The automaker's Dodge brand has been a major partner with the "Fast & Furious" franchise and the Dodge Charger and Challenger as well as the Jeep Wrangler were all heavily featured throughout the most recent film of the series, Furious 7. 

FCA Chief Marketing Officer Olivier Francois has teamed up with multiple movie and music stars in the past including Eminem, Imagine Dragons, Clint Eastwood, Will Ferrell and Bob Dylan. Francois has stated that FCA is very particular with the movies and stars  the automaker works with, "It has to be unexpected; it has to be noticeable ... and lastly, it needs to really tie into the brand,".

The Pope Will Be Ferried In A Jeep Wrangler For His Upcoming Visit - 08/22/2015

The Pope Will Be Ferried In A Jeep Wrangler For His Upcoming Visit


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Pope Francis will definitely be more in touch with his "rugged" side when he stops by the States for a visit. The Pope will be ferried in the Jeep Wrangler for his upcoming visit, comparable too a white one he used while on his last visit to Ecuador earlier this summer (shown above). The Vatican confirmed this just yesterday, to the delight of Jeep fans across the country.

While Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the Italian-American maker of Jeep, has not disclosed the configuration of the popemobile, the Vatican did say the Wrangler is already in the hands of the Secret Service and won't be on view before the Pope's visit in September.

What we can view however, is the he white Wrangler used by the pope in Ecuador which had a glass-front roof with open sides, allowing the popular pontiff greater proximity to his flock than pope-mobiles of the past, which were typically closed, bullet-proof affairs.

The Pope will be ferried in the Jeep Wrangler for his upcoming visit stateside, a move that definitely will be welcomed by the American public. If you would like to get your hands on your very own Jeep Wrangler (we cannot promise bullet-proof glass however), then stop by to check out our current ones here at Perry Auto Group! At your Outer Banks Area Chevy Dealership, we offer the Perry Advantage Service Program to all of our truck buyers! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909.

Your Smartphones Will No Longer Overheat In New Chevrolet Cars - 08/07/2015

ELIZABETH CITY, NC – Smartphones can overheat for a lot of reasons such as overusing the device, charging it, or having it in high temperatures. Chevy found a lot of phones doing this when they are hooked up to charge wirelessly with some vehicles. The phones end up getting so hot they either stop working or shut off completely, which is damaging to your device.

When the smartphone over heats, it damages the lithium-ion batteries and decreases the life of the phone. It also makes the processing go much slower. Do not fear however, your smartphones will no longer overheat in new Chevrolet cars.

Your Smartphones Will No Longer Overheat In New Chevrolet Cars

Engineers designed Active Phone Cooling to chill out this situation. The phone sits in the bin that is used when you are wirelessly charging the system and works when drivers turn on the HVAC system. The vent will blow onto the phone and keep it cool while it’s in use.

Your Smartphones Will No Longer Overheat In New Chevrolet Cars

Your smartphones will no longer overheat in new Chevrolet cars! The exciting new feature will be available in the 2016 Chevy Impala, Volt, Malibu, and Cruze and this system is going to help all smartphone users because drivers rely on their navigation, music, and phone calls to sync to their car during their commutes. 

Stay tuned to hear more about the features you're able to get with cars. For more information on other cars stop by our Elizabeth City dealership. Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Stop in for any of your auto or community needs, or feel free to give us a call at (252) 338-9100.

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt Runs for More Miles - 08/05/2015

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt Runs for More Miles
ELIZABETH CITY, NC – Chevy delivered what its customers wanted –– for the Chevrolet Volt to run for more miles. The new 2016 Volt gives drivers 53 miles of pure EV range, based off of the EPA testing. This is almost a 40 percent increase from the first-generation Volts.

The new Volt drivers are expected to use their battery power for about 90 percent of their trips compared to 80 percent with the first-generation Volt. This means that if the owners charge their new cars regularly they could easily drive over 1,000 miles between each gas fill up.

Owners of the new Volt will be able to drive the 53 miles of pure EV range with a full charge of the new 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery, rated at a combined 106MPGe, or gasoline equivalent. When the battery runs low the system simply switches over to a gas-powered generator to boost the driving range to 420 miles on a full tank.

The next-generation Volt also has a 1.5L range-extender, which uses regular unleaded fuel and gives the driver an EPA fuel efficiency of 42 MPG.

Statistics from the first Volt shows that customers exceeded the original EPA-estimated mileage, and Chevy expects that owners of the new Volt will do the same, especially since the 2016 Chevrolet Volt runs for more miles.

Stay tuned for more information on the 2016 Chevy Volt as its release nears! If you're ready to save big on fuel costs, come see us at our Outer Banks Area Chevrolet DealerPerry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Dodge To Increase Hellcat Production Due To Overwhelming Popularity - 07/29/2015

Dodge To Increase Hellcat Production Due To Overwhelming Popularity

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Following a report yesterday, Dodge will increase Hellcat production due to overwhelming popularity for the powerful muscle cars. Production for both the Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT will more than double for the 2016 model year, and the company will also simplify the ordering process to make it a lot easier for customers to purchase one of the monster, 707-horsepower vehicles.

An unprecedented amount of buzz has surrounded both the Challenger and Charger Hellcat models since their release, and popularity has spurred thanks to the universal success of the film Furious 7. This popularity led to a frustrating ordering process which included accepting deposits and orders despite a low-supply and without advising customers that their orders may not be filled.

In order to meet the immense demand, Dodge will be more than doubling SRT Hellcat production for 2016 and will make it easier for an impatient public to get their hands on the hottest muscle car in recent history. As a result of this, about 900 current orders for 2015 SRT Hellcats will be cancelled, however these customers will receive discounted 2016 model-year pricing on the new Hellcats.

Both of the Hellcat models– Charger and Challenger– receive minor standard enhancements for 2016, which include an ultra-premium Laguna Leather interior, Uconnect 8.4-inch infotainment screen with navigation, HD radio and five years of SiriusXM Travel Link and Sirius XM Traffic.

Even though current orders on 2015 Hellcat models have been canceled, Dodge will increase Hellcat production in 2016 due to overwhelming popularity. If you would like more information on how to put a deposit down for a 2016 Dodge Hellcat Charger or Challenger, feel free to give us a call at your Outer Banks Area Chevy Dealership! We do have 2015 Charger and 2015 Challenger models onsite if you would like to get the feel of what owning your very own Hellcat might be like! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

The 2016 Corvette Z06 Will Be On Its Way To Perry Auto Group Soon - 07/28/2015

The 2016 Corvette Z06 Will Be On Its Way To Perry Auto Group Soon

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Commence the face-melting, the 2016 Corvette Z06 will be on its way to Perry Auto Group soon! Is this the world's BEST sports car? Many auto industry-insiders believe it is! This vehicle launches itself into a category above Ferrari AND Lamborghini, while declaring to the world, "Don't mess with American muscle!"

The 2016 Corvette Z06 Will Be On Its Way To Perry Auto Group SoonWith a 0-60 mph time of 2.95 seconds– quicker than the amount of time it takes between rings on your cell phone– this car is horrifically fast, however, there is nothing at all terrifying about Chevy's 650-horsepower super car. The beautiful sports car impresses at every turn, whether you are just walking up to it, accelerating the throttle, turning or engaging the brakes. The engineers and technicians at General Motors have truly outdone themselves this time!

The 2016 Corvette Z06 not only flat-out OUTPERFORMS the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, Audi R8 Quattro V10 Spyder, Bentley Continental GT Speed, BMW M6, Ferrari California, Lamborghini Aventador, Mercedes SL65 AMG and Porsche 911 S turbo, but it comes in at anywhere between $30,000 to $100,000 LESS than these vehicles! The '16 Z06 also out-accelerates and has more horsepower than any of these sports cars.

The Z06 Corvette Convertible comes with a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine, which puts out 650 pound-feet of torque and 650 horsepower. The engine comes in either a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, and delivers game-changing power with a lovely sound. Reports state that the seven-speed manual is smooth with a light shifter and clutch effort, and short throws. Informative indicators in the heads-up display show what gear you are in.

For a sports car, the Z06 has a superb fuel economy rating of 15/22 city/hwy, for a combined fuel economy of 18 mpg, while also being the most powerful model in its class. The new 'Vette will also offer insanely powerful Brembo brakes that could stop the Flash himself mid-stride! The 2016 Corvette Z06 will be on its way to Perry Auto Group soon, and we cannot WAIT for it to get here. You can be sure that the second that trailer pulls into our Performance Chevy site, you'll be the first to know! At your Outer Banks Area Chevy Dealership, we offer the Perry Advantage Service Program to all of our truck buyers! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

2016 Chevy Camaro Is Rumored For An August 13th Release Date - 07/24/2015

2016 Chevy Camaro Is Rumored For An August 13th Release Date

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - For the automative world and car enthusiasts, 2015 is shaping up to be an unforgettable year! Recently, all eyes have been on the 2016 Sixth-Generation Chevy Camaro, since its Detroit reveal party back in May. Since then, buyers have been waiting for any news regarding a 2016 Camaro release date, and they may have just found the answer. Recently it has been revealed, via CamaroNews, that the 2016 Chevy Camaro is rumored for an August 13th release date! This means that in 24 days, potential customers can visit their local Chevy dealer (including Performance Chevrolet) and put cash down on their all-new 2016 Camaro.

The Chevrolet Camaro is an iconic vehicle whose first model was unveiled a near half century ago and was designed to specifically compete with the then popular, Ford Mustang. The pony-car has received acclaim world-wide and even passed its rival car sales in 2010, and because of this immense success, the vehicle has been reinvented six times over the years.

Thanks to a leaked document from CamaroNews, the 2016 Chevy Camaro is now rumored for an August 13th release date that cannot come soon enough! In the past Camaro has initially made the Coupe version of the muscle car available before the convertible version, and it is thought that the automaker will follow that same pattern with the sixth-generation model. According to CamaroNews, production for the new muscle car will begin the week of August 22, in Lansing, Mich.

Once we get an official word from Chevy on the confirmation of this release date, we will be sure to share it with you!

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The "Truck War" is starting to get crowded with contenders, and the most recent one from Ram just rolled off of the assembly line! Ram has just delivered a Ram 3500 with 900 lb-ft of torque! The torque truck battle has been quickly escalating, with new updates and launches coming almost weekly now from Ford and Chevy, and now FCA is throwing its hat into the ring!

This insane amount of torque will soon be available at Perry Auto Group (however, the exact date is still unknown) since the 2016 Ram 3500s have JUST rolled off the 'ole assembly line.

Last year, Ford Motor Company premiered a a revised Power Stroke diesel that would make the truck capable of 860 lb-ft of torque. No sooner had Ford made that announcement that Ram followed up with an 865 lb-ft of torque Cummins. To prove it is ready to TRULY dominate the class, the ante is upped once again now that Ram just delivered a Ram 3500 with 900 lb-ft of torque!

Not much else is really known about the all-new 2016 Ram 3500, however, we DO know that the truck will be making its way to dealerships as soon as possible! If you have been itching to get behind the wheel of a new or used Ram truck, stop by and take one of ours out for a test drive!

The Chevy Silverado Is Getting A Bold New Look For 2016 - 07/18/2015

The Chevy Silverado Is Getting A Bold New Look For 2016

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The Chevy Silverado is getting a bold new look for 2016, and the details definitely have sparked everyone's interest! The new pickup is sporting a freshened up look that adds a more muscular feel to the new truck. It's important that Chevy refreshed the Silverado mid-cycle because of the amount of competition currently clogging the mid-size truck segment in the United States.

The Silverado is the most important model in the Chevrolet lineup because it's Chevy's, and GM's, best selling vehicle. There is no arguing over the success of the Silverado when it comes to sales, as the numbers have spiked to up above 14.6% in the first half of 2015. Since the newest model was updated completely in 2013, sales have continually climbed just over 10% each year.

To make sure it keeps its crown as the best selling pickup, the Chevy Silverado is getting a bold new look for 2016. This includes a re-formed front end with more bolder, horizontal elements and a newly sculpted hood. Other updates will include wider availability of an 8-speed automatic transmission, and a completely retooled Chevy MyLink touch screen with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new display system will also use additional safety technologies, making the new truck one of the most technologically advanced models in its segment.

Sandor Piszar, marketing director of Chevy Trucks stated, "It will feature a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies." All of these new updated and re-designs allows the Silverado to completely take the Ford F-Series head on, especially since Ford has chosen to go with a more bendable, aluminum bodied truck this time around. Chevy has stuck with steel.

Chevrolet has not released information on when the new 2016 Silverado will roll into dealer lots, but we will definitely let you know when they get here! If all this talk about America's favorite pickup makes you want your own, stop by for a test drive in any of our new or used Chevy trucks, even the 2015 SilveradoPerry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - If you're a fan of Chrysler or 'Game of Thrones', listen up because Peter Dinklage, star of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' narrates new ads for Chrysler! Dinklage, who plays the fan-popular character Tyrion Lannister for the popular HBO drama, narrated five more 30-second Chrysler ads for the brand's 200 and 300 - midsize series.

The enticing ads use multiple literary works and passages from Jack Kerouac, Marcel Proust, William Wordsworth, Herman Mellville and Walph Waldo Emerson which is definitely a unique and creative twist to the summer Chrysler campaign. Take a look at the new ads below and tell us what you think!

 


All of the ads can be seen on Chrysler's YouTube page and will air over the course of the summer promoting the brand's summer clearance event. It is exciting to see the star of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' narrating new ads for Chrysler, seeing as Dinklage did so well with the previous FCA ads, "Drive Proud" and "The Kings and Queens of America".

Why Drowsy Driving Is Just As Dangerous As Drunk Driving - 07/10/2015

Why Drowsy Driving Is Just As Dangerous As Drunk Driving


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Many drivers today do not realize or understand the dangerous risk that is drowsy driving or driving fatigue. Drowsy driving slows reaction time, decreases awareness, impairs judgement and increases aggressiveness which is why drowsy driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving. These are the same signs associated with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and just like driving drunk, drowsy driving can cause mistakes behind the wheel that can injure or kill your or other motorists you share the road with.

Back in 2003, New Jersey passed Maggie's Law, named after a 20-year-old college student was hit and killed by a drowsy driver. This law states that a sleep-deprived driver qualifies as a reckless driver who can be convicted of vehicular homicide and serve jail time. While many states do not have such laws against drowsy driving, the problem has gotten more and more attention over the last few years.

Recently, the AAA Foundation for Traffic found that nine out of every 10 policemen in North America had stopped a driver who they thought was driving drunk, but turned out to be a drowsy driver instead. According to the Johns Hopkins Medical Center, drivers should be aware of these warning signs:
  • You cannot remember the last few miles driven.
  • You hit a rumble strip or drift from your lane.
  • You keep pulling your vehicle back into your lane. 
  • Your thoughts are wandering and disconnected.
  • You yawn repeatedly.
  • You have difficulty focusing or keeping your eyes open and your head up. 
  • You tailgate or miss traffic signs. 
  • You have barely avoided being in an accident. 
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, drowsiness or fatigue is the principal cause of up to 100,000 police-reported passenger vehicle crashes a year, with 1,500 resulting in death. It is important to understand why drowsy driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving, and that you should never get behind the wheel if you are having a problem keeping your eyes open and staying alert.

Why Are So Many Americans Buying A Jeep? - 07/07/2015

Why Are So Many Americans Buying A Jeep?

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Why are so many Americans buying a Jeep? How is it that back in the darkest days of the global financial crisis, Jeep could only muster a little over 200,000 annual vehicle sales in America and had little-to-no influence on the global market, but it's now becoming one of the fastest-growing automotive companies in the world? Currently, sales are expected to top out at 1.2 million– yes, MILLION– vehicles for 2015! That is outrageously good! Jeep just released its numbers for the month of June, and it is looking that the automaker is on track to meet its projections, and THEN some.

Last month, Jeep enjoyed its best June sales in the 74-year history of the company, selling 71,529 vehicles in the United States! Leading the way for the brand was the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Patriot and the Jeep Wrangler, which all had their best June sales month ever! The all-new Jeep Renegade (now in its third month of sales) had a 10 percent uptick from May, which is a sign that the smallest crossover in the company may be starting to catch on.

Jeep's successful June was the driving force behind Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' strongest June sales since 2006. So why are so many Americas buying a Jeep? There are potentially several reasons, but low gas prices are definitely one of the leading factors. The entire crossover and small SUV segments have been on the rise the entire year due to lower gas prices and the confidence of Americans that a crossover or small SUV has now become affordable. The Jeep brand OWNS these segments. Jeep has also rebranded itself, and has focused its marketing towards Millennials and Generation Z, thus creating a brand loyalty at a young age.

It is so exciting to see one of our favorite auto companies taking off! Here at your local Norfolk Area Jeep Dealer, we have TONS of new and used Jeeps to see! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

How Chevy Is Making It Harder To Steal A Vehicle - 07/01/2015

How Chevy Is Making It Harder To Steal A Vehicle


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - GM has recently announced how Chevy is making it harder to steal a vehicle with the new Theft Alarm Notification feature on its OnStar Stolen Vehicle Assistance program. The new service will be available to eligible subscribers later this summer, and will help prompt a swift response from OnStar advisors and local authorities whenever a vehicle is stolen or broken into.

This new extension of the Stolen Vehicle Assistance feature is only the most recent in a series of new updates to the system that include Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown. With the new Theft Alarm Notification, subscribers can choose to receive alerts via SMS test, email or by phone if a theft attempt triggers their vehicle's alarm system and the alarm sounds.

This new technology is currently an OnStar and Chevy specialized feature, and it is so exciting to see how Chevy is making it harder to steal a vehicle. The system is backed by glass breakage sensors, interior motion sensors and an inclination/tilt sensor, which will sound an alarm if the vehicle is lifted up off the ground, a break-in is attempted or if motion is detected within the vehicle when the system is armed.

Chevy is always breaking the mold with innovative features, and the Theft Alarm Notification feature will be sure to deter auto theft in the next few years. If you would like to stop by and test drive any of our Chevy OnStar equipped vehicles, feel free to stop by your Outerbanks Chevy Dealer today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Dodge Unleashed The Hemi-Powered Challenger Drag Pak To The Masses - 06/30/2015

Dodge Unleashes A Hemi-Powered Challenger Drag Pack To The Masses


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Earlier this year, Dodge released the all new Challenger Hellcat and the Charger Hellcat to the delight of a patiently waiting public. The Challengers can partially thank their popularity to the Furious 7 film, which is one of the highest grossing films in history, grossing $1.3 billion since its release in April. Now, drivers can be more like their favorite Fast and Furious stars since Dodge unleashed a hemi-powered Challenger Drag Pak to the masses!

The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is a race-prepped version of Dodge's two-door muscle car that is built specifically for drag racing. Let the burnouts begin! The Challenger is a vehicle that is steeped in racing history and lore. The dominating muscle cars of the 1960s and 19702 made their reputations not just with an unmatched power and timeless styling, but also with dominance on the track. Now the Challenger is back to claim its top-spot and seek glory in the racing world.

Racers can choose between two different V8 Hemi engines. The 354-cubic-inch supercharged V8 features the same displacement as the first production HEMI, whereas the naturally aspirated 426-ci version recalls the now-classic motor used in numerous Chrysler Corporation race and road vehicles from the '60s. Both of the engines are powered by a racing-tuned automatic transmission, and the Drag Pak includes multiple chassis upgrades such as bulked up suspension and brakes, 15-inch lightweight wheels and Hoosier drag radials.

The Drag Pak is designed to compete in National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-sanctioned drag races in the Sportman category, and we cannot WAIT to see it tearing up the track now that Dodge unleashed the Hemi-powered Challenger Drag Pak to the masses! If you feel like you would like to give either the Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger a try, stop by your Norfolk Area Dodge Dealer for a test drive today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

General Motors Reveals The New 2016 Chevy Cruze - 06/25/2015

General Motors Reveals The New 2016 Chevy Cruze

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Last night the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze was revealed to a crowd of auto-insiders, press and writers at the Fillmore Theater in Downtown Detroit. General Motors reveals the new 2016 Chevy Cruze is longer, lighter and gets 40 mpg from its 1.4-liter, four-cylinder Ecotec turbo engine. The 2016 Cruze will pull into dealerships in the spring of next year, and is currently the fifth newly designed model that Chevrolet has released this year. The goal for Chevy is restoring that reputation of ingenuity and excitement the brand had in 1950s and '60s.

Since the beginning of the year, Chevrolet has unveiled redesigns for Volt, Camaro, Malibu and the Spark, and the reveal of the all-new 2016 Cruze was just as successful as the earlier models. GM CEO Mary Barra was on hand and took the cover off of the new Cruze Wednesday night to the delight of those in attendance.

General Motors reveals that the new 2016 Chevy Cruze will weigh in at about 250 pounds less than the '15 model, accomplished through a retooled aluminum engine block. This block is made by press-hardened steel, which is a process of heating steal blanks until they become malleable. Bumper-to-bumper, the new Cruze is lengthened by 2.7 inches, which gives 2 more inched of legroom in the rear-seat.

As with it's other Chevrolet models, GM infuses the new Cruze with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, which customers have the option of purchasing. A modern style theme, similar to that of the new Impala and Malibu, gives the Cruze a more premium look which John Cafaro, Executive Director of Chevrolet Design, says is and example of craftsmanship, content, quality and a fresh interpretation on an unmistakable Chevy identity.

It will be an exciting day when the 2016 Chevy Cruze rolls into our dealership– we cannot WAIT to see it!

The 2016 Chevy Volt Could Get 43 MPG And A 106MPGe - 06/19/2015

The 2016 Chevy Volt Could Get 43 MPG And A 106MPGe

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - General Motors has not been cheap when it comes to the amount of news the automotive company has been releasing in regards to the 2016 Chevy Volt. This includes a lower price ($33,995 which is $1,175 cheaper than the 2015 model) and specifications on the upgraded Voltec drivetrain. However one thing Volt enthusiasts have been anxious about is the official EPA MPG and MPGe numbers. After digging around, we might have found out that those official numbers might be higher than originally anticipated.

After searching through the GM-Volt forum, it was noticed that under fuel economy, the numbers were changed from 41 MPG as quoted by GM to 43 MPG. This in turn brings the MPGe ratings (using combined electric driving range and gas engine) all the way up to 106 MPGe, compared to the 37 MPG and 98 MPGe for the current 2015 Volt.  Although this is not necessarily set in stone, it is so exciting that the 2016 Chevy Volt could get 43 MPG and a 106MPGe! It looks like the total driving range has gone from 420 miles to 430, then back down to 420 miles.

GM does not plan to release the official fuel economy numbers until sometime next month, even though you can make a deposit to GM to reserve your 2016 Volt in early adopter states like California. Just the fact that the 2016 Chevy Volt could get 43 MPG and a 106MPGe, is thrilling to say the least! You can bet, however, that Perry Auto Group will have all the latest news and updates regarding the 2016 Chevy Volt, and you could always stop by and take a test drive in our current 2015 modelsPerry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Ram Dives Head First Into The Luxury Truck Pool - 06/13/2015

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - In the world of luxury trucks there are few, but Ram dives head first into the luxury truck pool with the Ram Rebel and the Laramie. The demand for pick-up trucks with the interior of a luxury SUV is interestingly on the rise, and Ram is definitely taking the challenge head on. Both of the truck models are priced understandably high at over $50,000, but it makes sense when all of the features are considered.

Let's start with the Ram Rebel (we have to admit, we're OBSESSED with the name!), which is a workhorse that's been completely optimized to do well on less-than-friendly terrain. Upgrades include a factory lift, skid plates and tow hooks over the stock Ram 1500, plus the name "RAM" has been emphasized and embossed at every available opportunity. The Rebel's main competition includes the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and Ford's F-150 Raptor.

Ram Dives Head First Into The Luxury Truck Pool

The Laramie comes equipped with a 5.7 liter V8 rear-wheel drive, and will have a starting base cost of just over $51,000. Ram indeed highlights the fact that the new Laramie Limited is more geared for well-heeled suburban chrome enthusiasts than cattle famers who would use the truck for actual "truck" work. However, this is a rapidly growing segment. Many people want to have the look and attitude of a pick-up truck, but the luxury of a first class suburban-like car. The premium feature list is long, and includes things such as all-black leather seating, real wood interior components and unique badges. When all is said and done, the Laramie could potentially run anyone just over $57,000 with the diesel and 4x4, before the pick-and-choose options are applied.

Ram Dives Head First Into The Luxury Truck Pool

Ram dives head first into the luxury truck pool, and is not alone as it joins with Ford Motor Co. as the the only automaker with a full-size truck that doesn't offer a midsize alongside it. You can bet that Perry Auto is your spot for all of the Ram truck models! Feel free to stop and take one out for a test drive today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

The Dodge Brothers Take You Back To The Beginning In Their New Ads - 06/12/2015

The Dodge Brothers Take You Back To The Beginning In Their New Ads

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The Dodge Brothers take you back to the beginning in their new ads, with the initial "First Dodge" (shown below) showing how the competitive spirit of John and Horace Dodge developed early on. The four new ads highlight the 2015 Dodge Dart and Durango as well as the Scat Pack trims of the Challenger and Charger, and were directed by Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody.


The first 60-second ad shown above shows how this competitive spirit from the Dodge boys developed early on as the brothers see a young boy with a bike and decide to make an even better concocting bike of their own, the first vehicle they ever built.

Widen+Kennedy produced the four ads, which will air on cable broadcast channels during prime-time sports and entertainment programming such as NASCAR races, Major League Baseball and "Undercover Boss". The ads also include social media components that allow Facebook, Instagram and Twitter users to follow the #DodgeBrothers hashtag. The ads will not air until October.

As Chief Marketing Officer of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Olivier Francois stated, "Today's Dodge vehicles have the same passion for performance as John and Horace Dodge established in the first vehicles they crafted more than one hundred years ago."

As more ads come out, you can bet we'll be showcasing them on our Facebook page! We have TONS of 2015 Dodge vehicles at Perry Auto Brothers. If you would like to take a test drive in the ad-featured Dodge Dart, feel free to stop by! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Warm Weather Car Care Tips - 06/04/2015

Warm Weather Car Care Tips


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Warm weather can be tough on your vehicle, especially here in North Carolina. Intense heat can destroy batteries and put stress on the tires and cooling system. Thanks to the lowest summer gas prices since 2009, many Americans will be hitting the road this summer for vacation, and to insure a safe trip you may want to check out these warm weather car care tips. By making sure your vehicle is running smoothly you can avoid breakdowns or car problems that will definitely put a thorn in your summer plans.
  • Heat zaps life away from your battery.  Many car owners believe that battery problems only occur in the winter, which could not be more wrong. Heat and vibration are the two WORST things for a car battery, and ultimately lead to engine failure. If you car's battery is more than three years old, make sure to have it checked by a certified technician before heading out on the road. 
  • Maintain and check up on your air conditioning. NOTHING, and we mean nothing, is worse than the air conditioning going out in the middle of the summer. Driving around in a car when it's 80+ degrees out is hard enough on your vehicle. Take out the air conditioning and good luck trying to go anywhere fast. Even a marginally operating system will fail in the hot weather, so have your air conditioning checked out by a qualified technician. 
  • The greatest cause of summer breakdowns is cooling system failure. The cooling system should be completely flushed out and refilled every two years. Be sure that you understand the level, condition and concentration of the coolant should also be checked periodically, especially when it first starts to warm up after the long winter. 
  • Check your windshield wipers. Your windshield wipers have been working overtime since January. A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can also pose a safety hazard. Replace worn windshield wiper blades and have plenty of windshield wiper fluid handy. 
  • Your brakes have been working hard all winter, make sure they're okay! Your brakes have kept you from sliding off the road since January, so make sure they are up to par before you head out this summer. If you notice pulsations, grabbing noises or longer stopping distances, bring your vehicle to see a certified technician ASAP. 
Just a quick, 20-minute once over can mean the difference between a fun and relaxing family vacation or being stuck in the middle of nowhere with no air conditioning, waiting for the tow truck. NO FUN! Feel free to share these warm weather car care tips with your friends or family! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Feel free to call us with any questions at (252) 338-9100.
