Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, U.S., hides some great little Easter eggs in and on its vehicles. Here are a few we think fans of Jeep, Ram, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo might like.
The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler has multiple Easter eggs hidden on it. We won’t give them all away, but this little Jeep on the rim is too cool not to share.
When Jeep brought the new Renegade to the New England Motor Press for a preview photo session, our own Craig Fitzgerald spotted two great new Easter eggs. The first is a little Jeep icon driving along the base of the windshield. Look closely and one can see that Jeep didn’t just make those little dots uniform, but they turn into boulders that the little Jeep is driving over.
The second renegade Easter egg is a small grill hidden in a tail light.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio
Every mechanic knows the terror of starting a brake job and suddenly thinking, “Hey, what vehicle was I just working on!?” The Alfa Stelvio will help calm things down with the brand neatly printed in a cursive font on each brake caliper. In two places.
Alfa Romeo 4C
We spotted the little 4C logo hidden in the Alfa Romeo’s headlamp.
Have you ever been driving along in your pickup and suddenly you forget your trigonometry? Heck, who hasn’t?! Ram has a quick little cheat sheet for you including the formulas for sine, cosine and tangent and a handy protractor molded into a panel inside of the cabin. We won’t tell you where. You will have to go look for yourself. If you have recurring nightmares about an upcoming math final exam, the Ram pickup has the Easter egg you need.
Fiat 500 Abarth
Fiat doesn’t hide the scorpion logo on the engine cover of the 500 Abarth, but we love the look and wish other automakers would do more interesting things with that plastic cover.
Fiat 124 Spider
We don’t think this one was intentional by FCA, but if you look closely at the glass of a new Fiat 124 Spider you will see the MOPAR logo. Maybe just a friendly reminder that the Fiat 124 is perhaps not just a Miata underneath after all?
If you know of any other FCA brand Easter eggs or others by any brand, please post a hint in the comments wherever you find this story posted.
