Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Apple Make Sweet Music

Miami Lakes Automall FCA Summer Edition Campaign

Miami Lakes Automall FCA Summer Edition Campaign

Ya’ll ready for some summer love? Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has started its 2018 Edition of FCA’s summer advertising campaign. With a focus on several FCA brands, Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram, and FIAT, commercials will be airing on various media channels, digital and TV, to promote these brands and select vehicles. In partnership with the technological giant Apple, FCA and Apple will be working together to also promote Apple CarPlay and the “Apple Experience” with the summer advertising campaign, set to feature ten music artists across multiple labels, including a Jeep brand collaboration with multi platinum, Grammy®-nominated band OneRepublic (Interscope Records) to launch the sixth Summer of Jeep campaign.

“FCA offers an incredible Apple experience, giving consumers the ability to enjoy Apple Music’s catalog of 45 million songs and to listen with premium BeatsAudio sound, in addition to all the features that come with CarPlay. This collaboration inspired us to leverage the strength and identity of each of our individual brands…Additionally, as the only automaker to now offer branded playlists on Apple Music, this allows us to provide increased relevance to targeted audiences.” – said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, FCA.

The “Apple Experience” is an offer the FCA started in June 2018 that would give new consumers a chance to get Apple Music for free. Customers in the U.S. and Canada would get six months of Apple Music free if they were new Apple Music users and three months free if they were existing customers with the purchase of any new Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Jeep or Ram vehicle with standard Apple CarPlay support. It should go without saying that all of these ads will be showing off Apple CarPlay functionality, although Google Android Auto will most likely also be standard if Apple CarPlay is.

Of the ten music artists being featured, those who have music featured in the commercials are OneRepublic, Alice Cooper, Brothers Osborne, Dej Loaf & Leon, and Nicky Blitz. Other music artists, such as Sofia Reyes, Dave Cobb, Gus Wenner, and Kathryn Hahn also worked together with the above artists to make curated playlists for the Summer of Jeep campaign, now available on Apple Music. The main focus for FCA though, is OneRepublic with Interscope Records.

“With this new campaign, Interscope continues our relationship with the FCA-crafting campaigns that speak to the power of music…Our diverse roster and FCA’s respect for the magic of artistry and the creative process are evident in the new Summer of Jeep spot featuring OneRepublic.” – said Steve Berman, Vice Chairman Interscope Geffen A&M Records.

You can watch some of the videos for the Summer of Jeep campaign below.

Playing in the background of the Jeep Brand commercial, “Sold Out”, is the new single from OneRepublic, “Connection”. Featured in this commercial is the redesigned Jeep Cherokee and the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL.

“Under My Wheels” by Alice Cooper will be playing behind the Dodge brand commercial,”The Rider”. With a taste for high-octane speed, the Dodge Durango SRT is featured in this commercial.

The Brothers Osborne and their new track “While You Still Can” plays in the background of the “Support the Port” commercial, showing off how the Ram 1500 helps the brothers in their project to renovate the Historic Theatre in Port Saint Joe, Florida.

Is the FCA Locked into Autonomous Driving?

Miami Lakes Automall FCA Autonomous Driving 2

Soon after Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced their five-year plans, many noticed there was a much larger focus on the expansion of the Jeep® brand and alternative fuel sources. Although the auto market has been shifting towards hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles in recent years, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has only dipped their toes in with the unsuccessful Fiat 500e and very successful Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. The popular plug-in hybrid minivan has also had a large role to play with the once Google-owned project, the self-driving autonomous vehicle, the Waymo. We see even greater potential in the autonomous market before its saturated with every auto brand that makes vehicles with a GPS system and a camera.

The first self-driving autonomous vehicle to make a large impact on the auto industry was the self-driving Waymo vehicle, a modified Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. Redesigned with the latest generation of custom-built radar, LiDAR, vision systems, and an all-new AI computer platform for safe operations. The vehicle is driving itself after all, so it needs the most up-to-date tech and software available.

Chrysler Pacifica + Dodge Durango Make Perfect Family Duo

Friday, March 16th, 2018

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

One thing we see a lot at Miami Lakes Automall are parents that already have a minivan and can’t decide what the next family vehicle should be. We have more than seven brands, and a lot of model options, so the selection of vehicles is pretty huge.

Some parents want the family’s second car to be a little sportier like a Dodge Challenger or Chevy Camaro, but its just isn’t big enough. Or some people think about the Chevy Tahoe and realize, it’s just a little too big and isn’t really that much more unique than a minivan. Sure, the Tahoe has a body like an SUV, but aside from that, not a lot of character. Well, Miami Lakes Automall has the perfect solution to that family dilemma, the Dodge Durango.

A family with a Chrysler Pacifica and a Dodge Durango in the driveway has it all. Both vehicles offer plenty of space for cargo and passengers, but each vehicle serves a different purpose. Both vehicles are ideal vehicles as daily drivers, but when it comes to more specialized outings like road trips, trips to the beach, hauling your boat to the boat ramp, or hitting the town for a night out, each vehicle has its own specialty.

The Chrysler Pacifica is ideal for trips to the beach and road trips because it offers all of the conveniences one could want. The Pacifica is available with three-rows of seating and has room for seven or eight passengers depending on its seating configuration, but just because it has all those seats doesn’t mean they need to be up at all times. The Chrysler Pacifica features Stow ‘n Go seating, which makes it a breeze for users to fold up the vehicle’s second- and third-row seats and stow them away in storage compartments that are built-in to the vehicle’s floor. That option makes the Chrysler Pacifica ideal for longer trips where it’s more important for the couple kids in the back seat to have more space to stretch out rather than have space for all of their friends that won’t be along for the ride.

The Chrysler Pacifica is also extremely fuel efficient, (18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, 22 mpg combined city/highway) so on longer trips and daily trips to soccer practice and dentist appointments, the Chrysler Pacifica is a more economical choice. Additionally, the Pacifica is available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), meaning the vehicle can be powered by a battery, by an engine or a combination of both. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid makes any road trip extremely efficient because the Pacifica Hybrid can travel up to 566 miles on a full tank of gas and fully-charged battery, so that means its affordable and there is less time spent filling up at the gas station.

On the other hand, the Dodge Durango is an ideal option for a large family that needs a vehicle that can offer a little more power and speed when it is needed.

The Dodge Durango is available with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, a 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, and the all-new 6.4L HEMI V8 engine, and the Durango is available with rear-wheel-drive (RWD), which offers an exciting muscle car feel, or with all-wheel-drive (AWD) (Dodge Durango SRT is only available with AWD). Additionally the power of the 5.7L and 6.4L engine is enough power to gives parents just enough thrill behind the wheel.

Miami-Lakes-Dodge-Durango-SRT-Chrysler-PacificaThe 5.7L engine gives the Durango a towing capacity of 7,400 pounds, and the 6.4L engine gives the Durango a best-in-class V8 towing capacity of 8,700 pounds — and both of those capacities are plenty to tow a trailer full of jet skis or even a small boat.

Finally, the Dodge Durango offers families that extra bit of style when wanted. Heading out to South Beach for the night? The Durango has just enough umph to stand out from the crowd.

Want to get that perfect vehicle combination in your driveway? Come by Miami Lakes Automall and see what we have available. Whether you need the Chrysler Pacifica to pair up with your Dodge Durango, or the other way around, we have both vehicles available for you to test drive.
