Wishing everyone a safe and jubilant 4th of July weekend. If you don't have plans for the weekend yet, there's still time to make them. If you're just not the plannin' type ... well, we hear ya. It's casual.
All four of the Runde Auto Group locations will be closed on Monday the 5th of July in honor of the National Holiday. We'll reopen again for business on Tuesday the 6th, but remember that you can access our inventory 24/7 at www.RundeAutoGroup.com
If you keep up to date with what's going on in the vehicle industry you probably know that the GM CEO, Frederick 'Fritz' Henderson has resigned within the last couple of weeks. Ed Whitacre, who was the chairman of the board at GM, is taking the role as interim CEO.
The search for a new CEO began almost immediately after Henderson resigned. Spencer Stuart, from Headhunting Firm, was put in charge of finding the new GM CEO. Without a doubt , the search can't be easy for Stuart. The qualifications required to be the CEO of one of the most recognized companies in the world undoubtedly amounts to no small checklist. GM wants someone who is "globally minded" having "extensive global, manufacturing and turnaround" experience.
To help him out, people have been making some pretty awesome suggestions... Here's some of the best (top 10) suggestions for the new GM CEO that people have suggested:
1. Sarah Palin.
2. The Stig (The masked racing driver on the BBC show Top Gear).
3. The Former ShamWOW Guy.
5. Pamela Anderson
(Baywatch was one of the most globally watched shows ever. A globally marketed image is right up her alley -- David Hasselhoff just missed making our list. *Note -- it is very challenging finding an image of Pamela where she is wearing clothes over 60% of her body).
6. Steve Ballmer (CEO of Microsoft).
7. Mark Zuckerberg (Co-Founder of Facebook).
9. "Neo" from the Matrix trilogy.
10. The Terminator.
Some great suggestions floating out there... if only we could see GM led by the mother of crafts and home decor... we would see vehicles in every color of the pantone book and vehicle options that include useful things like toaster ovens, rear hanging Venetial blinds, and a sewing machine with an optional 2nd sewing pedal next to the brake pedal. If you can think of better candidates let's hear 'em!
Motor Trend recently announced the 2010 Truck of the year. And, maybe not so surprisingly, the Dodge Ram took home the title for the king of trucks. Up against some pretty fierce competition, like the popular F-150 and Silverado, the Ram out-contended the best from every make out there. And judging from what it can do in the video below, it seems pretty well deserved.
Based on the following criteria, taken from Motor Trend's website (http://www.motortrend.com), the ram out-performs the competition in most categories.
- DESIGN ADVANCEMENT Quality execution of exterior and interior styling; innovation in vehicle packaging; good selection and use of materials.
- ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE Integrity of total vehicle concept and execution, clever solutions to packaging, manufacturing, and dynamics issues; use of cost-effective technologies that benefit the consumer.
- INTENDED FUNCTION How well the vehicle does the job its designers and product planners intended.
- EFFICIENCY Low fuel consumption and carbon footprint, relative to the vehicle's competitors.
- SAFETY Primary safety -- the vehicle's ability to help the driver avoid a crash -- as well as secondary safety measures that protect occupants from harm during a crash.
- VALUE Price and equipment levels measured against those of vehicles in the same market segment.
