When shopping Great West Chrysler’s new vehicle inventory, consider these four important vehicle components: drivetrain, braking abilities, suspension, and dash display. Here we’ll review the components of three of Great West Chrysler’s top selling models– the 2018 Grand Cherokee, RAM 1500, and Grand Caravan. Read about these vehicles here, and make the most educated decision possible on your next purchase.
2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Whether on or off road, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers a stellar driving experience. Whether you’re a speed demon or a treehugger, the Grand Cherokee offers a selection of engine options that could keep any driver happy.
A 3.6L Pentastar engine with stop/start technology produces plenty of power for towing whilst offering a combined 11.8L/100km. For a little more pep, choose from a 5.7L Hemi V8, 6.4L SRT, or supercharged 6.2L V8, producing a jaw-dropping 707 horsepower and 650 lb/ft of torque.
All engine options are paired with a 4×4-capable 8-speed manual transmission, providing a wide range of gearing for any driving situation. A vehicle this capable needs impressive braking capabilities, and the Jeep Cherokee delivers it. 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes are supported by Ready Alert Braking and Rain Brake Support for stopping in emergency situations. Optional Quadra-Lift Air Suspension System provides smooth driving, made even smoother with a Uconnect 4 7-inch touchscreen multimedia center. It’s safe to say that the Jeep Grand Cherokee checks all important component boxes.
2018 Ram 1500
If any vehicle should follow the 2018 Jeep Cherokee in terms of features and components, it’s the 2018 RAM 1500. Choose a fuel-efficient Pentastar 3.6L V6, 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, or 5.7L Hemi paired with either a six or eight-speed transmission. Anti-lock disc brakes are supported by Brake Assist, and the Ram 1500’s multi-link coil suspension can be easily upgraded with Active-Level technology.
The 2018 RAM 1500 interior features an available 5” touchscreen with a Parkview Rear Back-Up Camera. Whether you use your vehicle for work or play, the Ram 1500 is a great option.
2018 Dodge Grand Caravan
Despite its reputation for family-hauling, the 2018 Grand Caravan is well equipped for a gear-head driver.
All trim lines are equipped with Canada’s best selling 3.6L Pentastar V6, fit for commuting, towing, or weekend road trips. A winner of the Wards 10 Best Engines award, the Grand Caravan’s Pentastar produces 283 hp, 260lb/ft of torque, and a 6-speed transmission. Antilock disc brakes with Brake Assist keep your family safe, and you’ll barely feel the road with a suspension supported by Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control. An optional 6.5” touchscreen multimedia center makes driving easy easier with Parkview backup camera and Garmin navigation.
Now in it’s 5th generation, the Grand Caravan has a proven legacy of great design. And with such a bright 2018, expect this legacy to continue long into the future.
