2015 Tartan Prancer: Meet the Griswolds’ New Ride

Take a look at the 2015 Tartan Prancer.

An Albanian import, the 2015 Tartan Prancer is the Griswold’s ride in the new Vacation

With their new franchise comedy reboot/sequel Vacation on the way to theaters next week, New Line Cinema has just released a faux car commercial for the 2015 Tartan Prancer, the bizarre Albanian import created for the film. Check out the video in the player below!

Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.

Rounding out the cast are Chris Hemsworth (Thor) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), who plays a river rafting guide; and Skyler Gisondo (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb) and Steele Stebbins (A Haunted House 2), who play Rusty”s sons, James and Kevin. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the previous Vacation comedies.

The road comedy adventure marks Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s directorial debut. Goldstein and Daley wrote the script, based on characters created by John Hughes. David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) and Chris Bender (We’re the Millers) are producing, with Marc S. Fischer serving as executive producer.

“We went through a lot of names for the Prancer,” Goldstein says of the film’s unusual automobile. “It was almost going to be the Squirt, I think. There were some pretty offensive ones.”

“At one point it was Colossus,” adds Daley, “like a militaristic thing. But Toby Emmerich, the head of New Line Cinema, thought it should be a ‘friendlier car’ and he was right.”

Vacation hits the big screen July 29.
