Dodge mocks the Passat in the latest Charger SRT commercials

Article by Christian A., on August 21, 2014

Chrysler released two new ads promoting their 2015 Dodge Charger but what’s more interesting is that both mock the Volkswagen Passat. The first commercial is called “Just Kidding” and presents a Dodge Charger waiting for the green traffic light. In addition, the commercial shows the well-known race track LED taillights and provides the best sound delivered by the HEMI V8.

The second commercial, called "I Wish", is in fact the same video but with a different speech and just like in the first one, the German sedan is mocked again. Both commercials promote the 2015 Charger SRT, which is powered by a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that pumps out 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.

For those who don’t know, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT is able to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in the high-second range and runs the quarter mile in the high 12s.

Still, if you are not satisfied by these performances, Dodge also introduced the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat which carries a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8 powerplant that produces a staggering 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.

This model runs the quarter mile in 11.0 seconds and has a top speed of 204 mph or 328 km/h. But, enough with the talking! You should watch the videos and just wait for Volkswagen’s answer!

The new 2015 Dodge Charger takes inspiration from the original Charger launched more than 45 years ago, thereby paying tribute to muscle cars of the past while delivering a modern exterior and interior.

As designed, the exterior of the 2015 Dodge Charger is spiritually inspired by the second-generation Charger of the late 1960s, especially the 1969 model. Featuring a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) platform and true power, the Charger definitely provides a modern take on old-school muscle cars.

For the 2015 model year, Dodge tweaked the Charger's Coke-bottle design, front crosshairs, scalloped body sides, assertive stance and signature LED "racetrack" tail lamps and injected cleaner lines to give the car a chiseled and nimble appearance. Further exterior tweaks were made to the hood, fenders, headlamps and tail lamps as well as on the front doors, spoiler and front and rear fascias.

The face of the 2015 Charger is marked by a forward-leaning front fascia, an all-new full-width crosshair grille, new projector-beam headlamps turn signals and slim, elongated daytime running lights (DRLs). Premium trims employ HID headlights while SXT and R/T variants feature LED fog lamps. Its blacked out front-end graphics allows the Charger to resemble fellow family members Dodge Dart and Durango. Dodge logos are found in the outside corner of each headlamp.
