Would the Dodge Durango be the Right Choice for You?

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge Ram near Florissant

If you are shopping around for a great SUV that has 3 rows of seats and loads of character, you need to check out the Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge Ram near Florissant. This SUV is as powerful as it is comfortable, but don’t take our word for it! We want to share with you what some real owners had to say about their Dodge Durango!
Great vehicle, great value. I was in the market for a new good size SUV ,with great towing features and capacity. Dodge Durango was the perfect fit. I use this vehicle to transport cargo and family. This vehicle covers all aspects of my busy lifestyle from camping,towing my boat, bringing stuff home for my lawn and garden. I couldn’t find a better fit for my lifestyle. I am impressed with the design and performance from this vehicle. If you are looking for a vehicle that’s not going to put you to sleep the Durango is what you are looking for. I am very satisfied in my choice. I smile every time I get in and start this SUV.-James

We bought a new 2017 Durango AWD RT after having an accident in our trusty Jeep Commander HEMI. I drive a Corvette with 465hp and must say, this thing is a BLAST to drive (Keep sport mode on and “eco” mode off). For a family car, you just can’t go wrong. Our Commander was nice, but so much improvement in engine/transmission/electronics over the past 6 years means a MUCH smoother, faster, better sounding beast than I could have imagined. I love this truck and am truly happy with it. Highly recommended! PS, the kids love the extra room in the 3rd row over the Commander too. -Dev

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!

All Star Service

Service Department at All Star Dodge Ram near Ellisville

When it comes to getting your Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler cars, trucks, and SUVs serviced, there is no better option than the Service Department at All Star Dodge Ram near Ellisville. Their certified technicians are factory trained and know exactly what needs to be done to keep your vehicles in top running condition. Today we want to share with you some of the benefits of dealership service.

Dealerships have the advantage of being associated with certain manufacturers, which means all of their technicians receive manufacturer-specific training. The technicians are usually specialists on certain vehicle makes and models and only work on those two or three brands.

Edmunds explains, “The manufacturers offer these training programs only to their network of dealers. The dealers typically pay for these programs to keep up with the latest vehicle enhancements and repair techniques.”

“While the manufacturer-specific training may only be available at certain dealerships, independent mechanics have the ability to receive certified training through the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). When choosing a mechanic, make sure you choose someone who is ASE-certified rather than some guy down the street who supposedly does good work. Certifications and experience are important, so ask questions before you decide to have a local mechanic work on your vehicle.”-motors.com

This whole concept of factory training is something that we cannot emphasize enough. You wouldn’t let just anyone come in and work on your electricity in your house, so why would you let just anyone work on your car? While sometimes dealership services may be a little more expensive (a lot of the time not, but this is a common misconception for people), you are getting far better quality repairs, and in the long run, a vehicle that will run like new for a lot longer period of time.

All Star Parts Make Everything Right

Parts Department at All Star Dodge near WEntzville

When you are in need of parts for your Jeep, Dodge, Ram, or Chrysler cars, trucks, and SUVs, you need look no further than the parts department at All Star Dodge near Wentzville. The parts that All Star offers are designed specifically for the vehicles that they sell and can allow you to keep your automobiles in top running condition. Today we want to take a look at how factory parts are best!

Parts built by the exact same manufacturer that made the ones originally installed on your vehicle when it was built are known as “OEM”, signifying they are made by the original equipment manufacturer. Whether they were built by the automaker themselves or contracted to an outside supplier to build, they are fully authorized by the carmaker as “genuine” or “authentic”. The expression “OE” (signifying “original equipment”) is used in the business just as often to signify a genuine or authentic part. Dealership parts departments and manufacturers use the term “OEM” when they refer to parts the vehicle manufacturer authorizes.

New car manufacturers typically provide bumper-to-bumper warranties for three or four years on newer cars, and may continue coverage of certain items for up to six years on vehicles bought with a Certified Pre-Owned warranty. Additionally, some powertrain warranties cover running gear such as internal engine, transmission, and drivetrain components for longer amounts of time. When warranty coverage is involved, new car manufacturers always want the failed parts shipped back to them. They will automatically reject coverage if a failed part is an aftermarket one, or the part in question failed because of a connected aftermarket part elsewhere.

Which Jeep Patriot is Right for You?

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton

There are a number of wonderful SUV models on the market today; you could say that every auto dealer has their own version that they claim is the best. Truth be told, some of the very best SUV models on the market come from the Jeep line up. One model in particular, the Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton, is a top notch SUV with a vast selection of options. Today we want to take a look at some of the top trim levels offered on the Patriot.

The 75th Anniversary package includes 17-inch bronze-painted alloy wheels, bronze exterior accents, remote engine start, a sunroof, mesh upholstery and a cargo cover.

“The Latitude comes with all of the features of the Sport with the Power Value Group, plus air-conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, remote keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio controls, a height-adjustable driver seat, heated front seats, reclining rear seat backs and a 115-volt power outlet.”-edmunds.com

A few options packages are available on the Patriot Latitude. The Premium Sound Group adds nine Boston Acoustics speakers, including two that flip down from the tailgate.

Which Jeep Grand Cherokee Should I Buy?

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

It is an easy decision to buy a Jeep. They are fantastic vehicles that are incredibly capable and stylish to boot! The decision making starts getting harder when you have to pick a model from the Jeep line up. We recommend the Jeep Grand Cherokee from All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton. It has a lot of great new features this year, including a Trailhawk model with extra off-road kit debuts for 2017, while the top-of-the-line Summit gets slightly revised styling and additional luxury-oriented interior garnishes. Newly available features include a self-parking system and lane departure warning. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are now standard on every Grand Cherokee.

Now that you know you want to get a Jeep Grand Cherokee, you might wonder which trim will be right for you. There is a trim that we think is pretty neat, and it’s new too! We are talking of course about the Trailhawk! The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a lot of standard and optional features to choose from, but in general, we’re most fond of the off-road-ready Trailhawk. “It can go nearly anywhere and yet still comes with swanky equipment such as ventilated seats and the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen. The Trailhawk’s standard V6 is capable, but an upgrade to the diesel-powered V6 or the 5.7-liter V8 will significantly increase tow ratings. Beyond the extra pulling power, the diesel V6 offers impressive fuel economy, and the V8 gives this Jeep the character of a classic muscle car.”-edmunds.com

Go to All STar today and check out the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk today. We are sure that you will love this stylish and capable model. You deserve to drive a great SUV – you deserve to drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee!

Should I Buy a New Car?

New Cars at All Star Dodge Ram near IL

You have realized that it is time for you to change up your automobile. Should you buy a new car or a used car from All Star Dodge Ram near IL? We think that the new cars at All Star are the tops, and we want to share with you a few reasons why we think you should get a new car!

They are reliable: According to J.D. Power, more than half of car buyers claim that after exterior and interior styling, reliability is the most important factor when choosing a vehicle. Because new cars are typically more reliable than used cars, consumers are likely better served by choosing a new one instead of a used one. Keep in mind that the modern definition of reliability encompasses matters of design, user experience, and expectations of operation in addition to outright component failure. Choosing a simpler, less complex vehicle is often the best path to trouble-free car ownership.

You get a great warranty: New cars come with a warranty, and some are quite generous. This means that if something does break or fails to work as designed or intended, you can get it replaced at no cost.

“They have the latest safety technology: During the past half-decade, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has set the safety agenda and requirements for the automotive industry, pushing beyond the minimum standards required by the federal government. There is a new test and the passing grade that would lead to a “Top Safety Pick” designation led automakers to develop stronger and more robust vehicle structures that do a better job of protecting occupants, (nydailynews.com). You can get more information on the safety performance of the different Dodge Ram vehicles today at All Star!

What to Expect from the Jeep Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer in Bridgeton

When you are in the market for a new SUV, you need to check out the Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer in Bridgeton. This powerful Jeep Cherokee has a lot to offer as far as comfort and style, a stylish interior, and a powerful engine. Today we want to take a look at the performance on the Jeep Cherokee as well as the miles per gallon they offer as well.

Standard on most 2017 Jeep Cherokees is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Optional on most is a 3.2-liter V6 that makes 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with both engines.

You have your choice of front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with either engine, but Trailhawk models are 4WD-only. Jeep offers two 4WD systems. Standard on four-wheel-drive Sport, Latitude and Limited models is the light-duty Active Drive I 4WD system; it requires no input from the driver, though it does come with a Selec-Terrain dial that features different terrain modes. Standard on the Trailhawk and Overland and optional on the Limited is the more rugged Active Drive II system, which features low-range gearing and a locking rear differential along with an additional Rock mode for the Selec-Terrain dial.

The optional towing package gives V6 models a healthy 4,500-pound towing capacity.

“When equipped with front-wheel drive and the four-cylinder engine, the Cherokee is EPA-rated at 25 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway). Surprisingly, the V6 and front-wheel drive is nearly as good with 24 mpg combined (21 city/29 highway). EPA-estimated fuel economy for 4WD Cherokees is slightly less than above, with the Trailhawk bringing up the rear at 22 mpg combined with the four-cylinder and 21 mpg combined with the V6.”-edmunds.com

The Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant is a wonderful SUV that has a number of great different options and additions that you can choose that allow you to make the Compass your own. Today we want to take a look at the top trim choices and what each of them provides you.

The Compass Limited is the most comprehensively equipped. Standout features include 18-inch wheels, upgraded exterior trim, a 8.5-inch Uconnect touchscreen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration), automatic dual-zone climate control, an upgraded driver information display, a power driver seat, heated front seats and leather upholstery. Unlike the Sport and Latitude, the Limited is only available with AWD and a nine-speed automatic.

Though the Trailhawk sits below the Limited in price, it differs greatly in function and features. Only available in AWD with the nine-speed auto, it rides on 17-inch wheels with off-road-oriented tires, a raised suspension and a unique front fascia to maximize approach and breakover angles. Further mechanical changes include its own Selec-Terrain system to help it crawl over steep climbs and rocky surfaces. Red tow hooks front and rear and a matte-black hood accent further differentiate the Trailhawk from the rest of the Compass line, while a hidden set of underbody protection shields keep the engine, oil pan and gas tank from harm’s way.
