Are Inventory Specials a Great Deal?

Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge near St. Peters

When you are shopping for a new car, you will notice that there are a bunch of different options available to you. Some options will save you a lot of money, some, not so much. However, if you take advantage of the new car inventory specials at All Star Dodge near St. Peters, you are sure to get a great price on your next new car.

You might be wondering if inventory specials are really that great of a deal. The short answer is yes! The long answer is that these new cars that are part of the inventory specials are drastically discounted. This discount happens for a number of reasons. One reason is that the manufacturer is discounting the model in an effort to get more people driving that specific vehicle. For example, if a new model has been introduced, you might be able to get a great deal if the manufacturer is looking to raise brand awareness. Another reason that a specific vehicle could be discounted is because the dealership has too many of them on the lot. Sometimes, a dealer will order a bunch of a specific model, thinking that they will be able to sell them, and they don’t. This means a surplus of a specific vehicle that the dealer needs to move off of their lot to make room for other models. This is a simple case of supply and demand. It might also be that the dealership just wants to offer you a great deal! All Star is cool like that!

We invite you to head to All Star and walk their lot to see what all new cars on currently on special. Their team will help you find the right model for you!

The Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Mehlville is one of the top selling SUV models on the market today. It is known for its drive-ability and immense comfort. Today we want to take a look at how the Durango started.

“Entering the sport utility vehicle market in 1998, Dodge Durango debuted as a competitor to the popular Ford Explorer and the Toyota 4Runner. With the optional forward-facing third row seat, the 1998 Dodge Durango could accommodate up to seven occupants.”-nadaguides.com

Standard engine power of the sport utility vehicle came from a 5.2-liter Magnum V-8 powerplant while a 5.9-liter was presented as an option. All Dodge Durango’s built during the first production year were equipped with four-wheel drive while an option of a part-time or full-time transfer case was available. For the 1999 model year, a more affordable two-wheel drive version was offered with the Durango as was a 3.9-liter Magnum V-6 engine as an alternative to eight-cylinder power.

In 2004, the Dodge Durango received a major update that resulted in the sport utility growing in proportions. The wheelbase of the 2004 Durango was three inches longer than its predecessor and was 4.3 inches taller. Increased exterior dimensions reflected in a larger interior space for additional passenger and cargo room. Base power was sourced from a 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter PowerTech V-6. Eight-cylinder propulsion from the Dodge Durango was derived either from a 4.7-liter PowerTech V-8 or from an all-new 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 producing 335 horsepower. In 2006, the HEMI V-8 engine added Multi-Displacement System allowing better fuel management. The convenience equipment on the Dodge Durango was also upgraded in 2004 with satellite radio, automatic temperature control air conditioning and Uconnect hands-free communication with Bluetooth offered for the first time. Briefly in 2009, the Dodge Durango was offered as a hybrid vehicle using a two-mode transmission.

Dodge Parts? More Please!

Dodge Parts at All Star Dodge near Town and Country

It is absolutely no secret that we LOVE Dodge Ram vehicles and one of their great dealers, All Star Dodge near Town and Country. It is also no secret that we love the Dodge parts at All Star as well. In the beginning, before the Dodge brothers built their first car, they were a huge manufacturer of auto parts. The Dodge brothers gained such notoriety for their quality of parts that Mr. Olds, you might know him from Oldsmobile, decided to make the Dodge brothers the primary manufacturers of their engine parts. However, Oldsmobile was not the only auto maker who wanted to get Dodge parts in their cars.

On February 23, 1903 the Dodge brothers formally agreed to supply Henry Ford with 650 chassis (including engines, transmissions, and axles) for $250 each, thus beginning a profitable relationship between the two firms. This contract kept the 150 men at the Hastings Street plant fully occupied and the Dodges began working exclusively for Ford. He built a plant on Mack Avenue to assemble cars from parts made elsewhere, the entire operation dependent upon extensive credit from his parts suppliers. In return for an investment of $10,000 ($7,000 in materials and a $3,000 bank note), the Dodge brothers accepted 100 shares (one-tenth of the total) in the Ford Motor Company., newly-incorporated on June 16, 1903. Dodge delivered the first shipment of chassis to Mack Avenue in July via horse-drawn hayracks and the Ford Motor Company assembled its first cars. (Part of this information was compiled from dodgemotorcar.com). It is not uncommon to find Dodge parts in old Ford models.

Dodge Ram Used Cars – Perfect for Long Term

Used Cars at All Star Dodge Ram in MIssouri

It is widely known that Dodge has been innovator in the auto industry since the early days, as in the early days of the car itself. It is this long legacy that makes each Dodge Ram model such a great vehicle. They are built to last. This means that when you decided to by a Used Car from All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri, you are getting a vehicle that will last you a long time. We want to share with you a little bit about the Dodge brothers that started this long lasting legacy.

The Dodge Brothers were skilled machinists from a modest background. John Francis Dodge and Horace Elgin Dodge were two of the three children of Daniel Rug and Maria Dodge of Niles, Michigan. They attended public schools, but learned the machinist’s trade from their father, who ran a shop specializing in internal combustion engines for marine use. The inseparable brothers built the first bicycle in Niles.

Horace Dodge invented a four-point, dirt proof, adjustable bicycle ball bearing and in 1897 the two brothers established the Evans & Dodge Bicycle Company with Fred S. Evans and leased the Typograph Company plant for two years. In 1900, they sold their interests, returned to Detroit, and established a machine shop in the Boydell Building on Beaubien Street at Lafayette. They began with only twelve employees, but quickly established a reputation for excellent workmanship. Ransom E. Olds erected the first automobile plant in Detroit in 1899 and by early 1901 the Dodge machine shop supplied him with engines. Olds followed with an order for 3,000 transmissions in 1902, making the Dodge brothers one of the largest parts suppliers for the nascent Detroit automobile industry.(Some of this information was compiled from dodgemotors.com). The Dodge brothers grew their knowledge from a small bike shop to a manufacturing empire.

Charging from the Past

Dodge Charger at All Star Dodge near Ballwin

The Dodge Charger at All Star near Ballwin is an iconic piece of American history. It was introduced at the beginning of the golden age of muscle cars and was well loved. For a time, the Dodge Charger was not in production, but in the mid-2000’s Dodge brought the Charger out of retirement and back into the spotlight. We want to go back and learn about the start of the Dodge Charger.

“Dodge was in desperate need of a car that appealed to anyone under the age of 80, and the way to do that quickly was to develop a fastback version of its Coronet midsize car. That car appeared in the fall of 1965 as the 1966 Charger.”-edmonds.com

Except for the two-door fastback roof and some unique trim, the Charger was every inch a Coronet. That meant it was a simple unibody structure with an unequal length control arm front suspension that used torsion bars as a springing medium and a solid rear axle on semielliptical leaf springs in the back.

And “every inch a Coronet” also meant that the Charger was pretty big. At 203.6 inches long it was a full 22 inches longer than a ’66 Mustang and 3.5 inches longer than the four-door 2K6 Charger. The first Charger’s 117-inch wheelbase was relatively long for the era in which it was designed, though it seems modest by 21st-century standards when engineers try to shove the wheels out to a car’s corners (the 2K6 Charger’s wheelbase is 120 inches).¬†While the styling of the Charger’s front clip was similar to that of the Coronet’s, there was a full-width convex grille in front with hidden headlights that gave the car a unique look.
