Refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro displayed at Frankfurt

Did you catch up with the 65th Frankfurt Motor show? If so, you may have noticed that Chevrolet brought a very exciting vehicle to the auto show: the revised 2014 Chevrolet Camaro, featuring lowered body lines and the new MyLink infotainment system.

Dr. Thomas Sedran, President and Managing Director of Chevrolet Europe, explains the how the new Camaro is sure to be a hit, stating, “Camaro has always been associated with iconic design, high performance and driving fun, and we are particularly proud of the new coupe and convertible models. They incorporate new high-tech features that add extra convenience and give customers even more value for their money.”1

Focusing on the exterior of the vehicle, the front end of the updated vehicle features a narrower grille up top and a wider more menacing grille on the bottom.  Keeping with functionality and design in mind, there is also a functioning hood vent that helps dissipate heat and lowers aerodynamic lift. Towards the rear of the vehicle, many will notice a new designed spoiler that happens to have the antenna built in.

Of course the revisions wouldn’t mean much if the Camaro wasn’t powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that works with the offered six speed automatic or manual transmissions.

Updates were also made in the interior with the new model having an available option of leather Recaro Sport seats as well as remote engine start.  All trim levels will also have the rearview camera as a standard feature.

For more information about the new model, which will be hitting showrooms like the one here at Rogers Auto Group, located in Chicago, IL, by the end of the year, be sure to stay tuned here with our Rogers Auto Group  blog.

Hyundai Starts Thank-You Initiative Drivers for Pediatric Cancer Donations

Hyundai is committed to philanthropy with easily its largest dedication going towards helping to find a cure for pediatric cancer through its nonprofit organization, Hyundai Hope on Wheels.

And, this year as a part of its initiative and also in honor of September, National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Hyundai Motor America and its network of dealers are making a grand donation of $10.25 million to pediatric cancer research here in the U.S.

This donation is certainly not the first Hyundai has made to the cause in fact, to date, since Hyundai Hope on Wheels was first established in 1998, it has donated over $72.0 million for U.S. pediatric cancer research.

“With childhood cancer remaining the leading cause of death from disease for children in the U.S., there is an urgent need for more research that can lead to better cures for our children,” says Peter C. Adamson, Chairman of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). “Hyundai and its dealers are bridging the widening gap in childhood cancer research funding and have quickly become one of the largest and more innovative grant providers in the field. We are grateful for their support and efforts to bring our cause to the forefront of the national dialogue.”1.

In an effort to thank all of its customers who purchases of new Hyundai models helped with the large donation(s), Hyundai is launching a new social media campaign called “Every Handprint Tells a Story” with small handprints featuring the Hope on Wheels logo in representation of the hopes, dreams and journeys of the poor children diagnosed with cancer, each day.

If you’d like to learn more about the Hyundai brand, we at Rogers Auto Group invite you to visit us at our convenient location of 2720 S Michigan Ave in Chicago, IL, anytime.
