2020 Dodge Charger for Sale at Bonham Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

As 2019 draws to an end, it’s time to start thinking about the kind of vehicle that you want to drive next year. Some people always prefer getting the new year’s models while others enjoy driving a high-quality truck while saving some money by buying pre-owned cars. Bonham Chrysler appeals to both sides of that discussion, as we maintain an impressive stock of new and used cars and trucks. As a certified CDJR dealership, you’ll find new and used Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles to suit every need. Whether you’re an outdoorsman, contractor, commuter, or all three, you can count on us to get you set up with the perfect truck for you. Below, we highlight some of the year’s best cars and trucks that you can find on our lot.

The Chrysler 300 and Pacifica

Chrysler did an excellent job of designing a line up so good that it’s hard to choose between the cars. Here’s our quick take on the benefits of each model

  • Chrysler 300 – Nearly the perfect sedan for combining comfort with performance, the 300 comes with a range of available trims. The basic Chrysler 300 Touring model comes standard with a robust 3.6-liter V6 24-Valve VVT engine and 4-wheel independent suspension for impressive handling. Those who want even more power can upgrade to the 300C for a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI VVT engine. Both come with the innovative Uconnect 4C with 8.4-inch display, while audiophiles can opt for an upgrade to integrated Harmon Kardon speakers in the 300C.

  • Pacifica – With greater utility for families, the Pacifica creates an impressive sensation as a minivan. Like the Touring 300, the Pacifica comes with a 3.6-liter V6 24-Valve VVT engine, but it also comes with a host of security features and the ability to comfortably seat up to seven passengers. Entertainment comes easy with a satellite radio hookup and two monitors in the front.

You can also find older models available at a significant value on our lot. Each used Chrysler for sale is inspected for safety, quality, and performance.

Dodge Offers a Full Suite of Options for Any Driver

Dodge delivered an excellent spread of vehicles again this year, covering everything from a pickup truck in the Dodge Durango to a sports car in the Dodge Challenger for sale. Each one has its perks and represents the results of a talented team of car designers working around the clock to produce high-quality designs.

  • Grand Caravan – The flagship of Dodge vehicles since 1983, the Grand Caravan continues to deliver reliable engine performance and safety specs. When you hop inside, you’ll immediately feel how spacious the interior is and know that this is a minivan you can count on to get the whole family to the vacation spot without them tearing each other’s hair out due to tight quarters.

  • Challenger – The Challenger remains an impressive machine, with both standard and Hellcat versions. The latter boasts an incredible 717 horsepower coming from its 6.2 Liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. Fans of the challenger can expect much of the same power and performance that they got last year, and Dodge made sure not to ruin an already-good thing. 

  • Charger – The 2019 Charger retains its established power and design from prior years, but somehow finds a way to shave off a few pounds from the chassis. The result is improved handling and fuel efficiency, which makes it that much easier to enjoy the sporty experience while saving a few dollars on gas. Despite its strength as a sports car, the sedan design ensures that there’s no discomfort with bringing a few friends along for the ride. 

  • Durango – Dodge’s SUV experienced an upgrade in its new suspension and frontal fascia but otherwise continues its successful build from last year, rated well on safety and power alike. While the base model includes a 3.6 Liter Pentastar V6 engine, you can upgrade that to a 6.4 Liter HEMI V8 engine for incredible torque and horsepower. In fact, despite the hefty weight, the Durango can race up to 60mph in just 4.7 seconds from a standing start. Don’t get us started on what that means for its towing capacity.

  • Journey – 2019’s Dodge Journey remains mostly unchanged from last year’s design, and you’ll find it remains an easy-to-drive, comfortable midrange vehicle. Light-duty enough to not feel over the top on your daily commute, but robust enough to take you on a weekend getaway, you can rely on the Journey’s solid construction to see you through.

Jeep Wrangler, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee

As ever, Jeep produces a reliable line of vehicles to suit nearly any style of driver. We’ve selected three of our favorites from the 2019 model year: the Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, and Jeep Wrangler for sale.

  • Grand Cherokee – In 2019, this model doesn’t pull any punches in terms of luxury or performance. It’s ready for the races with an astounding 3.5-second 0-60mph thanks to a supercharged 6.2 Liter V8 engine. Fortunately, it’s packed with the handling to match, so the power remains firmly under your control with a tight turning radius and high-tech slip differential that ensures the power’s going to the right wheels simultaneously. You’re also safe to drive under any conditions with the Grand Cherokee’s Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection.

  • Cherokee – Those who want many of the features of the Grand Cherokee scaled down for day-to-day driving will find that the Cherokee perfectly fits the bill. Trim options run from the basic Latitude to the premium Overland, while all versions include an ample combined 79.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the front seats. The engine is significantly toned down for daily use compared to the Grand Cherokee, but the result is an economical 22 city / 31 highway mpg for the Latitude.

  • Wrangler – The Wrangler is the classic choice for those outdoors adventures where you’re not afraid to get your Jeep a little – or a lot – muddy. All models come standard with the engaging 6-speed manual transmission to help you feel truly in control. If you want to push your Wrangler to its limits, you should consider the Rubicon, which comes standard with the 4:1 Rock-Trac Heavy Duty Part-Time 4WD System and performance suspension to keep you moving even in the toughest conditions. 

Ram 2500 and ProMaster Cargo Van

Ram is known for its robust vehicles, and 2019 saw that trend continue with new versions of its classic lineup. We’re focusing on two standouts from the model year, the ProMaster Cargo Van and 2500 Ram truck for sale.

  • ProMaster – The ProMaster is an excellent choice for small business owners and larger firms alike, as it will carry anything you need from place to place. Load it up with a full workshop to bring your workspace with you to any job site. Alternatively, take advantage of the ample storage space and powerful engine to carry significant loads to and from supplier warehouses.

  • Ram 2500 – You can tow nearly 20,000 pounds even under extreme conditions thanks to the unrivaled power of the Ram 2500’s 6.4 Liter Heavy Duty V8 HEMI engine. The Halogen Quad Headlamps keep things visible any time of night, and the pushbutton start makes it easy to get going as soon as you’re ready.

Top 5 Tips For A Road Trip To Bonham Tx

2019 Jeep Gladiator Trailering in Bonham Texas near Bonham Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Road trips are one of life’s great pleasures. There’s not much better than getting your gear together and hopping in the car with your friends and family for a few weeks of exploration. You can discover parts of the United States you’d never seen before, even right close to home. As you take the road trip, however, there are a few essential tips that we’d like to share. Keep reading below for the official Bonham Chrysler Road trip Checklist for 2019-20.

Tip #1 – Keep Your Food Costs in Check

You’d be amazed at how much money you can spend on the road. Many people think that the dollar menu at fast-food restaurants is a great way to save money, but the reality is that you’ll wind up spending more cash than you realize and feel regretful doing it. When you combine greasy fast food with hours sitting behind the wheel or in the passenger seat, it’s one way to take the energy and positive spirit out of the journey.

Our favorite ways to beat this trend, then, involve two separate tricks: visit those mom-and-pop shops along the way and stock up on snacks at grocery stores. Usually, those independent restaurants will provide generous portions for breakfast and lunch specials. If you can beat the dinner rush and arrive in time for early bird specials, you can save even more money. Our advice is to load up at lunch and pack away the leftovers in a cooler to have as a snack later on. One $6 lunch special will usually be better-made than what you get at a fast-food joint and keep you from feeling hungry again for a lot longer.

The grocery store can help out in two ways. First, you’ll avoid overpaying on snacks by buying in bulk – why spend $1.49 for a small bag of Cheetos at the gas station when you can get four times as much for $1.99 at the supermarket? You can also buy bread, lunch meats, and other lunch-ready meals, thus saving even more money for your main meals. Plus, you may run into some locals at the grocery store who can help you find the best deal on a hot cooked meal around. 

Tip #2 – Sleep on the Cheap

Many people already have the gear to go camping, but they don’t realize that they can combine that with a long term road trip! There are numerous locations not far from the main road where you can set up camp for a night or two and enjoy the great outdoors without spending hundreds on hotel rooms. The best part is that you don’t even need to plan much, as these camping areas are common throughout the most beautiful parts of the country.

If you want to plan out a little further and figure out specific dates that you’ll be in various cities, you can even schedule an Airbnb in advance for a day or two. It’s helpful to have these pitstops along your route so you can count on a shower and a clean bed at a discounted rate, especially if you’re only using it as a stopover.

A third option is to find free lodging thanks to the help of sympathetic locals or travelers. You can use a service such as couchsurfing.com, which lets willing hosts open their homes to travelers. These people have ratings and reviews from others who have stayed with them, so you can have a bit of confidence knowing that they are likely to be legitimate. Otherwise, you could try the old fashioned way and chat up some locals in a public area, restaurant, or bar setting. If you get a good feeling from them, you can politely ask, and they may be able to host you for a night.

Tip #3 – Don’t Get Gouged on Gas, Handle Your Preventive Maintenance

Gas isn’t the same price everywhere you go. Not only do states and localities tax gasoline at different rates, but individual stations’ prices vary depending on where you go. Fortunately, there are apps and guides dedicated to where you can find the consistently least expensive gas. Scout out a few of those in advance and make sure that you put them on the route when you plan a road trip with Google Maps. You can also use those apps for real-time updates regarding where to find the cheapest gas near you.

Your car and your driving are also significant factors when it comes to keeping your costs low. If you drive at optimal speeds for your car or truck, you can drastically reduce the amount of gas you’re using. After all, road trips are about the journey, so you don’t need to be driving 80+ mph all the time. Instead, get to a steady cruising velocity and pass the time with your friends having good conversations, listening to your favorite music, or playing road trip games.

You also shouldn’t forget the critical step of stopping by the Bonham Chrysler Service Department to have your vehicle checked out beforehand. The last thing you want while you’re on a road trip is to have to stop by a random mechanic and be at their mercy. Not only might you have to overpay for the inconvenience, but you also might get stranded in the middle of nowhere for a day – or more. Let us help you by giving your car the all-clear before you hit the road. 

Tip #4 – Pack Efficiently and Don’t Forget a Rooftop Storage Box

It can get cramped in your car when you pack enough clothes, food, gear, and entertainment as well as your best friends into the cab and trunk of your vehicle. In fact, it’s fairly common that you’ll either have too much junk in the seating area, which swiftly gets quite uncomfortable. Instead, invest in a rooftop storage box for your car or one that fits into the bed of your pickup. These will protect your possessions from the elements and help you organize without sacrificing valuable seating space. 

Tip #5 – Visit the Sights You’ll Never Forget

When it comes to being a top-quality road trip planner, the attractions are one of the most important things. You can’t forget to take time to visit the most beautiful natural sights in the state, such as Bonham State Park (a picturesque natural preserve with hiking, pristine woods, and rolling hills) and Lake Texoma (a sprawling lake created by Denison Dam on the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma). Take advantage of the opportunities for beautiful views, energizing hiking, and rental boats.

You can also visit cultural centers, including the Sam Rayburn Museum and House, Fort Inglish Village. You’ll be surprised at the hidden gems you can find just by driving along the numbered routes in northern Texas and following the signs for those random roadside attractions. Nothing makes for a better story than exploring the most unusual stop along the route. 

Most Importantly, Have Fun!

As you’re planning the trip, don’t forget that the key thing is to make sure that you have a good time with it. Talk to your friends and family about what they want to see or do during the journey. Perhaps someone wants to spend several days camping by a lake while someone else wants to spend an afternoon playing laser tag. The schedule is entirely up to you, so figure it out between yourselves and don’t forget to save some time for exploring or appreciating the natural beauty of Texas and the rest of the United States.
