"Chrysler has identified with a specific market niche - a group of drivers that have a passion for performance hatchbacks. To address this need, we have delivered the racy Dodge Caliber Mopar Edition which we believe will go a long way to satisfy the ‘boy racer' in all of us,” stated Guy Franken, Group Head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Chrysler South Africa.
“The Mopar trademark is derived from the words Motor and Parts - is one of the most familiar in the automotive industry and is an unquestionable force in the world of performance parts. The essence of the "Mopoar" enthusiasm began with the production of the world famous Hemi engine, although it has a history stretching way, way back,” he continued.
“Mopar is associated with a dominant presence in both track and strip and its involvement in various racing formulas linked with Dodge in the US over the years, has proven it to be the purveyor of high-performance and qaulity engineered parts. Today, the Dodge Caliber Mopar Edition has the same Mopar DNA as found in the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger muscle cars," concluded Franken.
