With the Edmonton summer in full efffect, there’s never been a better time to take your car out of town for a long drive, or a cool cruise around the city. Great West Chrysler has a wide inventory of Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram models for you to choose from that’re perfect for the warm weather, so read on and see which one’s best for you!
Dodge Durango—The Road Tripper
For those looking to bring the entire family on a trip around the province for the weekend, the Dodge Durango makes an excellent choice for a large SUV. The Durango seats up to 7 passengers with over 50 seating configurations to choose from, including a 60/40-split fold-flat 2nd row reclining bench seat and a 50/50 split-folding 3rd row seat. Thinking of bringing the boat with you to the lake? The Durango’s standard towing capacity with the 3.6L Pentastar™ V6 engine goes up to 2,812 kg (6,200 lbs), making it the best in its class. You can also add additional conveniences to take your driving experience to the next level, such as the available Platinum Appearance Package with Premium Nappa leather faced seats or a second row entertainment system, complete with two 9-inch seatback-mounted screens and HDMI/USB ports to display your tech on-screen.
Jeep Wrangler—The Adventurer
This classic off-road vehicle is the perfect choice for Albertans who aren’t afraid of getting a little grime under their fingernails when choosing dirt roads over asphalt highways. The Jeep Wrangler’s 4×4 drivetrain can tackle any terrain you put it through, especially while paired with the award-winning 3.6L Pentastar™ V6 engine and your choice of an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. The latest iteration of the Wrangler comes updated with modern technologies for a more convenient and intuitive driving experience, such as hands-free Bluetooth technology and Apple CarPlay compatibility to better integrate with your smartphone needs.
Dodge Challenger—The Speed Demon
One of the most iconic muscle cars ever produced lets you burn just as much rubber today as it did back when it was first produced in 1971. The Dodge Challenger retains classic design elements from its past iterations, with its long hood, short tail, and signature four round headlamps that will make you nostalgic for the original. The Challenger also remains one of the most powerful and heart-rate elevating vehicles to drive with its 305 horsepower and 268 lb.ft of torque. If that’s still not enough, the Challenger SRT Demon model blows expectations out of the water with an overwhelming 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque. Needless to say, it’s a driving experience and power that’s matched by none—please handle responsibly.
These are only a few of the vehicles we’d recommend taking out for a spin this summer. If you’re interested in learning more about, or test driving, these models make sure to let us at Great West Chrysler know!
