All about the Jeep Patriot

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Arnold

The Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Arnold is an SUV that doesn’t like to toot its own horn, it likes to lay back and enjoy the ride. While the Patriot isn’t the most rough and tumble of the Jeep line up, like the Wrangler is, this model is still up for more than most SUV models. Let’s take a look at what the Jeep Patriot has to offer.

The Jeep Patriot is a compact crossover available in two main trim levels: Sport and Latitude. Both trims offer various subtrims. The Sport trim is sold in Sport SE and 75th Anniversary Edition subtrims, while Latitude buyers can choose the High Altitude subtrim. The base Sport provides 16-inch steel wheels, cruise control, a four-speaker sound system, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port. The Latitude adds heated mirrors, air-conditioning, power accessories, alloy wheels, a height-adjustable driver seat and heated front seats. Options include distinctive flip-down tailgate speakers, a rearview camera, a navigation system, a 6.5-inch touchscreen and roof rails.

The standard engine for front-wheel-drive models is a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 172 hp is optional on front-wheel-drive Patriots and is required on all Patriots that have four-wheel drive. All models come standard with a five-speed manual transmission, and models with the 2.0-liter engine are eligible for an optional continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Patriots with the 2.4-liter engine may be equipped with an optional six-speed automatic, and the sole exception here are models equipped with the Freedom Drive II off-road package.

It’s a Jeep Thing

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ladue

We have all heard the saying, “It’s a Jeep thing, you would’t understand.” We think that that phrase is a bit outdated, especially when you look at the Jeep Grand Cherokee that you can get at All Star Jeep Dealer Ladue. This Jeep model possess all of the power of an off-road Jeep, like the Wrangler, that we may not understand, but it also has loads of luxury and class both in the interior and exterior, and we think that everyone can understand that! Let’s take a brief at the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a big step away from the “It’s a Jeep thing, you wouldn’t understand” crowd –- it’s comfortable, it’s quiet and it’s stylish. You’ve probably seen your fair share of these if you live in a suburb or while picking your kids up from soccer practice, and there’s a reason: It does everything, and the Summit trim level does it with acres of leather and wood inside. The spacious rear passenger area is more than capable of hauling adults as comfortably as children, and the cargo area should be able to store all the generic athletic equipment or luggage thrown your way.

“The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 churns out a healthy 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. That power is then sent through an eight-speed automatic transmission that doesn’t shudder, jerk or do anything unexpected. Stepping up to a V8-powered Grand Cherokee will net you a better exhaust note and bragging rights, but power delivery is more than fine with the V6 under the hood. Automatic stop/start is standard, but it’s defeatable by pushing a button on the center stack.”-autoweek.com

Ram Trucks Changing the Game Since 1994

Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram near University City

It’s no secret that Ram has been changing the truck game up for a long, long time, but what you might not know is that Ram literally ‘broke all the rules’ for what a truck was back in 1994. What caused this catalyst? Was it because it was a simpler time? Was it because there was a popular tool man who grunted? We are not sure, all we know is that Ram thought it was time things changed for trucks.

Pickups are an ever-present, widely accepted member of the American landscape. But it didn’t use to be that way. Even in the 1980s, pickups were considered tools, not family transportation. Dodge’s second-generation of Ram pickups is largely credited as the catalyst that transformed the American pickup from a utilitarian workhorse to a friendly companion that wasn’t out-of-place in the mall parking lot. Both Ford and General Motors soon followed Dodge’s lead in making pickups focused more on people than cargo and low costs.

Over two decades ago, Dodge designers decided to add more creature comforts and convenience features to its pickup. How this change in design was the result of a designer at Chrysler’s brand new headquarters and technology center went to an area of the complex still under construction to take photos of the construction works’ pickups. “The design team studied the photos (Polaroids, no less) to see how loose items were stored inside the cabs. The research resulted in innovative storage solutions considered commonplace in modern trucks. Ram was also the first to offer a four-door extended cab, offering easier entry to the rear bench.”-topspeed.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!

Ram 1500 Sport Seeing Upgrades for 2018

Ram 1500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Creve Coeur

We are starting to get the first looks and read the first reviews on the 2018 Ram trucks and we are so excited. We recently got word that the 2018 Ram 1500 Sport would be getting some upgrades and we want to share with you what we know. Granted, right now it’s not much, but soon you will able to learn even more at All Star Dodge Ram near Creve Coeur.

Ram is continuing to slowly phase out its brand’s cross-hair grille, as the 2018 Ram 1500 Sport and Ram Heavy Duty pickups equipped with the Sport Appearance package adopt a variant of the snout found on the Laramie Longhorn, Limited, and the new-for-2018 Ram Limited Tungsten trims. As on those Ram trims, the 2018 Sport and Sport Appearance package’s body-color grille is distinguished by its pig-like nostrils and large “R-A-M” script and is paired with either black or chrome wheels and badges.

Ram isn’t abandoning its former face overnight, and the new-for-2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black continues to bear the cross-hair mug of Rams past. Looking much like the Ram 1500 Black Express that was introduced in 2013, the Big Horn Black features black paint, black wheels, black badges, and black headlight bezels. Unlike the lesser Ram 1500 Black Express, the 2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black features convenience items such as an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 7.0-inch gauge cluster display. (This information was compiled from caranddriver.com and dodge.com.)

We are so excited to see these updates and upgrades in person! Soon the new Ram 1500 models will be rolling into the All Star Dodge Ram dealership and you will be able to test drive the 2018 models! Start by taking a look at the 2017 Ram 1500 models to get a good idea of what the 2018 models will be like!

Get ’em While They’re Hot!

New Cars at All Star Dodge Ram in Bridgeton

Some of the hottest cars on the market are the ones that you find at All Star Dodge Ram in Bridgeton. All Star is a full service dealership that sells all of the wonderful vehicles in the Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler line ups. We know that you will want to get these new cars while they are hot, so we have a couple of reasons that will show you that new is the way to go!

The Features You Want: When you buy a used car, you get the state of the art — of the year of the used car. Every model year, manufacturers add and adopt technologies and features to vehicles, either as standard or optional equipment, as a way to lure buyers to new cars. Those technologies may be safety breakthroughs or they may just be convenience gadgets. The only way to get the most advanced technology and the latest convenience features is with a new vehicle. Automotive electronics are evolving so rapidly that unless you buy a new car, your vehicle’s technology is already outdated.

Better Financing Rates: “While a used car may initially cost less than a new one, the interest rate you pay likely will be higher. To begin with, you wouldn’t get the low-interest financing or cash rebate that usually is offered as an incentive to new-car buyers. Furthermore, financial institutions generally charge a higher rate of interest on loans for used cars — usually a full percentage point or two.”-cars.com

Take advantage of All Star’s full lot of lovely new cars. Their team will help you find the right Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, or Ram model that will perfectly suit your driving lifestyle and the features that you want in a new car!

Let’s Talk 2018 Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

When you want an SUV that does double duty – great for week day driving and great for fun weekend off-roading – you go to the Jeep line up of vehicles. Each different Jeep has something different to offer, so it is easy to find the Jeep that best suits what you want and need. Today we want to take a look at what we see coming for the Jeep Cherokee in 2018.

We recently got a chance to take a look at the most recent spy shots and this is what we are thinking. We expect the current model’s separated daytime running lights and main projectors to be combined into a single unit, like on the rest of the Jeep lineup. The prototype, though heavily camouflaged, appears to signal that the new lights will flank the grille in a more conventional fashion.

It’s not clear if there will be any major mechanical mods, though it’s possible we’ll see the 9-speed automatic already offered on the smaller Renegade and Compass models make it over.

“We’ve also heard that the Cherokee might receive a high-performance Trackhawk option as part of the facelift. The rumored engine is a tuned version of the 3.2-liter V-6 already available on the Cherokee. In standard form the engine delivers 271 horsepower. Below it is a 2.4-liter inline-4 good for 184 hp. Finally, expect a more accomplished suite of electronic driver aids. Early test mules were spotted wearing numerous sensors front and rear.”-motorauthority.com

We expect to see this model at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant later this year. To learn more about the Cherokee and the Jeep line up of SUV models, head to All Star and talk with a member of their team. The friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to help you!
