First unveiled at the recent Chicago Auto Show, the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT offers the most horsepower of any three-row SUV on the planet. With the time-tested 392 cubic inch HEMI engine pumping out 475 horsepower, the new Durango SRT will get you where you’re going quicker than any of its competitors. “The new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV,” according to Fiat Chrysler America passenger car executive Tim Kuniskis. “This is what you get when you take everything great about the Durango and combine it with the performance of the Charger SRT: a 12-second quarter mile, toy-hauling, three-row muscle car.” Keep in touch with Chapman Dodge for the official arrival date, which will be sometime this fall.

Wicked Fast Durango Loaded With Performance Features

Maybe it’s the 4.4 second run from 0 to 60 mph that will make you fall in love with the new Durango SRT, or maybe it will be when you beat your friends on the strip while registering a 12.9 second quarter mile. For many folks who don’t spend a lot of time on the track, performance out on the highway is the true measure of a muscle car and the new Dodge Durango SRT is built to handle the nation’s most challenging highways. An eight-speed automatic transmission is designed and calibrated to get the most performance out of every gear while delivering the maximum fuel efficiency. A seven-mode driving system allows you to pick the mode that best suits conditions and your mood (Hint: choose Sport Mode to reduce shift times and deliver the maximum power to the rear wheels). Stiffer suspension and adaptive dampers also reduce body roll and help you glide through corners as if you were in a two-seat sportster.

Uncompromised Luxury and Utility Combined

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT not only sits at the top of the mountain when it comes to performance, but it also delivers a sophisticated interior that’s full of creature comforts. A hand-wrapped dashboard with silver stitching, performance steering wheel with paddle shifters and vented and heated seats in the first two rows offer just a taste of the attention to detail that runs throughout the cabin. You can choose the standard Nappa leather seats with suede inserts, but if you really want to show off your wild side consider the Demonic Red Laguna leather that includes embossed SRT logos. All customers who buy a new SRT from Chapman Dodge will not only receive a beast on wheels, but get a free day of training at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Chandler.

Offers Two Leading 4×4 Systems

The all-new 2017 Jeep Compass offers drivers a choice of two industry-leading 4×4 systems. Jeep Active drive is a full-time 4×4 system that delivers 100 percent of the torque to any wheel that needs it the most. Jeep Active Drive Low does the same, but also offers an incredibly powerful 20:1 crawl ratio to help you through those tough crevices or over boulders. “Our all-new 2017 Jeep Compass enters an extremely important and growing segment worldwide, and does so with an unmatched list of attributes that includes benchmark 4×4 off-road capability, exceptional onroad driving dynamics, fuel-efficient powertrains, countless advanced technology and safety features, all wrapped in a premium, authentic Jeep design,” according to Jeep brand chief Mike Manley. Check in often to see when the new Jeep Compass will be available at Chapman Jeep.

Drive Modes Fine Tune Experience to Conditions

The need for four-wheel drive can be the result of a number of things, including snow, sand and mud. The Jeep Compass offers the ability to select a mode that is optimal for any of those conditions, as well as an “auto” mode for the best four-wheel drive performance. Choose the Trail-rated Jeep Compass Trailhawk and you also get a “Rock” mode for those particularly challenging trails. The Trailhawk also gives you an inch more of ground clearance and unique approach and departure angles to help protect your undercarriage.

Nine-speed Transmission Optimizes Engine Output

The North American version of the new Jeep Compass will be powered by the efficient 2.4L Tigershark engine. You can choose the six-speed manual transmission, or the class-exclusive nine-speed transmission that gets the optimal performance out of each power range. The new nine-speed transmission provides powerful launches while shifting smoothly through the gears at highway speeds. The 4×4 system disengages when it’s not needed, providing optimal fuel efficiency. Whenever a wheel starts to slip, the Jeep 4×4 ability kicks in to keep you in control and moving forward.

Off-roading Capability Doesn’t Sacrifice Comfort

Stop in at Chapman Jeep when the new Jeep Compass arrives and you’ll see that the newest member of the off-road lineup doesn’t skimp when it comes to comfort. The interior design utilizes an ergonomic layout and premium materials to keep driving simple. Steering wheel controls keep your eyes on the road, or trail as the case may be. There are also a number of storage solutions throughout the interior to stash electronics, maps, energy bars and anything else you might need for a day of off-roading.

Plenty of Models Offer Multiple Options

Starting at just $18,040, the Jeep Patriot continues to be the most inexpensive SUV in America, offering the iconic Jeep name and off-road features at a remarkable price. There are five different trim levels available for the Patriot, up to and including the High Altitude that offers features like leather trimmed seats, a power sunroof and powerful 2.0L double overhead cam engine that can tow up to 2,000 pounds. As with all Jeep Patriot models, safety is a prime concern, so the High Altitude model is equipped with Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation and Hill Start Assist, along with a plethora of advanced multi-stage and supplemental airbags.

Patriot Earns Best Economic Performance

Along with being one of the least expensive vehicles on the road to insure, the Jeep Patriot earned the distinction of having the best economic performance as designated by the Automotive Science Group. The Patriot had the lowest overall cost of ownership of 567 different SUVs evaluated by ASG. ASG also granted the Patriot the title of Best All-Around Performance after evaluating a field of 201 entrants. Now’s the best time to head to Chapman Jeep and buy a Patriot as the manufacturer is offering up to a $1,500 cash allowance on new models.

75th Anniversary Patriot Built to Stand Out

With a commemorative color offering, bronze accents and unique badging that will identify your Jeep as part of a special offering, the 75th Anniversary Patriot offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get your hands on a collector’s item. This special edition Patriot comes with 17-inch off-road tires on bronze wheels and bronze tow hooks if you opt for the 4×4 model. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and sophisticated interior in either slate gray or frost beige comes with the 75th Anniversary package. You’ll also enjoy seats trimmed in McKinley leather with ombre cloth mesh inserts.

Freedom Package Boosts Off-Road Capability

The Freedom-Drive II special equipment package boosts your new Patriot’s off-road capability by offering a more powerful alternator, bigger wheels, an off-road mode for the 4×4 system and technology to help you maintain control while going up or down steep inclines. You’ll also get an oil cooler, tow hooks, ski plate to protect your fuel tank and a “Trail Rated” badge that is Jeep’s stamp of approval to take your vehicle off-road.
