2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon 24/04/2017 12:00:00 AM

Jeep continues its trend of producing special editions of the rugged SUVs in its lineup, with the latest addition being its most off-road ready vehicle ever, the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon. This new model climbs atop the Rubicon Hard Rock as the new top dog in the Wrangler lineup.

Jeep has been making true sport utility vehicles since long before it became a "thing" for city dwellers unlikely ever to stray from the asphalt. Cute, so apt a description of so many of the not-really-utility vehicles nearly ubiquitous in our cities, is not really a word in the Jeep vocabulary.


Return of the Demon 20/02/2017 12:00:00 AM

Dodge is set to make quite a splash at the upcoming New York International Auto Show in April 2017 with the unveiling of its resurrection of the automaker's Demon-tagged performance car. The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will follow some two years after the company took the industry by storm with the launch of the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat, two of the most powerful and fastest muscle cars to ever be declared street-legal.

Dodge has been progressively releasing a series of teaser videos - that you can check out right here - and posting other juicy information about the highly anticipated new performance model. Each subsequent release provides viewers with more eye candy regarding the Demon, its sleek look and its long, long list of bling, cutting-edge systems and outrageous performance capabilities.

Performance Heritage

Dodge has long been synonymous with performance for North American consumers, and with the company's consolidation of the SRT brand it is signaling its firm intention to focus on those performance roots with every model it produces. In each segment it features in, Dodge is situating its model as the mainstream performance version of choice, while the SRT takes the high performance road, with pulse-raising results. Now the company is set to resurrect the Demon tag, which first featured in the Dodge lineup back in 1971.

Extras Galore

For many muscle car lovers, one of the features - other than its wider body - that will make the SRT Demon stand out from the rest is the host of extras it will come with. It starts with the custom-painted crate each Demon will be delivered in, adorned with a metal tag displaying with the vehicle's VIN number and the buyer's name.

A Dodge Durango SRT with 475 HP under the hood in 2017? 22/12/2016 12:00:00 AM

The muscular three-row Durango SUV from Dodge may be getting a whole lot beefier in 2017, as word had been circulating that there may be an SRT version on the way next year with a 475-horsepower engine.

The Durango has never been a slouch in the power department, as evidenced by the R/T version of the SUV that has been around since 2000. Its 360 HP V8 engine may not have put the R/T in the category of the truly heavyweight performance SUVs on the market, but if rumours that the SRT may indeed inherit the 475 HP engine used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT prove to be true, all of that is about to change.

As it happens the Jeep and Dodge SUVs already share the same platform. Factor in that imposing new engine bloc, and we expect that the new Durango SRT will benefit from the same impressive acceleration of 4.6 seconds to go from a stop to 100 km/h. When you consider that the Durango R/T's time was 6.2 seconds, you begin to see why Dodge dealers, enthusiasts and potential buyers are pretty excited about the possibility.

It's also expected that the Durango SRT will feature some esthetic revisions in comparison to the existing models, notably to the front end in order to increase the aggression factor.

The highly anticipated new Durango version would mark the first time Chrysler's SRT (Street and Racing Technology) team takes on the model. As 2017 draws closer and closer, here's hoping the rumours are well-founded!

Canada's Favourite Crossover: The 2017 Dodge Journey 10/12/2016 12:00:00 AM

Look up 'crossover' in the dictionary, and if it doesn't have an image of the 2017 Dodge Journey, well we think it should. It's hard to imagine a vehicle that more fully embodies the concept of what a crossover should be. Versatility, comfort, safety, performance, reliability - the 2017 Dodge Journey gets top marks from Canadian consumers on all these fronts.

Versatility

The new edition of the Journey comes with either 5- or 7-passenger seating thanks to an available third row, which you'll be glad to know is easily accessible thanks to the Tilt 'n Slide system that moves the second row forward with just one pull of a lever. The Best-in-Class storage space offered by the Journey is more than plentiful, particularly with the available Flip 'n Stow fold-flat front -passenger seat that includes in-seat storage space.

Comfort

Also available is a 10-way power driver's seat with 4-way lumbar support, which lets you set your ideal seating position. And all of the occupants will enjoy the full-length floor console complete with premium armrest, as well as the available leather-faced seats that provide extra support.

Safety

If peace of mind is important to you and yours, the 2017 Dodge Journey offers an unmatched group of more than 50 standard and available features that incorporate the latest technological advances. Standard Electronic Stability Control and 4-wheel antilock disc brakes with Brake Assist keep you on the road, while cutting-edge parking assist systems and keyless entry make your life that much easier, every day. The center console screen also can display the available ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera, supplemented by the available Park-Sense Rear Park Assist that uses ultrasonic sensors to detect objects behind the vehicle. Did we mention the seven standard airbags?

Performance

Powered by a 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 engine that delivers up to 283 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque, the new Journey manages to avoid any compromise in terms of either performance or fuel efficiency. Three times chosen to Ward's Magazine's list of 10 Best engines, the V6 offers muscle to spare while coming in at 9.5L/100 km for fuel consumption on highway. It's twinned with a 6-speed automatic transmission that includes a semi-manual mode. Dodge has also included an on-demand all-wheel drive system that automatically sends power to the rear wheels when detecting slippery road conditions, further optimizing fuel efficiency.

Reliability

The reputation of the Dodge Journey has long been made when it comes to providing reliable transportation, even in the coldest Canadian weather. The carmaker has been adamant about using high-quality components and materials in the cabin and under the hood, and the result is lower maintenance and repair costs during the ownership period. What's not to like? Test drive the new 2017 Dodge Journey today and see for yourself what a remarkable crossover this is!

Wards: 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Offers Top-10 Best User Experience 21/11/2016 12:00:00 AM

The brand-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan continues to accumulate the awards since its introduction, with WardsAuto magazine weighing in by bestowing it with a spot on its newly created Top 10 Best User Experience list.

Criteria for establishing the ranking revolved around a number of elements, such as ease of use, quality of the infotainment, sound and connectivity systems, presence of driver assistance and other cutting-edge safety technologies, system compatibility and materials used. 29 models in all were considered for the Top 10 list.

Like Royalty

Evidently, the Pacifica was able to impress the WardsAuto editors, to the point where Tom Murphy, the magazine's senior editor, commented, "The Pacifica treats occupants of all ages, especially the young, like royalty." Pointing out the vehicle's near-infinite number of amenities designed to make family travel as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, he added that the days of children getting cabin fever may be over, "no matter how long the road trip. It's a family-friendly rolling entertainment center."

Chrysler was a pioneer and continues to be a leader in the family transportation domain, and the Pacifica is the proud inheritor of this legacy. Chrysler engineers focused on two key aspects of the ownership experience when designing the new Pacifica: Access to the latest technological advances and amenities, and user-friendliness and comfort.

Tech: at the Forefront

You could convincingly argue that no family vehicle has ever been as fully equipped as the new Pacifica with tech features that are designed to meet the needs of all family members. The brand-new Uconnect Theater entertainment system features two 10-inch touchscreen displays, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a BluRay player for the rear seats and much more; the driver has access to a full-colour 7-inch information display. Occupants can plug in their devices, browse online and stream content, all viewable on the two high-definition 10-inch screens.

Life Made Easy. and Safer

Chrysler included elements like a Keyless Enter 'n Go system, an available KeySense key fob for limiting speed and audio volume, hands-free sliding doors and liftgate (which respond to kicking motions under the sliding door or rear bumper), an Easy Tilt-equipped second row of seats and a host of driver-assist technologies like the forward Collision Warning-Plus and ParkSense rear park assist. Why? Because today's drivers expect nothing less than all the best and latest safety, comfort and convenience features available to be included in their family minivan. It's that simple.

Premium Options

Also available as options for the new 2017 Pacifica are such hard-to-resist goodies as a Stow 'n Vac integrated vacuum and Stow 'n Go seating and storage system (that has been retooled to make it even easier to use, and now comes with a Stow 'n Go Assist feature).
