Whether it relates to marriages or how long a business has been open for, 50th anniversaries are always something to celebrate. That is exactly what Ford is doing with the 2015 Ford Mustang. In honor of its half-century birthday the iconic sports car is getting a redesign that is sure to get buyers flocking to Lindsay Ford of Wheaton for a test drive!

After seeing this video, we hope it’s a sign of how well the 2015 Mustang will perform once it’s available the North American market.

The slot car mustang may be incredibly mini compared to its full-size sibling, but thanks to 3D printing technology it has the same dimensions, just scaled down a lot. That makes us confident that it will fly by the competition!

For more information on when the 2015 Ford Mustang will be arriving at our Wheaton, MD dealership, contact us. In the meantime, stop in and test drive any of our 2014 Ford Mustang models.

Reducing clutter and adding function, Cadillac will add wireless charging of smartphones in the 2015 model ATS sport sedan and coupe launching this fall. Compatible with Powermat and other in-phone wireless charging technologies, the feature eliminates the need for cords on board.

“A recent survey from IHS revealed that 70 percent of consumers charge their mobile phone at least once per day, with 30 percent charging more than once,” said Ryan Sanderson, associate director, Power Supply & Storage Components at IHS Technology.

“This is driving demand for charging access in multiple locations throughout the day, something wireless charging can address in a more convenient way than the consumer having to carry one or more wired chargers around with them on a daily basis.”

Following its introduction into the 2015 ATS, wireless charging technology will be added to the CTS sport sedan this fall and to the Escalade SUV at the end of 2014.

”With 4G LTE capability and now wireless charging, Cadillac is embedding conveniences that have quickly become essential customer needs,” said Ken Kornas, ATS global product manager.

Powermat enables the phone to simply sit on a rubberized pad. The battery is recharged by means of an electromagnetic field. An increasing number of smartphones have wireless charging either embedded or as an option. The wireless charger GM and Powermat created accommodates the majority of these enabled devices.

“Our lifestyles have evolved in a more mobile way than ever before and with that comes an even greater need for access to power in those places where we spend the majority of our time,” said Powermat CEO Ran Poliakine. “Our integration into the Cadillac ATS is only the first step in the evolution of portable power in places that include your car, your coffee house and even your favorite sporting arena.”

The wireless charging feature will be located inside the storage bin behind the fully motorized center instrument panel faceplate of the ATS. This location creates a convenient option for drivers so they can keep their hands on the wheel. Using Bluetooth, a driver can pair his or her phone to the vehicle and enjoy many of the connectivity elements of the mobile device while it is both out of the way and charging.

Cadillac CUE is the centerpiece of the ATS Coupe’s in-vehicle technologies. For 2015, CUE includes new enhanced content such as a Text-to-Voice feature for smartphone users with Bluetooth profile (M.A.P.), which reads incoming texts through the car’s speakers. Using the feature requires a compatible smartphone with Bluetooth profile and applicable text messaging feature.

Powermat is the pioneer and leader of the wireless power industry. Enjoyed by millions of consumers worldwide, Powermat’s technology was formally adopted by the PMA, and is the platform of choice for such global leaders as Duracell, General Motors, AT&T and Starbucks.

Anyone who ever doubted that the Ford F-150 was going to last as America’s number one pickup truck, is going to feel really foolish after they see this video we are bringing to you today. Specs for the new 2015 F-150 have finally arrived and it seems as though our favorite automaker is once again setting the pace of development in the consumer truck category.

What it really comes down to is the 700 lb. weight reduction that the 2015 F-150 model has received thanks to an increased use of lightweight aluminum. That, and of course the addition of a 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine that can deliver performance above and beyond the capability of many V8s.

See what happens when it is stacked against the competition:

The 2015 F-150 is set to arrive here at Lindsay Ford later this Fall, be sure to get in and learn all the details ahead of time by visiting our showroom and speaking with our staff.

Gripped Racing team member and filmmaker, Jason Berry, developed a new invention, RaceDots, that replace pins to grippedracing_racedots_vwattach race numbers to clothing. The RaceDots are magnets that make it easy to attach race numbers securely to clothing without poking holes in your jersey or yourself.

You can order your RaceDots online at RaceDots.com.

Here is a video on how to use RaceDots:

Cadillac announced production of a limited, special-edition 2015 CTS-V Coupe, marking the last chapter of the current model before the next generation of the V-Series debuts next year.

The 2015 CTS-V Coupe will consist of 500 limited-edition cars available during the second half of 2014.

“The V-Series continues to elevate Cadillac, providing an exclusive family of high-performance luxury models that attract a new audience of elite and passionate buyers,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer, Global Cadillac.

The special edition CTS-V Coupe shares the high-performance technology of its predecessors built from 2010–2014 – including Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo brakes and 556-horsepower (415kW) supercharged V-8 engine.

The CTS-V Coupe is the most dramatic model in the V-Series range of high-performance luxury models, blending a personal 2+2 layout with a drivetrain vetted on Germany’s famed Nürburgring track.

The 2015 special edition version features an exclusive Ebony interior with red contrast stitching, Recaro® performance seats, metal pedals, Midnight Sapele wood trim, microfiber suede-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dark-finish V grille, satin graphite wheels and red brake calipers.

The 500 special-edition CTS-V Coupes will be produced this summer. Pricing begins at $72,195, including a $995 destination charge and $1,300 gas guzzler tax, and are available for immediate order. Exterior color options include Crystal White, Black Diamond ($995) and Phantom Gray. Buyers can opt for either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. A sunroof also is available ($700).

The next-generation V-Series models are in development and will premiere next year.

“The special edition is a stepping stone to the next-generation V-Series, which will move to the next level with more dynamic design and technical sophistication,” Ellinghaus said.
