Limited 4X4 shown
- $11,812 - $13,014
- No trim specified for this review
- Great bargin for entry-level lux ute. A real head-turner. 5 Star Exterior.
- No touch-screen navigation. Does not feel like 335hp should. Unimpressive seats. 3 Star Interior.
Have had my Aspen for a little over two weeks and I love this truck! One of the neatest things about this truck is it's ability to turn heads. Although being low, if not last, on my list of things to accomplish when buying a new vehicle, it is rather nice to have that "look-at-me" feeling about your vehicle. I believe that this turck turns more heads than Escalades and Land Rovers. Although the Aspen is no substitute for either of these status-symbol trucks, I found my Aspen, fully loaded, late in the 07 model year for about $10K off MSRP, that's a tricked-out truck for a little north of $35 grand. All things considered, I'll accept the few areas where the Aspen falls short of it's more revered competitors.
For instance, The Navigation System.
-Why is this thing not a touch screen and couldn't Chrysler have found a better control than their little dial for selection? It takes several minutes to enter a new address, unacceptable!
The Front Seats.
-My friend has a Dodge Ram 1500 with softer and more supportive seats than are available in the Aspen. WHY SO MOPAR?
Second Row Legroom
-I accept that this is not a full size vehicle, just a very large mid-size ute. That said, I should be estatic that a third row is even available. However, why should the third row have nearly as much leg room as the second-seat buckets? The second row should sit an inch or two deeper in the cabin, no one really needs a spacious third row anyhow, or if they do, buy a Suburban or an extended van, or a school bus. The second row will get regular use from my golfing buddies, clients, etc. and I wish it would've offered more room.
Beyond these minor gripes, this is a great truck. With sales being a bit slow on this ute, dealers seem to be more willing to help move these models than other SUVs in the Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep family. If one compares this truck to other vehicles in it's price range; this may be one of the best bargins out there. Although the exterior may be as attractive, if not more, than the Cadillac's, Land Rovers, Mercedes, of the world, it's not in the same class. But then again, Chrysler isn't any of these names. Besides, where else can you find a large SUV, with 20" wheels, leather, moon roof, navigation, sattelite, and a V8 for well under $40 grand?
I've got the best "bargin" in town.
