FCA's biggest surprise: hybrid Jeep

FCA's biggest surprise: hybrid Jeep-jp018_127wr7lug62f9d4jksknsfl2uihjc39-jpg

The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler makes its grand debut this week in LA and the biggest news is the addition of a diesel engine option as well as a turbocharged gas-electric 4-cylinder – making the new 2018 Wrangler the first ever Jeep hybrid.

Thanks to spy shots and the official images released earlier this month at SEMA, we knew what to expect of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler interior and exterior appearance, so with this week’s debut in LA, there aren’t many surprises in terms of styling. On the other hand, the drivetrain information is chock full of new features and the most notable is the turbocharged 2.0L eTorque mild hybrid drivetrain. This first-ever hybrid option from the Jeep brand is joined by the 3.0L EcoDiesel and the same 3.6L Pentastar V6 that is featured in the current models, all of which are mated to the new-to-the-Wrangler 8-speed automatic transmission.

The 1st Jeep Hybrid
We knew that FCA have been working on a new turbocharged 2.0L engine and it was expected to be introduced in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. The insider reports proved to be true, as the new turbo-4 is one of the two gasoline engines offered in the all-new SUV, but what we didn’t expect is that the new turbo motor would come with a standard mild hybrid assist system called eTorque.

Dodge Hellcat Challenger, Charger Subject to Deep Discounts Right Now

Dodge Hellcat Challenger, Charger Subject to Deep Discounts Right Now-2017_hellcat_challenger_go_mango-jpg

If you have been dreaming of buying a Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger with the 707hp Hellcat Hemi, now could be the time for you to score your supercharged muscle car, as both used and new-old-stock prices have gotten to their lowest points since these Mopar muscle cars were released for 2015.

As a Hellcat owner, I am an active participant in the online community and through the social media networks, I often see people posting about smokin’ deals on Hellcat Challengers and Chargers. Believe it or not, as well as the Hellcat cars have sold over the past 3 years, there are still some new 2016 models sitting at dealerships around the country. Of course, there are still 2017 models at dealers as well and over the past few months, the 2018 models have begun reaching showrooms as well. Discounts could be also due to October 2017 declining sales.

With 2018 models arriving, dealers want to get rid of the 2017s and they really want to get rid of any 2016s, and that desire to move these “older” models leads to deep discounts. For example, some dealerships are advertising well-appointed 2016 Hellcat Challengers online for as low as the $54k range, which is $10-15k less than MSRP (depending on the options and such). It does seem that the 2016 Challengers are more readily available, but there are still come 2016 Hellcat Chargers available at new car dealerships and while there seem to be smaller discounts on the sedans, there are dealers right now advertising discounts of $5,000 and up.

Used Prices Dropping
Over the course of the past year, it seemed as though most used Hellcat Challengers and Chargers being advertised for sale online were listed very near their MSRP. In many cases, people were still asking – and getting – around $65k for a car that cost a touch over $70k when new, but that has changed over the past few months.

As the 2016, 2017 and 2018 models are all on the same lots and dealers have slashed 2016 pricing well into the $50k range, the used car market has been pushed down into the low-50s and high-40s. Figure that if you can buy a new 2016 Hellcat Challenger or Charger with a dozen miles for $55,000 you aren’t going to consider paying mid-50s for a similar car with 10,000 miles. As a result, used prices have been pushed down into the $40k range, so if you are interested in a used Hellcat, those prices have dropped to all-time lows as well.
