2016 Chrysler Aspen

The 2016 Chrysler Aspen model is drawing every so closely to its release. Scheduled to appear this year, this is a model which is a great choice if you are looking to buy a complete care. With the recent changes and updates brought to it, the car has certainly featured a lot of improvements coming into a new model year. The Aspen has been absent a few years already from the market as there have not been any recent updated made no new model releases. But this is something that was expected to happen and we see a fully and compete model in front of us. What better cause for a review than this.

Chrysler Aspen is a full-size SUV vehicle with three rows of seating which is going to be brought these year to the market as part of Chrysler’s big lineup release. The model made its debut in 2006 and was a great new addition for the brand as it featured a lot of innovations brought to the model. One of them was the first use of a hybrid system for this kind of a car which came with the last incarnation of this model.

For the 2016 version of the Chrysler Aspen car we can expect a lot of updates to happen. Being absent from the market for a while has only brought the car to make it big and prompted Chrysler to give it all they got. This means some additions like an all new aggressive look with an updated and enhanced powertrain option. Read all the news, specs and updated right here and see what the announced price ranges are.

Exterior design

When we look at the latest 2016 Chrysler Aspen model we see a lot of the Chryslers dalasi that make this car a staple of the company. As they are already veterans in making SUV models it was very easy for them to produce and update this model. The original Aspen, on the other hand, was based on the exterior looks of the Dodge Durango model, and although some of the details seen on that car have been transferred here the newly minted version has a lot of things that are standard only for it itself.

Entering into the new model year, Chrysler has decided to update the model a bit and not just keep it as toned down as before. The announcement was that the care was going to add a new and aggressive look, which can certainly be seen from the released pictures. The 2016 Chrysler Aspen model is going to use a lot of standard Chrysler elements seen on the recent models which are going to make this redesign possible.

Additionally, the dimensions of the car are going to stay the same as there were some speculations that the car might expand and get bigger. This is going to guarantee the same amount of room seen as before and bring ample comfit on the inside.

Interior look

Speaking of the inside, the 2016 Chrysler Aspen has brought a very good interior offer. The inside of the Aspen is still going to intake 8 people as it did before and is going to amount to enough interior space and comfort. An SUV’s prime aim is to provide enough comforts for the people inside and the Aspen is going to manage that while at the same time adding enough space in the trunk and a great cargo load as well.

The comfort levels are further extended with the fine materials that we see on the seats. The new bodywork changes the style a bit of the cabin but it does not go to such an extent compared to the previous model. It still retains most of the features seen before but adds some parts which we were able to view on the latest Chrysler cares.

The infotainment is a big factor as a new LCD system has been added which you can use to control the majority of the systems in the car and use it to your advantage. Connectivity is a big factor as you can use Bluetooth to connect it with your phone and have a larger insight on the car that way also.

Engine performance

The news about the engine for the 2016 Chrysler Aspen has been vague, there were many choices that were mentioned and thrown into the mix at first, but ultimately there has to be only one. Well in this case it is going to be two. The Aspen from Chrysler is going to borrow engines from the Durango and the latest Town and Country model and bring their performance to a desired level. The base version is thus the 3.2 liter V6 Pentaster engine which is able to produce 270 hp and torque of 281 lb-ft. The added option is a more powerful one which is going to give you an output of 290 hp with the  3.6 liter Pentastar unit with V6. Both variants come standard with an AWD system.

2017 Chrysler Imperial

The 2017 Chrysler Imperial is nearing its completion. The model has been rumored for a number of times now and no real evidence came out which would lead us to consider that the model is going to happen. The sole things that we have gained are mock drafts of the car and early renderings without any solid evidence of an actual car happening soon. This time the Canadian based Brampton facility has made us all happy as they issued early picture of the car which is almost production ready.

The early showings of the Imperial look pretty impressive and we see a model which has all the makings of a luxury and generally great looking model. In fact it is no wonder all of us have been so excited on getting this model. As the release date is finally nearing we take look at this car form a closer inspection through our review which shows you all the specs and details of the car.

The pictures do look good but it is not enough to bring you a direct picture of the car that the hardcore fans want to see. Chrysler has perhaps managed to outdo itself with the production of this vehicle as it promises to incorporate the brand new design language that Chrysler is imposing on all of their contemporary models. In fact this one takes it a little bit further as it adds more luxury.

Exterior

Well it is perhaps little to say that the exterior design of the 2017 Chrysler Imperial has a regal and for lack of a better word imperial design, but it is also just that. The model takes up a really nice luxury look with a pinch of future added there as well. There are a lot of elements which have been borrowed from Chrysler’s imperial lineup hand which have been incorporated here perfectly to fit this car pretty well. The very attractive and actually royal looking framework is its greatest advantage and brings the future of Chrysler vehicles here and now.

Car enthusiasts will immediately notice that the initial design of the Imperial is directly taken by the legend of regal cars, the Rolls Royce Phantom. This car uses the design well and wears it like a crown as it truly should. The doors have a suicidal design to them while the front fascia is near perfect. The headlights are perfectly aligned while the taillights have a more imaginative design to them with a variation on the whole concept. The lights are all run using LED light technology and there are better halogen lamps used this time. All in all, the shape of the 2017 Chrysler Imperial is the best thing about this new car which we are really loving right now.

Interior

The inside of the 2017 Chrysler Imperial is a great match for the overall look of the car. The polishing that has been done to the outside is good enough to match the car on the inside as they continued the premium arrangement there as well. The model has truly top grade content and prime materials added to the inside which makes it more than capable of adding the any formal and typically luxurious situation.

The materials on the inside are exasperating and makes the cabin breathtaking. The model uses a kind of a regal design to bring everything together here and incorporates it pretty well. The vehicle is thus brought to the highest level possible and the design does not only match the materials but also the way the cabin has been made as it is a flash of excellence. There are still more details to be announced and some further additions that are going to be made as the makers did not release detailed pictures of the vehicle’s interior.

Engine

There were a lot of talks and speculations being made about the engine of the 2017 Chrysler Imperial. There are a lot of talks that relate to the model and its powertrain setup and a lot of them were actually made in the last years when the vehicle was rumored. Some initial assumptions included a 2.4 liter, a 3.2 liter or a 3.6 liter V6. But in fact the 2017 model Imperial is going to carry a 1.4 liter or a 1.8 liter turbo engine with direct fuel injection. For a better variety of selection a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine is also given as optional that we can select. All of the engines are going to combine with a nine pace ZF automated gearbox which makes for excellent fuel economy, but unfortunately no official specs have been released.
