The Franchise has grossed more than $5 billion and its visibility and reach are monstrous. And Dodge has been an integral part of the story. Case in point:  Dom Toretto’s vintage 1970 classic Dodge Charger.

“Dodge vehicles have played a pivotal role in the ‘Fast’ saga, helping to fuel this incredible franchise for nearly two decades,” said Olivier Francois, Global Chief Marketing Officer, Stellantis. “Since the beginning, Universal Pictures has shown its commitment to our partnership by creating stories where some of the world’s most iconic and significant performance vehicles become beloved characters and an important part of the ‘Fast’ family.”
