Dodge To Increase Hellcat Production Due To Overwhelming Popularity

Dodge To Increase Hellcat Production Due To Overwhelming Popularity

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Following a report yesterday, Dodge will increase Hellcat production due to overwhelming popularity for the powerful muscle cars. Production for both the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT will more than double for the 2016 model year, and the company will also simplify the ordering process to make it a lot easier for customers to purchase one of the monster, 707-horsepower vehicles.

An unprecedented amount of buzz has surrounded both the Challenger and Charger Hellcat models since their release, and popularity has spurred thanks to the universal success of the film Furious 7. This popularity led to a frustrating ordering process which included accepting deposits and orders despite a low-supply and without advising customers that their orders may not be filled.

In order to meet the immense demand, Dodge will be more than doubling SRT Hellcat production for 2016 and will make it easier for an impatient public to get their hands on the hottest muscle car in recent history. As a result of this, about 900 current orders for 2015 SRT Hellcats will be cancelled, however these customers will receive discounted 2016 model-year pricing on the new Hellcats.

Both of the Hellcat models– Charger and Challenger– receive minor standard enhancements for 2016, which include an ultra-premium Laguna Leather interior, Uconnect 8.4-inch infotainment screen with navigation, HD radio and five years of SiriusXM Travel Link and Sirius XM Traffic.

Even though current orders on 2015 Hellcat models have been canceled, Dodge will increase Hellcat production in 2016 due to overwhelming popularity. If you would like more information on how to put a deposit down for a 2016 Dodge Hellcat Charger or Challenger, feel free to give us a call at your Outer Banks Area Chevy Dealership! We do have 2015 Charger and 2015 Challenger models onsite if you would like to get the feel of what owning your very own Hellcat might be like! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

This vehicle launches itself into a category above Ferrari AND Lamborghini, while declaring to the world, "Don't mess with American muscle!"

The 2016 Corvette Z06 Will Be On Its Way To Perry Auto Group SoonWith a 0-60 mph time of 2.95 seconds– quicker than the amount of time it takes between rings on your cell phone– this car is horrifically fast, however, there is nothing at all terrifying about Chevy's 650-horsepower super car. The beautiful sports car impresses at every turn, whether you are just walking up to it, accelerating the throttle, turning or engaging the brakes. The engineers and technicians at General Motors have truly outdone themselves this time!

The '16 Z06 also out-accelerates and has more horsepower than any of these sports cars.

The Z06 Corvette Convertible comes with a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, which puts out 650 pound-feet of torque and 650 horsepower. The engine comes in either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, and delivers game-changing power with a lovely sound. Reports state that the seven-speed manual is smooth with a light shifter and clutch effort, and short throws. Informative indicators in the heads-up display show what gear you are in.

For a sports car, the Z06 has a superb fuel economy rating of 15/22 city/hwy, for a combined fuel economy of 18 mpg, while also being the most powerful model in its class.

Ram Has Just Delivered A Ram 3500 With 900 lb-ft Of Torque

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The "Truck War" is starting to get crowded with contenders, and the most recent one from Ram just rolled off of the assembly line! Ram has just delivered a Ram 3500 with 900 lb-ft of torque! The torque truck battle has been quickly escalating, with new updates and launches coming almost weekly now from Ford and Chevy, and now FCA is throwing its hat into the ring!

Even though the HP of the 3500 hasn't changed over the past few years, every truck buyer knows that torque is the magic number that gets the job done when it comes to towing or hauling. This insane amount of torque will soon be available at Perry Auto Group (however, the exact date is still unknown) since the 2016 Ram 3500s have JUST rolled off the 'ole assembly line.

Last year, Ford Motor Company premiered a a revised Power Stroke diesel that would make the truck capable of 860 lb-ft of torque. No sooner had Ford made that announcement that Ram followed up with an 865 lb-ft of torque Cummins. To prove it is ready to TRULY dominate the class, the ante is upped once again now that Ram just delivered a Ram 3500 with 900 lb-ft of torque!

Not much else is really known about the all-new 2016 Ram 3500, however, we DO know that the truck will be making its way to dealerships as soon as possible! If you have been itching to get behind the wheel of a new or used Ram truck, stop by and take one of ours out for a test drive!

The Chevy Silverado Is Getting A Bold New Look For 2016

The Chevy Silverado Is Getting A Bold New Look For 2016

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The Chevy Silverado is getting a bold new look for 2016, and the details definitely have sparked everyone's interest! The new pickup is sporting a freshened up look that adds a more muscular feel to the new truck. It's important that Chevy refreshed the Silverado mid-cycle because of the amount of competition currently clogging the mid-size truck segment in the United States.

The Silverado is the most important model in the Chevrolet lineup because it's Chevy's, and GM's, best selling vehicle. There is no arguing over the success of the Silverado when it comes to sales, as the numbers have spiked to up above 14.6% in the first half of 2015. Since the newest model was updated completely in 2013, sales have continually climbed just over 10% each year.

To make sure it keeps its crown as the best selling pickup, the Chevy Silverado is getting a bold new look for 2016. This includes a re-formed front end with more bolder, horizontal elements and a newly sculpted hood. Other updates will include wider availability of an 8-speed automatic transmission, and a completely retooled Chevy MyLink touch screen with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new display system will also use additional safety technologies, making the new truck one of the most technologically advanced models in its segment.

Sandor Piszar, marketing director of Chevy Trucks stated, "It will feature a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies." All of these new updated and re-designs allows the Silverado to completely take the Ford F-Series head on, especially since Ford has chosen to go with a more bendable, aluminum bodied truck this time around. Chevy has stuck with steel.

Chevrolet has not released information on when the new 2016 Silverado will roll into dealer lots, but we will definitely let you know when they get here! If all this talk about America's favorite pickup makes you want your own, stop by for a test drive in any of our new or used Chevy trucks, even the 2015 SilveradoPerry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - If you're a fan of Chrysler or 'Game of Thrones', listen up because Peter Dinklage, star of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' narrates new ads for Chrysler! Dinklage, who plays the fan-popular character Tyrion Lannister for the popular HBO drama, narrated five more 30-second Chrysler ads for the brand's 200 and 300 - midsize series.

The enticing ads use multiple literary works and passages from Jack Kerouac, Marcel Proust, William Wordsworth, Herman Mellville and Walph Waldo Emerson which is definitely a unique and creative twist to the summer Chrysler campaign. Take a look at the new ads below and tell us what you think!

 


All of the ads can be seen on Chrysler's YouTube page and will air over the course of the summer promoting the brand's summer clearance event. It is exciting to see the star of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' narrating new ads for Chrysler, seeing as Dinklage did so well with the previous FCA ads, "Drive Proud" and "The Kings and Queens of America".

Why Drowsy Driving Is Just As Dangerous As Drunk Driving

Why Drowsy Driving Is Just As Dangerous As Drunk Driving


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Many drivers today do not realize or understand the dangerous risk that is drowsy driving or driving fatigue. Drowsy driving slows reaction time, decreases awareness, impairs judgement and increases aggressiveness which is why drowsy driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving. These are the same signs associated with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and just like driving drunk, drowsy driving can cause mistakes behind the wheel that can injure or kill your or other motorists you share the road with.

Back in 2003, New Jersey passed Maggie's Law, named after a 20-year-old college student was hit and killed by a drowsy driver. This law states that a sleep-deprived driver qualifies as a reckless driver who can be convicted of vehicular homicide and serve jail time. While many states do not have such laws against drowsy driving, the problem has gotten more and more attention over the last few years.

Recently, the AAA Foundation for Traffic found that nine out of every 10 policemen in North America had stopped a driver who they thought was driving drunk, but turned out to be a drowsy driver instead. According to the Johns Hopkins Medical Center, drivers should be aware of these warning signs:
  • You cannot remember the last few miles driven.
  • You hit a rumble strip or drift from your lane.
  • You keep pulling your vehicle back into your lane. 
  • Your thoughts are wandering and disconnected.
  • You yawn repeatedly.
  • You have difficulty focusing or keeping your eyes open and your head up. 
  • You tailgate or miss traffic signs. 
  • You have barely avoided being in an accident. 
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, drowsiness or fatigue is the principal cause of up to 100,000 police-reported passenger vehicle crashes a year, with 1,500 resulting in death. It is important to understand why drowsy driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving, and that you should never get behind the wheel if you are having a problem keeping your eyes open and staying alert.

Why Are So Many Americans Buying A Jeep?

Why Are So Many Americans Buying A Jeep?

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Why are so many Americans buying a Jeep? How is it that back in the darkest days of the global financial crisis, Jeep could only muster a little over 200,000 annual vehicle sales in America and had little-to-no influence on the global market, but it's now becoming one of the fastest-growing automotive companies in the world? Currently, sales are expected to top out at 1.2 million– yes, MILLION– vehicles for 2015! That is outrageously good! Jeep just released its numbers for the month of June, and it is looking that the automaker is on track to meet its projections, and THEN some.

Last month, Jeep enjoyed its best June sales in the 74-year history of the company, selling 71,529 vehicles in the United States! Leading the way for the brand was the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Patriot and the Jeep Wrangler, which all had their best June sales month ever! The all-new Jeep Renegade (now in its third month of sales) had a 10 percent uptick from May, which is a sign that the smallest crossover in the company may be starting to catch on.

Jeep's successful June was the driving force behind Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' strongest June sales since 2006. So why are so many Americas buying a Jeep? There are potentially several reasons, but low gas prices are definitely one of the leading factors. The entire crossover and small SUV segments have been on the rise the entire year due to lower gas prices and the confidence of Americans that a crossover or small SUV has now become affordable. The Jeep brand OWNS these segments. Jeep has also rebranded itself, and has focused its marketing towards Millennials and Generation Z, thus creating a brand loyalty at a young age.

It is so exciting to see one of our favorite auto companies taking off! Here at your local Norfolk Area Jeep Dealer, we have TONS of new and used Jeeps to see! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

How Chevy Is Making It Harder To Steal A Vehicle

How Chevy Is Making It Harder To Steal A Vehicle


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - GM has recently announced how Chevy is making it harder to steal a vehicle with the new Theft Alarm Notification feature on its OnStar Stolen Vehicle Assistance program. The new service will be available to eligible subscribers later this summer, and will help prompt a swift response from OnStar advisors and local authorities whenever a vehicle is stolen or broken into.

This new extension of the Stolen Vehicle Assistance feature is only the most recent in a series of new updates to the system that include Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown. With the new Theft Alarm Notification, subscribers can choose to receive alerts via SMS test, email or by phone if a theft attempt triggers their vehicle's alarm system and the alarm sounds.

This new technology is currently an OnStar and Chevy specialized feature, and it is so exciting to see how Chevy is making it harder to steal a vehicle. The system is backed by glass breakage sensors, interior motion sensors and an inclination/tilt sensor, which will sound an alarm if the vehicle is lifted up off the ground, a break-in is attempted or if motion is detected within the vehicle when the system is armed.

Chevy is always breaking the mold with innovative features, and the Theft Alarm Notification feature will be sure to deter auto theft in the next few years. If you would like to stop by and test drive any of our Chevy OnStar equipped vehicles, feel free to stop by your Outerbanks Chevy Dealer today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.
