soooo surprised… I wish that I could have time to list all the options that this vehicle has, it is just unbelievable… It is such a joy to drive and own… If you want more detailed info on this vehicle, just shoot me an email, and will send you the window sticker which lists everything…  The MSRP is $33,895 that also includes power moon roof and side rails, and destination fees… If you are looking for a great SUV, give this one a look at.  You will be glad you did. This one says Luxury Out Loud, with all leather interior, Bose sound system, 19″ Alloy Wheels… It’s a great buy… Oh, I forgot one thing, if you get a speeding ticket in this Mazda with Heads-Up Display It will be your fault, sorry to say…  This SUV has made me a believer in MAZDA … Take the time to check one out and I think you will see what I am talking about…!                                                                            LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I have the contacts to get you the best price on this vehicle…!     The Price That I Quote You, Will Be The Price When You Go For Your Test Drive…  It Will Include All Dealer Discounts, Fleet Disc ?, Rebates, Sales Tax, LIC & Dealer Doc Fees, Total Price Out The Door… All You Have To Do Is The Test Drive…!
