Wanna Know What We Saw on the Cherokee???

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois

It’s officially spy shot season and we are so pumped! What is spy shot season you ask? It’s that wonderful time of the year in which auto manufacturers start testing out the next year’s models and we get images of the ‘mules’! ‘Mules’ are what the covered bodies of the next year’s models are called. They are usually nondescript to keep those of us who watch for them, in suspense. Let’s talk about the spy shots we recently looked at for the 2018 Jeep Cherokee that you will soon be able to get at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois.

The heavily disguised prototype has the nose and tail completely covered, and an undisguised mule with the current body shows what appear to be new radar sensors. Based on these spy shots, it looks like the Cherokee’s current split headlight design could be disappearing.

“We know there must be a significant redesign to the front considering how much camouflage is used. We can also just make out a revised accent light in a similar position as the current accent lights. This wouldn’t indicate unified headlights alone, but two of the exposed mule’s apparent radar sensors sit right where the square-shaped main headlamps are located on the current model. They’ll have to at least move those lights higher in the bumper for the sensors, and if they’re moved that far up, they might as well be merged with the accent lights.”-autoblog.com

For more information on the current Jeep Cherokee and the 2018 model, talk to a member of the All Star staff. They would love to share with you their passion for this wonderful Jeep vehicle. Head to All Star and test drive the Cherokee today!

Let’s Talk Safety!

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton

When you are shopping for a Chrysler 200, you are sure to wonder what the safety features might look like on the top models. Today we want to take a look at the different safety features offered on the Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton.

The Chrysler 200 comes standard with traction and stability control, antilock brakes, front side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. A rearview camera is optional on the base LX and standard on other trims. The Driver Assist package, available only on the Limited Platinum, adds a blind-spot warning system and rear cross-traffic alert. The SafetyTec package, available only on the 200C Platinum, includes forward collision warning, brake assistance, blind-spot and lane departure warning, rear-cross traffic alert, along with adaptive cruise control, automatic wipers, and an automated parallel and perpendicular parking system.

In government crash tests, the 200 received a full five stars for overall protection, with five stars awarded for both front- and side-impact protection. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash testing, the 200 earned the top score of Good in the moderate-overlap front-impact, small-overlap front-impact, side-impact, roof strength and head restraint (whiplash protection) tests. Also in IIHS testing, the effectiveness of the 200’s optional frontal collision warning and automatic braking systems earned a top rating of Superior. IIHS also named the 200 a Top Safety Pick+. (This information was compiled from edmunds.com and chrysler.com.)

“During Edmunds testing, a 200S AWD came to a stop from 60 mph in 119 feet, a bit better than average for this segment. However, a four-cylinder 200 Limited required a longer 129 feet.”-edmunds.com

Jeep Compass New for 2018!

Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

It is a beautiful day in the St. Louis area! This cooler temperatures are delightful and we are loving it – It’s giving us a great opportunity to check out the inventory of Jeep vehicles on the All Star Jeep Dealer lot near Florissant. While we love all the different models in the Jeep lineup, today we want to focus on the great changes that we see coming for the Jeep Compass in 2018.

The new Jeep Compass is a continuation of the original concept — a tough-bodied, compact crossover with one model engineered for off-roading and three for bad weather, all in a Grand Cherokee-style skin. It carries the Chrysler “Tigershark” 2.4 liter engine, with manual and automatic transmissions, with a two-liter turbo four supposedly a year or three off.

“Power ratings are 180 hp at 6,400 rpm and 175 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm, and a peak towing capacity of 2,000 lb (with tow package and AWD only). Electronic stop-start comes with both automatic transmissions, and includes a secondary battery and upgraded components. The engine has coil-on-plug ignition with dual plugs, and an automatic tensioner on the single-belt accessory drive.”-allpar.com

There is just one engine, with three different transmissions. A Fiat six-speed manual is standard on the Sport and Latitude, with FWD or AWD; a six-speed Aisin is optional with FWD. All wheel drive Compasses can be ordered with the optional nine speed automatic (not a six speed automatic); the Trailhawk is nine-speed only.

Take advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and check out the different Jeep models at All Star. The team at All Star would be happy to take you on a test drive of the current Jeep Compass and share with you all of the amazing features that it has to offer.

Ram Trucks Getting Sporty

New Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters

It’s no secret that Ram trucks are incredibly powerful and delightful to ride in. We are really excited to report that for 2018, it looks like the Ram line up of trucks is getting a little more sporty. We want to explore that new sporty look here today.

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.

The cross-hair grille design can be traced back to the 1986 Dodge Ram. Now that Ram is no longer a part of the Dodge brand, it’s not surprising the relatively young truck brand is trying to separate itself from its Dodge brand mates that also use the cross-hair grille.

“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.”-caranddriver.com

Head to All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters to learn more about the Ram truck line up and to learn more about the changes that we expect to see for the next model year. The 2018 Ram trucks should be at All Star later this year!

The Ram 1500, Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s half-ton full-size pickup, receives a few changes though several models add standard equipment.

The price rises accordingly: the two-wheel- drive Rebel increases $1,725 to $46,315 and the four-wheel-drive version is $1,895 more expensive at $48,415 (all prices include destination double check with the team at All Star for the most accurate price).

The regular cab is available with a 6.4- or 8-foot bed, the Quad Cab with the 6.4-foot bed and the crew cab with a 5.7- or 6.4-foot bed. Engine choices include a base 3.6-liter gas V-6, a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 and a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.

FCA Going Electric

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near O’Fallon

It is no secret that electric vehicles are leading the way into the future. We are seeing a bigger shift towards electric vehicles from all auto manufacturers, but one that we are particularly interested is FCA. Today we want to take a look at their shift towards electric cars.

There’s nothing that will prevent an OEM from engaging in the type of development work that Tesla has done so far. We have been—as you well know, we have been reluctant to embrace that avenue until we saw a clear—a path forward.

I think we’re now in a position to acknowledge at least one of our brands and in particular Maserati will, when it completes the development of its next two models effectively switch all of its portfolio to electrification.

And as these products come up for renewal post 2019, it will start launching vehicles, which are all electric and which will embody, I think, what we consider to be state-of-the-art technology.

The Fiat 500e electric car, while popular for its low prices and nippy handling, remains a compliance car sold only in California, and has had no significant upgrades in the six years since its launch in 2012.

“Much of the powertrain and battery technology for that vehicle was developed by parts supplier Bosch, working together with the Chrysler engineers. FCA’s next plug-in vehicle, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan, only started deliveries this year, though it has received excellent reviews despite a recall for a faulty part that has temporarily halted production.”-greencarreports.com

For more information on the different electric and hybrid options available, talk to the team at All Star Chrysler near O’Fallon. They would be more than happy to assist you in getting a great hybrid vehicle.

Chrysler Through the Years

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near Fenton

Chrysler has been around for a long time and the team at All Star Chrysler near Fenton is proud to be a part of the long tradition. Today we want to take a look at some of the early accomplishments of the Chrysler corporation. You can always check out the latest Chrysler Cars at All Star today!

Walter P. Chrysler joined the Maxwell Motors Company in 1920 and five years later the company was reintroduced as Chrysler Corporation with their flagship car, the Chrysler six. The 1924 Chrysler Six, an all-new car priced at $1,565 that featured two significant innovations – a light, powerful, high-compression six-cylinder engine and the first time four-wheel hydraulic brakes were standard on a passenger car. The well-equipped Chrysler Six also featured aluminum pistons, replaceable oil and air filters, full-pressure lubrication, tubular front axles, shock absorbers and indirect interior lighting.

Within a decade of its founding, Chrysler Corporation’s leadership in innovation had earned for it the label of Detroit’s “engineering company.” Chrysler’s list of early automotive “firsts” included Floating Power (a new method of mounting engines to isolate vibration), replaceable oil filters, downdraft carburetors and one-piece curved windshields.

“Chrysler entered a higher level of competition with its richly appointed Imperial series. With a custom-built body from LeBaron or Briggs, a 145-inch-wheelbase chassis, a 125-horsepower engine and a price tag of $3,145, a typical Imperial of the early 1930s rivaled a Duesenberg in style, but cost only about a third as much!”-chrysler.com

While Chrysler is now a part of a larger overall company, FCA, they have not lost sight of where they came from. Become part of the Chrysler legacy when you purchase one of the many Chrysler Cars at All Star. Join the nearly hundred year history!

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!
