When you are shopping for a Chrysler 200, you are sure to wonder what the safety features might look like on the top models. Today we want to take a look at the different safety features offered on the Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton.

The Chrysler 200 comes standard with traction and stability control, antilock brakes, front side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. A rearview camera is optional on the base LX and standard on other trims.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash testing, the 200 earned the top score of Good in the moderate-overlap front-impact, small-overlap front-impact, side-impact, roof strength and head restraint (whiplash protection) tests. Also in IIHS testing, the effectiveness of the 200’s optional frontal collision warning and automatic braking systems earned a top rating of Superior. IIHS also named the 200 a Top Safety Pick+. (This information was compiled from edmunds.com and chrysler.com.)

“During Edmunds testing, a 200S AWD came to a stop from 60 mph in 119 feet, a bit better than average for this segment. However, a four-cylinder 200 Limited required a longer 129 feet.”-edmunds.com

FCA Going Electric

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near O’Fallon

It is no secret that electric vehicles are leading the way into the future. We are seeing a bigger shift towards electric vehicles from all auto manufacturers, but one that we are particularly interested is FCA. Today we want to take a look at their shift towards electric cars.

There’s nothing that will prevent an OEM from engaging in the type of development work that Tesla has done so far. We have been—as you well know, we have been reluctant to embrace that avenue until we saw a clear—a path forward.

I think we’re now in a position to acknowledge at least one of our brands and in particular Maserati will, when it completes the development of its next two models effectively switch all of its portfolio to electrification.

And as these products come up for renewal post 2019, it will start launching vehicles, which are all electric and which will embody, I think, what we consider to be state-of-the-art technology.

The Fiat 500e electric car, while popular for its low prices and nippy handling, remains a compliance car sold only in California, and has had no significant upgrades in the six years since its launch in 2012.

“Much of the powertrain and battery technology for that vehicle was developed by parts supplier Bosch, working together with the Chrysler engineers. FCA’s next plug-in vehicle, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan, only started deliveries this year, though it has received excellent reviews despite a recall for a faulty part that has temporarily halted production.”-greencarreports.com

Chrysler Through the Years

New Chrysler Cars at All Star Chrysler near Fenton

Chrysler has been around for a long time and the team at All Star Chrysler near Fenton is proud to be a part of the long tradition. Today we want to take a look at some of the early accomplishments of the Chrysler corporation. You can always check out the latest Chrysler Cars at All Star today!

Walter P. Chrysler joined the Maxwell Motors Company in 1920 and five years later the company was reintroduced as Chrysler Corporation with their flagship car, the Chrysler six. 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.

“Chrysler entered a higher level of competition with its richly appointed Imperial series. With a custom-built body from LeBaron or Briggs, a 145-inch-wheelbase chassis, a 125-horsepower engine and a price tag of $3,145, a typical Imperial of the early 1930s rivaled a Duesenberg in style, but cost only about a third as much!”-chrysler.com

While Chrysler is now a part of a larger overall company, FCA, they have not lost sight of where they came from. Become part of the Chrysler legacy when you purchase one of the many Chrysler Cars at All Star. Join the nearly hundred year history!

Subtle Pacifica Changes for 2018

Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near North County

In 2017, Chrysler took our preconceived notions of minivans and turned them on their heads to bring us the Chrysler Pacifica. This minivan was more of a crossover than the minivan we expected and we were thrilled! Since the Pacifica is so new, we don’t expect to see any major changes for the 2018 model year, but there will be some subtle changes. Changes that, once they take place, you will be able to see on the different Pacifica models at All Star Chrysler near North County.

We expect no changes to the look or feel of the 2018 Pacifica. This shouldn’t be an issue, given the modern looks of this new minivan. We also expect the interior to remain unchanged, as it’ll continue with its upscale feel, roomy third row, and tons of available luxury features.

We also expect no changes to the Pacifica’s standard features. If this proves accurate, it will come standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, three-zone climate control, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, a 5-inch touchscreen with rearview camera, and a six-speaker audio system.

The powertrain is another area we expect no changes, so we anticipate seeing the same 3.6-liter V6 with 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission that delivers power to the front wheels. The Pacifica Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid producing 260 hp, a 33-mile EV range, and an 84 mpg-e combined fuel-economy rating.”-carsdirect.com

We do expect a few subtle changes in regards to the options and packages that are additional to different trim levels. (This model will be considered a carryover, that means very few changes from the prior year.)

Self-Driving Chrysler Pacificas a Realilty!

Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near St. Peters

It is an amazing time in the auto industry! There is now news that Google and Chrysler have paired up to create self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans! While you cannot get the autonomous Chrysler Pacifica at All Star Chrysler near St. Peters right now, (but who knows-it may be sooner than we think) we want to talk a little bit about what we heard about these self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans.

Fiat Chrysler and Google for the first time will offer rides to the public in the self-driving automobiles they are building under an expanding partnership.

The companies announced in the spring of last year that they would build 100 self-driving Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivans. Those vehicles have been tested in Arizona, California and Michigan. “Waymo, Google’s self-driving car project, said it will allow hundreds of people in Phoenix to take rides in the vehicles so that it can get feedback on the experience. People can apply on Waymo’s website. The company also said that it’s expanding its fleet to 500 Pacifica hybrids.”-driving.ca

Waymo said it wants to learn where people want to go in a self-driving vehicle, how they communicate with it and what kinds of information and controls they want.

Fiat Chrysler builds the Pacifica minivan in Windsor, Ontario, just across the border from Detroit. It adds Waymo’s self-driving software and hardware, including sensors and cameras, at a facility in Michigan. Fiat Chrysler’s U.S. headquarters is in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

“This collaboration is helping both companies learn how to bring self-driving cars to market, and realize the safety and mobility benefits of this technology,” said Waymo chief John Krafcik in a company release.
