A number of Fiat-Chrysler models recently earned awards from CarGurus for being the best used cars on the market. This annual honor is given to the vehicles that come with the best pricing, durability, features, and customer satisfaction in the industry—all while being pre-owned. The Best Used Car awards were given to the Dodge Charger, Dart, Jeep Wrangler, and Ram 1500 for a number of model years.
According to FCA, the Ram 1500 scored the highest among the four models listed, winning the full-size trucks segment by a long shot. Any 2011 to 2017 Ram 1500 model that is used comes with an athletic build and impressive durability—something most truck owners are looking for. Above all else, you tend to get the most bang for your buck when you choose a used Ram 1500 from these model years.
“We are very impressed by FCA, which collected first place in four categories and a total of seven CarGurus Best Used Car awards,” said Amy Mueller, VP of Communications for CarGurus. “It’s clear these award-winning models deliver more than just great long-term value to owners, but also tremendous enjoyment to a wide variety of drivers.”
Only certain vehicles and brands were eligible. For instance, nominees were only those available in the US, and the entire generation was taken into consideration. The 2011 to 2017 Ram 1500 is generally considered the fourth generation of that model, for example. In summary, according to CarGurus, if you want the best used cars on the market, stop by a Fiat-Chrysler dealership like Gossett CDJR Fiat today.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is not your average hybrid-electric vehicle, nor your average minivan. This model combines a series of qualities you might not expect to find together: an eco-friendly powertrain and exceptional passenger and storage space. Let’s face it, most of the hybrids on the market are compact cars that won’t necessarily fit a whole family. The Pacifica Hybrid, on the other hand, is rethinking the hybrid segment.
According to Forbes, one of the most distinguishing features of the new Pacifica Hybrid design is that it looks exactly like any other model you’d drive. No special buttons. No clunky exterior.
“Climb behind the wheel of this minivan,” says Forbes reviewer Sam Abuselsamid, “and you’ll be hard-pressed to distinguish it from the conventional drive version.” While the Pacifica does have several technologies like regenerative braking and a high-capacity battery system, it drives like an ordinary gas vehicle.
One exception to the Pacifica Hybrid is that it has state-of-the-art systems hidden under the hood that get up to 84 MPGe* when properly equipped. That gives you a total of 566 miles in driving range, with up to 33 miles in pure electric driving—perfect for quick trips. You can fully recharge in as little as two hours when equipped with a 240-volt Level II charger, which is more than enough range and charge time for the average driver. Plus, the battery even comes with a 10-Year/150,000-mile Limited Warranty.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid may look like a sporty new multi-purpose vehicle, but under the hood is one of the most advanced powertrains on the market. This is the first hybrid minivan to be introduced, making it a truly revolutionary model. Stop by Gossett CDJR Fiat to learn more about the 2017 Chrysler Pacific Hybrid.
When you’re looking for a minivan, you’re looking for practicality. You need something that’s going to anticipate your every need and go beyond expectations. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has proven itself as capable of just that. With flexible seating, tools like a built-in vacuum cleaner, and helpful driver-assist technologies, it’s the best tool in family travel.
And now it just got better. The new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the first plug-in hybrid minivan, and adds outstanding efficiency to the long list of reasons why this minivan is the best on the market. It runs for 33 miles on electric charge alone before switching to its 3.6-liter V6 engine, and boasts up to an 84 MPGe*. That means that with the Pacifica Hybrid you’ll get some of the most exceptional mileage in the minivan segment. The hybrid engine of the Pacifica Hybrid works wonders to improve in-town mileage, making it ideal for local carpooling, errand-running, and all-around family travel.
There’s no hiding the fact that the versatile Chrysler Pacifica, Hybrid or not, is our favorite minivan. It just does too much to make family travel smooth sailing to prefer anything else over it. Whether you’re interested in learning more about the hybrid edition or checking out more of the thoughtful features in the base model, we encourage you to stop by Gossett CDJR Fiat today to test drive the Chrysler Pacifica.

When two vehicle brands work together, the automobile industry never knows quite what it’s in for. Imagine taking the off-roading expertise that the Jeep lineup has to offer and combining that with the muscle car performance that Dodge lives for. With those powers combined, you’d have one heck of an SUV, one that could rev some off-the-charts horsepower while still making its way through rough terrain.
If that sounds appealing to you, then we have great news. The all-new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk promises that very wicked combination of power and comfort. Offering the same Grand Cherokee passenger-focused interior filled with comforts and amenities, the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has something that sets it apart from the rest of the Jeep SUV lineup— its engine. The Trackhawk is powered with the Dodge supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 Hellcat engine, giving this Grand Cherokee 707 horsepower.
In the Trackhawk, passengers can get from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds. Handling is reminiscent of a muscle car, featuring designs like improved front suspension, a new Brembo braking system, and a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
We look forward to getting the new 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk onto our lot at Gossett CDJR Fiat. We’re sure that this pumped up SUV will offer a unique combination of speed, performance, and comfort that’s sure to win over some fans.
If you want an off-road truck with some serious heavy-duty capabilities, the only option is the 2017 Ram Power Wagon. Unlike other off-road oriented trucks, the Power Wagon is the only one based off of a heavy-duty truck. The Power Wagon starts with a Ram 2500 and adds every part you could ever need for an intense off-road adventure.
The Power Wagon is equipped with an upgraded suspension with Bilstein monotube shocks, which raises it more than two inches higher than a standard Ram 2500. The Power Wagon rides on 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. In addition, it comes standard a 12,000-pound Warn electric winch, something that isn’t included on most other trucks. This handy tool will help you, or someone else, if you ever get stuck.
For 2017, the Power Wagon comes with new styling, including a grille similar to the Ram 1500 Rebel. Buyers can also opt for an available two-tone graphics package that adds body stripes and “Power Wagon” lettering.
To make the Power Wagon capable off-road, it comes with a disconnecting sway bar. When disengaged, this allows the axles to move up and down, letting the Power Wagon easily climb over rocks and uneven surfaces. When you hit pavement again, simple push a button, and it reengages.
If you dream of off-road adventures, order your 2017 Ram Power Wagon at Gossett Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat today.
If you’re looking for luxury in fully-capable form, then you should choose the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. For 2017, this model gets a few updates. The updated Grand Cherokee Summit comes with revised front end styling and improved interior options.
Buyers can choose from among three engines: the standard 3.6-liter V6 with 295 horsepower, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 390 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 (late availability) with 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. All engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and can be had with either rear- or four-wheel drive.
Step inside, and that is where the biggest changes are. Buyers can opt for a luxurious leather-wrapped cabin. This package is available in either Ski Gray or Indigo and covers the door panels and dashboard in Nappa leather and the seating surfaces in Laguna leather.
Safety-wise, the Grand Cherokee Summit has you covered with available advanced features, including adaptive cruise control, automatic parking, blind-spot detection, lane departure warning, and a forward collision warning.

The Jeep Wrangler is already known as one of the most capable off-road SUVs to venture towards the path less traveled. Now the brand is releasing what many are calling its most capable model of all time. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is scheduled to arrive at dealerships for the 2018 model year.
The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Recon, as it’s officially called, has seen numerous styling changes that are functional as well as cosmetic. For example, the new Wrangler Rubicon comes stocked with 32-inch BFGoodrich mud terrain tires, but can fit 35-inch tires without making any changes.
While Wrangler owners could modify their Jeep with ease, the Wrangler Rubicon is the first factory-made model that doesn’t leave room for any aftermarket improvements. The Wrangler Rubicon was born of a standard model with an upgraded front axle, trimmed steel rails, and taller springs.
The end result is a massive off-road monster designed to dominant paved roads and conquer even the toughest terrain nature has to offer. The model rests on 17-inch grey alloy wheels and boasts a number of black and red styling cues. The most capable model ever will be available in seven different colors and starts at just over $40,000.
We here at Gossett CDJR Fiat are pumped for the new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon!
U.S. News & World Report have officially named the “Best Sports Car for the Money” and, to no one’s surprise, the Fiat 124 Spider took the prestigious award. While last year’s winner, the Mazda MX-5 Miata, and Fiat 124 Spider were jointly developed, the 124 Spider’s exceptional styling and performance gave it an edge. In addition to the award, U.S. News & World Report also provided the Fiat 124 Spider review that potential drivers should peruse before making their decision.
2017 Fiat 124 Spider
In addition to the award, U.S. News & World Report also provided the Fiat 124 Spider review that potential drivers should peruse before making their decision.
The new Fiat 124 Spider is all-new for the 2017 model year with sleeker styling, snappier performance, and a premium interior. Like one would expect from a sports car, the athletic handling is incredibly responsive while the supportive seats keep drivers comfortable on the road.
The latest model boasts a standard 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 164 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque while earning an EPA-estimated 26 city/35 hwy mpg*.
The convertible top is quick to fold and provides a quick way to get some fresh air on the open road. The upscale feel, thanks in part to the model’s Italian heritage, makes the new 124 Spider one of the highest-ranked cars in its class.
We here at Gossett CDJR Fiat can’t help but be blown away by the new Fiat 124 Spider!
*Manufacturer estimated MPG with 1.4-liter turbo engine and six-speed manual transmission. Actual mileage may vary. EPA estimates not currently available.
Jeep Wagoneer is Making a Comeback
There are certain vehicles that have left their mark on the American subconscious. These are vehicles that are associated with a particular time and era, like the Volkswagen Bus with the 1960s, or the Jeep Wagoneer with the 1980s. These nostalgic associations are so strong that they give these vehicles a timeless charm. See what other Jeep models are being unveiled.
Turquoise Jeep Wagoneer
This is why it’s so exciting to hear that the Jeep Wagoneer is making a comeback in the near future. The Jeep Wagoneer began as one of the first luxury 4×4 vehicles. It had an impressive new automatic transmission plus front end suspension, not to mention its wood-grained side panels. The new Jeep Wagoneer—set to make an appearance as early as 2019—will likely be as luxurious as any SUV on today’s market. The Jeep Wagoneer will take its place at the top of the Jeep lineup. Explore our vast selection of pre-owned Jeep inventory.
The production of the new Jeep Wagoneer is expected to occur at one of two factories in Michigan and Ohio. Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is poised to invest $1 billion into these factories in order to modernize them and prepare them for the upcoming production of the Jeep Wagoneer as well as some additional vehicles. Will the new Wagoneer be American-made and as capable as any other Jeep vehicle? No doubt. Will it have the wood paneling? It’s too early to tell, but one can only hope.
