Working with the National Black Farmers Association, Chrysler has helped to develop a scholarship to encourage students to pursue degrees in agriculture-related study. Proving up to $5,000 in scholarships at accredited two-year and four-year colleges, universities, and vocational schools, this opportunity is helping the black farming community to expand.
According to Chrysler, the Chrysler NBFA Scholarship is given on the basis of an application, and recipients are required to have met certain criteria. This includes academic performance, leadership and participation in agricultural and community activities, and clear career goals and objectives. Only the best are selected.
“Higher education provides transformational tools, knowledge and resources,” said Lesley Slavitt, Head of Civic Engagement, FCA US LLC, and CEO of the FCA Foundation. “It is a privilege for the FCA Foundation to be a partner in ensuring that the next generation of African-American farmers receives the training and skills that will help them to thrive.”
Established in May 2015, the NBFA scholarship program has awarded 19 scholarships within one year, totaling $87,000. In 1910, nearly 1 million black families owned over 15 million acres of land. Today, less than 45,000 black families own farms, totaling 3 million. The goal is to recognize racial disparities and to encourage young black students to get involved in agriculture. Chrysler is a dedicated partner for anything that helps future generations thrive.

You may not realize it, but your favorite feature in your car just might be your radio. Imagine trying to go on a road trip without it or having to sit through a traffic jam in silence.

Too often, the signs of wear and tear on your tires can go unnoticed. Over-worn or bald tires are a major safety risk, and could cause you to lose control of your car at any time, but especially in wet weather. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Replace your tires as soon as you notice any of the following five signs that you need new tires.
Low tread depth. Make sure that your tires’ treads never fall below 1/16-inch in depth. In fact, if you often drive in wet or slick conditions, it’s recommended your tires maintain twice that depth. Check out the old penny trick to quickly and easily see if your tires pass the test.
Tread wear indicator bar. It doesn’t get much easier than this. New tires feature tread wear indicator bars that are built right into the tires. When you begin to see flat rubber bars appear that run perpendicular to the direction of the tread, it’s time to replace those tires.
Sidewall cracks or bulges. Even if your tire’s tread seems to be fine, but you notice cracks or bulges in the sidewall, it’s time for new tires. Cracks and bulges in the sidewall are a sign that your tire is weak, and may even be close to blowing out, so make your way to Warsaw Buick GMC’s service department as soon as possible.
Tire pressure. If you notice that your tires are losing more than one pound-per-square-inch (PSI) per month on average, you may have a leak.
If you notice that your car is vibrating, your tires may be misaligned or out of balance, or you may have suspension issues. Either way, you should have your technician look at it right away. Even if the tires themselves aren’t causing the vibration, they will almost always be damaged by it.
Its 2015 and with so much innovation in the works, Chrysler managed to find a way to stand out. Meet the new “Drive Proud” advertising campaign. The campaign features a range of professionals. You can find the campaign in broadcast, print, and digital form.
Chrysler’s advertising campaign is narrated by Peter Dinklage ( “Game of Thrones”) and the first commercial, “The Kings & Queens of America”, launched April 9th. The “Drive Proud” campaign features and celebrates hard work through life. No matter your profession, Chrysler’s got you covered.
“Our latest homage to the relentless and proud is ‘The Kings and Queens of America,’ where we recognize nobility not as a birthright but an earned designation. Because meaningful success doesn’t appear magically on a silver platter; it is earned and should be rewarded. The crown jewel in this case being the new Chrysler 300 – a car crafted with them in mind,” said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer.
Among the lineup are Becky Hammon, assistant coach to the San Antonio Spurs, Alexis Ohanian, cofounder of Reddit, Phil Ivey, professional gambler and entrepreneur, Kwaku Alston, photographer, and Tiffany Scrade, jewelry designer.
That isn’t all of the careers that are represented. Chrysler’s just getting started and there’s much more to come. The campaign is focused around the Chrysler 300 and centers on the message of success through hard work. If you would like to reap the luxurious rewards for your hard work, come visit us at Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to take a 300 for a test drive.
Chrysler redesigned several of their models for the 2015 model year, including the Chrysler 200 and 300 sedans. All that hard work is paying off now, too. For example, the 2015 Chrysler 200 just won the award as “Car of the Year” at the Denver Auto Show. The Chrysler 200 impressed the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press Association—and the journalists honored the new and improved 200 with the award.
The Chrysler 200 is new both inside and out. In fact, the new exterior design features the new “face” of the brand’s future designs—and what a beautiful face it is. The Chrysler 200 also provides better performance than ever before, with new powertrain options and up to 36 mpg. The Chrysler 200 balances efficiency and power quite expertly, another feature that made it stand out to the journalists.
Of course, it made it stand out to customers as well. So if you’re looking for a new sedan that offers the best of all possible sedan worlds, come see us at Warsaw CJDR to learn more about the Chrysler 200 today. We’ll show you the new face of the brand, take you inside the cabin, and even let you spin it around for a test drive as well.
This week we learned the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 has it all – style, performance, technology, and safety – as if we didn’t know that already. After rigorous testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, we at Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are pleased to announce the automaker’s new sedan passed each test with the highest rating possible, adding Top Safety Pick+ to its list of awards.
The Chrysler 200 went through five tests to determine the car’s ability to protect passengers in the event of an accident: the moderate overlap front, side impact, roof, head restraints and seats, and the arduous small overlap front. In each, the 200 scored a “good” rating.
The final test, front crash prevention, is used to determine whether the vehicle has the potential to avoid accidents before they occur. When equipped with forward collision warning technology, the Chrysler 200 passed the test with flying colors, scoring a “superior” rating.
“The 200 aced the challenging small overlap front test with a good rating in every measurement category,” said Adrian Lund, IIHS president. “Chrysler should also be commended for offering forward collision warning with autonomous braking on this mainstream midsize car. Our research shows that these systems are effective in preventing some kinds of crashes from happening altogether.”
Adding its now-proven ability to keep passengers safe, is there really any reason you aren’t already on your way to Warsaw CDJR for your 2015 Chrysler 200?
One of the most highly anticipated studies every year is released by J.D. Power. This year’s results of the Initial Quality StudySM are making big news. Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is buzzing just as much as everyone else because we happen to have both Chrysler vehicles on our lot that earned spots on the prestigious list.
The 2014 Dodge Challenger and Chrysler Town & Country achieved the highest ranking in their own segments for initial quality. Chrysler Group couldn’t be happier with the results. “This is the third time in four years that Chrysler Town & Country leads the Minivan segment in this quality survey,” said Doug Betts, Chrysler Group’s senior vice president of Quality. “It reflects the commitment of employees who develop, build and test these vehicles and their recognition that every employee has a role in continually improving the quality of our products.”
New-car owners are surveyed after they’ve owned their vehicle for 90 days. These survey answers (from 233 questions) are then compiled to make up the list of winners. The Town & Country was the highest ranking in the Minivan segment and the Challenger came out on top of the mid-size sporty cars.
While not at the top of their respective segments, the Ram 1500 and Dodge Grand Caravan placed in the top three. If you’re thinking about what high quality vehicle you should purchase next, come down to Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram so we can show you the best vehicles on the market, as voted on by your peers.
Employees everywhere are asking for time off so they can go on vacation, or just enjoy a few days at home catching up on things. There are even a couple of us here at Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram who are making plans as we speak. Things are a little different at Chrysler Group, where employees are taking time off to do work for outside organizations.
We’re talking about local non-profits, not outsourcing. “As a company, we are committed to making service to others part of our daily mission,” stated Jody Trapasso, Chrysler Group’s senior vice president of External Affairs. “Over the years, we’ve invested more than half a billion dollars in charitable organizations to help build strong communities, while our volunteer activities have impacted millions of lives. Wherever possible, we will put volunteer hours behind our grants to better drive social change.”
Chrysler has created a volunteer program, Motor Citizens, to help make the volunteering process easier for employees. Each worker in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are allotted 18 hours of paid time off for their volunteer efforts. Employees are not expected to go alone to events, they are encouraged to go in groups so that they can make as big a contribution to their communities as possible.
One group from the Michigan headquarters took advantage of this opportunity to spend a day packaging 70,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now, an organization dedicated to ending hunger around the world. This feeds directly into another statement that Jody Trapasso made, “The Chrysler Motor Citizens volunteer program goes beyond the walls of our offices to help build strong communities both here at home and around the world.”
Hey, any way you can give back to the world, then go for it. If you’re looking to get into volunteering, then check out http://www.volunteerkosciusko.com/ for some opportunities in our area.
