Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Continues to Earn Praise

Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Continues to Earn Praise

Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Continues to Earn Praise

If you think the minivan segment is slowly fading away, think again. The Chrysler Pacifica just debuted for the 2018 model year, and it has made huge waves in the automobile industry. This minivan sets new standards for its segment, offering thoughtful features like easy to use, flexible seating; an in-cabin vacuum; and intelligent, family-friendly entertainment technology throughout the cabin. The Chrysler Pacifica has even been named “the best” in several award categories.

One category in which the Chrysler Pacifica earned its honorable superlative was when it was called “2018 Best Hybrid Vehicle to Buy” by the The Car Connection. This minivan was the first to come in a hybrid powertrain, making it all the more versatile. The Car Connection also called the Chrysler Pacifica the “2018 Best Minivan to Buy.” Green Car Reports, which focuses on hybrid, electric, and fuel-efficient vehicles, called this minivan the “2018 Best Car to Buy.”

At Rochester Hills CDJR, we love to hear that our favorite minivan is also a favorite among many shoppers and reviewers in the American market. Its sales have continued to increase and we expect that buyers will continue to choose the Chrysler Pacifica for its exceptional efficiency, its thoughtful features, and advanced safety and technology.

If you’d like to see the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica for yourself, stop by Rochester Hills CDJR for a test drive.

The Most Expensive Ram Truck Yet

The Most Expensive Ram Truck Yet; 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition.

The Most Expensive Ram Truck Yet; 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition.

Different shoppers look for different things out of their automobiles. That’s no mystery. But some people might have trouble choosing between aesthetics and functionality. That battle between values becomes obsolete when you look at the most expensive Ram truck yet—the new 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition. This high-end trim level is named after an extremely strong metal. While there is no tungsten in the makeup of this truck (since the metal itself is very rare), that name does well to indicate that these pickups hold onto the rugged, strong capability of the Ram pickups while adding unlikely luxurious features that are far and few between in hard-working trucks.

The 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition comes crafted with white-and-indigo leather, a suede headliner, and real wood trim. It’s also packed with standard and indulgent features, such as a heated steering wheel, the Uconnect infotainment system on an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and smartphone compatibility with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

If you want people to know that you value both capability and style, or if you simply want the most luxurious truck on the market, don’t hesitate to stop by Rochester Hills CDJR to try out the 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition.


Prepare your Car for Winter and Be Ready for Anything

Prepare your Car for Winter

Prepare your Car for Winter

Winter driving can be stressful for you and hard on your vehicle. With a little preparation, though, there’s no need to let the cold weather slow you down. Here are some ways to properly prepare your car for winter from Rochester Hills CDJR.

Monitor your tires

Cold weather can cause the air in your tires to compress, which leads to deflated tires. Keeping your tires filled with the correct amount of air is crucial to optimal traction and handling. The last thing you want on snowy or icy roads is to lose grip, so keep an eye on your tires all winter long.

Test your Battery

Those cold winter mornings are extra taxing on your car’s battery, so before the weather turns ugly, make sure your battery is fully charged. If it’s not holding a full charge, it’s time to replace it.

Pack an Emergency Kit

It’s important to keep an emergency kit in your vehicle during the winter. If you’re ever stranded in the cold, be prepared by stowing blankets, water, food, and a cell phone charger in your car so you can wait out the elements until help arrives.


This year, skip the stress and be prepared. Take these simple winter car preparation tips and be ready for anything! If your vehicle needs a new battery or tires, stop by Rochester Hills CDJR before the cold rolls in.
