  • Atlanta Dodge muscle car fanatics! Dodge is pinning this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise as the perfect place to re-introduce two nameplates that you may be familiar with- the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona. Yep, that’s right. The all-new 2017 Challenger T/A and 2017 Charger Daytona are headed our way.

    “More than 1.5 million enthusiasts are expected to come to Woodward to celebrate classic muscle cars this week, so it’s a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona with new special editions,” states Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars - Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA - North America. “We’ll continue to celebrate the brand’s muscle car performance heritage with another special-edition later this fall.”

    Wondering where the power will come from? These two new vehicles will be available with the 6.4-liter “392” HEMI V-8 engine, producing 485 horsepower or the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, which produces about 375 horsepower when paired with the new electronically controlled active performance power system.

    Production for the 2017 Challenger T/A and 2017 Charger Daytona is set to begin this fall, so we don’t have too long of a wait. Orders for the Charger will be available in September and the the Challenger T/A models will be the following month, October.

  • Just in case you missed it, Sergio Marchionne, Fiat Chrysler CEO, confirmed earlier this year that a Jeep Wrangler Pickup is becoming a reality. After being teased with concepts for over a decade now, it’s about time the company brings something tangible for us dreamers to look forward to by the end of next year. 

    The heavy details are quite minimal but many are thinking this Wrangler will be built with more aluminum (similar to the Ford F-150) in order to reduce its weight, and therefore lead to increased fuel economy. It has also been rumored that the Wrangler will receive a new 300 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine...and possibly a diesel and hybrid version. 

    A recent string of spy photos have proved the Jeep Wrangler Pickup is no joke, with a spacious bed and off-road tires. Although it is heavily camouflaged, we’re hoping these shots will hold you over until we’re all able to find out more. 

    While you wait, we hope you come visit us at Landmark DCJR to check out our current Jeep Wrangler lineup! 

  • Chrysler has recently released a web series of seven short-length “Street Smart” videos, each highlighting one of the many impressive features of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Starring Jim Gaffigan, these videos are an extension of the brand’s “Dad Brand” campaign and, in our opinion, are hilariously entertaining.
    Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands- Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA- North America stated, “Our new “Street Smarts web series is a natural extension of our ‘Dad Brand’ marketing campaign, and patently demonstrates how the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica outsmarts the competition with its unprecedented total of 115 innovations and class-exclusive features.”
    The different features the videos highlight include the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica’s available Parksense Rear Park Assist, Stow ‘n Go Seating, second-row EasyTilt seating, the Stow ‘n Go Vac, hands-free sliding door, Uconnect Theater, and the tri-pane panoramic sunroof. 

    Check 'em out for yourself below. Then be sure to stop in Landmark DCJR to check out the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and give it a test drive! 

  • The Dodge Charger Of The SUVs

    Monday, August 15, 2016

    Fans of the Jeep Grand Cherokee will want to check out the Dodge Durango—a sportier, fun to drive SUV that has the added bonus of third-row seating and the racier look associated with a Dodge. 
    Considered the “Dodge Charger of SUV’s,” the Durango can be upgraded to an R/T AWD version, which is powered by a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine. Riding an inch lower than the basic model, the R/T has been fitted with a cast iron deep-skirt block, aluminum cylinder heads with variable valve timing, port fuel injectors, and cylinder deactivation during light-load cruising to maximize EPA-rated mpg. It has been equipped with paddle shifters, 20-inch aluminum wheels fitted with 265/50R-20 low-rolling-resistance all-season radials, and dual exhaust tips. Additionally, an exciting new feature of the 2016 Durango is its “sport mode,” which delays upshifts, increases steering effort, and sharpens throttle response. The Durango boasts impressive body control and resistance to excessive lean; making for a fun, smooth ride. 
    This exciting new edition has also been affixed with an 8.4-inch dashboard touchscreen, Dodge’s Connect Access, and a Yelp search function. It is the perfect vehicle for those families who are seeking more space without sacrificing their vehicle’s sporty looks. Interested in seeing the new Dodge Durango for yourself? Come to Landmark Dodge in Atlanta, GA and test drive one today! 

  • The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is still rolling strong after entering the fifth year of its second-generation design. This “Street and Racing” SUV produces about 500 horsepower and is one of the most powerful Jeeps on the market. Comparable to the BMW X6M, Mercedes- AMG GLE63, Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged, the Grand Cherokee SRT knows how to hang with the big guys.

    With an eight-speed automatic transmission that was brought to the 2014 model and the active noise cancellation that was added in 2015, Jeep has done a phenomenal job of keeping this vehicle in the current century. In 2016, a configurable electronic display was revamped and a custom setting was added to the Selec-Track drive modes- allowing the driver to personalize everything from the throttle and shifting to all-wheel drive. The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT has that deep, Hemi rumble and a sharp throttle response. The traction and unparalleled and steering is quick. The upscale interior offers plenty of cabin space, comfortable seating and up-to-date technology. We know you want to check out this beauty for yourself… so stop by Landmark DCJR in Atlanta, GA to give it a test drive!
  • Atlanta truck buyers! Remember the Ram Mega Cab that was first introduced to us in 2006? It looks like it will be making an appearance in the 1500 lineup just in time for the 2018 model-year. A string of spy shots have been released and it’s pretty obvious that this 1500’s cab is much more lengthy than your standard 1500 cab (even through the camouflage efforts).

    If you recall, the Mega Cab is comparable to a stretched limousine- offering 44 inches of legroom and seating up to six people- very comfortably. The rear seats reclined like La-Z-Boy’s and bins provided plenty of storage for tools or other equipment to take along on the ride. It even received its own list of achievements, such as “largest interior cargo volume of any full-size pickup” and “largest second row legroom”.

    Some of the other photos show interesting characteristics- such as a covered steering wheel (which is likely cosmetic updates) and two small spots that could possibly be cameras… 360-degree imaging, anyone?

    We don’t know about you but our team at Landmark DCJR is pretty excited to test this one out!

    We’ll be sure to update you when we know more!

  • Although the Dodge Charger is typically known for its bad-boy appearance and performance all packaged into one- this model, the 2016 Dodge Charger SXT Blacktop, is a little different. If you’re on the market for a sedan that keeps the family in mind without sacrificing the rebellious visuals, this one’s for you.

    With power coming from a 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Charger Blacktop edition produces 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque and has the ability to reach 60 mph in 6.4 seconds. Though powerful, any Dodge fanatic knows this is not quite the oomph behind the V8 models, proving the company may have had a different consumer in mind when manufacturing this appearance-package vehicle.
    When it comes to braking and handling, the Charger SXT Blacktop is top-quality. The brakes are very responsive, whether stopping suddenly or gradually and the handling offered unparalleled grip in corners along with stiff steering. Road imperfections are hardly noticeable, so needless to say, this two-ton sedan offers a very smooth ride. Lastly, the interior is spacious, providing plenty of space for cargo and passengers. The center stack is straightforward and accompanied by an easy-to-use multi-touch infotainment system, which is equipped with audio and climate controls, navigation, apps and more. Interested in checking out this 2016 Dodge Charger SXT Blacktop? Come see us at Landmark Dodge in Morrow, GA!
