The latest Odyssey gets a styling update. The redesigned front grille now looks more like grilles on Ridgeline trucks and Pilot SUVs.

The refreshed Honda minivan offers a refined and luxurious cabin that’s one of the best in its class. Interior design is sleek and the cabin is made of high-quality material.

This vehicle also offers a lot of space to store stuff, with several pockets, cubbies, and slots for everything that you need to bring along with a large family.

The Odyssey’s infotainment system is again worth mentioning. Some of these infotainment functions require a bit of learning, though.

Standard infotainment features include a 5-inch display, a seven-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. An 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, HD Radio, wireless device charging, a rear-seat entertainment system, Wi-Fi hot spot, navigation, a third-row USB port, and an 11-speaker premium stereo are available.

The driver and the front passenger enjoy comfortable seats with multi- adjustments. Even the second row is cozy, with supportive seating and abundant head- and legroom for taller passengers. The third row is similarly roomy enough for adults.

When it comes to cargo space, the Odyssey goes above and beyond. Not only does it offer plenty of cargo space, you get space that is cleverly designed, with a strap-handle set up that allows you to manually lift and lower third row seats.

Sliding rear doors is yet another major highlight of the Odyssey. The 2021 Odyssey features sliding rear doors that makes accessing and exiting the vehicle super easy. It definitely beats the standard doors that you normally get on an SUV.

The all-new Odyssey looks more or less similar to the Honda Pilot SUV and Honda Ridgeline pickup truck, mainly because they all share the same mechanical underpinnings.

main-image1The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is the truck that every Colorado fan has been waiting for.

chevrolet_21coloradozr2bisn4wdtc2fa_angularfront2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Truck Stock Photography: Angular Front View

Starting off with the exterior, Colorado optioned with the ZR2 package is definitely one of the wilder shaped trucks Chevy has come out within recent years.

chevrolet_21coloradozr2bisn4wdtc2fa_frontview2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Truck Stock Photography: Front View

Probably the most obvious update to Colorado is the redesigned front end on the ZR2 model. The front of the truck sports a burly front bumper, new headlights, and an aggressively shaped hood.

chevrolet_21coloradozr2bisn4wdtc2fa_angularrear2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Truck Stock Photography: Angular Rear View

On the side profile of the truck are new tubular reinforced rocker panels and wide fender flares blanketing large off road ready wheels and tires.

Coming around to the rear of Colorado, the ZR2 trim offers an off road sports bar in the bed, a full sized bed-mounted spare, off road top-mounted LED lights, and a rugged rear bumper.

With an available option of either a 6’2” or a 5’2” bed, Colorado is sure to haul whatever you have in mind. To top it off for you off road junkies, the ZR2 model also includes both exotic spool-valve shocks and electronic locking diffs on both axles.

chevrolet_21coloradozr2bisn4wdtc2fa_dashboard2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Truck Stock Photography: Interior View

Nothing major has been done to the interior for 2021 Colorado, however maybe that’s for a reason. It’s clean, simple, relatively intuitive, and rugged. It hasn’t gotten the same “luxury treatment” seen in the new 2021 Suburban. In fact, 2021 Colorado ZR2’s interior is actually more reminiscent of past years Suburban/Silverado interiors.

chevrolet_21coloradozr2bisn4wdtc2fa_frontseat2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Truck Stock Photography: Front Seats

The rear seats are pretty standard to most mid-compact trucks nowadays. Adequate room if you’re under 5’ 10”. However it is nice to see that leather seats are still available for the rear seats. There’s also some storage room underneath the rear seats, depending on cab option, which is a good place to store tools and whatever else necessary to keep you on the go.

chevrolet_21coloradozr2bisn4wdtc2fa_rearseat2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Truck Stock Photography: Rear Seats

Fully capable of anything, right from that weekly hardware store trip, to trekking you, family, and a week’s worth of camping gear up to the most remote of locations, Colorado ZR2 is the vehicle of choice for those who truly find new roads.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Using Stock Images in your Auto Dealer Blog

Stock-Images-for-your-Auto-Dealer-Blog_FB_Banner

When you start an auto dealer blog, you can’t give your readers plain text and still expect the blog to be popular. Include images in blog posts in order to make them more visually appealing.

So, where do you find photos and images for your blog?

Luckily, there are stock photo websites like izmostock.com that offer high-quality vehicle images.

Here are a few dos and don’ts.

Do’s

  1. Check for copyright

First things first: Never use a copyrighted car image without documented permission. Make sure that you are using images legally.

  1. Edit the images

If you have the right to modify and customize your stock images, use it to your advantage. Crop the images, collage them, add text and background, or even try cool filters.

You can also try out your hands on basic Photoshop tools.

  1. Choose images that communicate your value proposition

Images offer you a way to connect and engage with your audience. Choose stock photos that reinforce your branding. Try to consistently use images that are relevant to your blog style or content.

Don’ts

  1. Avoid using cheesy photos

One thing to keep in mind when choosing stock photos is to opt out of clichés. Say no to jugglery, false emotions, and images that are cheesy or staged. The reason is very simple, you want your audiences to connect with your images.

Remember, if the stock photos appear artificial, they are less likely to be engaging.

  1. Don’t go for irrelevant pictures

If your stock photos don’t relate to the point, you’re probably missing out on a great opportunity to connect with the audience. This explains why you need to choose photos that are specific and relate well to the points you are planning to convey.

  1. Say No to abstract images

Abstract images tend to do the opposite of what you want when you’re using visuals. They usually distract audiences from the overall message. Abstract light bulbs, clouds, and 3D figures are a bit overused in the realm of stock photos. Try to avoid them, except in the background.

How to Choose the Best Car Stock Photos for Facebook Ads

How-to-Choose_FB_Banner

An image is worth a thousand words, goes the adage. And in Facebook ads, your image is worth a thousand engagements. Remember, the very first thing that captures audience attention as the page scrolls by is the imagery.

Here are a few tips on how to choose the right car stock photos for your Facebook ads.

2. Look for authenticity

When choosing car stock photos, make sure that you don’t select pictures that appear vague and tasteless. Look for authentic stock photographs. Authentic vehicle images help auto retailers communicate their brand message more effectively.

3. Relevancy is the key

Relatable always wins, when it comes to finding car stock photos to illustrate your social ads. Look for images that are relevant to your ad’s marketing message, rather than going for just any image.

Adding pictures that do not closely relate to the ad can confuse potential customers. This is also likely to shake their trust in your brand and leave a negative impact on their purchase decisions.

4. Quality matters

Blurry images, dark lighting or poor image quality are a big NO! Even if you have a low budget, do not compromise on imagery.

5. Know your audience

Before you choose an image, think about the audience segments your product caters to. Don’t just go for the first car image you see. Rather, choose images that target your audiences effectively.

6. Choose fresh stock photos
Instead of choosing just the popular ones, you can select images that have not seen much use. Do in-depth research to find stock photos that are just the right fit for your content.

The Importance of Product Catalogs and Car Stock Photography

The-Importance_Insights_BannerIn auto retail, an online product catalog usually comes with different car makes and models, car stock images, color selectors, exteriors, interiors, options, price range, and more.

Here are some reasons why a product catalog is important.

1. Cost-Effective

The online product catalog is far more inexpensive than printed ones. It is not only cost-effective but can be quickly reconfigured to accommodate model changes. Retailers end up saving both time and money.

2. Increases Brand Awareness

Online product catalogs are only a click away – anytime, anywhere. They can be promoted on online and social media platforms to drive brand recall and leads.

3. Reduces Staff Training Hours

When all the information about a vehicle is easily available and accessible, there is no need to rote learn vehicle specs and features.

All that information is available with just one click.

4. Helps Reach Prospects Quickly

Research reveals that very few marketing tools can match a well-designed product catalog with a 70% opening rate. In addition, these catalogs can even be personalized.

5. Improves Conversions

Online product catalogs improve conversion rates. When prospects are already aware of features and specifications, the pressure on your sales team eases drastically.
