What’s Coming for Dodge?

New Cars at All Star Dodge in Bridgeton

We love the current line up of vehicles at All Star Dodge in Bridgeton, but it’s nice to look to the future to see what we can expect to see from Dodge in the coming years. Today we want to look at a little timeline to see what models are coming.

2018: Jeep Wrangler (JL), Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody, Dodge Durango SRT and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

2019: Ram 1500 (DT), Special new performance packages on Charger and Challenger SRT392 and Hellcat models, Jeep Cherokee (KL) refresh, Jeep Renegade (BU), Ram HD (DJ/D2) refresh, JT pickup

2020: Jeep Grand Cherokee (WL), Dodge Durango (WE?), Grand Wagoneer/Wagoneer (WS), Stelvio-Journey replacement (??), Chrysler midsize CUV based on KL, Chrysler fullsize CUV (RD), Jeep K8 (Euro-Asia), Ram ProMaster (VG)

2021: Chrysler 300 (GX), Dodge Charger (GD), Dodge Challenger (GA), new Ram HD (DK/D3), Ram ProMaster City (VN)

2022: Dodge midsize RWD Sedan (G?), Portal based electric minivan (RE?)

Ram HD moved back to 2021; current trucks will get a 2019 mild refresh.

“The Chrysler and Dodge large cars (Challenger, Charger, 300) might still be updated for model-year 2019 to get updated Pentastar engines and other refinements for their final two or three years. Here’s another rendering of what the 2019 Chrysler 300 may look like. (Sources are now saying the current versions will soldier on until they are replaced around 2020-21.) The Chrysler Portal was, we were told, a preview of new styling themes to come — perhaps replacing the relatively low-key Pacifica’s themes.”-allpar.com

For more information on the different models that are coming out in the upcoming years, or to take a test drive in the current models, you need to head to All Star Dodge. Their friendly and knowledgeable team would love to get you behind the wheel of this line up!

Jeep Grand Cherokee Fast Facts

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near O’Fallon

When you decide to buy a new Jeep, you might wonder which Jeep will be the right ride for you. Today we want to share with you some of the fast facts about the Jeep Grand Cherokee that is available at All Star Jeep Dealer near O’Fallon.

What’s new for 2017? – A new Trailhawk model features all of the off-road-ready hardware in Jeep’s arsenal, plus a unique interior and trademark red tow hooks. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line Summit model gets a more upscale interior and more standard equipment. The SRT gets its own unique front fascia and a “Laguna leather” interior package, while all other models except the Summit get the front-end treatment from 2016’s 75th Anniversary Edition. All Grand Cherokees now have a backup camera and rear parking sensors as standard.

It’s Safe – The Jeep Grand Cherokee gets a perfect five-star rating from NHTSA when equipped with four-wheel drive, but rear-drive models get only four stars. Front and side crash ratings are five stars for both, but the RWD version gets three stars for rollover versus the 4WD’s four. “The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety hasn’t tested a 2017 Grand Cherokee, but gave the 2016 model its best rating (“Good”) for all tests except its difficult new small-overlap crash test, in which the Grand Cherokee was rated “Marginal”—that’s only one step up from the bottom. Available active safety features include forward collision warning and mitigation with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure and blind-spot warning systems.”-motortrend.com

Trailhawk Jeep Grand Cherokee is Off-Road Ready

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

It is no secret that Jeep Vehicles are some of the most off-road capable SUVs on the market today. It could be argued, quite successfully, that Jeep invented the SUV. (If you look at history, they did in order to help tackle the terrain of Europe during WWII.) Today we want to talk about the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk that has been labels the most off-road ready trim of the Jeep Grand Cherokee line.

The new Trailhawk becomes the sixth trim level of the Grand Cherokee series, joining Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit, and the hot rod SRT.

Prices for the Jeep midsize SUV start at $29,995 and range to $64,695. Two option packages and three standalone items took the bottom line from a base of $43,095 to an as-tested price of $50,220. (These are just list prices and may be different at the All Star Jeep Dealership.)

Trailhawk is the most off-road-ready of all Grand Cherokees. Sold only with four-wheel drive, Trailhawk’s roster of standard gear includes Jeep’s Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system with an electronic, limited-slip rear differential. Quadra-Drive includes selectable, low-range gearing.

The Selec-Terrain traction control system lets drivers choose from five driving conditions — sand, mud, auto, snow, and rock — each with coordinated settings for powertrain, suspension, and braking systems. Quadra-Lift air suspension is adapted for Trailhawk to provide increased suspension travel and improved articulation. Skid plates add protection for vital underbody components. Hill-ascent and hill-descent controls maintain a set, slow speed for traversing uphill/downhill grades, freeing the driver to concentrate on steering, without need to touch the pedals. Speed can be adjusted via steering wheel paddles. Unusually, hill-descent control can also be used in reverse. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and couriertimes.com.)

Where are You Going?

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

“Where are you going?” This is a question that is asked to find out, in the short term, where you are going. What if we expanded the scope of the question to mean in the long term? This long term question is one that Jeep asked itself in the early 1990’s. Jeep had been a successful auto maker for a long time but were looking for a way to begin competing with the larger scale SUV models that were on the market.

Three trim levels were initially offered; base, Laredo and Limited. All models boasted two features not seen on other vehicles in the Grand Cherokee’s class: a driver’s side airbag and four-wheel antilock brakes. Base models had a few notable features such as full instruments, cloth interior and a five-speed manual gearbox. The Laredo added body cladding, fancier seats, power mirrors and cruise control. And the top-of-the-line Limited came with leather seating, A/C, four-speed automatic transmission, upgraded sound system and power everything. Later in the 1993 model year, the Grand Wagoneer debuted — essentially a G.C. Limited with simulated woodgrain tacked onto the body sides, just like dad’s old Ford LTD Country Squire Wagon.

Built on a stiff unibody chassis, which was lighter than a truck-like body-on-frame arrangement, the Grand Cherokee’s 105.9-inch wheelbase was 4.5-inches longer than the Cherokee’s, resulting in more legroom for those riding in the back. (This information was gathered from edmonds.com and jeep.com.)

This new Jeep Grand Cherokee model was so well received that it became a permanent part of the Jeep line up and added several other trim options. We invite you to head to All Star near Florissant and check out the incredible trims that the Jeep Grand Cherokee has to offer. The All Star team is waiting and ready to help!

Goodbye Patriot, Hello Patriot?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ellisville

We have heard for months that the Jeep Patriot would be merged with the Jeep Compass to make an awesome CUV mashup. We have gotten word about what this new model will look like, at it seems like it is going to resemble a baby Grand Cherokee. While you can still get the Jeep Patriot at All Star near Ellisville, we want to talk about what this new model might look like and feature.

Starting with the skin, it’s like Jeep’s designers scaled down the Grand Cherokee’s profile to fit on the new crossover’s stretched Renegade platform. The headlights, grille, and taillights looked like shrunken items from Jeep’s flagship crossover, too. This is good news – even after its 2011 facelift the Compass was a homely little thing, and the Patriot was boxy at a time when CUVs were going for smoother, more aerodynamic lines. Jeep’s new CUV is avoiding those mistakes by aping one of the company’s most popular designs.

Only the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and center stack appear in the interior images, so we can’t tell how the stretched chassis impacts rear-seat legroom compared to the Renegade/Fiat 500X. But in front, it looks like a Jeep – FCA’s corporate steering wheel and HVAC controls are present and accounted for, but the usual touchscreen display looks bigger the expected 8.4-inch unit. That could just be the camera angle playing tricks on our eyes. We can’t make any judgments about the material choices, but we’d expect quality to be on par with the larger Cherokee.

For more information on the existing Jeep Patriot or the new mash up model that is set to be released soon, head to All Star today. Their team would like to show you the great features of their new models!

New Platform for the Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the top models in the Jeep lineup. It has been popular for a long time with long time Jeep fans and new Jeep fans alike. While we were not anticipating any major changes on the Jeep Grand Cherokee to be announced at the auto show currently happening in Detroit, but we did learn some new information. We want to share this information with you today.

“At a roundtable discussion with members of the media, Marchionne revealed that the upcoming Jeep Grand Cherokee will be built on a rear-wheel-drive platform developed by Alfa Romeo,” (yahoo.com). To our ears, it sounds like Marchionne is referring to the platform currently being used in the Alfa Romeo Giulia-a platform which, in modified form, will underpin the upcoming Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV and a number of additional new Alfa offerings. With the Giulia and Stelvio both offering all-wheel drive, it shouldn’t be difficult for Jeep to integrate an off-road capable 4WD system into the shared platform.

It’s a telling, but logical, revelation. Fiat Chrysler is undertaking a massive product shift, in an effort to erase the massive debt the automaker currently carries, and platform sharing is a great way to extend the product portfolio while saving money on development costs. Those plans involve a huge new investment in updating FCA’s U.S. manufacturing plants to produce pickup trucks and crossovers, to the tune of $1 billion. (This announcement also means that there are likely to be at least 2000 new jobs added because of this investment.)

For more information on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, head to All Star near Glendale. Their team would be more than happy to talk about this new platform and have you test drive the Grand Cherokee.

What to Expect for the Patriot in 2017

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Creve Coeur

We have known for some time that Jeep would be merging the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot into one super Jeep model. What we have not been sure about is what this new merged model will look like. As spy shots have been becoming available, we are starting to get a better picture of what this new combination model will look like and offer; we want to share with you how we think things are shaping up.

The SUV, which retains the same shape as the prototypes our photographers captured testing earlier this year, borrows a sizable amount of styling cues from the larger, more expensive Jeep Grand Cherokee. Are we getting a new Jeep that is similar to the Grand Cherokee, just smaller?

“If the SUV’s badging is anything to go off of, Jeep will retain the Compass moniker for the upcoming vehicle. At the front, the SUV has a similar grille to the Grand Cherokee with seven rectangular openings, which are smaller than the ones found on the current compass, with chrome trim. The headlights and LED daytime lights are also similar to the ones on the Grand Cherokee.” -autoblog.com

The black roof, which is a new touch for Jeep, is a nod toward the SUV’s European competitors like the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. The new model loses the square-like taillights on the previous model for oval-shaped ones. Overall, the SUV adds modern touches to the aging Compass and Patriot models while staying true to Jeep’s iconic look.

While we still are not 100% sure on what to expect from this new model, we are sure that it will have everything that we expect from a Jeep combined with all of the finest features of the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot. Get more information on this new model at All Star Jeep Dealer near Creve Coeur.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Super Charged

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star in MO

We love the Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer in MO, but we would love it even more if it were super charged. As it turns out FCA has heard our desire for more speed and have happily obliged. Let us learn more about this today!

Jeep in late 2017 will bring to market a Grand Cherokee powered by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ [NYSE:FCAU] awesome supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 known as the Hellcat.

“Speaking with The Detriot News, Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed the vehicle will carry the oft-rumored Trackhawk name and be offered alongside the existing Grand Cherokee SRT.”-motorauthority.com

The Hellcat engine delivers 707 horsepower in the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat models, though this figure may be toned down when hooked up with the Grand Cherokee’s all-wheel-drive system. Nevertheless, we’ve heard the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk’s 0-60 mph time could slip under 3.0 seconds.

The Grand Cherokee SRT, meanwhile, is powered by a 6.4-liter V-8 delivering 475 horsepower, enough to hustle the SUV from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.

Pricing for the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is expected to start around $80K, which while pricey still makes the vehicle a bargain given the performance on offer. The Grand Cherokee SRT starts at a tad under $68K. Manley described the two models as being “very different.” A debut is expected to take place at the 2017 New York auto show next April, with sales to follow in the fall of that year.

It looks like FCA has really given us a more powerful Jeep Grand Cherokee, and we could not be more thrilled. For more information on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, head to All Star today. Their team would be more than happy to assist you in getting one of these powerful vehicles.

Grand Cherokee Made For Travel

Tartu - September 26: Jeep Grand Cherokee at the Tartu Motoshow on September 26 2015 in Tartu Estonia

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

There are a lot of great SUV models in the Jeep lineup, but one that stands out is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Today we want to share with you some of the great attributes that the Jeep Grand Cherokee has to offer its owners.

SO Much Entertainment – Large vehicles are great for ferrying passengers, and the 2016 Grand Cherokee keeps them entertained too. There are 19 Harmon Kardon speakers, and riders can link up with the vehicle’s Uconnect entertainment system via Bluetooth or USB. In short, parents may finally get a chance to enjoy longer voyages.

It’s Safe – In addition to the standard complement of legally-approved driver and passenger airbags, this vehicle includes head airbags for added crash protection. To reduce the likelihood of getting in a wreck in the first place, the 2016 Grand Cherokee features strong, anti-lock disc brakes with assist technology. Electronic stability and traction controls may also improve a motorist’s chances of staying out of trouble.

Lots of Cargo Space – All that towing capacity doesn’t go to waste in the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle includes around 36 cubic feet of space for gear, baggage, and other cargo immediately behind the rear seating. Those who like to drive without many passengers can fold the rear seats down to almost double the cargo volume. According to testers, the extra space also means that the rear compartment is comfortable for taller riders.

For more information on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, head to All Star near Florissant today. Their team would love to help you select the Grand Cherokee and options that will be perfect for all of your holiday travel this year. You are sure to love everything that the Grand Cherokee has to offer you and your passengers!
