Make This Fall Memorable with the New Chrysler Pacifica

chrysler-pacifica-kendall-chrysler

Fall is a great time of year. Tailgating, bonfires, camping, holidays, what could be better? We might have the answer to that. The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is a new minivan and it is the perfect vehicle for fall activities. Let us explain.

Tailgating

It’s fall and that means it’s time for football and some tailgating. It’s about as American as apple pie. If you are taking your kids’ to their first tailgate this fall, the Pacifica is an awesome vehicle for that.  The Pacifica has Stow n’ Go seating, which makes it really easy to fold the second- and third-row seats into the floor storage compartments, allowing for tons of flat storage space. Or if you have a van full of passengers, the floor compartments that would store the folded seats, doubles as storage space. So you can load up all of the food and drinks in those compartments and put the grill and chairs in the back.

pacifica-kendall-chrysler

Though a new minivan model, the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is no stranger to awards, and they keep on coming. The new Pacifica was awarded for its panoramic sunroof by the  Southern Automotive Media Association at Topless in Miami, earned a spot on the Wards 10 Best Interiors List for 2016, and was voted the “Family Car of Texas” by Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA).

Just recently, the Pacifica has added two more significant awards to the trophy case. Chrysler announced it is an IIHS Top Safety Pick and WardsAuto awarded it for its UX (User Experience). Don’t expect the news to stop either, the Pacifica will increase its award-winning potential when it adds the Pacifica Hybrid to the lineup later this year.

Get Your Car Summer Ready

summer-kendall-LandscaperY

It is important to keep your car protected from the hot Florida sun and the rainstorms. Here are a few ways to keep your car in shape this summer.

Hey, you may not want to, but we’re lucky — our friends up north need to get an inspection before winter and summer.

During the inspection a mechanic will check your battery, A/C, tires, hoses, belts and brakes. Be sure to follow up with them about how these parts looked because they are specifically affected by heat. If your mechanic tells you there are a lot of mechanical problems that need to be fixed and you can’t afford it, ask him which ones are most important and prioritize them. Depending on the problem, waiting can make a car problem increasingly worse the longer it goes not fixed.

Something the typical car owner may not know is that the moist, salt and humid air in Florida can cause a variety of problems with cars, all the way from engine to paint issues. [click to continue…]

Moms and Dads, Meet the the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is here to restore the reputation of minivans across the U.S. Not only is hilarious comedian, Jim Gaffigan a spokesperson for the minivan, but the Pacifica is also cool because it is packed with awesome and unique new interior and exterior features, some of which are one-of-a-kind to the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Below are some of the highlights and features on the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

The Basics:

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is equipped with a 3.6-liter, 287 horsepower, V6 engine that has a fuel economy of 18 MPG in the city and 28 MPG when on the highway — that’s one of the best fuel economies available on a minivan in the U.S. Even better, this fall a hybrid Pacifica will be available — the first hybrid minivan ever. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica starts out at $28,595.

Interior Room

The Chrysler Pacifica incorporates Stow ‘N Go seating. This feature means the seats can easily fold down into the floor, allowing for 140.5 feet of cargo space in the second row, and a total of 200 cubic feet of cargo space throughout the minivan. The Stow and Go seats fold into the ground and allow for flat storage space in the second row That’s impressive! Also cool is that the second row seats easily tilt to allow passengers easy access into third-row seating. [click to continue…]

Best Chrysler Vehicles for a Teen Driver

Whether you are shopping for a new or quality previously owned vehicle for your new teen driver, your local Miami Chrysler dealership will have just what you need. Chrysler has been producing quality vehicles since the 1920s. Over nearly a century, it has produced some of the most beloved vehicles in automotive history.

You don’t need to buy your teen a classic car to get good quality. But you can buy your teen a modern-day Chrysler that builds on that tradition of excellence, providing your teen a safe and reliable ride.

The current Chrysler line-up has only three models, which are all great choices for any driver. However, when you look at the previously owned selection of Chrysler vehicles, you will find many more suitable options for a great price.

Here are a few of the best Chrysler vehicles you should consider for your teen driver: [click to continue…]

A Brief History of the Chrysler PT Cruiser

PT-1

When the Chrysler PT Cruiser first hit the market in 2001, the retro styled five-door hatchback took the market by storm. Over time, rival brands released their own retro cars, decreasing the popularity of Chrysler’s vehicle. By 2009, there were rumors that the vehicle would be discontinued in Mexico and Canada, and by 2010, the vehicle’s production was ended altogether.

The PT Cruiser is still a popular purchase on the used car market, and Chrysler should be commended for making the retro-style hatchback a popular purchase among car buyers. Before you head out to your local Chrysler dealer in Miami, Florida, check out a brief history of the iconic PT Cruiser…

Chryslers’ Dynamometer – Ultimate Vehicle Stress Test

icedengine

Anyone who is an engine fanatic knows what a dynamometer is. Those in the know call it a “dyno” – let’s face it…….it sounds cooler. Often times you read about a mobile “dyno” for motorcycles. It is the same principle of what Chrysler has built but on a much smaller scale and no cool weather simulations.

No matter what you call it or how you are exposed to it Chrysler has one that they spent $2.5 Million dollars on. With a price tag like that you can rest assured that it has some pretty impressive bells and whistles.

That ain’t no chump change. In fact, it just may be the biggest most expensive facility of its kind in North America.

Typically, you may think of hot rods and muscle cars when you hear about a “dyno tuned engine”. We have seen some Chryslers in Miami, Florida take advantage of suped up custom engines thanks to “dynos” but they are not just for hot rods.

The process for “dyno” enthusiasts is a fairly simple process. You car will be put on a dyno, and hooked to a laptop via the ODB port under the steering wheel. They will make a few passes with the stock car to get a baseline reading.

After that the tuner can adjust the air/fuel ratio, advance the timing, remove rev limiters etc. They will adjust many things while making dyno runs in between changes to find the very best combo for your motor. But the Chryslers facility goes way beyond this.
