All-new 2015 Chrysler 200
Of particular importance, the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 will make its north Texas debut. The all-new Chrysler 200 lays the groundwork for the future of the Chrysler brand with an exceptional driving experience, fuel economy up to 35 mpg highway, a segment-first standard nine-speed automatic transmission and exquisite craftsmanship. The vehicle features a timeless, elegant design; clever functionality and class-leading interior space; a best-in-class all-wheel-drive system; best-in-segment safety and security features with over 60 offerings; and a host of new technologies with a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of $21,700.

2014 Ram Trucks and Indoor Test Track
Auto-show goers will get the chance to see Ram trucks in action with the first-ever indoor Ram Test Track. Within the 25,000 square-foot display, participants will get to ride in the award-winning Ram lineup and see the trucks' capabilities put to the test while getting a bird's-eye view of the auto show from the top of Ram Mountain. Among the vehicles on display will be the 28 mpg 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, named Motor Trend magazine's "Truck of the Year" and given the highest honor by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) as the "Truck of Texas." For those that need even bigger trucks, the 2014 Ram 2500 with an all-new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 will be on the show floor along with the Ram ProMaster, Ram's latest entry into the full-size cargo van segment. 

2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad, 100th Anniversary Charger and More
Fresh from its debut at the Chicago Auto Show, Dodge will introduce the new 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad to Texas. The Journey Crossroad features distinctive new front and rear fascias, Platinum Chrome side sills and unique 19-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels that give the three-row, seven-passenger crossover a rugged and more capable look. The interior is loaded with premium finishes and features including the 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, power driver's seat, fold-flat front passenger seat with hidden storage bin, Liquid Graphite interior appliques and new leather seat design with sport mesh inserts.  The 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad has a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of $24,995 excluding $995 destination.  Dodge also will showcase the new 2014 Dodge Charger 100th Anniversary Edition, the 2014 Dodge Dart Blacktop and the popular throw-back 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker model.

The Chrysler Drive
Auto show attendees can get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles from Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and FIAT for a no-pressure, no-hassle test-drive just outside the 2014 DFW Auto Show.  This hands-on event will help consumers experience the highly capable trucks, SUVs and cars available from the Chrysler Group.  It also serves as an opportunity to showcase new designs and demonstrate unique state-of-the-art innovations in action, including the Uconnect multimedia infotainment system, Stow 'n Go seating and storage system, HEMI engines, rear park assist and more.
