Is the Dodge Viper Coming Back?

Dodge Viper

In 2017, we all shed tears when the final round of production wrapped up on the world’s last Dodge Viper. But, less than a year later (in fact, some cheeks may not yet have had the chance to dry) there are rumors that the Dodge Viper coming back.

Although the FCA hasn’t released any official announcement, current rumors indicate that the Viper will reappear. The new Viper will have a long hood, continue to utilize independent front and rear suspensions, and will transition from the traditional V-10 to a V-8. Car and Driver reports that the available Viper models will offer various performance levels, with horsepower ranging from 550 to 700.

The first Dodge Viper hit the American streets 1991 with an aluminum alloy V-10 engine designed by Lamborghini, then a subsidiary of the Chrysler Corporation. This first model was a pure miracle of performance — or, an intelligently-designed work of performance perfection. Down to the smallest detail, from the absence of air conditioning to the removal of exterior door handles, the 1991 Viper was created for one thing and one thing only: performance.

We’re excited for the legendary comeback of the Dodge Viper imminent if rumors prove true. Until then, we’re keeping our fingers crossed here at Westpointe Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram that the 2021 model won’t forget its impressive roots.

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.
