6 Big Reasons Why Cyber Monday Beats Black Friday

Last year, Cyber Monday sales totaled approximately $3.5 billion—about 27% of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend’s rake—pushing Black Friday ($3.3 billion) into second place in the “biggest shopping day of the year” competition. But why are more and more shoppers choosing Cyber Monday’s digital shopping carts over Black Friday’s long lines? Here are seven main reasons why you should follow their lead and shop on Cyber Monday.

6 Big Reasons Why Cyber Monday Beats Black Friday

  1. Take Your Time to Research Cyber Monday Sales

Online reviews and price comparisons have transformed the retail world over the last decade. Consider how you shop for a new car in 2017: you read model reviews, compare features, research safety grades, and search for the best prices online—all before even stepping foot in your local car dealership. Before the digital age, it was necessary to visit your dealer to discover which vehicles were out there, and identifying a quality car took multiple test drives. Continue Reading →

Infiniti QX60 Price

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is one of the very few luxury 3 row SUVs with a starting price under **$45,000. That means you get a lot of SUV for your money!

2018 Volvo XC60 Preview

volvo-xc60

Crossover SUVs are the new wagons, according to popular wisdom, but at Volvo, the heritage is the XC60. The Swedish automaker’s wagon-like SUVs have been met with great success in the market, and together with the various actual wagons Volvo offers, they’ve accounted for more than half of the sales in recent years.

The XC60

None is more popular in Volvo’s lineup than the XC60. The current model accounts for roughly 30 percent of all Volvo sales, and even though it’s almost a decade old, the sales were actually increasing last year. Nevertheless, Volvo has a redesigned model coming to showrooms soon.

The redesigned XC60 made its debut at the 2017 Geneva auto show and will be on sale later this year, as a 2018 model. It adopts the flexible SPA platform of the XC90 as well as the bigger SUV’s handsome styling, albeit with a sharper, more athletic twist. Common elements include the bold grille and Thor’s Hammer daytime running lights motif. Continue Reading →

Everything You Want to Know About the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar F-Pace

At a mere year old, the Jaguar F-Pace is the new kid on a block full of luxury crossovers. It might be new, but it is already becoming one of the most popular options out there. Sitting somewhere in between the small and midsize crossovers, the F-Pace provides the perfect option for people who want something that is nimble, spacious, and elegant. Take a look at what you will get if you drive one of these vehicles.

The Trims

The 2018 Jaguar F-Pace comes in six trims, and each one seats up to five people. The Base trim might be at the bottom of the ladder, but you’ll forget that when you access features like the panoramic sunroof. It also has 40/20/40-split folding rear seats. This opens up the vehicle and lets you take more on the road with you.

The Premium trim has everything you’ll get with the Base model plus a little extra, such as bigger wheels and a rearview camera. Consider adding the Vision Package to this vehicle. This package is all about safety. It will be like you have an extra set of eyes on the road.

The Prestige trim is another step up. This is perfect or those who want a little extra dash of luxury. Picture sliding in and putting your phone down on the leather upholstery and interacting with the vehicle through voice control. That’s real luxury there.

That takes you to the R-Sport. Bigger wheels, special sport bumpers, and uniquely-designed seats that include adjustable thigh support all set this vehicle apart. You can even increase the horsepower on this one by getting the S trim.

Then, you have the granddaddy of all of the trims, the Portfolio. This has all of the features you’ll get with the Prestige along with premium leather upholstery and bigger wheels. It also has extra comfort, convenience, and luxury features. If you want to have it all, this is the one for you.

The Engines

When you look through the trims, you’ll notice some engine options. First, understand that Jaguar added a new engine into the mix for the 2018 model year. This new turbocharged inline-four engine is available on the F-Pace’s base model. This engine produces an impressive 247 horsepower.

However, it’s the returning supercharged V6 engine that gets most of the love. This powerful engine comes in two forms. One produces 340 horsepower, and the other produces a whopping 380 horsepower.

The diesel engine is also worth considering. This is the go-to choice for those who want to get the most fuel efficiency. Coming in at 180 horsepower, it might not produce as much power, but it gets a combined 29 mpg.

The Driving Aids

It’s also worth noting that Jaguar added a couple of additional driving aids to the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace, making it worth getting an upgrade if you have the 2017 model. The 2018 version comes with Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection. These aids will help you park and avoid collisions.

Most vehicles don’t go through such a big upgrade after one year, but the F-Pace isn’t like most vehicles. See one in person at Berglund Group Roanoke-Jaguar in Roanoke, Virginia. Take it out for a spin around Roanoke and see how it performs under pressure.

Volvo SUVs You Should Drive

Volvo XC90

If you are in the market for a new SUV, you have two great options. Consider going with the Volvo XC60 or the Volvo XC90. One is a compact SUV, while the other is a midsize option. Check out the features to see which one of the Volvo SUVs is the right choice for you. Then, get ready to drive off in luxury.

Volvo XC60 – Proof that Great Things Come in Compact Packages

Compact comfort is the name of the game for the Volvo XC60. The seats are incredibly comfortable regardless of how far you travel, and the integrated booster seats make it much easier for families to take road trips. If you get these optional seats, you can pop them up when you need them. Since they are dual-stage booster seats, they accommodate kids of different sizes.

The XC60’s engine also stands out. It might be a 4-cylinder, but it has a quiet power that you will love when you’re driving. This 4-cylinder has enough get-up-and-go to produce 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque for the base T5 model. It also has a momentary overboost feature that adds some extra torque for short periods of time. If you want even more power, you can go with the T5 or R-design models. These have even more horsepower so you can be the master of the roads when you drive.

These engines might be powerful, but they are still efficient. The T5 gets 26 mpg combined, while the T6 gets 22 mpg. With efficiency like that, you can tackle that big road trip you’ve been putting off.

Volvo XC90 – Big and Bold

The Volvo XC90 is a midsize three-row luxury SUV. It might be part of a crowded class, but it stands out due to its spacious seating and tons of standard safety features. The T5 model has a turbocharged engine that gets 250 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet of torque and clocks in with an estimated 24 mpg.

Those specs look great, but it’s the XC90 Plug-In Hybrid that gets most of the press. It uses an engine and an electric motor. You can switch modes with this vehicle. If you go with the hybrid mode, you will get 54 MPGe on the highway, and 53 MPGe in the city. You can also take short commutes using only electricity.

All the models really shine when it comes to safety features. Features like the frontal collisions warning system and Run-Off Road Protection keep you safe on the road. In fact, Run-Off Road Protection is one of the most innovative safety features of late. It engages various safety features if you run off the road.

Both of these Volvo SUVs are great pieces of machinery and worth seeing in person. Visit Berglund Group Roanoke-Volvo in Roanoke, Virginia, and check these SUVs out today.
