This car has the following done to it. $4,700 done to the transmissions and brakes to ensure it runs for another 110,000 miles for the next owner. Warranty on all work done through Feeny Dealership. New brake pads. New all season tires. Still Headlight covers. SRT wheels powder coated gloss black by a shop in Addison with a lifetime warranty. Can bring the wheels back and get any color you prefer (graphite gray, alloy stock color, etc.) Brand new factory SRT8 rear bumper. 20% window tint on all windows. If it wasnt for the 2013 GC SRT8 I wouldnt be selling this truck.This truck shouldnt last long on the open market and Im not saying that as the owner, Im saying that as a car fantastic.
Condition: The truck has a top of the line, $300 iPod integration/adapater player with a lifetime warranty on that. It was installed in the center console and runs under neath the cup holders and gear box. It also has a kill switch, which allows you to knock out any frequency coming from other cars surrounding you on the road. This truck has been babied. Washed once a week and never taken through a brush car warsh where it could collect swirl marks and etc. Either hand washed or taken though the touchless car wash. It has been detailed once every 6 months. Whoever buys this SRT I am going to take it into the #1 auto detailing shop in the Chicagoland area for an interior and exterior detail. The truck will look close to brand new for my new buyer. There are minimal flaws with the interior. Almost as a good as new. The exterior is in great shape. Hasnt seen much snow and salt.

Most automotive purists fear change, but not without reason. Change, after all, did kill big-block V8s, along with most station wagons and manual transmissions. But change has also brought with it far more performance, safety and fuel economy - not to mention ridding the world of shag carpet interiors, bias-ply tires and those horrible motorized seatbelts of the early '90s.

By this time next year, the Chevy Corvette, Jeep Cherokee and next-generation Ford Mustang will all be on sale and will all, in some way, have angered or offended purists. To those critics, Mark Phelan of the Detroit Free Press is preemptively telling them to stop complaining - at least until they've all been driven. From the Corvette's square taillights and the Cherokee's radical nose to whatever pony car purists will harp on the 2015 Mustang for, Phelan's column points out the positives of automotive evolution and the negatives of staying the course for too long. That's fair enough, but do you think Phelan is on point, or all wet? Head on over to the Detroit Free Press to read his words, then have your say in Comments.
Following the forced-hand introduction of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, there has definitely been a mix of responses revolving around everything from its design to the return of the legendary nameplate. As evidence of this, just check out the 1,000+ comments in our article last week and some of the many opinions that were voiced. Following this not-too-warm reception, Ward's Auto had a chance to talk to Chrysler designer chief - and SRT president - Ralph Gilles, who shed a little more light on the styling direction of the new Cherokee.

Rather than looking to previous models for inspiration, Gilles says that the Cherokee has been designed to be more contemporary, with Mark Allen, head of Jeep design, adding that a main goal was to make sure the design still looks modern five years from now. Interestingly, Gilles does point out that one of the design elements incorporated on the new Cherokee that pays homage to past Jeeps is the sharply downward angle for the leading edge of the beltline, which he notes is meant to mimic the look of the old YJ and TJ Wrangler models fitted with half doors. Of course, the squared-off wheel openings - a signature Jeep cue - are still used.
This is probably a design that will need to be seen on the street in actual daylight to properly assess, but in the meantime, we'll bring you full images and impressions when the Cherokee debuts at next month's New York Auto Show.
In 2011, Chrysler announced a $72-million investment in its Toledo Machining Plant to modernize production of the eight- and nine-speed torque-converters for automatic transmissions made there. That upgrade work won't be finished until Q3 of this year, but Chrysler has already announced a further $19.6-million investment to increase production capacity for the nine-speeders.
The extra units will be necessary because the nine-speed transmission they'll be mated to is going into three popular models: it will debut on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, then go into the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart. The company predicted that this year alone it would sell 200,000 units equipped with the nine-speed tranny, and it is spending some $374 million in addition to the investment in Toledo to upgrade production capacity for it.
The work attached to this new investment won't begin until Q3 of 2014, and it will be finished by the end of that year. There's a press release below with all the details.
