Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has filed an application to trademark “Angel,” for use with motor vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, their structural parts, trim, and badges.
The trademark clearly takes after the recent Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, and we can’t think of any model more the complete opposite than the Angel. Perhaps it’s Chrysler’s clever way of naming an upcoming all-electric Pacifica. Or, maybe it’s another Challenger variant to add to FCA’s already significant muscle car portfolio.
There’s also the possibility that FCA is simply trademarking Angel to prevent another automaker from using it. It wouldn’t be an awful idea if a competing automaker created a sports car with a contrasting name of Angel as a way to demean the Challenger Demon. Either way, we hope FCA does move forward with using the trademark, even if it’s just to see what clever design it comes up with for the badge.
