New Hydro Blue Ram Sure to Turn Heads

If blue is your favorite color, you’re going to love the new Dodge Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport. As the latest special edition to grace the Ram half-ton pickup line, the Hydro Blue Sport is an exciting addition for consumers looking for something special to buy this Holiday season. “The custom look and high-impact colors have been well-received in the marketplace and this new Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport will surely stand out on dealers’ lots and in customers’ driveways,” according to Ram brand chief Mike Manley. “Enthusiasts demand that their trucks get noticed and our Ram 1500 Sport lineup delivers a durable, powerful alternative with great visual appeal.” See the new Hydro Blue Ram and take a test drive when it arrives on the showroom floor at Chapman Dodge.

Final Special Edition for the Year

The Dodge Ram Hydro Blue Sport is the final special edition for this year. The Ignition Orange Ram kicked off the special editions at the end of 2016, followed by the Sublime Green and Copper special edition trucks. Along with the brilliant blue paint job, the new Hydro Blue Sport features a Sport grille in the same blue color with black Ram badging and a black billet insert. Flat black exterior badging on the body side and tailgate add to the contrast of the glossy blue. To complement all the black accessories, Dodge added black bezels around the projector headlamps and tail lights. Polished 20-inch wheels are standard on the four-wheel drive model, while the two-wheel drive versions come with oversized 22-inch wheels to make a real statement.

Stunning Interior Filled with Black and Blue

The colors black and blue are usually associated with something bad, but in the case of the Dodge Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport, that combination works to create a stunning interior. Heated black bucket seats are accented with Blue Sport embroidery, a color that carries over to the stitching on the instrument panel, door trim and heated steering wheel. Ram head logos in brilliant blue are on the side of the head rests, while blue anodized instrument panel bezels and console trim add just a touch of elegance. A black headliner tops off the interior package. Leather seating is an available option.

Expect Scarcity with Limited Production Run

Dodge has limited the production run of the 1500 Hydro Blue Sport to just 2,000 trucks, but the Hydro Blue pearl coat paint is an available option on other Ram trucks. To ensure you get a chance to buy one of these special editions, check in now with the pros at Chapman Dodge in Scottsdale.

As Jeep gets ready to ramp up production for the all new 2018 Wrangler, the company took some time to put employees of the Toledo Assembly Complex through a comprehensive training program that focused on eliminating waste, expanding employee knowledge and improving quality. “This training was unprecedented in size and scope,” according to Toledo plant manager Chuck Padden. “It would have been impossible for us to execute this training while also preparing for an important vehicle launch without the cooperation of the University of Toledo and Northwest Community College Staff.” The UT College of Business and Innovation developed a curriculum of hands-on activities to train production, skilled trades and salaried on quality, problem solving, safety and the organization of the workplace. One class had employees building a car with Legos to simulate how important it is to deliver parts on time. The culmination of all this effort will be the delivery of the all-new Jeep Wrangler to Chapman Jeep either late this year or early next year.

See it First at LA Auto Show

With the current JK Wrangler in production for the last decade, Jeep enthusiasts have been clamoring for a re-design. They’ll finally get to see their wish come true when the new JL model comes off the assembly line in late November. It will make its first appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show in early December and be delivered to dealers shortly thereafter. Expect demand to far exceed supply, so it would be a good idea to get in touch with the pros at Chapman Jeep now to express interest in the newest addition to the Jeep lineup. Although it will look much like the current Wrangler, early released pictures show a more bulbous nose, a much-improved interior and an overall more athletic design. Power window switches are moving to the dash to make removing the doors less of a hassle. Reports say that the new Wrangler will use much more aluminum in the construction, bringing a welcome increase in gas mileage. It’s rumored that the new Wrangler will initially come with the standard Pentastar V6 engine, but that a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine that produces more than 300 horsepower will be offered in the near future.

Toledo Plant Keeps Churning Out Wranglers

The intensive training sessions are just part of an overall 3.5 billion industrialization plan that Chrysler has to expand the Ram and Jeep brands. The Toledo plant will be adding 700 new jobs as part of the effort. Toledo has been the production site of the Jeep Wrangler for the past 75 years, churning out more than 2 million vehicles.

Already receiving rave reviews for its modern styling and performance, the Chrysler Pacifica now offers a brand-new attitude with the inception of the S Appearance Package, which features a heavy emphasis on black. Black paint, black accents and black wheels give the Pacifica a stealthy look and a little more street credibility. “The Chrysler Pacifica definitely stands out in the school drop-off line, and its class-leading style has won over many new customers,” according to Chrysler vehicle boss Tim Kuniskis. “The Pacifica’s S Appearance Package takes that style to the next level and offers our customers yet another unique personality that further differentiates Pacifica from the rest of the segment.” Check out the latest version of the Pacifica when you visit Chapman Chrysler in Scottsdale.

Black on Black on Black in New Package

If you like black or if you just like the idea of operating in a Batmobile-like environment, you’ll love the new Chrysler Pacifica S Appearance Package. Gloss black accents are distributed freely on the exterior, including around the grille, the eyebrows above the headlights and moldings all around. Black Noise is the name of the finish on the standard 18-inch wheels, while 20-inch wheels are also available. You can get a black roof rack as an option on the Touring Plus model, but standard on all other models that come with the S Appearance Package. The S Appearance Package is only an additional $595. The 20-inch Black Noise wheels are an additional $995.

Interior Subtle with Black on Grey

Slip into the interior of the new Chrysler Pacifica with the S Appearance Package and you’ll be surrounded by a sophisticated integration of black and Light Diesel Gray. The seats are black with gray accents and a prominent “S” logo. Gray stitching is prominent on the interior, including on the sport steering wheel. The rest of the interior is completely black, including the console, headliner, lighting bezels and visors.

Chrysler Re-invents Minivan

The Pacifica replaces the Chrysler Town and Country, which, along with the Dodge Grand Caravan, invented the minivan craze back in the 1980s. The new Pacifica offers class-leading fuel efficiency in its gasoline model, and even offers a hybrid for the ultimate in gas mileage. An optional Uconnect Theater keeps the passengers in the second and third rows occupied while you enjoy the rest of the technology, performance and comfortable ride. See the entire Chrysler Pacifica inventory and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Chrysler in Scottsdale.

 

Truck buyers with a love of the Southwest will absolutely adore the new Laramie Longhorn Southfork and Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver special editions of Dodge Ram trucks. Recently unveiled at the Texas State Fair, these two new Ram pickups bring southwestern styling to a whole new level with more technology, luxury and refinement. Visit Chapman Dodge to view the entire Dodge Ram inventory and take a test drive.

Laramie Longhorn Southfork Delivers Opulence

The new Laramie Longhorn Southfork version of the Dodge Ram truck is full of sophisticated offerings, including your choice of Canyon Brown or Light Frost Beige leather seats. Leather is in abundance in this luxury pickup, with wrappings around both the A and B pillars including the grab handles. The walnut-trimmed steering wheel is a nice touch, while a plush Greystone suede headliner and visors top off the luxury look. More walnut is sprinkled throughout the cabin in real wood accents, while Ruby Red stitching provides a sharp contrast to the seating material. “Along with increased capability, technology and efficiency, Ram is constantly looking for ways to create more comfort and refinement for our customers,” according to Ram Brand chief Mike Manley. “The new Laramie Longhorn Southfork edition is another example of how we deliver the most luxurious pickups in the industry.”

Lone Star Silver HD gets Premium Upgrades

The Lone Star Silver HD pickup is available on both the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 models and comes in either two- or four-wheel drive. You also get your choice of a powerful 5.7L HEMI, a monstrous 6.4L HEMI or the 6.7L Cummins diesel engine. As a bigger version of the Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver edition the new HD model includes a premium grille with mesh wave inserts, bright belt moldings and chrome side view mirrors. Polished 20-inch wheels provide a look of authority and front tow hooks come in handy to pull your friends out of tight spots. The Lone Star edition is built specifically for Texans and was designed by Texans. It is the best selling Ram model in Texas, having sold almost a quarter million vehicles since its debut.

Ram Continues to Beat the Competition

When you test drive a Dodge Ram truck at Chapman Dodge in Scottsdale, know that you’ll be looking at a truck brand that continues to beat the competition in a number of arenas. The Ram has the highest percentage of trucks sold in the last 30 years still on the road, has the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton truck, and offers best-in-class fuel economy. Ram trucks are designed to deliver what you need, whether that’s visiting the garden center on weekends or pulling a massive load up a mountain.

With the word “track” right there in its name, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk offers no surprises as the fastest production SUV on the planet. Engage launch control and rev the engine past what any reasonable driver might consider sensible and you’ll make all four tires scream on the way to a 3.7 second 0 to 60 mph run. Jeep says the Trackhawk will roar down the quarter mile in just 11.6 seconds, a number that would make the super powered muscle cars of the 1960s shudder with shame. With 707 horses rumbling under the hood, the Trackhawk is a testament to technology and the ability of Jeep to dream just a little bigger. Check in with the folks at Chapman Jeep to see when you might take a new Trackhawk for a test drive.

Launch Control gets Major Props

The aforementioned launch control is nothing but a button to the driver, but it leads to a complicated system that cuts the gas feed to each cylinder while you press on the brake and rev the engine. When you push the button, the blower on the supercharger builds up boost to 6.5 pounds per square inch, releasing all that energy once you take your foot off the brake. The result is what’s known in the drag racing industry as a “hole shot,” launching you off the line with a thunderous roar from the exhaust system.

Interior Built for Comfort

While vehicles built for racing usually shed unnecessary pounds to increase track times, Jeep recognizes that the Trackhawk will be used mostly as a daily driver. Jeep outfits the Trackhawk with the same plush interior as the Grand Cherokee SRT. There’s plenty of plush leather to go around, with big comfortable bolsters to hold you in place on those days when the daily driver turns into a track monster. Carbon fiber accents are not only beautiful, but help lighten the load to increase your track times. Jeep’s patented UConnect infotainment system lets you stream concert quality sound from your phone as well as make hands-free phone calls.

It’s All About the Power

Let’s not kid ourselves. If you’re looking at a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, chances are you heard about 700 plus horsepower and just had to see what kind of monster vehicle could house such an engine. The Trackhawk is a beautiful piece of design both inside and out that just happens to have more power than any other vehicle on the road. See it for yourself when you schedule a test drive at Chapman Jeep in Scottsdale.
