Dodge Charger, Challenger Star in Upcoming Furious 7

New Hampshire Dodge fans, if you’re gearing up for the latest installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise, get ready to sit back and enjoy the ride. When it’s released on April 3, you’ll get to see not one, but two of your favorite Dodge muscle cars speeding across the silver screen. The latest film in the series, Furious 7, includes plenty of the heart-pounding chase scenes you’ve come to live for, and this year it stars the performance-inspired Dodge Charger and the iconic Dodge Challenger.

Actors Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez will be seen racing about in Dodge’s famous muscle cars, just like the ones you’ll find at our Dodge dealership in Concord, NH. Diesel’s character, Dom Toretto, will drive a candy red 2015 Dodge Charger during several chase scenes, while Rodriguez’s Letty Ortiz gets behind the wheel of a black and green 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T. Plus, NH Jeep fans will also have the thrill of watching Ludacris’ Tej Parker flooring it in an armor-plated 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

While Dodge cars have been highlighted in the Fast and the Furious franchise since its 2001 inception, the latest installment comes after an official partnership between the legendary automaker and Universal Studios. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles provided 30 different vehicles for the movie and TV advertisements, and even created a dedicated page on Dodge’s website for the vehicles used in the film. Dodge also partnered with Atlantic Records to feature vehicles in the music videos of the songs on Furious 7’s soundtrack.

If you have a need for some adrenaline-pumping speed, head to Bob Mariano Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram today, and we’ll get you behind the wheel of a Charger or Challenger for a test-drive!

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler not only placed on the Top 10 overall models list, but also earned the top prize in the Compact SUV/Crossover category. It’s not the Wrangler’s first drive around the block though: this iconic vehicle has been named the Best Resale Value in its class for four consecutive years now, and has placed among the Top 10 list five years in a row. Plus, the slightly larger four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited scored as the winner for the Best Mid-Size SUV/Crossover segment, proving the brand’s undeniable strength.

“The entire list of Top 10 Best Resale Value vehicles is dominated this year by trucks, SUVs and crossovers, which is a testament to the strength these categories will carry in the future,” Eric Ibara, director of residual value consulting for Kelley Blue Book, said in a release.

Rounding out KBB.com’s impressive list of winners is the unmistakably cool 2015 Dodge Charger. Aggressively restyled for the 2015 model year, the most successful four-door fastback-styled muscle car on the market boasts unique design elements and enough space for both people and cargo. The Charger scored the top spot on Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards: Full-Size Car list, proving it’s much more than just a pretty fascia.

Kelley Blue Book’s annual KBB.com Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide, and winners are chosen by talented automotive analysts. The awards recognize vehicles expected to maintain a majority of their original list price five years down the road.

If you haven’t already jumped on the bandwagon and are still looking for a car you can rely on for years to come, stop by our NH Dodge dealership at your earliest convenience. We’ll get you behind the wheel of a new Jeep or Dodge for a test-drive as soon as possible!

2014 Dodge Charger Pursuit AWD Sets Fastest Lap Time

Dodge Charger Pursuit

When it comes to law enforcement, only the best equipment will do, and no tool is more important for a state trooper than a reliable cruiser that can deliver performance when needed. For that purpose, Dodge has introduced a series of improvements to the pursuit-rated 2014 Dodge Charger AWD police cruiser that make it the fastest ever AWD police sedan. The Charger was also praised for its handling, acceleration and superb braking ability.

The new Dodge Charger Pursuit AWD was recently put through the Police Vehicle Evaluation tests, and it delivered a record lap time in its class, adding to the all-time mark held by the Dodge Charger RWD sedan. One of the main advantages of the new model is that it can automatically switch from AWD to RWD in order to save fuel or improve performance and handling, depending on the situation, without any driver input. That way, our troopers can stay focused on what really matters. This is particularly important for the treacherous driving conditions during the winter months.

The same technology and engineering that make this police vehicle the best in its class are also available for New Hampshire drivers who come to our Dodge dealership in New Hampshire looking for a new Dodge Charger. You know you are driving a quality car when your ride is also the top choice for local troopers!

Dodge Charger and Challenger Star in New Syfy Show and Game

Dodge Charger Syfy Network Defiance

If you’re a fan of science fiction, chances are you were tuned in to the debut of the Syfy network’s latest offering, “Defiance.” We were watching to see the debut of the Dodge Charger, which takes a starring role in the series. Two Chargers sport some serious exterior modifications to fit into the new world of 2046, when aliens known as Votans have arrived on Earth. After the apocalyptic “Arkfall” event, which drastically changed the geography and wildlife on the planet, some humans and aliens band together, putting aside differences from the years of Pale Wars to survive. The Charger is driven by a main character, Nolan (played by Grant Bowler), who is a local law-keeper in the city of Defiance.

While the Dodge Charger brings its power and good looks to the TV screen, the Dodge Challenger is featured in the corresponding multiplayer online game. It’s the first time an online game and a TV show feature an interconnected world with integrated storylines. Things that happen in the show will be reflected in the game, and vice versa, creating a multilayered world that sci-fi fans can truly appreciate.

If you want to start planning for the coming alien invasion, check out our New Hampshire Dodge Charger dealership and drive one home today! We’ll be tuning in every week to watch the new show, so check back in for updates on the Charger’s performance.
