The Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival of Butler, Pennsylvania has long been known as a celebration of all things Jeep. People come from all over, even Canada, to celebrate in the town that is the birthplace of the legendary vehicle. A couple of years ago, they claimed the Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Jeeps. There were classic Jeeps in the parade, as well as more modern incarnations. Unfortunately, the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival lost its crown to another group of fans at the Jeep Beach Festival in Daytona Beach, Florida. That festival lined up 1,846 Jeeps to snatch the title away. Did you really think that the group […]

The designers at Fiat Chrysler (FCA) were given a chance to go wild on a performance-centric design in the “Gran Turismo 6” video game. The official design from the SRT performance team is called the “SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo” and was in reply to an invitation from the video game franchise to automakers to design their own concepts. The SRT Tomahawk design is an ultra-aggressive hybrid supercar that rides low to the ground on huge wide-set tires. In a teaser video released by the FCA design team, the single-seat SRT Tomahawk is shown to feature angular flared fenders, exposed carbon-fiber body panels, and a familiar Dodge Viper-style hood […]
The Union of Concerned Scientists put together a list of the top technology trends they found at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. These are all of the fuel-saving strategies automakers are employing in order to adhere to tightening emission standards. Looking at this list, we at Coronet Dodge are amazed at the ingenuity and concern for the environment being demonstrated. TURBOCHARGING: As the research group notes, this isn’t the first instance the world has seen of turbocharging. Historically it was used to enhance performance in road and sports cars. Now, it is increasingly used “with a smaller engine to maintain vehicle performance while increasing fuel economy.” START-STOP: This technology […]
If you’re a fan of the Viper, we at Coronet Dodge have some great news. The new GTS and TA 2.0 Special Edition Models are now available. The GTS centers on sophistication while the TA 2.0 is clearly track-ready–so take your pick.

The 2015 Chrysler 300 was unveiled last week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, revealing a throwback style reminiscent of the vehicle’s 2005 design. Chrysler brand CEO and President Al Gardner recently said, “It’s going to come with a whole bunch of character and soul, and it’s going to take you back to the 2005 car,” and he wasn’t kidding. The 2015 300 has a bold, grated grille and an aggressive style that Chrysler hopes will bring back some of the customers that loved the 300 so much in 2005. And on the inside, there’s now a 7-inch full-color monitor display, one of the new perks for the 2015 model. […]
