FCA FLEET EVENT PUTS PEDAL TO THE METAL
Toronto area fleet customers were treated to FCA’s 2016 Full Throttle Tour held at the Pearson Convention Centre on September 22. The event featured product information sessions on the Ram 1500, Dodge Journey and Jeep Cherokee as well as an opportunity to experience the comfort, ride and handling characteristics of a variety of FCA products on the specially designed drive course.
During the event, Ken Tuckey, Senior Manager, National Fleet and Commercial Vehicles for FCA announced that production for the fleet favorite Dodge Caravan would continue to 2019 as well as shared news about a new SXT AWD V6 version of one of Canada's leading crossovers, the Journey, due out later this year.
“FCA Canada’s recent Fleet Training event in Toronto was a great success,” said Ken Tuckey, Head of Fleet Operations, FCA Canada. “We had an impressive number of Commercial account and Fleet Management Company representatives join us. We were able to share some exciting news with them on the versatile Dodge Journey. The new Journey SXT AWD trim level reduces the cost of acquiring an all-wheel drive model to well under $30,000. This is great news for companies who need sure-footed handling at an affordable price to tackle Canada’s harsh winters. Our event provided both vehicle walk-arounds and a drive component in Journey, as well as Jeep Cherokee and Ram 1500. We’re looking to repeat this event’s success in Montreal, Calgary and Edmonton soon.”
Ken Tuckey, FCA, brought event attendees up to date on the company's fleet performance for 2016.
