Chrysler Pacifica and “Incredibles 2”

If you don’t already know, the sequel to the animated superhero movie, “The Incredibles,” is out in theatres. “Incredibles 2” features one of America’s favorite families who pairs up with America’s favorite minivan — the Chrysler Pacifica.

“Incredibles 2” and the Pacifica have two things in common — they’re wildly popular with families, which is likely why Chrysler made the move to partner with Disney and Pixar to create an incredible, movie-inspired promotion for the Pacifica.

The all-new advertisement depicts the super-family behind the wheel of a standard sedan. When they visit Edna Mode, fashion designer to the superheroes, she expresses horror at their vehicle. It’s just not appropriate for the Parrs’ unique lifestyle. Instead, Edna suggests the perfect car for their fast-paced life — the Chrysler Pacifica.

The Chrysler Pacifica isn’t only perfect for superhero families — it’s perfect for every family. Each of the ads focus on the Pacifica’s strong suits — like the available hybrid powertrain that helps make the Pacifica more efficient than ever.

Other features highlighted include the 360-degree surround view camera, which gives a better view when in reverse. Stow n’ Go is another helpful system that allows you to collapse the back seats down under the floor for optimum storage.

Stop by Westpointe Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram to test drive the Pacifica for yourself.

Car Name Meanings in Dodge’s Lineup

The Exciting Dodge Lineup

Ever wondered where car name meanings come from? Here at Westpointe CDJR, we’ve decided to answer some of those questions about Dodge’s model lineup.

Challenger

In the 1970s, when the Challenger name first appeared on the market, it came into the ring to take down its competitors – the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The three rivals remain at odds still today, but the Dodge Challenger stands as a reminder that someone else might come in swinging at any time.

Charger

The word “charger” can be used to refer to a horse that has been formally trained for battle. Several vehicles have been named the Charger, but the current one charged back into the market after a nearly 20-year disappearance.

Durango

This one’s named after a location – specifically, a city in Colorado. Originally, the vehicle was called the Chrysler Aspen, which is another city in Colorado, but the name was switched to the Durango as you know it today.

Hellcat

Named after an American fighter aircraft in World War II, the Grumman F6F Hellcat, the Hellcat name refers not to a specific vehicle, but to certain models of vehicles that contain Dodge’s most powerful engines.

Viper

This one’s a little more obvious; a viper is a type of venomous snake. However, when it was being developed, the Dodge Viper was largely influenced by the Ford Cobra, so the name is also a homage to its inspiration.

Jurassic Park Jeep Recreated by University of New Orleans Student

Jurassic Park Jeep

A student at the University of New Orleans has recreated the Jurassic Park Jeep, one of the most iconic movie cars of all time thanks to the cultural phenomenon that was (and is) Jurassic Park.

Michael Adams, a University of New Orleans engineering student and Jeep Wrangler owner, turned his 2003 Wrangler into the Jurassic Park Jeep with the help of a local body shop. The body shop painted on the stripes and attached the Jurassic Park logo. Then, to make it a real replica, they attached a radio antenna and light bar, new tires, and other accents like painted mirrors.

Adams didn’t just alter his Jeep into the Jurassic Park Jeep for kicks, though. He takes it to events like comic conventions and lets attendees pose by it and takes pictures for donations as small as $1, which he then gives to St. Joseph’s Hospice Foundation. Adams has so far raised more than $1,500 for the foundation.

Adams is now considering moving onto another movie-themed project and replicating the Ford Explorer from the Jurassic Park film. If you want to buy your own Jeep to turn into the iconic movie version, give us a call today at Westpointe CDJR near Oklahoma City, OK!
