Switch From People to Cargo in Seconds

Whether you need to haul seven full-size people or your latest load to sell at the Farmer’s Market, the Dodge Grand Caravan is the most versatile minivan on the market. With patented Stow ‘n Go seating, the Caravan transforms from a bus ready for a road trip with friends to a delivery van with a whopping 143 cubic feet of storage room. Boxes, ladders, bikes, golf clubs – you name it and the Dodge Caravan can easily transport it from one place to another. Stop by Chapman Dodge and ask for a demonstration on just how easy it is to transform the Caravan from a van full of seats to an empty cargo hauler.

Not an ‘All or Nothing’ Proposition

From the 60/40 third row bench seat to the two captain’s chairs in the second row, each seat folds independently into the floor. Need to haul six people and a bunch of sports equipment? No problem, just fold down the single seat in the rear and get a ton more room. The flexibility of the Dodge Grand Caravan interior makes it perfect for tailgating, camping, long road trips or whatever your imagination can create. Need a van for business during the day but also something for the family on nights and weekends? The Dodge Caravan is the perfect mix of work and play.

Hidden Storage Spots Come in Handy

Along with the versatility of the Stow ‘n Go seating, the Dodge Grand Caravan also has a few hidden spots where you can hide your treasures. In front of the second row Captain’s Chairs, just lift up the flap and there are bins in the floor that give an extra 12 cubic feet of storage. There’s also a storage well behind the third row seats, and bins in the center console and on the ceiling above the rear view mirror. Along with multiple cup holders and plenty of charging stations, these make the Caravan the perfect vehicle for fun road trips.

Dual Climate Control, Power Doors Make Life Easy

Just push a button on your key fob and watch the rear tailgate go up or either of the power sliding doors open. The driver controls the doors from his seat, with a button to lock all doors to keep kids from horsing around. Three zone climate control makes the driver seat, passenger seat and rear area as comfortable as possible for all individuals involved. Power front seats that adjust to multiple positions help relieve stress on the back and lower legs during long trips. The Dodge Grand Caravan is really an amazing engineering feat, which you can see for yourself with a trip to Chapman Dodge.


Entire Lineup Dressed in Green and Bronze

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Jeep name, the company has gone hog wild with green paint and bronze accents. The Wrangler, Renegade, Grand Cherokee, Patriot and Compass all have special 75th Anniversary editions. Although different shades of green that pay homage to Jeep’s military roots are the special shades for the celebration, you can pick a number of other colors as well. Bronze bumpers, wheels and other trim accentuate the green for a stunning visual effect. Stop by your Scottsdale Jeep dealer, Chapman Jeep, today to inquire on when the 75th Anniversary Jeeps will be on the showroom floor.

Wrangler Anniversary Edition Includes Leather, Dome Hood

Set your Wrangler or Wrangler Unlimited apart from the crowd with a bevy of special features in the Anniversary edition. Along with the special paint and wheels, both versions of the Wrangler get a raised dome hood, leather seats and special rock rails. They also come with the Command-Track 4×4 system and a transfer case and rear axle setup geared to take on the toughest trails. Seat heaters and a touchscreen infotainment system provide the creature comforts.

Cherokee, Grand Cherokee Share Anniversary Elements

Both the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee Anniversary editions share features like tangerine stitching on the seats with embroidered anniversary logos, sunroof and touchscreen audio system. Both have special 18-inch wheels, although you can opt for 20-inch rims on the Grand Cherokee. Special bronze grille rings, fog lamp bezels, fascia trim and badges all add to the special look for both these vehicles.

Smaller Jeeps Celebrate Anniversary in Style

Both the 75th Anniversary Compass and Patriot are decked out in Recon Green. The Compass comes with bronze tow hooks, roof rails, step pad, 18-inch wheels and badging. You also get a power sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel and power sunroof. The Patriot has the same features as the Sport model and comes with the same features as the Compass. The Renegade, Jeep’s newest little SUV, celebrates the special occasion in Jungle Green. Grille surrounds, wheels, fog lamp bezels, badges and some other trim are all bronze. It also has a Beats audio system to make those long drives just a little more palatable. Stop by Chapman Jeep to get more information on these special Jeep models.

Willys First Production Jeeps Born in 1941

The first mass production Jeeps were the result of a military need for small, tough vehicles that could travel through any terrain. Although a company named Bantam actually made the first Jeep prototype, the military thought it was too small of an organization to provide the quantity needed and supplied the contract to Willys and Ford. The origin of the Jeep name is thought to be a version of the acronym for “General Purpose.” Thus, GP became Jeep, which is synonymous with off-road driving today.

Cash Reimbursement Helps Pay Cost of Outfitting

Any time someone buys or leases a new vehicle from any Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram or Fiat dealership, Chrysler will provide a cash reimbursement to help pay the cost of installing necessary equipment to help either a disabled driver or passenger. The maximum reimbursement is $1000 per vehicle, with a sliding scale of funds depending on the modifications needed. All vehicles are eligible with the exception of the Viper, Dart SE and Grand Cherokee SRT. If you are in need of a specialized vehicle, visit your Chrysler in Scottsdale dealer, Chapman Dodge and talk to one of the sales managers. Chrysler will not only help you finance the vehicle, but will also help with the financing of the special equipment and installation.

Contact Installer Before Purchasing

Prior to purchasing any vehicle, you should contact a specialized adaptive equipment installer to make sure the car, truck or van is compatible with the necessary modifications. Go to to secure an application, which you can then submit along with a doctor’s written prescription or note acknowledging the need for the modification. You’ll also need to submit a copy of the installer’s paid invoice, a copy of the buyer’s agreement for the vehicle, and a copy of the vehicle registration before you can receive your reimbursement. Make sure the equipment is installed within six months of the initial purchase or lease to qualify for the money back.

Specialized Vehicles Help Disabled Lead More Normal Life

The ability to independently travel wherever you want to go is something people without physical challenges often take for granted. When an injury or illness robs a person of some mobility, it also strips them of some freedom. Asking others for rides or utilizing public transportation can be demoralizing or even depressing for someone used to doing things his or her own way. By offering a cash reimbursement, Chrysler is doing what it can to support people who have been robbed of their mobility through no fault of their own.

Chrysler Minivans Prime Candidate for Upfitting

The most popular choices for modification for disabled transportation are undoubtedly the Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Caravan minivans. With large dual sliding doors, stow and go rear seating and plenty of head room, it’s a relatively simple operation to install wheelchair lifts or ramps into a minivan. Stop by Chapman Dodge and get more information about the Chrysler Automobility Program. While you’re there, test drive a minivan or other Chrysler vehicle and start the road to restoring your loved one’s independence.
