The Fast & Furious franchise heavily features Dodge performance cars, including the Dodge Charger and Challenger, particularly the SRT.

Chief Marketing Officer of FCA Global Olivier Francois says the Fast & Furious franchise “provides a natural extension” to showcase Dodge’s performance vehicles to car-loving moviegoers and went on to say, “The best co-branded promotional spots are those in which the world of the Fast & Furious films and our world merge” to create unique, creative content.
