The 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT is a real head-turner, and there is a reason why people think it is the ultimate muscle car. Though, some wonder if a V6 engine can be a muscle car. While this is a concern that many have, the truth is that the Dodge Challenger SXT has a ton of power and a true muscle feel, and it is obvious to anyone who gets behind the wheel and starts driving one.

Owens of the Dodge Challenger SXT are treated to a peppy 3.6 liter V6 engine, which is very adequate for day-to-day driving or taking the car up a mountain road. If you test drive a Dodge Challenger SXT on city streets, you won’t feel the full power of this beast. But, if you can take it out to an open and deserted road, you will love the 305 horsepower and cruise control. This car is made to go a little fast, and if you are cruising down the freeway, you will find it comfortable. The truth is, with all the power at your disposal, it will be hard to keep it under the speed limit.

Drivers of the Challenger SXT get a nice engine and still enjoy 19 MPG in the city and 30 on the highway, which is nothing to sneeze at, though most drivers will have a hard time getting that gas mileage as it is a powerful engine, and it is fun to rev up. To see how powerful this V6 engine is, you can test one out and take it for a spin by going to Chapman Dodge. Then, you can see for yourself that this is a truly impressive muscle car.

While the SXT doesn’t sport the 707 horsepower engine that the top of the lineup offers, if you want to get a muscle car and not break the bank, the SXT is the car to get as it can be had for well under 30k. Without a doubt, you will feel the luxury as it comes with a Uconnect infotainment center with a 5 inch touch screen. It also comes with USB, Bluetooth and an auxiliary input. With six speakers, drivers and passengers alike will love the tunes, and the driver also is treated to a six-way power driver’s seat. In addition, with the SXT, buyers are treated to a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, remote start (with the automatic transmission version) and plenty of other features and available add-ons.

If you are in the mood for a muscle car, you have other options with the Dodge Challenger. The SXT is great as it gets very formidable gas mileage, and it has a much lower price tag, all while giving the driver a lot of power, luxury and comfort. If you can afford it, you should check out a Challenger at Las Vegas Dodge.

The Dodge Challenger SXT is a great combination of power, drivability and reliability. If you are in the market for a muscle car and don’t want to break the bank, you should consider checking out the 2016 Dodge Challenger SXT. You are sure to love it.



Trailhawk Wears Trail-rated Badge With Pride

Owners of the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk can testify to the little SUV’s ability to take on the toughest trails, whether they involve rocks and crevices or water crossings. By earning the Trail-rated badge, the Renegade Trailhawk has proven its ability to provide traction, maneuverability, articulation, ground clearance and clear streams without causing the driver or passengers concern. The Renegade Trailhawk also has Best-in-Class 4×4 ability with Jeep Active Drive Low. This transmission is only available in the Trailhawk, providing the driver to crawl over really tough terrain without having a foot on the accelerator. Like other Jeep 4×4 systems, Active Drive Low switches between four-wheel and two-wheel drive as needed to provide the maximum fuel efficiency. Test drive the Jeep Renegade today at Chapman Jeep Las Vegas.

Driver Mode Dial Increases Flexibility

Each Jeep Renegade 4×4 offers a Selec-Terrain dial to help give you the maximum control for different kinds of road, or non-road, conditions. Auto gives the Jeep the flexibility to change traction settings as needed. Drivers can select Snow, Sand or Mud as necessary to get the best performance. The Renegade Trailhawk model has a Rock setting for those people who like to put their little Jeep to the ultimate challenge. The Selec-Terrain dial not only provides maximum control for the road conditions, but also delivers maximum fuel efficiency.

Trailhawk Has Additional Features

For the serious off-roader, the Trailhawk is outfitted with skid plates, tow hooks on both the front and back bumpers and a raised height for additional ground clearance. Like all Renegades, the Trailhawk has an impressive 2,000 pound towing capacity, which is more than enough for a pop-up or small travel trailer for those who really like to enjoy the outdoors. The 2.4L Tigershark engine produces 180 horsepower and 175 pound feet of torque, making the Renegade the mighty little off-roader that leaves other vehicles behind.

Design and Suspension Deliver Tough, Superior Ride

Jeep engineers had a challenge to design a suspension system that not only handled tough terrain, but also delivered a comfortable ride on the highway. Head over to Chapman Jeep Las Vegas and take a test drive to see just how comfortable the Renegade feels on the road. With a stiff body structure to absorb energy and selective damping in the front and rear struts, the Renegade absorbs the bumps of the road while having the ability to navigate nature’s toughest trails.

Dodge Charger

If you are a fan of the Dodge Charger and Dodge vehicles in general, you know how great they are and how fun they are to drive. Dodge knows this, and the company is always looking to improve upon its image and its cars. In fact, with the Dodge Charger, it would be easy to rest on its laurels and enjoy the dividends as the car is well-loved, but Dodge is no ordinary car company, and the new Charger will slim down and run a turbo four in the next generation.

Originally introduced in 2005 as a 2006 model, the Charger has been around for a long time, especially when you consider other brands and models out there. It has enjoyed two refreshes in the past, and each time it has improved on already great versions of its vehicles. Still, the company wants to keep the car going strong and ever-popular, and it is reportedly going under anther face lift one last time for 2019. After that, some huge changes are in store for this great car. To see how great of a car the Dodge Charger is, give one a spin at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas

One thing that may bring down the Dodge Charger is the weight. Depending on the engine size, it is currently between 3,900 and nearly 4,6000 pounds. While true, it has a beast of an engine and still offers impressive quarter mile and 0-60 times of around 5.0 seconds, depending on the size of the engine and car. With the weight loss, the car should get a boost in gas mileage, though it is probably not on most people’s minds. However, a weight reduction should also give drivers a better feel and quicker track times. The target weight for the car, according to the company, is 3,500 pounds.

If you have been a car buff for along time, you may remember the front-wheel drive four-cylinder Charger in the early 80s. If you do, you probably remember how great of a car it was. The recharged sedan will use a twin-turbo offering 300 horses and a four-cylinder engine. This is the same engine that is under development for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Don’t get too excited yet; it will still be a long time before we see one on the road. But, if you are looking to get a Dodge Charger now, you will get a quality vehicle as there is plenty of Dodge Charger Inventory, along with other cars, available. 

The advantage of the four-banger engine should be obvious. First and foremost, it should be more efficient and offer better fuel economy. While true, the fuel economy on current models is not bad, even with the larger engines. Not only that, with the four-cylinder, you will have plenty of power as it is a turbo. All in all, it should be a good fit for the Charger as you will get the best of both worlds – speed and power, along with fuel economy.

The Dodge Charger is a great car, and if you are interested in checking one out, you won’t regret it. If you can wait for a few years, you may be able to get your hands on an even better version, which may be hard to imagine.


Almost Quarter Century of Production

The Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly Plant recently celebrated the production of its 6 millionth vehicle, a feat that was 24 years in the making. The 75th Anniversary Grand Cherokee Jeep had its engine fired up at around 8:30 p.m. on May 25 as the production team readied it for delivery to a customer. “Reaching this milestone is a reflection of this plant’s commitment to supporting the continued growth of the Jeep brand around the world and playing a role in the comeback of Detroit,” according to plant manager Curt Towne. “Our employees are proud to be a part of this unique time in the history of both the company and the city. They understand that not only are they contributing to the success of FCA US, but they are proving that Detroit will always be the Motor City.” Many of the Grand Cherokees on the lot at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas were produced in the Jefferson Plant.

Plant Operational Two Shifts a Day

The way Detroit has rebounded from the auto industry collapse is evident in the production schedule at the Jefferson Plant. A total of 4,500 workers alternate schedules to keep the plant running two 10-hour shifts per day, six days each week. It only takes about a day and a half from the time a vehicle leaves the body shop to the time it rolls off the assembly line, ready for delivery. The 6 million vehicles that have come off the line would create a row of cars, trucks and SUVs that would stretch around the Earth one and a half times. Last year, the plant was responsible for the production of more than 365,000 vehicles, or one thousand vehicles each day.

Chrysler Invests $1.2 Billion in 1992

Chrysler originally invested more than a billion dollars in the Jefferson Plant back in 1972 when the Grand Cherokee was the main production vehicle. That investment not only included infrastructure, but also research, development and engineering of the new models. Along with the Grand Cherokee, the plant also produced the Jeep Commander and Dodge Durango. The new plant replaced another one nearby that produced over 8 million vehicles in an 83-year run that began in 1907.

Grand Cherokee Brings Sophistication to Four-Wheeling

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a long history of not only being one of the toughest four-wheel drive vehicles on the trail, but also one of the most comfortable. With features like an 8.4-inch touchscreen, navigation, sunroof and leather trim seats, the Big Daddy of the Jeep family makes a perfect daily driver that transforms into an off-road beast on the weekend. Check out the entire Grand Cherokee lineup at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.
