The V-6 Motor – All versions of the new Caravan come equipped with Dodge’s proven Pentastar engine. The potent V-6 engine pumps out a hearty 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Although the Dodge Caravan will never be mistaken for a sports car, it can easily keep up with the typical family sedan. A six-speed automatic transmission comes standard.

Lovely Trims – Although minivans are typically known for their ability to haul a lot of passengers, the Caravan R/T also offers a quite sporty ride. Fitted with a sports-tuned suspension system and a set of high-performance tires, the R/T model is shockingly fun to drive. Unlike some of the other minivans that suffer from a lot of body roll, the Caravan R/T performs well on curvy roads.

You Can Easily See Out – “While the Dodge Caravan is available with driving aids such as a rear-view camera, some drivers may not even need them. When driving around on an everyday basis, the driver will benefit from the minivan’s superb outward visibility. A high seating position also gives the driver an outstanding view of the road. This helps to keep everyone secure.” -carbuyingstrategies.com

These are just a few things that make the Dodge Grand Caravan a really impressive vehicle to own and to drive. For more information on this delightful minivan, head to All Star today! Their team is ready to assist you in getting behind the wheel of this impressive automobile.

What Is Guaranteed Financing?

Business Man Pointing the Text: Financial Trouble? We Can Help!

Guaranteed Financing at All Star Dodge Ram near Arnold

What do you do when you need to get a new vehicle but your credit is not awesome? The answer is simple, you head to All Star Dodge Ram near Arnold and take advantage of their guaranteed financing. Wondering what guaranteed financing is? We want to answer that today!

“Guaranteed auto financing is a loan that you take out at a guaranteed auto financing car lot. It consists of a down payment plus a fixed number of loan payments. The loan payments are due every week and are usually made in person at the lot you finance the car from. You are financing the car from the company that owns it and if you fall behind on your monthly payments, it is the dealer that you will talk to regarding other payment arrangements.” -autocreditexpress.com

Not all payment schedules call for a payment to be made every week, but you get the idea. With guaranteed financing, the dealership is your lender. This makes them more accessible than a bank or third party financing agency. If you need to alter your payment arrangement or have concerns regarding your current financial position, you can just head to the All Star dealership and work with a member of their financing team. You get a more direct connection with your lender. This will usually lead to an improved credit score for you, the buyer! This is a great thing for those who need a little help in the credit department!

For more information on guaranteed financing and on the different Dodge Ram vehicles that are available, head to All Star and work with a member of their team. They would be more than happy to share with you how guaranteed financing works!

Should I Buy a Ram 3500?

Los Angeles USA - November 19 2015: RAM 3500 on display during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Ram 3500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Creve Coeur

The short answer to the question is YES! You should buy the Ram 3500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Creve Coeur. It’s a truly amazing truck that is ready to handle nearly anything that you can throw at it. Today we want to share with you some of the benefits of buying a Ram 3500.

It’s Heavy Duty – Ram built the new 3500 to outlast an ordinary pickup truck. From mud-soaked construction sites to off-road trails, the 3500 can be used in a variety of rugged environments. Not even frozen tundra is a match for the durable Ram 3500. The truck’s steel chassis can take a pounding. This is a key advantage for the truck owners who need to get a job done.

Impressive Warranty – The Ram 3500 is certainly a durable driving machine. However, there is always a chance that a mechanical problem may arise. Fortunately, the pickup truck is supported by a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The lengthy warranty will give buyers an extra degree of assurance. If the owner does experience a problem with the engine or transmission, Ram will cover the cost of the repair work.

Class Leading Fuel Economy – When equipped with the 6.7-liter Cummings diesel engine, the Ram 3500 can tow up to 30,000 pounds. Although there are other heavy-duty trucks on the market, none can match the Ram 3500’s towing capabilities. The Cummings diesel engine pounds out around 400 horsepower and a monstrous 865 pound-feet of torque. As soon as the driver touches the throttle, they will immediately feel the engine’s thrust.

For more information on the Ram 3500, head to All Star today. Their team would be more than happy to assist you in selecting the right Ram 3500 trim to suit your heavy duty driving needs.

Used Cars at All Star Dodge Ram near Ladue

It is officially the Christmas season! Thanksgiving was wonderful, Black Friday was an early day and we are putting up our trees. If you were not able, or did not want to get out, on Black Friday to take advantage of the amazing deals on the Dodge Ram vehicles at All Star near Ladue, you still can get a great deal on the used cars!

All Star has an amazing selection of used cars and certified used cars on their dealership lot. It is easy to find the right vehicle to suit your driving needs, or wants. Their great selection of vehicles is not the only reason to buy a used car, you also need to consider:

The price – You will save thousands of dollars by purchasing a used car. In fact, based on the data cited above, you’ll spend $13,500 less by choosing the average used car instead of the average new car. Why is this? New cars depreciate, and fast. Sign the paperwork for a brand-new car, drive it off the lot, take a ride around town, and then return the car to the dealership. It isn’t a new car anymore. It is a used car. And because it is a used car, it is worth substantially less than you paid for it just an hour prior.

Great rates and terms -While it is true that you will typically pay a higher interest rate on a loan for a used vehicle than you will on a loan for a new vehicle, historically low rates mean that many automakers can offer attractive financing options for their CPO vehicles.

For more information on the different used cars available, stop by All Star today!

 

Are You a Renegade?

ISTANBUL TURKEY - MAY 21 2015: Jeep Renegade in Istanbul Autoshow 2015

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Oakville

Are you one who likes to live life on the edge? Do you need a vehicle that can keep up with your very active lifestyle? If so, then you need to get the Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Oakville. Today we want to share with you some of the features that make the Jeep Renegade such a great off-road vehicle.

It Comes with Turbo Power! – Standard on the entry-level edition of the 2015 Jeep Renegade is a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes use of a turbocharger to produce 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.  The motor, which features Fiat’s ‘Multiair’ design in order to improve fuel efficiency, turns in 24-mpg in stop and go driving and 31-mpg on the highway, which are very competitive figures for a compact SUV.  Even more intriguing is the fact that the Jeep Renegade’s turbo engine is available exclusively with a six-speed manual, a type of gearbox that is increasingly absent from the sport-utility universe.

Look Under the Hood –

If you’re looking for more power – and an automatic transmission – then the 2015 Jeep Renegade provides it in the form of a 2.4-liter ‘Tigershark’ four-cylinder engine.  Capable of generating 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of twist, the trade-off compared to the torquier turbo engine is somewhat smoother highway performance.  A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with the Tigershark mill, and while it might seem a bit like overkill Jeep claims that the availability of so many specific ratios helps keep the Renegade efficient without requiring the use of continuously-variable automatic design.  Fuel mileage figures for the 2.4-liter edition of the SUV have yet to be released.

Repairs are SO Important

Collision Repair Center at All Star near Glendale

Oh no, you have been in an accident! After you have made sure that you and your passengers are all ok, you need to make sure that your vehicle is ok. Repairs after an accident are so important because you need to get your vehicle so that it is safe to ride in once again. Today we want to share with you why repairs post collision are so important.

“Even if the damage done to your car is mostly just cosmetic, it is important to get a collision repair done as quickly as you can. You never know if something that looks harmless is causing – or could cause – harm to interior parts like the engine or an axle.  Getting a collision repair done immediately could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run.” – Jerry Rhynes

There are two vital components of a collision repair. The first is the parts that are used. It is important that the highest quality of replacement parts are utilized for your collision repair. This will ensure that your vehicle is restored back to the way it looked before the accident. Good parts will also go a long way to guaranteeing that your collision repair is solid and durable.

If you were unfortunate enough to have suffered a major collision, it is essential that you have the entire car inspected. As previously mentioned, a small dent may look harmless, but it could have caused damage under the hood. One area that is often affected in a collision is the frame. If a frame has been hurt, it can have an impact on how the car drives.

Let the team at the Collsion Repair Center at All Star near Glendale get your vehicle back into top notch condition.

Journey for Your Journey

MOSCOW RUSSIA - JUNE 2 2013: Motor car Dodge Journey at the city street.

Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge near St. Louis

Shopping for a new minivan does not have to be a big task. You do not have to journey all over the St. Louis area for your new Dodge Journey. All you need to do is head to All Star near St. Louis.
