As of yesterday, according to oh2o, Chrysler has raised prices on many vehicles, presumably reflecting the company’s own cost increases. Small price adjustments are normal through the year. In this case, most of the price hikes appear to be on upper level models, indicating perhaps increased costs for leather, safety equipment, or other high end gear.
The biggest price hikes were on SRT cars and 200/ Avenger.
200: the base model rose by $600 while Touring and Limited went up $330 and $340, respectively. Convertibles all went up by $250. However, on 200 Touring I-4, buyers can drop down to the four-speed for a $500 credit.
Avenger rose by $700 for SE and $600 for SXT, but Blacktop and Rallye were dropped by $200 to $395, and as with 200, SXT/I-4 buyers can drop down to the four-speed for a $500 credit.
300: 300S rose by $100 and 300C by $150 (with or without Luxury).
Town & Country S rose by $200, Limited by $300.
Charger SE rose by $200, but the eight-speed has been dropped by $200; it now costs $1,100 on Charger SE. With the eight speed, Charger SE can do 0-60 in 6.4 seconds and gains four mpg on the highway.
Grand Cherokee, $200 on Laredo and Summit, $300 on Limited
Wrangler, $100 on Sahara and Sport two-door; $200 on Sport, Sahara, Rubicon, Sport RHD four-door.
Compass: $100 to $300 depending on model and drive
Ram: $185 across the board on 1500, 2500, and 3500. $210 on 4500 and 5500.
Long before the Challenger Hellcat was officially launched, Allpar noted that the engine — which we estimated at “620-680 horsepower” (depending on when the stories were written) — was being tested in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Then we wrote that it had probably been ruled out, for various reasons. Today, one source wrote that the trademarked Trackhawk name, which we had thought [...]
Months after unconfirmed reports made it to Allpar’s pages, the power of Automotive News, in the person of reporter Larry Vellequette, pried a key fact from Chrysler executives — that they cast and build “Ferrari” engines for Maserati. As our sister site pentastars.com reported, the engines are actually cast in Kokomo, and machined in the Trenton Engine plant, using a mixture of [...]
