Now’s The Time to Fill that Muscle Car Void

Act before the end of February for great deals on both the Challenger and Charger in the Dodge President’s Day Event. You can get a total allowance of up to $2,000 on a 2016 Challenger SXT and up to $1,000 on a Charger SXT. If you need something sporty but a little smaller and a tad more affordable, the remaining inventory of 2015 Dart GTs has up to $4,500 off, an incredible deal for this nimble little vehicle. The best place to buy a Dodge in Scottsdale is Chapman Dodge, with a large inventory and helpful sales staff.

Challenger SXT Puts You in Pony Car Class

For the last 50 years, the Dodge Challenger, Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang have been battling for supremacy in the vaunted Pony Car wars. The Challenger SXT is one of the least expensive ways to throw your hat in the ring while providing a jaw-dropping presence on the streets. The Challenger SXT starts at just $26,995 before incentives and features a 305-horsepower Pentastar V6. Along with its beautiful design, it comes with Dodge’s UConnect hands free infotainment system, allowing you to make calls and control your music without taking your eyes off the road. Dual zone air conditioning is also standard, as is a dual exhaust that culminates in chrome tips.

Classic Charger Hearkens Back to Muscle Car Days

The entry-level Charger SXT still has plenty of power and features to strike a little awe into the hearts of others out on the road. As the four-door bigger brother of the Challenger, it comes with a 292-horsepower V6, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, LED running lights and racetrack tail lamps and a 12-way power driver seat. This popular sports sedan also delivers 31 miles per gallon on the highway, an efficiency to which few muscle cars could aspire. The digital cluster display provides high-resolution graphics to show vehicle information, such as speed, RPMs and current fuel efficiency.

Dart GT Loaded With Features

Check in with the pros at Chapman Dodge to see if they have any 2015 Dart GTs in stock. This decked out version of the Dart features remote start, push button start, a digital cluster display, rear view camera and 18-inch aluminum wheels. With an 8.4-inch touchscreen, peppy 184 horsepower Tigershark Engine and up to 33 miles per gallon, the Dart GT is one choice you shouldn’t ignore when looking for a Dodge in Scottsdale.

Luxury SUV Has Range of 730 Miles

Consider the possibility of driving from San Francisco to Phoenix without stopping to catch a Giants spring training game. With a range of 730 miles, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel has the ability to make that trip while keeping you in the lap of luxury with refined interior materials and a smooth, quiet ride. Remember when SUVs had large engines that seemed to barely make it from gas station to gas station? The engineering of the EcoDiesel is a modern marvel, delivering 30 mpg on the highway with low emissions and plenty of power. Swing by Chapman Jeep Scottsdale to see why this quiet diesel technology is a smart option for alternative power now and in the future.

Diesel Saves Both Fuel and Time

Consider your daily commute. If you drove an average of 50 miles per day, that would equate to about 18,000 miles per year. With the EcoDiesel, you would only hit the gas station about 31 times, compared to 46 fill-ups with a gas engine. That means you’d save 151 minutes a year just by not going to the gas station as often. Along with time, you also save money at the pumps and at the service station. The EcoDiesel can go much longer between maintenance visits, saving you even more time.

Need to Tow? The EcoDiesel is Ready

All those big trucks going down the highway aren’t burning gasoline; they’re burning diesel fuel. If they have enough power to pull a huge trailer, it stands to reason that an SUV under diesel power can pull your boat. In fact, the Jeep Grand Cherokee outfitted with the EcoDiesel is rated to pull up to 7,400 pounds, more than enough for most boats and other recreational equipment. The diesel-powered Grand Cherokee has the highest towing rating in its class, easily defeating Ford, Toyota, Honda and Nissan. The engine also provides 420 foot pounds of torque, which makes getting underway a breeze, no matter what you have on your trailer.

Grand Cherokee Makes Driving a Dream

The EcoDiesel engine is available on Limited trim levels and above. These models include leather-trimmed seats, keyless entry, dual zone temperature control rear park assist and a standard 5-inch touchscreen for your infotainment system. Heated front and second row seats, an 8-way power driver and passenger seat and 18-inch wheels all add to the amenities. For the ultimate in comfort and driving efficiency, check out the Jeep Grand Cherokee at Chapman Jeep Scottsdale.

Roots Trace Back to Willys-Overland Car Company

As the namesake of the new 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland, the Willys-Overland Motor Company was founded in 1908 and produced a series of cars before being selected by the U.S. Military as one of the manufacturers of the Jeep Wrangler predecessor during World War II. Willys-Overland produced more than 300,000 Jeeps from 1941-1945, and then diversified its lineup to more civilian-friendly vehicles in the years after the war. The name Overland was originally given to a four-door sedan in 1926 and eventually evolved into a trim package on the Jeep Grand Cherokee in 2003 with badging reminiscent of an earlier time. Stop by Chapman Jeep Scottsdale later this spring to check out the latest version with this iconic name.

New Overland Combines Sophistication With Trail Ability

By combining Jeep’s industry-leading four wheel drive system with creature comforts like Alpine audio, parking assist, navigation and safety sensors, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland is the perfect vehicle for a night on the town or comfortably attacking a tough off-road trail. The design of the new Overland features a bright front extension to supply some attitude while body color fender flares deliver an aggressive stance. HID bi-xenon headlights not only illuminate your way, but look cool as heck coming down the road. Eighteen-inch wheels and a bold Overland nameplate on the tailgate complete the exterior look.

Leather and Wood Complement the Interior

With available leather wrapping on the steering wheel, a leather padded dash and rich leather trimmed heated and ventilated seats, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Overland provides a sophisticated feel. High-gloss wood trimmings, Berber floor mats and an available dual pane sunroof add to the luxury of this mid-size SUV. This is the top-of-the-line for Cherokee trim packages before you move up to the Grand Cherokee model.

Two Engine Choices Let You Pick Power or Efficiency

The new Jeep Cherokee Overland comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces an amazing 184 horsepower when paired with a 9-speed automatic tranny. If towing is a big part of your life, you may want to select the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 that delivers 271 horses. It’s all part of the Heavy Duty Protection Package that also includes a full size spare and skid plates. Add the Technology Group and you receive driver assist features like brake assist, lane departure warning and forward collision warning. See all the features the new Jeep Cherokee Overland offers by taking a trip to Chapman Jeep Scottsdale later this spring.


Sacrifice a Little Efficiency for More Performance

The 2016 Dodge Dart comes with a choice of three different engines. Depending on whether you want a little more efficiency or a shade higher performance, you can choose from the 2.0-liter Tigershark, the 1.4-liter Multiair Turbo or the 2.4-liter Tigershark Multiair 2 engines. The 2.0L Tigershark has 16 valves with Variable Valve Timing. It is standard on the Dart SE and provides 160 horses with either the six-speed manual or automatic while getting 36 mpg on the highway. The Dart Aero comes with the 1.4L engine, which also provides 160 horses but gets 41 mpg on the highway. Step up to the Dart SXT, Limited or GT and you get the most powerful Tigershark engine. It provides 184 horses and up to 35 mpg on the highway. Test drive all with a visit to Chapman Dodge Scottsdale to pick the car that’s best for you.

Five Trim Packages Provide Plenty of Options

Whether you pick the base SE or top-of-the-line Limited, there are plenty of standard features in the 2016 Dodge Dart to go around. Starting at less than $17,000, the SE comes with standard traction control and electronic roll mitigation. Move up to the SXT and you get the UConnect infotainment system with Bluetooth technology, an electronic vehicle information center and LED taillamps. The Aero model provides an instrument cluster that includes a tachometer, leather wrapped steering wheel and a year subscription to Sirius XM radio. The GT has all that plus heated front seats, while the Limited provides just about every option you could ever imagine.

Compact Car Has Midsize Interior

Careful planning and design provides much more room in the Dodge Dart cabin than is available in other compact cars. A 60/40 folding rear seat provides plenty of options for awkward cargo, while both the cloth and Nappa leather seats are soft to the touch. An available heated steering wheel along with heated front seats helps take the chill off those cold winter mornings. Dual zone temperature control makes sure both the driver and passengers are as comfortable as can be no matter what Mother Nature is doing outside.
