Jeep® Reveals the Grand Wagoneer Concept

Grand Wagoneer Concept | Toronto, ON

Over 60 years ago, Jeep® pioneered the idea of a premium SUV with its revolutionary Wagoneer 4×4. Although the nameplate ran for decades, it eventually was retired as the Jeep® lineup continued to grow in other directions. Now, Jeep® is returning to its roots by revisiting this luxury sport utility vehicle and updating it for modern drivers.

At the beginning of September, Jeep® unveiled the Grand Wagoneer Concept, which exemplifies everything the adventure brand has in store with the revival of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. 

As Ralph Gilles, head of design for FCA, explained, “The Grand Wagoneer Concept is inspired by the original, but with a modern interpretation of luxury and freedom. We strived to create an elegant design with a timeless silhouette, featuring countless beautifully crafted details that come together to give it an undeniable presence.”

From its bold, upscale exterior to its sumptuous interior, this large, premium SUV is replete with first-class touches. The Jeep® Grand Wagoneer Concept features everything you’d expect from a contemporary, first-class SUV. It boasts an electric powertrain, a signature grille silhouetted by LED lights, 24-inch wheels with 3D-printed elements, customizable ambient cabin lighting, 3D lacewood inlay throughout, and the all-new Uconnect 5 system — just to name some highlights. It’s truly an impressive work of art and functionality.

We at Downtown Chrysler are thrilled for the return of the prestigious Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. They’ll be arriving at our dealership in 2021 and will be a welcome addition to the other superb SUVs we sell in Toronto, Ontario.

You will even get your very own zookeeper to educate you on the different animals.

The Royal Ontario Museum

When it comes to fun yet educational things to do, there are few places that can beat the Royal Ontario Museum. This sprawling museum has ample space to social distance, and is using time-based tickets to ensure that it’s easy to do so. You can spend the day walking through the museum to learn more about its current exhibits, which cover topics from dinosaurs to the First Nations of the Great Lakes. If you’re not comfortable heading to such a public place, you can see everything the museum has to offer online with its extensive online collections.

3 Tips for Sanitizing Your Vehicle

Sanitizing Your Vehicle | Toronto, ON

Sanitizing your vehicle is a great way to protect yourself and your passengers from the spread of viruses and other illnesses. Start with these three tips to enjoy improved cleanliness and peace of mind as you drive.

Wash frequently touched surfaces

Make sure you wash each of your vehicle’s high-touch areas. The climate controls, touch screens, steering wheel, shift knobs, lock buttons, interior and exterior door handles, and all other frequently touched surfaces should be wiped down with disinfecting wipes or an alcohol-based cleaner and microfibre cloth.

Be thorough

Clean all of your vehicle’s hard interior surfaces, including the dashboard, centre console, door panels, and windows. Even if an area hasn’t been touched, you or a passenger may have recently coughed or sneezed on it. You’ll also want to sanitize soft surfaces like seats, carpets, and headliners. Make sure you’re using appropriate, non-bleach-based products that won’t damage the upholstery.

Keep your vehicle clean

Once you finish your initial sanitization steps, prioritize keeping up with cleanliness. Keep disinfecting wipes in your vehicle and use them regularly on high-touch surfaces. It’s also a good idea to apply hand sanitizer before entering your vehicle and after getting out.

Still have questions about the best products or processes for sanitizing your vehicle? Get in touch with our service department here at Downtown Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Important Spring Maintenance Tips for Your Car

Spring Maintenance Tips | Toronto, ON

Snow is quickly becoming a thing of the past as we say goodbye to winter. As the temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to start thinking about getting your vehicle ready for spring. Here are some spring maintenance tips to keep in mind as you prepare for warmer weather.

Switch out your winter tires

Spring means less snow and ice. It also means that you no longer need the extra traction your winter tires provide. Bring your car in to Downtown Chrysler to get your winter tires switched out for all-season ones.

Give your vehicle a spring cleaning

Salt and winter grime build up over the course of the cold season, potentially leading to rust and other damage. Give your car a thorough cleaning both inside and out to get yourself ready for the spring — and don’t forget the undercarriage.

Check your fluids

Make sure your vehicle is up to date on its routine maintenance and check its vital fluids, including oil, coolant, and wiper fluid.

Get your brakes checked out

Winter road conditions can affect your braking system, so make sure you get it checked out as the weather warms up. That way, you can be confident that your vehicle will stop the way you need it to.

Put these steps on your to-do list for spring, and be sure to visit our top-notch service department here at Downtown Chrysler for all your vehicle’s maintenance needs.

You can now get a muscle car that’s perfect for winter. Fiat-Chrysler recently introduced the 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD model, which combines the performance you’ve come to expect from this muscle car with the all-weather driving confidence you need in Toronto.

“Most people think of Chargers and Challengers as high-performance muscle cars, which clearly they are, but they can also be four-season capable AWD performance cars,” said FCA executive Tim Kuniskis. “Only Dodge offers vehicles that combine practicality and all-weather driving confidence without sacrificing muscle car attitude.”

This first-ever all-wheel-drive Charger comes equipped with the brand’s award-winning 3.6-litre Pentastar® V6 engine, which generates an impressive 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. It also boasts a class-exclusive all-wheel-drive system with Vehicle Dynamics Control, an active transfer case, and front-axle disconnect.

On the exterior, the Charger GT AWD shows off with the model’s iconic low build, 19-inch aluminum wheels, a performance rear spoiler, and projector LED fog lamps.

Inside, the Charger GT AWD presents a performance steering wheel with paddle shifters, an 8.4-inch touch-screen display with the Uconnect® infotainment system, Houndstooth cloth high-bolstered performance seats, and a Dark Dub Plate instrument panel.
