Dodge Grand Caravan Gets New Blu-Ray Player for the Holidays

It’s that time of year to head over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house for the holidays. With a backseat full of antsy kids, though, parents can go a little crazy trying to keep family harmony on road trips.

Fortunately, the Dodge Grand Caravan now has an optional Blu-ray player available with plug-in for video game systems. With the new system, the second and third row seats can enjoy a movie or game on a high-resolution screen. Best of all, if there is disagreement between Spongebob Squarepants and Star Wars, the second row can watch one movie on their screen and the third row can watch a different movie on their screen.

I think this is a great idea on Dodge’s part especially that the system can play two different movies at once. Sometimes there is a vast age difference between siblings, and it is tough to find movies that toddlers and teenagers alike will enjoy. With Dodge’s new system, parents don’t have to worry that a movie might be too scary for the little ones or bore the teenagers. Everybody can get what they want.

Dodge’s Juiced-Up Charger to Appear at SEMA Show

The 2012 SEMA show is next week in Las Vegas, and Dodge will be bringing a souped up version of their old favorite the Charger to the show.

On the outside, the Charger Juiced will have a body-color split cross hair grille with Mopar grille badge, matte black hood graphics and decklid graphics, and Mopar’s exclusive 20-inch lightweight wheels. On the inside, the Charger Juiced will have a 650-horsepower Viper V10 engine, and the driver will get a luxurious interior with black leather seats, a matte black aluminum instrument panel, Mopar’s pistol-grip shifter, and carpet floor mats.

Dodge has already released some pictures of the Charger Juiced, and at first glance, it is definitely not a car that will blend into a crowd. The Metallic Copperhead paint job is classy while also being very cool and distinctive. Fans of the Charger will likely drool over the Juiced and get some ideas for modifications and add-ons to their own Charger. Luckily at the SEMA show, they are in the perfect place to pick up some of those add-ons and upgrades.

Dodge Dart and What Lies Ahead

“All that matters is what’s ahead.”

The tag-line for the 2013 Dodge Dart perfectly sums up Dodge’s attitude towards what is arguably their most important vehicle of 2012, and in a splashy show of support, Dodge has installed a 116-foot-by-145-foot building wrap bearing the tag-line on their headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

The Dart won’t be available until late June, but Dodge has been getting it as much exposure as possible. As we previously reported, Dodge marketing has heavily targeted young people and positioned it to be the hot sedan of 2012. As June gets closer and the reviews keep rolling in, though, it is becoming clearer that this car is more important for Dodge than anyone could have imagined.

The Dodge Dart will be the first vehicle that Chrysler will have designed alongside Fiat SpA. People will take the launch of the Dodge Dart and how well it performs as an indicator of the future of Chrysler, and so far, all signs are pointing to a bright future. Business Insider is calling the Dart “a delightful surprise,” and Auto Guide named it “most attractive vehicle in its class.” By hanging that building wrap on the Dodge headquarters, Chrysler is making a statement. More than just standing behind the Dart, they trust it to be the face of the brand in 2012.
