2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible
by admin on Mar 11th, 2013
There should be more convertibles in the world. Practical, four-door cars with decent trunk space and a roof that disappears bringing us much closer to nature. That top-down, wind in the hair enjoyment that can take a boring commute and turn it into a great way to arrive anywhere. Fortunately, Chrysler appreciates that we still want a bit of fun in our lives and have maintained the inimitable Chrysler 200 convertible for our driving ...

SRT Core Models Seen at Chicago
by admin on Feb 11th, 2013
The term â€śback to basicsâ€ť is a popular term in Europe right now. It reflects culture, the economic climate and that rose-tinted time when money wasnâ€™t a problem. When we bought groceries from the corner store instead of supermarkets and when we took our shoes to be repaired instead of throwing them away. Dodge sees back to basics slightly differently. Their version of it means back to the heyday of muscle cars. When a car was j...

Which Chrysler Model is Getting the Mopar Treatment?
by admin on Jan 28th, 2013
Chrysler released a teaser image last week for a new 2013 Mopar model, but left us guessing as to what model would be getting the makeover. As you can see, the image, while nice, tells us absolutely nothing, as does the press release. The real thing will be unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show in February. Previous Mopar cars have been the 2010 Mopar Challenger, 2011 Mopar Charger and the 2012 Mopar 300. The latter just one of many spec...

Chrysler Planning to Overhaul Vehicle Servicing
by admin on Jan 9th, 2013
The ownership experience is about more than how the car drives, how much gas mileage it achieves and how it makes you feel. The true measure of any product and any manufacturer is how they both treat you once you have paid up and left the building. Traditionally, you were all but forgotten. Once the sale had gone through, you ceased to exist. When something went wrong, you had to visit the dealership and pay through the nose to have ...

Jeep Grand Cherokee Making Diesel Debut
by admin on Dec 6th, 2012
Chrysler recently accidentally released the news that the new Jeep Grand Cherokee will come in diesel flavor. Due to be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in 2013, the oil-burning motor will hit the market in the first quarter of next year. North Americans have never really embraced diesel power like the Europeans or those in Africa or the Middle East. There is something about those clouds of black smoke and clattery engines that put ...

New RAM Commercial Lineup Launches
by admin on Nov 29th, 2012
Considering Chrysler have made some of the best trucks around for many years under the Ram brand, itâ€™s surprising that it has taken so long to bring a distinct commercial division to market. Formally, Ram launched their Ram Commercial arm to take on Ford and General Motors who have traditionally dominated the light commercial truck market for a number of years. Despite the announcement, thereÂ isn'tÂ going to be a clear commerci...

2013 Chrysler Town & Country S
by admin on Nov 28th, 2012
We donâ€™t usually cover much of the auto shows, especially those not held in Canada. They are covered exhaustively everywhere else and often bear little relevance to the everyday buyer. This bit of news we had to share though, for two reasons. One, there is so little news about Chrysler that we have to latch on to whatever comes around and two, the Town & Country is their best-selling people carrier. So the news that the 2013 Ch...

Chrysler Posts Good Profits and Sees Sale Growth
by admin on Oct 31st, 2012
Chrysler are probably the quietest automaker in the world. Itâ€™s rare indeed that they fanfare new models or make a lot of fuss about concepts or appearing at auto shows. Thatâ€™d why when they do post news, we have to latch onto it before it goes away. We donâ€™t usually talk about earnings, as it doesn'tÂ concern the average motorist, of which I consider myself. However, all the news right now is about SEMA and Chrysler have poste...
