Don’t Miss Dodge at the 2014 Woodward Dream Cruise
There are some things that, if missed, you can shrug off and say, “I’m glad I didn’t put on pants and stayed home to eat that tub of ice cream with my cat.” Then there are other things that, dare we say, are worth putting your pants on for. Dodge at the 2014 Woodward Dream Cruise this weekend is one of those things.
While the Woodward Dream Cruise kicks off today in Detroit, the real party starts on Saturday, August 16, when Dodge unleashes the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and—for the first time to the public—the all-new 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat at Dodge Rock City, located at 13 Miles and Woodward Avenue. The Charger SRT Hellcat is the fastest, most powerful sedan in the world, and its sibling, the Challenger SRT Hellcat, is the fastest, most powerful muscle car in the world. That’s a one-two knockout punch for Dodge, eh?
Also on display with be both classic and new Dodge and SRT vehicles, including the new Viper, Dart, Durango, Journey, Charger, and Charger Pursuit police car. Dodge will also offer a 2015 Dodge Challenger race simulator so that fans can test their track time and beat out their friends. In addition, Dodge will host live bands all day, including Rockstar, The Phoenix Theory, and Free Beer, and will welcome special appearances by WRIF on-air personalities, who will be handing out swag all day long.
As if that’s not enough, Dodge will be offering a VIP Mötley Crüe Concert Fly Away package to one lucky winner at the WRIF tent, as well as photo opportunities with Scat Pack and Hellcat girls. Steve Magnante, a Dodge muscle expert, will be cruising Woodward in a Billet Silver Metallic 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 while Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage and the Fast N’ Loud TV show will be in a Sublime 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Rawlings will be passing out free special-edition HEMI Hellcat/Gas Monkey Garage T-shirts and appearing at the Dodge display on Saturday to hand out even more freebies.
And the best part? If you download the Hellcat engine ringtone and play it for Rawlings, he’ll autograph the shirt for you.
“From the excitement of hearing the roar of the 707 horsepower Dodge SRT Hellcat Charger and Challenger, the most powerful vehicles on the planet, to the live bands and Richard Rawlings cruising Woodward handing out free limited edition t-shirts, Dodge Rock City will be the place to be this weekend,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands, Chrysler Group LLC. “This may be the first year the Dodge SRT Hellcats cruise Woodward, but it definitely won’t be the last, as they are destined to be the among the most exciting, coveted classic cars in years to come.”
That’s not all there is to do with Dodge at the 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise this weekend.
