Major recall has to do with electrical issues

Chrysler has announced a big recall covering 2014 Jeep grand Cherokee SUVs. The recall covers vehicles all around the world with 132,000 of the Grand Cherokee SUVs covered. The recall has to do with reports of random morning light illumination and instrument cluster blackouts.

Chrysler says that the events occur infrequently and are apparently resolved by turning the ignition on and off. The issue affecting the instrument cluster is apparently in the vehicles ABS brake module. Chrysler plans to replace the module at no cost.

Chrysler also plans to recall on 10800 2014 RAM trucks to update software that controls the instrument cluster illumination. Most of the trucks are still reportedly in dealer hands.

Kids give ’40s police detective car a new life

Oct 24 2014 6:42pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

If this car could talk, it would have stories to tell that would make your hair stand on end. It’s carried suspected murderers, kidnappers and robbers of all types and witnesses to their crimes. The coal-black 1947 Dodge sedan did a decade of service as a Vancouver police detective car, and the giveaway for this car’s original use is the lack of window cranks and inside door-opener handles in the rear passenger compartment. Most of the passengers who would ride ba ...

Chrysler Gives 2015 200S a Much-Needed Mopar Upgrade for SEMA

Oct 24 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The 2015 Chrysler 200 is strikingly handsome—particularly for its price range—but the midsize sedan needs something more distinctive to stand out in its crowded segment. Ahead of next month’s blowout SEMA show, we got a peek at the juiced-up 200S that Chrysler will display at the Vegas extravaganza. Now this is more like it.Most notable is the car’s improved stance. Dropped down on a Mopar coilover kit, the sedan looks decidedly more sinister. Chrysler says the dropped suspension wil ...

Dodge Dart R/T Concept: The High-Performance Compact Dodge Needs to Build

Oct 24 2014 5:14pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Dodge has a fascinating history of building hot compacts, one prominent example being the Omni GLHS by Shelby, while the Caliber SRT-4 marked a low point in terms of style and refinement. For the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas, the carmaker has taken its sensible Dart and tweaked it significantly to make it digestible to more discerning enthusiasts. Painted in bright orange with matte black as a contrast color, and fitted with a ...

Oct 24 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

As Chrysler’s in-house performance-parts brand, Mopar has historically gone large at the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas. This year is proving to be no different, with muscle cars, trucks, and compacts galore showcasing wares from the division’s extensive parts and accessories catalog. Of Ram-style note are the ProMaster Hospitality Van and the Ram 2500 Outdoorsman pickup. The upfitted ProMaster has been converted into what Mopar calls a “mobile lounge” featuring a refrigerat ...

Dodge Challenger T/A Concept Brings Old-School Musclecar Flair to SEMA

Oct 24 2014 4:57pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Dodge’s beastly Challenger has always been about raw, retro muscle-car style, and the company’s eye-searing Sublime Green–painted Challenger T/A concept takes that formula and cranks it up to 11. Whipped up to tickle show-goers at the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas, this special Challenger channels the spirit of racing driver Sam Posey’s original no. 77 Challenger T/A, a track animal that defined ’70s-era muscle-car racing. Sure, the matte black–over–lime green color scheme ma ...

Ram Needs To Make This 'Swamp Thing Green' Color A Real Option

Chrysler kept their Ram 2500 for SEMA pretty conservative, but I'm completely in love with the color. It's kind of a perfect medium between looking tough and subtle, with a hint of military utilitarianism. Can't imagine a modern truck this ...
