Now that triple digit temperatures are firmly in place, one of the least favorite things for most people to do is wander a car lot looking for a new vehicle. Although the pros at any of the Chapman Arizona dealerships are happy to help you find the vehicle of your dreams and cool it down before you take a test drive, sometimes you just want to look around, touch some buttons and enjoy that new car smell. As luck would have it, just a little more than an hour up the road in the cool pines of Payson is the Chapman Payson Auto Center, your home for new Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles, as well as a healthy assortment of used cars, trucks and SUVs.

Take Your Time to Peruse the Inventory

Plan a weekend trip to the mountains where you can enjoy the delights of biscuits and gravy at a local diner, then take your time to wander the lot at Chapman Payson and pick a few vehicles to test drive. Right now, Chapman Payson is offering sizzling summer deals on new Chevy vehicles, with huge discounts off suggested retail prices. You can save almost $7,000 on a 2017 Chevy Tahoe 4×4 LT, with additional savings on the popular Chevy Sonic and Cruze. Head to the Chapman Payson website before you go to get pre-qualified for financing. You can also get a quick look at the entire inventory before heading north.

Pick Up a Jeep Before Exploring the Rim

If you’ve never been to the Mogollon Rim and White Mountains, you’re in for a treat. It’s a different world from the desert, with huge Ponderosa pines, an abundance of wildlife, cool mountain streams and plenty of things to do. If you plan on exploring the back country, a new Jeep is the perfect vehicle to get you where you want to go. Whether you choose the iconic Wrangler, luxurious Jeep Grand Cherokee or the new Compass, the Jeep four-wheel drive system gives you the traction and control to tame even the toughest trails.

Even if you’re not in the market for a new or used vehicle, the Chapman Payson Service Center can be a welcome oasis if your vehicle starts to act up. Along with regular maintenance, the technicians at Chapman Payson are trained to work on any make or model vehicle. You can even drop your car off for an oil change and then take some time to walk around the friendly mom and pop boutiques that make up downtown Payson.

New Equinox a Compact Crossover With Bite

There’s an old saying that, “you seen one crossover, you’ve seen them all.” Ok, maybe it’s a relatively new saying, but you have to admit the plethora of crossover vehicles pretty much all look the same. Then there’s the new Chevy Equinox, a crossover that’s been flying under the radar for most shoppers until it’s total redesign this year. Motor Trend says the new version of the Equinox is “ready to take a bite out of the rapidly growing compact crossover pie.” See why when you take a test drive at Chapman Payson.

New Equinox Provides ‘Pleasant Drive’

If you’re looking for something perfect for both weekend excursions and your daily commute, consider the new Chevy Equinox. Motor Trend says Chevy’s compact crossover is “pleasant to drive, thanks to its quiet cabin and a comfortable ride on all but the roughest surfaces.” Optional 19-inch alloy wheels help absorb the pot holes and variety of surfaces in the Rim country. Stable handling keeps you in control on those remote switchbacks.

Chevy Infotainment System Easy to Use

Once you step inside the cabin of the Chevy Equinox, you’ll really start to notice the difference from other crossover brands. Motor Trend loves the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, calling it “one of the easiest in-car multimedia interfaces to use with its responsive touchscreen and intuitive voice commands.” You can choose either a 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen, depending on the trim package. The larger screen includes navigation. The Equinox seems like a much more expensive vehicle thanks to the use of premium materials by quality craftspeople. Available features include a heated steering wheel, a Bose premium sound system and heated and ventilated front seats.

Generous Amounts of Room

Chevy has eliminated a center tunnel in the second row, providing plenty of room for five adults to stretch out. With almost 30 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and even more room under the floor, there’s plenty of options to haul your weekly groceries or stow away the kids’ soccer equipment. A power liftgate is available on the more expensive trim packages, a handy feature when your hands are full.

Ten Advanced Safety Technologies Offered

Equinox has 10 different safety technologies available to help make sure you and your precious cargo arrive at your destination unharmed. Low speed forward automatic braking is one example, where the system senses an imminent collision at slow speeds and applies to the brakes to help avoid or lessen the impact. A rear vision camera, rear park assist, blind zone alert and lane change alert are just a few of the other safety features designed to get you through your trip unharmed. See all the features of the new Chevy Equinox and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Payson.


New Demon Priced at About 100 Bucks a Horse

While the suggested list price of $84,995 will put the new Dodge Demon Challenger out of the reach of some buyers, when you consider that number comes down to about a hundred dollars a horse, it doesn’t sound that bad. The Demon is simply the most powerful production car on the planet, delivering 840 horsepower. For one dollar more, Dodge is offering a variety of accessories, including a front passenger seat, rear seat and Demon trunk carpet kit. The Demon is offered in a limited production run, so check in early with Chapman Payson for a chance to get your hands on this king of the road.

“Eighty-five thousand dollars is not just a number in a business case to Dodge; we know it’s a lot of money and a significant up-charge over a Challenger Hellcat,” said Dodge passenger car boss Tim Kuniskis. The Hellcat whet the appetite of muscle car fans everywhere a couple of years ago when it came on the scene with a then-record 707 horsepower. “We worked very hard to build as much value into the Challenger SRT Demon as possible – features, performance and exclusivity that simply can’t be duplicated with a goal of maintaining, and possibly even growing, as much future value as possible.”

Dodge Demon Delivers a Lot of Firsts

The new Dodge Demon offers a lot of firsts to go along with the amazing horsepower numbers. It is the first production car with the ability to do a wheelie and the first vehicle you can buy off the showroom floor that has posted a 9.65 second time in the quarter mile. It also provides the most g’s ever, registering 1.8 g at launch. With that much power comes a lot of responsibility to keep the engine cool, which is why the Dodge engineers developed an Air-Grabber induction setup that uses liquid to cool the air, and ultimately, the motor.

Demon Crate Best Buy for a Dollar

The price on the Demon may be high, but Dodge is offering a lot of accessories for just a dollar. The Demon Crate package is a phenomenal buy for just a buck, with a total value of more than $6,000. It includes narrow front drag wheels, a performance powertrain module that calibrates the engine for high octane use, an entire suite of Demon brand track tools including a hydraulic floor jack, and a foam case that holds all those accessories. Remember, if you like the Challenger but aren’t sure you need the high price tag or all that horsepower, Dodge provides a number of trim levels for every price point. Check out the Challenger inventory today at Chapman Payson.

Offering non-apologetic, heart racing power that’s designed to both thrill and reward, the new 707-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk pushes the limits of driving dynamics. The Trackhawk not only has the power, but also the responsive handling to nimbly get you from Point A to Point B quicker than any other SUV, and most sports cars, on the planet. Stay in touch with Chapman Payson to see when you can test drive the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

New Trackhawk Just Daring You to Drive

Slip behind the wheel of the Trackhawk and you’ll feel like you’re stepping into a dare. With a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that delivers both phenomenal horsepower and spine-bending torque, you’ll get an adrenaline rush before you ever push the start button. Engage launch mode for superior traction and a blast-off that delivers driving thrills normally reserved for the dragstrip. With a super modified cooling system you’ll keep your Trackhawk within optimal temperatures during even the hottest Arizona summer day. A special high-performance braking system from industry leader Brembo means you’ll stop as quickly as you accelerate.

Bolstered Seats Keep You in Place

Whether you’re on a deserted mountain road or schedule some time at the track, the G forces delivered by the powerful Trackhawk require some getting used to. With large seat bolsters to keep you firmly in place, you can put the Trackhawk through its paces with confidence. Choose the Laguna leather interior for a touch of sophistication that doesn’t come with most beasts this powerful. For the record, the Trackhawk will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, which will either make you the most popular or most feared driver in the office carpool.

Enjoy Your Hellcat on Steroids

If you’ve been salivating over the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat editions, the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk does utilize the same monster HEMI engine, but there are some major differences between the vehicles. The Trackhawk employs a limited slip differential with much shorter gearing than the Challenger or Charger. The result is an ability to tow up to 7,200 pounds, which will make this the most popular tow vehicle at the campground. The Trackhawk also has driver-selectable Tow and Snow modes, which give you more precise handling depending on the task at hand. The Jeep also has a higher oil capacity than the Dodge cars, holding a whopping 8.3 quarts. That means there will be plenty of lubricant when it comes time to utilize the all-wheel drive or tow your trailer. The Trackhawk is a limited production vehicle, so make sure and stay in touch with Chapman Payson for your chance to test drive the King of the SUVs.
