Highlights from the FCA Montreal Winter Drive Program

FCA Chrysler - ChryslerDealerNY

We covered the FCA Montreal Winter Drive Program a bit ago.  It might sound like a school event, but it is really a giant ice covered obstacle course that Chrysler set up to show off how amazing their vehicles are on winter surfaces.  Every major vehicle of theirs made an appearance in some form or another, such as Dodge with the Charger Pursuit –the police variant- and the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk.  Courses were designed to test steering and hills.  While I was not lucky enough to attend, Kristin Barclay of In Deep H2O was able to and had some interesting tidbits to share about the event.

The most interesting highlight is the one she makes about the AWD capable Chryslers.  She quotes a stat that “In 2014, 32% of all Chrysler 300 sedans and 30% of all Dodge Chargers sold were all-wheel drive vehicles.”  She also explains that she didn’t really understand the difference between AWD and the rest of the set-ups.  Even living in a place with regular snow fall makes me feel like I’m terribly unaware of the real differences.

She experience with the 2015 Chrysler 200 is one that I find interesting.  Not just that I like the new sedan, but how well it handles itself on the icy terrain.  She talks about the AWD system in the 200 and how it “sends up to 60 percent of the engine’s output to the rear tires.”  She also got the chance to feel the difference between winter and all-season tires.

Another ego boost for the sedan is that when she asked the professional instructors at the event which vehicle they enjoyed the most.  Their answer, which I do agree with you that I would’ve thought one of the bigger trucks or meaner muscle cars, was the 2015 200.

Chrysler at SEMA 2013

Chrysler 300S Mopar-Modified SEMA Show Vehicle

When Chrysler shows up to SEMA, it brings with it their talent and skill at impressing the crowd. At this year’s show, they really turned up the heat providing something for fans of every brand to drool over for the next few months.

Through the brilliant engineers at Mopar, the parts and service arm of Chrysler, they have brought new forms to their most popular vehicles. The most notable of which is garnering the most praise is Chrysler bringing back the ‘Scat Performance” pack for the Dodge Challenger.

Along with this new performance pack is the Shaker hood for the Challenger as well. The reason for that name? The air intake shakes with the movement of the engine.

The Scat performance package will be available for the Charger, Dart, and Challenger.

Plenty of other spruced up vehicles are being offered, from SRT to Jeep, and we’re covering all of them on the main blog on Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge, so be sure to check it out for more future coverage.
