Not Your Typical Mini Van: Black Trim + Chrysler Pacifica S Package
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
For decades, minivans were not really thought of as stealth or aggressive, but now it's time to think again: Chrysler is now offering the S Appearance Package on the Touring Plus, Touring L, Touring L Plus, and Limited models. For just around $600, you can really “up the black” factor with a number of trim pieces, and for an extra $995, you can cap it off with a set of 20-inch wheels in black. You'll acquire the tough, steel-like appearance of a stealth agent by adding extra black to the grille, headlight accents, and rear valance molding. The Chrysler wing badges are black, as well as the “Pacifica” and “S” badges. 18-inch black alloy wheels are included, along with a black roof rack on every trim besides Touring Plus.
Once inside, it's not just black within your eyesight. Light gray accents are present on the instrument panel and steering wheel, as well as on the seats. The overhead console, headliner, visors, light bezels, pillar trim, center console, and seats are black as well. You'll also be able to enjoy 4G LTE wi-fi hotspot, and many great hours on the road with a vehicle that has earned praise from entities such as Daily News Autos, which named last year's model as the pick for overall best minivan. Just like the appearance of a tie or stealth new purse at a social function, we appreciate how black can quickly change the mood of any vehicle, and this package ups the ante and appeal quite a bit for the Pacifica.
A great choice for any busy Atlanta professional or full-fledged family, the Pacifica has a quiet, well-built cabin filled with quality materials, and boasts a very long list of standard and available features. Even over the roughest pavement, the Pacifica navigates well, with above-average acceleration, and fuel economy that is better than many competitors. This vehicle that Car and Driver deemed “better than the average crossover in a number of measurable ways” really is an awesome staple of the American driving culture. What really separates the Pacifica from many of the other options out there in the minivan sphere is its infotainment system and optional plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Truly a prime example of what can happen when the best and brightest collide in the engineering category, this the product of those who ingeniously wanted a “long live the minivan” sentiment to grow to epic proportions. What has been called the “world's cleverest stowable-seating system” will be sure to meet your needs during either a haul to Hartsfield Airport or trek to Tallulah Gorge State Park, as you won't have to be scrambling constantly to find extra room. Come pay us a visit and see how the vehicle that even boasts a built-in vacuum cleaner measures up, and gets ready to introduce the Pacifica into your 2018 escapades!
Hellfire Loose On The Strip: 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon Blazes On At Atco
Friday, October 13, 2017
Most of us here at Landmark Dodge have heard many questions asked about the new SRT Demon: this is a muscle car that has proudly used elements from the past and present to cook up one blistering bully of a snarling machine. The folks at Fox News took some time to document the fun that they had test driving it at Atco Dragway, located in the legendary Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Home to numerous sightings of the Jersey Devil, this is where they opened up the demon for a dozen action-packed runs on the track. This is an event that deserves the largest-size level of excitement that anyone could imagine: it is quite simply the most powerful American car ever made.
Under the hood is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that puts out 808 hp, and still manages to rank at 22 mph on the highway. This is an updated version of the Challenger SRT Hellcat's 707-hp motor, and adds the ultra-cool value of a tool-and-parts kit called the Demon Crate. By putting this to use, you can run the car on 100 octane gas, and enjoy the thrill of bumping the power up to 840 hp. Over half of the Hellcat engine's components were modified in the new version, including the block, and a 2.7-liter supercharger was salaciously strapped to the top. The Demon's 8-speed automatic transmission, driveshaft, differential, are all beefed up in this newest version as well.
Many may disappoint at the first mention of transmission details: there is currently no manual transmission available. One very important thing to note is that the automatic you DO get is one of the coolest ever constructed. It is a very specifically honed drag racing technology that engages first and second gears within the same instant, binding the transmission. This allows the racer to step on the gas to build up torque in the engine and drivetrain, without any application of the brakes. At the same time, a torque converter with a high stall speed lets you rev engine even higher than you normally could without moving an inch, as you await the telltale switch to the green light.
The project's goals for the new model involved trimming some weight during the transition from Challenger to Demon, and they successfully rid it of 232 pounds. Most already know that there is no passenger seat in the Demon, or a rear bench. You can add them in for just one measly dollar each, but the more you are gravitating towards the track, it may or may not happen! The suspension plays a very important role in the straight-line speed you can cook up immediately with the Demon. When you engage the Drag Mode, the rear shocks stiffen,and the front is softened up to help transfer the weight to the drag radials during your launch.
Because of all the extra work that was done while making sure this was one amazing drag machine, the end result is a car that can conquer the quarter-mile in 9.96 seconds, a feat that is going to be quite difficult for anyone else to rival. The writer documenting this journey claimed that “none prepared him for the violence the Demon took off with”, and went so far as to call that very prominent brand of electric cars “ludicrous” in comparison. The development team completed over 500 quarter-mile runs on a single axle, and more than 900 using the same transmission.
There are 3,300 of these amazingly mean models for the U.S. And Canada, and it's a pretty safe bet they may all be spoken for. Raw power, fiercely intense engineering capacity during development and a machine that is perfectly death-defying is truly a wonder of the modern world and a tribute to the pursuit of wild-eyed adventure!
The Roar Of Autumnal Equinox: Heaps of Goodness Herald The 2018 Harvest Edition
Friday, October 6, 2017
Deep in the breadbasket of America, there are many farmers who have toiled for multiple generations, avidly studying the weather and soil patterns, and making sure that the year's offerings are as of high a quality as possible. Many early mornings, endless trudges through a pasture, and tending to different kinds of livestock are just part of the norm. Agriculture is a $74 billion industry right here in Georgia, and one in 7 residents works in agriculture, forestry, or a related field.
All of the hard-working men and women that dedicate their days to America's food supply and forests will be excited to check out the Ram Harvest Edition: it's the industry's first agricultural market-specific truck, and is available in Case IH Red, as well as New Holland Blue. Everyone here at Landmark Dodge is thrilled to be able to stock a truck that is designed specifically for the needs of those who are in the business of making sure the food supply is ample and healthy. This special edition will be available across the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 lineups, and in all Mega Cab, Crew, and four-door Quad configurations.
The features you'll find inside are ones that are designed to handle very hard work. A ride-height increase of one inch and very aggressive on/off-road tires are designed to help owners have confidence while navigating farm roads on the rough side, and for them to stay more comfortable while doing so. Additions such as black tubular side steps, a durable spray-in bed liner, fold-out bumper step and mud flaps, skid plates, as well as 4 x 4 tow hooks are A1 features. A cargo-view camera aids with seeing in detail just what you are hauling, and the 4G WiFi paired with Android Auto gives buyers important farming forecasts from any location nationwide.
You'll have no problem cruising through the fields of laborious demand with 17-inch chrome wheels, and you can even add an inch on top of that when it comes to Heavy Duty models. With the purchase of every new Ram truck, Certified Ag Dealers have honed in to create a very farm-specific package, with a value of around $5,300. This includes a discount on Crop Copter Ag Drone products, a valuable voucher for AgroLiquid Crop Nutrition, and a subscription to the very informative Agribible's Grower Bundle. Combining premium appearance, technology, and capability, the Harvest Edition may be perfect for your growing family, or farm. Feel free to check out this and the many other varieties of trucks on the lot here at Landmark: we've got the goods to make your mountain of busy work disappear in a hurry!
Just ask any employee here at Landmark: we've known for years that the exclusive Ram brand takes heavy-duty hauling and towing seriously. With the beginning of model-year production for 2018, the Ram 3500 will offer an industry-ruling 930-lb. - ft of torque, and the ability to tow 30,000 pounds, with use of a fifth-wheel hitch. Demanding very hard-working and long-lasting capability are two attributes very important to truck buyers, and this is where you see long-term results.
Working side by side with Cummins, the improvements made to next year's model include higher boost limits through a variable geometry turbo and flow rate increases via the superb fuel delivery system. This system enables the 6.7-Liter Inline 6 to produce an additional 30 lb-ft of torque, tipping the scales in favor of the Ram for the ruler of its class. This fifth-wheel, 30,000 lb towing uprating is made possible by the hard work of Ram Engineering, via an in-house hitch design. Much unlike the numerous competitors out there, the Ram's new hitch will allow customers to separate themselves from Class 4 and 5 trucks to haul trailers that earlier would have been capped out at around 24,000 lbs of pull.
Right here in our beloved state in Union Point, we have what is widely-known as the nation's largest off-road resort. There are 6,000 acres of adventure trails here, and they are known for catering to drivers of all skill levels. Just off of Highway 76 near Blairsville, Beasley Knob offers drivers 10.6 miles of more experienced-level trails. Steep rock hill climbs and gravel roads are all surrounded by the wondrous Chattahoochee National Forest. All of these are destinations best reached with a sturdy conqueror that has mega tow power, and all of us here at Landmark Dodge attest that the Ram is the right pick.
Since they made the choice of launching as a stand-alone division 8 years ago, the Ram Truck brand has steadily emerged as an industry leader, with trucks that are known for being durable, and haplessly going the distance. This very distinct identity that has been cultivated has allowed the brand to concentrate on retaining core customers, and target the features that are most useful. Come see why Ram has the highest percentage of pickups still active on the road, over the last three decades to boot.
It's a machine that can claim the highest owner loyalty ever of any half-ton pickup, and highest snow plow rating as well. To properly prepare for the fall season, you can look at the truck with the most interior space in existence, and get ready to own a piece of properly constructed and hard-workin' prowess!
New Laramie Longhorn Southfork Edition + New Ram Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver Texas State Fair Sighting
Wednesday, October 4, 2017
This past week in Dallas, Ram unveiled updates that are new-for-2018 to its two most popular models. The Laramie Longhorn Southfork and Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver models will now have an even wider selection of available content, and appointments for the exterior. The Laramie Longhorn is the Texas Auto Writer's Association's pick for Luxury Pickup of Texas, and is boosting its very original southwestern styling to a new level, with the Longhorn Southfork edition. Building upon the Longhorn trim with a higher dose of luxury and refinement, truck fans in Atlanta and everywhere will love the way this new offering feels.
Once you peek inside, you'll find a new Canyon Brown and Light Frost Beige Natura Plus, as well as 100-percent full-grain leather seats. Drivers will fully appreciate the feel of leather wrapped around the A and B pillar grab handles, and the new trim on the steering wheel composed of real Walnut. Newly boosted appearance elements are scattered inside of the cabin, in ways that complement the unique walnut-colored real ash wood accents, as well as ruby red stitching. Within the center stack you'll see Ram's newest technology with Uconnect 4C 8.4-inch touchscreen, which includes navigation, 4G WiFi capability, and Google Android Auto.
The Ram Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver edition is available on Ram 2500/3500 4x2, and 4 x 4 Crew Cab, with a choice of 5.7 – liter HEMI V-8, or 6.4- liter HEMI V-8. There is also the option of a renowned 6.7-liter Cummins I-6 featuring the highest available torque level, at 930 lb-ft. Ram's new Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver edition comes with quite the premium upgrade assortment, including an extravagant luxury grille surrounded by chrome and chrome Wave Mesh inserts. There are also brand new bright belt moldings, side-view mirrors with chrome exterior, chrome wheel-to-wheel side steps, and 20-inch wheels with immaculate polish.
The Ram 1500 features a link-coil suspension for the best in ride and handling, and is also available with a very high-performing four-corner air suspension system. It supports five different ride heights: off-road, normal, aero, and entry/exit. Those who are getting ready for a particularly long or demanding haul will be happy about the available choice for an optional rear air suspension system, offering two driver-selectable ride heights, and load-leveling feature. The Ram 3500 is the only truck in the industry that has a supplemental rear air bag system, incorporating Hotchkiss leaf springs.
Production for both of these trucks has already begun at the Warren, MI Truck Assembly Plant, as well as the Saltillo, MX Assembly Location. A decade and a half ago during 2002, the Ram Truck was the first manufacturer to recognize the power of the pickup truck market in the Lone Star State, and to follow through with a model that defined the flavor of Texas. The Ram Lone Star edition is by far the brand's best-selling model in Texas, accounting for over 50% of all half-tons that leave the lot. Since the Lone Star's debut, Ram has sold more than 230,000 of the models catered specifically for residents of Texas.
The Ram Laramie Longhorn is absolutely loaded inside and out with design elements from wares that have been time-tested and traditionally handcrafted, with metal and leather work of the highest class imaginable. Very unique badging, premium head and tail lamps, as well as authentic Walnut Burl inserts stained in Canyon Brown or Cattle Tan set this truck aside from many of the other urban outfitted steel movers in its class. We know Atlanta is a very modern city full of tech startups and power lunches, but we urge you to check out just how awesome this pair of canyon-crawling trucks is: It is so very easy to become rapidly fond of the desperado vibe that Dodge has so well perfected!

The 2018 Jeep Compass is one very exciting addition to next year's auto lineup: over-the-top 4x4 off-road capability, advanced and more fuel-efficient powertrains, premium and authentic Jeep design, as well as first-class on-road driving dynamics are all present. When customers arrive at the lot here at Landmark and ask us what is new for 2018 as far as the Jeep brand, it's our pleasure to tell them all of the attributes we love! The open road and dusty trails are the best places to take this compact crossover SUV, which made its debut during 2007.
In 2011, Jeep redesigned the Compass to allow it to more closely resemble the Grand Cherokee, while still keeping important aesthetics of its own identity. There was a better suspension added that greatly impacted handling, a revamped interior with more standard equipment, and more option packages including a Freedom Drive II Off-Road: this included a continuously variable transmission, all-terrain tires inside 17-inch aluminum wheels, and a full inch of increased ground clearance.
For the coming year, the Jeep Compass Limited models now offer 4 x 2 driveline configuration, and a premium new design with a very wide stance and standout glass-to-wheel proportions. The seven-slot grille that is pleasantly characteristic of the brand now sports a fresh approach, featuring a Gloss Black field with chrome outlines around each individual slot. Specifically designed for adventures with extreme Trail Rated thrill, the small-wide 4 x 4 architecture features 4-wheel suspension with up to 8.2 inches of wheel articulation, and ground clearance of 8.5 inches.
All North American models will be powered by the well-proven and fuel-efficient 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark engine, which cranks out 180 horsepower, and 175 lb.- ft of torque. As far as entertainment options, you will have a choice of 5.0 , 7.0, and 8.4- inch touchscreen sizes, and the fourth-generation Uconnect systems that provide a range of hands-free communication, entertainment, and features to help navigate. When the warmer months make their way to the Atlanta metro, you'll love the open-air dual-pane sunroof, which will allow you to catch extra rays during various stages of your commute.
Come ask us about the Selec-Terrain feature in the new Compass: it provides up to five modes for the best 4-wheel-drive performance in any type of weather condition. You can pick auto, snow, sand, and mud modes to assure that you have the best traction and handling possible. If you opt for the Trailhawk model, you gain Rock Mode: an intense and hyper-equipped crawling capability that will boost the fun and excitement level drastically on your next off-road destination. This powerful and well-equipped new ride comes in 11 different exterior colors, and is built on more than 75 years of legendary heritage: come see which adventure-filled longitude or latitude the brand new Compass will steer you towards today!

When an auto gleans an award for seven years straight, it is a very evident and powerful inkling that they are doing something right. This year, the Jeep Grand Cherokee won AutoPacific's Ideal Vehicle Award once again for the Mid-Size SUV segment, based on 65,000 responses from a national survey. AutoPacific's Ideal Vehicle Awards measure the changes that owners would like to see in their newly-purchased vehicles. Surveyed after 3 months of ownership, respondents were asked about what type of changes they would like made in development. The Chrysler Pacifica also kept major headway against the competition, coming in strong as the most awarded minivan of this year and 2016 as well.
Current owners of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler Pacifica indicated as a whole that they are driving a vehicle that either met or exceeded their expectations. As the original manufacturer of the minivan 3 decades ago, FCA US truly heralded the category with firsts: they had 78 true innovations through the first five minivan generations. They also have the claim to the industry's first minivan available as a plug-in hybrid, and strive to closely meet the expectations of every single buyer. This feat really shows that Chrysler designers, planners, and engineers understand minivans best, and the 2017 model brought a new level of functionality, versatility, new technology, and sensational styling to the genre.
Completely re-engineered from the ground up using an all-new platform, the Pacifica marks delivery of class-leading gasoline and hybrid powertrains to the car category. With more than 100 available safety and security features, a large offering of technologies needed for comfort, and Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system, it has really etched its namesake solidly as a true pioneer in its class.
We heartily recognize that the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee possesses very legendary capability, craftsmanship that is world-class, and safety features that any with very loved ones in tow would deem satisfactory. Four different 4x4 systems, the high-performing Selec-Terrain traction management system, and Quadra-Lift air suspension system are a few other great features, as well as a highly-impressive crawl ration of 44.1:1.
AutoPacific is a provider of marketing research and product-consulting firm that publishes yearly syndicated studies on the automotive industry. Founded in 1986, they have long been known for their very extensive proprietary research, and forecasting what will happen next in the areas of supply and distribution. They have a state-of-the-art automotive research facility in California, and an affiliate office in the Michigan Motor City. When various customers come in to Landmark and ask us which vehicles would be best for their needs, we love steering them towards ones that have held such high accolade: come check out just how useful and innovative these two are!

At Landmark Dodge, it is hard to contain the jitters and excitement that we go through every time we think about a new Jeep release. We always think about blazing through creeks at high speed, making sure all of the lures and spinners are in our tackle boxes and many other great sensations that go hand-in-hand with the open and untamed road. Injected with an unmatched 707 horsepower and paired with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the brand new 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is slated to arrive in showrooms during the fourth quarter of this year!
It has also gleaned the most awards of any SUV in history and delivers performance numbers that are simply astounding. Combining world-class on-road driving dynamics with a stellar sense of luxury and refinement, there are literally elements of advanced technology everywhere you look within the souped-up and trail-ready ride. The 707-horsepower engine puts to use an 8-speed automatic transmission, and also takes advantage of brand new Brembo brakes and world-class driving dynamics to deliver the highest level of performance imaginable.
The 0-60 pace time is completed in just 3.5 seconds, and the quarter-mile jaunt comes in at 11.6 seconds, and 116 mph. From Colorado to the canyons of Arizona and freeways right here in Atlanta, drivers will immediately fall in love with the Quadra-Trac on-demand four-wheel drive system: it includes an electronic limited-slip rear differential and single-speed active transfer case.
Whether you are navigating from an urban parking lot or dirt-covered trail, the Launch Control is going to immediately prove itself as your new best friend. It goes to work heftily, to optimize the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk's performance by coordinating the transmission, engine, driveline, and suspension for a by-the-book launch that also offers very straight-line category acceleration. The Selec-Track system inside uses performance-tuned software to pre-configure and distinguish the five useful modes the new Trackhawk has, enabling you to choose the best setting for your next journey. With 7,200 pounds of towing capacity, you won't be too concerned with whatever load ails you: the busy job site next on your agenda or steep grades in and around Stone Mountain Park will be conquered with ease.
Brakes are such a very important component of a ride, and Jeep made sure that they spared no details regarding the new Cherokee Trackhawk. The new high-performance Brembo braking system includes the largest standard front brakes ever offered on a Jeep vehicle, and deliver an astonishing 60-0 mph braking performance of 114 feet. You'll notice right away that the Trackhawk rides one inch lower than non-SRT models, and we fell in love right away with the newly sculpted hood, which has dual heat extractors. The new standard 20 x 10-inch Titanium-finish wheels provide a very characteristic and edgy appearance, and Pirelli 295/45ZR20 Scorpion Verde all-season and P Zero three-season tires deliver an increased speed rating.
The Uconnect 4 system provides the passengers an 8.4-inch display that features Track hawk-exclusive Performance Pages: here you can keep track of a large selection of performance timers, and various gauge readouts. Ask us how you can beef up your new Cherokee with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, tires equipped for three seasons, a fully wrapped Signature Leather Interior Package, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon high-performance audio system, dual-screen rear-seat entertainment center with Blu-ray, and a powerful trailer tow package. Constructed on more than 75 years of legendary production and heritage, Jeep is THE authentic SUV on the market, and continues to deliver the most aggressive and enthusiastic invitation to customers to live their driving and recreation lives to the fullest potential possible!

Earlier this month, the 3-row SUV we love so much was recognized highly for its advanced technology, and ease-of-use, as the editors
of WardsAuto have named the new 2018 Dodge Durango SRT to their current 10 best. High on the function factor, as well as luxurious on the inside and out, the 2018 Durango SRT is loaded with many numerous technology advancements, features that make it very easy-to-use, and services designed to keep drivers' hands on the wheel. We have been consistently amazed by the ways in which the stellar features on the Durango have also been able to keep customers informed and engaged.
The Durango now comes with a Uconnect 4th-generation system that includes performance improvements allowing for quicker startup time, and processing power that has been greatly enhanced. Available with the class-exclusive 8.4-inch touchscreen, the Durango's entertainment options allow for multi-touch gestures, imagery that is wildly vivid, cutting-edge sharp graphics, SRT Performance Pages, and the ability to support the integration of AppleCar Play, as well as Android Auto. The newly designed 7-inch, thin-film transistor on board has a customizable digital instrument gauge cluster, with the addition of a 180-mph speedometer and a multitude of layouts as well as information.
Tom Murphy, the Senior Editor of WardsAuto, cites the Durango SRT as stellar in his book because “it presents a dazzling array of graphical elements”, including a smoky SRT animation during shutdown and startup, an incredibly modern 3-D navigation map, and an appealing and very functional TFT arrangement for the gauges. An SRT button at the base of the center stack triggers an elaborate series of Performance Pages, that will help drivers tap into top performance abilities for the vehicle. The driver can set the transmission, stability control, suspension, steering, and all-wheel-drive systems to their individual preference and liking.
Adaptive cruise control, real-time news, traffic and weather links, and other front-running driver-assistance technologies are also featured on the vehicle that makes it an excellent choice for the daily drive. To fulfill the job of selecting the best, WardsAuto editors evaluate the user experience of 23 different vehicles and rate them on qualities such as user-friendliness, infotainment features, sound system traits, connectivity of the vehicle, driver assistance, information displays, and compatibility of materials. When you come pay us a fall visit at Landmark Dodge, you can check out how the Durango SRT delivers a 4.4-second 0-60 time, as well as an 8700 pound towing capability.
We'll also gladly show you how the more than 60 available safety and security features will improve vehicle handling and performance both on and off the road. If you are trying to finish a busy contract job or taking the jet skis out for one last thrilling jaunt, you can see how the trailer-sway control enhances towing capabilities and keeps the tough and tireless SRT aligned as it travels to your final destination. For more than 100 years, the Dodge brand has carried on the legacy of brothers John and Horace, and our showroom has a dazzling array of the best available options in auto production!

Atlanta has many landmarks that make it a truly one-of-a-kind city, and this is a time of year when the metro area is really jumping at its best. If you feel that summer is beginning to truly slip away, there are more than a small handful of great things to see and do before the sun-laden season comes to an end. Blind Willies' is one place that you'll love to frequent with your friends after work. Named after blues legend Blind Willie McTell, it is a bit reminiscent of a New Orleans style joint, and will be an excellent staple for you to create many smooth and starry after-dark memories. What's even better news is that right here at Landmark, there are fantastic and souped-up models such as the Challenger to get you to your favorite Atlanta celebration spot in style.
The J.D. Power APEAL study is now in its 22nd year, and was developed to provide an accurate measurement of how gratifying customers feel a new vehicle is to own and drive. 77 vehicle qualities of brand-new models are scrutinized closely, and customers are surveyed just after the 3rd month of ownership. The vehicles that far the best are the ones that will have the greatest amount of owner loyalty in the long run, and have the ability to command the highest price.
The Dodge Challenger was ranked the highest in the Midsize Sporty Car Segment of the study, and it was the fifth time in just seven years that it was #1. When people step onto the lot, they immediately are blown away by what is the most powerful muscle car in existence, equipped with a Pentastar V-6 engine, and TorqueFlite 8-speed transmission. Good for an estimated 30 MPG on the highway, the Bully-on-the-block Challenger delivers 305 horsepower, and comes with your choice of 8-speed or six-speed manual transmission. The 392 Hemi option delivers an astonishing 485 horsepower, the most available for any U.S. -built car costing less than $40,000.
One of the coolest features on the Challenger is for changing weather conditions: if the temperature dips into the frigid zone, the propshaft is engaged by the clutch, which sends up to 38 percent of the available torque to the front axle. Car and Driver Magazine attests to the fact that “if one desires, well-controlled slides can be performed”, and boasted that the GT offers a degree of four-season performance capability that you can't get from Ford and Chevy competitors. Making it through the quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds, this is one seriously fun and
fast car, and drivers all over the nation are falling in love with just how fast you can begin to completely dominate the street in one of these proven and husky powerhouses.
We recognize that there may be some out there who claim that this does not have the ability to be a muscle car without a true V-8, and that it does not just have the same roar. But think practically about this for a minute: it's the perfect “gateway drug” for someone who may have once felt compelled to stay limited to a sedan, and it can let you experience the fury of a dragster at a bit of an entry-point.
Come talk to us soon to check out the new active exhaust system, wider wheels, high-performance tires, and cold-air induction components. If you opt for a Hellcat, you're wandering pleasantly and hungrily into V-8 territory, and riding in the SRT 392 provides your ride with adaptive damping suspension. Everyone we talk to is definitely into the notion of keeping the summer around just as long as we can, and cooking up the fresh asphalt with a brand new Challenger is going to raise your heart rate more-than-healthily.

Every morning when we begin our day at the dealership and look out at the lot in beautiful Atlanta, we are reminded of just how much we love cars. There's so much to love: sedans, mini vans, hefty trucks, and new and economical crossover SUV's. For each buyer out there, we can recommend the perfect type of vehicle for your commute, or the ultimate machine to use on the weekends during your precious playtime.
Over the past month, we had another reason for mounting excitement as we began our workdays: the results of the Strategic Vision's 23rd Annual TQI Report. A comprehensive survey of more than 42,000 new vehicle buyers who purchased vehicles from July through December of last year. Tapping directly into the actual emotions of the buyer and any maintenance problems they may incur, it's fair to say that it is a valuable form of consumer data measurement. Vehicles are scored based on reliability, actual problems, excitement level before driving, and other collective measures that occur with the sum of all these traits.
The Chrysler Pacifica brought home first place in “Total quality among minivans”, and the Dodge Charger snagged up the win for “Total quality in Full-Size Car Segment”. This was notably the Charger's third win in just four years, and we have to admit that many are obsessed with “The world's only 4-door muscle car”. The Dodge Durango leads the Mid-Size SUV Segment in total quality, and has also had four awards claims in the last five years alone. The Jeep Wrangler was named the best-in-class Entry SUV, as Strategic Vision realized just how versatile and technically-loaded that this class of crossovers has become.
The Chrysler Pacifica was hailed for reinventing the minivan segment from head to toe, and possessing the outspoken styling that customers were looking for from the get go. The Pacifica delivers head-of-the-class leading gasoline and hybrid powertrains to their perfectly introductory levels in the minivan genre. The most awarded minivan of the year, it has staked quite a lofty claim within the auto realm as of late.
The Dodge Charger has rear-wheel-drive architecture that enables the latest technology to propel this lightening-fast raptor of a ride, and builds amazingly on Dodge's promise to crank out the best in American-performance models. The Charger Daytona series delivers more performance, with inspirational styling that are driven by heritage. Having a 392-liter Hemi doesn't hurt, and you'll feel as if you are truly making high-powered memories every time you turn on the ignition.

It is now one of the most favored seasons to drive in Atlanta: that pavement might get scorching hot, but later sunsets, blue skies, and outdoor summer activities are the nam of the summer driving game. We love to stand behind a brand of auto that is consistently ranking high for performance, safety, and all-around customer appeal. This past year, every single one of the Chrysler brands posted year-over-year initial quality score improvements in the J.D. Power 2017 Initial Study. This is based on responses from nearly 80,000 who purchased or leased these supremely-ranked vehicles, and were surveyed after just three months of ownership.
The customers surveyed are asked about any issues they have with the design of the vehicle, as well as anything they feel are defects. It's no surprise that the Ram Truk is the industry's most improved truck brand, with more than a 24 percent improvement from last year. Known globally for being the longest-lasting, the Ram 1500 dishes up the features that many truck owners want. Best-in-class fuel efficiency at 29 miles per galon, the Ram also sports a very elusive and powerful EcoDiesel V-6 engine. Handling style that is a class leader, as well as the unique link-coil rear suspension are a few of the characteristics that help with the Ram's immense popularity and customer satisfaction level.
The Chrysler Pacifica was the highest-ranking minivan in quality study for its first year, and greatly wowed those who surveyed about it. Basicallly re-inventing the minivan with a thunder and lightening revolutionary approach, it offers an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology and very bold styling. There are more than 100 available safety and security features for this vehicle, and a large array of technologies that provide comfort and convenience. No compromises were made in its construction, and it is one of the most amazing and feature filled family vehicles in existence today.
The Dodge Challegner ranked second in initial quality for respective segments in the survey, as those hungry for speed fall in love over and over again with the most pwerful muscle car ever. It has a snarkling yet efficient Penstar V-6 engine, and TorqueFlite 8-speed transmission. It offers up 305 horsepower, and gets an amazing 30 miles per gallon on the highway. It has the ability to deliver up to 375 horsepower when given the 5.7-liter HEMI option, paired with either the 8-speed or 6-speed manual transmission. Available features include a new active exhaust system, ultra-wide wheels, performance tires, and cold-air inductino components, all adding to what is an ultra powerful appealing product laced with high-octane performance.
You can check out how awesome all of these vehicles are and ask us about which we think would be right for you. If you are a busy commuter, someone who is an active athlete or contractor with the need for a lot of muscle and pull, we've got the solution to whatever challenges you are facing. There is a new, used, and commercial inventory here that will fuel your desire to get linked up with your dream car, and we will take unprecedented pride in guiding you through the process!
This July, everyone here at the Landmark dealership as well as many avid worldwide fans heralded the most recent nod to the Jeep Wrangler: it has officially earned the top spot on Cars.com's "American-Made Index," which hails its personal favorites every year. The Jeep Cherokee ranked second among all vehicles, and executive editor Joe Wisenfelder had a few stand-out reasons of his own for the selection.
Touting the ways in which the Jeep brand helped the allies win World War II, he cited the strong American credentials associated with the namesake. As we just celebrated the most patriotic holiday of all, our favorite picks in the Jeep world are trusty transportation companions to have by our sides. As family events take over our schedules, and fireworks took over the night skies, a sense of patriotic pride always is noticeable during this special time.
Vehicles were evaluated on five key criteria to take the cake for this All-American claim: assembly location, content of domestic parts, the country of the engine's origin, and U.S. Factory employment. The Wrangler's domestic parts content was deemed at the top of the charts for the highest figures observed in this year's index ratio: the 2-door scored at 74 percent, and the 4-door at 75 percent.
Assembly takes place in Toledo, Ohio, a popular family destination with one of the top minor-league baseball stadiums in the nation. From Atlanta, day trips such as Barnsley Gardens Resort and Lake Lanier are perfect jaunts to check out from behind the wheel of a Jeep during the summer.
The current Wrangler model features an 8-speaker audio system, and an optional 9-speaker Premium Alpine Audio Packag
e: this includes a boomin' subwoofer, as well as a 552-watt amplifier to properly add punch to the system. It's four-wheel drive capacities are legendary, and it is produced with more than 7 decades of 4x4 engineering expertise. The popular body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, electronic lockers, and live axles have been winning drivers over for years, and the Jeep line is absolutely a top-rated choice to take on any open road journey of discovery in the U.S.
We are so proud every day to represent such an authentic brand: new and existing customers are constantly invited to complete extraordinary journeys, and pack their favorite gear (or favorite passengers!) along with them to be included. From blood red sunsets to early mornings in raging creeks, driving a Jeep off into the Wilderness is a sensation many always wanted to replicate after doing it just once.
Jeeps are a practical and punchy around-town ride as well: we have closely been paying attention to what consumers are looking for to triumph their daily commute. Being billed as entirely All-American was no surprise to all of us here on the lot at Landmark: we are as proud to provide sales and service for such a brand as any flag-waving veteran, or anyone from vast and faraway places now making a move to call America home.
The Ram Truck brand has long been a popular namesake, and the luxury factor has just been taken to the next level. An amazing and brand new 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition offers up an enchanced interior and exterior trim, which perfectly complements Ram's domination in truck design and luxury features. The Limited Tungsten Edition is the highest trim level Ram has made available, and an example of how Ram directly responds to customer input by offering the absolute most luxurious pickup in the industry. Any premium truck buyer is going to immediately recognize the attention to detail, and enjoy the immense quality of the materials inside.
Building on the very popular limited trim with the ante being upped in the sophistication department, one addition you're gonna love is the truck segment-first Light Greystone suede headliner, as well as the ultra-premium "Natura Plus" Frost. Indigo-colored premium leather is also present throughout the cabin, including the instrument panel, seats, steering wheel, center arm rest, and doors. Tungsten models also feature Indigo-colored carpet, with rubber floormats and snap-out Frost and Indigo carpet inserts. Components that are made with real wood, and unique badges are the well-rounded finishing touches of the first-tier rim.
The Halo trim is a Tungsten Chrome grille sporting extra large RAM lettering, and bears close resemblance to the limited. You'll be excited to check out the sport hood that comes with the Tungsten Edition, as well as body-color matched bumpers, mirrors, door handles, and running boards. Ram Tungsten is also equipped with the luxurious features of air suspension, navigational radio, remote start, backup camera, power adjustable pedals with memory, a heated steering wheel, front ventilated seats, heated rear seats, and RamBox. In-vehicle entertainment options abound with the standard 8.4" Uconnect radio, which allows you the access for Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Sirius XM Guardian.
Hitting the lots during the third quarter of the year, the Ram Limited Tungsten trim will be available on the Ram 1500, 2500 as well as the 3500 single-and dual rear-wheel. You'll also be able to snag it up on the Crew Cab and Heavy Duty Mega Cab, 4WD, two-wheel drive, and both long and short wheelbase models. Buyers with more affluent tastes know that the newest generation of luxury pickup trucks like the Ram Limited Tungsten offer up many of the features that are found in premium-priced cars and SUVs, but also provide a loyal means hard-working potential that no sedan can come close to.
Known as a very rare metal and one of the most resiliant elements found in nature, Tungsten is a fitting word to describe the highest level of trim now available on the Ram. Since the launch of the RAM Truck brand as a stand-alone division 8 years ago, it has grown amazingly into an industry leader, and provider of the massively long-lasting and durable line of pickups. It won't take long for you to pinpoint all of the reasons that this truck has the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton pickup, and experience for yourself just how exciting it is to use the Best-In-Class on a daily basis.
Navigating Atlanta’s busy way of life with a family in tow requires a vehicle that is trusty, reliable, and up to the job on a daily basis. Looking for a family car or minivan that is perfect means that it has to surpass even a Grade-A rating from the general consumer population, and this is absolutely what the new Pacifica has done. For the 10th year in a row, the best experts in the business from Parents Magazine as well as Edmunds thoroughly examined hundreds of vehicles, eager to whittle down the best in a top ten list. Why is the Pacifica on the list? It has dramatically reinvented the minivan genre, with an unmatched level of functionality, technology features, and modern styling.

With single and dual-screen options as well as wireless headphones, the options are limitless to use while you landmark the miles slipping away behind you.
Everyone here on the lot and in the service bays knows that this vehicle really took a magnificent leap forward with its very exclusive and innovative hybrid powertrain. The Pacifica is the first electrified minivan in existence, and yields a startling 84 miles per gallon in electric-only mode, and bragging rights to 22 miles of all-electric range. The developments and fantastic level of achievement that the Pacifica heralds took a great amount of time and effort, and we are thrilled that the vehicle is ranking so high with experts such as Parents Magazine and Edmunds, Inc.

As things heat up in the streets and on race tracks nationwide, there has been one dazzling and dangerous addition to the auto world that will continue to excite and tempt anyone with a true penchant for speed. The Dodge Challenger Demon is a supercharged, 6.2-liter with a HEMI V-8 and Powertrain, and it is constructed with aluminum alloy heads, as well as a revolutionary hemispherical combustion chamber. For output, you are looking at 840 bhp (626 KW) @ 6,300 RPM, 770 lb.-ft. @4,500 RPM, with Direct Connection Controller and unleaded 100 octane minimum fuel.
The cylinder heads on the demon are machined on dedicated Demon/Hellcat CNC creation stations, and the engine block is expertly deck plate honed to minimize bore distortion. Every single Demon and Hellcat engine is dyno tested for 42 minutes under a massive load up to 5,200 rpm, before being shipped for further assembly in Brampton, Ontario. There is a very high flow, low restriction inlet system, designed to deliver cool air into the supercharger on the Demon, and a very large 45.2 “ functional hood scoop opening as well as triple-inlet air box.
Speaking of keeping the Demon cool, the SRT Power Chiller redirects air conditioning refrigerant from cabin to chiller unit, and reduces charge air temperature by a whopping 18 degrees Fahrenheit. Here are some stats on the engine itself, which is the driving force behind the raw power and muscle behind the Demon’s ability to pick up quick off the line:
·Forged alloy steel crankshaft with revised balancing and 90.9 MM stroke
·Induction-hardened crank bearing surfaces
·Forged high-strength alloy pistons; 30-micron increased piston to bore clearance
·Connecting rods are powder forged, with revised ultra-high tensile fasteners
·Flow doubled on piston cooling oil jets
·Revised design valve springs
·33 percent increase in oiling for rocker tips as well as valve springs – cooling and lubrication
·Stability is improved with single-groove collets on valve stems
·Pressure of fuel injector is increased by 27 percent
·Oil pan and windage tray are optimized for high acceleration, and tested astutely up to 1.8 G
We're not going to deny that many people love to race in Atlanta, whether on or off the track, and the Demon V-8 has many amazing facts that make it so great. During a quarter-mile run, the Demon V-8 ingests 173 cubic feet of air. Just to give you an idea of how much that is, it's the lung capacity of 816 humans! 800 feet into a quarter-mile strut, the Demon would literally empty all of the air in the cabin of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – taking up 105 cubic feet. The cooling system in this very alluring beast hastily rejects 258 KW of heat at rated power, that would boil 1 quart of water at room temperature in 1.2 seconds. The heat rejected is equal to what 250 electric toasters would emit.
During each power stroke, piston and connecting rod are loaded with 11 sheer tons of force, which is equivalent to 5 2018 Demons themselves. The driveline sees 11,164 lb-ft of ring gear torque during launch, and this results in a total 1.8 g launch. More than 1 ton is transferred from front to rear wheels during launch, and this is one mean streak of a dragster from America's most recognizable and able performance brand. It is a very limited-edition machine, but we want you to come check it out on our floor, and see just how exciting it is. The heavier the dose of lead in your foot the better: this is an improvement on the Challenger's best assets that has been a long time coming.
There is now another great reason to enthusiastically own the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: The Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA) honored the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid with overall Best Family Car, and Best Technology Car. GAAMA Members evaluated various manufacturers’ vehicles, covering various categories for car buyers with families to keep in mind. Vehicles were scored after enjoying incredible vistas while driving scenic routes at the Lake Lanier Islands Resort, and Conference Center in Buford, GA.
The Chrysler Pacifica was named the Best 3-Row Family car, and the 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 won accolades as the Best Family Pickup Truck, the 2nd year in a row it has received this honor. Minivan functionality has never been better, and the Chrysler Pacifica offers incredibly bold styling, the best in technology, and functionality that you’ll enjoy even if you’re flying solo with a family in tow. The new model has been completely re-engineered, and has an incredibly modern method of delivering gasoline and hybrid powertrains to the minivan genre. More than 100 available safety and security features will put your mind at ease in a major way during your next drive, and you’ll have high-tech eyes on the road preventing any mishaps.
One thing we know that you’ll love about the Pacifica hybrid is that it truly takes the vehicle’s prowess a step further, with its innovative and advanced hybrid powertrain. It is the first vehicle in the minivan category that is electrified, and you can lay down a startling 84 MPG equivalent while in electric-only mode, and 33 miles with the use of all-electric range. From the Botanical Gardens to a fun night out catching the Braves, we are always going to be very proud of what a great time you can have in our city of Atlanta. Having a minivan that you can have complete confidence in when it comes to the long haul is key, and you don't want to spend summer with a vehicle that does not provide ample space or safety features.
Some of the things everyone here on our staff love about this car are the nicely-sculpted body, very cool LED lighting, and available 20-inch aluminum wheels, offering enhanced style and maneuverability. From luxurious Nappa leather trim to seating capability for 8 passengers, its ability to get you around in comfort will ease the commute so much, you'll hardly realize you're driving. It's no surprise that the Pacifica has the highest rating for safety in its class: attributes like the modern Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking provide you audible and visual warnings, as well as even applying the brakes if needed.
The available ParkSense Rear Park Assist system with stop is ingeniously created with sensors in the front and rear, that provide extra help with cues preventing you from backing right into an obstacle. Class Exclusive Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist System team up to do the job of controlling the steering for you, while you follow on-screen direction for the positioning of gears, brakes, and the all-important rate of acceleration. When you come to pay us a visit at Landmark Dodge, make sure that you ask us about Adaptive Cruise Control: it uses sensors to maintain the safest distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, and is another reason why this minivan rocks in its many aspects of poised protection.
Dodge really wanted to go to town and fight the good fight for savvy auto consumers with their 3-row Charger SUV. In conjunction with the unveiling of the bully-on-the-block Challenger SRT Demon two months ago, the iconic brand used the Chicago Auto Show to introduce a souped-up and appealing SRT breed of their full-sized Durango. Right here in Atlanta, we are taking some time to revel in the goods that w ere unveiled in the Windy City during April, and taking notice of what is likely the most powerful and fastest 3-row vehicle in the current running. With 392-cubic inch Hemi V-8 power under the hood, you get to dip into a stored source of 475 horsepower.
Delivered up at 6,000 RPM and 470 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 RPM, this is a fantastic option for a family vehicle that goes from 0 to 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds. Conquering the quarter-mile feat goes down in right at 13 seconds, courtesy of tenacious testers from the National Hot Rod Association certification. All indicators can quickly can lead you to the conclusion that this leaves competitors like the Chevy Tahoe far, far behind, in the land slightly less desirable for speed hounds.
This able and ready vehicle will go on sale in the Atlanta metro this fall, and sports a very aggressive, bold look which shows its very close relationship as well as likeness to the Charger and Challenger. A lucky handful of very proud dragsters in Atlanta will no doubt find their way around to the abundant personal joys of owning the Demon, which is so strip-ready that it doesn’t even come (in most cases) with a passenger seat. The idea to make it recognizable on the spot as a typical modern Dodge comes into play immediately when you see the telltale lights, characteristic grille-opening, and the new heat extractors skillfully added within the SRT hood.
We can bet that whether you are cruising anywhere in the metro from Ashford Creek Way to Washington Heights Terrace, you’re gonna distinctly love the new exhaust system. It’s tuned meticulously to sound like a Charger SRT, primed and personalized with a 2.75-inch dual exhaust. The speedometer goes to 180 MPH, and many family SUV owners are thrilled by this striking sign of ability to maintain more than a healthy cruising pace.
The head of design himself is claiming that this new SRT is in all ways a successful attempt at creating a three-row Charger, and is proud of the realistic shifter within instead of a “silly knob”. An active dampening system improves the quality of the ride, and the current suspension has added stiffness of 3 percent in the front springs, as well as 16 percent in the rear. Come by and visit us at Landmark to see how you can claim ownership to this 5,510 –lb vehicle that will do the rugged duty of towing 8,000 lbs! Lugging a boat up a hill will be a cinch with this powerful V-8, and the new Durango will be the medium that will have you “making the lake” with sheer ease.
Just last week, the "Flying Pics" video made its debut across digital media channels, providing an excellent means to showcase the Chrysler brand's dashing and brand new 2017 Pacifica Hybrid. Scores of drivers had been waiting quite some time for this release, that allows the family-and-friend toting individual to do so in style, while saving energy at the same time. This powerful delivery in the auto world offers a very easy and efficient driving experience, providing 33 miles of all-electric range, while a grand total of 566 miles range all together. It proudly flaunts an 84 mile-per-gallon equivalent, which is achieved in electric-only mode.
The previous video shows us a family that is trying out the Pacifica for the very first time, with a host of sorts showing them the illustrious ropes. Many memes and stories have commented on just how fantastically strange it would be if pigs could fly, and this is the event that the family checking out the minivan gets to witness. The newer video is inspired by a fairy tale, and thrillingly provides a few scary elements that are a bit like the "Sleepy Hollow" movie of days past. The emergency braking system is really what is highlighted here during the video, portraying the security you can rely on with this new minivan model. If you happen to be going on a very long jaunt, you don't have to worry about cargo: the space remains fairly un-compromised, with the 16-kwh battery pack stored in the second-row floor.
One of the most exciting things about this vehicle is regarding the federal tax credit: the buyer qualifies for a full $7,500 federal tax credit, and may qualify for additional state and local incentives to boot. This useful and revolutionary vehicle has been engineered from the ground up and provided an all-new platform for class-reading ride, handling, and reduction of annoying vibration and harshness. When you read about Global Warming, it becomes evident that it is a dangerous condition that everyone would like to combine their efforts to curtail in any amount. Since 1880, average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees, and this is enough to worry any of the Earth's inquisitive inhabitants.
This all-new Pacifica is not only loaded with features, it also delivers a 31-percent reduction in Global Warming Potential, which is compared with minivans from previous generations. You can view the "Flying Pigs" video on the Chrysler Brand's official Youtube page, in addition to channels on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. With the Pacifica, you also enjoy access to a smartphone app that delivers relevant vehicle information like the status of a change and your schedule, and you are also able to pay attention to an efficiency coach that guides you with driving step-by-step. This is going to be an event in the auto industry that kids as well as adults will be thrilled to see, and this short commercial is a great way of showcasing the Pacifica and the ways in which it can help you and those you're toting around keep it easy on the wear and tear of the planet.
The sleek and characteristically low-slung appearance of the Pacifica
was what really won the judges over, as well as the fact that there was an addition of a hybrid model within the product line. Spacious and quiet were two attributes that passengers and drivers really wanted to experience when driving a new minivan, and the fact that it once used to be an SUV is a high-selling point for those that love a vehicle capable of conquering the wild. The illustrious style and multiple tech features are what really puts the Pacifica in a high class among minivans on the market: this is an offering that the driver can use the latest gadgets for to their advantage. Also becoming a finalist for North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, it goes well beyond what most other minivans on the market offer: you'll love the built-in vacuum and awesome gas mileage.
As prices are slated to inch up a bit over the coming year, this is one vehicle that you will feel confident purchasing as you keep your eye on the pump. One thing that really ups the ante as a cool feature is second-row seats that fold into the floor, and can also be moved to access the third row if a child's seat is added to your traveling mix. The plug-in hybrid model allows for 33-mile driving range, and the peace of mind that you are doing your part for a healthy and flourishing environment. This classy minivan comes equipped with a 287-horsepower V6 engine, and a driver's seat with awesome power to allow for the ultimate in adjustment.
The Uconnect infotainment system, 5-inch touch screen, voice command recognition, USB port, and six-speaker stereo are going to make the time you spend in the vehicle just that much better, and any long miles you tackle will be a pleasure with these amenities at your fingertips. Uconnect Access gives the driver the ability to unlock and start your car with your smartphone, a great feature for the times when you are in a big hurry. The standard equipment included with this awesome Chrysler release as well as the high ranking in Popular Mechanics give us reason to be excited about having them in stock on the lot. Come check out the coolest way to transport you and your family around Atlanta this year, and see why the Chrysler Pacifica is proper all-around in the most important categories.
As the summer bears down upon Atlanta, the sales and support staff here at Landmark Dodge can't think of anything more exciting than giving getting your hands on the wheel of the fastest quarter-mile car in the world. When Dodge was laying the foundation and envisioning what they wanted for this awesome creation, they wanted to create the most powerful muscle car in existence.
Remember during elementary school when you felt forced to hold tightly onto your lunch money if the bully came around? The Demon pretty solidly claims its space on the block with prowess. When what you've achieved is a finished product that is officially banned by the NHRA and the fastest 0-60 production car in existence, there is more than good reason to get excited. This dangerously fast devil is even certified by the Guinness World Records as the first ever front-wheel lift in production car, and the absolute highest horsepower V-8 production car engine ever made.
The demon is predominantly a high-achieving collection of firsts: among them is being the first-ever factory production car that is designed to run on 100+ high-octane unleaded fuel. Landmark SRT Power Chiller technology is another landmark event: the first-ever liquid-to-air intercooler chiller system in a factory production car. The After-Run Chiller is what keeps the supercharger and the charge air cooler at an optimum temp after the engine is shut off, and the TransBrake system is the first of its kind in use. Three years ago, Dodge made a permanent impression on the high-performance car world with the release of the 707-horsepower Charger SRT Hellcat: they achieved the release of true supercar stats at down-to-Earth prices.
The upgrades from this to the current Demon are significant: there is now a larger 2.7-liter per rev supercharger, with increased boost pressure to 14.5 PSI. The RPM limits are significantly higher, sitting at 6,500. It is amazing to many that what you have here is a factory-production drag race car with Torque Reserve, and is snarling and mean enough that it comes with the front passenger seat delete option. All of the savvy customers who purchase this bundle of roaring fury receive one full-day session at the Bob Bondurant School of High-performance Driving, which shouldn't surprise anyone who is purchasing the fastest 1/4 mile car on the planet.
The Demon also has another pretty fantastic feat under its belt: this is the world's first production car ever that lifts the front wheels at launch, and just to claim its fame stoutly, set the world record for longest wheelie from a standing start at 2.92 feet. For a production car, the Demon gets the bragging rights of the highest G-forces ever recorded at launch: 1.8 G. To successfully release this beast that many feel is a sheer miracle to behold, there was intense cooperation among designers and many current drag racers to boot. Just to give you an idea how ready for the strip the Demon is, there are available narrow "front runner" wheels that alleviate front-end weight, and 3,000 vehicles are expected to be released here in the States. Deliveries will commence this fall, and hardcore drag enthusiasts in Atlanta and the entire Southeast should be reverent: this is one game-changing, sinister and muscular ride.
This year the auto industry has been shaken wildly with the release of some of the fastest and most furious production cars ever made. While many out there that are enduring their daily commutes are looking for cars that are optimum on fuel usage and environmentally-friendly traits, it's obvious that they yearn for sheer adventure. Many drivers right here in Atlanta are allowed generously to daydream about placid mountain peaks and exploring the wild: and this is whre the Jeep brand has always led many to fresh and dream-fulfilling flowing water. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the proud owner of a supercharged V-8, and is the ultimate machine for a citizen who isn't needing as suped-up a rig as some of the hot rod crew demands.
The new Trackhawk will reach 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds, and it's amazing that it can do so when other major players in this year's offerings do the same with specs 1000 pounds lighter. There is no electronic governor on the Trackhawk, which rules the quarter-mile in 11.6 seconds. When Dodge wowed many with the release of the Challenger SRT Demon this year, they made many in the industry quake in the boots with their much-anticipated limited release. There were many firsts associated with this vehicle, especially within the realms of sheer power, braking system and speed capabilities.
The Torque Reserve launch-control feature that is found in the Trackhawk is the same that the widget for this function in the SRT Demon has, and it does a great job of pulling weight. The Torque reserve launch-control feature holds the supercharger bypass valve closed while working overtime to cut spark and fuel to specific cylinders: this is what ultimately limits amount of torque before the release of the brake takes place. This supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 has wonderfully forged pistons, heavy-duty bearings, 11.6 PSI blower pushing. If you find yourself in a situation that is in desperate need of tow assistance, this vehicle can drag up to 7200 pounds.
The performance catalog released by Mopar states that the Hellcat V-8 engine and supercharger combined weigh 800 pounds, which is notably heavier than the 6.4-liter that is found in the Grand Cherokee SRT. As far as brakes, you're going to want to know that you're covered by a well-engineered set, with two-piece units securely gripped by six-piston caliper that won't let you down in a pinch. Jeep enthusiasts have been waiting for quite some time to have this very powerful Hellcat-driven beast be available, and the time has finally come. Truly a vehicle that is able to conquer any safari, ski trip, or impromptu run out to the nearest lake, there are going to be plenty of ways you can play with this unearthly and supreme beast. Landmark Dodge Morrow is more than excited to show you the many different ways an addition of a Grand Cherokee can conquer the canyon, or vigilantly verify that you have a smooth jaunt to the office.
If anything can be said about Moab, it's that the very rugged and diverse terrain is known to be a proving ground of sorts. Just as speed tests are administered in other parts of the desert, Moab is a location that will push a vehicle to its limits as far as quickness, climbing and "sheer combat" mode.
Jeep and Mopar have teamed up to create an offering of hot new vehicles that will make their debut at this year's annual Easter Jeep Safari. This is a well-anticipated event that is attended by thousands who love nothing more than off-road thrills, and are looking to spend the week chasing them. Some of the most challenging trails in the world call Moab home, as this is the primo proving ground for off-roading.
is a modernized spin on the classic 1993 ZJ. It is being released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Grand Cherokee, and comes with custom 18-inch wheels in lace style. It is more than ready for the test with its 33p-inch mud terrain KM2 tires, and both the front and rear axles are equipped with a 2-inch suspension lift and locking differentials. The interior is fully inspired by the great grunge decade: 1990's features like an old-school car phone reside within.
will have no problem on its 2017 conquest of the varied Moab terrain. The very family-focused vehicle was constructed with the objective of giving the backseat passengers a fantastic view during the ride. The concept is a bit like a Wrangler, featuring a two-level aluminum cargo rack to haul your fishing or camping gear, and LED headlampts to shine through the evening dust you're likely to kick up. The "windoors" are made of lightweight aluminum and clear vinyl, and give the vehicle's entrance point a great way to jive with the outdoors.
was made for enthusiasts who love to drive in the challenging locations such as Moab. It's the true hotrod of the bunch, backed by a Mopar 392 Crate Hemi engine. The concept is quite a bit like a Wrangler's, with a longer wheelbase, highly-trimmed front, and cleverly chopped windshield. There's even a recovery rope in the rear, which takes the place of a drag racer's parachute. Interior features are simple, and this is going to be incredibly well-received at Moab. Tires on the Quicksand are made for the toughest to navigate of surfaces, and you'll notice the boost that the coilover shocks offer for knobby navigation.
does the job of taking over where the Compass Trailhawk left off, and is a vehicle that can provide the most awesome of support for the die-hard offroader. Some of the fine points of the Trailpass are its 1.5-inch lift kit, and 18-inch wheels for increased off-road accessibility. The signature roof basket looks awesome, and the exterior has super cool Gloss Black side mirror caps. Comfortable Katzkin leather seats and armrests are inside for optimum comfort while cruising, and the Trailpass gets its muscle from a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine.
is named appropriately after the treacherous and jaw-dropping trails that provide thrills on Moab's offering of terrain. The combination of Mopar and Jeep performance includes a 4-inch lift, and the absorption capabilities of the Remote Reservoir Fox shocks. The bumpers are signature 10th-anniversary steel, and 17-inch concept wheels will fulfill the need for perfect navigation on Moab's punishing offering. For any situation during any limited amount of sunshine, there are LED headlight and fog lamps, LED tail lamps, and a new-concept LED off-road windshield light bar.
