Watch: Jeep Wrangler 4Xe gives rides to a pet dinosaur
Jeep has launched a global marketing campaign in association with the Jurassic World film franchise, and in its latest TV commercial, a pet dinosaur is shown taking a ride in a Jeep Wrangler 4Xe. The idea is scary, but unique for sure. The one-minute video features the owner of the Jeep Wrangler 4Xe adopting an orphaned baby dinosaur as his pet. The video gives us a glimpse of a Jeep Grand Cherokee as well. The TVC also shows how the dinosaur sleeps in the SUV. It looks downright adorable until, in the end, the mummy dinosaur shows up and ruins everything.
Automakers often take unique marketing strategies to reveal their products. Jeep seems to be relying on the latest movie of the Jurassic World franchise to showcase its Wrangler 4Xe. The iconic SUV manufacturer under the Stellantis umbrella's association with Jurassic World is nothing new. To be precise, Jeep Wrangler's relationship with dinosaurs goes way back to 1993.
