Ram 3500: Super Truck

Ram 3500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville

If you are one of the many hard working people in the St. Louis area, you might need a truck that can keep up with your hard work. If this sounds like you, then you need to get the super Ram 3500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville.

The Ram 3500 is the sort of truck that gives even a temporary owner a powerful urge to stop off at Tractor Supply Co. for a Carhartt jacket, steel-toed work boots, and rawhide gloves. And maybe 20 rolls of barbed wire, a couple dozen bags of cement, and one of every welder they sell. That’s what this big Ram is all about: work. You can outfit the interior with lots of fancy options— really somewhere around $18,045 in extras, but most of that can go to work-related enhancements. (This amount may not be totally accurate, talk to a member of the All Star team for a more exact figure.) Still, upscale features like leather, navigation, heated seats, premium audio, and Uconnect telematics spread only a thin veneer of civilization over a primordial brute with a work ethic that makes your average Calvinist look like a slacker.

“To put the Ram 3500 into perspective, here are some noteworthy numbers: 385 horsepower, 900 lb-ft of torque, up to 7390 pounds of payload capacity, 31,210 pounds of maximum towing capacity. The turbo-diesel V-8s in the Ford and GM behemoths huff up more horsepower than does the Ram’s 6.7-liter straight-six, but the Cummins engineers keep mining more torque, with an increase of 35 lb-ft over the 2015 version.”-caranddriver.com

Don’t just take our word for it, head to All Star today and check out the Ram 3500. Take a test drive and feel the power that this Ram has to offer!

Patriot Replacement

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Mehlville

We have been saying for some time now that the Jeep Patriot would be going away, along with the Jeep Compass and be replaced with a single model. We thought this was going to happen last year, but as it turns out, it is shaping up to be this year that this new replacement model will make its debut. Today we want to talk about what the Jeep Patriot replacement will probably look like.

A small collection of fully camouflaged new compact Jeep crossover vehicles being trailered about somewhere in Europe. Known internally as the C-SUV (compact SUV) and nicknamed the Compatriot by the Jeep cognoscenti, the as-yet-unnamed compact vehicle is slated to replace both the Jeep Patriot and Compass. Even the swirly camo pattern can’t disguise the Jeep-ness of these vehicles: See the shape of the wheel openings, the kicked-up body line in front of the C-pillar, and the baby version of the Grand Cherokee fascia. The finished appearance of the twin exhaust tips and the way they are integrated into the rear skid plate and cosmetic bodywork indicates that the vehicle is nearly ready for prime time. Which is good, since the current Compass and Patriot have been around so long that many people have probably forgotten that they are still available.

“One big point of contention in the current pair is their subpar interior layout and materials. While these images don’t reveal much in that regard, we are at least glad to see the easy-to-use corporate dials and buttons in their familiar positions. A typical FCA screen for access to Uconnect functions resides in the center of the dash, and USB and 12-volt power ports are clearly visible in the console.” -caranddriver.com

Durango – A Top SUV!

Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Mehlville

The Dodge Durango at All Star Dodge near Mehlville is one of the top selling SUV models on the market today. It is known for its drive-ability and immense comfort. Today we want to take a look at how the Durango started.

“Entering the sport utility vehicle market in 1998, Dodge Durango debuted as a competitor to the popular Ford Explorer and the Toyota 4Runner. With the optional forward-facing third row seat, the 1998 Dodge Durango could accommodate up to seven occupants.”-nadaguides.com

Standard engine power of the sport utility vehicle came from a 5.2-liter Magnum V-8 powerplant while a 5.9-liter was presented as an option. All Dodge Durango’s built during the first production year were equipped with four-wheel drive while an option of a part-time or full-time transfer case was available. For the 1999 model year, a more affordable two-wheel drive version was offered with the Durango as was a 3.9-liter Magnum V-6 engine as an alternative to eight-cylinder power.

In 2004, the Dodge Durango received a major update that resulted in the sport utility growing in proportions. The wheelbase of the 2004 Durango was three inches longer than its predecessor and was 4.3 inches taller. Increased exterior dimensions reflected in a larger interior space for additional passenger and cargo room. Base power was sourced from a 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter PowerTech V-6. Eight-cylinder propulsion from the Dodge Durango was derived either from a 4.7-liter PowerTech V-8 or from an all-new 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 producing 335 horsepower. In 2006, the HEMI V-8 engine added Multi-Displacement System allowing better fuel management. The convenience equipment on the Dodge Durango was also upgraded in 2004 with satellite radio, automatic temperature control air conditioning and Uconnect hands-free communication with Bluetooth offered for the first time. Briefly in 2009, the Dodge Durango was offered as a hybrid vehicle using a two-mode transmission.

Dodge Challenger: An American Classic

Dodge Challenger at All Star near Mehlville

The Dodge Challenger is considered a classic muscle car that has not only survived generations of drivers, but thrived. While we have enjoyed the re-release of the Challenger in recent years, it is nice to look back at where the Challenger started. Of course you can get the 2017 Challenger at All Star near Mehlville.

The first car that carried the Challenger name was the introduction of a limited edition Dodge Silver Challenger Club Sedan to the 1959 full-sized Dodge Coronet (fourth generation) model line produced in Detroit, Michigan.

The Silver Challenger came only in silver paint and exclusively on Chrysler’s 217.4 in (5,520 mm) long two-door body style riding on a 122.0 in (3,100 mm) wheelbase. It was available with either the 230 cu in (3.8 L) “Getaway” L-head straight-six engine for $2,297, or powered by the 325 cu in (5.3 L) “Red Ram” V8 for $2,408. This car was marketed for the spring selling season to the “new-car buyers who’ve been waiting to get the most for the least.” A column-shifted three-speed manual transmission was standard and an automatic was optional.

The 1959 Silver Challenger was marketed with extra features at no extra cost. These included premium white wall tires, full wheel covers, electric windshield wipers, as well as an upgraded interior with silver metallic vinyl and black “Manchu” fabric upholstery, dual arm rests and sun visors, as well as deep pile wall-to-wall carpeting.

When the name lapsed Studebaker introduced its own Challenger model in 1964 which was an entry level version of the Studebaker Lark series. (This information was gathered from dodge.com.)

This was just the first generation. The Challenger has gone through several redesigns over the years, but each redesign has remained true to the original aesthetics that made it so great. See the latest generation of the Dodge Challenger at All Star today!

Pre-Owned? Yes Please!

Certified Pre Owned Dodge Cars at All Star near Mehlville

When you are looking at getting a different vehicle, you have a lot of options. One option that we suggest you take is getting a pre-owned vehicle from All Star near Mehlville. Today we want to share with you some of the benefits of buying a pre-owned vehicle.

Only Vehicles in the Best Condition Qualify–Late-model, low-mileage vehicles with clean vehicle history reports are accepted into certified pre-owned programs sponsored by auto manufacturers. If a vehicle does not meet specific criteria, which varies depending on the automaker, it cannot become a CPO vehicle.

Extended Warranty Protection–Many CPO programs extend both the original basic and the original powertrain warranty on a CPO vehicle. Typically, those companies that provide shorter-term time and mileage limits for the original new car warranty are likely to extend their CPO programs by significant amounts in an effort to be competitive. Other manufacturers that provide generous new car warranty coverage may not increase limits for their CPO vehicles as much or at all. Rather, the remainder of the new car warranty is transferred to the new owner. You can also sometimes purchase additional warranties or pay to extend the existing warranty. This can be a huge benefit over the life of the vehicle.

Low Interest Financing–It’s true that CPO vehicles are usually more expensive than similar models that have not been certified, but CPO vehicles can also qualify for lower finance rates, typically equal to the loans offered on new vehicles. For buyers who are financing their CPO vehicle, the lower interest rate effectively lowers the monthly payment, helping to ameliorate the effect of the higher asking price on the household budget.

Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star near Mehlville

When you are looking for a great new family vehicle, you need to check out the Dodge Grand Caravan at All Star near Mehlville. This minivan is just what you need to get your family from point A to point B in an amazing level of comfort.

The V-6 Motor – All versions of the new Caravan come equipped with Dodge’s proven Pentastar engine. The potent V-6 engine pumps out a hearty 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Although the Dodge Caravan will never be mistaken for a sports car, it can easily keep up with the typical family sedan. A six-speed automatic transmission comes standard.

Lovely Trims – Although minivans are typically known for their ability to haul a lot of passengers, the Caravan R/T also offers a quite sporty ride. Fitted with a sports-tuned suspension system and a set of high-performance tires, the R/T model is shockingly fun to drive. Unlike some of the other minivans that suffer from a lot of body roll, the Caravan R/T performs well on curvy roads.

You Can Easily See Out – “While the Dodge Caravan is available with driving aids such as a rear-view camera, some drivers may not even need them. When driving around on an everyday basis, the driver will benefit from the minivan’s superb outward visibility. A high seating position also gives the driver an outstanding view of the road. This helps to keep everyone secure.” -carbuyingstrategies.com

These are just a few things that make the Dodge Grand Caravan a really impressive vehicle to own and to drive. For more information on this delightful minivan, head to All Star today! Their team is ready to assist you in getting behind the wheel of this impressive automobile.

Ram 2500 4WD Tough

Los Angeles USA - November 19 2015: Ram 2500 Power Wagon on display during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Ram 2500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville

One of the very best truck manufacturers on the market today is Ram. They make strong and powerful trucks that can handle anything that you throw at them. Today we want to share with you some of great things about the Ram 2500 4WD. If you have any additional questions be sure to contact All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville.

It’s super tough – The 2015 Ram 2500 is clearly one of the toughest pickup trucks on the market. When working in a rugged environment, the truck’s tank-like build quality enables it to take a pounding. Owners can also look forward to an incredibly long service life. The truck’s overall durability gives it a big advantage over a regular pickup truck.

It’s got a Hemi – Over the last decade, the Hemi engine has reemerged as one of the most powerful V-8 engines on the market. With a total output of 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, the 6.4-liter engine provides plenty of muscle. When fitted with the proper towing accessories, the V8-powered Ram 2500 can tow up to 16,300 pounds.

It’s got diesel power – In terms of sheer power, the 6.7-liter Cummings diesel engine is a spectacular performer. With the assistance of a turbocharger, the beastly engine is able to pump out 370 horsepower and a monumental 800 pound-feet of torque. It can pull hefty loads with ease. In fact, the diesel-powered Ram 2500 has a towing capacity of nearly 18,000 pounds.

It’s a 4×4 – The truck’s capable 4WD system gives it an extra level of ruggedness. When traveling in snow or deep mud, the tires just keep churning. Drivers will find the enhanced traction to be extremely useful throughout the year. In an effort to enhance the truck’s versatility, Ram also designed the 2500 with a tow/haul mode.

A Hybrid for Families

NEW YORK - MARCH 23: A Chrysler Pacifica 2017 at the 2016 New York International Auto Show during Press day,  public show is running from March 25th through April 3, 2016 in New York, NY.

Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near Mehlville

There has been an increase in demand for electric and hybrid cars as of late. People want something that can be plugged in and drive them where they need to go without the use of fossil fuels. The problem has been that there are just no options for families. Most of the hybrids are just to small or too expensive to make them viable options for those who need to transport families. This was a problem, until now. Say hello to the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in!

This thing has been in the works for a while. We already knew it would have around 30 miles of all electric range. We already knew it would have seven (yes, seven!) passenger seats. And we already knew it would have all the fancy bells and whistles of a modern minivan.

“So far, however, pricing information has been pretty elusive. However, some very promising rumors have recently begun to circulate. According to both newsautospeed and NSEA Voice, the base level MSRP for adding the hybrid drivetrain is going to be in the mid-30ks. That means, after tax credits, we could be looking at a final cost of $29,000 or so.” -treehugger.com

Given that a 30-mile range will cover most about-town driving for many of us, and that the regular Pacifica gets 28 MPG highway, it seems reasonable to assume that most owners will save many hundreds of dollars each year in gas. (The always confusing MPGe rating is said to be 80.)

While we hope to see this model in the near future at our local All Star Chrysler near Mehlville. Their team would be happy to answer any questions that you might have as well as take you on a test drive of the existing Pacifica.

Here’s to You Mr. Washington!
