2016 Dodge Grand Caravan

 

Chrysler practically invented the family oriented minivan with the release of the roomy, reliable, practical, Dodge Caravan in 1984. Now they have perfected it with the release of the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan. This latest version of the Grand Caravan is the best yet. It’s a terrific family vehicle. It’s comfortable, durable, versatile, and stylish. It can seat up to 7 people comfortably with room for their pets, and all their stuff. Plus it is rugged enough to take the family across all types of terrain, yet it has the great handling you need for navigating in-town traffic.

The versatility of the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is one of the things that makes it the ideal family vehicle. It can be transformed into whatever you need. With all the seats upright and in place, there’s enough room for your entire tribe. However, its innovative Super Stow ‘n Go Seating and Storage system, exclusive to its class, lets you fold the second and third-row seats flat to quickly create over 143 cubic feet of cargo room. That’s large enough to fit all the gear and groceries even the largest family has to haul around. Yet once you close the doors it still looks great. To see how great it looks, you can check one out, in-person, at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.

If you and your crew love to go tailgating, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is the perfect vehicle for it. Just flip the 60/40 split seats in the third row backwards, recline them, and you can tailgate to your heart’s content. The lift-gate even provides added protecting from the blazing sun, rain showers, or anything else Mother Nature throws at you. It’s the ideal spot from which to watch the kids play or take in a drive-in movie. At the end of the day everything flips back in place in a flash and you’re on to your next adventure.

The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan also has all the conveniences you need no matter where your travels take you. You can get adjustable LED reading lamps which provide pinpoint illumination for each rows. The 3-zone automatic temperature control let’s people sitting anywhere in the vehicle select the how cool or warm they want to be. Push a button and the windows open. You can also get power sliding doors and lift-gate as well. Plus there’s a DVD and Blu-Ray dual-screen entertainment system complete with HDMI connections, two rear USB ports, remote control, and wireless headphones.

Challenger

 

Sales of the Dodge Challenger are trending upward. The management of the Chrysler Group has announced that in 2015 Dodge Challenger sales were the second highest in the automobile’s history. The Dodge Challenger was first produced in 1970. That year 83,032 Challengers were sold. In 2015, the company sold 66,365. That is the second highest total number of Challengers ever sold in a single year. And this significant increase in sales is not a one-off event. Dodge Challenger sales have risen steadily since 2009. Apparently each year more and more Americans are falling in love with the Challenger.

Sales of the muscular Challenger is building momentum too. While sales had been growing steadily each year, 2015 saw sales rocket upwards by almost 15,000. That’s not just a sales increase, that’s a seismic shift. It’s a referendum on the quality of this car. The Dodge Challenger is excitement on four wheels. In an economic and social atmosphere where stress is pervasive, the Dodge Challenger is a stress release valve that can relieve tension and put a smile on people’s faces. And it seems like a growing number of people have come to recognize it. And, if you want to see why the Dodge Challenger had its 2nd best sales year ever, come to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas and feel the power – you won’t regret it.

There are cars that sell more units than the Dodge Challenger, but that doesn’t bother the management team of the Chrysler Group. Automobile sales is a bottom-line business, and the bottom line is the Challenger is making a statement buyers like. When the company debuted the 2015 Dodge Challenger at the New York International Auto Show in 2014, people questioned whether the redesigned classic could improve on the 51,611 Challengers they had sold. They questioned whether the upgrades were enough to generate interest from new buyers. But the Chrysler Group didn’t question, or waver. They simply delivered.

The Dodge Challenger had a banner year in 2015. The 2014 edition was the 7th iteration of the Challenger badge. Although sales had continued to rise since 2008, some were suggesting the Chrysler Group should make the Challenger more like a Camaro or Mustang. Make it smaller and lighter many suggested. Instead Chrysler doubled down. They added the SRT Hellcat package with its 707 horsepower engine, introduced some new trimlines, and did a light refresh. While the critics said the changes to the 2015 Dodge Challenger were not enough to improve sales, the vehicle went on to have the second best sales year in its history.

In May 2015, 7,438 Dodge Challengers were sold. A record for sales. More than 4,260 Challengers were sold in the November 2015. That was the fewest sales of any month in 2015. In the past, 4,263 sales would have been considered a great month. But things have changed for the Dodge Challenger. The Chrysler Group is in the midst of a 69 month stretch in which sales have improved year over year. They’re the first automaker in the American market to do that. And things look even brighter for the Chrysler Group and the Dodge Challenger in 2016.

 

 

CarPlay

 

The recently created Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is updating the technology on its Chrysler and Dodge cars, trucks, and SUVs. This long loved line of innovative automobiles will now be outfitted with a brand new version of the Uconnect technology that’s been available in the Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep automobiles for the past few years now. While the current Uconnect system works well, the updated version will allow the owners of the new Chrysler and Dodge vehicles to use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new Uconnect will be available beginning with the 2016 model year Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep automobiles.  To see any Chrysler or Dodge vehicles, check them out at Chapman Dodge.

The old Uconnect 8.4 navigational system is currently found in vehicles like the Dodge Charger and comes with an Yelp app integrated into it. But according to the announcement made by FCA, the parent company of the Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep brands, the updated Uconnect infotainment system will enable drivers and passengers to do much more. During the announcement at CES, the company explained that the new Uconnect not only will start up faster, have Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a number of other new features, the touchscreens will respond a lot quicker as well. That’s sure to increase the occupants’ level of enjoyment.

The current Uconnect 8.4 navigational system that’s available on many models of Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles allows drivers to access the digital audio and navigation system and make hands-free phone calls using an 8.4-inch touchscreen. It also lets occupants of the vehicle do online destination searches powered by a data connection. The new Uconnect adds a capacitive touchscreen and the ability to plug in Android and iPhones into the car and use touch and voice commands to access the phone’s apps, texting, navigation, and other features, and you can check them out, when available, at Las Vegas Dodge.

This is an important step forward for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Many of its competitors already have this technology available throughout their vehicle lines. Some of the automotive companies which already have in-car technology which connects to Android Auto and Apple Carplay include Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Chevrolet, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Subaru, Suzuki, and Volvo.
Acura, Bentley, Infiniti, Maserati, Renault, Seat, Skoda, and Volkswagen have Android Auto. BMW, Citroen, Ferrari, Jaguar-Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, and Toyota go with Apple CarPlay.

Adding an upgraded Uconnect is a great move for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It moves them to the head of the class in terms of connectivity. While it takes more than that to sell automobiles, having improved connectivity can’t hurt. With a growing number of car enthusiasts also being into the latest hands-free technology, having both Android Auto and Apple Carplay might push people that are on the fence a little closer to buying a Dodge, Chrysler, or Jeep auto mobile.

The leadership at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles hasn’t yet said which of their models will be equipped with the new Uconnect system. However, in their press release they did say that it would be available in some of their automobiles in the 2016 model year.
