dg017_026ch24ik951m7eknjvgss0f65hf9k1__mid

The 2017 Dodge Charger has earned the Residual Value Award for the third time in three years!

This recognition comes from the ALG, an industry authority on automotive residual value projections in the US.  They analyze nearly 2,500 vehicles every year to provide consumers with the information.  ALG recognizes 26 vehicles with segment awards.  The awards are based on the 2017 model-year vehicles.

“Striking a delicate balance between traditional sedan and muscle car, the Dodge Charger represents the shifting trends in the full-size segment,” said Eric Lyman, VP of industry insights for ALG.  “A wide range of powertrain and comfort features ensure there is a perfect Charger for every personality.  High performance teams up with high value as the Dodge Charger lands back-to-back Residual Value Awards in 2017.”

“ALG recognizes vehicles and brands that stand out from the rest of the market, and that is exactly what the Dodge Charger does,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands at FCA.  “The only-four door muscle car in the market has now won this award from ALG three years in a row, and that is a testament to the fact that there is nothing else like Charger on the road today.”

Dodge brand is the number one mass-market auto brand on social media according to Shareablee Inc!

Shareablee, a social media analytics company, put out a new blog identifying the 10 ranking brands by looking at their social actions on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  Amongst the 10 brands, it was Dodge that led in 2015 and continues to do so into 2016.

Looking at January 1st to March 15th 2016, Dodge had over 5.2 million social actions on their social media platforms.  That is more than double the actions of the next ranked automaker.

“It is great to see Dodge recognized as a fast riser on social media,” said Olivier Francois, the Chief Marketing Officer at FCA.  “Having a strong social presence is an important part of our marketing strategy for all our brands.  We strive to deliver content that is true to each individual brand persona, is relevant and evokes a reaction from our followers.”

Dodge is known for their fans and their online persona.  The Dodge brand has centered itself lately on a love for high-octane and performance cars.  Muscle cars such as the Charger and Challenger Hellcat tend to dominate with both Dodge and its fans raving about the raw power and beautiful design.  One of their most popular hashtags is the #ThatsMyDodge and is used by many Dodge owners to show off their performance vehicle.

Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands at FCA, said that Dodge fans are simply car fans, but they love the Dodge brand.  “Dodge and SRT vehicles have passionate fans who are not just customers, but real brand advocates.  The fact that Dodge generated 5.2 million social interactions so far this year, nearly double that of the second-ranked automaker in the study really reinforces our belief that when the information you share is authentic and organic, people engage and share the content.”

2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger Unveiled at New York International Auto Show

2015 Dodge Charger

Earlier this week, Dodge announced that the unveiling of the 2015 Dodge Challenger and Charger will be happening at the New York International Auto Show.

The show is open to the public Friday, April 18 thru Sunday, April 27, but the reveal of the new Challenger and Charger will happen during the press preview on Thursday, April 17. It is possible to see the reveal without a press badge, though. There will be a Livestream webcast at 11:30 AM EDT. To view the Livestream, click here.

A press release from Dodge hinted that Dodge’s major presence at the New York International Auto Show is a preview of what Dodge fans can expect with the brand’s upcoming 100th anniversary. In many ways, Dodge seems to be stepping up their game this year with the 2015 line-up. The Dodge brand is well-loved, and it would be easy to rest on their nostalgic laurels for their 100th anniversary. Instead, they are giving the 2015 Dodge Charger a “full-body makeover,” a gutsy move, and Dodge fans will get to give their thoughts on the new look after the reveal on April 17.
