Users access and control the Uconnect system via a touchscreen in the vehicle’s dashboard and  vehicles that have Uconnect 5.0 have a five-inch touchscreen and vehicles that have Uconnect 8.4 or 8.4NAV have an 8.4-inch touchscreen.

Learn About Florida Law HB 131 for National Heat Awareness Day

heat-awarness-and-window-break-law-kendall-dodge-chrysler-jeep-ram

May 24th is National Heat Awareness Day and the day was created to remind people about the seriousness (even deadliness) of high temperatures and sun exposure before summer. National Heat Awareness Day is especially important to South Floridians because the high temperatures and sunny days aren’t just around during the summer months, and temperatures exceeding 70 degrees can be deadly to children or animals left in cars.

With that being said, are you aware of the Florida law HB 131? If not, read up, it could save a life of an animal or child left unattended in a vehicle, and on the other hand, if you don’t really know what the law specifies, you could actually get yourself in trouble.

The Florida legislature passed HB 131 in March 2016 to try to prevent the number of children and animal deaths caused by vehicular heat stroke from being left in a car. HB 131 provides immunity from civil liability of vehicle damage to civilians who break the window of a vehicle to rescue an unattended child or pet that is locked in a vehicle and showing signs of immediate danger. But before breaking a window to help a child or animal, it is very important that the civilian critically thinks about the situation and assesses if the person or animal is in immediate danger, otherwise the civilian could be held liable for the damage. You can read the full text of HB 131 here. [click to continue…]

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the Perfect College Car – Yes, Really!

chrysler pacifica hybrid for college students

Looking for the perfect vehicle for your new college student? Look no further, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is perfect for him or her. Yes, it is a minivan, but it’s actually a pretty cool vehicle.  Sustainability, safety, space, and technology are just some of the many reasons the hybrid van is perfect for a college student.

Size

Size is actually a pretty important vehicle factor for college students. Not only is having room for friends important, but a big vehicle is super helpful during tailgate season and when it comes time to move. The Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid have tons of room for cargo and it’s available with seven or eight seats.

Additionally, the Pacifica has Chrysler’s innovative Stow ‘n Go seating storage, which makes it easy for users to fold the second- and third-row seats into built-in floor storage. When folded down,  to open up a large flat space that has up to 140.5 cubic feet of room for cargo. The Pacifica Hybrid also has Stow ‘n Go seating but due to the vehicle’s big battery has Stow ‘n Go storage seating, but it is only in the vehicle’s third row.

Sustainability and Performance

When car shopping, millennials seem to gravitate towards the same features and one of the big ones is sustainability and eco-friendliness. However, a vehicle that has 7 or 8 passenger-seating for friends that is also big enough moving usually isn’t very fuel efficient, but that’s not the case with the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.

Chrysler Pacifica v. Fastback Coupe on the Track

chrysler pacifica vs toyota 86

Each year, Cars.com names a vehicle as the year’s Best Of and this year the Chrysler Pacifica was the Best of 2017 Award winner. But, when the editors test drove the Pacifica, they noticed something interesting – it accelerated similarly to the Best of 2013 Award winner,  the Scion FR-S, which is now known as the Toyota 86.. So with that curiosity, Cars.com took both vehicles to the track to test out if Chrysler’s minivan could really accelerate as well as the Toyota FRS, and the results were surprising.

Link to Video – Check it out! 

The Pacifica went head-to-head with the Toyota 86 and beat it going 0-60 mph and in a quarter-mile race. Yep, you heard that right. The Chrysler Pacifica accelerated from 0-60 mph in 8 seconds and the Toyota 86 accelerated from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds. When it came down to the quarter-mile race, the Pacifica finished in 15.9 seconds and the Toyota 86 finished in 16.3 seconds.

Jeep and Chrysler Vehicles Are Ready for Summer, Are You?

jeep for the summer

Summer officially starts next month (June) – are you ready for the beach, road trips, fishing, camping and more? You could be even more ready with a lease or purchase of a new Jeep or Chrysler, here’s why:

Jeep

Every Jeep model from the Wrangler to the Compass has unique features to make your life easier in the summer!

  • Are you outdoorsy? Camping, fishing, hiking, and more is so much easier with an SUV. Considering all Jeeps are SUVs, you have plenty to choose from! Not to mention, models like the Renegade, Cherokee, and Compass have the option of a roof rack to carry extra cargo.
  • Do you like to explore and adventure?  Then a Jeep vehicle is perfect for you. Every Jeep model is available or standard with 4×4 option (standard on all Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models). Plus, all Jeep models have at least one trim that is Trail Rated.
  • Are you tired of burning your hand on the seat or steering wheel after a hot day in the parking lot? Then get a Jeep! Nearly every Jeep model is available with deep tinted glass, which will protect your vehicle from the sun while it sits outside all day. Keep in mind this doesn’t apply if you have a Wrangler with the door and/or top off.

First there was news about the Pacifica Hybrid, then the news of a possible EV, the Braunability wheelchair accessible model, and now another trim level is joining the lineup.
