What to Drive Now
April, 2017 - Issue #150
Go Fast & Gas Last
There's nothing more disheartening than when you're flying high on an adrenaline rush in your muscle car, feeling like the king of the world, only to be dragged back down to earth courtesy of that annoying "low fuel" light. It's like the boxer that does really well for one round and then gets knocked out because he's, like that inefficient muscle car, "out of gas."
You can't cruise when you've got the low-fuel-efficiency blues!
Now imagine a muscle car that boasts an 18.5-gallon fuel tank with a distance range that can exceed 500 miles after one trip to the pump. That's like going from Valencia to Vegas and halfway back again before having to stop for gas - and it's sure to be your best bet of the trip, too.
When you want that perfect combination of superior speed and optimum fuel efficiency, look no further than the Dodge Charger. Its 485-hp 6.4L HEMI V8 engine will leave other cars in its wake and the Fuel Saver Technology transforms the engine seamlessly from V8 power to an efficient four-cylinder power plant in less than a tenth of a second. This just might make this ride the hunkiest environmentalist ever; move over, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Room to Bloom
You never think you're going to need a lot of space in your vehicle until you need a lot of space in your vehicle. When it's time to pack up, pick up, move out or move on, you can either go to your local rental company and pay out the nose per mile for a pick up that's dirtier than a rated-R movie... or you could use your Pacifica.
It doesn't matter whether you're hauling people or furniture, camping equipment, groceries, or whatever circumstances drop on your doorstep; your Chrysler Pacifica provides you with plenty of space for cargo or seating for up to eight passengers.
Need room for even more stuff? The Chrysler Pacifica provides a Best-In-Class maximum towing capacity of 3,600 pounds - meaning if you can fit it, you can tow it safely, thanks to over 100 standard and available security features.
Look, we've all got baggage. It's how you carry it that tells the story. With LED lighting, dual-screen rear entertainment, chrome accents and available 20-inch aluminum wheels, it's safe to say you'll be carrying yours in style.
Don't Bust with Trust
Loyalty's important. When you drive as often as the average Southern Californian, you need a truck you can trust.
That's why it's a big deal that the 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 has the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton pickup on the market. You can trust that you'll have the storage you need thanks to the Class-Exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System which provides you with more space options without sacrificing the functionality of your bed.
You can trust in the power of the 5.7 HEMI V8 Engine - an engine as iconic as the truck it resides within, as well as Torqueflite 8 Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission which incorporates a thermal management system that optimizes automatic transmission fluid temperature for impressive efficiency and durability. And finally, you can trust that the most advanced safety and security technology available makes the Dodge Ram 1500 your trusted stead to and from all of life's adventures.
Let's Hear it for the Adventurous Spirit
Indiana Jones would have gone on a lot more adventures had he been driving the Jeep Cherokee Latitude. Whether you're evading sword-wielding enemies or just parallel parking, The ParkView Rear Back Up Camera allows you to back away from danger or back into a parking space with confidence thanks to dynamic-distance grid lines when the vehicle is shifted into reverse. And if you want to check out the stars while you're driving or make a quick getaway into the helicopter that's hovering above you, the My Sky dual-panel roof has you covered. No matter your adventure, the Selec-Terrain traction control will have you driving smoothly whether it's off to the city for dinner or zipping through the desert. Plus, it's a lot easier to avoid immediate danger and peril when you can talk to your lifeline via the Uconnect System featuring hands-free calling!
