Founded as the Dodge Brothers Company in 1900, Dodge is an American brand of automobiles, sport utility vehicles, and trucks and Dodge parts manufactured and marketed by Chrysler LLC in over 60 different countries and territories worldwide. Its purpose was to supply Dodge parts and assemblies for the newly emerging auto industry. Dodge began making its own complete vehicles in 1914. The brand was later sold in 1928, survived the short-lived DaimlerChrysler merger of 1998–2007, and is now a cornerstone of the new Chrysler LLC.
After the DaimlerChrysler merge, most models, including the Intrepid, Stratus, Neon and Dodge parts, were redesigned in a careful evolutionary way during the early 2000s as the company felt things out. Dodge's first experience of any synergies with the German side of the company came in the form of the new Magnum sports wagon, introduced for 2005 as a replacement for the Intrepid. Featuring Dodge’s first mainstream rear-wheel drive Dodge auto part since the 1980s and a revival of the Hemi V8 engine, it was a modest success. But it was the rebirth of the Charger in 2006 on the same platform that was the real winner. Offered in a variety of models ranging from very mild to very wild, it quickly became a top contender in the mid-size and Dodge parts market.
Dodge introduced its current Ram's-head logo in 1993; it standardized on that logo in 1996 for all vehicles and Dodge parts except the Viper. Trucks had carried a ram hood ornament Dodge part as early as the 1930s, but its use was sporadic after that until the 1980s. After 1981, when most of the truck lines took on some sort of a "Ram" name, the ram's-head ornament could be fitted as part of various option packages and was also stamped on Dodge parts.
Dodge’s first experiments with anything like a sport utility vehicle and SUV Dodge parts were seen in the late 1950s with a windowed version of their standard panel truck known as the Town Wagon. The division didn’t enter the SUV arena in earnest until 1974, with the purpose-built Ram Charger and Dodge parts. Offering the then-popular open body style and Dodge’s powerful V8 engines, the Ram Charger and other Dodge parts was a strong competitor for other trucks on the market. The Ram Charger hung on through 1993 with only minor updates, but was not replaced along with the rest of the truck line for 1994.
Vehicles currently in the Dodge line up include the following Dodge parts and vehicles; Avenger, Caliber, Charger, Dakota , Durango, Grand Caravan, Magnum, Nitro, Ram 1500, Ram 2500, Ram 3500, Viper as well as after-market Dodge auto parts and accessories.
