Stellantis Press Release: Ram Truck Brand Teams With Foo Fighters to Launch New Advertising Campaign to Shine a “Spotlight” on Everyday Rock Stars

  • “Rock Star” will kick off the “Spotlight” campaign across Ram’s social media channels, featuring Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters in his Ram 1500
  • The campaign launches with two spots, “Rock Star” and “Overtime,” both narrated by Grohl; third spot, “Best Part,” to debut later this month
  • “Spotlight” reinforces the shared values of the Ram Truck brand and Foo Fighters, shining a light on parents, family caregivers, coaches, teachers and all those who remind us they are built to serve, even in the most challenging times
  • The spots are set to “Making A Fire,” the opening track of the band’s massive 10th album “Medicine at Midnight,” and will run across television, digital and Ram’s official YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels
  • The campaign coincides with two new projects directed by Grohl: 
    • “What Drives Us,” a feature-film documentary described by Grohl as his “love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music”
    • “From Cradle to Stage,” an original unscripted television series inspired by his mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl and her critically acclaimed book of the same name

Beginning today, the Ram Truck brand and Foo Fighters join forces to pay homage to everyday heroes with the launch of a new multimedia campaign, “Spotlight,” which includes three new videos spanning television, digital and Ram Truck brand social media channels.

The campaign will kick off just before Mother’s Day and coincides with the release of “From Cradle to Stage,” a new unscripted series directed by Grohl and inspired by his mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl and her critically acclaimed book. This follows closely on the release of “What Drives Us,” a documentary Grohl directed as “a love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music.” 

“Foo Fighters’ story with the Ram Truck brand started 25 years ago when they piled into a Ram van and headed out on the road in search of a dream,” said Olivier Francois, Global Chief Marketing Officer, Stellantis. “Their ability to pursue those dreams were enabled by the ones who have continued to support the band throughout what has turned out to be a one-of-a-kind journey. Now, we come full circle with the Foo Fighters in a collaboration that recognizes the challenges and celebrates the triumphs of our everyday heroes, especially during this last year, and further reinforces our ‘Built to Serve’ commitment to Ram customers everywhere.” 

Stretching back to the #RamBandVan initiative launched in 2018 and decades earlier to the ’90s and the band’s original Ram van featured in “What Drives Us,” the partnership between the Ram Truck brand and Foo Fighters was born out of a shared passion: A desire to enable hardworking musicians to get out and tour, knowing the struggles, financial and otherwise, that come with the grassroots touring lifestyle. The #RamBandVan program has and will continue to support determined musicians as they get back to doing what they love.

Soundtracked by Foo Fighters’ anthemic “Making A Fire,” the campaign kicks off with an extended 60-second version of “Rock Star” featuring Dave Grohl. As a tribute to the mentors and leaders who are Ram truck owners, the video showcases everyday people helping kids with their struggles, while Grohl is seen driving his Ram 1500 and listing all the ways it takes to overcome obstacles on the path to rock stardom before humbly stating, “bringing out the very best of them, takes the very best of us.” 

Two additional 30-second campaign spots, “Overtime” and “Best Part,” will run across television. A 30-second version of “Rock Star” will also run across television.

The Ram Truck brand’s “Spotlight” campaign was created in collaboration with Austin, Texas-based agency GSD&M with support from G7 Entertainment Marketing, who brokered the Foo Fighters partnership.

International Female Ride Day

International Female Ride Day was May 1st, Polaris and Indian Motorcycle celebrated with graphics and many stories from female riders! This is to inspire, promote, and encourage women in motorsports!

Here are some of the stories from the Indian Motorcycle Twitter account!

“Riding gives me the freedom to travel and meet new friends. I’ve met some of my best friends on my long distance motorcycle rides. IFRD brings together a sisterhood of women from all walks of life, all bonded together by the love of the ride. I love being a part of the IFRD rides, and bringing new riders into the sisterhood.” – @porschetaylor

“When it comes to riding with a group of women, the experience is empowering. What I’ve come to find are women who ride motorcycles are a completely different breed – we are all independent and powerful women. There’s something special that happens when you group up a bunch of such strong-willed ladies. Together we become an inspirational force to bring out other female riders. #IFRD is about women empowering women.” – IG: bobber_gal

“For me, riding encompasses many important things I value in my life: community, freedom, independence, and abundance. Riding nourishes my soul and helps me navigate this crazy beautiful thing we call life. Being a part of IFRD is a very special thing to me; it provides me the opportunity to bring women riders together and celebrate the culture I love so deeply.” IG: kellyyazdi

“Riding gives me a sense of freedom, a sense of control, and a feeling of thrill. I feel at calm and ease when the open air is hitting my face, and the confidence I’ve gained from riding a motorcycle is incomparable. Womxn supporting womxn is a powerful thing to see, and I think it’s important that we continue movements like IFRD, so that we can continue to inspire other women to get out and ride.” – IG: star_bobber_11

Stellantis North America Plant Shutdowns

Since there is a semiconductor chip shortage for vehicles Stellantis North America has closed some plants, including some here in Michigan. Semiconductor chips are important with todays technology in vehicles, they control the electronic features like driver-assist technologies, hybrid-electric systems, and even infotainment connectivity. The plants that were originally closed are:

  • Belvidere Assembly Plant in Belvidere, Illinois – Jeep® Cherokee (KL)
  • Brampton Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario – Chrysler 300 Series (LX), Dodge Challenger (LA), and Dodge Charger (LD)
  • Toluca Assembly Plant in Toluca, Mexico – Jeep Compass (MP)
  • Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Warren, Michigan – Ram 1500 Classic (DS)
  • Windsor Assembly Plant – Windsor, Ontario – Chrysler Grand Caravan, Chrysler Pacifica, and Chrysler Voyager (RU)

This was so that the chips they did have could go to production for the more popular vehicles. Production at the plants that didn’t temporarily close has been cut down as well.

The plant closures and chip shortages isn’t just involving Stellantis brands its affecting the whole car industry. This means that inventory is getting smaller, but with demand the same for new vehicles the prices are going up.

No one really knows how long this could last so if your looking to get a new vehicle sooner is better than later right now.

Jeep Wrangler scored a 5-Year Cost to Own award for the seventh consecutive year, as well as for the third in a row in the Off-Road SUV segment.

The data allows new-car shoppers to see the big picture of what a new vehicle will cost them over time, helping them to save money by choosing a vehicle that best meets their needs and their long-term budget. 

Jeep Wrangler 
The iconic Jeep Wrangler – the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world – delivers unmatched off-road capability and is produced with 80 years of 4×4 engineering experience. Powertrain options include a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with engine stop-start (ESS) technology, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with ESS and mild-hybrid e-Torque technology and, for four-door Wrangler models, an available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine with ESS. 

The Wrangler 4xe, which uses an advanced 375-horsepower powertrain, provides a unique on- and off-road experience through the combination of two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack, a high-tech 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine and robust TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. The most advanced powertrain ever developed for a Jeep Wrangler maximizes efficiency, delivering 49 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) and 21 miles of pure-electric operation for most daily commutes.

Mated to a crisp-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Trac full-time active transfer case, the 392-cubic-inch V-8 rockets the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and the quarter-mile in 13.0 seconds. 

Wrangler continues to offer a body-on-frame design, front and rear five-link suspension system, solid axles, electronic lockers and is one of the few SUVs to offer a six-speed manual transmission in addition to its available eight-speed automatic. A multitude of technology features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and safety features, such as Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection, adaptive cruise control and Forward Collision Warning-Plus, further Wrangler’s appeal.  

Chrysler Voyager 
The Chrysler Voyager holds its own distinct position in the award-winning Chrysler minivan lineup and is well-equipped to stand against the competition for those seeking a value-added family vehicle. America’s most affordable minivan, designed with the budget-friendly family and fleet customer in mind, the 2021 Chrysler Voyager carries a unique look and feel within the Chrysler minivan lineup, delivering an exceptional driving experience at a pocketbook-friendly price.  

Powered by the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine paired with a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission, Voyager delivers 287 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. Standard features highlight Voyager’s versatility, capacity and utility, including seven-passenger seating with third-row Stow ‘n Go and 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio with integrated voice command with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility.  

Launched with a five-star overall safety rating from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Voyager also comes standard with a long list of safety features, including seven airbags, daytime running lights, electronic stability control, Brake Assist, Child Seat Anchor System (LATCH), ParkView rear backup camera and more. Mobility innovations include available rear- and side-entry conversions that create a wider entryway and more interior space compared to a standard Voyager, as well as an enhanced ramp securement system, helping to ensure superior maneuverability and improved ease of entry and exit for wheelchair users.  

Dodge Charger 
Dodge muscle gets even stronger for the 2021 model year with the new “demon-possessed” Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan the world. Raising the bar to performance levels never seen before in a four-door family sedan, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye serves up 797-horsepower and 707 lb.-ft. of torque and a top speed of 203 mph, delivering the ultimate in high-performance, comfort and road-ready confidence as the world’s only four-door muscle car.

With a new horsepower rating of 717 for the 2021 model year, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody fills out the Charger SRT performance lineup. Both Charger SRT Hellcat models feature a new performance hood that gives this four-door sedan an even more sinister look. 

With power output ranging from nearly 300 horsepower on Pentastar V-6 models to nearly 800 horsepower on the new SRT Hellcat Redeye, the 2021 Dodge Charger lineup offers a full range of powerful engine options designed to meet the wants of a wide range of Dodge performance enthusiasts. The 2021 Dodge Charger lineup includes eight distinct models and five different engines, including: 

  • The award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with up to 300 horsepower on the Charger SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD models 
  • The legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 with 370 horsepower on R/T models

Stellantis Blog: Achieving a Milestone with a Bang

Our engineers and technicians conducted the 25,000th crash test this week at our safety research center in Chelsea, Michigan.

Crash-testing at Chelsea Proving Grounds (CPG) began in 1962, when vehicles were rolled down an outdoor ramp to collide with a second, stationary vehicle.

Seven tests were conducted that year. Fast-forward to today and CPG performs nearly twice that many every week. 

Over the last 10 years alone, CPG’s engineers and technicians have left their fingerprints on nearly 70 five-star vehicle ratings under the U.S. New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).

There have been major advancements in methodology since that first test decades ago. Tests have become more sophisticated and diverse, as vehicles are now secured to sleds in a controlled environment and hurled against barriers of various shapes – all under the unforgiving watch of cameras and data recorders.

As tests have evolved, so has technology. Accordingly, we have  pioneered new features that have further enhanced occupant safety, including industry-first achievements such as:

∙      The 1988 introduction of air bags as standard equipment

∙      Integrated child-safety seats in 1992

∙      And most recently, the 2018 debut of a patented frame-rail design for the Ram 1500
