chrysler and kango partnership

Parents with two or more kids all know the struggle! All your children need to be in different places at one time. Too bad it isn’t possible to be in two places at once. However, with Chrysler and Kango’s new partnership, you won’t need to be in two places at once because you will always have backup!

Kango is a ride sharing company that is similar to Uber based in California. Well, Kango paired up with Chrysler to create what might be the most successful rideshare idea yet. This one-of-a-kind partnership has created a way for parents to get their children safely to where they need to go with a trusted driver.

We know what you are thinking, “how can I trust my kid with a random driver?” The answer is simple, this service has a serious and hard core background check that includes fingerprinting. Driving history, drug tests, and criminal history will all be part of this testing. Only those with the most clean records will be hired as drivers. [click to continue…]

Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep Get New Trim Options

Kendall Chrysler Jeep Dodge FCA Lineup

Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep are tweaking their trim lineups for the next model year. Starting in 2018, all three brands are going to have some new trims and features.

The changes couldn’t come at a better time, seeing how FCA will also be introducing new features and body paint colors to keep consumers’ interest in the older products. An example of this would be the Jeep Wrangler – it’s been around for a long time, yet Jeep releases new trims and special editions nearly every year.

For the 2018 model year, the 300 lineup will receive a new base trim, the Touring, followed by the Touring L, S, Limited, and C trims. This is to help bring the 300 into the wings of the Chrysler Pacifica minivan, currently the bread winner for the Chrysler auto brand.
