Make Sure You Connect with Chrysler Uconnect

Lately, the car industry has been focusing on a competition of seeing which carmaker can provide consumers with the best technology. Chrysler has officially joined this competition with its first foray into infotainment systems—the Chrysler Uconnect. With this new system, drivers and passengers alike will find it easy to stay connected while they are on the road.

Chrysler Uconnect
Chrysler Uconnect lets you do such functions as selecting favorite artists and music.

While many carmakers offer a version of Uconnect, there is one aspect to Chrysler’s new system that allows you to choose the system that suits your individual needs. The system offers a variety of features, including turn-by-turn directions through Uconnect Navigation, hands free phone calls, and Internet radio streaming. Other features include the ability to control it all with your voice, making it easy to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

Chrysler Uconnect also offers SiriusXM Radio and Sirius XM Travel Link and Traffic, which make commuting easier than ever—it can even help you look up local movie theater listings!

All these features and more will be available with the 2015 Chrysler Group vehicle lineup, so make sure you make it out to Corwin Dodge this fall to see what our Uconnect system has to offer!

Two-Way Split Tailgate from RAM

In case you haven’t heard the news, Ram Trucks are becoming ever-more popular among drivers. The Ram 1500 has recently been named as Truck of the Year for the second consecutive year, which has never been done before. Well, now they are patenting something that seems a bit radical, but will definitely be awesome! The two-way split tailgate from Ram is currently underway, and will help with a lot of functions.

Two-Way Split Tailgate
Just imagine this tailgate with a split down the middle and you will get an idea of what is to come.

Everybody should be familiar with how tailgates on trucks fold down to help with laborious tasks. Ok, now imagine if it could do that, as well as opening from the middle like double doors, and each “door” of the tailgate being able to fold out or down on its own as well.

Having the capabilities mentioned above, the tailgate will make it easier for loading and unloading cargo and will be able to support different shapes and sizes. Sometime you try to load a bed into a truck, but is just a few inches too big to close the tailgate. This means that you have to leave your tailgate down just for those few inches. Well, with the two-way split tailgate from Ram, you can fold one down, while the other stays up and supports other cargo. Perfect!

Bad news is that we don’t know when we can first expect that appearance of this new design in Ram trucks. In fact, we don’t even have all the information on their plans. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for any more information about this tailgate style, and we here at Corwin Dodge Ram will do the same.
