Upcoming Events in Illinois Valley

After recently experiencing the wrath of devastating tornadoes, it’s time to look forward to happier days and times. There are some upcoming events in Illinois Valley that will help out surrounding families and also a time that the whole family can enjoy.

The National Letter Carriers: Stamp Out Hunger food drive will be happening this weekend. With the motto, “fill a bag, feed families,” it’s all about giving back to those around us who struggle with hunger. The event will benefit the Illinois Valley Food Pantry. If you want to participate, simply leave any non-perishable food items that you want to donate on your porch or near your mailbox tomorrow. If you have a post office box, you can drop off donations at the General Mail Facility in LaSalle.

The Illinois Valley Food Pantry serves 725 families each month and this food drive provides them with enough food to support each family throughout the summer. With kids on summer vacation, they don’t receive breakfast and lunch from school anymore, so the food drive is vital to make sure there’s enough to feed everyone. Items that are always needed include cereal, mac & cheese, canned fruits and veggies, soup, peanut butter, baby food and boxed potatoes.

Later this month will be the Easter Seals of LaSalle & Bureau Counties 35th Annual Celebration Telethon. It will take place on May 17th from noon to 4 p.m. at Skydive Chicago. It will be a fun afternoon filled with music, food, face painting, a magician, and games. It will also be a celebration for donors and volunteers who give their time, money and skills to support the children in LaSalle & Bureau Counties. If you want to join in and help support the children Easter Seals support, there will be an event called “Jump for Easter Seals” in which you volunteer to skydive.

The two events above are a great time to do something fun with your family, while giving back to the local community! If you want more upcoming events in Illinois Valley, click here.

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Debut Highlights New, Sculpted Design

It looks like Mitsubishi is talking the 2016 Outlander model out of this world. The Japanese carmaker recently unveiled the newest model of its popular crossover and it’s a beauty. With an all-new style and an unprecedented number of engineering and design improvements, the 2016 Outlander is sure to continue leading its segment in value, style, and safety.

“The 2016 Outlander has an eye-catching new design aesthetic inside and out, and with its long list of engineering upgrades, the new Outlander literally looks, drives, and feels like an entirely new vehicle, making it an even more compelling value than before,” said Don Swearingen, Mitsubishi Motors North America’s Executive Vice President. “Mitsubishi’s outstanding sales momentum is carrying into the new-year and with the arrival of the 2016 Outlander crossover we are well positioned to sustain our growth.”

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander debut provided the public with a look at the brand’s new front design concept, called the “Dynamic Shield.” This new feature is a more aggressive design approach than the previous Outlander’s styling, making the crossover an intimidating presence out on the road. Along with its new design, the Outlander also features a variety of design and engineering improvements, including a noise-isolating windshield and rear door glass, improved chassis, and new front end suspension.

2016 i-MiEV Price and Equipment Make For One Value-Packed EV

Mitsubishi is moving ahead to bring the 2016 i-MiEV all-electric car to market later this month. The i-MiEV is a sub-compact, four-door electric car that delivers technology, safety, and convenience at the most affordable price of any green car.

Smooth and efficient acceleration is provided by the electric motor producing 49kW (66hp) mated to a continuously variable transmission. The full compliment of lithium-ion batteries rest underneath the seating and floor areas, lowering the center of gravity and giving the i-MiEV 16wWh of power worth a range of 62 miles per charge. The i-MiEV will come with a DC charging port that can accept high amperage power to rapidly reach 80% capacity in only 30 minutes.

The i-MiEV comes replete with safety features such as an advanced airbag system, Brake Assist that helps mitigate accidents, Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBF) to balance the braking effort between all four wheels, and stability and traction control. There is even a feature that alerts pedestrians to the oncoming i-MiEV’s presence.

Add in heated front seats, heated mirrors, a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and the 2016 i-MiEV price of only $15,495 after federal tax credit, and you have the most affordable EV of 2016. So come in to Coronet of Peru and order yours today!
