Will Your Car Soon Become Your Personal Assistant? - 02/21/2017

PEKIN, Ill., – We already know that today's new vehicles are equipped with technologically advanced features like hands-free phone calls and voice-controlled GPS. These features make our lives more convenient and keep us safe while distracted driving is on the rise. With technology always improving around us we find ourselves asking will your car soon become your personal assistant? 

In collaboration with RWTH Aachen University, Ford is researching the use of microphones to improve speech processing in vehicles. This type of research has the potential to allow your vehicle to learn all about your preferences. In-car cameras could also be used to read facial expressions and create the "empathetic car," one that knows how you're feeling when you sit down.

As early as this summer, Ford vehicles will begin allowing drivers to access Amazon's virtual assistant, Alexa through Ford SYNC 3. Alexa understands 23 different languages and is expected to bring drivers more convenient ways to navigate while operating their vehicle.


But with all of these technology advancements at our fingertips, and the idea that our cars may soon become more like personal assistants, we may find ourselves wondering if we've taken things a bit too far. Do cars really need to do more than take us from point a to point b? Do we need to be able to ask our vehicle's a question? What do you think of all of these proposed new features?

You can read more about Ford's latest research project with RWTH Aachen University and see what features and improvements will soon become available in the Ford MediaCenter.

Located at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554, Velde Ford of Pekin is committed to providing customers outstanding service. We want you to enjoy your car buying experience.

Introducing New Ford Wind Tunnel Complex - 02/16/2017

PEKIN, Ill., – In an attempt to improve increased fuel efficiency in their vehicles and meet the demands of many consumers, Ford is happy to introduce their new wind tunnel complex to test new production and racing vehicles. The new facility will take up 13 acres of land next to Ford's current Driveability Test Facility in Allen Park, Michigan. Construction of the facility, which will will provide state-of-the-art testing simulations, will begin in 2017.

A five-belt conveyor system will be able to recreate drag and road conditions without the need to leave the facility! In order to improve fuel efficiency, each vehicle wheel will receive its own conveyor belt, simulating up to 155 mph airflow. The belts will allow the wheels to move at up to 200 mph!



 In addition to fuel efficiency, the wind tunnel complex will also be able to test for aerodynamic shielding, high-speed performance, and can reach temperatures between -40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. These conditions will allow for extreme testing to take place without having to travel to extreme climates.

"This new wind tunnel facility will not only allow us to test our performance and racing vehicle line-up but will also enable us to share innovations across all our global Ford products,” Ford Performance global director, Dave Pericak said of the new facility.

Easy, Fun, At-Home Workouts - 01/26/2017

PEKIN, Ill., – Do the winter blues have you feeling down? Did you resolve to exercise more in 2017? Whatever the reason for wanting to exercise, we know it can be tough to make time to go to the gym. It's easy to feel lazy and unmotivated during the cold months, especially if you're someone who likes to run or walk outside. We found some easy, fun, at-home workouts and shared them on our Pinterest page in hopes that they'll help get you up off of the couch for a few minutes! 

Cardio

Easy, Fun, At-Home Workouts

Cardio can be a killer, but you can do this workout at your own pace, right in your living room. The best part, it's only ten minutes long so if you don't have much time you can still get in a quick sweat sesh! 

Easy, Fun, At-Home Workouts

Don't let the name fool you. There's nothing lazy about this arm workout, and it's not just for girls! You'll need some hand weights and a yoga mat to complete these exercises at home. Our favorite part about at home workouts is the ability to customize the time you spend on each exercise and each muscle group.

Easy, Fun, At-Home Workouts

Don't skip leg day! You don't necessarily need the weights for these exercises to be effective. Go at your own pace and do what feels good for you! Repeat as many times as you need to get a good workout in! 

Easy, Fun, At-Home Workouts

All of these exercises are great for toning your back muscles. Set a goal of how many reps you want to do in a certain time limit and make your workout into a fun game. If you can't seem to ditch the kids, have them join you and make it a contest (safely, of course)! Have them guess how many swimmies they can do in a minute and then try to match their score. You might be surprised!

Easy, Fun, At-Home Workouts


This ab workout is quick and effective and can be altered to make it more difficult or less difficult depending on what you're looking for! 

Mix and match any of these workouts to get your exercise in for the day! Try to hit all of the major muscle groups every week and you're sure to feel more energetic! Because these easy, fun, at-home workouts are fairly short, try not to make excuses not to do them! If you have 10 minutes to watch tv, you have 10 minutes to exercise! Or do both at the same time! That's the beauty of working out at home! While you're busy keeping yourself in good shape, don't forget to take care of your car! You can use our coupons page to save on your next service appointment at Velde Ford Pekin!

Ways to Live Your Best Life in 2017 - 01/17/2017

PEKIN, Ill., – We're a little more than two weeks into the New Year. Enough time has passed to make (and potentially break) resolutions, and sometimes that means feeling down on yourself. But we're here to tell you that you can make 2017 great, without all of the "New Year, new me" type of talk. Here are some ways to live your best life in 2017.

Ways to Live Your Best Life in 2017

1. Don't take your health for granted

If you're lucky enough to have relatively good health, you're not living with a chronic illness or pain, then don't it for granted! This can mean different things for different people. Whether it's going for a daily walk, traveling to a place you've never been, or exercising more often, use this year to take advantage of your physical health.


2. Eat good food

Life is way too short to be spent eating bad food! This doesn't mean you have to take your diet to the extreme. Allow some space for indulgence, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, prepare your own meals, and try to spend less time in the drive through.


3. Keep your mind active

Pick up that book you've been meaning to read or set aside some time to write down your thoughts each day. Taking care of your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Do a crossword puzzle or read the newspaper. Your brain will thank you.


4. Put the phone down

How much time do you spend staring at a screen? If you work on a computer all day, odds are you're spending at least 8 hours looking at an electronic device. Add in the time spent scrolling social media on your cell phone and most of your waking hours are gone. Set aside some time each day to disconnect from your electronics.


5. Spend time with yourself

It's important to have time to reflect on your inner thoughts. This can be tough with a busy work schedule or family life, but even a few minutes a day spent completely alone is enough to make you feel reenergized and ready to take on the world. Set aside time to do things you love and don't feel bad about it!


6. Spend time with people who are important to you

This can mean different things for different people, but if you can't remember the last time you saw your best friend or your parents, maybe it's time to focus on the people in your life rather than your work or household duties.

If all of these things sound a little overwhelming when combined, that's okay! Take it one step at a time and start by focusing on little things. Baby steps will lead the way to living your best life in 2017. Does your car need a little TLC in 2017 as well? Be sure to take a look at our Winter Car Care pages to help you keep up with your routine vehicle maintenance!

Located at 2200 North 8th Street, Pekin, IL 61554, Velde Ford of Pekin is committed to providing customers outstanding service. We want you to enjoy your car buying experience. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to stop by the dealership or visit our website at www.VeldeFordPekin.com. You can also reach us at (888) 221-2804. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Big News from Ford Motor Company - 01/09/2017

PEKIN, Ill., – In the midst of the North American International Auto Show comes multiple exciting news announcements from Ford Motor Company. We learned of the revival of two popular Ford vehicles and were introduced to Ford's "City of Tomorrow." It also appears that the Ford-owned ride sharing app, Chariot, will continue to grow during 2017. We're happy to report on the big news for Ford Motor company, and are excited to see what the next few years have in store!

The Ford Bronco fell off the map in the late nineties and has been rumored for a revamp in the past few years. With little details to share, we can officially confirm, the Ford Bronco will be back in 2020! It was introduced at the auto show as "a no-compromise midsize 4x4 utility for the thrill-seekers who want freedom and off-road functionality, with the space and versatility of an SUV."

Big News from Ford Motor Company

Another sorely missed Ford vehicle will make its return in 2019, the Ford Ranger will be back on the market! This midsize truck promises affordability, functionality, and maneuverability for drivers.

Ride sharing applications have been on the rise in cities across the world. Ford announced that their Chariot app will continue to expand this year. It is already available in San Francisco and Austin, Texas, and is expected to reach 8 more cities in 2017.

Probably the biggest and most exciting news from Ford this week has been the introduction of Ford's "City of Tomorrow." In an attempt to address the growing concerns of mobility across the globe, Ford City Solutions team is working to combat challenges seen in urban settings. This includes solutions for things like gridlock and air pollution, utilizing green space and fully autonomous vehicles. This very futuristic seeming concept plan is not so far off, as Ford expects to introduce autonomous vehicles by 2021.


All of these exciting news announcements from Ford Motor Company come during the North American International Auto Show, happening in Detroit, MI now through January 22nd. You can view more details on Ford's Youtube page, and stay up to date on more exciting things to come at www.NAIAS.com!

Combat the Cold with the 2017 Ford Escape - 12/21/2016

PEKIN, Ill., – The frigid temperatures of winter can sometimes feel debilitating. You know you would rather stay cozy and warm inside than go get into a cold car to head to work. But what if the car wasn't cold and the only time your skin had to touch the freezing air was on the short walk from your door to your vehicle? Thanks to the Ford Extreme Climate Team, these fantasies could be your reality. Combat the cold this winter with the 2017 Ford Escape!



When the polar vortex gripped much of North America in the winter of 2013-2014, it became apparent that new technologies would need to be developed if Ford was going to keep their customers happy and warm. The Ford Extreme Climate Team, which conducts research on driving habits of inhabitants of many extreme climate regions, hosted a customer clinic in northern Canada to listen to what consumers wanted. The outcome was overwhelmingly "Heat everything" and so the team got to work to bring warmth to drivers everywhere.

The result of their research is apparent in the cold weather technology available on the 2017 Ford Escape. Available features include:

  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated side mirrors
  • All-weather floor mats
  • Windshield wiper de-icer (works in under 10 minutes!)

In addition to these luxurious features, the 2017 Ford Escape is also compatible with the FordPass app, which allows drivers to remotely start their vehicle using ForD SYNC Connect technology. The app gives drivers the capability to not only start their engine, but control the features mentioned above.

With the majority of winter still ahead of us, you may want to consider how you could combat the cold with a 2017 Ford Escape from Velde Ford Pekin. Check out our inventory to find the model that's right for you, or take a look at our Ford Crossover Comparison page to help you choose a vehicle. Feel free to stop by the dealership if you have any questions or need help picking out a new vehicle this winter!
