ave you ever wished you had two trucks one for work and one for play? Sometimes its hard to hand the keys to the valet at the fancy steak house knowing the bulky ladder rack on your pickup will stick out like a sore thumb. Dee Zee can help with Invis-A-Rack, the revolutionary ladder rack system that transforms from invisible to invaluable in seconds. The patented design makes it virtually disappear when folded down and not in use. And when you need it, a series of lockable arms and supports snaps into place and is ready to go in under a minute literally. Its not just a ladder rack. Its a canoe hauler. Or for any longer item you need to haul while freeing up the truck bed for other gear. The strong aluminum construction means it will hold up to 500 lbs. and because it folds down when not in use, its the most fuel-efficient rack on the market today. And dont worry about poking a ton of holes in your pickup. Invis-A-Rack installs easily without drilling. Part numbers are available in three sizes: 5.5, 6+6.5, and 8 beds. The engineering is the same but the two longer styles benefit from an integrated bungee box, perfect for straps, cords or other smaller tools. The powder coated finish means no rust and easy cleanup. The story of Invis-A-Rack starts in the garage of North Carolina entrepreneur 8

and Navy veteran of the Gulf War Donny McCall. He found a way to make ladder racks useful when you need them and also when you dont. He began production and quickly discovered demand was outpacing supply. So he looked for help with an appearance on ABCs Shark Tank, a show on which inventors ask for financial assistance from a panel of venture capitalists. Mr. McCall made an emotional pitch to the panel only to be told no by the panel. Each said it would be much more profitable to make Invis-A-Rack overseas but Donny stuck by his guns and said he would never take production from the United States. He walked out of the studio empty handed except for his ideals and patriotism. Fast forward to June of 2012 when Dee Zee reached out and struck up a deal to take over production, marketing and distribution of Invis-A-Rack in their facilities in Des Moines, Iowa. No stranger to American manufacturing, Dee Zee is proud of the fact that 95% of all products they sell are made in the United States. That includes tool boxes, running boards, bed protection as well as most of their tubular nerf steps. Dee Zee will be launching this exciting new product at this years SEMA Show in Las Vegas in late October at which time theyll be ready to ship. SG

After extensive changes for 2012 including updated exterior styling, an enhanced interior, additional features on selected models, and an EPA fuel economy-rating2 improvement, the Insight continues unchanged for 2013. The 2013 Honda Insight remains the most affordable hybrid for sale in the U.S., and pricing is unchanged for 2013, starting at $18,5003. The 2013 Insight goes on sale September 18. The 2013 Insight is offered in three models. The value-oriented base model is simply designated as Insight, and is well equipped with a 160-watt audio system, automatic climate control, power windows, and more. The Insight LX adds a USB audio interface, cruise control, armrest console, floor mats, security system and steering-wheel mounted audio controls. The Insight EX adds alloy wheels, six-speaker audio system, heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, automatic headlights and a leatherwrapped steering wheel. The Insight EX is also available with the Honda SatelliteLinked Navigation System4 with voice recognition and rearview camera. Powertrain A Honda Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system powers the Insight. Comprised of a 1.3-liter i-VTEC gasoline 4-cylinder engine and a 10-kilowatt electric motor, the combination develops 98 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 123 lb-ft. of torque at 1000-1700 rpm. To maximize fuel efficiency, friction-reducing measures are used throughout the engine and the transmission. Fully automatic in operation, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is an advanced unit that substitutes the gears found in more traditional transmissions and replaces them with a metal push-belt running between a pair of variable-width pulleys. Combined with the Drive-by-Wire throttle system, the CVT constantly adjusts to provide the most efficient drive ratio possible depending on torque load. Hondas CVT provides better fuel efficiency and acceleration when compared to a conventional transmission. On EX models, the steering wheel includes paddle shifters, which allow manually shifting though a range of seven fixed ratios for a sporty driving experience. The Insight comes equipped with fuel-efficiency enhancement technology called Eco Assist. A push of the dashmounted ECON button modifies throttle control, CVT operation, idle-stop duration, air conditioning and cruise-control operation (if so equipped) to minimize energy use and increase fuel efficiency. A sophisticated feedback system uses ambient color behind the speedometer to indicate overall driving efficiency. An Eco Display provides feedback on braking and acceleration. Plus, Eco Score provides ongoing support of an efficient driving style. Body The Insight was given significant updates for the 2012 model year, including a more distinctive grille design with a blue accent bar representing the Insights high-tech hybrid identity. To improve aerodynamic performance, the strakes ahead of the front wheels were extended by 0.4 inches to better direct air around the front tires. The shape of the engine bay underbody cover was also fine-tuned, and air diffusers were added under the rear bumper to smooth airflow behind 60

the vehicle. The changes combined to net a 2-percent increase in aerodynamic performance. Chassis The Insight rides on MacPherson strut front suspension, combined with a torsionbeam rear suspension that helps maximize interior space. Electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion power steering (EPS) offers predictable and linear steering feel, while also saving fuel compared to traditional hydraulic systems that put a greater load on the engine. With its 36.1foot turning diameter, the Insight offers good maneuverability in congested urban settings. Insight and Insight LX models have 15-inch stamped-steel wheels with wheel covers and the Insight EX has 15inch alloy wheels. Interior The Insights roomy interior offers comfortable seating for up to five passengers. Versatility is a key Insight strong point, and the 60/40 split rear seatbacks fold down to create a large 31.5 cubic-foot cargo space and make it easy to mix passengers and cargo.

Advanced instrumentation gives the Insight an upscale look, and provides the driver with key information at a glance. A large digital speed display is positioned high in the instrument cluster, close to

the drivers sightline and easy to see. The convenient Multi-Information Display (MID) allows quick access to a range of useful information with convenient steering-wheel mounted c o n t r o l s .

Automatic climate control is standard on all grades. The Insight LX has premium seat fabric, while the Insight EX is upholstered with a combination of synthetic leather and premium fabric. Available on Insight EX models, the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition4 includes a rearview camera and provides routing and guidance to individual addresses and more than 7-million points of interest within the continental United States. With its 16-GB memory system, it offers fast route calculation and includes FM traffic, a subscription-free service that alerts drivers to traffic conditions. Safety Standard safety features on all Insight models include dual-stage, multiplethreshold front airbags, front-side airbags with a passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), sidecurtain airbag system, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution (EBD), drivers and front-passengers active head restraints, and a front body structure designed to help mitigate pedestrian injuries. The Insight also features Hondas Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, which provides improved occupant protection and crash compatibility between vehicles of different sizes and ride heights in frontal crashes. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the Insight a 2012 Top Safety Pick. IIHS rates vehicles on performance in front and side crash tests, a rollover test, and evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. To earn a 2012 Top Safety Pick rating, a vehicle must have good results (the highest possible) in all four Institute tests. Manufacturing and Awards The Insight is manufactured by Honda in Suzuka, Japan. Though the Insight features advanced hybrid technology, that doesnt mean it takes a lot of money to buy or maintain one. The Honda Insight received a 2012 Total Cost of Ownership Award from Kelley Blue Books kbb.com. With its low starting price, excellent fuel mileage and exceptional Honda reliability, the Insight is a great value. Consumer information is available at automobiles.honda.com. 12012 model-year vehicles projected ownership costs are based on the average Kelley Blue Book Total Cost of Ownership data for the initial five-year ownership period.
