Tis The Season

You never knew you needed a Dodge Hellcat Reindeer onesie in your life until now

Your engine can roar to life, but when the fire is going and you're snuggled up on the couch with your loved one watching Netflix and sipping cocoa, there's only one outfit you should be wearing. Clearly it's the new Dodge Hellcat reindeer onesie, which has just gone on sale at Dodge's online lifestyle shop.

The 100-percent polyester fleece onesie has a bright red hue that is reminiscent of the red in the Dodge logo. It zips up in the front (naturally) and features a crew neck. It comes in sizes small through 3XL, proving it could be a good fit for most anyone, not unlike a Dodge Charger or Challenger.

Most importantly, the Dodge Hellcat Reindeer is embroidered on the right chest of the garment in contrasting white stitching. The Dodge word logo and rhombus are on the left in white and gray. The Dodge rhombus is also on the left leg in white.

Like Dodge customers, the garment is considered "one of a kind" according to the website.

If the $69.95 price tag of the onesie is too much of a stretch for your budget, consider the equally as handsome dark gray Hellcat Redeye Reindeer t-shirt which is just $17.95 (plus $5.95 shipping and handling - rush delivery is available for considerably more).

Among the other holiday gifts the automaker is touting are a 1320 Angry Bee ornament, "Ugly" holiday sweater, and a Demon whiskey barrel and stand.

Other FCA brands have holiday shops as well. Alfa Romeo's features finer items like a leather duffle bag and vanilla latte candle (with a leather wrap, natch) among the driving gloves and blanket choices.

Fiat offers a Fiat 500 children's pop up tent for just $30.95.

Jeep's gifts are among the coolest with two Hallmark ornaments to choose from: a 1982 CJ-8 Scrambler and a Wrangler Rubicon R/C Off-Road 1:16. There are Gladiator socks for the enthusiast and a drone and a pedal go-kart for the Jeep fan that just must have branded merchandise.

Ram has Stanley drinkware for sale, a Buck "55" lockback knife with the Ram logo featured on its blade, and a canvas and leather apron.

Nuts & Bolts

 
 

Dodge is celebrating its high-ranking J.D. Power survey results with a new commercial.

There were so many classic lines. Chief among them is, "If you ain't first, you're last." Dodge is showcasing its historic top spot inn J.D. Power's Initial Quality Study with a new "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby"-inspired commercial. The brand was also ranked first in the J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study.

The ad features actor Gary Cole as a younger Reese Bobby on a chase after his 10-year-old son Ricky Bobby. The 60-second spot is named "Family Motto" and set to the music of AC/DC's "Shot in the Dark", which is the first music released by the band in six years.

"In our 60-second film, we needed to stay 100 percent true to the spirit of the original film, while simultaneously communicating the Dodge brand's record of 'firsts' as ranked by our owners," said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer. "Maintaining brand authenticity extended beyond Sony Pictures, including our music alliance with Columbia Records and AC/DC, in addition to Gary Cole reprising his role as Reese Bobby, and having the original movie's cinematographer, Oliver Wood, involved with this project. Together, we were able to accomplish this epic creative endeavor celebrating the Dodge brand's first-place wins, which could almost be envisioned as a deleted scene from the original movie."

Here's how the spot unfolds according to Dodge:

The spot opens circa 1981 in Talladega County with Reese Bobby, in a new 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat, on a walkie talkie imploring his young son Ricky Bobby, who appears to be driving a 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye and who yells, 'I wanna go fast,' to pull the vehicle over. During the chase, Ricky Bobby calls out to his best friend Cal Naughton Jr., who appears to pull up next to Ricky in a 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock and who proudly proclaims, 'I had Mountain Dew for breakfast,' to help him outrun his father by using the infamous Shake 'n Bake maneuver (with a twist!), leaving his father proud and asking his son to remember the family motto, 'if you ain't first, you're last.'

"Dodge is honored to be the first domestic brand to rank No. 1 in not only the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, but also the J.D. Power Consumer APEAL Study (mass market) in the same year," said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. "And Dodge is launching three 700-plus-horsepower muscle cars this year with the new Challenger SRT Super Stock, Durango SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, proving that we firmly believe our new 'Family Motto,' 'if you ain't first, you're last.'"

The spot is related to a larger Dodge marketing campaign. The Dodge Power Dollars 2020 incentive program, $10 cash allowance per horsepower on 2020 Dodge Challenger, Charger, and Durango models.
