2018 Jeep Wrangler Spotted!

Jeep Wrangler at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country

We love when there are leaks of what the latest Jeep models will look like when they are released. It’s like getting to watch a long trailer for the hottest movie that will be coming out. We recently got a look at what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will look like once it is available at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler isn’t scheduled to be officially revealed for a few more months, but leaked images may have uncovered its new design. The overall look hasn’t changed much, but there’s a longer hood, a more prominent front bumper, vents behind the front fenders, and a character line running under what appear to be taller windows.

“A kinked grille has outer slats that curve around the headlights, while the turn signals move to the fenders. The Wrangler’s signature hood latches and exposed door hinges remain, as does its fold-down windshield, despite rumors that the feature wouldn’t make the cut.”-foxnews.com

If authentic, the images also confirm that the next-generation Wrangler will have a fully removable roof and doors, with framework replacing the sport bar used on the current model. Overall, the look is in line with a lot of rumors that have been floating around about the 2018 Wrangler. We loved the look of the leaked Jeep Wrangler and can only hope that the model released to dealerships will look very similar to the mules we saw on the road. (A mule is a prototype of a car.)

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.

Feel the Power of the Grand Cherokee!

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton

It is common knowledge that Jeep makes amazing SUVs. They are capable and responsive, while being comfortable to sit in and drive. It turns out that Jeep has now been named the most powerful SUV on the market, thanks to the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. What makes the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Fenton so powerful? – Let’s take a look.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk borrows the 707 horsepower supercharged V8 from the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats. This is the first time that the 6.2-liter supercharged motor has been paired with an all-wheel-drive system, which has been strengthened to handle its 645 lb-ft of brute force torque.

Though the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is not designed for off-roading (unless you count race tracks as off-road,) the Trackhawk comes equipped with a computer-controlled Bilstein adaptive suspension system and five performance modes (Normal, Sport, Track, Snow and Tow) that tweak the ride stiffness, steering, 8-speed automatic transmission, AWD, limited-slip rear differential, etc., to suit the occasion. This different performance modes allow the driver to have maximum control over the engine and the driving experience.

“The Trackhawk’s tow rating is 7,200 pounds, but you’re probably more interested in the other way it hauls. Jeep says it will do 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds on the way to a 180 mph top speed. Thanks to the Trackhawk’s vented hood and front fascia help cool the engine and reduce aerodynamic lift at speed, and a set of 15.75-inch Brembo front brakes – the largest ever fitted to a Jeep — slow the 5,363-pound beast down when you’re done with the fun.”-foxnews.com

What Does a Jeep Cherokee Go For These Days?

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near IL

One of the most popular questions the team at All Star gets is, “What does this model go for these days?” For more reason, people beat around the bush to find out how much a vehicle in which they are interested costs. If you are at the dealership looking to buy a car, truck, or SUV, the price is going to come up, no need to ask in a round about way, ask directly! At All Star they believe in having honest conversations about the cost of the vehicles that they sell – it’s all part of their customer first philosophy. Today we want to take a look at some of the base costs of a Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near IL.

The base Jeep Cherokee starts at $23,595 and comes in six different trims, ranging from the base Sport model to the top-of-the-line Overland. That starting price is about average for the class, but know that you’re going to pay much more than the base price if you want to go off road in the Cherokee. Four-wheel drive is an extra $2,000 in most trims, and for a locking rear differential, you’re going to need to get the Trailhawk model, which starts at $31,195. In short, if you’re just planning on using the Cherokee as a family runabout, prices are in line with the rest of the class. However, if you’re planning on going overlanding in it, expect to pay more for the privilege.

“Standard features in the Jeep Cherokee include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speaker audio system, a 5-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Bluetooth, and a USB port. A 3.2-liter V6 engine is optional in all other trims for around $1,700.”-car.usnews.com

Go Further in a Jeep Compass

Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

Is your daily driving getting to be a bit mundane? Are you tired of driving your same old sedan or SUV on the same St. Louis highways day in and day out? We think that you need a bit of adventure in your life, we think that you need to get behind the wheel of a Jeep Compass. Today we want to explore the off-road capability of the Jeep Compass that is available at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant.

The new compact SUV’s upscale looks outclass similarly priced competitors, and its off-road ability would literally leave them in its tracks.

Priced from $22,090 including shipping (this is just a base price, you will need to check with a member of the All Star team for a more accurate price) and arriving in Jeep dealerships within a few weeks, the Compass seats five. On size, it fits between Jeep’s Renegade subcompact and midsize Cherokee SUVs.

The new Compass looks a bit like a scaled-down version of the Grand Cherokee, Jeep’s most prestigious model. It’s rounder and more sophisticated than the squared off Renegade and Wrangler SUVs.

Two-tone paint adds an elegant black roof and pillars that combine with LED taillights, projector head lights, leather upholstery, soft interior materials, big touch screen and optional 19-inch wheels for a ritzy look and feel. The 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and 9-speed automatic transmission deliver plenty of power for everyday driving. The new Compass, in its front-drive, manual transmission version, is rated at 23 miles per gallon in the city, 32 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg combined. A 4-wheel-drive Compass with the 9-speed automatic scored 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined. It can tow up to 2,000 pounds.

More Chrysler Investments!

Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near Wentzville

We LOVE Chrysler Cars! We love the styling of exteriors, the comfort of the interiors, and the power of the engines. What makes Chrysler even better is that they are not only a company that produces fantastic automobiles but that they also believe in investing in the United States. More investments in the US mean more jobs starting with the production line all the way through to the dealerships. We want to take a deeper look at this investment today.

“The automaker will add 2,000 jobs at factories in Michigan and Ohio, the Italian-American company said Sunday ahead of the Detroit auto show. It will retool the facilities by 2020 and add the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer sport utility vehicles and a pickup model to its lineup. After improvements to a plant in Warren, Michigan, the site will be able to assemble Ram HD trucks now produced in Saltillo, Mexico,” (bloomberg.com). Chrysler is moving jobs in other countries back to the United States!

The company is set to start producing a new version of its Jeep Compass SUV for the U.S. market at the Toluca plant. Its factory in Belvidere, Illinois, which used to assemble the model as well as the Jeep Patriot and Dodge Dart compact car, is being retooled to make Jeep Cherokee SUVs.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles $1 billion plan to build in the U.S. three new Jeeps and a Ram pickup now produced in Mexico won plaudits from President Trump. (The new President is trying to inspire the auto industry to move more manufacturing to the United States; he is very pleased with Chrysler’s announcement to move some of their manufacturing to the US.)
