About Chrysler Aspen

Chrysler's introduction last year of yet another large SUV to an already crowded market might have seemed a little like arriving at a party just as was breaking up. But before the idea of four dollar a gallon gasoline and an economy on the fritz, the rationale seemed logical. While Chrysler felt it was necessary to have a player in this segment the future of the Aspen and other SUV's like it now hangs precariously in the balance. If your budget allows it, 2009 may be the best time to go shopping because there are deals to be made on full-size trucks and SUVS. Despite its less than stellar operating costs, the 2009 Chrysler Aspen is an elegant addition to the large SUV landscape, one that features a hybrid version to help ease fuel economy worries and give buyers a way to remain in the Chrysler family when their own families outgrow the Town & Country minivan.

Although it sounds like a contradiction in logic, the Aspen HEMI Hybrid offers improved city fuel economy with the towing and passing power of a 5.7-liter engine. It also provides a 40-percent improvement in city fuel economy over the non- hybrid V8.

The 4.7-liter E-85-compatible V8 engine bumps up the horsepower and refinement considerably. Chrysler's MyGIG multimedia audio system now includes a rear back-up camera.

Chrysler's research revealed that, at trade-in time, 25 percent of its customers were swapping their cars for SUVs. The problem was, the brand had none to offer, hence brand-loyal buyers were forced to look elsewhere. That all changes with the rollout of the new Aspen.

"I bouht my Aspen in October and love everything about it. Two days ago I was on a very snowy road when another SUV went out of control,crossed the center line and crashed into me head-on. There is very extensive damage to both cars but I am here to tell everyone this vhicle was unvelievable in the crash and I do not have a scratch, just a wrenched neck. The front end is gone but the passenger compartment was unharmed. I will buy another Aspen in a heartbeat. Protct your family, buy an Aspen today!!"

"Great, great fun. Can buy this car loaded with all the latest bells and whistles for much less than other high end SUVs. This is Chrysler's upscale version of the Dodge Durango, and 2007 came only in a "Ltd." version, although there are various options available. Chrysler's well seasoned V8-Hemi engine is great option, and actually gets better mileage than the smaller engine available. Some owners say "horrible" mileage, but this overstates the issue, relative to other choices. Read online reviews of Toyota Highlander hybrid from real owners, and you'll realize that the Aspen with Hemi gets nearly the same mileage as the Highlander hybrid (!!!), in part, apparently, due to the Chrysler hemi engine automatically shifting to 4 cylinders while you're cruising. I'm getting 20-22 or better on the highway. Other reviewers joyful comments (and smile icons) are well justified; tons of "giddyup" from this great engine when you need it. And overall styling is in some sense subtle, but elegant, and moreso with the available 20" chrome over alloy wheels. Oddly enough, a head turner when people see it up close, and wonder what it is. I remember feeling the same way when I saw a Chrysler limousine recently, and had to ask the driver what it was. Interior is in many ways very plush, although all these cars (including Toyotas) could have nicer leather, as we did in the "good ole days" in American luxury cars. Enjoy this mid-priced luxury SUV."
