Who says Chrysler Group is only known for its trucks and SUVs?
The pending launch of the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart this quarter combined with amazing growth in our car sales -- lead by the Chrysler 200 -- means that the company's reputation for trucks and SUVs will need to be reconsidered by many.
Chrysler Group's March 2012 sales were again lead by our cars -- with a 53% growth compared to March 2011 for a total of 51,514 sold.

In Part 1 of the story, Jeep® Blog chronicled the capability of the stock 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport on one of the most difficult trails at the 46th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. In the second part, the stock Jeep Wrangler Sport ascends to the top of the Cliffhanger trail, earning a new fan along the way.

At the 46th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep Blog spent a day navigating Cliffhanger, one of the toughest (but most rewarding) trails in Moab.

Neatly integrated into the Dart's center console bin, the cordless charger is compatible with iPhone, Blackberry, Android, and other popular mobile platforms. A fitted case tailored to the specific device is required and included with the charger at a preliminary list price of $199.99 plus installation.
