For the sales team at Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, Buying is believing.A large majority of them have chosen to purchase their personal vehicles from Chapman to demonstrate their belief in the dealership’s values and the value in the dealership’s vehicles.
“Chapman is a very family oriented company, and our sales staff believes in our products we sell,” said Kevin Mackey, General Sales Manager at Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram. “This enables them to share first-hand knowledge with customers and provide the best service and experience possible.”Mackey has purchased seven vehicles during his eight-and-a-half years with the company. Gloria “Mama” Randolph, who recently purchased her third Dodge Charger, has been with Chapman for 23 years and serves as morning switchboard operator.
“The fact that so many of our employees at both Chapman locations choose to purchase their cars and trucks from right here where they work reinforces to me that our family-owned and family-operated philosophy is more than a catchy tagline,” said General Manager Don Hamrick. “Driving the products they represent and spend their own hard earned money on them is the single best endorsement they can make.”

The Chapman Automotive App (updated this past November) allows users to schedule service appointments, shop for cars and current deals, and access their service records. By choosing their closest dealership from the start, such as Chapman Dodge, customers will always have the correct contact information at their fingertips.

After downloading the app, users are asked to upload the make, model, and year of their vehicle. From that point on, every service appointment for that car will be saved in the service history tab with a description of what was done to the vehicle. The account also displays how many miles the car has at each service time for quick reference. The app also allows customers to quickly access auto repair and towing service numbers for their dealership through another button.
To schedule a new service, simply click on the service tab. There, the account information including name, car, dealership, and phone number will already be inputted based on the profile account. The option to add comments, choose a service adviser, and specify the type of service needed is available and will be communicated to the service adviser once the appointment is scheduled. Finish the setting the appointment by choosing a time and date and click the schedule service button to send the request on its way!

Simplify your auto maintenance schedule by downloading the app and using it every time you bring your car in for service.
If you are in the market for a truck, then you need look no further than the 2014 Ram 1500. When compared to the competition, the Silverado 1500 and F-150, the Ram offers luxury, performance, and capability in a way the other two cannot. For more information on 2014 Ram trucks, visit your Chapman Dodge dealership today.
Packing a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine in its most popular guise and producing the most power (395hp) under the hood, the Ram offers capable performance and towing capacity. The Silverado and F-150 both sport a 5.3-liter and 5.0-liter V-8 engine, respectively.
The Ram is a worker’s delight. It offers both 115V and 12V outlets for various uses, while providing comfort, like dual power front seats. A level of comfort also comes from the rear suspension setup. While the Silverado and F-150 use leaf springs in their suspension, the Ram has air springs, which provides a serene, car-like ride.
The Ram can tow 9650 pounds, which makes it very capable for hauling duties.
Another unique feature to the Ram is its Uconnect system. Unlike systems in the other two, which are slow to respond and finicky, Uconnect offers a slick and easy-to-use interface for telematics and voice-activated phone and radio commands.
The Ram’s level of luxury also makes it one of the quietest trucks on the road, adding to its car-like experience.
The standard 8-speed transmission also sets the Ram apart from the competition. This 8-speed, which will slowly proliferate across other models in the Chrysler family, allows for better fuel economy and road going mannerisms.
Safety is another realm the Ram truly excels. There are ten airbags packed into the Ram. The Silverado and F-150 only have six available. The Ram also has an engine immobilizer in case of an accident—a feature lacking in the other two.
When looking for a new truck, the 2014 Ram 1500 is truly a wonderful vehicle. It offers luxury, performance, and safety in an elegant package that its competitors cannot do.
