Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Ellisville
When you want a powerful SUV with 3 rows of seats and power to boot, you get the Dodge Durango from All Star Dodge near Ellisville. Today we want to talk a bit more about the Dodge Durango SRT and all that it has to offer.
The aggressive Durango SRT took home the Cars.com Best in Show award at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show earlier this year for its mix of performance and style, while still maintaining practicality. R/T models won’t get the SRT’s big 6.4-liter V-8, but they will get the SRT’s front styling, which includes a more aggressive front bumper with larger air inlets and most notably, the performance hood. The hood isn’t just for looks: The ducting and openings are functional, with a prominent hood scoop flanked by a pair of heat extractors.
Prices haven’t been announced yet, but it should represent a nice savings for buyers who want the SRT look without the SRT performance premium. For example, the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 starts at $11,200 more than R/T 392’s $40,090, which includes a destination charge and gas-guzzler tax.
The performance hood will also be available on GT models equipped with the Blacktop or Brass Monkey Appearance Package.
“R/T models also add standard features for 2018, including front park assist and a BeatsAudio nine-speaker audio system. It will also be offered in B5 Blue paint, one of only two models offered in that color (alongside the SRT). The Durango GT adds a standard power liftgate and Capri/suede bucket leather seats.”-cars.com
Head to All Star and take a test drive of the powerful Dodge Durango SRT and experience the power for yourself. We are sure that you are going to love all of the agility and power that this amazing SUV has to offer.
Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near O’Fallon
We are seeing a big shift in the auto industry – a shift towards electric cars. Chrysler has been keeping ahead of the curve by offering an electric version of the Chrysler Pacifica. The Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near O’Fallon is a favorite minivan crossover that offers style, agility, and comfort all at an affordable price. Today we want to take a deeper look at this get Chrysler vehicle.
There are a lot of reasons we think the Chrysler Pacifica is the best minivan on the market right now. It offers more amenities than the aging Toyota Sienna and a quieter, smoother ride than even the newly redesigned Honda Odyssey. This year, though, the Pacifica is pole-vaulting straight over the Japanese competition by rolling out something new and innovative: a plug-in electric hybrid powertrain.
It can drive on electric power for up to 33 miles before the gasoline engine turns on. Considering minivans are used so often for daily school and grocery runs, it means many families can do most of their driving on battery power instead of burning gas. If you install a 240-volt charging system in your garage, the battery can completely recharge in as little as two hours, Chrysler claims. It also retains the same smooth, silent road manners and family-friendly cabin amenities that make the regular Pacifica so appealing for highway trips.
“With the introduction of the Pacifica van, which replaced the Town & Country in 2016, Chrysler improved the drive quality and feature set so dramatically that the Japanese products were suddenly on defense for the first time in a decade, if not longer.”-nwitimes.com

All Star Dodge Ram Jeep Chrysler near St. Louis
We all have had those bad customer service experiences. We recently had one at a well-known St. Louis area restaurant, and it really ruined our evening. We had had great service there before but that night, it was very poor. Consistency seems to be hard for businesses in the customer service industry as of late. There is one place where customer service never has any consistency issues, that place is All Star Dodge near St. Louis. We don’t just want you to take our word for it, we want to share with you some conversations that we recently had with real customers who have shopped at All Star.
This is the most professional dealership that I have ever dealt with. I knew what I wanted before I arrived, and it was delivered with an efficiency that is rare. From start to finish, I was there only 1 hour. From the initial paperwork, to credit check, to financing, to out the door. All was handled professionally. I want to especially give a shot out to Mindy Pluma. Her personality was awesome. -Sheri
Mr. John Horrell offers customer support, advice and solutions in meeting the needs of a customer, like myself. My satisfaction and loyalty to this dealership is based on trust, professionalism, knowledgeable and attitude. -Sam
Customer services is #1 to me. This will be my fourth car from All Star. At first I was thinking about going to a different dealership, but my mind told me, “Why would you do that when Renell always takes care of you?” If something isn’t broke then why try and fix it? Start to finish he always listens on what I want. I will never think about going to another dealership. All Star is family and loyalty goes along way. You’re the best! -Monica

Ram 2500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Ballwin

We know that you won’t be able to get the 2020 Ram 2500 at All Star just yet, but you can get the 2018 Ram 2500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Ballwin today!
Pickups are tough, beastly things that have grown beyond all practical proportion in recent years; Ram’s offerings perhaps especially so. The new HD models are looking like they’ll go even farther. That’s a good thing for most truck buyers, however. Towing, hauling, and apparently dominating the road are all on the capabilities list for the newest member of Ram’s fold.
One powertrain you can bet will be in the new HD models will be a 6.4-liter V-8 with 410 hp and 429 lb-ft. This is the option that should appear in a new generation of Ram’s 2500 Power Wagon. And for diesel fans there will be the 6.7-liter turbocharged inline-6 from Cummins. This unit supplies a monster 930 lb-ft. With so much twist, you’ll be able to haul well over 30,000 pounds.
“Pickup trucks are huge sellers for the Detroit 3 automakers, so though won’t want to rock the boat when designing a new one. In the first 10 months of the year, the entire light truck market is up 5.2 percent, with Ram selling 374,901 pickups. Even with the new models just around the corner, current sales of Ram’s pickups are up 3.8 percent on the same period last year.”-motorauthority.com
Look for a debut of the 2020 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty in late 2018 or early the following year. They will be at All Star Dodge Ram sooner than you think!

Chrysler 300 at All Star Chrysler near North County
When you want a large sedan that is comfortable and stylish, you get the Chrysler 300C from All Star Chrysler near North County. The Chrysler 300 is a top rated sedan and people everywhere love it! Today we want to take a closer look at all that the Chrysler 300C has to offer.
If you’ve enjoyed driving large sedans in the past, the 300C will not disappoint. This is a bit of a throwback when compared to larger cars today. There is more cushion on the road; it may even be considered a bit floaty over some bumps. Relaxed driving is rewarded with a nearly silent ride that does a good job of coddling the driver and passengers. It’s a joy on longer trips when the luxury car comes out. If you push the 300C, it responds nicely but expect some lean in tighter, faster corners.
This 300C drives like a larger car, so getting used to parking in smaller spaces takes a few minutes. The rear visibility isn’t the best because the back window is rather small. Fortunately, the rear view camera and front and rear park assist pretty much park the car for you. The fuel economy for this large car is on par for this class. “I managed 23.4 mpg in my 340 miles of mixed driving, a tiny bit better than the 23 mpg on the sticker. This tester has the V-6 engine which does a decent job of moving the big Chrysler. There is an optional V-8 I recommend you look at if you plan to have a full car on most of your trips.”-wtop.com
For more information on the Chrysler 300C, head to All Star today. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff would be more than happy to take you on a test drive!
Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country
The Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country is a wonderful SUV that has a lot to offer its drivers and passengers. Today we want to share some information with you about the Jeep Patriot. After all, how can you love something if you don’t know about it?
In the U.S. the Patriot uses either the 2.0 L or 2.4 L gasoline I4 engine. Both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available. The Patriot features two four-wheel drive systems both of which are electronically controlled. The basic four-wheel drive system is called Freedom Drive I. This system is a full-time front-wheel-drive based 4WD/AWD system that is front-wheel-drive when it has traction, but can automatically put up to 20-30% power to the rear wheels, or can be locked in 50-50 below a certain speed. The other system, called Freedom Drive II, is based on Freedom Drive I, but by using the vehicle’s CVT transmission it is capable of a 19:1 gear reduction simulating a low range usually found in vehicles with dedicated transfer cases. The 2.4 L GEMA I4 is an option for the 4X2 model Patriot.
For Europe and Australia, a 2.0 L (1968 cc; 120 cid; 140ps) Volkswagen-manufactured diesel engine is fitted along with a 6-speed manual gearbox. All EU cars are fitted as standard with four wheel drive and a version of the Freedom Drive System that tuned differently from the U.S. versions, but with similar capability to FDII with brake traction control and three switchable electronic stability control and traction control settings for on or off-road use.
The Patriot won 2007 Green 4×4 Award and the 2008 4×4 of the Year in the UK. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and wikipedia.com.)

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Saint Charles
There are so many powerful and capable SUV models under the FCA umbrella that sometimes it can be hard to pick just one. Especially when you take into account just how man different trim options each SUV has to offer. Today we want to focus on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk edition.
“Dodge’s 707-hp Challenger and Charger Hellcat models are loud, instigate bad behavior, and can generate local, rubber-sourced cloud cover with merely a stab of their gas pedals. They’re the vehicular equivalents of a Daytona Beach spring-break hookup, the sort of ride that your dad might high-five you (behind Mom’s back) for buying. But what if there were a Hellcatted vehicle tame enough, relatively speaking, to bring home and introduce to Mother?”-caranddriver.com
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the third Fiat Chrysler vehicle to have the unhinged supercharged V-8 stuffed under its hood, and it’s the quiet Hellcat next door. Not literally, of course—have you heard a blown Hemi V-8 at full whack?—but with standard all-wheel drive mitigating the engine’s tire-spinning proclivities, plus its under-the-radar looks, the Trackhawk can at least pass for an upstanding citizen.
With more traction than any Hellcat yet, the Trackhawk has quite a lot of poke despite its pork—the engine adds 259 pounds over the already heavy 475-hp Grand Cherokee SRT. Nonetheless, Jeep claims it can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Per Jeep, the quarter-mile is expected to fly by in 11.6 seconds (at 116 mph!), and, with no electronic governor, the Trackhawk is said to surrender to atmospheric resistance at 180 mph.
