TriviaEdit

  • In real life, Bravado is a company that manufactures bras for pregnant women. This may be a play on the fact that the real-life counterpart of the Bravado, Dodge has a badge that is considered by some to resemble a diagram of the female reproductive system, when in fact it is the head of a ram.
    • The bull's mouth of the Bravado logo will look like a glans penis (male sexual organ) when observed closely.
    • Bravado seems to play on its car names relating to the ram on its logo, with names such as Buffalo and Bison (both four-legged mammals sporting horns).
    • Besides its logo and its models being represented by animals relating to the cattle family, it's a reference to Taurus being the astrological/astronomical sign after Aries (is represented by a member of the sheep family while Taurus is represented by a member of the cattle family). 
  • Bravado is defined as "a bold manner or a show of boldness intended to impress or intimidate."
  • By 2013, it appears that Bravado neared bankruptcy at one point, and was bailed out by the U.S. government using taxpayer money. This parodies the actual bailout of the auto industry in 2008.
