The Perfect Pacifica

Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near North County

It would seem as though the days of the minivan were gone, being replaced by crossovers and fancy SUVs. However, Chrysler did not want us to say goodbye to the minivan as they were the originators of this remarkable vehicle. For this reason, Chrysler spent a lot of time and effort in developing what we think is the ultimate minivan. This new minivan is known as the Chrysler Pacifica and we think that you are really going to love it!

Although the Pacifica existed in another life as a discontinued crossover, the new luxury minivan replaced the brand’s Town & Country and made a stunning debut in 2016 as the new challenger to the minivan market that has been dominated by the Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna. Fans loved it and so did the critics — all for good reason. It is also only only hybrid minivan currently on the market. (thecrier.net)

The Pacifica crams so much great stuff into the vehicle that is boggles the mind. It offers automatic opening doors and rear seat entertainment, with each of the two seats getting its own television screen, hidden storage bins, second row seats that not only fold flat into the floor (called Stow ’n Go) but can be pushed to provide easy access to the third row. Kids going into the third row don’t have to climb over second-row friends, which hardly is an easy exercise. As a bonus, the underfloor compartments can be used as more than simply storage. You can buy liners and fill them with ice and used as coolers. Perfect for the lake, long trips and tailgating.

Big Plans at Chrysler

New Chrysler Cars at All Star in Bridgeton

Chrysler is making some big moves in 2017. Probably the biggest move is that Chrysler is making is the Pacifica. Chrysler has begun making a SUV and minivan super vehicle, known as the Chrysler Pacifica. We are going to take a look at this impressive crossover.

A minivan may be a box, but the Pacifica is undeniably a good-looking box. Wider and with a more aggressive stance than the Town & Country, it presents a crisp, sleek profile and is arguably the best-looking minivan on the market. As before, the sliding-door tracks are tucked away under the rear windows, further smoothing the look. And its shape also makes the Pacifica the most aerodynamic minivan, according to Chrysler, which improves fuel economy. It lets the Odyssey contend for best-in-class highway mileage at 28 mpg, and the Pacifica does that with 39 more ponies. The Pacifica overachieved its highway rating with an impressive 31 mpg on our real-world highway fuel-economy test, performed at a steady 75 mph.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is about the only piece of the Pacifica that is not new, but it has been tweaked for greater power and fuel economy. Good for 287 horsepower and paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, it delivered a 7.3-second zero-to-60-mph time—quicker by a few tenths than its closest competitors.

“A plug-in-hybrid version is promised later this year. It will pair the V-6 with an electric motor, fed by batteries tucked into the compartments that are reserved for folding second-row seats in gasoline-powered versions. Chrysler claims the hybrid will be able to travel up to 30 miles on electric power alone before the V-6 kicks in and will deliver 80 MPGe in the city.”-caranddriver.com

How Does Car Service Work?

Service at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Louis

It would seem that getting your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, or Chrysler serviced at All Star near St. Louis is really easy, and for the customer it is, but there are actually a lot of things happening to make sure that you have a great experience and to ensure that your vehicle gets the servicing it needs. Today we want to take a quick look at the processes that take place to ensure a quality repair.

While every dealership is a little different, most processes are the same. When a customer first pulls into a dealership’s service drive, they are greeted either by a service consultant or a porter who will direct them to an available service consultant.

The service consultant then will ask what the customer needs help with, and write up a repair order describing the work to be performed. Once that’s done, the customer signs the repair order–which often has an estimate of the repair costs on it–and heads to the waiting area or gets a ride home or a loaner vehicle, if the car will be in the shop for a while.

Once the repair order, or R.O., is complete, the service advisor will either hand it to a dispatcher, who will assign the work to a technician, or if the dealership does not use a dispatcher, the advisor will assign the work directly.

Once this is done, the technician brings the car to his or her work bay, and begins working. In most cases, whether performing an oil change or major repair work, the technician will need to order parts for the job. Sometimes these parts come from the dealership’s own parts department. Then the repairs begin.

Parts! Parts! Parts!

Parts at All Star Dealership near Saint Charles

We are often asked if people should take their Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler cars to the All Star Dealership near Saint Charles for servicing, or if they can just take their vehicles to an independently owned shop. We believe that dealership service is the best service, and we would like to tell you why, today.

Advanced Training – In order to maintain their franchises dealerships must pay for training their technicians and providing special tools and equipment. Dealers also have access to proprietary information, information on new vehicles they sell and service. This means that no one else can access this information, which is often necessary for diagnosis and repair. In addition, dealership service departments work mainly on the makes and models that they sell. Since they are very familiar with the particular car line, they can usually pinpoint a problem more quickly and more accurately. The faster they can figure the problem out, the faster they can work to correct it, and the faster you get your car back. This also can mean big savings since the technicians are able to correct the problem faster – less time on repairs means less money out of your wallet.

It used to be that a dealership’s hourly rates were higher than the independent shops because of overhead, cost of tools, and training. However, this isn’t the case any more. Car technologies are advancing so quickly that the independent shops are incurring a lot more costs just trying to keep up with the technology, the need for ongoing training and the purchase of new equipment and tools. The dealerships can keep up and be ahead of the changes because they represent the company that is making the changes.

The Sweet Chrysler 200

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton

Although the Chrysler 200 is no longer in production (it ended production late in 2016), there are still a number of them available at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton. The Chrysler 200 is a midsized sedan that offers a smooth drive at a great price point. Today we want to talk a bit about a specific sweet spot within the 200 line that we found while doing a test drive.

This 200 wore handsome Black Forest Green Pearl paint, so dark it looks black under some lighting conditions, over a Linen and Black interior. Whether or not it’s due to Fiat’s Italian influence, the tastefulness of Chrysler’s color and trim choices has improved dramatically in recent times.

The car we test drove was outfitted in Limited Platinum trim, a new designation for the 2016 year that packs a lot of value. Initially, the base 200LX and the one-step-up Limited offered only the four-cylinder engine, while the sportier 200S and luxury-centered 200C opened the pathway to V-6 and all-wheel-drive options. Late in 2015, Chrysler made the V-6 optional on Limited models (you still need to go for the S or the C to get all-wheel drive). For 2016, the most sought-after options are loaded into the Platinum designation, which wears the same $25,485 base price as the Limited (double check the actual 200 price with a member of the All Star team) but includes equipment that would have cost $1970 as separate options under the former price structure (an upgrade to the Uconnect infotainment system from the standard 5.0-inch screen to a navigation-capable version with an 8.4-inch screen, plus leather-trimmed bucket seats). Since the 200 is no longer in production, you will have to find a trim that offers the options that you want, since you can no longer order a 200.

The Face of Chrysler in 2017

Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near O’Fallon

2017 is shaping up to be a big year for Chrysler. They are expanding their manufacturing in the United States, switching up their line up, and looking at ways to merge new technology with their classic automobiles. Today we want to share with you a little glimpse of the changes that you will see from Chrysler this year.

Town and Country: “The ‘Town & Country’ tag is out, a resurrected Chrysler Pacifica tag is in, and both the design and content are transformational – at least in the context of a minivan available in North America. And for those looking to both capacity and efficiency, Chrysler now offers a plug-in Pacifica hybrid with 30+ miles of all-electric range. While all Pacifica trims represent good value, with federal tax credits the Pacifica Plug-In is great value.”-autoblog.com

200: In 2017 Chrysler offers a 200 with both a new Dark Appearance package and an Alloy Edition. The ‘Alloy’ offers a sport-tuned suspension in combination with an all-wheel-drive system featuring a ‘sport’ mode for better all-season traction. However, soon Chrysler will be discontinuing the 200; we expect to see a replacement soon.

300: The venerable 300 continues the long run with fourth-generation Uconnect, along with the addition of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Beyond that, it’s a new year with new colors, trims and packaging. And while the platform may be showing its age, it remains a compelling option for those wanting upmarket content at a reasonably accessible ($30K to $40K) price point (this is just a basic price range, you can find the exact price of a Chrysler 300 at All Star).
