New Jeep Grand Cherokee Coming!

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near North County

We have a secret, but we have got to tell someone, so we are going to tell you! The Jeep Grand Cherokee is getting a new trim for the 2018 model year! Coming soon to All Star Jeep Dealer near North County, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk!

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the third Fiat Chrysler vehicle to have the unhinged supercharged V-8 stuffed under its hood, and it’s the quiet Hellcat next door. Not literally, of course—have you heard a blown Hemi V-8 at full whack?—but with standard all-wheel drive mitigating the engine’s tire-spinning proclivities, plus its under-the-radar looks, the Trackhawk can at least pass for an upstanding citizen.

With more traction than any Hellcat yet, the Trackhawk has quite a lot of poke despite its pork—the engine adds 259 pounds over the already heavy 475-hp Grand Cherokee SRT. Nonetheless, Jeep claims it can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. “That time is on par with the nearly 1000-pounds-lighter, automatic-equipped Dodge Hellcats we’ve tested. (The quickest was the Charger, which reached 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.) Per Jeep, the quarter-mile is expected to fly by in 11.6 seconds (at 116 mph!), and, with no electronic governor, the Trackhawk is said to surrender to atmospheric resistance at 180 mph.”-caranddriver.com

The supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 is mostly left alone otherwise, right down to its forged pistons, sodium-filled exhaust valves, heavy-duty bearings, and blower pushing as much as 11.6 psi. Exhaust-routing complications reduce peak torque by a negligible 5 lb-ft, to 645. To keep the Hellcat from lunching the Trackhawk’s driveline, Jeep fortifies the eight-speed automatic transmission, fits forged chain sprockets and a wider chain in the transfer case, beefs up the rear driveshaft and half-shafts, and tweaks the rear differential. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and caranddriver.com.)

Are Manufacturer Parts Important?

Manufacturer Parts at All Star Dodge near Arnold

We get asked this question all of the time, “Are manufacturer parts important?” The short answer is that yes, buying manufacturer parts are important. These are the parts that were designed specifically for your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler vehicles. They will keep your cars, trucks, and SUVs running as they should. Today we want to share with you what some of the other kinds of auto parts are out there, and why you should NOT get those other parts. You can get all of your genuine auto parts at All Star Dodge near Arnold.

Rebuilt or Remanufactured – A rebuilt or remanufactured part is essentially a used component that was completely taken apart and fitted with new parts. It is then tested to ensure it performs as well as a new part.

Aftermarket – Aftermarket parts are made by a company other than the original manufacturer.  These parts are made to fit and perform as well as, but in many cases, not as well as the original.

Refurbished or Reconditioned – Refurbished or reconditioned parts are used parts that have been cleaned and maybe a few external components replaced like nuts and bolts or gaskets. These are very inexpensive compared to new parts, for a reason.  However, they are used parts and do have some level of wear.

Used or Recycled – Recycled is just the new term for a used part. A used part is an alternative when your car is older or has very high miles. They are also very good choices for parts that don’t wear such as door handles, trim, glass, moldings or body parts. Used parts are the least expensive you can buy but they do have some level of wear already and will not last as long as a new or rebuilt part. Sometimes these parts are the only option if you are restoring a classic Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, or Jeep model.

It’s Going to be a Great Year!

All Star Dodge Ram near University City

Well, it is officially 2017! Happy new year to all of our readers! How has everyone done with their new year’s resolutions so far? It is only day one after all! Have you been able to keep your resolution these few short hours, or are you like so many of us who have already broken their resolutions. Maybe you are someone who does not make resolutions at all. Maybe you see, like we do, that resolutions are simple commitments that can easily be broken, really that they are made to be broken. Today we want to talk about the resolution that All Star near University City did not make this year,

A lot of dealerships make a big deal about their resolution to “better serve their customers”. This makes us wonder, how had they been treating their customers before? It has been our experience that past behavior is a good predictor of future behavior. Don’t get us wrong, serving your customers is very important, but to make that your resolution, seems a little weak. At All Star, the staff have always been of the belief that you provide superior service each and every time that a customer walks through the door. That this is the only way to ensure that customer continually return to the dealership. So, All Star has decided not to make a resolution, but to instead, do as they have always done and provide the very best service to each and every customer that comes to their dealership. If you are good at something, why change it?

For more information on the different Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler vehicles that can be found at All Star, just stop by the dealership or check out their website. They would love to serve you!
