Did Someone Say Daytona?

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge near Arnold

It was gone for a while but now it’s back, that’s right, we are talking about the Dodge Charger Daytona! We are so excited to share with you more information on the new and improved Charger Daytona that is available at All Star Dodge near Arnold!

Last seen in the 2013 model year, the Charger Daytona takes its inspiration from the big-winged Charger Daytona coupe that Dodge built in 1969 for NASCAR racing.

The Charger Daytona wears front- and rear-end bodywork that mimics its SRT and R/T Scat Pack brethren; however, the Daytona plows its own styling path by including model-specific matte-black design details including a rear spoiler, roof, a “Hemi” graphic on the center-mounted hood-scoop bulge, and “Daytona” graphics on the rear quarter-panels. Like the Challenger T/A, the Daytona also will be available in a handful of retro paint hues, including Green Go and Yellow Jacket.

Two Daytona models will be available: the Daytona and the Daytona 392. Dodge’s 5.7-liter V-8 powers the former, while the brand’s 6.4-liter V-8 motivates the latter. The two engines benefit from an intake capped with a Mopar conical air filter, as well as a burly exhaust system. Both are the same V-8s you’ll find in their respective non-Daytona counterparts, which make 370 and 485 horsepower in the 2016 models. (This information was compiled from caranddriver.com and dodge.com.)

It’s not all about what is on the outside or under the hood, the interior matters too! Inside, the Daytona is fitted with power-adjustable, heated and cooled front seats. Gold accent stitching is used throughout the interior, including for the embroidered Daytona logos on the front seats. A Daytona badge is also present on the instrument panel. Additional kit includes a power-adjustable steering column, driver’s-seat memory, HD headlights, LED interior lighting, and rear parking sensors.

What You Need to Know about the Challenger Hellcat

Dodge Challenger at All Star Dodge near Ladue

When it comes to muscle cars, the Dodge Challenger reigns supreme. We are so happy to announce the the 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is just about ready for release to be available at All Star Dodge near Ladue by the end of this year (hopefully!). Today we want to take a look at what you need to know about the new Challenger Hellcat.

Designed explicitly for drag racing, the Demon is the first street-legal production car that can lift its front wheels off the ground under hard acceleration. It has 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. It’ll hit 60 mph in 2.3 seconds, 100 mph in 5.1 seconds and blitz the quarter-mile lights in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.

With a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 and bodywork about as aerodynamic as the factory this car came out of, you could be forgiven for thinking SRT simply resorted to a blunt-force-trauma approach to more speed — more power.

You’d be half right, but despite resurrecting a storied ’70s nameplate, the Demon is no knuckle-dragger — there’s a truly surprising amount of technology and production-firsts at work here. Dodge has found ways to make just about every old-school drag-racer performance trick reliable enough to slip into a production car and still slap a warranty on it.

“The SRT Demon is the first factory-production car available with a specially-calibrated engine control computer to take advantage of 100 plus octane race gas. It’s the first production car equipped with a transbrake, which locks the transmission so that drag racers don’t have to worry about standing on the brakes to prevent creeping through the timing lights when dialing up the RPMs at the starting line — you just tug the steering wheel paddles to launch.”-cnet.com

Benefits of Buying Used

Used Cars at All Star Dodge near Clayton

When it comes to buying a new or used car, no one has a better selection than All Star Dodge near Clayton. Today we want to talk about some of the benefits of buying a used car from the All Star dealership.

You will get a better price on a used car. -It’s nice to ride in a car that no one has ever owned before, with that new car smell and feel. But, that scent, brand new upholstery without a single flaw, and single digit mileage doesn’t come cheap. The price gap between new and used vehicles was around $20,000 as of earlier this year, according to Cars.com.

The interest rates on new cars do tend to be slightly lower than they are on used cars, however. Bankrate reports the average 48-month rates on new cars at 4%, while used car rates are slightly higher — at 4.99%. In spite of the higher rates, in most cases, you still end up with a much smaller total bill when you opt for a used vehicle.

You save on depreciation. – “Not only do new cars lose a large portion of their value immediately, they are also precious to new car owners who feel a gut punch when normal wear and tear inevitably happens. Some new cars lose as much as 40% of their value during the first year. “With a used car, there’s no depreciation hit the second you roll off the lot. There’s also less mental depreciation, no need to worry about the first parking-lot ding or rock chip in the paint because chances are the car’s previous owner or owners took care of those for you,” Car and Driver reports.”-cheatsheet.com

Do I Need Guaranteed Financing?

Guaranteed Financing at All Star Dodge near Ladue

It seems you have found yourself in a pickle. You need to get a new car, but your credit is not great. You are worried that you won’t get an auto loan or that if you do, it’s not going to be a very good rate or that it won’t improve your credit score. Luckily, there is guaranteed financing offered at All Star Dodge near Ladue. Today we want to share with you some of the advantages of guaranteed financing.

There are a number of advantages of taking advantage of guaranteed financing at All Star. Advantages: The cars are usually less expensive. Many people prefer to make payments on a weekly basis. Car payments are made face to face, so you know your agent personally and they know you personally. And many of the dealers offering guaranteed auto financing don’t bother with a credit check before selling you a car. You will need to check with the finance department at All Star to verify this information. Each dealership is a little different, but the All Star team works very hard to help every customer and they go the extra mile to ensure that your credit score will be improved through their program.

Does buying a pre-owned vehicle really help me reestablish my credit ?

Yes, when checking with the credit bureau, many lending institutions look at automobile loans closer than any other type of loan (other than home loans) to verify your credit standing. Buying a car from a “buy here, pay here” lot that does not report to the credit reporting agency is simply not a good option because it does not help your credit record at all. All Star is not a buy here, pay here lot, they genuinely want to help you get your credit score back on track. Get to All Star today!

Go Your Own Way in a Dodge Journey

Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge near IL

The Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge near IL is a wonderful vehicle that has a bunch of surprises that you might not expect. While some people only think of the Dodge Journey for its family hauling capabilities, it really has a lot of other wonderful things to offer. Today we want to share with you part of a conversation that we recently had with someone who bought the latest version of the Dodge Journey.

What were your initial impressions?: The engine has more power than I really need, all the room I could ask for (including two beer coolers that are removable under the second row seats), AWD, a huge infotainment screen that I still have yet to touch because it kind of intimidates me, and a bunch of other little niceties that I didn’t really expect (self-dimming rear view mirror, built in booster seats for kids, removable flashlight built into trunk, actual power outlet in the backseat).

How do you like driving it?: It rides like a cloud, smooth and quiet. Though the trim piece around the infotainment screen makes a slight creak on the occasional bump.

Do you see yourself driving this vehicle long-term?: Overall I think I am going to be very happy with this car, I like sitting up higher and after driving my previous car, it is going to take some getting used to but you certainly can’t argue that it’s an extremely versatile vehicle. If all goes well reliability wise, which it should since it’s from All Star, I think I will keep this SUV for a long time.

Would the Dodge Durango be the Right Choice for You?

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge Ram near Florissant

If you are shopping around for a great SUV that has 3 rows of seats and loads of character, you need to check out the Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge Ram near Florissant. This SUV is as powerful as it is comfortable, but don’t take our word for it! We want to share with you what some real owners had to say about their Dodge Durango!
Great vehicle, great value. I was in the market for a new good size SUV ,with great towing features and capacity. Dodge Durango was the perfect fit. I use this vehicle to transport cargo and family. This vehicle covers all aspects of my busy lifestyle from camping,towing my boat, bringing stuff home for my lawn and garden. I couldn’t find a better fit for my lifestyle. I am impressed with the design and performance from this vehicle. If you are looking for a vehicle that’s not going to put you to sleep the Durango is what you are looking for. I am very satisfied in my choice. I smile every time I get in and start this SUV.-James

We bought a new 2017 Durango AWD RT after having an accident in our trusty Jeep Commander HEMI. I drive a Corvette with 465hp and must say, this thing is a BLAST to drive (Keep sport mode on and “eco” mode off). For a family car, you just can’t go wrong. Our Commander was nice, but so much improvement in engine/transmission/electronics over the past 6 years means a MUCH smoother, faster, better sounding beast than I could have imagined. I love this truck and am truly happy with it. Highly recommended! PS, the kids love the extra room in the 3rd row over the Commander too. -Dev

What’s Coming for Dodge?

New Cars at All Star Dodge in Bridgeton

We love the current line up of vehicles at All Star Dodge in Bridgeton, but it’s nice to look to the future to see what we can expect to see from Dodge in the coming years. Today we want to look at a little timeline to see what models are coming.

2018: Jeep Wrangler (JL), Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody, Dodge Durango SRT and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

2019: Ram 1500 (DT), Special new performance packages on Charger and Challenger SRT392 and Hellcat models, Jeep Cherokee (KL) refresh, Jeep Renegade (BU), Ram HD (DJ/D2) refresh, JT pickup

2020: Jeep Grand Cherokee (WL), Dodge Durango (WE?), Grand Wagoneer/Wagoneer (WS), Stelvio-Journey replacement (??), Chrysler midsize CUV based on KL, Chrysler fullsize CUV (RD), Jeep K8 (Euro-Asia), Ram ProMaster (VG)

2021: Chrysler 300 (GX), Dodge Charger (GD), Dodge Challenger (GA), new Ram HD (DK/D3), Ram ProMaster City (VN)

2022: Dodge midsize RWD Sedan (G?), Portal based electric minivan (RE?)

Ram HD moved back to 2021; current trucks will get a 2019 mild refresh.

“The Chrysler and Dodge large cars (Challenger, Charger, 300) might still be updated for model-year 2019 to get updated Pentastar engines and other refinements for their final two or three years. Here’s another rendering of what the 2019 Chrysler 300 may look like. (Sources are now saying the current versions will soldier on until they are replaced around 2020-21.) The Chrysler Portal was, we were told, a preview of new styling themes to come — perhaps replacing the relatively low-key Pacifica’s themes.”-allpar.com
