Fiat’s Fight for Chrysler

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Fiat Chrysler AutomobilesIt’s an odd year for the newly formed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA.) It posted massive losses in Q1 of the year, to the tune of almost $700m. But despite that, the company is actually doing fairly well. The 2015 Chrysler 200 in Albert Lea, MN received over 10,000 orders in its first day for sales next year. It gained massive amounts of market share, now owning about 12.7% of the American market. Add onto that the excitement over what the company’s new five year plan announcement, and despite the posted losses, FCA seems to being doing pretty well for itself, especially as all the losses were actually paying off debts and finalizing a deal with the United Auto Workers.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Albert Lea MN

When picking a name for a vehicle, often times makers will go for obscure names based off foreign language or give a car a mission or simply just give it a name that implies a concept. Sometimes they’ll just throw together letters and numbers. Often times its rather hit or miss, either summing the vehicle up pretty well or just sounding weird. The Dodge Challenger sounds pretty good. But with the release of the new version of the Challenger’s SRT trim, Dodge hits it out of the park in putting a name with a vehicle. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in Albert Lea, MN sounds just as feral as the name implies, and it is a thing of beauty. (more…)

2015 LINCOLN Navigator Albert Lea, MN

2015 LINCOLN NavigatorThe last time LINCOLN did anything that could be called a change for its Navigator series, Steve Jobs just announced the iPhone, the last Harry Potter book had come out, and Tobey Mcguire had his last outing in red and blue spandex in Spider-man 3. That year, 2007, was the last time that the Navigator got a redesign and face-lift. But LINCOLN is rolling out a brand new look for next year. And the 2015 LINCOLN Navigator in Albert Lea, MN benefits greatly from it.

2014 Volkswagen Passat Albert Lea, MN2013-Volkswagen-Passat-Sedan-012

No one would look at the Passat and describe it as the height of luxury. But that’s not what it was designed for.

And for it’s price and fuel-efficiency, this mid-sized sedan actually comes closer to a steal. (more…)

Nissan is Developing a Self Cleaning Car

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

You’ve heard of self driving cars, but what about a self cleaning car? How often have you had get up on an nice summer weekend morning, look out the window and think, “It’s not going to rain today, I better wash the car.” You inevitably spent the rest of your morning cleaning and detailing your car, struggling with hoses, rags, and wax, tripping over yourself just so your car gets that much cleaner.

These two scenarios might be a thing of the past if Nissan’s new technology takes off. (more…)
