What The Experts Say:

2016 Dodge Challenger: “Ready to leave most other cars in a thick cloud of white smoke? We love the 2016 Dodge Challenger’s authentic muscle car persona and how Dodge backs it up with real performance and surprising practicality. Strong engine choices, topped by the insane 707-hp Hellcat V8; actual room for four adults; an enormous trunk, especially compared to rivals; highly customizable thanks to a huge number of options; relatively supple ride, especially on the highway; touchscreen interface is packed with features and easy to use.” –Edmunds.com

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee: “If you want a midsize SUV that does a little of everything, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a prime candidate. Its well-trimmed cabin provides comfy seating, and it easily masters both off-road trails and daily commutes alike. Diverse engine lineup, including thrifty diesel V6; upscale interior; plenty of luxury and technology-oriented features; irrefutable off-road ability; outlandish SRT model.” –Edmunds.com

FCA Considering Selling Subsidiary to Samsung

FCA Considering Selling Subsidiary to Samsung

By | Chrysler Car News, FCA News | No Comments

According to USA Today and reporter Nathan Bomey, FCA is considering potentially selling one of its suppliers, Magneti Marelli to Samsung. Samsung is looking for an entry into the world of vehicle electronics and infotainment, while FCA is looking to pay down debt. In April, CEO Sergio Marchionne, shared with investors that there “will be at a point where it no longer needs to rely on … an internal supplier” and “we’ll be in a position to take a hard look at this to find out whether it makes sense to continue Marelli in the portfolio.” For now, FCA continues “to rely on Marelli now to provide a lot of technical support in terms of the development of our portfolio.”

Walter P. Chrysler

In Memoriam:

Tomorrow marks the 76th anniversary of the death of Walter Chrysler. In 1875, Chrysler was born the son of locomotive engineer in Kansas. At the age of 17, he began working as an apprentice in a railroad machine shop quickly working his way up to plant manager for the American Locomotive Company. Chrysler first became interested in automobiles at the 1905 auto show in Chicago where he borrowed $5,000 to buy his own car, which he completely dissembled and reassembled before ever driving it. In 1911, Chrysler became a manager at Buick Motor Company. Within five years, he had become the company’s president, making Buick the strongest unit of General Motors. In 1925, Chrysler became president of Chrysler Corporation, a marriage between the former Maxwell and Chalmers car companies. In 1928, Chrysler took over Dodge and introduced the Plymouth, becoming one of the Big Three American automakers. Many recognize Chrysler for the Chrysler building in Manhattan which was completed in 1930. Interestingly, architects used elements from Chrysler automobiles including radiator caps, hubcaps, and stainless steel meant to evoke the shine of a car. Walter Chrysler died in 1940 after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage at 65 years old.

The 2016 Jeep Renegade Shines in KBB 10 Best Lists

The 2016 Jeep Renegade Shines in KBB 10 Best Lists

By | Jeep Car News | No Comments

KBB routinely releases 10 Best Lists to better help consumers determine their best car. Recently, Jeep has been highlighted by a variety of KBB 10 Best Lists. See how Jeep impressed the KBB editors below:

In the “10 Most Affordable SUVs of 2016“, Jeep was highlighted three different times. The 2016 Jeep Patriot placed third, while the 2016 Jeep Compass finished in eighth due to “lower transaction prices”.  The 2016 Jeep Wrangler came in sixth because “the world-famous Wrangler is also one of the most affordable SUVs on the road, as resilient in resale value as it is on the trail”. This affordability also landed the 2016 Wrangler in the “10 best SUVs under $25,000” alongside the 2016 Jeep Renegade which “mixes the off-road spirit of a Jeep Wrangler with the added efficiency, refinement and affordability of a smaller crossover SUV.” 

The 2016 Jeep Renegade was also highlighted in the “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000” where it placed third and in the “10 Best All-Wheel Drive Vehicles Under $25,000” where it placed fifth. The 2016 Jeep Wrangler placed eighth on “10 Coolest Cars Under $25,000” and second in the “10 Most Fun SUVs“. Also named in the “10 Most Fun SUVs” is the 2016 Jeep Renegade (placed 9th) and the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT (placed 7) with the experts explaining, “The muscle car of SUVs is packed with a big, 475-horsepower V8 engine capable of propelling the track-tuned version of Jeep’s luxurious off-roader to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds.”

Watch: Dodge's New Warning Ad

Watch: Dodge’s New Warning Ad

By | Dodge Car News | No Comments

We discussed in a recent article that Dodge is using its muscle car heritage to help strengthen the brand’s image during a time when Dodge sales have been decreasing. One way Dodge planned to do this was with their RoadKill nights, but it seems that the brand is going all in with their latest commercial, which is simply titled “WARNING!!”. It features blinking Dodge headlights as a disclaimer floats barely readable across the screen. In a statement Olivier Francois, global chief marketing officer for FCA, “Every brand has its own DNA and Dodge’s bloodline is built on performance, passion and attitude. ‘Domestic. Not Domesticated.’ embodies what Dodge stands for as a proud American performance brand. Our cars show off some very American traits — big, fast, powerful, fun to drive – all while being a completely valid choice as a safe and reliable family vehicle. Simply put, when you drive a Dodge, you don’t have to compromise. You can grow up without giving up.”‎
