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.

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.

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!

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.

Ram 1500 Rebel Black Debut
In 2015, the Ram 1500 Rebel hit the market. These performance pickups were designed to be used for effortless off-roading and to offer impressive capability no matter the terrain. This year in Detroit, at the North American International Auto Show, Ram introduced its latest addition to the Rebel family: the Ram 1500 Rebel Black. Find more information about the Ram 1500 Rebel Black.
Like its other Rebel siblings, the Rebel Black is built to handle off-road adventures with ease. Its 33-inch all terrain tires are capable of taking this pickup anywhere. Its smooth handling and rugged performance are made possible thanks in part to Blistein shocks and a standard air suspension.
The sturdy Ram 1500 Rebel Black makes a statement not only in capability but also in design. Signature black accents give the truck its name, and “RAM” is written proudly across the front end. Interior features like standard black heated seats and slate gray accent stitching add more style and comfort. Upgrade to black leather Katzkin seats for some extra sophistication and class.
Get the Rebel Black in two- or four-wheel drive, as well as with a 3.6-liter V6 or a 5.7-liter V8 engine good for up to 495 horsepower. No matter how you dress it up, this new addition will no doubt be a new favorite in the Ram 1500 Rebel family. Explore other Ram models.

Happy Thanksgiving from Gossett CJDR Fiat
Nearly half of all Americans travel at least 50 miles to attend a Thanksgiving gathering. If you’ll be hitting the road for a Thanksgiving road trip, here are a few tips to make it less stressful and hectic.
- Plan your travel time wisely. The long Thanksgiving weekend is one of the busiest travel times of the year, meaning more cars on the road. Plan to leave early in the morning so there is less traffic and so you can avoid drowsy drivers in the evening.
- Secure all cargo. Anything that isn’t properly secured in your car can become a projectile if you’re in an accident. Make sure all bags, food items, and other cargo is in the trunk and secured properly.
- Plan some in-car entertainment. If you’re travelling with kids, bring some activities to keep them entertained on the long drive, and they don’t all have to be electronic. Make sure the activities they choose aren’t too distracting for the driver.
- Don’t eat and drive. If nothing else, at least don’t stuff yourself with turkey and then drive. Turkey has high levels of sleep-inducing Tryptophan and the other carb-heavy Thanksgiving dishes won’t help either. Don’t hop in the car right after finishing your feast.
Are you planning on a road trip for Thanksgiving this year?
Current Chrysler Pacifica Available at Gossett CJDR Fiat
For decades, the idea of a self-driving car has only existed in science fiction. But, that fiction is quickly becoming reality with the help of Google and its fleet of autonomous vehicles. Recently, Google signed a deal with Chrysler to create of fleet of self-driving Pacifica minivans, and over a dozen were recently spotted in a parking garage in California.
The plug-in hybrid minivans were mounted with cameras and LIDAR sensors on the roofs. Looking at the pictures, you can see Google has made big strides in reducing the size of its equipment, especially the parts that get mounted on the roof. In addition, it looks like there are some sensors that are embedded into the front fenders.
These minivans were spotted right around the same time Google announced it is launching a new ride-sharing program focused on carpooling, and minivans sure are an ideal choice for carpooling. So, this could mean these self-driving Pacifica vans could be used for that program.
It is also interesting to note that Google chose the hybrid version of the Pacifica. When fully charged, it delivers up to 30 miles of all-electric range.
Here at Gossett Chrysler, we are interested to see how these self-driving minivans perform in real-world tests.
