A Letter from Herb
It's Tradition
Have you ever wondered where the idea for the “Presidents’ Day Sales Event” originated from? Well, here in New England and more specifically in Boston, the credit can be directed to Alvan T. Fuller.

An enterprising teenager from Malden, Fuller made Presidents’ Day synonymous with an auto-selling extravaganza dating back over a century. Long before becoming Massachusetts’ fifty second Governor, in the late 1800’s, he first explored the idea that Washington’s birthday would be a great time for an “open house” to promote vehicle sales at his Commonwealth Avenue car emporium. According to several historians, he popularized the event by including live orchestras, decorations, and personal invitations to visit his Boston showrooms. According to his biography, by the 1920’s, Fuller's once-struggling business "was recognized as the world's most successful auto dealership."

Today, many of the traditions that started in the heart of our city with Alvan T. Fuller continue to be what will bring us together this weekend. We are proud to carry on these Massachusetts’ traditions, many of which are celebrated throughout the country on the third weekend in February each year. In fact, The Herb Chambers Companies Presidents’ Day Sales Event is going on NOW at every Herb Chambers location. Like Alvan T. Fuller once did, we personally invite you to visit any of our dealerships, and check out the largest selection of cars, trucks, and SUVs in New England.

2023 Ford F150
The full-size pickup truck segment is one of the most competitive in the automotive world, and the perennial sales king of the class is the Ford F-150. It’s a best-seller for good reasons. It offers truck buyers just about everything they could want (except a diesel engine), whether you want a humble work truck, an off-road beast, a finely-tailored luxury vehicle, or anything in between.

And, once again, the F-150 is this year’s Full-Size Truck Best Buy.

Some significant upgrades for 2023 include the supercharged V8-powered Raptor R, a Heritage Edition celebrating 75 years of the F-Series, and a Rattler Package offering off-road style and capability at an affordable price point. The chief rivals of the F-150 are the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ram 1500.

2023 BMW iX
The BMW iX is now officially a range. Last year, the lineup was just one model, the xDrive50. This year sees the addition of the 2023 iX M60.
This is significant. For BMW to make an M version of what is still a new vehicle without an established track record (so to speak; the iX debuted only last year) shows the company’s commitment to electric vehicles while retaining the talents for which BMW cars — especially versions from the high-performance M division — are quite rightly praised.
Another aspect of all this is how battery technology is now at the level where it can be a convincing method of propulsion for luxury cars and sporty cars alike. Ranges are great enough to dispel anxiety, charging times are quick enough to be practical. The lithium-ion battery in the iX has an 8-year/100,000-mile warranty.
Speaking of lithium, and cobalt, aluminum, carbon fiber reinforced plastic, and all the other particular elements that go into making a modern electric vehicle, BMW is taking steps to ensure they are all sourced responsibly and sustainably — with transparency and respecting human rights.
