I haven't used the “Grand” since they dropped the long wheelbase...
Gotta save electrons wherever you can.
Yes, and bytes.
2018 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Fiat driving impressions (at https://www.allpar.com/history/chrysler-years/C21/2018-impressions.html )
"We had no problems going around at 30; going to 35 mph brought some squealing from the big Ram 2500 Dually."
Ram 3500 Dually, oops - thanks, fixed, pick a prize
What are the mopar accessories? Also, I'm in Canada if that makes a difference
Oops, that's not clear. Mopar Accessories is just a CD or DVD. You can combine a few light things... or one heavy thing.
After reading the "Chrysler Cars and Production Numbers, United States" article which covers Chrysler models from 1946 to 2012, I realized there was no mention of one of the most popular Chrysler models of the 1970's, the Cordoba.
Also, if the article is covering the Untied States models, why are the wheelbases listed in meters?
Was looking for some Jeep 4.0L specs and ran across this:
" Displacement was 3962 cc or 242 cubic inches, with a 3.88 x 3.41 inch (98.4 x 86.7 mm) bore and stroke. Compression was 9.2:1. The engine had two overhead valves per cylinder, flat-face followers, hydraulic lifters, and a cast iron block and head.
By 2003, the compression ratio had been dropped to 8.8:1; the redline was 5,300 rpm."
Compression of the 4.0L was always 8.8:1 (or 8.7:1... depending on how you round the actual number). The last 4.2L (258) had a 9.2:1 compression ratio.
The first one - the Cordoba was made in Canada.
The second one - because the writer is Canadian.
I will check that - thanks.
Source was a 1987 Jeep brochure. I am looking for more info. Could be an error on their part that I picked up.
Standard Catalog of Jeep shows it for 1987-93 at 9.2:1, then I stopped looking... 1988 press book also shows it, and 1990 press card.
I'm not saying you're wrong, because it's possible the same person copied 4.2 info into the 4.0 spaces, but I am saying I could use some documentation...
Note change: we are now providing forum upgrades and decals on demand (US/Canada) rather than the prior prize list.
New Chrysler article - remove the extraneous word "has" before "believes: from this paragraph:
"The Portal is the wild card, and its debut is more difficult to determine at this time. Development was likely slowed down when sales slumped, so FCA could reach its goal of being net-debt-free at the end of the year. That’s an important goal, because the auto market is expected to tighten over the next few years, and FCA will likely need to acquire cheaper loans to make it through. Allpar has believes that all the vehicles discussed are very far along in development, more so than maybe some realize."
That was quick! Good catch, though. I missed it when I read the article.
Thanks, fixing, there were a bunch of others in that article.
ALL ERRORS IN THAT ARTICLE ARE MY FAULT!
On the page about the 1974 and 1975 Chrysler cars, the part comparing interior space is messed up: "Comparing interior space, we see that they were less space-efficient than the 1971 or 1974 Chryslers," and it should be "1971 or 2007" since those are what's being compared in the accompanying chart.
Found a mistake. The article link is here: 1970-1974 Dodge Challenger specials: R/T, Deputy, T/A, and Rallye (at https://www.allpar.com/model/RT-TA-challenger.html )
It should say something like "front and rear tires" right? (Disregard the failed image icon, tried to host the image above on a hosting website I use and it didn't work.).
Also on the Challenger T/A & R/T page, the first paragraph describing the R/T claims it had a "sky high wing". I don't see a wing on any of the pictured cars, and nothing on the car is higher than the shoulders of the couple in the second R/T picture.
