2017 Chrysler Pacifica: Not Your Parents Minivan


Remember when minivans meant mom jeans

and forgotten French fries under the seat? The All-

New 2017 Chrysler Pacifica helps to put those dull

days behind us! Set for a spring 2016 release, the

Pacifica hopes to bring new life to the forgotten

concept of family transportation.

The new Pacifica will be available in both

conventional and plug-in-hybrid versions

and offers a ton of technology, including a

rear entertainment system with twin 10-inch

touchscreens, an available vacuum cleaner

and hands-free operation of the sliding doors

and liftgate. Nonhybrid models seat seven as

standard, or eight with the optional removable

second-row middle seat – room for the whole

family, and maybe even some friends!

The standard Pacifica will use an updated

version of Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6,

which boasts two-stage variable valve lift,

cooled exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR), a revised

variable-valve-timing system, and a multitude of

weight-saving measures. It’s mated to a standard

nine-speed automatic transmission. The upshot

is 287 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, as well

as increased efficiency.

The Pacifica hybrid – the first gas-electric

minivan in our market – uses a 3.6-liter V-6, a

16-kWh battery pack, and a twin-electric-motor

setup to produce 260 total system horsepower, as

well as to deliver 80 MPGe in the city.

The Pacifica’s piles of technology can be split

into two categories: safety and convenience. To

keep occupants safe and sheetmetal unbent,

the Pacifica offers a 360-degree camera view,

automatic parallel and perpendicular parking,

forward-collision warning and mitigation, lanedeparture

warning and mitigation, rear backup

sensing with automatic braking, adaptive cruise

control that will bring the van to a complete stop

and hold it there, and several other active and

passive systems.

The New 2015 Chrysler 300

Back in 2005, the Chrysler 300 helped put Chrysler back on the map. This full-sized sedan comes with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that produces up to 292 horsepower while delivering efficient fuel economy ratings of 19 city / 31 highway mpg. It’s been 10 years since the original release of the Chrysler 300 and the new 2015 300 has earned back its presence in the automotive industry with its improved design.


The outside of the new 300, has a more slanted front-end design. The headlights are angled backward and the grill (which before was upright) now flows down the face of the vehicle. The rear end of the 300 now shares elements of the New Chrysler 200 with its tapered exhaust outlets. A new wheel design has been introduced and the taillights have a light chrome trim at their base. Changes to the interior of the 2015, 300 were also made. There is a new 8.4 inch U-Connect Touch screen color display that allows access to your music library, and the 200’s rotary shift knob was also adopted into the design.


Whether you opt for the 3.6-liter V-6 or the V-8, each 2015 Chrysler 300 now comes packed with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the All wheel drive option for the V-6 models is totally outrageous. The 300 also come with a few added safety features, such as a forward collision warning with auto-brakes , lane-departure and lane keeping assist functions, cruise control and a 9-1-1 assistant that activates in the event of a car accident or with the push of a button.


With its unique mix of power, style, power and value, the 2015 Chrysler 300 is a choice pick for a full-size sedan. Anyone looking for a confortable ride should definitely consider this vehicle. So come on down and visit us here at Fred Martin Superstore, or our website http://www.fredmartinsuperstore.com, and test one out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed with your experience!

Jeep Renegade

Jeep Renegade


The new 2015 Jeep Renegade was created for one simple mission: to bring in a new entry-level model that is different from the Patriot and Compass. It has been stated officially that the Renegade is not a replacement for the other current jeep models so fans of the current models have nothing to fear. The Jeep Renegade is expected to hit dealer showrooms by early next year at a base price below $20,000.

The design for the Renegade slightly resembles a more outgoing version of the Wrangler Unlimited; however Jeep designers made sure to not make it appear cartoonish. The black trim and grille gives the Renegade a bit more attitude, and the taillights are rectangular, with a large X in the center—resembling army jerry cans. With a palette selection of about ten colors, the Renegade will have as many color options as the Jeep Wrangler. The signature feature on the Renegade are the removable composite roof panels called “My SKY”, which can be described as a T-top rotated 90 degrees.


As for the Renegade’s powertrain, it comes with a few different options. The base unit borrows from the Dodge Dart’s four-cylinder engine, a turbocharged 1.4-liter with 160 horsepower. The base model comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Four-wheel drive is available on all Renegades. The Jeep Renegade is extremely fuel efficient at around 30 mpg on the highway.


The All New Eco-Friendly Ram 1500


The new Eco-vehicle phenomenon is finally starting to catch traction nationwide, and Ram pick-up trucks are leading the way in setting a whole new standard in fuel economy. Ram trucks are globally recognized for their horsepower and often used for hard work on construction sites and family farms. They continue to be extremely popular in the US. Until now, they have not been known for their fuel economy but the Dodge Ram 1500 has just raised the bar, with the help of its V6 Eco Diesel Engine.

The Ram truck was named Truck of the year by Motor Trend, in 2013 and 2014. This was the first time a truck has won back to back awards. Other contenders included the Ford F150, Toyota Tundra, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. So how is it that a truck, which technically hit the market in 2012, can out-perform a range of vehicles from 2014? The simplest answer would be that technological advances that have occurred in the last few years have made it possible to increase fuel efficiency and remain cost effective.

Motor Trend magazine conducted mpg tests and the results showed that the Ram 1500 pushes 19-27 miles per gallon depending on test circumstances (highway vs off road). These numbers are a welcome increase and offer the best fuel economy ever recorded for a pick-up. The new Dodge Ram 1500 is a fantastic choice for buyers who are looking for an environmentally friendly pick-up without compromising horsepower.

2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT

After months of hiding, the new 2015 Challenger SRT along with its Hellcat engine are finally available to be admired by all. Already, Dodge President Tim Kuniskis has christened this 707hp powerhouse with the title “the ultimate performance muscle car.” Speed demons will definitely want to add this bad boy to their collection.

Plenty of time was spent in the wind tunnel developing the exterior of the Challenger SRT Hellcat and it shows. According to Chrysler, the re-engineered Challenger maximizes aerodynamic performance for both racing and spirited driving. The front of this vehicle has a new fascia design along with an all-new vertical-split on the grille; it provides an update to the ’71 look. The large power-bulge hood draws in cool air to help keep the engine cooled. The design was visually inspired from the first Viper coupe built in ’96. The Challenger Hellcat also has a larger front splitter to optimize down force which counterbalances lift. The rear valance was also redesigned to make the model look wider, lower, and more stable, while the taller rear spoiler unique to the SRT Hellcat features a SRT logo.

The all-new cockpit of the SRT Hellcat also draws inspiration from its ’71 predecessor. The newly designed instrument panel has a stamped bezel and a 7-inch information display screen in the center of the gauge cluster. Speedometer and tachometer gauges that flash a retro look flank the center screen.

There are plenty of features this monster has to boast about, but overall it is a remarkable product of engineering.  Starting at an MSRP of $59,995 and generating a whopping 707hp, this vehicle’s 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 engine is the most powerful ever built by Dodge. Be sure to keep an eye out for this star premiering on our lot in October 2014.
