Thirty years is definitely a long time, especially for a car manufacture that has been making one of the best minivans on the market. This year marks the thirtieth anniversary for the Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan. Being the leaders of their class, it’s no wonder why the iconic minivans have continued to provide the best value among others in its class. To help celebrate their 30th year, Chrysler has announced that there will be special anniversary editions of both vehicles available to the public. Outside of other features, both vehicles will have specially designed trims and accents found throughout the vehicle to differentiate itself from the other models available. For anyone who is interested in the special edition minivans, please contact us at Ken Garff Dodge Headquarters today.
Yes, it is the year of the dragon…for Jeep that is. After a concept model of the Jeep Wrangler which featured an elaborate dragon designed debuted at this years Shanghai Auto show, the classic off-roader got a lot more attention than they expected. Many people loved the detail that was brought to the iconic four wheeler to the point where Jeep thought it was necessary to put the vehicle into limited production. Finally offered in the US, the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Dragon edition is outfitted with gold trims throughout the wheels and grille, in addition to a dragon decal that wraps itself around the front of the vehicle. There are some other added features to the vehicle which make it unique, but anyone serious about getting this vehicle should act fast as there will be a limited number of them.

Chrysler has announced that it is planning for some of its cars and trucks to run on a different kind of gas by 2017.
The automaker says it will introduce compressed-natural-gas powered vehicles by 2017. The first vehicle is expected to be a Dodge Ram pickup.
Italian automaker Fiat, which owns 30 percent of Chrysler and plans to increase the holding to 51 percent, has engines using compressed natural gas in Europe. Chrysler executives have explored bringing that Fiat technology to the U.S. since the Fiat alliance was formed in 2009.
Honda Motor Co. is the only automaker currently selling cars with compressed natural gas engines to retail customers in the U.S. GM and Ford sell CNG vehicles into corporate and government fleets. Buses in many cities and municipalities, as well as around airports and national parks, also run on CNG.
There are some estimates that if the commercial truck fleet could be largely converted to natural gas over ten years, the decline in demand for gasoline would be enough to get the U.S. off Middle East oil entirely.
