We are so excited about all of the innovations that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV are bringing to Jeep factories. This incredible investment was to move towards the goal of producing new hybrid and fully-electric Jeep vehicles. The electrification of the Jeep brand is sure to change the game when it comes to SUV models, and your local Jeep dealership can’t wait to be part of this revolution. At the recent Geneva Auto Show, Jeep debuted two brand new plug-in hybrid versions of both the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Renegade. These are two of the most affordable Jeep models in the line-up, so it is great to see that Jeep is making conservation and environmentally-friendly vehicles an affordable goal for customers. These models are rumored to be available in early 2020, and your local Jeep dealership can’t wait for them to hit production lines.
These vehicles are expected to generate between 190 horsepower and 240 horsepower, sending power to your back wheels in order to get you going. When using strictly the battery, these models will be able to drive about 31 miles per charge. A plug-in hybrid version of the ever-popular Jeep Wrangler is predicted to debut sometime in mid-2020, a little later than the Renegade and the Compass. We can’t wait to see the PHEV hybrid option of this vehicle and the way it will boost both efficiency and drivability. Jeep’s entire lineup will eventually be electrified, bringing customers more options when it comes to affordable hybrid family vehicles. At Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we are excited for these hybrid and electric models to debut, and we can’t wait for our customers to test drive the vehicle that grabs their attention the most.

“F-150’s smart engineering, plus the innovative combination of its high-strength steel frame and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body continues to demonstrate enduring customer benefits – from repeated class-leading crash test performance to best-in-class towing and payload,” stated Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing.
The 2019 Ford F-150 had a successful session at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) pickup truck crash testing, scoring better than the half-ton competitors. This truck proudly scored the best rating possible of ‘Good’ on every measurable test. When you take a look at the truck’s competitors, you will find some other ‘Good’ scores, but no truck brings you the consistent and elite safety that you will find with the 2019 Ford F-150. The All-New Ram 1500 and the Nissan Titan both had ‘Good’ overall passenger and driver side overlap tests, while the Toyota Tundra earned the lowest possible scores: a “Marginal” rating during the overall driver side and a “Poor” rating during the passenger side overall test. Both the new Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra also received low marks during the passenger side structure portion of the crash test and the passenger side test.
There are a number of different ways that the Ford F-150 prepares to help with crash resilience. This truck is outfitted with the patented extruded aluminum roof cross member and special wheel blockers that work to deflect and absorb any impact that you may encounter. The Ram 1500 features a brand new splayed frame rail up front that serves the same purpose, but not with the same reliability that you will get from the Ford F-150. Not only will you get a lightweight yet heavy-duty and sturdy body on your F-150, but it also comes complete with a full suite of safety features that can boost both peace of mind and drivability. This truck comes with a 360-degree Camera featuring Split-View and a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®). These two features work together to keep you aware of everything that is happening around your vehicle at any time. If a collision does occur, the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ will help emergency personnel find your vehicle and keep other accidents from happening. Come to one of our Preston Motor Ford locations today, and test drive the top-rated Ford F-150 that piques your interest the most.

According to an article from Jalopnik, adding this system elevates a new Mazda3 for sale from “Good Car to Something Better Than Good Car.” Mazda has the revolutionary I-ACTIV AWD® system that uses others factors besides engine power and wheel speed to figure out where to best apply torque. This remarkable system deploys 27 different sensors more than 200 times per second to gather important information. It collects G-forces, brakes and steering data, temperature, and other conditions into consideration to deliver optimal performance. The expert team at your Mazda Dover DE dealer is thrilled at the precision of the Mazda I-ACTIV AWD® system. Make your way to Preston Mazda, and explore a new Mazda3 for sale with this system today.
In his Jalopnik review, writer Erik Shilling states how impressed he was with the handling of a 2019 Mazda3 equipped with the I-ACTIV AWD® system. This amazing system uses the data it collects to actually estimate what future conditions you will encounter during the course of your journey. Doing so lets your Mazda3 better allocate the torque emitting from your engine to any necessary wheels to keep the highest levels of control, stability, and forward momentum. So what does that actually mean? It means the I-ACTIV AWD® system will already have compensated for any slick road conditions or rough terrains before you even notice them, giving you the confidence to continue enjoying your journey. The professionals at your Mazda Annapolis dealer fully agree with Shilling, and we think that a 2019 Mazda3 with all-wheel-drive capabilities makes this astonishing vehicle even more jaw-dropping. We invite you to come in and experience a new Mazda3 for sale that has the outstanding I-ACTIV AWD® today!

In a bold move, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has announced that it will invest a staggering $4.5 billion in five plants in Michigan for one purpose: to engineer all-new Jeep SUV models. An article from Reuters states that FCA wants to compete in the extremely lucrative market of full-size three-row SUV models that has long been “dominated by rivals General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co.” The article also states that these five plants are projected to create an amazing 6,500 jobs in the state of Michigan. Three of the new plants are expected to produce both hybrid and fully-electric Jeep models, something that could change the entire game for the SUV market. The expert team at Millsboro Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, your local Jeep dealer in Delaware, is very excited by this news because it means FCA will be adding its renowned elegance and master craftsmanship to the rugged performance of the Jeep brand.
According to Reuters, FCA Chief Executive Officer Mike Manley said that the company’s investments are focused on SUV models, an area he said is “forecasted to continue to grow.” He also said FCA is particularly interested in engineering their own three-row SV models, which he said is “a segment that I’ve been very interested in for some time.” FCA also announced that it will be turning a Detroit-based engine plant into an assembly plant. It plans to start construction on this $1.6 billion facility later this year, start production of an all-new three-row SUV model by the end of 2020, and follow that with a revamped version of the popular Grand Cherokee in early 2021. Another Detroit-based plant will receive a $900 million investment, becoming modernized and ready to engineer the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
“This opportunity is unlike anything we have seen in decades” – Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan
