September 6, 2023 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Jeep® brand is launching “Dents,” its new campaign for the Grand Cherokee and Grand Cherokee 4xe, across television, social media and digital media channels. The fully integrated brand campaign will launch across broadcast with a 30-second television spot and on the brand’s YouTube channel with a 60-second spot.
“’Dents’ follows our Grand Cherokee through the various stages of its family’s life, making meaningful memories through the dents and scratches it receives over the years,” said Marissa Hunter, senior vice president, Stellantis North America. “For our owners, their Jeep Grand Cherokee is much more than a mode of transportation, it is a member of their family playing a pivotal role in their own life journey. This emotional connection has been built and fortified over decades and now with the expanded lineup, we truly have something for everyone. In our film, as we usher in the electrified model, careful consideration is given to keeping traditions alive as the keys and the memories are passed down to the next generation.”
“Since 1992 the Jeep Grand Cherokee has been enabling adventures,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Available now for 2024 model year in 2-row Grand Cherokee, 3-row Grand Cherokee L and the electrified Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid, the adventures, of all kind, will continue providing long lasting memories.”
This timeless tradition of passing on the keys will be further celebrated as the campaign release date is strategically aligned with young, eager college students packing up and heading back to school now, many of whom will take the wheel of their family car when embarking on their own new adventures, where more meaningful memories are sure to be made.
“Dents” was created by the Jeep brand in partnership with Chicago-based agency, Highdive.
