What’s New on the 2017 Chrysler 300

Chrysler 300 at All Star Chrysler near Ladue

The Chrysler 300 at All Star Chrysler near Ladue is a top sedan in its class. For the 2017 model year there was a few changes that we think are really spectacular – let’s take a look at look at the changes.

“Some of the highlights that might be the defining moment for the 300 sedan include an available all-wheel-drive, lots of standard features, satisfying technology and audio systems, upscale cabin, an exceptional quiet and supple ride, and a strong V8 power.”-newcarsreleasedates.com

Some of the novelties include unique commemorative touches, an upgraded suspension system, a few enhancements including but not limited to Siri Eyes Free, and tons of safety features available on a single package dubbed SafetyTec Plus.

Its combination of attitude and luxury helps overshadow the many large sedans already in the market. Indeed, we can reminisce its debut ten years ago and how it received the attention of its uniqueness and sophistication. Also for 2017, the 300 stays true to its roots but is now a bit subtle and refined.

Others might argue that some of its appeal comes from the available RWD platform and its V6 and V8 power offerings. But still, there is something vaguely imposing about this widely celebrated all-American sedan.

The full-size sedan comes in a walloping four trims: base 300 Limited, mid-trims 300S and 300C, and the top-of-the-line 2017 Chrysler 300 300C Platinum.

Standard features and equipment available on the base 2017 Chrysler 300 Limited include Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, an 8.4” touchscreen interface, automatic climate control, a USB port, voice controls, satellite radio, Siri Eyes Free, premium sound system, heated 8-way power front seats, keyless ignition and entry, a 60/40-splt folding rear setbacks, Wi-Fi hotspot, cruise control, daytime running lights, 17” alloy wheels, heated mirrors, optional 19” wheels, and leather upholstery.

Inside the Chrysler 200

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton

Though the Chrysler 200 is no longer in production, you can still get one of your own at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton.  Chrysler decided to discontinue this fun model for uncertain reasons, but we have a lot of reasons why we think that you will love the 200! Let’s take a look at the interior!

The Chrysler 200 seats five people. In any trim level, the best seats in the house are in the front, where there’s a decent amount of passenger room and comfortable cushions. (Some say that the 200’s sleek appearance cuts into seating space in the back seat, but we think that is subjective.)

If you want the look and feel of an upscale sedan but are working with a more modest budget, the Chrysler 200’s cabin will likely appeal to you. Standouts of its classy design include plenty of soft-touch materials, a sleek infotainment center (standard in all 200 models above the base LX), and a rotary knob to change gears.

“The Chrysler 200 doesn’t come up short for cargo space. Its 16-cubic-foot trunk is one of the largest in the class, besting those found in sedans like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. The 200 gives you enough space to haul several golf bags (each about 4 cubic feet) or luggage for a family trip (the average carry-on suitcase takes up about 1.4 cubic feet). When you want to haul over-sized items, you can fold down the 60/40 split rear seats (though the seats don’t lay completely flat).”-cars.usnews.com

Head to All Star today at take a look at the Chrysler 200. We are sure that the interior that the Chrysler 200 has to offer will surprise and impress you! Test drive the 200 and you are sure to want to get behind the wheel today!

Chrysler in the New Millennium

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near Wentzville

All month long, we have been bringing you the history of Chrysler as well as the history of some of their top vehicles. Today we want to take a look at the changes that Chrysler saw in the new millennium.

2000: The new millennium ushered in a decade of innovation and design accomplishments for Chrysler, most notably the launch of the iconic Chrysler 300C-the latest generation in a long pedigree of champion 300s built for excitement since 1955. When it was launched in 2005, the stunning 300C turned the eyes of the automotive world back to Detroit. And shone a new spotlight on great American design.

But the Chrysler 300C wasn’t the only shining example of Chrysler design innovation this decade-the introduction of the PT Cruiser fused modern amenities with a retro sensibility romanticizing an era of hot rod Model A wagons. And the decade was one of remarkable reinvention of the minivan. By the people who invented it. With the family flagship Town & Country receiving a host of technology and safety innovations to maintain its status as the minivan benchmark into the new millennium and beyond.

“Chrysler was founded on the philosophy of design with purpose. To build revolutionary new cars – affordable luxury vehicles known for their innovative, forward-thinking engineering. And it is their purpose today and for tomorrow. Their alliance with Fiat Group now gives us the competitive advantage of access to new technologies and advanced engineering solutions that further their mission.”-chrysler.com

You Family’s Safety is a Priority!

Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near Mehlville

When you are looking for the right vehicle for your family, we know that safety is your top priority. There are few vehicles that are safer than the Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near Mehlville. Today we are going to take a look at the different things that the Pacifica has to offer as well as its safety rating!

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica comes with a 287-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive. Fuel economy estimates are 18 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, which are good numbers for the class. Only one other vehicle can match the Pacifica’s fuel economy on the highway. The Pacifica feels faster than most rival minivans, so climbing hills or passing on the highway should be no issue. The only downside to the Pacifica’s V6 is that it isn’t quite as smooth as the V6 in the Honda Odyssey.

The Pacifica’s nine-speed transmission is based on one that is shared by many other vehicles, including the Jeep Cherokee. Reviewers have complained that other nine-speeds don’t shift smoothly and have so many gears that they have trouble finding the right one. However, the Pacifica’s transmission shifts with refinement.

“The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid minivan with a V6 engine and two electric motors. According to Chrysler, it can go up to 30 miles on battery power alone and achieves an mpg-e rating of 80 in combined city/highway driving. It’s due out later this year.”-usnews.com

The Chrysler Pacifica also has top safety ratings! It scores a top score in all areas as well as 4 to 5 stars! This is incredible for a vehicle!

Times of Change for Chrysler

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near IL

This month we have felt a bit reflective and have been taking a look at the history of our one of our favorite auto brands, Chrysler. Chrysler has seen a number of changes throughout the years; each time a change up happened, we got even better Chrysler Cars. One of the biggest periods of change was the late 1940’s through the early 1960’s.

The first indication of changing times at Chrysler came with the 1951 development, and enthusiastic reception, of the authoritative, hemispheric-head V-8 engine. The soon-to-be legendary HEMI combined better combustion, higher compression and lower heat loss to create much more horsepower than previous V-8s. Close behind was the fully automatic Powerflite transmission.

Chrysler then reaffirmed its engineering reputation by commissioning a revolutionary gas turbine engine program. This 27-year campaign to apply an aircraft engine turbine’s smooth power and low maintenance requirements to automobiles became part of the Chrysler brand’s folklore.

“Exner, a designer at Chrysler, revived Chrysler production car design with the sleek, sculptured Forward Look designs of 1955 that transformed the product line overnight. The Forward Look flagship was the 1955 Chrysler 300, a striking automobile that combined smooth styling with brawny HEMI power,” (chrysler.com). The 300, arguably the first muscle car, became a legend on and off the race track and set records throughout the 1950s, including a 143-mph performance at Daytona Beach. As the Fifties progressed, Chrysler products began to sprout distinctive tailfins, ostensibly to improve handling and stability above 70 miles per hour. The 1957 Chrysler brand standard-bearer, the 300C, was equipped with a standard 392-cubic-inch, 375-horsepower HEMI, two four-barrel carburetors, a high-output camshaft, Torsion-Aire suspension and the new Torqueflite transmission, making it the fastest, most powerful production car built in America that year and earning it the appellation “beautiful brute.”

A Storied History of the 300

Chrysler 300 at All Star Chrysler near Ballwin

The Chrysler 300 is known as the sleek and stylish leader of the Chrysler line up of vehicles. What you might not know is that is has a very interesting story behind its creation. We want to share part of this story with you today.

At age 37, Robert MacGregor Rodger was a 15-year veteran of Chrysler in 1953, and a member of the team that launched the corporation’s first Hemi V8 back in ’51. He was also, despite his relative youth, the chief engineer of the Chrysler Division. Heading into its third year, the Hemi had only grown stronger and tasted racing success in Briggs Cunningham’s C-2, C-4R and C-5R Le Mans racers. It was also starting to dominate the newly developing world of organized drag racing. Rodger was convinced that a standard 331-cubic-inch (5.4-liter) Hemi running one of Cunningham’s cams with solid lifters, dual four-barrel carbs and an 8.5-to-1 compression ratio could produce 300 reliable and civilized horsepower. But for all that, Chrysler didn’t really have a production car that seemed an appropriate showcase for such performance.

So Rodger proposed that Chrysler build a special car, a two-door hardtop, for the Hemi. “There wasn’t any budget for new sheet metal, so he bolted the top-of-the-line Imperial’s nose onto a New Yorker hardtop two-door body shell with Windsor model rear quarter panels to produce the 1955 300. Chrysler’s chief designer, Virgil Exner, tweaked the design by excising the Imperial’s massive front bumper in favor of the less ornate one used on the base Chrysler, and the 300 went into production.”-edmonds.com

Chrysler 200: A Replacement that Soared

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler near IL

The Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler near IL was initially brought in to replace the Chrysler Sebring and was so popular that it took off in an amazing way! We want to take a look back at the beginnings of the Chrysler 200.

The 200 name first appeared on a prototype hybrid vehicle shown at the 2009 North American Auto Show in Detroit and was called the 200C. It was later decided that the 200C as it was, was impractical.

“The first generation 200 was built from the Sebring platform in 2010, but included several cosmetic and powertrain changes. Chrysler’s new Pentastar 3.6 L V6 engine was offered along with a six-speed automatic transmission, generating 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Additional changes included stiffer body mounts, a softer ride rate, revised suspension geometry, a new rear sway bar, and upgraded tires.”-thenewswheel.com

The 200 also added more premium features than the Sebring, to include LED lighting, thicker seat cushioning, higher quality materials, and new standards to decrease noise, vibration, and harshness.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 is the second generation model, and was revealed to the public on January 13th, 2014. The 2015 model year has been built entirely from the ground up based on Chrysler’s Compact US Wide Platform.

The Chrysler 200 has grown to amazing popularity since its beginnings. We are sure that you will love this wonderful model too! Unfortunately, the Chrysler 200 is no longer in production, but you can still get a 200 at All Star. Their team will show you all of the features that the 200 has to offer and help you to select the model that will best compliment you driving lifestyle. Isn’t it time that you drive a stylish and capable sedan? Isn’t it time that you get a Chrysler 200?

Getting to Know Chrysler

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near Ellisville

We love the line of Chrysler Cars that you can find at All Star Chrysler near Ellisville. The sleek lines and timeless styling have always been the hallmarks of Chrysler, but we want to know all about when Chrysler got their start.

The first Chrysler was the 1924 Chrysler Six, an all-new car priced at $1,565 that featured two significant innovations – a light, powerful, high-compression six-cylinder engine and the first time four-wheel hydraulic brakes were standard on a passenger car. The well-equipped Chrysler Six also featured aluminum pistons, replaceable oil and air filters, full-pressure lubrication, tubular front axles, shock absorbers and indirect interior lighting.

Within a decade of its founding, Chrysler Corporation’s leadership in innovation had earned for it the label of Detroit’s “engineering company.” Chrysler’s list of early automotive “firsts” included Floating Power (a new method of mounting engines to isolate vibration), replaceable oil filters, downdraft carburetors and one-piece curved windshields.

The first indication of changing times at Chrysler came with the 1951 development, and enthusiastic reception, of the authoritative, hemispheric-head V-8 engine. The soon-to-be legendary HEMI combined better combustion, higher compression and lower heat loss to create much more horsepower than previous V-8s. Close behind was the fully automatic Powerflite transmission.

“Chrysler then reaffirmed its engineering reputation by commissioning a revolutionary gas turbine engine program. This 27-year campaign to apply an aircraft engine turbine’s smooth power and low maintenance requirements to automobiles became part of the Chrysler brand’s folklore.”-chrysler.com

For nearly one hundred years, Chrysler has been an innovator in the automotive world and we hope they will continue to innovate and create the latest and greatest cars.
