2014 Chrysler Group presentation

Hi, Warren and friends I’m live at the What’s new for the 2014 Chrysler Group presentation. We’ve got two Chrysler group bigwigs to answer questions for you today, Bob Hegbloom, Director of Ram Brand and Marketing Team will join us first, then the big guy, Head of U.S. Sales, Chrysler Group LLC Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer – Chrysler Canada Inc., President, and Chief Executive Officer – Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC will join us around 11:30.

Tidbits of great information coming your way, such as the light-duty Ram 1500 lineup will add a 3.0-liter V-6 eco-diesel mated with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that can put out 240-horsepower and 420-lb-ft of torque in early 2014 for just $2,850 more than 5.7L Hemi!

Pricing for the new 2014 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty starts at $29,600, plus $1,095 destination.

I was at the 2014 Ford event yesterday. If any of you are thinking of buying an electrified vehicle from Ford (I’m not sure if that includes a hybrid, so ask your car dealer) and solar panels Ford has a deal that if you buy a vehicle they will give you a discount (I think it is $2,000, but check) on solar panels if you buy them through Sunpower.

And a big bonus! After the chat, I am going for a hot lap with ALMS race car driver Tommy Kendall in a Dodge Viper SRT
