2019 Ram Classic

2019 Ram Classic



This week at the Detroit Auto Show FCA released the newly redesigned Ram 1500, this new truck is beautiful in every way and is packed with so much technology its insane. The downside to all of this new tech is that it adds to the sticker price of already expensive trucks, so Ram has a solution. They are going to sell the current generation Ram alongside the next generation DT trucks. They are branding them as Ram Classics, FCA has recently done this very same trick to sell the old minivans and new ones together. 

Is a Hellcat Powered Ram Rebel in the Works?

Ram Rebel TRX



Did you see the time? It's 7:07 and that means it might be time for FCA to drop the mighty Hellcat engine in yet another vehicle. The 2019 Ram Rebel TRX may be the next Mopar powered by Hades Hellhounds. This week at the Detroit Auto Show Ram debuted the 2019 Ram 1500 and Rebel, they both stole the show, but it wasn't at the auto show that we heard about a Hellcat ram. It was from the official press release website, one of the images showed the Ram Rebels interior with the clock set for 7:07. This may not seem like anything important but the last time FCA did this they were hinting at the official horsepower numbers of the Hellcat. Back in 2016 Ram released a 575 Horse powered concept called the TRX concept, while that was just a concept vehicle it soon may be a reality. FCA has been on a kick of cramming the super charged Hellcat engine in just about anything they can, so why not a Ram?

Stelvio Pass
Nestled in the Italian Alps, the Stelvio Pass is the highest mountain pass in Italy (and the second highest in Europe), and the 12-mile road that crosses it boasts over 48 bends, breathtaking views and a dizzyingly quick rise in altitude, all the way up to 9,000 feet. Over the years, champions of cycling and motorsports have done battle here, making the route a fully fledged sporting legend. An important transport artery in the wars of the last century, this winding road has now become a major tourist attraction.

All-new Jeep Adventure Reality App
The all-new Jeep Adventure Reality app is the the ultimate ‘build your own’ augmented reality configuration tool, allowing everyone to experience the legendary capability of the Jeep brand anywhere at any time. Available currently for iPhone 7, 8, X and iPad Pro, the app delivers an engaging augmented reality experience where users can configure their vehicle to see what it looks like in their driveway or even their living room.

Consumers are able to explore trim levels, colors and configurations. They will be able to build two-door or four-door, hard top or soft top, change colors, change wheels and, most impressively, go inside the virtual vehicle to see the all-new interior in greater detail. The high-resolution imagery via the app shows what it’s really like to sit behind the wheel or zoom in on the flare vents. Users are able to interact with the vehicle by removing doors, putting the windshield up and down, turning on the headlights, opening the doors, honking the horn and turning the wheels.

This is the only configuration app that allows consumers to see their vehicle in augmented reality and then place it in a virtual reality environment. No goggles needed; just move the phone or tablet from side to side to see all around. Once the consumer has built their vehicle, they can share it socially and/or link to www.jeep.com for more information, including finding a dealer, searching new inventory or continuing their build for up-to-date pricing information.

Uconnect App Smartwatch Compatibility
FCA US customers can continue to stay conveniently connected to their vehicles with new Uconnect App Smartwatch integration. The Uconnect App is now compatible with the Apple Watch and Android Wear devices, allowing owners to quickly and remotely start their vehicle, lock and unlock doors, sound the horn and flash lights directly from their smartwatch.

Uconnect App Smartwatch compatibility is currently available for model-year 2018 vehicles equipped with SiriusXM Guardian connected services. Owners can download the Uconnect app to their smartphone via the App Store or Google Play and pair it with their smartwatch device.

Family Alerts
From new teen drivers to an aging parent, the new Family Alerts feature provides peace of mind when they are out on the road. Vehicle owners can set boundary limits, monitor driving speed and pinpoint vehicle location at any time via the Uconnect Smartphone app: 
  • Boundary Alert –  Vehicle owners can create up to five geo-fence boundaries and will be alerted the moment their vehicle is driven either out of or in to a pre-set geographic boundary 
  • Curfew Alert – Family Alerts help to enforce set curfew times. An alert will instantly let owners know when their vehicle is being driven outside of the curfew time assigned 
  • Speed Alerts - Healthy driving habits can be practiced with the Speed Alert. Vehicle owners can set speed parameters and will receive a notification whenever their vehicle exceeds a set limit 
  • Valet Alert – With Valet Alert, vehicle owners can hand over their keys with peace of mind. Owners will receive an alert the moment their vehicle is driven outside a 0.25-mile radius of a drop-off zone 

The Family Alerts service requires a subscription to SiriusXM Guardian connected services and is available on 2018 model-year vehicles equipped with a Uconnect 4C NAV system. A radius can be set between 0.25 and five miles and alerts are sent as a message option via email or phone text.

Drive 'n Save
Drive 'n Save is a new benefit of Uconnect that allows owners of FCA US connected vehicles to save on auto insurance based on good driving habits, such as following smooth acceleration, braking cautiously and even limiting late-night driving.

Launching in 2018 on vehicles equipped with Uconnect Access or SiriusXM Guardian connected services, all owners have to do is sign up, enroll and then drive – Uconnect will take care of the rest by collecting information about how their vehicle is driven. With that data, a personalized driving score is created, informing owners of how they are driving and can be viewed via a VIN-specific account on Mopar.com. Drive 'n Save will continually collect data for three months to ensure accuracy. The better the driving habits, the higher the driving score and based on the driving score alone, owners are able to receive discounts on auto insurance.

The score stays anonymous until drivers choose to start the conversation with insurance companies in their online account. Personal information recorded stays private and there is no risk of drivers’ rates going up. Drive 'n Save has the ability to get drivers on the right track with friendly recommendations and helpful tips that can increase their driving score.

Online Search for Uconnect Navigation
Looking for a new restaurant that just opened? Online Search for Uconnect Navigation can help. Available for vehicles equipped with Uconnect navigation, Online Search goes beyond the built-in Point of Interest database and is enhanced with up-to-date search results pulled directly from the cloud using a built-in cellular connection.

Using the Point of Interest search box via the 8.4-inch touchscreen, Online Search helps consumers search for a larger variety of locations and helps navigate past destinations that may no longer be in operation. 

Jeep Skill for Amazon Alexa and Amazon Echo Dot Devices
First launched on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee, Jeep vehicles continue to enhance the owner connection with the integration of the Jeep skill for Amazon Alexa. Alexa is Amazon’s voice service and is behind devices such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Show. Alexa provides a set of capabilities referred to as skills, which enable customers to make voice-activated requests.

Jeep skill responds to a multitude of voice commands via Alexa. The menu of commands can start the vehicle’s engine, lock and unlock doors, send navigation instructions to the vehicle, plus check fuel and tire pressure levels.

To initiate the Jeep skill for Amazon Alexa, owners must register with SiriusXM Guardian connected services, then search for and enable the Jeep skill in the skills store in the Alexa app. Once the customer’s SiriusXM Guardian and Amazon accounts are linked, customers can ask any Alexa device to open the Jeep skill.

Jeep skill for Amazon Alexa in Amazon Echo devices will be made available for the all-new Jeep Wrangler mid-2018 for users to explore.
