Dodge’s Evolution: From the Neon to the Most Powerful Car on the Road

Dodge has proven itself time and again to be an automotive manufacturer that is concerned more about the future, and a whole lot less about the past. The company was founded back in 1900, and over the past 116 odd years, Dodge has evolved, transformed, and adapted to the changing climate of the automotive industry. Fast forward to 2016, and walking into the Dodge dealer in Miami is far from what you would have expected in 2006, let alone 1900.

What is it exactly about Dodge that has made the brand not only survive, but thrive during all of these changes? For starters, Dodge is not content to stay stuck in the past. When a model in their lineup falls flat, the automotive giant accepts it, and moves forward. Dodge has survived far worse than their less than popular Neon car fizzling out of production. From financial and oil crises, to multiple changes in ownership, Dodge has come out on top every single time – and some would say that they are all the better for it.

Leaving the Past and Looking Towards the Future

With over a century under its belt as an automotive manufacturer, Dodge has taken a sort of silent vow to learn from past mistakes, without ever repeating them in the future. Dodge has learned over the years that they do two types of vehicles very, very well. That’s right – muscle cars, and pickup trucks. Dodge was so successful at creating exceptional pickup trucks, that they made the decision to create their own spin-off ‘Ram Trucks’ brand in 2009. With the sole purpose focused on the pickup truck segment, Dodge was left to channel all of their creative ambitions into other successful vehicles in their lineup.

With the pickup trucks left to the Ram Trucks brand, Dodge has been able to create a highly successful lineup of mostly cars. While the Journey crossover SUV and the Dodge Caravan have remained a continued success for the brand, the major accolades have come in the form of cars. Dodge offers cars in all shapes, sizes, and power abilities. From the small Dart, to the sporty and performance-driven Charger, Dodge has found its niche, and it’s a very good niche indeed.

The Dodge Car Lineup: Small, Large, and Everything Inbetween

When it comes to the 2016 Dodge lineup, the brand has a few very lucrative nameplates under its belt. The Challenger, Charger, Dart, and Viper are all offered for the 2016 model year, and represent a very real threat to other automotive manufacturers.

Dodge also offers one of the most unique crossovers on the road, the Dodge Durango. A true one of a kind rendition in the crowded segment, the Durango stands out amongst all of the other nameplates in its class. The Durango is just another example of how Dodge aims to give drivers a truly unique experience, even if it means standing out from the rest of the crowd.

The 2016 Dart is the perfect compact car for the busy commuter on the go, while the Charger, Challenger, and Viper, all offer something with a very specific purpose – power. While most major automotive brands are content with one muscle car in their lineup, Dodge is simply not one of them. The brand has been busy creating three incredibly powerful and responsive sports cars that are highly regarded by automotive enthusiasts across the world.

What is it that Dodge puts into their sports cars that other brands are missing? The answer to that question is both simple and complex, and is certainly a topic worth exploring.

What Makes Dodge Muscle Cars Supreme

One of the most unique aspects of Dodge muscle cars, is that they are made available in a wide array of power and performance specifications. For drivers who appreciate the aesthetic appeal of a muscle car without all of the power that it brings, can opt for a version of the Challenger or Charger that is better equipped for everyday driving. For those individuals who crave the open track feel, the SRT Hellcat Challenger or Charger make the perfect getaway vehicles.

At the beginning of 2016, Dodge announced that the 2016 Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat models are even better equipped for power, attitude, and bragging rights.
