My Zimbio Car Speaker Modification: New Chrysler Aspen Specification

New Chrysler Aspen Specification

The Chrysler Aspen Limited 4X2 is Chrysler's full-size SUV. The Aspen shares the same platform as the Dodge Durango. It is clear that when the Aspen was on the drawing board we were not suffering from a credit crunch or gas price hikes. However, although the sheer size and cost of the Aspen may deter buyers, some buyers actually need vehicles like the Chrysler Aspen Limited 4X2 in order to tow large boats or trailers. We should not forget that there is a place for vehicles with huge towing capacities - try towing a 40ft trailer with a Prius!

The Chrysler Aspen Limited 4X2 uses exactly the same suspension layout as the Dodge Durango, independent, double-wishbone front and non-independent solid-axle rear. The Aspen comes with a 303-hp 4.7-liter V8 or a 335-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine and either rear- or all-wheel drive. Both engines are mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and the Hemi V8 includes the Chrysler Multi-displacement System (MDS) which is capable of shutting down 4 cylinders to conserve fuel when not required.

Conventional 2009 Chrysler Aspen are available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. 2009 Chrysler Aspen Hybrids are AWD only. Maximum towing capacity is 8900 lb for conventional models, 6000 lb for the Hybrid. A low-range gear for off-roading is an option on non-Hybrid AWD models. The 2009 Chrysler Aspen its available in safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain side airbags, and front side airbags.

Standard seating is for eight with a 2nd-row bench; available buckets reduce it to seven. A power liftgate and rearview camera are standard on all models. Leather upholstery and navigation system are standard on Hybrid and available on other models. DVD entertainment is optional on all.

The Consumer Guide Automotive compare places each vehicle into one of 18 classes based on size, price, and market position for consumer choice. Premium Midsize SUVs are similar in size and construction to Midsize SUVs. Most, in fact, are gilded versions of Midsize SUVs; though a few are exclusive upscale designs.

New or significantly redesigned models include the Infiniti FX and Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The Chrysler Aspen adds a gas/electric hybrid model, and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and R-Class add a new diesel powerplant, as does the Volkswagen Touareg 2.
