Do we need another big SUV? apparently Chrysler does, as is actually the first SUV to display a badge. And being a premium, brand, the Chrysler SUV also has to be big and in order to compete with the of the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln

There#8217;s not a huge market for type of vehicle in Canada. I was (on the quiet) that the company only expects each to sell one or two. Dealers to see customers walk across the to buy, a type of vehicle they don#8217;t offer, a competitor.

#8220;Loaded with premium fuel-saving Multi-displacement System and best-in-class horsepower, torque and room, Chrysler Aspen is a SUV where beauty is backed brawn,#8221; according to Scott

Its brawn comes from a Hemi V8 engine with a System (MDS). The engine alternates between a four-cylinder to conserve fuel, and the full V8 when more power is

Just one version of the Aspen be sold in Canada, compared to variations in the U.S. We get the very equipped top-line Limited There are options though, and include the Sirius Satellite system, a navigation system, a Video entertainment system, a start system (on key fob), a tow package, with a 3.92 ratio, and a #8220;UConnect#8221; hands-free system.

The Aspen#8217;s big grille was inspired by the V10-powered Chronos concept car that at the North American International Show back in 1998. The appearance is still a little subdued than an Escalade, but still no doubt that vehicle has presence.

The Aspen shares its separate-frame chassis and drivetrain with the Durango. It#8217;s a heavy (over 2300 kg) with a max capacity of 3,969 kg (with tow package). That#8217;s better the Escalade and on par with the Navigator.

the Aspen is spacious and has three of seats, an eight-speaker surround-sound system with a subwoofer and the capacity is 1,937 litres the third row folded.

Roll-overs are a safety concern for all because of their high of gravity. So, in addition to the usual of passive safety features, the has side-curtain air bags with a technology. The stability control (called ESP) also has an active safety component Electronic Roll Mitigation

If a potential roll-over condition is this system takes evasive action.

The Aspen has a transfer case that an all-wheel-drive (AWD) mode four-wheel-drive high, and low range. In AWD mode, the drive system has a bias with a 48/52 split between the two axles.

The price-tag on the new Chrysler Aspen is its most intriguing virtue as over $20,000 less a Navigator or an Escalade. Although is less of an issue in this of vehicle, that#8217;s still a chunk of change #8211; or big of bling!
