Patriot Replacement

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Mehlville

We have been saying for some time now that the Jeep Patriot would be going away, along with the Jeep Compass and be replaced with a single model. We thought this was going to happen last year, but as it turns out, it is shaping up to be this year that this new replacement model will make its debut. Today we want to talk about what the Jeep Patriot replacement will probably look like.

A small collection of fully camouflaged new compact Jeep crossover vehicles being trailered about somewhere in Europe. Known internally as the C-SUV (compact SUV) and nicknamed the Compatriot by the Jeep cognoscenti, the as-yet-unnamed compact vehicle is slated to replace both the Jeep Patriot and Compass. Even the swirly camo pattern can’t disguise the Jeep-ness of these vehicles: See the shape of the wheel openings, the kicked-up body line in front of the C-pillar, and the baby version of the Grand Cherokee fascia. The finished appearance of the twin exhaust tips and the way they are integrated into the rear skid plate and cosmetic bodywork indicates that the vehicle is nearly ready for prime time. Which is good, since the current Compass and Patriot have been around so long that many people have probably forgotten that they are still available.

“One big point of contention in the current pair is their subpar interior layout and materials. While these images don’t reveal much in that regard, we are at least glad to see the easy-to-use corporate dials and buttons in their familiar positions. A typical FCA screen for access to Uconnect functions resides in the center of the dash, and USB and 12-volt power ports are clearly visible in the console.” -caranddriver.com

Trailhawk Jeep Grand Cherokee is Off-Road Ready

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

It is no secret that Jeep Vehicles are some of the most off-road capable SUVs on the market today. It could be argued, quite successfully, that Jeep invented the SUV. (If you look at history, they did in order to help tackle the terrain of Europe during WWII.) Today we want to talk about the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk that has been labels the most off-road ready trim of the Jeep Grand Cherokee line.

The new Trailhawk becomes the sixth trim level of the Grand Cherokee series, joining Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit, and the hot rod SRT.

Prices for the Jeep midsize SUV start at $29,995 and range to $64,695. Two option packages and three standalone items took the bottom line from a base of $43,095 to an as-tested price of $50,220. (These are just list prices and may be different at the All Star Jeep Dealership.)

Trailhawk is the most off-road-ready of all Grand Cherokees. Sold only with four-wheel drive, Trailhawk’s roster of standard gear includes Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system with an electronic, limited-slip rear differential. Quadra-Drive includes selectable, low-range gearing.

The Selec-Terrain traction control system lets drivers choose from five driving conditions — sand, mud, auto, snow, and rock — each with coordinated settings for powertrain, suspension, and braking systems. Quadra-Lift air suspension is adapted for Trailhawk to provide increased suspension travel and improved articulation. Skid plates add protection for vital underbody components. Hill-ascent and hill-descent controls maintain a set, slow speed for traversing uphill/downhill grades, freeing the driver to concentrate on steering, without need to touch the pedals. Speed can be adjusted via steering wheel paddles. Unusually, hill-descent control can also be used in reverse. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and couriertimes.com.)

Dodge Ram – Ready for Their Close Up!

New Dodge Cars at All Star Dodge Ram near Fenton

We LOVE movies! We especially love movies about cars that feature Dodge Ram vehicles! One series of movies that really highlights the different models in the Dodge Ram lineup, many of which are available at All Star Dodge Ram near Fenton, is the Fast and the Furious movie series. The latest movie, Fast 8, which is set to be released soon, features several different models, which have been modified for the movie of course. (There is some speculation the the “ice” series of Dodge Ram vehicles will be available commercially, but we are not sure about that at this time.) Let’s take a look at the special Dodge Ram vehicles that are being featured in the up coming film.

What else could Dominic Toretto drive than a Dodge? The previous film showed a Charger fitted for off-road driving, and this time the classic shape has been formed into an ice racer. “The muscle car is still recognizable, but the altered wheelbase and fender flares make this something quite different. And as the bullet holes testify, the matte black machine is definitely going to see some action. To top it off, there are some tank-like machines: There’s a tracked Ripsaw for Tej Parker and an “Ice Ram” for Hobbs, who is played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.” – autoblog.com

We are sure that these incredible vehicles will be the stars of the upcoming film, as they often are in the Fast and the Furious films. You can check out the equally fast but not so furious Dodge Ram models featured in the film at All Star Dodge Ram. Talk with the team about how you can get a great Charger or Ram truck today! See you in the movies!

Charger Technology – Top Marks!

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge near North County

The Dodge Charger is one of those cars that is powerful and fun to drive. What people often fail to realize is that the Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge near North County, is also incredibly capable. So capable, in fact, that a lot of police departments across the country are beginning to use the special Dodge Charger Pursuit for their police force vehicles. Today we want to talk about what makes the Dodge Charger Pursuit just so very special.

The 2017 Charger Pursuit has eyes in the back of its head. Actually, those eyes are in the rear fascia because the car makes use of its rear park assist system and back-up camera to give the cops inside some secondary assistance. This isn’t for parking. It’s to make sure nobody is lurking behind the car waiting to ambush the officers.

If someone is behind the car, the rear sensors alert the officers in the cabin. A chime sounds, and the camera system activates to let the cops see what’s going on. Also, the doors automatically lock, the windows roll up, and the taillights flash. You can’t sneak up on the 2017 Charger Pursuit when this package is activated, and that is a great thing for officers idling in the field. “A system the rest of us use to make parking easier has been reworked to make officer’s lives safer. That’s a solid use of technology.”-motorauthority.com

While the Dodge Charger Pursuit is not commercially available for purchase, you can get the other Dodge Charger trims at All Star. Their team would love to take you on a test drive so that you can experience just how capable the Dodge Charger truly is. Drive it today!

 

Demon Challenger Coming!

Dodge Challenger at All Star Dodge near Kirkwood

We love the Dodge Challenger and its many trims. It is by far one of the most popular sports cars on the market, and we recently got word that the Challenger would be coming out with a Demon trim. Today we want to take a look at some of the features of this model. You can always get more information on this model at All Star Dodge near Kirkwood.

Performance Pages will be accessible through an 8.4-inch UConnect touchscreen infotainment system, and can bring up real-time graphs showing horsepower and torque; gauges for engine temperature, oil pressure, air-fuel ratio, and boost pressure; a g meter showing lateral and longitudinal g forces; and timers for reaction time, 0-60 mph, eighth mile, and quarter mile performance. Performance Pages will also feature driver-selectable line lock, rpm-adjustable launch control, and adjustability for the shift light in the gauge cluster. All of this data can be recorded so drivers can compare results and improve their technique or adjust for different track or weather conditions.

“An image of the Uconnect screen reveals the Demon will use a liquid-to-air intercooler just like the Hellcat. However, the Demon will get the first-ever factory application of an after-run chiller, which keeps the cooling fans and intercooler pump running after shutdown until it reaches a target temperature. Naturally, the Demon will also offer different drive modes, including Auto (Street), Drag, and Custom. Each mode has multiple tuning options, but Custom lets you mix and match performance attributes from Street and Drag.”-motortrend.com

For more information on the Dodge Challenger and the different trims that are offered, head to All Star. Their team would be more than happy to take you on a test drive and experience the power of the Dodge Challenger.

Think You Know the Dodge Grand Caravan

Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge near University City

The Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star Dodge near University City is one of the top selling minivans of all time. It is a great family vehicle that has a smooth ride and is fun to drive. Today we would like to take a look at some of the earlier versions of this model so that we can see just how far this model has come through the years.

The long wheelbase Grand Caravan was introduced in 1987. During the 1960s, Dodge did sell a small cargo van adapted for passenger use, called the Dodge A100 which was discontinued in 1970 and replaced by the larger, full-sized Dodge B-series van in 1971.

Beginning with model year 1987, all trim levels were also available in a long wheelbase variant, marketed as the Grand Caravan, which allowed more cargo space behind the rear seat. Interior trim, controls, and instrumentation were borrowed from the Chrysler K platform, and coupled with the lower floor enabled by the front-wheel-drive, the Caravan featured car-like ease of entry. There were three trim levels: base, SE, and LE.

Base vans came equipped for five passengers in two rows of seating. The LE came with seven passengers standard in three rows of seating. The base van had two bucket seats with attached armrests and open floor space between them in the front, a three-person bench seat in the second row. The seven-passenger came with two bucket seats with attached armrests and open floor space between them in the front, a two-person bench seat in the second row, and a three-person bench seat in the back row.

Do You Know How to Buy a New Chrysler?

New Chrysler Cars at All Star in Missouri

Just about anybody can buy a new Chrysler at All Star in Missouri, but do you know how to buy a new car? It is so much more than just picking out which vehicle you want to buy. There are a few more steps to take in the process to help you insure that you get the very best deal and the right vehicle for your driving lifestyle.

  1. Determine the type of vehicle you need. Once you’ve established the kind of vehicle that fits your lifestyle, it’s time to choose the model you want. Do your research on the Internet before going to a dealership. Talk to others who have the same kind of car – what do they like about it? What do they NOT like about it? How do the gas mileage and insurance cost compare to your current vehicle? Are there features you want your vehicle to have that are not available or come standard on another model? These are all things to consider when purchasing a new vehicle. Having a good idea of what you want is a good idea, but don’t “marry” yourself to just one. Keeping two or three options open will allow you flexibility if, for any reason, something goes wrong along the way.
  2. Just before visiting the dealership, you can usually check out their inventory online to make sure they have the vehicle of your choice in stock. If you head out, ready to buy, only to find out they don’t have one and you can’t even complete a test drive, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment from the start.

All Star has an amazing selection of new and used Chrysler Cars, stop by the dealership to check them all out!

Could Guaranteed Financing be Right for You?

Guaranteed Financing at All Star Dodge in MO

What do you do when you need a different car but maybe don’t have awesome credit? Do you settle for a sub par car with an astronomical interest rate, or do you go to a dealership that is looking out for you and wants to help you find a great car at a great price? The answer seems to be pretty easy, you go to the dealership that is willing to help you out. You head to All Star Dodge in MO and work with their finance team to attain guaranteed financing.

How does the Guaranteed Financing Program work?

We have lenders that work with individuals with a variety of credit issues. Depending on the extent of your credit issues, you may be required to have a cash down payment up front. The amount that you are allowed to borrow will depend on your credit application. To determine your qualifications, simply fill out a credit application and we will get back to you within minutes! The terms of the loan allowed for the annual percentage rate will vary depending on your credit history.

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.

For more information on the guaranteed financing program at All Star, contact their finance department. They would love to assist you in getting your credit back on track!

Perks of Certified Pre-Owned

Certified Pre-Owned Dodge Ram at All Star Dodge Ram near Illinois

When you are shopping for a new car, you have a lot of options. You can go new or used, but you can also do a little something in the middle. We are of course talking about certified pre- owned cars at All Star Dodge Ram near Illinois. Today we want to share with you some major benefits of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle at All Star.

The biggest benefit of choosing a certified pre-owned car over a standard used car is definitely the warranty coverage. It’s true that some used cars might have some of their factory warranty remaining, and that means you’re already covered by a warranty, even if something breaks. But certified pre-owned programs extend existing warranties, which gives you coverage for a longer term.

Another benefit of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle is that they tend to be better quality than a run-of-the-mill used car is. Dealers only issue certified pre-owned warranties after a comprehensive inspection that makes sure the car in question doesn’t have any serious defects or problems. If the car had serious problems, the manufacturer wouldn’t want the dealer to offer it with a warranty, because the automaker will likely end up losing money on the transaction. “Most automakers typically require that their certified pre-owned vehicles be free of any major accidents. Many car brands also insist that their CPO cars have reasonably new tires and brakes to ensure that the buyer doesn’t have to return to the dealer right away with potentially expensive issues.”-autotrader.com

For more information on the different certified pre owned cars at All Star, stop by the dealership and look at the many models that are included in their CPO specials. We are sure you will love a great CPO!
