Learn More About the Much-Anticipated Hurricane Powertrain!

Chrysler is the manufacturer that’s always on the cutting edge, from its state-of-the-art technology, to its innovative amenities. As a testament to its renowned brand, engineers have been working hard and diligently to produce a performance feature that is sure to exceed your every expectation: the all-new Chrysler Hurricane engine. We at Dick Scott Motor Mall and Dick Scott Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are excited for this new arrival, and we want to invite you to experience it for yourself as soon as it hits the market.

The Hurricane is a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine that is a rework of Chrysler’s current 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain, particularly the cylinder head, to deliver a better performance and an increased fuel economy. This aluminum block powertrain is said to produce nearly 300 horsepower, which is a vast improvement upon Chrysler’s current top-output Tigershark® machine that delivers just 184 horsepower. An engine of this size and power is uncommon, making the Hurricane truly a sight to behold and experience.

Chrysler engineers integrate several technologies into the Hurricane in order to provide this kind of impended hair-raising performance. For enhanced fuel economy, the Hurricane boasts Direct Fuel Injection, which results in a more complete combustion and cooler cylinder temperatures for a higher compression ratio in terms of efficiency and power. In addition, a belt starter generator for Stop/Start technology is also said to be outfitted, which helps preserve fuel by automatically turning the engine off when you come to a stop, and back on once your foot lifts off the brake pedal.

It is also speculated that the Chrysler Hurricane features lightweight aluminum blocks, which help reduce the overall weight of the engine. Likewise, its offset cranks diminish cylinder wall side loading that lowers its height, adding to this machine’s small-but-mighty makeup. Various amenities, like MultiAir® technology, a timing chain, cooled EGR, and a twin-scroll turbocharger, are also outfitted to work together to generate a worthwhile performance. The Hurricane is due to be paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and set to debut in the Jeep Wrangler.

With this innovative engine, Chrysler engineers are catering to what our customers look for most in a powertrain: an exhilarating high-output without the sacrifice of efficiency. Contact us at Dick Scott Motor Mall in Fowlerville, MI, or Dick Scott Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Plymouth, MI, to learn more about the Chrysler Hurricane engine today! You can give us a call at (877) 632-3308; we are always more than happy to assist with any questions you may have!

Family First with the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan

With school, sports, work and errands, just getting around can be a challenge. When you add in school projects, work projects, sports equipment and the occasional DIY project, everyone needs the flexibility of a minivan. The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan provides enough versatility to accomodate whatever combination of passengers and cargo you can dream up.

At Dick Scott Motor Mall in Fowlerville, we know there’s a reason that the Grand Caravan is the most versatile vehicle in its class1, thanks to its convenient storage spaces located throughout the vehicle. You’ll appareciate the available overhead bin in the front of the vehicle, as well as a driver’s storage area for items, such as sunglasses or your phone. When heading to a Detroit Tigers or Lions game, the Super Stow ‘n Go® system provides an additional 12 cubic ft. of “out of sight” storage space when the second- and third-rows aren’t folded down. The Super Stow ‘n Go® Seating and Storage System is a class-exclusive1 feature and gives you a wide array of options when you’re loading up passengers and cargo. With both the second- and third-rows folded down into the floor, you’ll have an incredible 143 cubic ft. of space at your disposal for those weekend trips to Lowes or Home Depot. It’s also amazing how many moving boxes you can fit into the back of a Dodge Grand Caravan, however, you might not want to share that bit of information!

If you’re driving the kids and all of their friends to soccer or baseball practice, the Grand Caravan has room for seven passengers to fit comfortably. To make sure everyone can settle in when you’re on I96, the 2016 Grand Caravan has an available Three-Zone Automatic Temperature Control. It allows the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers to all set individual climates for ideal comfort. The premium cloth interior is also available with power front seats and 2-way lumbar support to help you find the optimal driving position.

When you are looking for performance, the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan for sale in Fowlerville, MI, excels with an engine that offers both power and efficiency. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful engines in the class with the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 Flex-Fuel engine. It offers best-in-class1 283 horsepower and best-in-class1 260 lb.-ft. of torque. With its Flex-Fuel capability, you can use unleaded gasoline, E-852 fuel, or a mixture of the two to give you options when you’re at the fuel pump. Even with its immense power, the Grand Caravan still provides 25 MPG hwy3 to keep you away from gas stations along your daily work commute to Detroit. All in all the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is the perfect family vehicle that anyone and everyone can enjoy!

More serious parking security

Many people never use their parking / emergency brakes, which can put
a great deal of pressure on the little parking pawl, a part of the
automatic transmission which holds all three to five thousand pounds of a
modern car, truck, or SUV.
One approach to the problem is using electrically operated, electronically
controlled, automatic parking brakes (a control for one is shown below).
 Electric parking brakes work automatically, so
people who don’t normally use the parking brakes
have no choice.
They also fix the problem of owners who don’t apply
the brake enough to actually stop the car from moving
(especially with hand-operated parking brakes, and any
manually adjusted parking brakes that are neglected by
owners and dealers alike). This relieves pressure on the
parking pawl, and cuts the admittedly remote chance of
the car moving on a steep hill.

A new approach from a Chrysler patent goes after the problem of
over-working the parking pawl differently. It uses the computer to
calibrate the transmission’s parking lock, using computer-controlled
actuators that figure out exactly how far the pawl can be pushed in, so
it’s fully engaged. The full system is described here. (Thanks, WhiteRhino07).

The fate of Charger R/T AWD

In the past, Dodge has combined the Hemi engine with all wheel drive (AWD) for better launches and improved rain and snow handling in the Charger R/T AWD. Indeed, for 2014, even police cars were made available with the combination of Hemi and AWD. For 2015, however, AWD is being restricted to V6 cars.  This led to speculation about whether the issue was lack of space, drivetrain weakness, or scheduling — whether the V8/AWD combination was going to be available, but later.

Allpar’s Jim Choate contacted Ralph Gilles, SRT and motorsports chief, and asked for the reason. Mr. Gilles replied that the issue was a “very low take rate” — few customers chose the combination of V8 and all wheel drive. Mr. Gilles’ guess was that “most V8 lovers like a good powerslide once in a while,” adding that Dodgedoesn’t officially endorse such behavior.

So far, there has been no word about what the police can expect from the 2015 Dodge Charger. Most likely, the V6/AWD combination will be available to compete with Ford’s AWD cute-utes, and the five-speed automatic will be dropped; through 2014, the five-speed was the sole transmission available for police cars, even with the V6. Reliable source oh2o suggested that the police might even be able to get a Hemi AWD combination.
