Dodge History

 
Dodge is one of the most popular brands in America, known for its rugged looks, intelligent engineering, and pure muscle. Associated with Chrysler's performance division, Dodge models utilize state-of-the-art engineering, making them some of the fastest and most efficient cars on the market.

Initially called the Dodge Brothers Company, the brand was founded in 1900 by Horace and John Dodge. Though the company started as a supplier for Detroit-based auto companies, it began building its own vehicles in 1915. One of the company's first models was the Dodge Model 30, one of the first vehicles to use standard features like an all-steel body construction, a 12-volt electrical system, a sliding-gear transmission, and more. Dodge also made vehicles for the US Army at this time, noted for their durability.

After the death of the Dodge Brothers in 1920, the company was traded between various automakers before it was eventually sold to Chrysler in 1928. Known for quality and affordability, Dodge introduced the "Wind Stream" look in the '30s in order to increase aerodynamics and styling. Dodge also developed a Luxury Liner series at the end of the '30s, adding incredible refinement. By WWII, the company concentrated its efforts on war materials.

Dodge was a steady brand after the war. By the 1960s, the brand developed some of the most iconic muscle cars in the history of the industry. These models include the Charger, Coronet, Super Bee, and Challenger. With the race-ready Hemi V8 available to ordinary drivers, Dodge became one of America's favorite brands.

Today, the brand is known for its performance division. The Charger and Challenger are the most powerful muscle cars in the industry, while models like the Durango, Journey and Grand Caravan expand the brand's lineup. We can't wait to see what this iconic company does next.
