Stop by Chapman Dodge to see the overhauled 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 complete with a new suspension, 8-speed transmission and V6 engine. Innovative technological features make the Ram 1500 one of the most refined pickups on the road while elevating what is possible in a full-size pickup. Topping the list is a new 3.6-liter V6 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Ram  1500 will give the truck the best fuel economy and best tow rating of any V6 truck.

As for functionality, the Ram 1500 offers Regular, Quad and Crew Cab sizes. Regular cabs feature an 8-foot bed, while both the Quad and Crew Cab offer either a 5-ft 7-in or 6-ft 4-in bed, all of which can accommodate the Ram Box lockable side storage compartments and a removable bed cover. A spray-in bedliner is offered along with numerous tie-down and utility upgrades. Crew Cab models can now be equipped with a 6-ft 4-in bed.

Inside the pickup’s interior sets new standards in design and execution. Even the most basic models feature intricate door panels, comfortable and supportive seats and a sophisticated dash. On models equipped with the Torqueflite 8-speed transmission, a dash-mounted rotary gear selector replaces the console shifter to free up more space in the center console.

Visit a Phoenix Ram dealer to see all of the technological advances in the Ram 1500, including the available UConnect infotainment system and configurable LCD information screens. The UConnect system uses an 8.4-inch display screen, wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, streaming Bluetooth and voice recognition controls for the phone, texting, music, radio mode and navigation. The new system is also fully upgradeable, allowing Ram owners to keep current with the newest technology even as their vehicle grows old. If the owner desires, the design can even accommodate navigation added to the non-navigation UConnect 8.4 system at a later date. Multi-media input access for USB, SD card and auxiliary inputs are provided, as well as an available CD player in the center console. The Ram 1500 can also be equipped with a 7-inch multi-information screen that displays data in both text and graph form covering everything from digital speed readout to specific vehicle status information such as fuel economy, trailer towing information, outside temperature and trip data.

Other tech-minded features of note include available Alpine audio, adjustable air, Keyless Enter n’ Go, ParkView rear backup camera, ParkSense rear backup warning sensors, 911 assist, SmartBeam automatic high beam control, rain-sensing wipers and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.

Standard safety equipment includes front side thorax airbags and full-length side curtain airbags, as well as electronic traction and stability control, trailer sway control, hill-start assist and automatic reverse pinch protection on the windows and sunroof. Rain Brake Support uses the brake pads to occasionally brush water away from the rotors helping to keep them dry and better able to stop the vehicle.

Smaller really is better with the new Dodge Dart Aero, brought to you by Chapman Dodge. The 2013 model sports a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine instead of the regular 2.0-liter engine found in the base Dodge Dart model.

The best part? It gets up to 41 miles per gallon.

The Dart Aero is able to deliver such an improvement in fuel economy courtesy of a lower profile, underbody aero kit and low-rolling resistance tires and active grille shutters.

The grille shutters activate under certain conditions to redirect airflow around the front and down the sides of the vehicle, rather than through the engine compartment, lowering aerodynamic drag for improved efficiency.

Ring in your new year with a 2013 model that will satisfy the environment and your pocketbook – fluctuating gas prices won’t have anything on you, or your Dart Aero.

Better yet, the interior has as much to offer as the exterior. Your Dodge Dart Phoenix comes with auto headlamps, projector headlamps and LED ‘racetrack’ tail lamps, power mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control, and electronic stability control, TopSpeed said.

It also has a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, air conditioning, power windows and locks, and a touchscreen media center.

Amongst your long list of resolutions, be sure to add an investment to your future: A Dodge Dart Aero, a vehicle that will impress your friends, family and fellow drivers.

Why?

It’s sleek and quick, like a dart.
