Now here’s an interesting bit of news. Chevrolet has just unveiled its own rendition of the famous police cruiser from The Blues Brothers. It was apparently made to pay tribute to the movie and Chevrolet even went as far as hiring actors to help provide entertainment to the unveiling.
Interestingly though, the original Blues Brothers cruisers were not Chevrolet products at all. In fact, the first one was a retired Dodge Monaco police cruiser where as the remake in 2000 featured a Ford LTD Crown Victoria.
So unless there’s a new Blues Brothers on the way with the Chevrolet Cruze as being the featured car, it’s hard to see any connection between The Blues Brothers.
“As we celebrate 100 years of Chevrolet, it’s right that we should mark this by celebrating other elements of American culture,” said Chevrolet UK’s Managing Director, Mark Terry. “We’re the only US brand to truly establish a foothold across all segments of the UK and European car market, and much of that is down to the proud heritage and cultural associations that people make with our brand. The Blues Brothers is an all-time American classic, much like Chevrolet itself.”
