The Force Awakens: Dodge Joins the Dark Side [VIDEO]
If Darth Vader lived in today's world and had to choose a vehicle, I bet he'd go for a Dodge Viper ACR. And since the premiere of the latest Start Wars Series, called "The Force Awakens" is intimidatingly near, December18th, then there is nothing better to talk about the strange combination of the ‘Dark Side' and… Dodge cars. The company has just released a cool TV ad to promote the future blockbuster.
Of course, you will hear the Imperial March, but what you will see is unexpectedly exciting. The video actually displays an army of muscle cars, compacts, crossovers and SUVs with massive doses of attitude!
Each and every one of them is built for top performance, from power off the line to handling in the corners! Just like any Stormtrooper should be powerful, technologically advanced, capable and efficient, these Dodge vehicles, the Charger, Challenger, and Durango, express the same qualities!

By the way, the ad is called "The Force Gathers" and the most exciting part of it is the ‘leading role' of the black Dodge Viper ACR. The car was released this year and has shown some impressive details, about which you can read in the link above. But some fast facts, might remind you how cool this car is and why Darth Vader has chosen it.
First, it is powerful beyond measure, because of its 8.4-liter V10 engine, which produces 645 horsepower (474 kW) and 813 Nm (600 lb-ft) of torque. It transmits all this power onto the road via the Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission.
The car also shows-off with Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, 19-inch alloys and exclusive Kumho Ecsta V720 high-performance rubbers. We don't doubt that Vader has chosen to add the Extreme Aero package to his Viper ACR, making sure that he will have the highest aerodynamic downforce of any production car! And just in case you ask about it, well the Extreme Aero package can offer up to three times the downforce of the Viper TA or Time Attack 2.0 package.
