Dodge

Dodge has a storied history that goes back to 1900, but it’s biggest claim to fame was its muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. And, that heritage still lives on today with models like the Challenger and Charger, both of which can be had with a 707-horsepower, Hemi V-8. The Challenger has also been offered in Demon form with even better performance. Outside of muscle cars, the Dodge brand is also known for the Durango SUV and Dodge Grand Caravan. The company still sells the Dodge Journey, but it seems as if nobody really buys it, and it’s beyond due for retirement. Dodge Ram pickup trucks are now sold under the RAM brand aren’t associated with the Dodge name anymore.

Dodge should be introducing next-gen versions of the Challenger and Charger in the next few years, and maybe even a replacement for the Journey. For now, however, the brand keeps a small lineup of just five vehicles that all start below the $30,000 mark, with the exception of the Dodge Durango that starts at $30,150.

History of Dodge Logos

History of Dodge Logos

Since Dodge recently revived one of its logos for an upcoming EV, let’s take a look at some of the most notable logos the brand has had since its inception

Dodge revealed its electrification plans a couple of months back starting with an “American eMuscle”. Not a lot was revealed about the electric muscle car since it is far from its launch, but the company gave a few glimpses of it. While the teaser showed just silhouettes, we noticed that the car had borne a different logo. No, it wasn’t a new logo. It was the ‘Fratzog’ logo that the Dodge cars proudly wore back in the 60s and 70s.

Given this throwback by Dodge, we decided to present to you the most notable logos that the automaker has used since its inception.

The Plymouth Barracuda may return this year, but It will be under the Dodge Brand

With the exception of an electric Dodge Muscle car that will arrive in 2024, Stellantis has been awfully quiet regarding any performance models. It seems this might change, as Dodge is rumored to be bringing back one of the most iconic Muscle cars ever made – the Barracuda. Of course, the brand that used to sit under Dodge in the Chrysler portfolio is long gone, so if the Barracuda is making a comeback, it will be as a Dodge model. Here’s what we know so far.

Dodge Will Milk That Old Mercedes Platform Even More With An Electric "Muscle" Car in 2024

Dodge Will Milk That Old Mercedes Platform Even More With An Electric "Muscle" Car in 2024

Dodge has confirmed an electric muscle car is coming in 2024, and it could be an old-school design with a yesteryear logo!

It was inevitable, but it’s still a surprise. After staying mum for quite some time, Dodge has finally announced its arrival to the EV scene. As a muscle car manufacturer that caters to the purists primarily, it kind of goes against the grain to bow down to the ions. But, when the only other option is to fade away into oblivion forever, you have to succumb to it. And, that’s what Dodge did.

The company, however, kept its pride by saying that “Dodge WILL NOT sell electric cars. Dodge WILL sell American eMuscle. Well, tomato-Tomahto, but man, Dodge managed to hype this inevitability! The company announced a new EV model for 2024, and it will be a Muscle car, in case that wasn’t clear. What are we looking at? 1,000+ horses?

8 Cars You Might Not Realize We’re Based On the Dodge Viper

The Dodge Viper lives on through these 8 cars...kind of

It’s common practice for small boutique manufacturers to base their products on other carmaker’s platforms. Most times, it’s only the engines that are borrowed, but there are more than a few cases where chassis and even whole vehicles are being used as a basis for a new car. In the high-performance segment, the Corvette is the most popular choice on which other cars are based. However, the Viper platform is equally, if not more, capable and there are more than a few cars based on it.

2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock HPE1000 by Hennessey

2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock HPE1000 by Hennessey

With the HPE1000 package, the Challenger Super Stock makes 110 horses and 84 pound-feet of torque more than the standard model on the dyno

Dodge unveiled a special-edition model of the Challenger Redeye Widebody last year called the Challenger Super Stock. The car comes with the famous 6.2-liter, V-8 supercharged HEMI engine that churns out over 800 horses. Hennessey brought this car over to its factory and equipped it with its HPE1000 Performance Upgrade package. The result? 1,000+ horses on paper, but around 800 horses on the dyno. In Hennessey’s defense, it is still more than the Challenger Super Stock’s dyno figures.

But, what about a car that can make 3,250 horses and clock sub-seven-second times? You’ll probably tell me to get out of here, but hey, I’m not kidding.

Will Dugas, the owner of a second-gen Dodge ‘Juggernaut’ Viper, has managed to complete a quarter-mile in 6.8 seconds at the Hail Mary Derby! This is now officially the world’s quickest Dodge Viper. That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

What is the Cheapest Dodge?

The Dodge Journey wears the crown for cheapest in the Dodge lineup with a starting price of just $22,995, which isn’t a bad price for a midsized crossover. Of course, Dodge couldn’t charge much for the Journey as it went into production back in 2008 and has never seen a real redesign since. Dodge has a bad habit of letting models live longer than they should, and the Journey is a prime example of this. While it might be the cheapest and will get the job done, the chassis underneath is old and outdated, as is the technology inside. Be that as it may, Dodge still managed to move nearly 100,000 examples of the Journey last year, which really isn’t bad for an 11-year-old design in the grand scheme of things.

What is the Sportiest Dodge?

Believe it or not, the Charger, Challenger, and Durango are all sporty in their own right, and all three can take home the trophy for being the sportiest. The Charger is the brand’s only sedan offering and, if you’re into sedans, you’ll find that it’s a pretty sporty proposition for something that starts below $20,000. It’s definitely sportier than comparable offerings from Ford and Chevy. The Challenger is our personal favorite and is a pretty sporty coupe with a lot of muscle car DNA built in. The Dodge Durango is a prime example of what a sporty SUV is supposed to look like, and it can even be had with a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8.

What is the Most Popular Dodge?

Dodge’s most popular model is the Dodge Grand Caravan, with sales totaling 151,927 for all of 2018, with the second best seller being the Journey (yes the one that it seems nobody still buys). If you add the sales of the Charger (around 80,000 for 2018) and the Challenger (around 66,000 for 2018) they wouldn’t match the high sales number of the Grand Caravan. Part of the Caravan’s success, however, is the fact that it’s used largely by municipalities and is also great for customization for handicap drivers.

What is the Most Expensive Dodge?

With the Dodge Viper no longer in the lineup, Dodge’s most expensive model is the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. It is powered by the same 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 but delivers 797 Horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. It’s the closest you can get to the now sold-out Dodge Demon and commands an entry price of $77,945. That’s $43,000 more than the entry-level Challenger. If you’re interested in sedans, the most expensive Charger is the SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower and an entry price of $67,495.

What is the Fastest Dodge?

The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is actually, somehow, 1 mph faster than the Challenger Hellcat Redeye with a claimed top speed of 204 mph. Be that as it may, the Challenger Hellcat Redeye is able to hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and run a 10.8-second quarter-mile straight off the production line. If that’s not fast enough for you, then you shouldn’t be looking at an American car company to quench your thirst for speed.

Are Dodges Reliable?

How reliable a Dodge really is varies greatly depending on who you ask. According to JD Power, Dodge is ranked No. 29 in the U.S. out of all major automakers, beating out only Fiat, Land Rover, and Volvo. According to JD Power, Dodge has been found to have 178 problems per 100 vehicles built. On the other hand, Repair Pal ranks that Dodge brand with a four out of five rating, or No. 15 out of 32 car brands. According to that outlet, the average cost of repair is $580, which is $51 below average, while the frequency of unexpected repairs comes down to 0.3 times per year, 0.1 times below average. 13 percent of all unscheduled repairs for Dodge models is considered severe. So, as you can see, there are polarizing opinions.
