Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey Event Sponsors Motley Crue’s Farewell Tour

Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey EventThe Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey event, which recently brought together rock and roll  and classic cars in Dallas,  featured an awesome performance by Motley Crue. The concert celebrated both the band’s partnership with Dodge (which is sponsoring the group’s farewell tour) and the automakers 100th anniversary. The event was open to pre-registered Doge vehicle owners, which resulted in the Dodge Rocks Gas Monkey event attracting over 1,000 Dodge cars, as people drove in for some classic music.   Billboard reports that die-hard Crue fan Tim Kuniskis, who also happens to be the Dodge President, said Motely Crue “’fits the brand perfectly,’ especially as Dodge moves from any family-friendly vehicles such as the Avenger sedan and Caravan minivan to becoming a ‘mainstream performance brand.””

The Dodge partnership with Motley Crue started in 2013 when their song “Kickstart My Heart” was used in the car company’s ad campaigns. When the automaker had to renew the partnership, the band’s managers told them about the farewell tour, which is how the partnership got started.

The sponsorship goes through the end of the North American Motley Crue Farewell Tour, which ends November 22nd. Kickstart your heart with a new Dodge like the 2015 Challenger or Dart from Corwin Dodge today!

Dodge Bringing New Models of Charger and Challenger to NY

The Dodge brand has long given us some of our favorite muscle cars, with aggressive curves, edgy design, and thunderously loud performance—and performance numbers. Now, they’re bringing new models of both the Charger and Challenger to NY for its International Auto Show. Both of these cars will be 2015 models, and they’ll help ring in the 100th anniversary of the Dodge brand coming up this summer.

The Dodge Challenger will be all new this year, a 2015 model that is “inspired by the classic Dodge Challenger” and “features a new powertrain combination that is sure to get enthusiasts ‘abuzz,’” a Dodge press release hints cryptically. The Charger may not be fully redesigned, but it will get a revamped exterior for the new model. Adding to its already existing muscle car design will just be the cherry on our sundae.

Here at Corwin Dodge, we’re just as anxious as all of you to see the unveiled final versions of these awesome Dodge cars, and luckily for all of us, we won’t have to be in New York to see Dodge bring the Charger and Challenger to NY. Simply go to www.dodge.com or hit up the Livestream webcast on April 17, at 11:30 am Eastern time, to see the unveiling live.
