2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit Technology Updated for Police Use

2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit Technology

The new 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit technology will be compatible with law enforcement computer system software. The easy-to-use, award-winning Uconnect system is being modified for police use with fully-integrated, exclusive mobile command capabilities that will allow officers to access their computer systems on a simple, centrally-located monitor without dragging along their laptops.

In comparison to the standard Charger Pursuit’s 5-inch display, the 2016 Charger Pursuit will feature a 12.1-inch touchscreen that can toggle either to the traditional and familiar 8.4-inch Uconnect interface or to the officer’s own personal computer with the touch of a button. The touchscreen will work even when the user is wearing gloves, and has been tested in extreme temperatures. There is even an option for officers to plug in and store their mobile laptop in the trunk and connect it to the Uconnect system via Ethernet.

The change to the 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit technology was definitely developed with law enforcement in mind, and makes their jobs easier, safer, and more comfortable. The instruments they need to keep their communities safe will all be right in front of them, visible, and accessible.

According to Chrysler, engineers travel north to Michigan every year to test mostly Ram 2500 and 3500 models. The culmination of this annual testing has resulted in the Ram Snow Chief Package, a fine-tuned and decked-out package featuring everything you’ll need to move mounds of snow.

“Only a small percentage of Ram truck owners will subject their truck or van to the harshest winter conditions, but for those who do our durability testing procedures instill confidence,” said Mike Cairns, Director of Ram Truck Engineering. “When it’s minus 20 outside and I walk up to my Ram Truck on a morning of a Michigan winter, I have a sense of self-reliance and assurance that my truck will start.”

The Ram Snow Chief Package includes an upgraded cooling system, high-amp alternator, anti-spin differential, plow lighting, transfer case skid plate, and a heavy-duty suspension. This is available on Ram 2500, 3500, 4500, and 5500 models in 4×4 and 4×2 models. This just goes to show that Ram pickups are designed for virtually any job.

New Smartphone Uconnect App Unveiled at CES

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we get to see some of the most exciting new technologies coming our way from across practically every industry, including automotive. This year, from Chrysler, now known as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), we get a new smartphone Uconnect app that has some pretty cool features.

With the Uconnect Access app, drivers will be able to remotely program a destination into their navigation system, get a vehicle health report, receive alerts when key vehicle systems need maintenance, and even locate their car using their phone.

“The Uconnect team is dedicated to delivering services and features that are innovative, functional and most of all easy to use,” said Al Amici, Head of Global Uconnect System and Services, FCA US LLC, in a statement. “We understand that our customers lead busy lifestyles and our goal is to minimize the everyday stresses by providing drivers with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicle.”

Imagine having this app on your phone. Then, the next time you can’t remember where you parked in a crowded parking lot, simply open the Vehicle Finder and see a map of exactly where your car is. You can then select Sound Horn and find your car in a snap.

Or, you can save yourself some time by presetting your destinations before you get in the car. Just find where you want to go in the Uconnect Access app, select Send to Vehicle, and when you start your car touch Go Now and you’re on your way.

Initially, the app will only be compatible with select 2015 Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep models equipped with either Uconnect 8.4A or 8.4AN, but will be added to additional vehicles as the system progresses.

2015 Dodge Viper Puts $15,000 in Your Pocket

In its fifth generation, the 2015 Dodge Viper manages to maintain its roots from 1992 that made it the all-American supercar that it is. Meanwhile, the performance vehicle features modern updates including improved fuel economy, increased horsepower, and a significantly decreased price.

That’s right, the 2015 Viper will debut with a starting price of $84,995, a whopping $15,000 less than the 2014 model. Comparatively, the 2015 model is even less expensive than the original would cost when accounting for inflation.

“The Gen 1 Viper had 400 horsepower. It didn’t have air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, traction control or stability control. It didn’t even have real windows. It was the purest, rawest and most visceral American performance car of its time,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge and SRT Brand president and CEO.

“The Gen 5 Viper maintains the purity of the original car, with its seductive design, perfect weight balance and all-aluminum V10 with an additional 245 horsepower. But the rawness has been tamed with state-of-the-art five-mode ESC, two-mode suspension, ABS, traction control, launch control and a lightweight structure comprised of carbon fiber, magnesium and aluminum. Despite the Gen 5’s massive leap forward in technology and performance, we’re pulling its starting price back to the equivalent of the original Gen 1 car.”

It doesn’t get much better than that, folks. Make sure you have plans to come visit us at Warsaw CDJR early in 2015 to get behind the wheel of this powerful car, which has a rich history and a bright future.

It Doesn’t Get Much Faster Than the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

No, it isn’t a race car, but it sure does know how to act like one. Not only is the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat the most powerful muscle car in the business, it’s also the fastest.

The powerhouse vehicle was clocked by the National Hot Rod Association as completing a quarter-mile run at 125 miles per hour in 11.2 seconds. Measured using drag radials, the time dropped to just 10.8 seconds at 126 mph.

“It wasn’t long ago that a 10-second car, was a full-on race car. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger raises the bar to a level some of us never thought we’d see,” said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge and SRT Brands. “With the new Challenger SRT Hellcat, we’re reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car era of the street and strip dual-purpose car. Not only can Challenger run 10s on the drag strip, but you can also fit your family and drive cross country. This new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the ultimate GT muscle car.”

The 2015 Challenger SRT will arrive here at Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram later this year. Is your family ready for this kind of racing performance on your next road trip?
