Dodge Charger Trolls the Volkswagen Passat in Latest Ads

Now that the engineers have done their job, with the 2015 Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcat pair having been unleashed upon us, it’s time for the marketing department to start sweating. We’ve already seen a smart piece of trolling from Dodge and now they’re back with more on the same topic.

Dodge just launched two commercials for the Charger. In the process of preaching their performance sedan to the people, Dodge is trolling the Volkswagen Passat.

In fact, they haven’t stuck to simply doing that, they’ve released two commercials that troll the Passat in different ways. The two even share the same footage, only coming with different messages.

Actually, Dodge has used this footage before, also for a pair of commercials - the ones we showed you back in July.

For the job, they used a 2014 Charger R/T Blacktop, which is motivated by a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that churns out 370 ponies. Nonetheless, Dodge does mention you can have the Charger with up to 470 hp. This either means they’re referring to the pre-revamp model, or we may be dealing with another easter egg - the 2015 Charger SRT (non-Hellcat) hasn’t been revealed yet and this could be a hint that the model will inherit the 2014 vehicle’s 470 hp output.

As an amusing coincidence, GM recently took on the Volkswagen Passat, letting the world know the 2015 Corvette, with its 8-speed automatic, is more efficient than the Vee-Dub.
