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.

2022 Dodge Durango

2022 Dodge Durango

An aging monster living on borrowed time but still a decent choice on an overcrowded market

Dodge’s muscle SUV is in its eleventh year of production and it will probably be the last before it gets a new generation. The changelog happens to be with the base SXT getting seven seats as standard along with blindspot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The brand decided to ax the SRT Hellcat trim with the beastly 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8, which is a bit of shame.

The Dodge Hellcat's End Is Closer Than We All Thought

The Dodge Hellcat’s End Is Closer Than We All Thought

Nothing good lasts forever, and the Dodge Hellcat is a casualty we’ll see sooner rather than later

Shortly after we turned the calendar to 2021, Dodge CEO, Tim Kuniskus did his best to prepare us for the inevitable death of Dodge’s supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8. The good news from that was that report was that Dodge wouldn’t abandon the muscle car, but now we know – if reports from Motor Authority are accurate – the exact model year that Dodge will kill off Hellcat production. I’ll give you a hint: It’s not far away.

Dodge Viper GTC: Is It Worth The Price?

Dodge Viper GTC: Is It Worth The Price?

Producton of the Dodge Viper ended, but it’s still worth the price. Here’s why

The Dodge Viper is one of the most distinctive sports cars ever made. It started in the 1990s, with the idea of recapturing the spirit of the 1960s Shelby Cobra and Carroll Shelby, himself, was attached to the Viper’s development. Sadly, the last Viper rolled off the production line in August 2017, and it doesn’t look like there’s going to be a new one. And while prices have remained steady, one question remains: is it worth it? YouTube channel Raiti’s Rides gives a good answer.

The Dodge Durango’s Fate Draws Near as Big Changes Linger in the Distance

The Dodge Durango is getting old, and it’s time for something new – what comes next will change everything

The current Dodge Durango has aged well in the last decade that it’s been on the market, mainly due to routine updates every few years, the most recent being in 2021. After recent reports from Automotive News suggested that the Dodge Durango – along with the Chrysler 300 – could be on verge of being discontinued, the internet went a little crazy. As it turns out, there was some truth there – the current Dodge Durango is on the verge of death, but it’s successor, if the latest reports are accurate, will fix just about the only thing that’s wrong with the current model.

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Mike Finnegan from Roadkill has put a 2JZ GTE in a 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s one of the most outrageous builds ever done

We are all familiar with the tuning potential of the 2JZ engine, which makes it one of the more popular engine swaps. That said, there are certain boundaries one should not be crossing. This is exactly what Mike Finnegan, from Finnegan’s Garage YouTube channel, did, as he took the rustiest 1968 Dodge Charger and put a 2JZ GTE engine in it. While it’s up for debate whether that’s worse than putting an LS into it (at least it’s a V-8) some MOPAR fans are sure to blow a fuse or two over Finnegan’s build.

Two high-horsepower Pick-up Trucks go head to head. Can the lighter Ford F150 Roush match the RAM 1500 TRX’s savage Power?

Rare Versions Of American Cars You Probably Didn’t Know About

These are some of the rarest versions of iconic American cars. And each one has a European connection

When you think of iconic, classic American cars, Cadillac Coupe DeVille, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, and Dodge Challenger are, often, some of the first to come to mind. And while each of them has had their fair share of special editions, we can’t help but wonder what classic American cars can be like, with a European twist. Whether it’s their design or an unusual engineering solution, these are the most obscure American classic cars ever to exist.

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.
