Big Plans at Chrysler

New Chrysler Cars at All Star in Bridgeton

Chrysler is making some big moves in 2017. Probably the biggest move is that Chrysler is making is the Pacifica. Chrysler has begun making a SUV and minivan super vehicle, known as the Chrysler Pacifica. We are going to take a look at this impressive crossover.

A minivan may be a box, but the Pacifica is undeniably a good-looking box. Wider and with a more aggressive stance than the Town & Country, it presents a crisp, sleek profile and is arguably the best-looking minivan on the market. As before, the sliding-door tracks are tucked away under the rear windows, further smoothing the look. And its shape also makes the Pacifica the most aerodynamic minivan, according to Chrysler, which improves fuel economy. It lets the Odyssey contend for best-in-class highway mileage at 28 mpg, and the Pacifica does that with 39 more ponies. The Pacifica overachieved its highway rating with an impressive 31 mpg on our real-world highway fuel-economy test, performed at a steady 75 mph.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is about the only piece of the Pacifica that is not new, but it has been tweaked for greater power and fuel economy. Good for 287 horsepower and paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, it delivered a 7.3-second zero-to-60-mph time—quicker by a few tenths than its closest competitors.

“A plug-in-hybrid version is promised later this year. It will pair the V-6 with an electric motor, fed by batteries tucked into the compartments that are reserved for folding second-row seats in gasoline-powered versions. Chrysler claims the hybrid will be able to travel up to 30 miles on electric power alone before the V-6 kicks in and will deliver 80 MPGe in the city.”-caranddriver.com

More Horsepower on the Durango SRT

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Florissant

The Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Florissant is an incredibly popular SUV that handles like a dream. For the 2018 year, FCA, the company that owns and manufacturers the Dodge Durango, decided that the SRT model needed more power. Let’s take a look at the more powerful Durango SRT.

The new high-performance vehicle for the Durango nameplate is due out this summer, said Tim Kuniskis, head of Dodge and SRT for FCA North America.

“This now takes everything that was great about the Durango and everything that was awesome about the Charger SRT and combines it into one badass SUV,” he said.

The Durango SRT is powered by the 392-cubic-inch, 6.4-liter V-8 Hemi engine, cranking out 475 horsepower and 470 foot-pounds of torque. It’s mated to an automatic eight-speed transmission and is outfitted with full-time all-wheel drive. The SUV is said to trip the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds, and go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds.

Dodge updated the the SRT Durango with an aggressive look, upgraded the interior and put a T-shaped electronic shifter inside it instead of a rotary knob, Kuniskis said. It also features updated ride dynamics and shift feel. The exhaust was tuned to sound like the 392 Charger, said Pete Jacobsen, Dodge Durango vehicle development manager.

While it boasts performance, the Durango SRT also will be used as a family-hauling daily driver, Kuniskis said. The interior features driver and family comforts such as a hand-wrapped instrument panel, flat-bottom performance steering wheel with paddle shifters, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated second-row captain’s chairs. The Durango SRT also can tow more than any other three-row SUV and is capable of hauling 8,600 pounds, according to Dodge.

How Does Car Service Work?

Service at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Louis

It would seem that getting your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, or Chrysler serviced at All Star near St. Louis is really easy, and for the customer it is, but there are actually a lot of things happening to make sure that you have a great experience and to ensure that your vehicle gets the servicing it needs. Today we want to take a quick look at the processes that take place to ensure a quality repair.

While every dealership is a little different, most processes are the same. When a customer first pulls into a dealership’s service drive, they are greeted either by a service consultant or a porter who will direct them to an available service consultant.

The service consultant then will ask what the customer needs help with, and write up a repair order describing the work to be performed. Once that’s done, the customer signs the repair order–which often has an estimate of the repair costs on it–and heads to the waiting area or gets a ride home or a loaner vehicle, if the car will be in the shop for a while.

Once the repair order, or R.O., is complete, the service advisor will either hand it to a dispatcher, who will assign the work to a technician, or if the dealership does not use a dispatcher, the advisor will assign the work directly.

Once this is done, the technician brings the car to his or her work bay, and begins working. In most cases, whether performing an oil change or major repair work, the technician will need to order parts for the job. Sometimes these parts come from the dealership’s own parts department. Then the repairs begin.

For more information on how the service department works, stop by All Star today!

Parts! Parts! Parts!

Parts at All Star Dealership near Saint Charles

We are often asked if people should take their Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler cars to the All Star Dealership near Saint Charles for servicing, or if they can just take their vehicles to an independently owned shop. We believe that dealership service is the best service, and we would like to tell you why, today.

Advanced Training – In order to maintain their franchises dealerships must pay for training their technicians and providing special tools and equipment. Dealers also have access to proprietary information, information on new vehicles they sell and service. This means that no one else can access this information, which is often necessary for diagnosis and repair. In addition, dealership service departments work mainly on the makes and models that they sell. Since they are very familiar with the particular car line, they can usually pinpoint a problem more quickly and more accurately. The faster they can figure the problem out, the faster they can work to correct it, and the faster you get your car back. This also can mean big savings since the technicians are able to correct the problem faster – less time on repairs means less money out of your wallet.

It used to be that a dealership’s hourly rates were higher than the independent shops because of overhead, cost of tools, and training. However, this isn’t the case any more. Car technologies are advancing so quickly that the independent shops are incurring a lot more costs just trying to keep up with the technology, the need for ongoing training and the purchase of new equipment and tools. The dealerships can keep up and be ahead of the changes because they represent the company that is making the changes.

Have all your Dodge Cars serviced by the All Star Parts and Service Department!

Feel the Power of the Grand Cherokee!

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton

It is common knowledge that Jeep makes amazing SUVs. They are capable and responsive, while being comfortable to sit in and drive. It turns out that Jeep has now been named the most powerful SUV on the market, thanks to the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What makes the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton so powerful? – Let’s take a look.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk borrows the 707 horsepower supercharged V8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats. This is the first time that the 6.2-liter supercharged motor has been paired with an all-wheel-drive system, which has been strengthened to handle its 645 lb-ft of brute force torque.

Though the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is not designed for off-roading (unless you count race tracks as off-road,) the Trackhawk comes equipped with a computer-controlled Bilstein adaptive suspension system and five performance modes (Normal, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow) that tweak the ride stiffness, steering, 8-speed automatic transmission, AWD, limited-slip rear differential, etc., to suit the occasion. This different performance modes allow the driver to have maximum control over the engine and the driving experience.

“The Trackhawk’s tow rating is 7,200 pounds, but you’re probably more interested in the other way it hauls. Jeep says it will do 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds on the way to a 180 mph top speed. Thanks to the Trackhawk’s vented hood and front fascia help cool the engine and reduce aerodynamic lift at speed, and a set of 15.75-inch Brembo front brakes – the largest ever fitted to a Jeep — slow the 5,363-pound beast down when you’re done with the fun.”-foxnews.com
