With the forward collision warning system, a chime will sound and the brakes will activate to provide you with a warning whenever the system detects that a collision may be imminent. If you fail to respond to the warning provided by braking, the collision warning system will then apply the brakes automatically to either mitigate or avoid a collision.

All trims on the 2015 Dodge Durango, including the Citadel, offer a rear-seat Blu-ray/DVD entertainment system featuring dual video screens. Whether you’re making a trip across town or you have a longer road trip in mind, this built-in entertainment system makes it easy to keep the younger crowd entertained.

All Durango models, including the 2015 Citadel can also be outfitted with a complete towing package that features load-leveling rear shocks, a heavy-duty alternator and oil cooler, and a full-size spare tire.

Dodge Caravan


Consumers looking for the safest minivan need look no further than the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan, which was recently awarded a four-star safety rating from the federal government. The highest rating given by the federal government is five stars.

Background Behind the 5-Star Safety Ratings Program

The 5-Star Safety Ratings Program was created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program in an effort to offer consumers important information regarding the rollover safety and crash protection of new vehicles. Initiated in 1978, the 5-Star Safety Ratings Program was designed to provide a measure of the level of safety specifically for occupants in a vehicle in the case of a frontal crash. In 1997, side crash rating results were added, while rollover assessments were added beginning with 2001 models. With the information available via the 5-Star Safety Ratings Program, consumers are able to more accurately compare cars when shopping for a new vehicle. If you are ever in the area, you can see how much comfort and safety the Dodge offers by going to Chapman Dodge.

Dodge Challenger and Charger

All-too-often, a lot of car manufacturers will disappoint people by changing up a car or truck too much.

Finally, there is going to be a set of 3.07 gears, along with a shortcut button for the dedicated Dodge Performance Pages app, which will have a g-force monitor and acceleration timers.

Dodge Lease

If you are leasing a Dodge car, truck or SUV, you have a decision to make at the end of the lease. Think about it, you can either turn in the vehicle, or you can buy your Dodge. With this in mind, here is a short guide on how to determine if you should buy out your lease or if you should get a new vehicle.

First and foremost, if you want to buy out your lease, you should think about your long-term wants and needs. Do you want to get a brand new vehicle, or are you happy with your current model? If you like your current Dodge model, you should consider buying out your lease. While true, you will want to think of more things than your wants and needs. Yes, you will want to think about the finances and if it’s truly a good deal. If you decide that you want to get a new Dodge, you have plenty of options at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.

Another thing to consider is the shape of your current vehicle. If it’s in bad shape, you may want to keep it as you will have to fix it. On the other hand, if you have a Dodge that is in excellent shape,  you can probably have no issues in returning it. Remember, when you lease a car, the company will look for major issues, but you can probably turn it in with minor issues.

Without a doubt, if you are looking at a new Dodge, you can find one with more features and latest infotainment options. On the other hand, you will spend more money if you get a new Dodge with a lease or buy option. But, if you want to keep your old Dodge, you can save some serious cash, and you can enjoy your Dodge for a long time. Either way, think about what you want out of a vehicle, and if you want new features, you should consider turning in your Dodge and getting a new one. When doing so, you need to check out Dodge lease specials to see what you can get for your money.

Now, when you want to turn in a Dodge, or any other vehicle for that matter, you will have to think about mileage. While not fun to think about, you must remember that excess mileage will cost you serious money, and you should keep that in mind when turning in a vehicle. If you are over your mileage, you can either pay the company off, or you can simply buy the vehicle and avoid the fee. Luckily, if you plan ahead, you can ensure that you don’t go over the mileage. But, if you do go over or are close to going over, you should consider buying out your lease.
