2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star Unveiled at Dallas Auto Show

2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star

The Dallas Auto Show took place from February 14-18, 2018, and with it came tons of new announcements and vehicles to get excited about. At the show, Ram revealed its all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star, considered to be the original “Texas Truck.” You couldn’t have had a more perfect launch for this pickup truck, as the Ram 1500 Lone Star is the brand’s best-selling truck in Texas. Randall Noe CDJR, located only about a half hour outside of Dallas, is positive this truck has a lot to offer Texas drivers.

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star delivers power, capability, and advanced technology. It comes with a standard 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine or a fuel-efficient HEMI® engine paired with an eTorque mild hybrid system. Later this year, you will also have the option of a 3.6-liter Pentastar® with eTorque engine.

The interior is entirely redesigned for 2019, featuring state-of-the-art technology and high-quality, durable materials. The 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star is available only in Texas, and the truck will feature flashy and distinctive “Lone Star” tailgate and badges. As the head of Ram Brand states, “The hard-working appeal of the Ram Lone Star has made it a favorite among Texas truck buyers. Trucks are an important part of Texas life, and Ram Trucks are proven to last.”

You can’t go wrong with the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star. Not only will you be driving a remarkably capable pickup truck, you’ll also be at the wheel of one with distinctly Texan power and flair.

FCA and Hyundai Partnership Eyes Hydrogen Powertrain

FCA and Hyundai partnership

If you’ve been staying on top of automotive news, you may have heard rumors that FCA and Hyundai are planning to merge. According to official sources, these rumors are false. However, such rumors do appear to be founded in a strong partnership between the two automotive companies that is much more real than just a rumor.

News of an FCA and Hyundai partnership has been confirmed by FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne. Specifically, they will be working together on series of new transmissions including a new hydrogen engine.

The partnership is an excellent choice for FCA, whose goals for the future include developing multiple alternatives to the traditional fuel-based powertrain. Notably, it’s not the first time that Hyundai has lent a helping hand to FCA with engineering for future vehicles. The two automotive companies collaborated at least once before when Hyundai was brought in to help design the six-speed transmission currently in the Jeep Compass.

At Randall Noe CDJR, we love to see the power of teamwork at play and we’re glad that both FCA and Hyundai seem to support one another and benefit from the partnership. We’re looking forward to seeing what their current project develops, as well as what over projects they may take on together in the future.

Fiat-Chrysler Awards: Consumer Guide® Best Buys

Read about all the Fiat-Chrysler awards wins, from Randall Noe CDJR

If you’d like to drive home an award-winning vehicle, you’re likely to find one at Randall Noe CDJR. That’s because four Fiat-Chrysler vehicles were recently named 2018 Consumer Guide® Automotive Best Buys. These cars include the Pacifica, Durango, Ram 1500, and Fiat 124 Spider.

Fiat-Chrysler Award Winners

According to Chrysler, the recent Fiat-Chrysler awards included high marks for four very special vehicles. The Pacifica took home the gold for the Minivan and Family Vehicle category, which it’s won two years in a row. This is also the second consecutive year on the Best Buys list for the Fiat 124 Spider, a sporty coupe that’s truly fun to drive.

“There’s a lot of good product hitting the market these days, but some designs are so well executed that they endure the test of new challengers. In the cases of the Durango and Ram, that is especially true,” said Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive. “As for the Pacifica, it’s simply one of the most thoughtfully designed family vehicles we’ve ever evaluated.”

Ram 1500 Continues Its Streak

The Ram 1500 was the best truck in the Large Pickup Trucks category for the 10th year in a row, a truly impressive feat. Meanwhile, the Durango wont the Large SUV segment for the sixth consecutive year, which is equally outstanding.

Fun Things to Do in Rockwall, Texas

Rockwall might be named after the geological rock walls that were discovered when the city was first founded, but there is a lot more to do than just look at rocks. Here are the top five fun things to do in Rockwall.

things to do in Rockwall - Randall Noe CDJR - Terrell, TX

  1. Downtown. Over the past few years, downtown Rockwall has been reinvigorated with new shops, restaurants, and fun. Go on Saturday mornings for the farmer’s market.
  2. Horseback Riding. If you love horses, be sure to spend a day at Chisholm Trail Rides. Here, you can learn the basics of riding and go on some beautiful trail rides.
  3. Harbor Rockwall. This is one of the newest entertainment destinations in the area. Spend an evening enjoying a delicious meal, take in some shopping, snap a few pictures of the lighthouse, and then take a stroll along Lake Ray Hubbard.
  4. Blase Family Farm. In the fall, this family farm features hayrides, pumpkins, a petting zoo, and more. Return in the summer for fresh blueberry picking.

Stay Prepared for the Worst with a Roadside Emergency Kit

Driving is always dangerous, which is just one reason you should have a well-stocked emergency kit at all times. In addition to the basics like a spare tire, jack, and jumper cables, there are a few things every car should have. For example, does your car have a fire extinguisher? A first aid kit? Randall Noe CDJR has compiled a list of things to include in your roadside emergency kit.

roadside emergency kit - randall noe cdjr - terrell, tx

You never know when disaster is going to strike. The DMV suggests including a first aid kit in your emergency kit, one that has Band Aids, gauze, and antiseptic. Aspirin can thin blood if someone’s having a heart attack, but it works equally well on headaches. Tweezers can help with splinters, and cotton balls have many purposes.

Carry fresh water and non-perishable food, especially if you’re driving into remote regions. Most people can go weeks without food, but you can die in mere days without enough water—especially in Texas heat.

Finally, bring a tarp and duct tape. You’d be surprised how often a waterproof surface will come in handy, and some tarps can double as blankets. With duct tape, the possibilities are endless. You may even be able to perform basic repairs with a simple roll of high-quality tape.

Other important things to include are a flashlight, baby wipes, and a multipurpose tool. Above all else, restock your kit regularly to make sure you’re always prepared for the worst.

Before you get stranded, be sure to schedule regular service appointments with Randall Noe CDJR! You can even schedule service online today.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Launch Date Could Be Soon

Jeep Wrangler Release Update

The successor to the 2017 Jeep Wrangler may be launched soon

New Wrangler: What Do We Know?

Jeep has been keeping news about the new Wrangler under wraps because it knows how much we all love a good surprise. What we do know to a reasonable degree is that the next generation of the iconic nameplate will feature new lineup additions such as a pickup truck model, as well as a more lightweight build and even a diesel engine option. However, beyond that, we don’t know much about it, or even what it will look like. Sources seem to indicate, however, that we may not have as long to wait for the new Jeep Wrangler’s launch as we had originally anticipated.

When Will News Be Released?

Rumors are swirling that instead of having production begin on the Wrangler in mid-November and debuting it at the Los Angeles Auto Show that same month, Jeep could start building the Wrangler in as soon as two weeks, with the first examples rolling off the production line at early as October 30th. This would mean that the Wrangler could make its public debut well before L.A., perhaps even as early as the start of October. A bit like Christmas in autumn for Jeep lovers!

Whatever the window in which the Jeep Wrangler launch takes place, we here at Randall Noe CDJR will have our eyes and ears open in anticipation for a new generation of off-road goodness. Stay tuned, and we will let you know what to expect and when you can drive it.
