Dodge Goes to the Dark Side Led by Sinister Darth Viper [News]

FCA and Dodge have been co-branding themselves with some big blockbuster movies this year. First it was Dodge and the release of Furious 7 in April. Then the Chrysler, Dodge and Ram brands sponsored a series of ads for the final installment of the Hunger Games series, “Mockingjay – Part 2.” This month FCA is riding on the marketing wave of the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” movie directed by J.J. Abrams.

At the L.A. Auto Show Fiat displayed a custom-painted Fiat 500e Stormtrooper, inspired by the armor of the First Order Legion.

Be prepared to see more ads that tie-in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Fiat vehicles as we get closer to the December 18 release date of the latest Star Wars movie.
