Now’s the Time to Deal on 2016 Models
If you’ve had your eye on the popular Dodge Journey SUV, there’s no better time than the present to head over to Chapman Dodge and get a great deal on select 2016 models. Dodge is offering 20 percent off the MSRP on some Journeys, which adds up to an average of $6,400 off the sticker price. With an available V6 engine that produces 283 horsepower, this versatile trooper can carry up to seven adults with ease. Efficiency ratings are as high as 26 miles per gallon, making the Dodge Journey a great choice for a daily driver or occasional road trip. With a range of up to 500 miles per tank, you’ll make great time on those Phoenix to Los Angeles runs.
Choose From Extra Power or Efficiency
The 3.6L Pentastar V6 motor is the workhorse of the Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep lineup, powering everything from the iconic off-road Wrangler to full-size Ram Pickups. It makes sense that Dodge chose this engine as the power option in the Journey, making the SUV strong enough to tow good-size recreational vehicles while maintaining excellent gas mileage. If you want a little more efficiency, opt for the 16-valve 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. Dodge has tuned the engine and transmission to provide plenty of torque while still ranking among the leaders in its class for fuel mileage.
Pile in the Cargo, There’s Plenty of Room
Whether you choose to haul 7 people or some combination of people and stuff, the Dodge Journey has plenty of room with 67 cubic feet of cargo space. The incredibly versatile interior is not only comfortable, but the fold-flat front passenger seat optimizes the cargo space. Fold the rear seats down and you can even fit a kayak inside. Keep the seats up and there’s plenty of room for your softball team including all the bats and balls. The second row conveniently slides back and forth to allow for more legroom in the rear. The Dodge Journey is the only vehicle in its class to provide second row child booster seats. Use the seat when your child is with you, or fold it away neatly when an adult needs the space.
Need More Room? Try the Roof
The roof of the Dodge Journey is an impressive 4 by 8 feet, allowing you to tie everything from bicycles and skis to tents and mattresses to the sturdy roof rails. With a 20 percent discount on select models, there’s really no reason not to head to Chapman Dodge and see how the 2016 Dodge Journey can solve all your cargo and people hauling needs.
Chrysler’s New Model Excels
It’s been more than 30 years since Chrysler took the auto world by storm with the introduction of its sibling minivans. Under the direction of famed auto chief Lee Iacocca, the Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Caravan sold more than 200,000 units that first year and have been steady sellers ever since. Aside from some upgraded trim and a few other changes, the Town and Country has been pretty much the same vehicle as the Caravan for most of those 30 years. That ends now with the introduction of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Replacing the reliable Town and Country, the Pacifica hopes to regain some of the momentum from those earlier years that has been lost to the SUV market. You can see the improvements with an inspection and test drive by visiting Chapman Chrysler in Scottsdale.
Pacifica Poised to ‘Slug it Out’ for Market Share
Although the other big two of Detroit have dropped out of the minivan market, competition from Honda, Toyota and even Kia has driven Chrysler to rethink the product. The result of that rethinking is a people and stuff hauler that has tons of creature comforts with innovations like foot-operated sliding doors, heated seats in the second row and touchscreen mounted on the rear of the driver and front passenger seat. A sculpted design with a definite aerodynamic look moves away from the standard box minivan format in a desire to lure young families who may shy away from the “soccer mom” designation of past minivan drivers. Car and Driver magazine calls the Chrysler Pacifica the “best looking minivan on the market,” adding that Chrysler is poised to “slug it out against the best of the competition.”
Dependable V6 Provides Plenty of Power
If there’s one thing that links the entire Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep lineup, it’s the time-proven Pentastar V6 engine. That’s the motor that powers everything from coupes and sedans to the Wrangler. The version that’s in the Pacifica produces 287 horsepower. When matched up with a seamless 9-speed automatic, it produces plenty of power for passing trucks or making freeway merges. For those keeping score, it also completes the 0-60 mph run in 7.3 seconds, which is quicker than any of its competitors. Stay tuned later this year for a hybrid model.
Enjoy Good Handling and Comfortable Ride
Car and Driver editors are impressed with the Pacifica’s responsive handling and ease maneuvering through tight urban areas. Well-tuned dampers help it soak up highway bumps with little impact on passengers. Head over to your Scottsdale Chrysler dealer, Chapman Chrysler, to see all of the industry firsts included in the Pacifica. Don’t overlook the onboard vacuum cleaner, a must after spending a few days on a long road trip during summer vacation.
Blackout Starts With Sport Edition
Black is the new black in the auto industry, with different automakers offering “stealth” versions of pickups and muscle cars. When looking for your midnight cruiser to silently travel the streets of your city, don’t forget about Dodge. The new Dodge Ram Night Edition dresses up a Sport trim level pickup with a glossy black grille, 20-inch black aluminum wheels, black badging and a black performance hood. You can get the new Ram Night Edition in any cab configuration, making it a good choice for a work truck during the day and play truck at night. You can actually get the black trim package in different colors, but if you really want to go unnoticed in the night, make sure you get the Brilliant Black Crystal paint job. Check in with Chapman Dodge to see about getting a look at the new Ram Night Edition.
Choose Your Power Package
The Ram Night Edition comes standard with the popular 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine that is used widely across the Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler vehicle lineup. This powerful motor puts out 305 horsepower while still producing 25 mpg on the highway. If you want more power, opt for the 5.7L HEMI V8 that generates 395 horses and 410 pound-feet of torque. The HEMI engine also has fuel-saver technology that shuts down cylinders when you’re cruising on the highway. It’s rated at 22 mpg on the highway. “Much like our incredibly successful Ram Rebel, the Ram 1500 Night fills the growing customer demand for factory-custom trucks,” according to the Ram Brand boss, Mike Manley. “Truck enthusiasts want vehicles that define their personality and style. The new Ram Night package builds upon the Ram Sport – one of the best looking trucks on the road – and adds black-out details that customer truck enthusiasts revere.”
Ram Provides Eight Different Trim Packages
From the basic Tradesman pickup that fills the needs of many people to the top-of-the line Limited with all the bells and whistles, Dodge Ram Trucks have a trim package for everyone. Now is the time to head to Chapman Dodge and take advantage of huge savings on 2016 models as they need to clear room for the new model year. You can get up to 20 percent off the MSRP of select Ram trucks, which averages almost $12,000 in savings. Remember that Ram is the only half-ton truck line that offers a diesel engine as an option.
Dream Cruise Unveils Upgraded Nameplates
Dodge took the opportunity to excite a large throng of Mopar fans coming to the annual Woodward Dream Cruise by revealing its latest two muscle car brands. The 2017 Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona add to the company’s already impressive sports lineup. The coupe and sedan pump up the horsepower the historic V8 HEMI delivers by using new exhaust and induction technology. The chassis and suspension have also been improved to provide impressive handling and braking. “More than 1.5 million enthusiasts are expected to come to Woodward to celebrate classic muscle cars this week, so it’s a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona with new special editions,” said Dodge passenger car chief Tim Kuniskis. “We’ll continue to celebrate the brand’s muscle car performance with another special-edition announcement later this fall.” Check in often with Chapman Dodge to see when the new Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona will be available for a test drive.
Challenger Pays Homage to 1970 Limited Edition
Only 2,399 Dodge Challenger T/A models were built in 1970, intended to be used in a Trans Am racing series. The new T/A starts with the Challenger R/T model then starts adding equipment to boost the performance. Along with a modified hood scoop to feed the engine with cold air, the new T/A has a high performance exhaust system, wide Mopar wheels, a lowered suspension, Bilstein shocks and the ability to select from three different electronic stability control calibrations. The T/A comes with a 6-speed manual, but an 8-speed automatic transmission is also an option. Fuel saver technology cuts the cylinder usage in half when you’re out cruising at highway speeds. The Challenger T/A also has a “Plus” model that offers a more refined interior with leather seats, upgraded sound system and much more.
Daytona Delivers for People Who Need 4 Doors
The Dodge Charger Daytona is named after the 1969 model, which was limited to a little more than 500 units to be used on the NASCAR circuit. Like the Challenger, it builds off the R/T model with upgraded intake and exhaust, a performance suspension and electronic stability features to help keep it under control. The Daytona engine controller limits the top speed to 150 mph. Both the Challenger and Charger utilize Dodge’s proven High Impact Paint to provide a special flair you won’t find in any other automaker. Stop by Chapman Dodge when these two models arrive to see colors such as Green Go, Yellow Jacket, Go Mango and TorRed.
SXT Blacktop Edition Efficient and Fun
Although the Dodge Charger SXT Blacktop engine doesn’t offer enormous horsepower, the four-door sedan with the muscle car heritage still provides a sexy option for people who need a family car but aren’t quite ready for the minivan route. Car and Driver magazine says the SXT Blacktop has “top-notch” handling “with excellent grip in sharp, quick corners and stiff steering.” Sounds like the perfect car for the weekday commute with a few wild weekends thrown in. Powered by the workhorse Pentastar V6 engine that is widely used across the Chrysler product line, the SXT Blacktop delivers 300 horses. It takes just 6.4 seconds to make the run from 0 to 60 mph and whizzes through the quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds. While those aren’t numbers to make its Hellcat brother recoil in fear, they’re certainly respectable for a family sedan. Drive the SXT Blacktop edition today at your Scottsdale Dodge dealer, Chapman Dodge.
Interior Design has Comfort in Mind
With thick, comfortable seats that have bolster to hold you in place, the Dodge Charger SXT Blacktop edition is designed both for long trips and keeping everyone secure as you race around corners. Plenty of sound insulation keeps the road noise on the outside so you can have a conversation or use the powerful stereo system to listen to your tunes. Steering wheel controls let you change channels or use the hands-free communication system for text messaging and phone calls so you can keep your eyes on the road. The SXT Blacktop edition comes in a variety of colors such as the stunning Blue Pearl or Red Tor. Large 20-inch black rims, a satin black spoiler and interior accents set this Charger apart from other models.
Bad Muscle Car Set Tone for Style
With its crisply chiseled body sculpture, aggressive hood scoop and overall nasty-looking disposition, the new Charger hearkens back to the original muscle car days of the late 1960s. As one of the most popular collector cars, the early Charger was a bad machine noted for trouncing opponents both on the street and track. There have been some modifications, of course, including the LED racetrack tail lamp that waves goodbye to all those you vanquish.
Wide Charger Lineup Gives You Plenty of Choice
Whether you just want the look of the Charger without all the power, or feel you need to tame the 707-horsepower Hellcat, the Dodge Charger has plenty of options and price points. The base SE starts at just $27,995. You start to move up the power ladder with the 370 horsepower R/T and then continue climbing with the R/T Scat Pack, which produces 485 horses. Only the supercharged Hellcat offers more power. View the entire Charger lineup today by taking a trip to Chapman Dodge.
