The 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab Edition was built with the mountainous trails of Moab Utah in mind. It is perfect for off-road enthusiasts who are looking for a ride that can withstand the toughest trails. Here are some of its key features:
Pentastar® V6 This engine is designed for off-roading. It has a revised throttle body, a rear-facing alternator, and a snake-like belt that avoids water and mud. The Mopar® power-dome hood with custom black decals gives a glimpse of this powerful monster.
Sunrider® Soft Top Forget the hardtop! This wrangler comes standard with a dust-resistant soft top that allows you to enjoy the sun while on the trail. The new Lift Assist feature makes it even easier to lower the top. Hardtops are also an option.
Dana 44 This standard rear axle makes off-roading possible. It’s Tru-Lok® optional capability helps distribute power evenly between the rear wheels to give you the utmost traction.
Command-Trac® 4WD This four-wheel drive system gives you complete control of your vehicle no matter where you drive it. It comes standard with a Trac-Lok® limited slip rear differential for added traction in the absence of the Tru-Lok® Locker. Find out more about these features at Chapman Dodge.
Mopar® Rock Rails These satin black rails made of heavy gauge steel tubing protect the lower sides of your wrangler so you don’t have to worry when you venture out on the rockiest trails.
Kevlar® Tires The Moab Edition is equipped with exclusive Goodyear Silent Armor tires and black Rubicon 17-inch wheels that are tough enough for off-roading.
Mopar® Slush Mats Go ahead, get dirty! The deep grooves on these mats capture water, mud and snow so that it doesn’t ruin the carpet. They are removable and easy to clean.
Garmin® Navigation Don’t get lost! The “bread crumb” feature keeps track of your destinations so you can see where you are and where you’ve been. It can also display temperatures, fuel economy, distance to empty, tire pressures and has a digital compass.

There is a wide range of financing alternatives for customers in search of a new automobile. Of course you can pay cash, but for many if not most that choice involves factors such as the annual percentage rate and a “cash back” incentive. Cash back is a popular enticement that dealerships offer in order to encourage people to buy a new vehicle. While these offers seem like a good deal, potential buyers should weigh other factors to determine if the cash-back incentive makes the most financial sense. Here are a few common options explained:
Cash-back incentives typically are offered by the car manufacturer as a cash-back reward for people who buy a new car. For example, a consumer goes to buy a new 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 from a Chapman Dodge dealer, and agrees to a financing plan they will then receive a $2000 ‘cash-back’ incentive to use as part of the cars down payment. Ultimately the cash back in conjunction with whatever discounts will allow the cars price tag to come down thousands of dollars for the consumer.
A new car is a major purchase, and few people pay cash for it. Most consumers obtain a loan to buy a new car or finance the purchase through the manufacturer or a financing department. A car loan, like any loan, comes with interest rates, known as an annual percentage rate, or APR. For example a consumer could get a 2012 Chrysler 300 C for an APR of 0% on a 60-month lease.
Low APR or Cash Back?
Some car manufacturers offer a combination of cash back and a low interest rate. Some of these offers are either/or, meaning the consumer may choose either the cash-back reward or the low interest rate, while others offer both cash back and low interest. For example, as in the previous example of the 2012 Chrysler 300C the customer could chose either the 0% APR or a rebate of $3,750.
If a Scottsdale Dodge consumer is faced with the decision of purchasing a new car with a cash-back incentive or a low APR, they must perform a few calculations. There are several automobile websites that offer calculators that help with this task. For example, if you’re offered $5,000 cash back or a 1.0 percent APR on a 48-month loan for purchase of $24,230—with no trade-in or cash down—you’ll save $13 per month by choosing the low financing over the cash-back offer.
Cash Purchase vs Low APR:
Another option for Arizona car buyers is to skip financing altogether and pay for a car in cash. Buying a car in with cash saves you money in the long run as you don’t have to pay interest, but it also takes a lot of money out of your pocket. As long as you aren’t taking money out of your emergency funds or selling other assets to purchase the car, buying a car with cash is often a good option.

Strong sales have put automakers in the power seat this summer, which means consumers will likely see sparser deals than in previous years. Still, there are a few bright spots for buyers. Cheap and more widely available credit has led to favorable financing deals, and high vehicle-resale values have helped dealerships push cheap leases. Plus, there are still a few cash deals. Here is where drivers in the market for a new car can still find bargains:
Leases. “Right now, we’re seeing the most attractive leases across the board that we’ve seen in a number of years,” says Alec Gutierrez, a senior market analyst at auto-pricing publisher Kelley Blue Book. Leasing payments often factor in a vehicle’s expected resale price, and used-car values have been rising, he says. That encourages manufacturers to drop lease prices, even to the point where they beat financing deals for buyers.
Low-rate financing. Consumers who want to hang on to a vehicle for more than a few years may find that financing is still the better deal, Caldwell says. “There are lots of 0% offers, because credit is cheap,” she says.
Consider: Scottsdale Dodge is now offering no payment for 90 days and and 0% APR for 72 months on Avengers and Chrysler 300′s.
Big vehicles. Larger SUVs and trucks typically have the biggest cash rebates, and this year is no exception, says Jesse Toprak, the vice president of market intelligence at TrueCar, an auto-pricing website. Those categories don’t typically do well when gasoline prices are high and face increased competition from new crossovers that mix size and efficiency, he says.
Bigger vehicles account for the bulk of autos with cash incentives of $1,500 or more right now, for example Jeep Liberty has a $3,500 enticement.
Model redesigns. If price is more important to you than style, look for a car that is set to be redesigned in its next model year, Merrihew says. Incentives typically are better than on recently redesigned models because the look isn’t as fresh. There often is more room to negotiate, too. “The downside is, it will look like yesterday’s news pretty quickly,” he says.
Consider: Jeep Wrangler Phoenix dealers have great deals on the 2012 Jeep Wrangler since the 2013 model has just hit showroom floors. The MSRP on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler is $24,575 but with a $1000 cash bonus and $843 drop in price, one can be yours for only $22,732.
Hall Brothers racing is a Dodge sponsored racing team that is made up of the unique duo Raminator and Rammunition.
Both Raminator and Rammunition have 565 cubic-inch supercharged Hemi engines that can certainly take care of business, and the competition. The team is made up of Tim, Mat and their crew. According to their website, Tim Hall is now a four time MTRA “Mechanic of the Year,” while Mark Hall’s number of times winning the “Driver of the Year” award has increased to a record seven times. Raminator has won the coveted “Truck of the Year” six times as well. Add seventeen season point championships to this list and it makes for some pretty impressive stats.
Mark Hall was quoted saying, “You can never let your past success go to your head. We run against some great competition, and it is always anybody’s race. We just have to keep doing the best we can and see what happens.” Tim Hall agrees. “We have a lot of power in our trucks and great drivers in the seats. Our team feels very fortunate with our achievements and we just have to keep doing what we do!”
Mark Hall believes it takes far more than just winning races to be considered a true champion. He says it takes someone who is driven and truly enjoys the sport. Mark is the pilot of the famed Dodge Raminator. Hall not only races in a number of series and special events, but travels the country doing dealer appearances and charity functions.
Ram truck Phoenix fans should know that Raminator and Rammunition are both among the most feared opponents in racing. The Dodge factory backs both trucks and has allowed for significant performance gains, especially for the engines. Horsepower is the main advantage to the Dodge team since it translates directly into high-flying freestyles. The team is especially notable for ending Bigfoot’s run in the ProMT and the Special Events series, Bigfoot is a Ford backed racing truck.
