2015 Chrysler 200

Fiat Chrysler sparked a bit of controversy last week, when some information inadvertently leaked, indicating that the auto company might be designing a diesel engine for one of their passenger cars, the 2015 Chrysler 200.

Allpar, a car enthusiast website that admittedly offers “no guarantees regarding validity … of information” in their disclaimer, mentioned a 2.2-liter “DeTomaso” diesel engine as an option for the Chrysler 200, which was then backed up by Automotive News, a reputable industry trade journal.

Adding even more credit to this possibility, Italian engine-makers Alfa Romeo are currently designing an engine that matches that of the Chrysler 200 listing. And yes, Alfa Romeo has frequently worked with the Italian car company called – you guessed it – “DeTomaso.”

However – Chrysler itself hasn’t confirmed the diesel engine option.

The Alfa Romeo engine in production is said to have multiple horsepower outputs, ranging from 135 to 200 horsepower. What do you think about this 2015 Chrysler 200 diesel engine?

Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk: 2015 Four Wheeler Of The Year

The Four Wheeler Network scoured the earth to determine the 2015 Four Wheeler of the Year. More appropriately, they scarred the earth, testing three off-road vehicles that met their initial testing criteria. The SUVs had to be “all-new or substantially revised, have a two-speed transfer case (or equivalent), a production run of 1,500 vehicles in the U.S., and be on sale by March 15, 2015.”  At the end of the day, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk stood proudly at the top of the pile.

The Four Wheeler Network found that the Trailhawk justified its name and did “very well on the trail.” The number of off-road features that helped this Jeep win are almost too numerable to count. Certainly, it’s 48.4 crawl ratio didn’t hurt its performance. There’s also a rear-locking differential, skid plates and the Selec-Terrain and Selec-Speed Crawl systems that allow the driver to adjust the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk’s response and handling.

The Trailhawk was also measured for its on-road performance. Though it took some getting used to, the judges admired the Jeep’s ESS (Engine Start-Stop) technology. One judge commented on its “comfortable, smooth ride that is perfect for a long trip.” Another said that the “Cherokee is a pleasure to drive on the highway.”

Finally, one judge gave his final endorsement, saying, “Extremely likable car-based SUV that’s way more capable and fun in the dirt than you’d ever imagine.” We couldn’t put it any better than that! Check out the new Trailhawk here at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM!
