New Dodge Ad Campaign Celebrates 100 Years with Dodge Brothers

While it has been 100 years since John and Horace Dodge created the Dodge Brothers Motor Car Company, their spirits still live on in a brand new Dodge ad campaign that is sure to take you back in time. Called “Ballroom—They Dreamed Big,” this new commercial spot for the 2015 Dodge Challenger is the first advertisement in a series that travels through time, back to the days when Dodge first began.

“Dodge has a very specific DNA, a bloodline that traces back to the Dodge brothers’ passion for making great cars,” said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer for Chrysler Group. “The new campaign captures the spirit of innovation and enthusiasm the Dodge brothers had when they founded the brand 100 years ago. Everything Dodge does today honors John and Horace Dodge’s legacy. Their spirit lives on through this campaign and the Dodge vehicles of today.”

The commercial focuses on an imaginary celebration of John and Horace’s success. During the rousing, flapper-filled party, a voiceover describes how the brothers came to create the car company, ending with a shot of the new 2015 Challenger revving its engine amongst two 1915 Dodge Touring cars.

Challenger Hellcat Will Return 22 MPG HWY

When you’ve got a vehicle that promises 707 horsepower and promises the potential to burn through 1.5 gallons of gasoline every minute that you run it at full throttle, it’s reasonable to stand back from all that information and guess that you’re probably not going to be getting very good gas mileage.

Good news if you’re one such individual crazy enough to think they can handle the madness that is the Challenger Hellcat: it’s actually not that bad on fuel economy, returning 21 mpg hwy with the six-speed manual transmission and 22 mpg hwy with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic.

“The new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the perfect street / strip muscle car,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands. “As the fastest muscle car ever, the Challenger Hellcat can run 10-second ETs at the track, and then get 22 miles per gallon on the drive home. With a starting price of $59,995, there’s nothing else that even comes close.”

Truer words were never spoken. In comparison: the Lamborghini Aventador will set you back $425,845, generate 700 horsepower, and return 18 mpg highway.

What does that tell us? If you’ve got the money to buy an Aventador, then you should just buy seven Challenger Hellcats. While we might not be able to get you seven of them, come talk to our sales specialists at Corwin Dodge to see how you can go about making the Hellcat yours. Trust us: don’t think that you can control it, because you can only hope to contain it.

Dodge Viper May Get Supercharged V10 Engine

If you thought the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was powerful, wait until we tell you the rumors we’ve heard this week. Apparently, Dodge might be working to produce a Viper with a supercharged V10 engine, which could bring the performance vehicle’s power up to a whopping 800 hp.

If rumors are right, we might see the Viper supercharged with a V10 engine; increasing its horsepower to 800!

Automotive journalists at Allpar have had at least two sources confirm that supercharged V10 engines were recently delivered to Chrysler Group.

Currently, the Viper offers 640 hp when outfitted with its naturally-aspirated 8.4-liter V10 engine. Adding the supercharged power could raise that already impressive number by 120 horsepower. That is, of course, if the transmission, block, and other internal parts could handle all that power. We wouldn’t be surprised if the new engine requires the automaker to re-configure its current mechanics.

We at Corwin Dodge will keep our ears peeled for any more news or hints as to what the new Dodge Viper could have in store for performance enthusiasts. For now, we’ll be dreaming of 800 hp.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Opportunity Village, a Vegas-based non-profit organization.

The auction will benefit a non-profit organization in Vegas, Opportunity Village.

The new owner will not only receive the iconic vehicle with Viper-exclusive Stryker Red exterior paint, but he or she will also receive custom memorabilia, special badging, and official vehicle identification number (VIN) documentation.

On top of that, the Hellcat is the fastest, most powerful muscle car in the industry. The new owner will be able to enjoy all the perks that come with the car’s dynamic driving experience.

“With 707 horsepower, the 2015 Dodge Hellcat is more than just the most powerful muscle car built by an American manufacturer,” said Craig Jackson, Barrett-Jackson Auction Company chairman and CEO.

Separate Key Fob Unlocks 707 Horsepower in 2015 Dodge Challenger

The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT will feature Dodge’s most powerful V8 ever, making it both the most powerful Challenger ever built and the most powerful muscle car ever.

Under the hood, the 2015 Challenger will boast a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® Hellcat engine, cranking out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.

It’s the first factory supercharged HEMI and Dodge’s first application of V8 supercharger technology. Such is its power that Dodge has taken upon itself to offer buyers not one but two standard key fobs—one red and one black.

The black fob is benign enough. When used to start the engine, it will be reduced to a “mild” 500 horsepower output. When the red fob is used, the Challenger SRT’s full horsepower and torque potential is unlocked.

We’re not sure if making two fobs to separate the 500 and 707 horsepower experiences was necessary, but we imagine it will lend itself to quite a bit of fun—like when pressing a big red button to make something incredible happen. Just bust out your red key fob and hear the engine roar in response.

Find the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT at Corwin Dodge later this year and check out the muscle for yourself.

2014 Dodge Challenger Earned a Best Retained Value Award

Reliability and dependability are common buzzwords that are used to describe items that last a long time. In the automotive world, though, they mean something a little more than just a description. Those factors can help lead to awards, and from there can lead to high sales. For instance, the 2014 Dodge Challenger earned a Best Retained Value Award from Edmunds.com, which shows how dependable and reliable it is.

When the 2014 Dodge Challenger earned a Best Retained Value Award, it meant a lot of things. It meant that customers who purchase this midsize/large coupe, the segment in which it won the award, are extremely satisfied and the resale value is high.

Dodge Brand Celebrates 100 Years in Style

Dodge Brand Turning 100

This summer, the Dodge brand will officially be 100 years old, but isn’t showing any signs of age. The brand kicked off the celebrations at the New York Auto Show with a dynamic video showcasing some great centenarians sharing some words of wisdom and showing a bit of a wild side.

A lot of the century celebration is focused on the refreshed 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger—two key cars in the Dodge lineup.

Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge brand, talked about why the refresh of these two models is so important, “It is extremely important to what Dodge is. Combined Charger/Challenger sales are 150,000 units per year out of 600,000. People identify with the brand as a result of these two cars.”

To help promote these two cars and continue the Dodge birthday party, Dodge will be headed out this year on the Dodge Power Rallye Tour. This tour will head across the country to more than 50 events this summer, including state fairs, music festivals, art shows, and more. The tour will feature test drives for the public and showcase the 100th anniversary models of the Challenger and Charger and 30th anniversary model of the Caravan.

If you’re looking forward to the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger that come out later this year, consider the Double Up program, where you can lease a 2014 Charger or Challenger and trade it in for the 2015 model next year at no additional charge.

Head over to Corwin Dodge today and take a look at our wide selection of 2014 Dodge Charger and Challenger models available now.

New Double Up Program Gives You a Head Start on 2015 Muscle Cars

If you can’t wait for the new 2015 Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger launching later this year, boy have we got a deal for you with the New Double Up Program.

New Double Up Program from Dodge
Lease a 2014 Dodge Charger this year, and come back in 12 months to lease the 2015 model for the same payment price using the new Double Up Program from Dodge.

Behold the “Double-Up” program: from now until the end of August 2014, eligible customers can lease a 2014 Charger or Challenger for twelve months, with a promise that they can return to the dealership a year later and have the same lease payment on a new 2015 Charger or Challenger.

This is a completely new opportunity that allows muscle car enthusiasts to get a taste for what is to come in anticipation of the new 2015 models. The only catch is that customers must use the same Dodge dealership for both transactions, lease through Chrysler Capital, and follow the program rules for eligibility. Not a very tough sell!

Just imagine getting to lease a 2014 Charger or Challenger and a year later upgrading to the newest model without having to increase in price! It almost sounds too good to be true!

For more information about the new Double Up Program rules, just speak to us at Corwin Dodge and we’ll let you in on the details. See you there!
