Several Dodge models have been adapted to accommodate the SyFy show Defiance.
Now that the hit SyFy show Defiance has returned for its second season, it’s time again to consider a few of the cars featured in the futuristic show. Dodge dealers in Lake Jackson notes that Dodge has lended a few models like a Dodge Charger in Tx and a Dodge Challenger as prominent vehicles in the series.
Defiance is a science fiction show that debuted in the spring of 2013, and is correlated to a video game of the same name released at the same time. Dodge has the ultimate tie-in with its vehicles, the Challenger and Charger being featured in both the television show and video game. Don Davis Dodge released a commercial late this spring showing how the Charger is a defiant vehicle. In the spot, we see as it goes from present day, survives the apocalypse and an alien invasion.
Toward the end of the first season of Defiance, the main character, Joshua Nolan’s, Dodge Chargers start receiving more attention and become characters of their own. These Chargers are modified versions of the vehicles on the market today, with a grittier, tougher appearance as well as the ability to outrun aliens. The multiplayer online video game directly impacts the show, just like the show impacts the video game. This is the first time that a television show and a video game have coexisted in a shared universe, influencing and impacting each other.
Dodge dealers in Lake Jackson note that where the show features a Dodge Charger, the video game highlights the Challenger. Both the Charger and the Challenger are recently revitalized muscle cars from the 1960s and 70s. While these cars have been modernized with their reintroduction, they still have the same love of speed, powerful and performance that made them instantly popular when the debuted.
Don Davis Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram notes that the Dodge Charger in Tx is four-door sedan with an aggressive front-end styling and a coupe like appearance. The Charger is a standard rear-wheel drive vehicle that is available as all-wheel drive, depending on trim. There are five trim levels: SE, SXT, R/T, SRT8 and SRT8 Superbee. The trim levels are paired with a corresponding high performance engine, SE and SXT come standard with a 3.5-liter V6 that gets 292 horsepower, while the R/T comes standard with a 370-hp 5.7-liter V8. The SRT8 gets a 470-hp 6.4-liter V8 engine, both the R/T and SRT8s are available with a Super Track Pak for superior driving performance.
The Dodge Challenger is more like it’s predecessor than the Charger. The Challenger still features a similar appearance and plenty of brawn. The Dodge Challenger is available in three trim levels: SXT, R/T and SRT8 392. The base SXT comes with a 3.6-liter V6 that cranks out 305-horsepower while paired with a five-speed automatic transmission.
