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.


Durango Takes Other SUVs to School

With a suite of technology that includes dual DVD Blu-Ray, the patented Dodge UConnect navigation system, a customizable digital cluster and driver’s assistance safety features, the new Dodge Durango has more electronic bells and whistles than any other SUV in its price range. Keyless “Enter ‘N Go” allows you to open all the doors with just a pull on one handle, then start the engine by tapping on the brake peddle. Driver seat memory lets you store your perfect position so you can find it again after someone else drives the car. See all the Durango has to offer by taking a drive to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.

Five Trim Levels Offer Different Features

Even the base SXT Durango, which starts at just a skosh over $30,000, has standard features like a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, GPS antenna, voice command, media inputs for SD, USB and an auxiliary cable and steering wheel mounted stereo controls. Step up to the SXT Plus and you can add navigation, a remote CD player, larger touchscreen and UConnect 8.4. The Limited model comes with the larger touchscreen standard, charging ports and the optional DVD entertainment system. The Citadel offers heated leather seats, power driver and passenger seats and 20-inch polished wheels.

R/T Means Ready for the Track

If you’re looking for a little more performance out of your Durango, step up all the way to the R/T model. It comes with a 360 horsepower HEMI V8 that also delivers 390 pound feet of torque. Although the HEMI provides a welcome rumble, you might be inclined to drown it out with the best audio system Chrysler offers. The BeatsAudio delivers quality concert hall sound to make those long trips or short commutes much more pleasurable. If you want your Durango R/T to be the baddest one in town, consider adding the Blacktop appearance group, which includes 20-inch black glossy wheels, a black crosshair grille, black badging, black mirrors and black fog lamp bezels. It also adds Capri leather seats with suede inserts for the most comfy ride in town.

Flexible Seating Provides Room for People in Cargo

Head over to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas and spend some time playing with all the different seat configurations that come with the new Dodge Durango. You can sit up to seven people or utilize 50 different combinations of seats and cargo space to fit to just about any load. The Durango has 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which makes it one of the most utilitarian SUVs on the planet.


Shades of Exhilaration! Pick a Sporty Color

The wow factor for the new Dodge Dart starts with the exterior, with a wide array of bright paint colors like Redline Red Pearl, Go Mango, Laser Blue Pearl and Granite Crystal Metallic that deliver notice to the world that this is a sporty car. The racetrack taillight assembly utilizes 152 individual LED lights to announce your departure with authority to all those behind you. Choose from nine different wheel packages to compliment your available dual exhaust to add just a touch of swagger that is not usually found on something classified as a compact car. Despite all the attitude, the 2016 Dodge Dart still delivers up to 41 mpg while producing up to a peppy 184 horsepower. Now is the perfect time to head to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas and take advantage of offers saving you up to $4,250 in combined cash.

New Dart Sporty, Yet Safe

You’ll fall in love with the look of the new Dart, yet it may be the stiff overall structure and passenger protection features that you really grow to love. The Dart has 10 airbags strategically placed to protect the driver and passengers in the event of a crash. Active front head restraints help avoid whiplash as the result of rear end collisions. Blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, rearview camera and electronic stability control are some other available features that help keep you in control and heading to your destination.

Dart Most Technologically Advanced in its Class

Compact cars are mostly known for being boring little machines that will get you from one place to another without spending too much on gas. The Dodge Dart will definitely get you there and save on fuel, but it is loaded with goodies to help make your drive infinitely more fun. The UConnect infotainment system provides voice recognition to help you keep your eyes on the road while making a phone call, changing the music source or entering a navigation point. A large digital driver information cluster display provides real-time information at a moment’s glance. Awesome high-definition graphics let you monitor your fuel consumption and other diagnostics. Navigation is right in your line-of-sight, providing turn-by-turn directions without distracting you from your driving duties. Keyless entry and concert hall sound add to the list of technological goodies.

Choose Your Engine and Performance

Pick from one of three engines to maximize performance or fuel economy. The 2.0L Tigershark engine is a four-cylinder beast that has 16 valves and produces 160 horsepower. The 1.4L Multiair Turbo engine is the most efficient, delivering 41 mpg while still producing 160 horsepower. For a little more pep, consider choosing the 2.4L Tigershark Multiair engine, which still gets 35 mpg on the highway while pumping out 184 horses. Test-drive the various engines at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas to see which one best fits your needs.

New Off-road Truck Coming This Fall

A five-link coil suspension system helps smooth out the ride, especially when paired with Firestone LT 275/70R 18E OWL tires, which have specially designed grooves to help eliminate mud and debris and provide more traction.

Skid Plate Helps Protect Oil Pan and Transfer Case

A heavy duty steel skid plate is strategically placed under the engine to help ward off damage from unseen rocks, tree trunks and other large obstacles. To help keep the Ram 2500 under control when heading down steep declines, standard Hill-descent Control uses the engine to slow the vehicle down without the need to shift or apply the brakes. A locking rear differential keeps both wheels turning to provide maximum traction, then unlocks when you head out on the highway for a better driving experience.
