    Gary Uftring

    Dealer Principal

    Gary Uftring has been a fixture to central Illinois car buyers for many years, including before he acquired his first dealership in Washington, Illinois. Mr. Uftring began his automotive career on the wash rack at a small dealership in Minonk, Illinois. Armed with the determination to succeed and the desire to become a top salesman, he took advantage of opportunities as a “fill-in” sales consultant when the store was short-staffed. When he turned 18, the owner of the dealership agreed to let him sell cars full time. Because he was so young, Mr. Uftring focused on exceptional product knowledge and a passion for cars – two traits that continue to serve him well to this day. Over the years, Mr. Uftring has developed and/or acquired multiple automotive dealerships in central Illinois. However, his focus has always remained on great customer service and a commitment to giving back to the community.

    During my almost 15 years with Uftring Ford, treating customers in a courteous and friendly manner has always been my top priority. The Uftring Ford is the most ethical dealer I have ever worked with during my 20 years in the auto industry. Helping a customer find their perfect vehicle is still one of the greatest feelings and is my goal with everyone I talk with at the dealership. Though I am proud to be born and raised in Peoria, I love taking a vacation to the Gulf Coast of Florida with my wife and two wonderful children. I am also proud to be a U.S. Marine and a Freemason.
