Dodge

All models Dodge

If you want a handsome rugged pickup truck that appeals to the male ego, then Dodge is your best choice. The Dodge badge has also adorned family cars with equal felicity. For example, the minivan segment came about mainly because of the Caravan. The Dodge Brothers Company began this American automaking outfit in the 1900s. Chrysler which bought the company in 1928 has continued to nurture it. Dodge contrasts Chrysler’s luxury niche with its sporty outlook.

The Coronet that ruled the roost for extended periods in two different avatars, first between 1949 and 1959, and later between 1965 and 1976, was the first Dodge offering that caught buyers’ attention. The Dodge brand grew with Ram,launched in 1981, and Caravan, launched in 1984, both of which continue to rule the roost. Viper, with two successful innings, the first from 1991 to 2010, and the second from 2012 to 2017, kept the brand name alive and kicking. Since 2010, the Ram model has been built under its own nameplate through an independent division.

Dodge identifies with sporty SUVs and large utilitarian cars, and continues to rely on marquee offerings such as Durango, Grand Caravan and Charger. The automaker’s current in-house tuner in the avatar of SRT harks back to the original raw appeal that gave Dodge trucks their legendary muscular mien.
