Is Buying New the Right Choice for Me?

New Cars at All Star Dodge near North County

You find yourself in the situation where you need a different car; maybe you were in an accident, you drove your current vehicle until it finally died, or you want to upgrade. Whatever your reason for needing a different car, you are probably trying to decide whether you want to buy a new car or a used car from All Star Dodge near North County. We want to share with you some of reasons why you might want to buy a new car.

When you buy a new car, you’re the boss. You can consider a wide variety of vehicles in the size and price class you want. You can test-drive them all. You can select your favorite color. You can equip it with whatever features you need and want. You can choose between leather and cloth upholstery. You can upgrade the audio system. You can add high-tech gizmos such as a communication, entertainment or navigation system.

“If you don’t find what you want in a showroom, on a dealer’s lot or online, a dealer can special-order a new car to your precise specifications. Before you order a vehicle, ask the dealer to search available databases to see if the car you want already exists in another dealer’s inventory. Dealers frequently trade vehicles to satisfy a customer and a dealer will often outright buy the vehicle from another dealer to make a customer happy.”-cars.com

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. When you do the math, a used car may end up costing you more than a new car in the long run.

Head to All Star and take a look at their amazing new car inventory!

First, slight variations in color occur and matching these variations can be tricky.

Rumors About the Dodge Journey

Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge near Illinois

The Dodge Journey has been a key part of the Dodge line up for a number of years now. It is incredibly family friendly, fun to drive, and remarkably capable. There have been rumors that the Dodge Journey would be getting a redesign for this year, but as it turns out, we probably won’t be seeing that redesign until 2019. Today we want to take a look at some of the changes that we might be seeing on the Journey when the redesign comes out. You can always check out the current technology and characteristics on the Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge near Illinois.

Dodge will borrow the Giulia’s rear-wheel drive architecture from sister company Alfa Romeo. The next Journey will consequently be more dynamic to drive than the current model, which is front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive will be offered at an extra cost for buyers who frequently tackle adverse weather conditions.

It’s reasonable to assume that the next Journey will use a 2.0-liter turbo four. Rated at about 300 horsepower, the mill will be inaugurated next year by the fourth-generation Wrangler, and it will trickle down to other members of the Fiat-Chrysler family such as the Dodge Charger. The four will be bolted to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

“Whether we’ll see a V6 in the next Journey is up in the air at this point. Buyers in Europe will be able to order the crossover — which is known as the Fiat Freemont locally — with a turbodiesel engine that we won’t get on this side of the pond.”-digitaltrends.com

Dodge Durango is the Right Size

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Florissant

Lately it would seem as though certain governmental agencies would like for us to drive around in tiny little clown cars. They claim they are better for the environment and so one. The problem that we see is that many people just do not fit in those tiny little cars. If you are more than five feet and five inches tall and weight more than one hundred and fifty pounds just are not going to ride very comfortably in this clown cars. If you do not fit the above classifications, or just want more room for your family, then you need to check out the Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Florissant.

The Dodge Durango is a roomy SUV that is built to accommodate its driver and passengers comfortably. It also has a powerful engine that is capable of any road trip. The Dodge Durango is powered by a 293-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 or a 360-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Base SXT and volume-leader GT models get the V-6; sporty R/T and premium Citadel models get the V-8. All models come with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive but there are important differences: SXT and GT models get a single-speed, full-time system that lacks a low range, something addressed by the two-speed, active-on-demand system on R/T and Citadel trims. This means if you need a low range for off-road duties, you have to opt for a V-8. (Compiled from dodge.com and detroitnews.com)

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.
