New Journey in 2019?

Dodge Journey at All Star Dodge Ram Jeep Chrysler near Glendale

The Dodge Journey has been around for a long time, and we are excited to announce that we will be getting a new generation in 2019! Though there are still a couple of years before this model shows up on the All Star Dodge Ram Jeep Chrysler dealership lot, we wanted to share with you some information on what we expect to see on the new Dodge Journey in 2019.

Automotive News reports that a new Journey will arrive for 2019 and it’ll be based on Alfa Romeo’s new rear-drive Giorgio platform. That’s the same platform that underpins the lovely—if mechanically troubled—Giulia sedanand the Stelvio SUV. Fiat Chrysler is expected base the next Dodge Charger and Challenger on this platform too. Automotive News is light on details in its report, but it says that the next Journey will remain a two-row crossover and that production will be shifted from Mexico to Italy.

“We’re curious to see what engines this new Journey will get. The Stelvio is currently offered with Alfa Romeo’s new 280-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder and its 505-hp 2.9-liter V6 in the high-performance Quadrifoglio. Going to a rear-wheel drive platform would be a welcome change of pace for the Journey. A Stelvio-based crossover is certainly more interesting than what we’ve got from Dodge now.”-roadandtrack.com

It will certainly be interesting to see what the final specs are on the 2019 Dodge Journey. In the mean time, we invite you to head to All Star Dodge Ram Jeep Chrysler near Glendale and take the current Dodge Journey out for a spin. You are sure to love this minivan and all of the many options and safety features that it has to offer. Get to All Star today and get shopping!

Let’s Talk Durango SRT

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge in Bridgeton

So you find yourself needing something powerful, sporty, and that can haul a number of people. If this is you, then you need to check out the new Dodge Durango SRT at All Star Dodge in Bridgeton. This powerful workhorse offers great agility and comfort all at the same time. Let’s take a deeper look at this powerful model.

Appropriately billed by Dodge as the Charger of SUVs, the Durango SRT starts with the brand’s naturally aspirated 6.4-liter V-8 found in various versions of the aforementioned Charger (as well as the Challenger). The 475-hp engine also boasts 470 lb-ft of torque and is capable of propelling the big brute to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. That’s just two ticks slower than the Challenger 392, which weighs in at a significantly lighter 4,240 lb. “It growls just as properly as it does in the Challenger when pushed, which is always good for a smile — or at least a satisfied smirk. Dodge says the Durango SRT’s eight-speed automatic, which distributes power to all four wheels via a standard all-wheel drive system that can send up to 70 percent of torque to the rear wheels, has been specifically calibrated for the vehicle. Shifts can reportedly be cracked off in as little as 160 milliseconds and there’s a satisfying WHOMP to each one when you have the hammer down.”-automobilemag.com

Its suspension is bolstered by Bilstein adaptive dampers, 3-percent stiffer front springs, 16 percent-stiffer rear springs, and an 18 percent-stiffer rear anti-roll bar. The effect is a surprisingly agile package on track that offers a smooth and comfortable ride on road with minimal NVH aside from the engine’s soundtrack.

You can get your Dodge Durango SRT at All Star Dodge today. What’s stopping you from getting the SUV you deserve?

Why is Auto Service So Important?

Service Center at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Louis

We all know we are supposed to properly maintain our auto vehicles, but what exactly does that mean, and why? Today we want to talk about why it is important to get all of your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler cars, trucks, and SUVs serviced at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Louis.

Regularly servicing your car can make the difference between it running smoothly and fuel efficiently, and the risk of it breaking down and incurring an expensive and unexpected repair. It can be a false economy to avoid regular car servicing, since expected wear and tear requiring minor maintenance, can fast become a costly major repair or replacement.

The service schedule for your vehicle will depend on the manufacturer and also depend on the car’s mileage and age.

“We have defined an Interim Service as having 35 main action points including, four changes and four top-ups. The changes include engine oil, oil filter and wheel nut torque (depending on the vehicle’s mileage and manufacturer specification). The dealership will also check and change the tire pressure and top up the clutch fluid, power steering reservoir, brake fluid level and windscreen washer if required.”-automyze.theaa.com

The dealership will also perform checks on other parts of the vehicle and if these parts need changing they will communicate this with you in advance of carrying out the work to make sure you are aware of what additional work is required and whether any further costs may be incurred.

If you have any questions on the kind of servicing done on at the All Star service center, just ask! Their friendly and factory trained technicians would love to answer any questions that you might have. Stop by the All Star service center today!

We think that the better choice is to buy all of your parts from the auto parts department at All Star Dodge near Saint Charles.

Used Car Inventory Specials Galore!

Inventory Specials at All Star Dodge Ram near Clayton

One thing that we absolutely love about All Star Dodge Ram near Clayton is not just their incredible selection of new cars, trucks, and SUVs, but their massive selection of used cars as well! All Star has such a vast selection of used cars that they even offer inventory specials each month on a wide variety of different cars, trucks, and SUVs! Not many dealerships go this above and beyond to offer these kinds of savings, but that’s just part of the All Star dealership! We want to share with you a tip on how to go about finding the right used car at All Star!

First and foremost, it is important to know what you can afford. “A rule of thumb: If you’re taking out a loan to pay for your car, your car payment shouldn’t be more than 20 percent of your take-home pay. If you’re sticking to a tight budget, you may want to spend even less. Used cars will need a little extra attention from time to time: new tires, maintenance and the like. And then there are the other ownership costs shoppers sometimes forget to account for, such as fuel and insurance. If the car you’re planning to buy is out of warranty, it might be a good idea to set aside a “just-in-case” fund to cover any unexpected repairs.”-edmunds.com

The inventory specials on the used cars at All Star are a great way to get the most band for your buck. You can get a wonderful used car at a fantastic price. The friendly and knowledgeable staff would be more than happy to help you get behind the wheel of a great used car from their inventory specials today!
