How Chevy Is Making It Harder To Steal A Vehicle - 07/01/2015

How Chevy Is Making It Harder To Steal A Vehicle


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - GM has recently announced how Chevy is making it harder to steal a vehicle with the new Theft Alarm Notification feature on its OnStar Stolen Vehicle Assistance program. The new service will be available to eligible subscribers later this summer, and will help prompt a swift response from OnStar advisors and local authorities whenever a vehicle is stolen or broken into.

This new extension of the Stolen Vehicle Assistance feature is only the most recent in a series of new updates to the system that include Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown. With the new Theft Alarm Notification, subscribers can choose to receive alerts via SMS test, email or by phone if a theft attempt triggers their vehicle's alarm system and the alarm sounds.

This new technology is currently an OnStar and Chevy specialized feature, and it is so exciting to see how Chevy is making it harder to steal a vehicle. The system is backed by glass breakage sensors, interior motion sensors and an inclination/tilt sensor, which will sound an alarm if the vehicle is lifted up off the ground, a break-in is attempted or if motion is detected within the vehicle when the system is armed.

Chevy is always breaking the mold with innovative features, and the Theft Alarm Notification feature will be sure to deter auto theft in the next few years. If you would like to stop by and test drive any of our Chevy OnStar equipped vehicles, feel free to stop by your Outerbanks Chevy Dealer today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Stop in for any of your auto or community needs, or feel free to give us a call at (252) 338-9100

Dodge Unleashed The Hemi-Powered Challenger Drag Pak To The Masses - 06/30/2015

Dodge Unleashes A Hemi-Powered Challenger Drag Pack To The Masses


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Earlier this year, Dodge released the all new Challenger Hellcat and the Charger Hellcat to the delight of a patiently waiting public. The Challengers can partially thank their popularity to the Furious 7 film, which is one of the highest grossing films in history, grossing $1.3 billion since its release in April. Now, drivers can be more like their favorite Fast and Furious stars since Dodge unleashed a hemi-powered Challenger Drag Pak to the masses!

The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is a race-prepped version of Dodge's two-door muscle car that is built specifically for drag racing. Let the burnouts begin! The Challenger is a vehicle that is steeped in racing history and lore. The dominating muscle cars of the 1960s and 19702 made their reputations not just with an unmatched power and timeless styling, but also with dominance on the track. Now the Challenger is back to claim its top-spot and seek glory in the racing world.

Racers can choose between two different V8 Hemi engines. The 354-cubic-inch supercharged V8 features the same displacement as the first production HEMI, whereas the naturally aspirated 426-ci version recalls the now-classic motor used in numerous Chrysler Corporation race and road vehicles from the '60s. Both of the engines are powered by a racing-tuned automatic transmission, and the Drag Pak includes multiple chassis upgrades such as bulked up suspension and brakes, 15-inch lightweight wheels and Hoosier drag radials.

The Drag Pak is designed to compete in National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-sanctioned drag races in the Sportman category, and we cannot WAIT to see it tearing up the track now that Dodge unleashed the Hemi-powered Challenger Drag Pak to the masses! If you feel like you would like to give either the Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger a try, stop by your Norfolk Area Dodge Dealer for a test drive today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Stop in for any of your auto or community needs, or feel free to give us a call at (252) 338-9100

General Motors Reveals The New 2016 Chevy Cruze - 06/25/2015

General Motors Reveals The New 2016 Chevy Cruze

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Last night the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze was revealed to a crowd of auto-insiders, press and writers at the Fillmore Theater in Downtown Detroit. General Motors reveals the new 2016 Chevy Cruze is longer, lighter and gets 40 mpg from its 1.4-liter, four-cylinder Ecotec turbo engine. The 2016 Cruze will pull into dealerships in the spring of next year, and is currently the fifth newly designed model that Chevrolet has released this year. The goal for Chevy is restoring that reputation of ingenuity and excitement the brand had in 1950s and '60s.

Since the beginning of the year, Chevrolet has unveiled redesigns for Volt, Camaro, Malibu and the Spark, and the reveal of the all-new 2016 Cruze was just as successful as the earlier models. GM CEO Mary Barra was on hand and took the cover off of the new Cruze Wednesday night to the delight of those in attendance.

General Motors reveals that the new 2016 Chevy Cruze will weigh in at about 250 pounds less than the '15 model, accomplished through a retooled aluminum engine block. This block is made by press-hardened steel, which is a process of heating steal blanks until they become malleable. Bumper-to-bumper, the new Cruze is lengthened by 2.7 inches, which gives 2 more inched of legroom in the rear-seat.

As with it's other Chevrolet models, GM infuses the new Cruze with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, which customers have the option of purchasing. A modern style theme, similar to that of the new Impala and Malibu, gives the Cruze a more premium look which John Cafaro, Executive Director of Chevrolet Design, says is and example of craftsmanship, content, quality and a fresh interpretation on an unmistakable Chevy identity.

It will be an exciting day when the 2016 Chevy Cruze rolls into our dealership– we cannot WAIT to see it! If you would like to check out any of the other brand new Chevy models released this year, stop by! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

The 2016 Chevy Volt Could Get 43 MPG And A 106MPGe - 06/19/2015

The 2016 Chevy Volt Could Get 43 MPG And A 106MPGe

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - General Motors has not been cheap when it comes to the amount of news the automotive company has been releasing in regards to the 2016 Chevy Volt. This includes a lower price ($33,995 which is $1,175 cheaper than the 2015 model) and specifications on the upgraded Voltec drivetrain. However one thing Volt enthusiasts have been anxious about is the official EPA MPG and MPGe numbers. After digging around, we might have found out that those official numbers might be higher than originally anticipated.

After searching through the GM-Volt forum, it was noticed that under fuel economy, the numbers were changed from 41 MPG as quoted by GM to 43 MPG. This in turn brings the MPGe ratings (using combined electric driving range and gas engine) all the way up to 106 MPGe, compared to the 37 MPG and 98 MPGe for the current 2015 Volt.  Although this is not necessarily set in stone, it is so exciting that the 2016 Chevy Volt could get 43 MPG and a 106MPGe! It looks like the total driving range has gone from 420 miles to 430, then back down to 420 miles.

GM does not plan to release the official fuel economy numbers until sometime next month, even though you can make a deposit to GM to reserve your 2016 Volt in early adopter states like California. Just the fact that the 2016 Chevy Volt could get 43 MPG and a 106MPGe, is thrilling to say the least! You can bet, however, that Perry Auto Group will have all the latest news and updates regarding the 2016 Chevy Volt, and you could always stop by and take a test drive in our current 2015 modelsPerry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Ram Dives Head First Into The Luxury Truck Pool - 06/13/2015

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - In the world of luxury trucks there are few, but Ram dives head first into the luxury truck pool with the Ram Rebel and the Laramie. The demand for pick-up trucks with the interior of a luxury SUV is interestingly on the rise, and Ram is definitely taking the challenge head on. Both of the truck models are priced understandably high at over $50,000, but it makes sense when all of the features are considered.

Let's start with the Ram Rebel (we have to admit, we're OBSESSED with the name!), which is a workhorse that's been completely optimized to do well on less-than-friendly terrain. Upgrades include a factory lift, skid plates and tow hooks over the stock Ram 1500, plus the name "RAM" has been emphasized and embossed at every available opportunity. The Rebel's main competition includes the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and Ford's F-150 Raptor.

Ram Dives Head First Into The Luxury Truck Pool

The Laramie comes equipped with a 5.7 liter V8 rear-wheel drive, and will have a starting base cost of just over $51,000. Ram indeed highlights the fact that the new Laramie Limited is more geared for well-heeled suburban chrome enthusiasts than cattle famers who would use the truck for actual "truck" work. However, this is a rapidly growing segment. Many people want to have the look and attitude of a pick-up truck, but the luxury of a first class suburban-like car. The premium feature list is long, and includes things such as all-black leather seating, real wood interior components and unique badges. When all is said and done, the Laramie could potentially run anyone just over $57,000 with the diesel and 4x4, before the pick-and-choose options are applied.

Ram Dives Head First Into The Luxury Truck Pool

Ram dives head first into the luxury truck pool, and is not alone as it joins with Ford Motor Co. as the the only automaker with a full-size truck that doesn't offer a midsize alongside it. You can bet that Perry Auto is your spot for all of the Ram truck models! Feel free to stop and take one out for a test drive today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

The Dodge Brothers Take You Back To The Beginning In Their New Ads - 06/12/2015

The Dodge Brothers Take You Back To The Beginning In Their New Ads

ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The Dodge Brothers take you back to the beginning in their new ads, with the initial "First Dodge" (shown below) showing how the competitive spirit of John and Horace Dodge developed early on. The four new ads highlight the 2015 Dodge Dart and Durango as well as the Scat Pack trims of the Challenger and Charger, and were directed by Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody.


The first 60-second ad shown above shows how this competitive spirit from the Dodge boys developed early on as the brothers see a young boy with a bike and decide to make an even better concocting bike of their own, the first vehicle they ever built.

Widen+Kennedy produced the four ads, which will air on cable broadcast channels during prime-time sports and entertainment programming such as NASCAR races, Major League Baseball and "Undercover Boss". The ads also include social media components that allow Facebook, Instagram and Twitter users to follow the #DodgeBrothers hashtag. The ads will not air until October.

As Chief Marketing Officer of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Olivier Francois stated, "Today's Dodge vehicles have the same passion for performance as John and Horace Dodge established in the first vehicles they crafted more than one hundred years ago."

As more ads come out, you can bet we'll be showcasing them on our Facebook page! We have TONS of 2015 Dodge vehicles at Perry Auto Brothers. If you would like to take a test drive in the ad-featured Dodge Dart, feel free to stop by! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Warm Weather Car Care Tips - 06/04/2015

Warm Weather Car Care Tips


ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Warm weather can be tough on your vehicle, especially here in North Carolina. Intense heat can destroy batteries and put stress on the tires and cooling system. Thanks to the lowest summer gas prices since 2009, many Americans will be hitting the road this summer for vacation, and to insure a safe trip you may want to check out these warm weather car care tips. By making sure your vehicle is running smoothly you can avoid breakdowns or car problems that will definitely put a thorn in your summer plans.
  • Heat zaps life away from your battery.  Many car owners believe that battery problems only occur in the winter, which could not be more wrong. Heat and vibration are the two WORST things for a car battery, and ultimately lead to engine failure. If you car's battery is more than three years old, make sure to have it checked by a certified technician before heading out on the road. 
  • Maintain and check up on your air conditioning. NOTHING, and we mean nothing, is worse than the air conditioning going out in the middle of the summer. Driving around in a car when it's 80+ degrees out is hard enough on your vehicle. Take out the air conditioning and good luck trying to go anywhere fast. Even a marginally operating system will fail in the hot weather, so have your air conditioning checked out by a qualified technician. 
  • The greatest cause of summer breakdowns is cooling system failure. The cooling system should be completely flushed out and refilled every two years. Be sure that you understand the level, condition and concentration of the coolant should also be checked periodically, especially when it first starts to warm up after the long winter. 
  • Check your windshield wipers. Your windshield wipers have been working overtime since January. A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can also pose a safety hazard. Replace worn windshield wiper blades and have plenty of windshield wiper fluid handy. 
  • Your brakes have been working hard all winter, make sure they're okay! Your brakes have kept you from sliding off the road since January, so make sure they are up to par before you head out this summer. If you notice pulsations, grabbing noises or longer stopping distances, bring your vehicle to see a certified technician ASAP. 
Just a quick, 20-minute once over can mean the difference between a fun and relaxing family vacation or being stuck in the middle of nowhere with no air conditioning, waiting for the tow truck. NO FUN! Feel free to share these warm weather car care tips with your friends or family! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Will Fiat-Chrysler Put The Hellcat Engine Into A Jeep? - 06/02/2015

Will Fiat-Chrysler Put The Hellcat Engine Into A Jeep?


ELIZABETH CITY, NC – When Fiat-Chrysler brought the Dodge brand into the fold last year, there were major concerns throughout the automotive industry that the SRT-badged vehicles, (Grand Cherokee SRT and 300 SRT) would soon cease to exist completely. Fast forward to mid-2015, it looks like only the 300 SRT will be a casualty of FCA's reorganization, as there are plans to keep the Grand Cherokee SRT alive – by entirely rebranding it. 

No that does not mean that the trendy Grand Cherokee will become a Dodge, however many do expect the SRT label to be dropped and replaced by the Trackhawk label, a name which Fiat Chrysler trademarked in 2014. While that is all great and exciting, the biggest possible change to the Grand Cherokee is the integration of the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 fitted Hellcat engine, made famous by the Challenger and Charger Hellcat models. So, will Fiat-Chrysler put the Hellcat engine into a Jeep Cherokee? Car and Driver reported that when the Grand Cherokee receives its major update later this year that will include the Hellcat engine.

By putting the Hellcat's 650 pound-feet of torque into the Grand Cherokee, something minor changes have to be made. This is especially relevant because of the Cherokee's all-wheel driving system, and that's why we could indeed see the engine's potency detuned or at least limited in lower gears to help preserve the drivetrain.

So, will Fiat-Chrysler put the Hellcat engine into a Jeep Cherokee? We hope so! Whatever changes need to be made to the current Cherokee to get the Hellcat engine to run, we say make them! We cannot WAIT to see the updated, 2016 Grand Cherokee, and we will definitely be keeping you up to date on all the news regarding it!  If you would like more information on the Jeep GrandCherokee, give us a call! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

The Evolution Of The Hellcat Logo - 05/30/2015

The Evolution Of The Hellcat Logo

ELIZIBETH CITY, NC – This past year, Dodge has done a phenomenal job with completely rebranding and promoting its muscle machine, the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Dodge deserves tons of credit for building the now iconic 6.2 liter HEMI V-8 Hellcat engine currently powering the Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Charger SRT Hellcat, but it also deserves the credit for giving the engine such a unique, and honestly AWESOME, name.

The evolution of the Hellcat logo is definitely interesting. The first Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat did not have the now-familiar feline logo that graced the vehicle last May. Originally the Hellcat vehicles were just supposed to have the “supercharged” Dodge badging, said Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis in a recent interview with Automotive News. But Dodge did something that more auto companies should do, they closely monitored the public’s reaction to the Hellcat logo on social media and eventually chose to add the logo to its production cars after hearing the fan base’s feedback. The change was so last minute, adds Kuniskis, that the cars used for the Challenger Hellcat press unveiling didn’t even have it initially.

Just like the Challengers and Chargers themselves, the Hellcat logo had to go through a rigorous design process that involved tons of rough drafts and sketches. Early sketches show everything from an “angry housecat” to something commonly refused with the Voltron logo. Dodge however, choose the right one, and the rest we can say….is history!

With the evolution of the Hellcat logo, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger SLT Hellcat logos will go down in muscle car glory along with the Cobras, Road Runners, ‘Cudas and Mustangs. If you would like more information on the now iconic muscle car, give us a call! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

2016 Camaro Will Begin A Cross-Country Promo Tour - 05/14/2015

2016 Camaro Will Begin A Cross-Country Promo Tour
ELIZABETH CITY, NC – The automotive industry is waiting for this Saturday, May 16th, to FINALLY feast their eyes on the 2016 Chevy Camaro, which will be revealed in Detroit during an exclusive reveal party.  The festivities this weekend include a "Camaro Museum" display of all of the most historically significant in the Camaro lineup, and chances to take laps on Belle Isle's race track (already onsite for the Belle Isle Grand Prix which take place at the end of May).  After this debut on the 16th, the 2016 Camaro will begin a cross-country promo tour ending at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, which is also about the same time it will be hitting the dealerships. Can you say ROAD TRIP!!!!

The 2016 Camaro will be making countless public appearances at events throughout the country. These include a cameo at the Indianapolis 500, May 24th through the 25th, the MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati on July 14th (we believe it will be given to the game's MVP seeing as Chevy has a long standing sponsorship with Major League Baseball). After that, the Camaro will make its way back to the Motor City and will be seen on Michigan's Woodward Dream Cruise on August 15th, and then to the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in California from August 13-16th. 

The car will also return for the previously mentioned Belle Isle for the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix on May 29-31, and entire fleet of Camaros will be on hand in Bowling Green, Kentucky for Camaro Fest on August 7-9. So, if you are just itching to get a first hand glimpse of the sixth-generation Camaro, you might have a chance before the cars hit the dealerships in the fall you may just have a chance by attending any of these events. 

The 2016 Camaro will begin a cross-country promo tour immediately following the May 16th reveal, but if you would like any more information on the 2016 Camaro, or would like to take any of our 2015 Camaros for a test drive, pay us a visit!  Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W.

Dodge Is Planning On Bringing Back The Viper ACR - 05/08/2015

Dodge Is Planning On Bringing Back The Viper ACR

ELIZABETH CITY, NC – If you are a fan snakes, well the kind with four wheels anyway, listen up! It has been confirmed today that Dodge is planning on bringing back the Viper ACR, and the auto company will make it THE FASTEST Viper on the track when it goes on sale this fall! In other words, the Viper is back baby! Dodge CEO and President Tim Kuniskis said earlier this morning that the 2016 Viper ACR will be "the fastest street-legal Viper track car ever" Exact performance specifications however, have not been released at this time.

Dodge is planning on bringing back the Viper ACR, which was introduced for the 1999 model year, and was last produced for the 2010 model year. The company also creates non-street legal versions of the ACR specifically for racing only. The top speed of the new Viper ACR is 177 m.p.h, which is in fact LESS than the Dodge SRT Viper at 204 m.p.h, but officials at Dodge say the aerodynamics and powerful brakes, allow the car to complete a lap on the track faster than any other Viper.

This exciting decision to bring back the ACR is one of several actions that Kuniskis has done to gain publicity for the Viper and generate a renewed interest in the Viper brand. Kuniskis also stated that pricing for the Viper ACR will be released in the coming weeks. There has been a surge of performance car news recently as the economy starts to improve and consumer's feel more inclined to treat themselves. Both Ford and Chevrolet have sports car models slated to be released soon, it was only a matter of time before Dodge jumped on the bandwagon as well!

If you would like more information on this ASTOUNDING performance car, feel free to give us a call or stop by, we would love to chat about it! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909.

Ram Truck Debuted Two New Ads During The Kentucky Derby - 05/04/2015

Ram Truck Debuted Two New Ads During The Kentucky Derby
ELIZABETH CITY. NC – Ram Truck debuted two new ads during the Kentucky Derby, and if you were tuning in to the 141st Running of the Kentucky Derby this past Saturday, you may have noticed the two new ads; "The Pack" and "Courage is Already Inside".   "True to stand apart from the pack determination of the Ran truck brand, we wanted our Kentucky Derby advertising to once again make a difference and start a conversation" says Global Chief Marketing Officer of Fiat Chrysler Olivier Francois.

Both of the ads play on different emotions, with one being a more humorous as, and the other a bit more expressive. In "The Pack" a sheep leaves its flock to stand up to the border collie attempting to herd the flock, eventually entering into a good old "stare down" with the dog that the sheep wins. The ad also features Ram Truck's official spokesperson, Sam Elliott.


The second ad, "Courage is Already Inside" focuses and celebrates the characters of strong women who have put in the hard work to overcome the odds and achieve their goals. The women featured include two-time Kentucky Oats-winning jockey Rosie Napravnik, Eva Shockey who was the first women in 30 years to make the cover of Field and Stream magazine, Academy of Country Music's most-awarded female vocalist Miranda Lambert, professional arena cross/motocross racer Tiana Falls, and others.


Ram Truck debuted two new ads during the Kentucky Derby and this is the sixth consecutive year that Ram is the "Official Truck" of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby and the exclusive automotive partner.  Both spots are designed to signify Ram's leadership among US truck builders and its steady growth in the market since its 2009 inception.  If you would like to test drive the official truck of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, stop by!

The 2015 Chrysler 200 Takes Home Top IIHS Honors For Safety
ELIZABETH CITY, NC – The revamped and updated 2015 Chrysler 200 is universally known as a great vehicle, and now there are independent ratings that prove that it is indeed one of the safest vehicles currently on the road! The IIHS, (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), has named the brand-new 2015 Chrysler 200 a 2014 Top Safety Pick+, its current highest rating available. IIHS President Adrian Lund says, “The 200 aced the challenging small overlap front test with a good rating in every measurement category. Chrysler should also be commended for offering forward collision warning and autonomous braking on this mainstream midsize car.” Pretty exciting huh? We think so!

The 2015 Chrysler 200 takes home top IIHS honors for safety year after year, and the IIHS testing simulates a number of potential collisions that include side impact with a large vehicle, roof-crash consistent with a rollover, a rear collision capable of inducing whiplash and many others! The IIHS noted that “the driver’s space was maintained well, and injury measures recorded on the dummy indicated a low risk of any significant injuries in a real-world crash of this severity.”

Al Gardner, President and CEO of Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC, said, “With a new nine-speed transmission, innovative available all-wheel-drive system and 60 safety security features, the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating for the new 200 is the icing on the cake!” The 2015 Chrysler 200 takes home top IIHS honors for safety, and we could not be more excited to offer such an AMAZING vehicle for our customers!

This specific commercial shows groups of men and women in their 20s taking on a mix of urban and rural adventures.  The commercial and the song are designed to evoke this sense of exploration and adventured, and includes the line “Long live the pioneers, rebels and mutineers, go forth and have no fear, come close and lend an ear”. The Renegade is a subcompact SUV, and is the most important vehicle that Chrysler will launch this year, and the company is hoping the subcompact SUV will hit both the U.S and International market with a bang.

Chrysler Dares To Shock The Auto Industry - 04/16/2015

Chrysler Dares To Shock The Auto Industry
ELIZABETH CITY, NC – Since the release of the updated Dodge Charger last year, the “big bodied” cars have been picking up popularity, and that includes the all-new 2015 Chrysler 300. Chrysler dares to shock the auto industry and just looking at the new 300, one can definitely see the appeal.  

The 2015 300 has a sort of stubby, feisty look that is uniquely admired and sought after. The front and rear portions of the body don’t hang past the wheels very far, which is the same feature that makes many BMWs look so good. With a bigger grille and a number of different styling upgrades, the 300 is finally bringing the “wow” factor like it did back in ’05.

One of the major upgrades, not necessarily to the physical look of the car, is the Mobile Internet connection. The car is a big, moving Wi-Fi hotspot, as are most of the vehicles in the GM lineup. And not just slow moving, this Internet connection is said to move quicker than most cellular Wi-Fi service, think of all the work that could be done!

Chrysler dares to shock the auto industry and this 363-horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V8 sedan is a luxurious ode to the dying breed of the full-size sedan. With superb handling and a build like nothing else on the market, the 2015 Chrysler 300 will continue to succeed in a class where many have tried and failed.

If you would like to give the all-new 2015 Chrysler 300 a test drive, swing by or give us a call! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Stop in for any of your auto or community needs, or feel free to give us a call at (252) 338-9100

“Game of Thrones” Star Peter Dinklage Narrates The New Chrysler 300 Ad - 04/10/2015


ELIZABETH CITY, NC – Chrysler, thanks to the noted “Imported From America” Superbowl ads, has long pushed the idea of “Made In America” in its marketing campaigns. The new campaign, "The Kings & Queens of America” is no different. Chrysler presents a new commercial for the updated and refreshed 300 sedans that focus on the American path to achievement and “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage, narrates the new Chrysler 300 ad


“The Kings & Queens of America” ad is a 60-second spot, and features images of Americans who have “created their own success”. These include entrepreneur Phil Ivey, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and San Antonia Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon. Oliver Francois, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ chief marketing officer, said in a statement; “Our latest homage to the relentless and proud is ‘The Kings and Queens of America,’ where we recognize nobility not as a birthright but an earned designation”.

“Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage, narrates the new Chrysler 300 ad, and getting Dinklage to narrate the ad is a genius move by Fiat Chrysler, anything with a “Game of Thrones” affiliation is immediately given attention to. Dinklage has won both Golden Globe Awards and Emmy awards for his portrayal of the youngest Lannister in “Game of Thrones” and is a major character in the series, as well as a majority fan favorite.


The all-new Chrysler 300 features 363 horsepower and best-in-class AWD technology, which make the model the most luxurious and sophisticated in its class. The refurbished 2015 Chrysler 300 was introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November, and are currently on sale now.  The new campaign is by the Weiden+Kennedy agency in Portland, and is the same agency behind Chrysler's groundbreaking and innovative Eminem Super Bowl ad of 2011.
