Motor Trend Picks Ram 1500 As 2019 Truck Of The Year

Ram 1500

Motor Trend recently announced that it has chosen the Ram 1500 as the 2019 Truck of the Year. Our staff at Millsboro CDJR, your local Jeep dealer in Delaware, is excited that we have this incredible, award-winning truck in stock. An article by Motor Trend states that Ram did an amazing job of revamping this truck for 2019 while still keeping everything that Ram fans love about the 1500. The 2019 Ram 1500 marks the fifth generation of this truck, and it definitely capitalizes on that rich heritage. Here at Millsboro CDJR, your Delaware Jeep dealer, we are glad to tell you that the 2019 Ram 1500 outdid other popular truck models, like the Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado, to reign as king of its class.

Ram 1500

Truck fans will be happy to know that the 2019 Ram 1500 has a whole new lineup of eTorque mild-hybrid engines. These engines use small electric starter-generators and a small 0.43-kW-hr battery to enhance the performance of your start/stop system, as well as add a small boost to your torque. It will also eliminate the need for your standard eight-speed automatic transmission to downshift. You will find the new eTorque technology standard in the 3.6L V6 engine that delivers a powerful 305 horsepower, and the 5.7L V8 engine that allows for a monstrous 395 horsepower. For those who want more performance and force, we recommend that you check out the earth-shattering available non-eTorque V8 engine. The writers at Motor Trend were impressed by how well the standard engine performs and how much force the V8 engines could generate, especially the eTorque edition. Our team at Millsboro CDJR, your local Jeep dealer in Millsboro, will be glad to further touch on these engines and let you experience the 2019 Ram 1500 for yourself.

Motor Trend also explained how impressed they were at the attractive, streamlined sheet metal that forms the body of the 2019 Ram 1500. The available interiors were also huge hits because you can take your pick of elegant materials and outstanding designs for all of the trim levels of this truck, including the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited or the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn. Efficiency and luxurious comfort are combined to provide you with an absolutely beautiful cabin that your passengers will be sure to love. Here at Millsboro CDJR, we are huge fans of the 2019 Ram 1500 and fully agree with Motor Trend’s decision. Visit us today and find out for yourself why this stellar truck is the 2019 Truck of the Year!Ram 1500

The Benefits Of Having A Remote Start For Your Ride

local custom car shopsThe automotive world has become so advanced today that there should be no need to frantically search your pockets or purse for your car keys. That is why our expert team at Bully Frog Customs, your local custom car shop, recommend that our customers looking into having a remote start feature for their ride. Not only is it convenient, but a remote start feature will be crucial in helping you stay warm this chilly winter season and can even be good for your engine. Here at Bully Frog Customs, your local customs destination, we think that the main benefits of installing a remote starter feature for your vehicle are:

Comfort

Let’s face it: no one likes to hop into their car, truck or SUV and having to sweat or shiver, depending on the season, while waiting for their car to get ready. That is where having a remote start feature truly comes in handy because you can have your ride the exact temperature you want with just the push of a button on your key fob. All you have to do is leave your climate control on when you turn your engine off, press your remote start button the next time you drive and wait a few minutes before you get inside. It’s that easy to drive off in total comfort.customs destinationSafety 

A remote start feature will also provide you with a sense of safety. It can lock or unlock your car at a distance so that you can have peace of mind about leaving your vehicle unattended. Also, warming up your car before you get inside will help clear your windows and headlights of any debris. That means it will defrost any snow or ice and improve your visibility this winter. Be sure to ask our experienced staff at Bully Frog Customs, your local custom car shop, more about how a remote start feature can help with your security.

Engine Health

Having a remote start feature can also improve the performance of your engine. In order for your car’s climate control system to begin yielding warm air, your engine has to first warm up as it runs. Since your ride typically idles for several minutes before you drive it, you will find that your engine oil becomes more viscous and gives you much better lubrication once you are ready to take off. Both gas and diesel engines can benefit from having a remote start feature from Bully Frog Customs, your local customs destination.

Here at Bully Frog Customs, your local custom car shop, we cannot wait to install a remote start feature on your ride and make your driving life a whole lot easier. Stop in and see us today!local custom car shop

Consumer Reports Rank Mazda Higher Than Ever

Preston Mazda

The quality of the Mazda brand has been on a constant rise in the last few years. According to Consumer Reports, Toyota and Lexus are the only brands outshining Mazda. This ranking is determined by owner reports and not members of the Consumer Reports team, so you know this is coming from customers who actually use the product. Based on the owner reported data, Mazda has advanced nine spots and now ranks only behind Toyota and Lexus. This improvement can be correlated to the improvements made to the CX-9 and the Miata. Out of all the Consumer Reports’ new rankings, Mazda has experienced the most dramatic move. This data was based on the results of more than 500,000 surveys from actual owners giving their real opinions.

Preston Mazda, your local Mazda dealership, is proud to be a part of this improvement. We have a number of Mazda Miata and Mazda CX-9 models that are available for purchase on our sales lot. Come into our dealership, talk to our team, and schedule your test drive so you can see these improvements for yourself. We are thrilled to continue Mazda’s tradition of providing high-quality models that drivers love. That way, the Mazda brand can continue to improve and enhance their Consumer Reports ranking even more. Come to Preston Mazda, your local Mazda dealer, and check out these improvements for yourself.

Fall Seasonal Maintenance

Easton Ford

The Preston Automotive Group wants to make sure that our clients always get the service they need for any upcoming season. Fall brings beautiful scenery; leaves falling and the weather cooling down to a comfortable temperature. However, keep in mind that this lovely fall weather can cause some issues for your vehicle if it is not properly maintained. We have listed out some of the aspects of your vehicle that you may want to check out before the fall season really gets into full swing.

Windshield Wipers – Spring and winter aren’t the only times for intense weather, as autumn also commonly entails late-night thunderstorms and even sometimes snow as you round the season out. A windshield that is dirty could lead to eye fatigue and even safety problems if the issue persists. Make sure that your windshield wipers have blades that are working correctly and replace them if you find any problems or missed spots. You should also make sure that you have enough windshield wiper fluid to keep your windshield completely clean.  

Easton Ford

Oil – You probably spent much of this past summer on the road, whether it be heading down to the beach for some fun during the day or taking that long road trip that your family has been craving all year. Either way, you’ve probably accrued some mileage on your car, truck or SUV. Make sure that you check your vehicle’s handbook to see how often you should be changing your oil. Having fresh oil can prevent engine problems and keep your fuel economy at the optimal rate. If you need your oil and/or filter changed, then come into one of the Preston Automotive Group’s service areas and get your vehicle back to peak performance.

Cooling/Antifreeze Systems – Even though fall is here, the summer heat may not be completely gone quite yet. Make sure your engine makes it through these last few hot weeks by ensuring that the cooling system has been flushed out and filled back up with coolant that is both factory approved and the right amount. Bring your vehicle into one of the Preston Automotive Group service stations and get your coolant levels checked and refilled, if needed. We can also make sure that your levels of antifreeze are where they should be, so your engine continues to perform how it should as we get closer to winter. So bring your vehicle into a Preston Automotive service department today and get it ready for the fall season under the hood.
