 Dodge Dart

The 2013 Dodge Dart is a front-wheel-drive small sedan based on an Italian hatchback; it starts with its basic structure, suspension and steering borrowed from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta sold in Europe. 

With underpinnings sourced from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the 2013 Dodge Dart boasts the sort of lively, responsive handling you'd expect from something with an Italian birthright. The steering is well weighted, and the car does a nice job of driving about town, turns confidently while also offering the sort of comfortable ride that you might expect from a larger car.

The Dart is a tad wider than average for this class, which not only imparts more passenger space but also creates the feeling that you're driving something rather substantial. It really doesn't feel like a compact car; the Dart's bigger dimensions make it seem more sizeable and confident when cruising down the road.

The SXT is like the SE within the Value Group, but for 2013 it came equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, upgraded cloth upholstery, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat, a sliding front armrest, an upgraded instrument panel and a six-speaker sound system. The SXT Rallye package added to that with fog-lamps, exclusive exterior and interior trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.

Every 2013 Dodge Dart comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front and rear side airbags, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags. A rearview camera came as an option, as did blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert systems.

Every 2013 Dodge Dart (except the GT) comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 160 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic transmission was optional. 

In government crash testing, the Dart earned a top five-star overall rating, with five stars for total frontal impact protection and five stars for total side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety similarly awarded the Dart a top score of "Good" in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. In brake testing, the Dart came to a stop from 60 mph in 118 feet, putting it among the best in the segment.

The Dodge Dart presents one of the nicest cabins in its class. Each subsequent trim level added even nicer elements - the Dart actually fully develops the ascending trim levels with such touches as extra padding on surfaces, dash stitching and flourishes of colorful trim.

The music hub features easy-to-navigate menus, big touch buttons and an accompanying knob that makes skimming through external device menus quick and easy.

 Chrysler 200

The 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan was completely redesigned for 2015. Its strong engine, composed ride and handling, high-quality interior materials, attractive infotainment interface and available all-wheel drive are just some of the amazing features for this car.

The styling is striking for a car in this price range, and it is probably the most upgraded design exterior for the Chrysler brand that we’ve seen in a long time. The interior cabin has been refurbished as well and features high quality materials and a stylish new touchscreen electronic interface that's especially easy to use.

New safety features like blind-spot monitoring and forward collision warning systems put the 2015 Chrysler 200 on a advantageous footing with other more expensive leaders in this class. But there’s more, the structural and engine changes are even more transformative.

For 2015, the 200 implemented a marginally enlarged version of the platform architecture already used for the Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee. It's a more structurally rigid foundation than that used on previous models and it contributes to a quieter, more cultivated ride quality. You’ll be very impressed with the handling of the 200, superior in this class.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan also received an upgraded 184-horsepower four-cylinder engine that presents outstanding performance for this class. The 2015 also gained the option of all-wheel drive on V6 models.

Standard features on the 2015 Limited include 17-inch steel alloy wheels, upgraded exterior trim, keyless ignition and entry, air-conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, manually height-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat and a six-speaker sound system with USB/iPod integration and an auxiliary audio input. There were several options packages included at the Limited trim level, check with your sales professional at Kelly Risk Free to see what options are included in our always changing used inventory.

The EPA's fuel-economy estimates for the 2015 Chrysler 200 range from 28 mpg combined (23 city/36 highway) for the base engine to 23 mpg combined (19/32) for the V6 and 22/18/29 for the AWD V6. Our highway-biased evaluation loop produced an impressive 34-mpg average for the four-cylinder and 28 mpg for the AWD V6, essentially validating the EPA's findings that are often difficult to reproduce in the real world.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 came in four trim levels: LX, Limited, S and C. We’re always available to you to discuss what you would like to see in your new used Chrysler 200.

Used Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Used Jeep Grand Cherokee is a five-passenger midsize SUV available in four trim levels. If your SUV requirements include a significant off-road ability, the Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is a great choice. There are three different four-wheel-drive systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II) all providing superior off-road abilities, from low-grade dirt roads to camel country. If you need to tow, this Jeep's maximum towing capacity is a hefty 7,400 pounds.

Considering that the Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is an all-terrain beast, its road handling deportment is surprisingly good. Steering is precise and handling is solid; in off-road situations, the Jeep's advanced 4WD hardware earn it true mountain-goat status.

In 2009, the Jeep Grand Cherokee's 5.7-liter V8 got a power and fuel economy boost while the high-performance SRT8 model got an additional leather interior surface and a performance trip computer.

Jeep has worked hard to keep its Grand Cherokee up-to-date and upgrades to the available V8s have boosted power. Increases in available equipment and overall quality improvement made in this model year add up to a better Grand Cherokee.

The interior features a rich two-tone cabin and an LED-illuminated instrument cluster. For 2009, a leather appearance package added leather to the armrest, doors and the top of the instrument panel.

The Laredo trim comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, all-terrain tires, a roof rack, an eight-way power driver seat, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, a 60/40-split rear seatback, cruise control, a trip computer and a six-speaker stereo with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Options on the Laredo include a sunroof, a rear back-up camera with parking sensors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable pedals, a power passenger seat, heated front seats, remote ignition, leather upholstery, a universal garage door opener, Bluetooth, a navigation system, real-time traffic, an upgraded six-speaker stereo with satellite radio, an iPod interface and a hard drive for digital music storage.

The standard engine on the Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is a 3.7-liter V6 that makes 210 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque. Like every Grand Cherokee, the Laredo comes with a mandatory five-speed automatic transmission. Estimated fuel economy is 16 mpg city/21 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined with two-wheel drive (4x2) and 15/20/17 with four-wheel drive (4x4).  Four-wheel-drive Laredos come with the single-speed Quadra-Trac I system, which essentially functions as all-wheel drive.

Safety features include antilock disc brakes, stability control and standard side curtain airbags with a roll-detection system. The stability control system includes trailer sway control on Overland models; it's optional on the Laredo and Limited. The JGC earned a perfect five stars in all government front and side crash tests.

Dodge Charger

For the 2015 model year the Dodge Charger was enhanced with a redesigned interior, a new 7-inch customizable gauge cluster, a redesigned instrument cluster and a new electronic shifter. The Uconnect infotainment system -one of the best infotainment systems in the automotive industry -and an available 8.4-inch touch screen returned for the 2015 model year. The seats are comfortable and can handle long road trips with ease.

The interior fit and finish is really quite spectacular, with real metal accents, contrast stitching, and soft-touch plastics on all models. Passenger space is generous for five adults and features plenty of legroom and headroom. Trunk volume is unstinting at 16.5 cubic feet and can be expanded with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

On the outside, the hood, front doors, spoiler, taillights and front fascia were all redesigned for the 2015 model year. The new grille and headlights, which have been repositioned to help with engine airflow, are quick to catch the eye. This design element also gives the new Charger a low, aggressive stance, and the newly styled rear end continues to feature Dodge’s renowned “racetrack” taillights. LED daytime running lights, acoustic front glass and windshield, front and rear power windows with express front up/down, and a configurable, full color, 7-inch driver information display are all standard features on the 2015 Dodge Charger.

Even with its larger size and all that power, the 2015 Dodge Charger offers great street performance and handling especially when you consider its blazing acceleration. Refinement remains in very high quantity with a stable character, especially when equipped with all-wheel drive. (The 2015 Dodge is standard rear-drive; all-wheel drive is available only with the V-6 engine.)

The addition of the eight-speed automatic across the entire Charger lineup and the integration of cylinder deactivation in models with the 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter V-8s enhanced performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency.

The Charger brand has always been a bit more comfort-oriented, and this model is no exception. Ride quality isn’t compromised even in the performance models because of the suspension tuning being softened slightly. You will love the great balance of ride and handling and the spacious and well-appointed interior.

The NHTSA gave the 2015 Charger a five-star rollover safety rating (out of a possible five stars) while in IIHS evaluations, the car received a Good score on four categories (Good is the highest possible score).

Chrysler PT Cruiser

There are probably very few cars that have come around in the past 20 years as fun and stylish as the PT Cruiser! It has a devoted fan base and owners keep their vehicles in top-notch shape.

In 2006, the front and rear fascia’s were updated, including a new grille with a winged Chrysler badge and chrome accents; new headlamps with scalloped bottom edges, new round fog lamps, and a new spoiler on the rear roof panel. The 2006 PT Cruiser's interior was updated including fresh seat trim and a satin silver-finished instrument panel with larger graphics and an analog clock. A passenger grab handle now sits on the instrument panel, and a new console features a sliding armrest. All radios came with MP3 capability standard.

Up to five occupants can fit inside the versatile interior. Two bucket seats are installed up front and a 65/35-split, folding rear bench holds three.

Removing the rear seat expands cargo volume from a moderate 21.6 cubic feet to a sizable 62.7 cubic feet. The front-passenger seatback folds flat, leaving enough space to haul an 8-foot ladder. Performance seats, silver cluster gauges and a satin silver gearshift knob are included in the GT.  Built on a 103-inch wheelbase, the PT Cruiser is 168.9 inches long overall and 63 inches tall.

Chrysler's unabashed retro styled PT Cruiser Convertible went into production in early 2004 as a 2005 model. Styling features include a broad sport bar above the passenger area. The 2006 convertible model got the same updates mentioned above along with the traditional sedan. Convertibles came in the Touring and GT trim levels; the split, folding rear seat is the same height in both the convertible and wagon, and provides theater-style seating.

The PT Cruiser blends the elements of a sedan, wagon, sport utility vehicle and minivan overlaid with street-rod styling from the 1950s. Hard to imagine another vehicle model with appeal to so many styles and needs at the same time! And they pulled it off so elegantly!

The convertible's driving characteristics are nearly identical to the solid-roofed PT Cruiser; the soft-top model yields a tremendously pleasing driving experience. The thick roof bar doesn't detract from the pleasures of the sun. A top-down GT with automatic performs and handles with a light touch, a spirited throttle; the roof goes up and down easily. Owners give the convertible Cruiser high marks for low wind annoyance when the top is down.

A liftgate-mounted sport spoiler came standard on the GT and optional on the Limited. The potent PT Cruiser GT has a larger, lower grille opening for its air-to-air intercooler. Additional GT features include a large-diameter chrome exhaust tip and all-season performance tires on 17-inch chrome-clad wheels.

The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder produces 150 hp. Two turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinders are offered, producing either 180 hp or 230 hp.

Imaginative and distinctive styling and visual appeal are the main attractions, but this wagon's roomy and flexible interior keeps fulfilling owners’ needs. Throttle response is rapid, handling is confident and nimble. This wagon maneuvers with utter crispness and can take corners with impressive speed; the stable PT Cruiser is exceptionally easy to drive!

Antilock brakes are standard on the GT and available on other trim levels. Side-impact airbags for the front seats are optional, but a driver's inflatable knee blocker is newly standard.
