Dodge Brand Introduces 'New Rules' for Buying a Car with Innovative Online Dodge Dart Gift Registry
The Dodge brand introduces the "Dodge Dart Registry," an online program that provides a creative way to raise money toward the purchase of a new Dodge Dart by mobilizing friends and family to help consumers make their new car dreams come true.
"Establishing an online registry is another example of how Dodge continues to create 'New Rules' with the Dodge Dart," said Oliver Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, Chrysler Group LLC. "The registry is designed to make the process of configuring and buying a new Dart more social than ever, in a way that has never been done before. Now, 'New Rules' transcends not only how we design, build and market a car, but redefines how consumers can purchase a new vehicle by mobilizing friends and family to help."
The Dart Registry, www.DodgeDartRegistry.com, allows consumers to configure and customize a Dodge Dart, and set a goal for the amount of money they want to raise to fund it. It then itemizes components of the car-like a steering wheel, shifter, seat, or engine-allowing friends, family or anyone to sponsor the specific parts.
"Just as the Dodge brand has redefined what a compact car can be with the outstanding style, fuel efficiency and class leading safety and technology of the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart, we are also breaking new ground by creating fun and innovative ways for consumers to interact and purchase one," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO - Dodge Brand.
Like any registry, friends and family can ensure they're giving a gift that someone really wants, whether it is for birthdays, graduations or any other gift-giving moments throughout the year. Once registered, an individual has the option to connect to Facebook and Twitter to spread word about their desire to own a new Dodge Dart or, perhaps, thank anyone who has contributed to the effort, all the while communicating and sharing key features of the vehicle through their social channels.
The Dodge Dart registry launches January 20 with a new 30-second commercial titled "How to Change Buying Cars Forever." The spot debuts during the Fox network broadcast of the NFL National Football Conference Championship Game. It explains the registry concept and how it works online, continuing the same dose of fun, creative license and Dodge brand humor introduced in July 2012 with the 90-second "How to Change Cars Forever" commercial. That spot served as a rapid-fire "instructional" on how to make a world-class car today, providing an inside look into the Dodge brand's approach to designing and engineering its much anticipated entry into the compact car segment. The campaign followed with a series of four additional spots in the same tone, all featuring the Jay-Z and Kanye West track, "No Church in the Wild," from their "Watch the Throne" album.
