The sophisticated and luxurious 2015 Chrysler 200 has made its debut with a slew of upgrades and is pioneering a new lineup and look for the Chrysler brand.
The new model has slimmed down significantly compared to its predecessors and is made with lighter and stronger materials while maintaining far better fuel economy. Ride quality and performance levels have increased thanks to a stronger and lighter frame and chassis comprised of 60 percent high strength steel; interior noise quality has been minimized for a quieter cabin space. A sloping grill effortlessly complements the smooth lines making up the front end of the vehicle, which may become the look inspiration for future models. The standard 4-cylinder engine roars louder than its rivals while a V6 engine is also available.
The interior of the 2015 Chrysler 200 is stylish and top quality with plenty of storage and passenger space. You will not see tacky fake wood paneling on the interior of the car, as Chrysler decided the use genuine wood to flank their dash on every trim level including standard. The middle console houses most of the vehicle controls for easy use, as well as a sliding compartment under the cup holders, which reveals even more space to store personal belongings. Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system has been hailed as “best-in-class” by some for its ease of use and large, 8.4” high-resolution touchscreen, while crisp, Bluetooth quality- hands free calling and audio capabilities are available at every trim level.
“Best-in-class” safety and security features further set the all-new Chrysler 200 apart from competing sedans. Each vehicle is equipped with eight airbags to protect passengers from every side, electronic stability control, and traction control for skid-free rides. No need to fish for your keys in your purse or pocket, the 200s keyless “Entry-N-Go” capability allows door handles to open first pull as long as the key fob is in range. Additional safety features are available on select trims including rearview camera, remote start systems, and blind spot detection.
Top-of-the-line amenities and driving capability of the 2015 Chrysler 200 catapult it to the level of a high-end sedan at an affordable price point. Multiple trims and added options result in endless customization possibilities. The 2015 Chrysler 200 sets the bar high for future Chrysler vehicles and is ready to compete against all other sedans on the market.

At the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, SRT debuted Satin Vapor editions of the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger. While the package doesn’t add anything to the performance of the vehicles, it does give them some sick new looks that customers to Chapman Las Vegas Dodge can check out right now.
All three of the cars receive 20×9-inch, split-spoke forged aluminum wheels with black chrome finish, Brembo brakes with red calipers, matte side mirrors, special badging and rear spoilers. The fuel door and Super Bee graphic also receive the matte finish as well.
The colors the cars are available in are limited: the Challenger is available in white, TorRed, Header Orange, and graphite; the 300 in white, silver, and granite; and the Charger in silver, graphite, TorRed, and white.
Once you slip inside one of the Satin Vapor editions of the 300, Charger or Challenger, you’ll notice the dark upholstery. The 300 and Charger receive black upholstery while the Challenger receives charcoal.
Interior upholstery mixes Nappa leather and suede with trim pieces in carbon-look or piano black.
Power comes from a 64-liter Hemi V-8 engine. It produces 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Chrysler says that engine should propel any of the three Satin Vapor vehicles to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. Power is put to the ground through a five-speed automatic transmission, which doesn’t translate into fuel economy, but all three vehicles have cylinder deactivation. In addition to the burly engines, all three have standard active exhaust to give it a truly beefy sound.
While the name doesn’t seem to fit, it does add a level of aesthetic pleasure that looks great in person. The package costs an additional $1700 for the Challenger, $2300 for the 300, and just $30 for the Charger—which is kind of a steal for that price. These three editions are now available.
To check out a new SRT Satin Vapor edition Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger, stop by Chapman Las Vegas to test drive one today.
Ram has one of the largest and best selections of vehicles for local businesses. Each Ram vehicle at Chapman Dodge has the power and durability to get the job done. The Ram 1500 is the only truck to ever win Motor Trend’s truck of the year twice in a row. These dependable, workhorse vehicles are built with the same quality that won the Ram 1500 that coveted prize for the past two years. The Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 are the premium commercial towing and hauling vehicles while the Promaster Cargo 1500, 2500 and 3500 are the premier Ram shipping vehicles.
The 2014 Ram 1500 can be configured many ways. It comes in a standard cab, a crew cab, and a quad cab. The Express model has a 120.5-inch cab, 2WD, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 395 horsepower and a 6-speed automatic transmission. It also comes in a Tradesman model with a 140.5-inch cab, 2WD, an 8-speed automatic transmission with manual shift and a 3.6-liter Fuel Flex V6 with 305 horsepower. The Ram 2500 has similar options with a standard and mega cab. The 2500 is larger and has more power and larger cabs. The Ram 3500 ups the size and power a bit more and offers all of its models with 4WD. The 3500 also comes with a mega cab option.
Another option for businesses is the 2014 Promaster cargo. It comes in 1500, 2500 and 3500 models. The 3500 has an extended, open flat bed, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 280 Horsepower, a 159-inch cab and a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 2500 has an enclosed, large trunk and the same 3.6-liter engine that powers the 3500. It has a 136-inch cab and a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1500 has the same large enclosed trunk that the 2500 does and has the same engine and transmission as the Promaster cargo 3500 and 2500. For more information visit Chapman Las Vegas Dodge.
The 2014 Ram 1500 took the top prize for Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year Award for the second time in a row. This is the first time any make or model has taken the prize two years running. The only trucks considered for this award are ones that have dramatically improved their model over the previous model year. This Ram 1500 is the first diesel powered 1,000-pound truck in 15 years. The recent advances in diesel technology allow this truck to be a game-changer. This diesel truck is not the heavy, slow, pollution-spewing diesel of old. This truck comes with one of the most advanced 8-speed automatic transmissions ever put in a diesel truck. The new Eco Diesel engine actually has been proven more efficient than its regular gas powered counterparts. For every 500 miles a gas-powered counterpart can run, the new Ram EcoDiesel will run about 575.
The engine is a 3-liter turbo diesel V6 with 240 hp held together by graphite instead of aluminum. The graphite parts in this truck provide a better strength-to-weight ration than aluminum, which decreases weight and increases acceleration and cornering. The EcoDiesel engine puts out an impressive 26-mpg highway, which is about 4-5 mpg better than the average of a comparable truck. Another impressive stat is that Motor Trend ranked the 2014 Ram 1500 the best in class in “ease of towing.” The Ram 1500 has the smoothest ride when towing and experiences the least amount of loss in power when doing so. Its ability to chug at low rpm’s and the industry leading 8-speed automatic transmission allow the Ram to tow its payload in the most efficient way.
The Ram also received some of the highest grades in the world as far as interior space, comfort and design. The controls are user-friendly and designed to be easy to operate even in heavy-duty work gloves. This award has been given out since 1979 and never, until now, has it been given to the same truck twice in a row. That says it all right there.

Fuel economy is one of the top considerations for pick-up truck drivers, and Ram is addressing that concern by becoming the first manufacturer to offer a diesel engine in a half-ton pickup. Labeled EcoDiesel and offered on the 2014 Ram 1500, the 3.0-liter, turbocharged V-6 common-rail diesel will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
According to Edmunds, the powerplant, which boasts 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm, will achieve more than 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The EcoDiesel engine meets all state emissions requirements with assistance from a diesel-exhaust-fluid (DEF) system that should call for a refill around every 10,000 miles. Ram points out that the DEF system, unlike others on the market, allows the engine to run at full power even when the fluid level is low.
Ram also finalized towing numbers for the exclusive EcoDiesel. The two-wheel-drive, two-door, long bed with the new EcoDiesel will tow up to 9,200 lb. The new diesel engine approaches larger-displacement V8s’ towing capability with a 3.0-liter V6.
Ram’s 4.7-liter V-8 is now discontinued, leaving buyers to choose between the new 3.0-liter diesel, a 25-mpg, 3.6-liter flex-fuel V-6 gasoline engine, and a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, which comes back as the standard engine for the Ram 1500 Tradesman. EcoDiesel buyers can expect to pay a little more than a comparable Hemi-equipped 1500 and a Ram fitted with the base V-6, but will be worth it in the long run.
The interior of the Ram 1500 will be all new in 2014, with upgraded materials; a vast array of choices ranging up to the fancy embossed leather of the Laramie Longhorn trim level; expanded telematics and connectivity including hotspot Wi-Fi, a work-site boon; a new power-locking system that secures the tailgate and side-mounted RamBoxes with one key-fob click.
