  3. […] Love the Chrysler brand but feel that the 300 is a little too much car for you? The 2017 Chrysler 200 is the perfect alternative. With a base price of $22,610 it’s also decidedly budget-friendly out of all the Chrysler models. The 200 has two trim levels: Touring and Limited Platinum. It also has a 2.4L I4 MultiAir Engine and a 9-speed transmission, as well as front wheel drive. The basics are still available: traction control, ABS, power steering, cruise control, and power windows. As always, if you’d like additional information on the following features, please check out our features glossary. […]

  4. […] In case you missed it, the previous couple posts discussed the 2017 Chrysler lineup including the Pacifica, the 300, and the 200. Starting off the Dodge family is the classic American powerhouse – the 2017 Dodge Charger. Originally released for the 1966 model year, the Charger has been the pinnacle of American muscle for the Chrysler family and has worked its way to our hearts, including pop culture (who hasn’t seen The Dukes of Hazzard or The Fast & The Furious?). Today’s Charger has come a long way, and is on a whole other level. With a base price of $27,995 and soaring all the way to well over $67,000, the possibilities are endless. There are eight trim levels on the 2017 Charger: SE, SXT, R/T, Daytona, R/T Scatpack, Daytona 392, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat. The Charger is now a four-door sedan, and has a sleek profile with some vivacious color options. For the sake of this post, these trim levels do not build on each other because there is such variety with this model. If you’d like to read more on some of the features offered, be sure to check out our feature glossary. […]

  5. […] The last blog post was about the 2017 Dodge Charger; this week, we’re discussing it’s equally popular brother, the Dodge Challenger. Just as classic, the Challenger has evolved over the years, but don’t let that fool you – its history is just as rich. If you look closely, you can spot the Challenger in pop culture – the racing scene in The Bucket List, Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and the Green Lantern to name a few. This two part series will go over the fourteen (yes, fourteen) different trim levels that are offered for this year’s Challenger. We’ll start with the seven lower trim levels: SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, GT AWD, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker, and T/A. As with the Charger posts, these will not build upon the previous package because they are all so different; however, we’re going to disregard the same features as always (ABS, cruise, etc.). If you’d like to see an in-depth description of the features, head on over to the features glossary. […]

  11. […] Transitioning from the Dodge family, where we finished with the Viper, and heading to the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the perfect segue into this spring. Going into its fourteenth year of production and fourth generation of body-style changes, this is one sleek SUV that will have you wanting to hop into one and never get out. Starting production in the early ’90s, it was immediately popular, and that reputation has only grown since.

[…] Although the Jeep Renegade hasn’t been around long, the first model year was 2015, it has quickly become a popular favorite. Laying opposite on the SUV scale where the Grand Cherokee reigns supreme, the Renegade is its more compact cousin; don’t let that fool you though, the Renegade’s surprisingly roomy interior and sharp exterior design certainly holds its own.

  13. […] If you want to talk about iconic, look no further. The Jeep Wrangler doesn’t just have it’s own history, it has its own entourage. People who wave to perfect strangers, will go out of their way to park next to one of their comrades, and who love to freak out their unsuspecting friends with the death wobble. With a history as rich as the Wrangler though, how can you not love it? With a production year that started in 1987 for the Wrangler and the Unlimited in 2007, as well as having a predecessor like the Jeep CJ, this is just as classic as some of its Dodge counterparts. Here is a breakdown of the 2017 model year Wrangler as well as the Wrangler Unlimited; if you’d like an in-depth description of any features, check out our feature glossary. […]
