2018 Dodge Ram Harvest Edition

New pickup offers first special farm package

Vince Bodiford

Dodge has introduced a new Ram pickup, The Ram Harvest Edition, which is the first agricultural market-specific truck and is visually distinguished by two new colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue. Like those tractors, pickups are the workhorse of the ag industry.

“The Ram Harvest Edition marks the first time that Ram dealers will be able to stock trucks that exactly match the colors of two of the most popular lines of farm equipment in the nation,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep & Ram Brands. “Farmers have been asking for these colors, and Ram is proud to be the first in the industry to be able to offer them. The Ram Harvest Edition truck will allow farm families to get their work done while proudly showing their agricultural brand loyalty.”

The Harvest Edition is available across the Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 lineup, in all four-door Quad, Crew and Mega Cab configurations, all box lengths and all powertrains, including 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 and 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.

Harvest Edition trucks offer features that are designed to work. Among them, a ride-height increase of one inch and aggressive on/off-road tires on Ram 1500 Harvest Edition trucks are designed to help owners comfortably and confidently navigate rough farm roads and pastures.

Also included in the farm-life essentials are black tubular side steps, a durable spray-in bedliner, fold-out bumper step and mud flaps, rubber floor mats, skid plates and tow hooks (4×4) and heated seats. Ram Heavy Duty models also come with on/off-road tires and add a cargo-view camera.

Because Ram knows farmers are tech savvy, the Harvest Edition comes standard with an 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen radio with navigation, 4G Wifi, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, which gives buyers seamless connectivity, fingertip access to smartphone map mirroring, and up-to-the minute weather maps and forecasts customizable to any location in the nation.

The Harvest Edition features a premium exterior appearance packed with bright highlights, including a chrome “Wave Mesh” luxury cross-hair grille, bright front and rear bumpers, 17-inch chrome wheels (1500 models, 18-inch polished aluminum on Heavy Duty models), chrome mirrors, chrome door handles and chrome-tipped dual exhausts (V-8 1500 models).

The Harvest package also includes body-color (or Bright Silver) wheel flares and upper facia (1500). In addition to Case Red and New Holland Blue, Harvest Edition Ram trucks are also available in Bright White and Brilliant Black. Monotone and two-tone with Bright Silver color schemes are available.

Ram 1500 Harvest Edition MSRP starts at $39,910, plus $1,395 destination charge. Ram Heavy Duty models start at $46,235.

Ram Harvest Edition trucks were unveiled today at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, and go on sale in the third quarter of 2017.

The Ram Certified Agriculture Dealership program equips dealers to properly address the needs of farmers and ranchers in their local communities. Monroe Dodge in Monroe is the first dealership to be certified in Michigan, and one of fewer than 200 in the nation.

Ralph Mahalak Jr. of the Monroe dealership said the program educated them more on serving that industry. He said “agriculture is meaningful to many truck customers and through the Ram Certified Agriculture Dealership program, Monroe Dodge extends its commitment to the local agricultural community by equipping us to serve local farmers and ranchers.”

Certified dealers like Monroe Dodge help farmers and ranchers get the right Ram light-duty, heavy-duty and commercial trucks for their needs and help them take advantage of incentives and bonus offers, including a farm-specific package worth more than $5,300.

2017 Dodge Challenger(1200)

2017 Dodge Challenger T/A

“An Automotive Love Affair”

By Joseph Mavilia

Overview:

This is the 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A (which stands for Trans-Am which was an SCCA racing series from the 1970’s). To me, and I suspect for many of you, it represents the ‘golden age of muscle cars’. And in the spirit of those days and the Chrysler struggle to stay alive I want to repeat a little history of the company that points to the character of the human experience that should always be remembered.

During the years that Chrysler cars and trucks (Ram) were near bankruptcy a great leader was needed and Lee Iacocca stepped up to the plate to help save the failing company.

Lee Iacocca

Then the subsequent purchase by German Giant Daimler Mercedes Benz was just what the doctor ordered in making further changes that were needed and have given vitality to a company that had been a cornerstone of the auto industry.

Today the Big 3, GM, Ford and Chrysler, are not as important in the world as it was from the beginning to the mid-20th Century. It was then that the market began to shift to Asia and even Europe grew as well as consumers began to accept foreign products. Japanese products, early on, were junk. (The turnaround began in the early 1960s.) Demand and acceptance of foreign cars caused the shift away from cars ‘made in America’ and foreign cars became a movement.

Acceptance was fueled by growing costs to produce in America. Even discouraging import taxes couldn’t shake the resolve of the Japanese or deter Americans from purchasing foreign. US manufacturing labor costs were not competitive and the union workers gave the advantage to the Japanese car makers. So, I, and a huge number of ‘otherwise’ patriot Americans, were romanced by lower prices and better fuel economy.

Clearly it was the high cost then and now that give the advantage to the efficient. Now, even Japanese cars are often made in other countries as their own labor costs can be beat in Mexico, China and Korea. Both America and Japan have done what comes naturally in economics. They go elsewhere for reasonable labor cost. Result – Detroit has turned into one big Slum.

As friend Richard reminds me, “All error is self-correcting”. . . or “It is costly wisdom that’s bought by experience and experience is the name everyone gives their mistakes”. American car makers were king no more and had to compete, step up to rising gas prices by improving fuel economy and yes shuffle assembly to China and Europe. We’re back, but the cost has been huge to American companies and American Jobs. And yes Union’s played a part in that which was the undoing of all the good Union’s did for workers at the turn of the 20th century.

General Information:

It is assembled in Brampton, Ontario, Canada Parts – US/Canadian 60%, Mexico 29%; Engine – Mexico and Transmission – USA; Classification is Midsize; Cars from Dodge: Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey and Viper.

Handling & Performance:

A 5.7 liter 372 horsepower V8 HEMI (High Energy Metals, Inc. or HEMIspherical combustion chambers in the engine) MDS (Multi Displacement System which shuts down 4 of the 8 cylinders to conserve fuel) VVT (for Variable Valve Timing) speaks volumes to car guys, but in short it is an exciting power plant that takes us back to the Muscle car days of the mid-20th Century. Those were happy days but the roar of the engines of the day also excited the passions of youth.

Today it has the same effect on the senses of sight and sound and touch as you press the pedal to the metal. The combination excites the senses in a rather magical way with a smooth acceleration and solid ride. You gotta love it.

Styling:

Muscle Car and Retro in the best sense of the words. Now, this is my Idea of going GREEN.

Fit and Finish:

This isn’t the Chrysler products your grandparents drove. It is even better and truly world class.

Cost:

Well, this is a relative value. But it is competitive in today’s world.

Conveniences and comfort:

Consumer Recommendation:

If you are adventuresome or simply want to revisit your youth this may just be the car for you. When I was in that bygone time zone I had a love affair with a 28 Ford model A Sedan – Corvette powered. This Challenger ride tickled my memory and I smiled.

My sedan was featured in the June 1956 issue of Hot Rod Magazine.

Recognized Competition:

Dodge Challenger $41,000, Chevrolet Camaro $42,000, Ford Mustang $38,000, Honda Accord $35,000.

Good News:

Excitement is not for everyone which is what you get. It is a spectacular ride as you flashback half a century to the glory days of Muscle cars. It passed with flying colors on the mountain road course. Fabulous!

Bad News:

It is only green in color – it is after all a Muscle Car. 2-door inconvenience if you need to carry more than 2 people.

Standard Equipment:

5.7 liter 392 HP V8 HEMI MDS VVT engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, front, side, side curtain front and rear airbags, active exhaust, sport suspension, sport mode, performance brakes, rain brake support, ready alert braking, stability control, traction control, power steering, hill start assist, tire pressure monitoring, keyless enter and go, sentry key theft deterrent system, 5” touchscreen display, 6 – speakers, media hub for SDE, USB and Aux ports.

Note: although we start with this equipment for under $33,000 you will need to consider all the embellishing features / equipment that can take this car up by $10,000.

General Information:

It is assembled in Toluca, Mexico Parts – US/Canadian 27%, Mexico 62%; Engine and Transmission – USA; Classification is Small SUV; Cars from Dodge: Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey and Viper.

Handling & Performance:

VVT (for Variable Valve Timing) has been around for a long time and found its way into engine design first in Europe and then Asia. The US car makers we the holdouts for some strange reason. Buy now they have adopted this great engine design.

The principle is simple while complex at the same time. In internal combustion engines, variable valve timing (VVT) is the process of altering the timing of a valve lift event, and is often used to improve performance. These links will give videos for further explanation if interested.

Styling:

Traditional in today’s world.

Fit and Finish:

As mentioned above, it has been a marvel of improvement in the years following Lee Iacocca saving Chrysler from the trash bin. It was saved and Lee’s work made a bridge to the future and resulted in Daimler Mercedes Benz acquiring control. That led to huge changes. The product was transformed for the good and continues to improve with the advent of the purchase by Fiat. I Believe Fiat will take the product to the next level and I suppose it only goes to show you two heads are better than one, even if they are both cabbage. In any case I have gone from a skeptic of Chrysler to an enthusiastic supporter of the brand.

Cost:

There is no question that free enterprise delivers great value in any product. Today cars have never been cheaper. Hard to believe in one sense, $$$$$, relative to the increase in wages virtually all consumables are easily obtainable by all who want them.

Conveniences and comfort:

Standard models bring more than just basic features but priced in this class it doesn’t include my favorites such as all the driver assists becoming more common as the years pass. Lane assist and the other warning sensors usually accompanying smart cruise and other crash avoidance features for blind spot and cross traffic sensors. Consumers are beginning to expect such features in the $35 – 40,000 price range.

Consumer Recommendations:

The group here are all nice cars but the South Korean cars have captured my attention in recent years, particularly because I’m personally acquainted with their production process up close and personal, by visiting their production facilities. The character of the people make a difference to me as well. Perhaps other manufacturers will invite we journalists to get to know them better. Economics and government play a huge role in how a people are respected and respect themselves.

For example, in the cases like North and South Korea, North and South Vietnam, East and West Berlin as true in most all Eastern Europe and Western Europe. It gives you pause to reflect on how freedom changes the entire culture of any peoples. I guess you can’t appreciate good completely until you experience bad and can contrast the two.

Recognized Competition:

Dodge Journey $35,000, Chevrolet Traverse $35,000, Ford Explorer $35,000, GMC Acadia $42,000, Dodge Durango $41,000, Hyundai Santa Fe $38,000, Jeep Grand Cherokee $41,000, Kia Sorento $36,000.

Good News:

Affordable SUV versatility, smart fold away seats, a comfortable solid ride.

Bad News:

Nothing negative jumps out at me.

Standard Equipment:

3.6 liter V6 VVT Engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, front, side and side curtain airbags all rows, remote entry and keyless start, security alarm, stability control, 4-wheel ABS disc brakes, traction control, Sirius XM satellite radio, 8.4” touchscreen display, 3-zone climate control air conditioning, heated steering wheel and front seats, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, power 6-way driver and fold flat passenger seat, passenger in-seat storage, second row in floor storage bins, 19” aluminum wheels, fog lights, power heated mirrors with manual fold away.

2016 Dodge Durango Limited Brass Monkey AWD (1168)

Overview:
This is the 2016 Dodge Durango Limited Brass Monkey AWD.  It came just in time to be available to transport a group of visiting guests. But it made me realize that most people don’t have the availability of every size vehicle for the occasion. I believe most of us make our choice that best fits our needs, instinctively. Surely this Durango would be fantastic for a large family, up to 7, in spite of the fuel consumption numbers. But all things considered 25 highway mpg is pretty good for its versatility.   

General Information: It is assembled in Detroit, MI. Parts – US/Canadian 66%, Mexico 18%; Engine – Mexico & Transmission – USA; Classification is Standard SUV; Cars from Dodge: Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey and Viper.

Handling & Performance:

This Durango surprised me while it handled the mountain Crest Test course with exceptional ease. I kept looking at my speed handling the sharp curves and steep climbs. It is especially good for a vehicle of this size.

Styling:

The Brass Monkey appearance package adds 20” Burnished Bronze wheels (thus Brass Monkey wheels), a gloss black grille with an exterior badge, body color door handles, exterior mirrors, front fascia, rear fascia, sills and wheel flares.

Fit and Finish:

Very good.

Cost:

The cost is relative to your available budget constraints, of course, but for me many of the features that I would want would add a few thousand to the base price of $39,500. Features such as Blind Spot and cross traffic detection and navigation I tend to use.

Conveniences and comfort:

I like the engine start stop technology so the engine will automatically limit idling when it is motionless. Another that I appreciate is the park sense back-up park assist with stop feature so you are less likely to bump into walls etc. It will apply the brakes when it senses an object in the way. Very useful things.

Consumer Recommendation:

If you need a large family van, this AWD SUV is a great all around versatile option. If budget doesn’t allow this option and you are in need of a ‘soccer mom’ vehicle and you don’t need off-road capability a van would be a better selection (in my view).

Recognized Competition:

Dodge Durango Ltd  $41,000, Ford Flex $41,000, Kia Sorento $44,000, Jeep Grand Cherokee $41,000, Honda Pilot $40,000, Mazda CX 9 $43,000, Nissan Murano $45,000, Buick Enclave $47,000, Ford Edge $41,000. Note: all are 7 seater except Jeep, Nissan and Ford Edge that are 5 seat and the Buick Enclave is an 8 seater. 

Good News:

7-seating capable, decent fuel economy in class that is competitive with others in this segment. 

Bad News:

A bit pricey.

Standard Equipment:

3.6 liter V6 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, , rotary shift knob, paddle shifters on wheel, selectable steering mode, electric power steering, rear back up camera, keyless and go push button start with remote start, park sense rear park assist with stop, front, side, and side curtain air bags, driver knee airbag, leather trimmed seating, LATCH rear child seat anchor system.

2016 Dodge Charger SXT RWD Blacktop (1144)

Overview:

This is the 2016 Dodge Charger SXT Rear Wheel Drive Blacktop 4-door sedan.

Mike Mavilia has the same model as I’m reviewing so I asked him to give his take on his own Dodge Charger. He will have a Video link photo on the website version of this review at www.atthewheel.com.

Mike’s opening comments:

Since the rebirth of the Charger in 2006, Dodge has continually injected new life into this American Classic. This eye catching 4 door sedan has a sporty interior, ample seating, 4 powerful engine options ranging from the 292 horsepower V6 to the 707 horsepower supercharged V8. It’s not the only sedan on the market with Performance and Style, but when you look at the alternatives it sure does stand out. Other domestic considerations may be the Ford, Chevy, Buick or Chrysler, but none with attitude as is the personality of Charger.

General Information: It is assembled in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Parts – US/Canadian 64%, Mexico 26%; Engine – USA – Transmission – Germany; Classification is Large cars; Cars from Dodge: Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey and Viper.

Handling & Performance:

Listed as the base engine, the 3.6 liter, 292 horsepower V6 has enough power to maneuver the highways while still allowing for satisfying fuel economy. The V6 does not have the unique “purr” of the V8 but acceleration between the two is only slightly noticeable. The smooth shifting of the 8 speed automatic transmission has sporty low gears and transitions to a very quiet cruiser at high gears.

If you are looking for power, then look no further! The supercharged 6.2 liter 707 horsepower Hellcat Charger must be driven to be believed. Its upgraded performance package doesn’t stop at the engine. The most important features of a vehicle with this much power is the ability to handle the turns and stop when needed because of its enhanced tight suspension and responsive upgraded disc braking system.

Safety features of note that have been available since 2011.

Rain Brake Support: The system uses the ESC pump to occasionally push brake pads lightly against brake rotors in rainy conditions in order to keep rotors dry

Ready Alert Braking: the system anticipates situations when the driver may initiate an emergency brake stop and uses the ESC pump to set brake pads against rotors in order to decrease the time required for full brake application.

Styling:

A performance car persona with attitude.

Fit and Finish:

Very good.

Cost:

Competitive in this segment of the market.

Conveniences and comfort:
The interior options are plentiful and allows you to tailor your ride with a sporty yet comfortable driving experience. Those in need of super tech, the feature rich touch screen display with Navigation, Bluetooth and additional apps to enhance your daily drive may be a must-have to some.

Consumer Recommendation:

Surely you will want to include all of these offerings when you make such an important buying decision. I know you will have your favorites but you could surprise yourself and find others may trump your usual brand preference. In this class all the big three are represented . . . so some who prefer to “Buy American” will lean that way.

Recognized Competition:

Dodge Charger $31,000,  Buick LaCrosse $32,000, Chevrolet Impala $31,000, Chrysler 300 $33,000, Kia Cadenza $34,000, Ford Taurus $37,000, Toyota Avalon $38,000.

Good News:

Made in America muscle car that is not only powerful it looks the part, is comfortable, plus it can deliver decent fuel economy if you can keep your foot under control.

Bad News:

Standard Equipment:

3.6 liter V6 engine, 8-speed auto transmission, 4-wheel ABS disc brakes with brake assist, rain brake support, ready alert braking, stability and traction control, electric power steering, hill start assist, keyless entry, tire pressure monitor, theft deterrent system, remote start system, front, front seat side airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, Uconnect.

Options:

Plus Group:Leather trim seats, 18” polished painted aluminum wheels, power front seats, vewntillated front seats, heated second row seats, heated steering wheel, rear back up camera, park sense rear park assist system, memory settings, power heated memory mirrors, security alarm, special illumination ($2,495); Bracktop appearance: 20” Gloss Black Painted Aluminum wheels, Satin Black one-piece spoiler, dark brushed interior accents, Gloss black interior and exterior accents, leather wrapped performance steering wheel, black edged premium floor mats ($495); Navigation / rear back up camera group, Sirius XM traffic and travel link 5-year subscription, Uconnect 8.4, GPS Navigation, HD radio ($695); Rallye Group: all season performance tires, sport suspension, Glass Black facia applique, 300 HP rating, Beats premium speakers, 552 watt amplifier, steering wheel mounted shift controls.

2016 Dodge Dart Rallye (1142)

Overview:

This is the 2016 Dodge Dart Rallye 4-door sedan. Son Michael just bought a Dodge Charger and was observing the Dart would appear to be a scaled down version of the Charger. Same seats as his charger and other similarities. Just a little smaller.

Over the past years Chrysler cars and trucks (Ram) have emerged from near bankruptcy to a very impressive American car company. Surely the history of great leaders like Lee Iacocca and the subsequent purchase by German Giant Daimler Benz, speaks to the many changes that have given vitality to a company that was a cornerstone of the auto industry.

Today the Big 3, GM, Ford and Chrysler plod on in a world where they have spawned other competitors in Japan and most recently Korea. They further have embraced the need to join the global market and manufacture reciprocally in Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia. Wisely done.

General Information: It is assembled in Wentzville, MO, USA. Parts – US/Canadian 59%, Mexico 20%; Engine – USA – Transmission – Republic of Korea; Classification is Midsize; Cars from Dodge: Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey and Viper.

Handling & Performance:

By all measure this Dodge Dart is a good representation of Chrysler in a very active segment of the market. It gets impressive highway fuel economy and is a nice midsize family sedan and comfortable commuter. In this price range however it lacks some of the features I have been touting for some time now. I can’t imagine ever buying another car without such features as “Blind Spot Warning”, “Smart Cruise Control” and would consider strongly justifying other new high tech safety features, like lane departure and crash avoidance.

Styling:

Very “today” in design that is attractive if consumer demand is how we measure such things.

Fit and Finish:

Very good assembly and it is comparable with all other brands in its market segment.

Cost:

Very well priced. All companies are joined at the hip in pricing which leads one to consider there is collusion or price fixing. However technology is so commonplace in manufacturing that all companies come up with the same design constraints and cost accounting is precise.

As important is the fact that marketing information and social media buzz give instant feedback on what is hot and what is NOT where the consumer is concerned. And finally changes can be instant so there are no Edsel boners of years past.

Conveniences and comfort:

Basic for the most part characterizes this level of transportation. But in terms of safety and comfort basic is far and away superior to what I grew up with in the mid-20th Century where Basic really meant something. 4 wheels an engine and transmission hanging on a frame covered with little more than a hunk of sheet metal and a rag top. Comfort meant you had a windshield, a basic heater and a push button radio to drown out the road noise. In the 1960s you may even have had the money to afford air conditioning. Wind wings were would soon be no longer needed. Only old guys and gals will relate to much of what I just said. Awe, nostalgia. Don’t you just love it.

Consumer Recommendation:

If you are on a tight budget, as so many of us are these days, you will want to include this very nice and capable transportation car in your search for a very affordable family sedan.

Recognized Competition:

Dodge Dart $25,000,  Mazda 3 $24,000, Chevrolet Cruze $25,000, Hyundai Elantra $22,000, Kia Forte $21,000, Acura ILX $29,000.

Good News:

Very good fuel economy, basic needs but very comfortable and well appointed.

Bad News:

Standard Equipment:

2.4 liter inline 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed auto transmission, 4-wheel ABS disc brakes with brake assist, electric power steering, stability and traction control, Roll mitigation, hill start assist, keyless entry, tire pressure monitor, speed sensitive power locks, front, front seat side airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, rear seat side aibags, driver knee bolster airbag, radio with single disc CD player, Uconnect voice command with Bluetooth, 6 speakers, steering wheel mounted audio controls, cruise control, air conditioning, audio jack input for mobile devices, 60/40 rear seat with trunk pass through, manual 6-way driver and passenger seat adjustment, power windows, tilt and telescopic steering column, auto headlights and daytime running lights.

Other domestic considerations may be the Ford Fusion, Chevy Impala or the Buick LaCrosse, none with the the attitude of the Charger.

Road Test:

Listed as the base engine, the 3.6 liter, 292 horsepower V6 has enough power to maneuver the highways while still allowing for satisfying fuel economy. The V6 does not have the unique “purr” of the V8 but acceleration between the two is only slightly noticeable. The smooth shifting of the 8 speed automatic transmission sure is nice when commuting in heavy traffic. When needed, the well tuned transmission still has sporty low gears to and transitions to a very quiet cruiser at high gears.

The most important features of a vehicle with power is the ability to handle the turns and stop when needed. No matter which model Charger you choose the driving experience is definitely enhanced with its tight suspension and responsive braking.

Convenience and Comfort:

The interior options are plentiful and allows you to tailor your ride with a sporty yet comfortable driving experience. A good mix of 12 volt and USB power outlets throughout the car makes it simple to power several devices at one time.
The redesigned center console shifter gives Charger a distinctive level of sophistication. The electronic shifter with AutoStick mimics the operation of a traditional linkage shifter, while allowing for smoother and more efficient shifting.
Those in need of super tech, the feature rich touch screen display with Navigation, Bluetooth and additional apps to enhance your daily drive are a must. The size of the display is just the right size for all the features and apps right at your fingertips. With the ability to add premium paid services through the UConnect system allows you to remote start the car, turn on the heat or AC as well as warm up your seats directly from a mobile device. .
Seating is very comfortable and spacious enough for 5 full sized adults.The front bucket seats are well formed and keep you in place when taking corners..

Good News:

Spacious interior with plenty of leg room for up to 5 passengers. Feature rich and touch screen head unit. Smooth ride with enough horsepower to accelerate with ease.

Bad News:

The only thing that i wish Dodge had done differently with the Charger was the direction in which the shifter is moved to change it from automatic to manual shifting. Rather than pulling the shifter towards you leaves you accidently changing from auto to manual when turning. My natural instinct is to hold the shifter when in manual mode to allow for quick shifting on a curvy road, which is difficult to remember not to use it as a
Another note is the direction to downshift. Most people would tell you that when in manual mode, you would pull the shifter down to downshift and push up to upshift. Not the case here, and it takes a little while to get used to. .
