A First Look at the 2018 Dodge Durango

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge Ram near Glendale

We love the Dodge Durango and the many wonderful qualities that it has to offer. We are also super excited to share with you some of what we saw when we got our first look at the 2018 Dodge Durango. While it is not yet at All Star Dodge Ram near Glendale, it will be soon!

“When it comes to three-row SUVs, most manufacturers highlight civility, practicality and economy. Not Dodge. For the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, Dodge rolled out a brash, in-your-face zag to everyone’s zig in the form of the 2017 Dodge Durango SRT. Dodge calls it “America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV.””-edmonds.com

With a 6.4-liter V8 producing 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, the Durango SRT can accelerate to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, according to Dodge. In other words, not only can this SUV seat six and tow up to 8,600 pounds, it can keep up with many a German sport sedan. Thank the new launch control feature for this feat. Like sports cars, the Durango SRT can optimize traction control and shift parameters to ensure the fastest acceleration possible. It has multiple drive modes that are capable of changing the calibration of everything from the suspension and stability control to the center-differential torque split and transmission shift parameters. Combined with stiffer rear damping, springs and anti-roll bars, the Durango SRT is bound to handle about as sporty as a gigantic three-row SUV can. Bringing the speed down are Brembo brake calipers and 15-inch brake rotors up front and 13.8-inch brake rotors on the rear axle.

So when you think Dodge Durango, think utility meets sports car. Think agility and comfort. You will not find a better SUV on the market. So get to All Star and place your order for the 2018 Dodge Durango!

They also have friendly and knowledgeable staff that are ready to help you order and find any part that you might need for any of your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler Cars! Have you ever stopped to think about which auto parts are most commonly replaced? We got to thinking about it the other day after we had a lot of people looking for air filters and thought we would do a little digging and share with you what we found!

Since we already mentioned it….Air Filters – This part generally needs replacing around every 40,000 miles or possibly sooner if your vehicle is driven on dirty or gritty roads where large amounts of particles can be kicked up.

Brake Parts – Brake Components – All of the parts that are associated with the brake fluid system will succumb to internal corrosion over their lifetime. You will need to replace the calipers, wheel cylinders and master cylinder once every 100,000 miles.

Shocks and Struts – In some vehicles it may be the case that you never have to replace the shocks, however a slight unbalance in the car can cause the shocks to wear prematurely, as can travel on poor and degraded road surfaces. It is recommended that you change all your shocks at once to keep the ride quality consistently good.

Oil and Oil Filter – One of the most commonly changed car parts, your oil needs checking and replacing around every 4,000 miles to ensure the good, smooth running of your vehicle.

Alternator – “This part can suffer fatigue if it is used to run too many high power applications in the car. However it is always recommended to test the wiring and connections before replacing the entire unit.”-breakerlink.com

Dodge Charger: Unassuming and Classy

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge near Town and Country

When you think muscle car, you probably think of a loud engine, hard body lines, and a kind of “owning the road” attitude. With some muscle cars, this is true, but with the Dodge Charger it just isn’t so. Today, we want to talk a bit about why the Dodge Charger is different than the rest of the muscle car class. When you are ready to get your own Dodge Charger, head to All Star Dodge near Town and Country.

“If a “sleeper” is defined as an unassuming car that can blow the doors off most vehicles around it on a racetrack or drag strip, then we’re living in a golden age of sleepers. Practically every German luxury sedan that’s not powered by a four-cylinder wears stately sheet metal and packs upwards of 350 or 400 horsepower, so if every sedan is a sleeper, are any of them, really?”-nydailynews.com

The Dodge Charger is one you’d expect to fit the bill exactly. It’s even a cop car. And with the Challenger satiating the hunger for “no replacement for displacement” Mopar muscle car fans, the Charger reserves the right to do things subtly and with a bit more class. While the 392 is not the most powerful V8 in the Dodge stable, it’s arguably the best, offering plenty of tire-roasting torque and more usable power on a daily basis, not to mention cylinder deactivation technology that can help you achieve fuel economy that approaches a normal car when you’re cruising on the highway.

Take a test drive of the wonderful Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge today. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to help you get behind the wheel of one of these unassuming and classy muscle cars today!

Releasing the Demon

Dodge Challenger at All Star Dodge in MO

We believe that it is pretty easy to see that the Dodge Challenger at All Star Dodge in MO is probably the most powerful car on the market today. Especially when you consider the Demon Hellcat Challenger. Today we want to take a look at this model and what it might be like to drive it!

The Demon is the most powerful American car ever made. It has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that puts out 808 hp and still gets 22 mph on the highway. It’s an update of the Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 707 hp motor, which now seems quaint — even more so if you fit the Demon with the special engine control module, included in a tool-and-parts kit called the Demon Crate, that allows it to run on 100 octane race gas and bumps the power up to 840 hp to go with its 770 lb-ft of torque.

Over half of the Hellcat engine’s components were modified in the, including the block, and a monstrous 2.7-liter supercharger strapped on to the top of it. The Demon’s 8-speed automatic transmission, driveshaft, differential and half shafts are appropriately beefed-up, as well.

There is no manual transmission available, but the automatic is one of the coolest ever made. It’s equipped with a feature called a TransBrake. It’s a drag racing technology that, in this case, engages first and second gears simultaneously to bind the transmission, so you can step on the gas to build up torque in the engine and drivetrain without having to use the brakes, which wouldn’t be able to hold back much of what the Demon dishes out before the tires started spinning. Meanwhile, a torque converter with a high stall speed lets you rev engine even higher than you normally could without moving as you await the green light.

Let’s Talk Used Cars

Used Cars at All Star Dodge near Illinois

We know that smart shoppers want to get the biggest bang for their buck when buying a used car at All Star Dodge near Illinois. Today we want to share a few tips for ow to go about getting the best used car for your budget. All Star goes the extra mile to help you in your shopping as they have a huge selection of used cars! Check out their used car lot today!

Is it reliable? What are ownership costs like? – Every used car is different. Some have been driven more miles and have more wear and tear. But, in general, you want to make sure you’re choosing models known for their dependability. Consumer Reports and J.D. Power collect maintenance reports from owners and rate all used cars.

“A closely related issue is the total cost of ownership. Some cars are cheap to buy, but will cost a lot in the long run because of insurance, maintenance, repairs and depreciation. Several automotive websites, such as Kelley Blue Book’s Five-Year Cost to Own or other cost of ownership reporting sites.”-nerdwallet.com

Know Your Budget -There are really only two ways for you to buy a car: Pay cash or take out a loan. If you’re paying cash, budgeting is pretty simple. But don’t spend all your savings. Remember to set aside money for registration and insurance — and possible future repairs.

Most people take out a car loan so they can protect their savings and buy a more expensive model. It’s smart to get preapproved for a car loan because it simplifies the buying process and puts you in a stronger position at the car dealership. While preapproval is great, not everyone will be about to qualify. No worries though as All Star offers guaranteed financing!

Did You Know You can Still Get a Dart?

Dodge Dart at All Star Dodge near O’Fallon

It is no secret that the Dodge Dart as we know it is no longer in production. Dodge brought this model back to life a number of years ago after it had been on hiatus for more than a decade. It seems to be a new trend that auto makers bring back classic cars from the 1970’s for a limited time and then put them back away. Will these models be making their way out into production in another 30 years? We don’t know, but it is fun to speculate! We want to share a bit of information on the Dodge Dart that you can still get at All Star Dodge near O’Fallon.

The new Dart lineup, available this month at Dodge dealerships, has shrunk to three models instead of five. They are the new Dart SXT Sport, Dart Turbo and Dart GT Sport.

Previously, the 2016 Dart was offered in SE, SXT, Aero, GT and Limited models. The Dart SXT Sport is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine a standard six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic transmission.

Standard features include remote keyless entry, Uconnect voice command with Bluetooth, Sirius Satellite radio, air-conditioning, cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls and 16-inch aluminum wheels. Standard equipment includes a sport appearance hood, integrated dual exhaust and a Rallye Appearance package that bundles black headlight bezels, a black grille surround with black crosshair and 17-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels. A long list of standard equipment includes a 10-way power driver’s seat, rearview camera, dual-zone automatic temperature control and 17-inch Granite Crystal aluminum wheels.

All Star Stocked Up!

Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge near Saint Charles

You might have heard that there is a shortage of the Dodge Grand Caravan, but no need to worry, All Star Dodge near Saint Charles is all stocked up! You might be wondering why a dealership would need to stock up on a minivan, or any vehicle for that matter. It’s because sometimes plants have to go on hiatus to be retooled for the next year’s models production to begin! This may be the case for the Dodge Grand Caravan!

The reason for the Grand Caravan’s extended production break is unclear. Two FCA spokespeople did not respond to requests for comment on the hiatus or whether the vehicle would be significantly altered when it returns as a 2018 model. Officials with Unifor, the union representing Canadian auto workers at FCA’s Windsor Assembly plant in Ontario, could not be reached for comment.

Such production breaks are common if a vehicle’s supply outstrips demand, but FCA began June with just 11,967 unsold Grand Caravans in inventory, a 22-day supply, which was the lowest days’ supply of any vehicle in FCA’s lineup. By way of comparison, its line mate, the Chrysler Pacifica, started June with a more standard 66-day supply.

“FCA has extended the life of the Grand Caravan at least twice. Originally, production was to end when what became the Pacifica debuted in 2016. But executives initially spared the ax when they realized that they needed the Grand Caravan to cover the value end of the minivan market and to meet continuing demand for minivans from daily rental fleet providers, with both actions not only generating profits but protecting the residual values of the newly launched Pacifica.”-autonews.com

What Do You Need for Guaranteed Financing?

Guaranteed Financing at All Star Dodge near Oakville

Navigating the waters that is guaranteed financing can be tricky, but at All Star Dodge near Oakville, they want to make things a little easier. Not all dealerships offer guaranteed financing, but All Star wants to make sure to go the extra mile for their customers. We want to tell you a bit about what you might need to take advantage of guaranteed financing.

Proof of Income – In many cases, lenders of guaranteed auto loans require proof of income in the form of paycheck stubs, income tax return or other documentation that can validate the applicant has work history and current income that is accurately reported on the application. Since the lender is not usually going by actual credit history, they are taking a risk in offering a guaranteed auto loan and want to make sure that the person who is applying for the loan can afford the monthly car payments.

Proof of Insurance – Another requirement that many lenders of guaranteed auto loans require is proof of auto insurance. If the person applying for the loan already owns a car and has auto insurance, then this requirement is usually fairly easy to supply. The applicant can show a copy of their auto policy and usually obtain a temporary insurance provision for the purchase of a new car. If, however, the applicant does not currently own a car, they will need to secure auto insurance before completing the loan process. This is also a standard requirement for most other types of auto loans.

It is important to remember that each person is an individual case and All Star will handle their auto loan accordingly. If you have anymore questions about the guaranteed financing process, just talk to a member of the All Star Dodge team!
