The folks over at Nissan have brought a new level of marketing to the table. Upon the release of their new TITAN XD Nissan had previewed images of their upcoming TITAN Warrior Concept which became a reality during the Detroit Auto Show. The pickup’s new aggressive design implies the truck is a go where you want type of vehicle much like the Ram Rebel or Ford Raptor.

The design team at Nissan believes even though it’s still early in the TITAN and TITAN XD’s life cycle they’re already looking for more ways to improve the overall experience of the vehicle. Much like Ram Trucks or Ford, Nissan is trying to get their share of the off-road enthusiast market.

The TITAN Warrior Concept was designed to be the next step above the production version of the TITAN XD. It’s a beefier version that features some of the same equipment like the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine.

You may have heard about Project Titan, a recent program that sent two military veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project to Alaska! Tough terrain requires a tough vehicle, that’s where the TITAN Warrior design team comes into play.

The TITAN Warrior Concept design team was not about to build a new vehicle from the ground up, rather they used a familiar platform. That of the 2016 Nissan TITAN XD. This allows for expansion in the future.

The original design of the TITAN and TITAN XD was based off ancient greek mythology. Naturally, they returned to that idea and built an even more extreme and aggressive looking version of the truck.

[rev_slider NTWC1]

The idea was to maintain the TITAN XD’s standard length and wheelbase while building on the style and stance of the pickup. The height was increased from 78.7 inches to 81.5 inches to house the new 37-inch off-road tires and it all comes together with the 18×9.5-inch aluminum alloy wheels with a dark matte finish. The new suspension system featured in the TITAN Warrior Concept forced the designers to extend the width of the vehicle from 80.6 inches to 86.6 inches. These are the building blocks for the current stance of the TITAN Warrior Concept, and it’s one we enjoy very much. This truck looks good, and everyone knows it.

Although, the stance of a vehicle is important what you put on the vehicle at the end of the day is what determines if it’s going to sell. The design team at Nissan decided every great warrior has a set of armor and so, the TITAN Warrior Concept was born. The armor isn’t exactly armor. It won’t stop bullets, explosives, or even a deer but we can tell you it looks pretty cool either way. The modern armor look combined with the height increase highlights all the changes our customers have been looking for in their off-road solutions.

Surely, at this point, you have noticed a few more changes that have yet to be mentioned like the new grille, rear fenders, hood, skidplates, LED lights, quad-tipped exhaust system, carbon fiber rear cab spoiler, tailgate spoilers, and roof mounted LED lights. All these changes and more come together to create the most aggressive and capable pickup truck Nissan has ever produced.

When you look at many other off-road vehicles you will notice their interior has been gutted. Everything from rear seats to window motors has been removed to lower the weight of the vehicle. That is not the case with the TITAN Warrior Concept. The performance based interior focuses on off-road safety, comfort, and of course style. It’s like driving in a Maybach that can drive up the side of a mountain. The consumer’s use of the vehicle is assumed to be that of an off-road enthusiast but that doesn’t mean the TITAN Warrior Concept wasn’t meant to be a daily driver. Nissan hopes to please both types of customers with their new concept.

The TITAN Warrior Concept shares the same platform, engine, and automatic transmission as the TITAN XD. The real difference between the two is found underneath the vehicle. The new custom suspension has been modified from the ground up to make it feel like you are driving in your very own racing truck.

If you can’t wait for the Nissan TITAN Warrior Concept to become a reality then we urge you to come visit us in Auburn and take one of our many Nissan TITAN or TITAN XD’s out for a test drive.

The brand-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was just named the 2017 North American Utility of the Year by a panel of experts. We first found out during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Some experts are saying this is one of the most prestigious awards you can win, especially in this class.

Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, Dodge, SRT, FIAT, FCA, and Chrysler believes that they had the formula for a perfect minivan but if it weren’t for loyal customers and professional opinions, we wouldn’t be driving an award-winning mini-van today.

Believe it or not, this is the 24th year of the awards and only the second time ever that a minivan has won an award from the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year jury.

Innovation isn’t new to the folks at FCA US in fact, they actually have over 100 innovations in this segment alone including the industry’s first minivan available as a Hybrid Electric vehicle.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has boldened the minivan segment with its massive amount of functionality, technology, and styling. The Pacifica was completely redesigned from the ground up on a brand-new platform. Not only is the Pacifica a class leader in fuel economy but it also features well over 100 available safety and security features. If you are in the market for a no-compromise vehicle suited for your whole family, look no further than the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.

The Pacifica Hybrid takes this revolutionary vehicle a step further with its class-exclusive, innovative advanced and class-exclusive hybrid powertrain. It’s the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment and achieves 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and 33 miles of all-electric range.

As if it needed anything else added to its resume, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid boasts 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and up to 33 miles of all-electric range.

[rev_slider FAF]

We were recently invited to the Springfield Rescue Mission, located on 10 Mill St. in Springfield, for a tour of their new facility. We were initially greeted by a dining hall of happy faces. Many of the residents went out of their way to introduce themselves which really was an awakening experience. After speaking with a number of the residents we soon realized that all of these men are down on their luck and are desperately working to become viable members of society once again. Life can be hard but it’s always moving forward, some people just lose their path and need a little nudge into the right direction. We are very proud of the work The Springfield Rescue Mission is doing and we will work hard to continue to support them in their ventures.

The Springfield Rescue Mission isn’t just a shelter that accepts people for the night. They offer so much more than just their emergency shelter which many people aren’t aware of. Some programs offered by The Springfield Rescue Mission include their rehabilitation program and their transitional living program. These programs aim to get men off the street and into the doors of the Springfield Rescue Mission where they will undergo numerous introductory exams and interviews to craft the best curriculum for them. You read that correctly, in order to gain access to The Springfield Rescue Mission’s exclusive programs you must complete basic computer literacy, English, math and budget counseling courses to make sure you’re ready for reentry into society. A new entry into the Emergency Shelter will receive a shower, basic toiletries, a meal, and a bed for the night. Keep in mind that their Emergency Shelter can only house 43 men a night and isn’t by any means a permanent residence.

With the move to their new location The Springfield Rescue Mission is able to offer free breakfast open to the public from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM 6 days out of the week. This is partly due to the increased size of their new kitchen and dining hall. They can now fit over 100 people in their dining hall! The kitchen is run by a team of residents and volunteers who are able to provide free nutritious meals to people who come to the shelter. There is also the Operation SONshine outreach program, which allows volunteers to stop at 7 locations and distribute free food to people in low-income areas.

At the moment the Springfield Rescue Mission is able to sleep 60 people. Every resident is assigned a Chaplin and they will work together to complete the program at a comfortable pace. Each Chaplin is generally assigned 6 men to work with, so as you can imagine things can get pretty busy.

The Give-Away center at the Springfield Rescue Mission is always looking for donations to keep their shelves stocked. You can find many of the supplies that are currently in need below:
•Deodorant
•Soap
•Toothbrushes
•Toothpaste
•Winter Coats (Men, Women, and Children)
•Gently used clothing (Men, Women, and Children)
•New Underwear & Socks (Men, Women, and Children)
•Please contact the Springfield Rescue Mission for more information on needed materials.
Note: If you would like to use the Give Away Center at The Springfield Rescue Mission you must book an appointment first. To book an appointment give the mission a call at (413) 732-0808 ext. 121 and please bring a photo ID.

All of these services are here to help men, women, and children enter society with the best chances. Unfortunately, at this time the Springfield Rescue Mission is primarily dedicated to getting men off the street and into a warm bed. They have hopes in the future to open a women’s shelter of their own that can offer many new programs directed strictly towards women’s health and getting them back on their feet. If you are interested in helping the Springfield Rescue Mission out click here to check out some of their alternative donation methods.

subws_crosstrekhybrid
Subaru of America recently announced that they will be stopping sales on the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid for the 2017 model year. The Crosstrek Hybrid was actually Subaru’s first hybrid to be mass produced. It’s great on gas and still has all the features you have come to enjoy with Subaru vehicles like amazing on and off-road performance. Does this mean it didn’t sell well? No, not at all. Subaru’s motive for stopping production on the Crosstrek Hybrid is most likely due to the global platform being implemented into Subaru’s lineup.
[rev_slider crosstrekhybrid]

Now this may be the end of the Crosstrek Hybrid, but Subaru may still have a few Hybrid models up their sleeve. Jeff Walters, executive vice president of sales, explained “We are currently working on a new hybrid vehicle, although it is too early to discuss specifics.” It’s too early to tell what Walters is referring to exactly but some enthusiasts are already up in arms about the news.


Subaru’s goal is to move to a global platform for their vehicles. The new platform was designed to include PHEV and electric vehicles. Crash absorption has improved by 40% with the new platform and Subaru has even increased the rigidity of the body structure by over 70%! Combine the new platform with Subaru’s award winning All-wheel drive system, EyeSight capabilities and we’re looking at a pretty great base for the next generation of Subaru vehicles. If you are even half as excited we are for the next set of models then let us know which 2017/2018 model or concept is your favorite in the comments below.

The folks over at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have recently given their followers the hope that a Ford Raptor competitor is in the works. Many Ram Truck lovers will find this news to be absolutely game changing and there are some Ford lovers that will be making the switch too. So what is all the hype behind the new Ram Rebel TRX Concept?

ram-rebel-off-road-concept-pickup-truck

Performance
Lets imagine for just a moment an off-road capable pickup truck with 575 horses under the hood and 37 inch tires. Combine those ingredients and you are left with a complete animal of a pickup. The concept truck itself is actually a completely working model. It’s been driven over 100 miles per hour on rough terrain. This is mostly due to the updated suspension, the 6.2 Liter HEMI V-8 engine, and the eight-speed automatic transmission.

ram-rebel-concept-texas-state-fair

Competition
With so many manufacturers setting their sights on the high performance off-road truck market we are bound to see many more concepts in due time. The folks over at Ram hope their take on an extreme off-road pickup stands out from the rest but only time will tell. The Ram Rebel TRX is still just a concept so there is still time to see changes. If you could change or add anything what would you add to the Ram Rebel TRX? Let us know in the comments below!

Stay updated on all things Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram Truck related by following our blog! Stay tuned for even more updates and changes. If you can’t wait for the Ram Rebel TRX to be released feel free to visit us in Chicopee and we may be able to get you into something almost as cool.

If you have been watching the news or perhaps you’ve even visited New York City recently you may have noticed a little snow on one corner but none on the next. This as well as a Jeep Wrangler being suspended from a building. You are probably expecting to read about some protest being held where they suspend a Jeep Wrangler until something is changed. However, that is not the case, the source of the snow as well as the suspended jeep happens to be apart of an advertising campaign held for the new “Rise of the Tom Raider” coming out for PS4.

please excuse the low quality of the image below.

You may be asking yourself, why in the world would a company suspend a 2,000 lbs vehicle above moving traffic in such a populated city? Well, it is simple, for a video game of course! The newest addition to the Tomb Raider series will be here on October 11th. The best part about the suspended Jeep is that once the game launches on of it’s lucky players will actually get to take the Jeep home! The best part is that this isn’t a prank. The cables and billboard have been approved by the FDNY as well as other city officials. The billboard and Jeep will only be up during October so be sure to enter for your chance to win!

If you could care less about the launch of Rise of The Tomb Raider and you are in the market for a new Jeep Wrangler of your own please feel free to view our inventory here. Be sure to check out our inventory of new Jeeps, Dodges, Chryslers, and Ram Trucks right here. For more information please feel free to visit us online at the link below.
