The 2011 Super Bowl commercial that introduced the new Chrysler 200 was remarkable, with exquisitely photographed scenes of Detroit and rap superstar Eminem boasting, “This is the Motor City and this is what we do.”

But the Chrysler 200 turned to be a lot less than remarkable, basically a warmed-over Sebring that was far behind the curve in the high-stakes midsize-car segment, which made the meaningful ad about Chrysler’s rebirth seem like so much hype.

This time, they got it right. The completely redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200 is everything that the previous model was supposed to be, and it finally gives the renamed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles something to compete with the Camrys, Accords and Fusions of the world.

As always, this year’s Super Bowl was supported by plenty of multimillion dollar car advertisements, with some raising more questions than answers. For those of you still wondering what exactly you were being sold, here’s a look at some of the more interesting autos showcased during the game.

As reported on Autos Section –

Maserati Ghibli (pictured above)
The commercial for the Maserati Ghibli was called “Strike,” but it could’ve easily been named “First Strike.” While the $66,900 345 hp sports sedan is the Italian automaker’s first relatively mass-market car — and aimed at the likes of the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and other established mid-size luxury depicted in absentia in the ad as big, slow, lazy giants about to be taken out by their nimble new adversary — it will soon be followed by its first SUV, which is expected to be its best-seller, despite the fact that it will surely being bigger and less nimble than the Ghibli.
