Ram Special Editions are available and they are HOT

Remember the days when a truck was just a vehicle for work? A power horse to get the job done? These days our trucks are all that and so much more. With all the power, payload and towing capacity that we need, we’re also turning to our trucks as our daily drivers, our family vehicles and our night-on-the-town luxury rides.

Before the weather outside is frightful, prepare for winter’s worst

Recently, a friend of mine posted photos of the season’s first snow on her social media accounts. Generally, I wish my friends were a bit closer so I could visit them more often. But for the first time ever, I was grateful she lives nearly 2,000 miles away. I’m not quite ready for the colors of autumn to fall away and succumb to winter white. … Read More

Great Halloween costumes for your … car?

Recalculate adventure in a new Jeep® Compass

Recently, a friend and colleague mentioned that, as he nears the point of having a teen driver in his house, he’s looking at purchasing a 2018 Jeep® Compass.

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid lobbies for ‘Official Family Vehicle for California’ title

If you were to guess which state sold the most hybrid vehicles, and you said California, you would be correct. If you were to guess which state sold the most minivans, and you said California, you would be correct again. So, would it surprise you to discover that the Chrysler brand is lobbying for the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid, the only hybrid minivan in the … Read More

Release your Renegade – Jeep® brand celebrates the renegade spirit

A renegade, by today’s definition, is someone who rejects convention. Someone who thinks outside of the box, takes risks and celebrates being different. Today, the Jeep® brand is celebrating the renegade spirit in a new “Release your Renegade” campaign, featuring break-out musical artist Halsey (Astralwerks Records) and her new single, “Bad at Love,” in a 30-second video. In addition, up-and-coming artists Molly Kate Kestner (Atlantic … Read More

Recharge OR refuel on the way to Sesame Street

Remember when sunny days swept the clouds away? When, for an hour each day, you joined your friends where the air was sweet. Remember getting to Sesame Street? These days, old favorites like Big Bird, Grover and Cookie Monster are still playing, singing and laughing (except Oscar, of course) their way down the old, familiar path. But now they’re also riding in style with a … Read More
