Dodge was founded in 1900 as the Dodge Brothers Company by brothers Horace Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge. The company was originally a parts supplier for Detroit-based automakers and did not begin to build complete automobiles until 1915, before the Chrysler Corporation was founded. After the Dodge brothers’ sudden death in 1920, the company was sold to Dillon, Read & Co. in 1925 before being sold to Chrysler in 1928, and has remained under Chrysler’s ownership ever since. Dodge has withstood multiple ownership changes at Chrysler from 1998 – 2009.
Before the 1970s, Dodge vehicles mainly consisted of trucks and full-sized passenger cars. After the 1973 oil crisis, Chrysler developed the “K-car”, a platform of compact to midsize cars which was launched in the 1981 model year. The K platform and its derivatives are credited with reviving Chrysler’s business in the 1980s, and one of the cars they spawned was the Dodge Caravan, widely credited as being the first production minivan and pioneer of the minivan platform.
Dodge vehicles are known for providing stylish and reliable rides which deliver high performance and sportiness at an affordable price. For example, the Charger and Challenger “Hellcat” models which are powered by the 707 horsepower Hellcat V8 engine, the most powerful engine Chrysler has ever produced, as well as the 645 horsepower V10 Viper and the high-performance SRT trim level.
In 2011, the Dodge brand, the Ram brand, and the Dodge Viper were separated. Today, Dodge is one brand, Ram is a separate brand which produces trucks, and the Viper is sold under Dodge’s SRT (Street and Racing Technology) performance brand.
Dodge’s current model lineup includes the Charger full-size sedan, the Challenger muscle car, the Dart compact sedan, the Viper sports car, the Journey crossover, the Durango SUV, and the Grand Caravan minivan.
