New Demon a Beast Unlike Any Other

You can imagine the engineers at Dodge sitting around the break room one day, celebrating the release of the 707 horsepower Hellcat Challenger when the word came from above: “We Want More.” More horsepower, more performance, quicker times and a name that signifies this is indeed the beast of all beasts. Enter the Dodge Challenger Demon, boss of the Hellcat and every other production machine that dares to call itself a race car.

The Demon starts with the same basic Supercharged 6.2L HEMI engine as the Hellcat, but that’s where the differences start to mount. The Demon, which will be available through Chapman Dodge, has 25 major component upgrades from the Hellcat, including a new fuel injection system and strengthened rods and pistons to handle the increased horsepower. Where the Hellcat once ruled the horsepower world with an amazing 707 horses, the new Demon offers a somewhat unbelievable 840 horsepower. It is simply the most powerful production car ever offered in the United States.

With a functional Air-Grabber hood scoop that’s also the largest of any production car, the Dodge Demon has an air-flow of 1,150 cubic feet per minute, almost 20 percent greater than the Hellcat. Providing enough fuel to utilize all that oxygen was a challenge, which is why the Demon has two dual-stage fuel pumps vs. one for the Hellcat. By utilizing a power liquid-to-air chiller system, the Demon stays cool while achieving an incredible run of 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds.

If going vertical is one of your goals in life, you’ll be delighted to know that the Dodge Challenger Demon is also the first production car to be able to pull off a wheelie. Utilizing special drag radial tires that double the traction of traditional tires, when you fire up that monster engine and tromp on the gas, be prepared to see plenty of sky. Drag mode launch assist helps eliminate “tire stick” even when the conditions are not the best.

If you’re a fan of those Wednesday night “run what you brung” at the local race track, the new Demon will ensure you crush all comers. With a certified time of 9.65 seconds and top speed of 140.09 miles per hour, the Demon is also the world’s fasted production car in the quarter mile. There are also plenty of accessories, including a floor jack with a Demon logo and cordless impact wrench with the Dodge colors, that will help you stand out in the pits. The Demon is offered in a limited production run, so make sure you check in with the pros at Chapman Dodge now to see how you can get your hands on the real ultimate driving machine.

Revamped Compass Ready for Test Drive

New Powertrain Only Part of Upgrade

Now that the new Jeep Compass is ready for a test drive at Chapman Jeep, it might take you some time to appreciate all the upgrades from the previous model. The 2017 Compass is new from the ground up, with a new transmission, new engine and revamped all-wheel drive system that is ready to take on Arizona’s back country. With new safety and infotainment features, the 2017 Jeep Compass replaces the outgoing model as well as the Jeep Patriot. The new Compass comes outfitted with the popular Tigershark 2.4L four-cylinder engine that delivers 180 horsepower, plenty to propel this little beast. The all-wheel drive models come with a 9-speed automatic transmission that earns an EPA rating of 31 mpg on the highway. Front-wheel drive models are outfitted with 6-speed automatic transmission.

Motor Trend Likes Driveability

Although the Compass is made Jeep-tough to handle off-road trails, Motor Trend magazine liked the driveability of the little Jeep on the highway. “A fair amount of engineering effort went into ensuring the Compass is enjoyable to drive on the road,” they wrote. “The crossover was able to take corners very well while providing a comfortable ride and maintaining a good steering feel.” Car and Driver magazine says the new Jeep Compass is “more handsome and better proportioned” than the old model, comparing it favorably to the stylish Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Choose From Two All-wheel Drive Systems

Jeep engineered the new Compass to be the most dominating compact SUV in its category, offering two-different all-wheel drive systems from which to choose. Most people will be satisfied with the Jeep Active Drive system, which helps maintain control over most trails and while driving in ice and snow. Choose the Jeep Compass Trailhawk and you’ll receive Active Drive Low, which has a lower gear ratio to help power through those off-road moments where other vehicles might turn back. Increased ground clearance, skid plates and well-engineered approach and departure angles help you avoid getting hung up on nature’s obstacles.

Adventuresome Doesn’t Mean Uncomfortable

Take one look at the new Jeep Compass interior when you visit Chapman Jeep and you’ll be intrigued by the sculpted cabin that invites you to come in and sit awhile. With well-bolstered, cushy seats that help hold you in place when the going gets rough to the thoughtfully-placed controls that are within easy reach, the Jeep design team went the extra mile to make sure the new Compass is as comfortable as it is capable.

Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Most Powerful SUV

With world-class driving dynamics and a supercharged engine that delivers 707 horsepower and a spine-tingling 645 pound-feet of torque, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk will be the big dog SUV on the planet when it arrives at Chapman Jeep this fall. “Long recognized as the full-size SUV capability leader, Jeep Grand Cherokee is now the most powerful and quickest SUV as well, with the introduction of our new 707-horsepower Trackhawk,” according to Jeep executive Mike Manley. “The new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk delivers astounding performance numbers, backed by renowned SRT engineering that combines world-class on-road driving dynamics with luxury, refinement and an array of innovative advanced technology.”

Supercharged Engine Built to Handle Big Load

Matching the horsepower output of the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats, the supercharged engine in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is built tough to take punishment. The block is cast iron and features water channels between cylinders to help keep the engine cool. The crankshaft is made of forged steel to handle the extreme firing pressure unleashed by the supercharged motor. The pistons are high-strength and made out of forged alloys. The connecting rods are powdered forged and use carbon coated piston pins to withstand the load of all that power.

Five Driving Modes Fit your Driving Mood

Whether you just want a simple trip to work in the morning or decide to take on the Rubicon trail, the five driving modes in the new Trackhawk meet all your requirements. Auto adapts to whatever you and the road might throw at the Trackhawk on a particular day. The Sport mode reduces shift times and enables the paddle shifters to deliver increased performance. The Track setting engages the four-wheel-drive and suspension for ultimate performance. The Tow setting uses a 60/40 split of torque between the front and rear axles to produce the maximum towing performance. Finally, the Snow setting delivers the most traction with reduced horsepower to help you keep control in icy conditions.

Premium Interior Functional as Well

With soft-touch materials usually found in a premium luxury car, the interior of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is sophisticated and functional. The 8.4-inch touchscreen delivers a set of performance pages that let you dial in the information you need to improve track times. A new dynamometer screen delivers real-time horsepower results, along with the ability to save that information on a thumb drive. The powerful Trackhawk will not only be the most powerful SUV when it comes to Chapman Jeep this fall, but also the most technologically-advanced.

Jeep Unveils Concept Vehicles for Moab

When it comes to fulfilling off-road lovers’ dreams, no one does it better than Jeep for the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Now happening in Moab, Utah through April 16, the Safari is attended by thousands of off-roaders who enjoy a week of getting out on the trails along with seeing what America’s top trail company comes up with. This year, Jeep is supplying five concept vehicles that take off-roading to a whole other level. “It’s truly a labor of love for the Jeep team to develop exciting, capable concept vehicles each year for Moab and the Easter Jeep Safari,” said Mike Manley, Jeep Brand executive. “We look forward to the reaction and feedback from enthusiasts and our most loyal customers as these new Jeep concepts are put through their paces on the trails at Moab.” Although you can’t buy any of these concept vehicles at Chapman Jeep, you can score a great deal on a Trail-rated Jeep you can take to Moab to be part of the fun.

Grand One Celebrates Cherokee Birthday

The Jeep Grand One concept pays homage to the 1993 ZJ while celebrating the 25th birthday of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. With custom lace wheels, high clearance fenders and a wood grain treatment on the body, the Grand One stands out from the crowd. Large 33-inch tires and a 2-inch suspension kit give the Grand One a muscular stance with plenty of room to climb over obstacles.

Safari Brings Outdoors Inside

With a translucent roof panel, the Safari concept offers a new take on the Wrangler. A dual level cargo rack has a drone incorporated so you can scout locations and find the best angle of attack for those tough climbs. The Safari has “Windoors” that open like a cabinet, offering a unique point of entry.

Quicksand Made to Conquer the Dunes

Another Wrangler-based concept is the “Quicksand,” which was developed to take on the dunes. With a 392 HEMI engine providing the power, a staggered tire alignment and monstrous 37-inch rear tires provide all the thrust you need to take on the highest sand dunes.

Trailpass Adds to Trailhawk Capability

The Jeep Trailpass takes a Compass Trailhawk and adds a lift kit and larger wheels, along with some exterior accessories and leather seats to create a tough compact off-roader. The Switchback is an amalgamation of different Mopar and Jeep Performance parts stitched together to create the ultimate off-roader. The Jeep CJ66 may be the most impressive of all the concept vehicles, combining a Wrangler TJ frame with a CJ body and some JK elements. It all comes together under the power of a 5.7L crate HEMI to create a dominant off-road machine. If this whets your appetite to do some off-roading, check out the inventory today at Chapman Jeep.

Durango SRT Fastest SUV on Planet

First unveiled at the recent Chicago Auto Show, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT offers the most horsepower of any three-row SUV on the planet. With the time-tested 392 cubic inch HEMI engine pumping out 475 horsepower, the new Durango SRT will get you where you’re going quicker than any of its competitors. “The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV,” according to Fiat Chrysler America passenger car executive Tim Kuniskis. “This is what you get when you take everything great about the Durango and combine it with the performance of the Charger SRT: a 12-second quarter mile, toy-hauling, three-row muscle car.” Keep in touch with Chapman Dodge for the official arrival date, which will be sometime this fall.

Wicked Fast Durango Loaded With Performance Features

Maybe it’s the 4.4 second run from 0 to 60 mph that will make you fall in love with the new Durango SRT, or maybe it will be when you beat your friends on the strip while registering a 12.9 second quarter mile. For many folks who don’t spend a lot of time on the track, performance out on the highway is the true measure of a muscle car and the new Dodge Durango SRT is built to handle the nation’s most challenging highways. An eight-speed automatic transmission is designed and calibrated to get the most performance out of every gear while delivering the maximum fuel efficiency. A seven-mode driving system allows you to pick the mode that best suits conditions and your mood (Hint: choose Sport Mode to reduce shift times and deliver the maximum power to the rear wheels). Stiffer suspension and adaptive dampers also reduce body roll and help you glide through corners as if you were in a two-seat sportster.

Uncompromised Luxury and Utility Combined

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT not only sits at the top of the mountain when it comes to performance, but it also delivers a sophisticated interior that’s full of creature comforts. A hand-wrapped dashboard with silver stitching, performance steering wheel with paddle shifters and vented and heated seats in the first two rows offer just a taste of the attention to detail that runs throughout the cabin. You can choose the standard Nappa leather seats with suede inserts, but if you really want to show off your wild side consider the Demonic Red Laguna leather that includes embossed SRT logos. All customers who buy a new SRT from Chapman Dodge will not only receive a beast on wheels, but get a free day of training at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler.
