Celebrate Great Outdoors Month in Ottawa, IL

We have decorated our showroom for Great Outdoors Month.

This is what the Great Outdoors looks like indoors.

If a few of us are missing this June at Sierra Motors Chrysler, we’ll tell you why: it’s Great Outdoors Month! We get the longest days of the year in June and just love to spend them outside in the sun. To celebrate, we have even decorated the dealership with an outdoors theme, including stuffed bears and camping material, and will be auctioning them off to those of you who test drive a new vehicle at our store.

One of our favorite places to go during Great Outdoors Month in Ottawa, IL, is Buffalo Rock State Park. The Rock is located on a bluff that was once an island in the Illinois River and now stands proudly on the north bank, offering a beautiful, sweeping view of the water.

It’s a great area to go camping or picnicking. There are several existing campsites with fire rings accessible only by walk-in or bike-in and picnic areas shaded by mature oaks, hickory, and walnut trees, providing the perfect setting for a family outing or a romantic getaway.

That’s just one of the numerous outdoor areas where you can enjoy nature. How will you celebrate Great Outdoors Month?

Jeep is First American Automaker to Return to the Tokyo Motor Show

Jeep will be the first American automaker to return to the Tokyo Motor Show after an eight year absence. Though foreign-brand car sales in Japan have declined about six percent in the first four months of this year, Jeep sales were up 21 percent over the same period.

That would explain why Jeep is returning to the Tokyo Motor Show even when fellow Detroit automakers such as Ford, General Motors, and even Chrysler are not. The Big Three had originally walked away from the show after the 2007 event because of the global economic crisis and haven’t come back since.

But now Jeep is the best-selling American brand in Japan. It will be part of an eight-vehicle, four-brand showcase overseen by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Japan. Joining it will be cars from Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Abarth, as well as 13 other foreign makes.

Sierra Motors Chrysler is happy to once more be looking forward to the Tokyo Motor Show!
