Dodge: Brand Value and Models That Move

The story of Dodge begins with two brothers. With a quickly expanding American auto industry, the Dodge brothers created a machine shop to provide components for various new brands. With over a decade of industry experience, the brothers took the next step and produced their own model in 1914 under the Dodge brand.

About Dodge

From passenger sedans to rugged pickup trucks and high-performance muscle cars.

A direct competitor to the dominant Ford Model T, Dodge’s Model 30-35 had a collection of improvements drawing customers to its doors. The brand quickly earned a stellar reputation and was among the top US automakers by 1916. During this time, the company also provided vehicles for the US Military, displaying its ability to create reliable and rugged vehicles. 

Unfortunately, the untimely passing of both brothers in 1920 left a hole in leadership, halting Dodge’s rise and initiating its downfall in popularity. Ultimately, the brand was sold to an investment bank in 1925 before being sold to another up-and-coming automaker in 1928, Chrysler. 

Under Chrysler, Dodge would again rise to the ranks of one of the most dependable and high-quality automobiles. As the decades passed, Dodge shifted its priority from passenger sedans to rugged pickup trucks and high-performance muscle cars.

Today, Dodge enjoys great success with its RAM trucks, and Challenger and Charger performance vehicles. One can be sure to find plenty of examples at Dodge auctions.

Dodge Charger

Dodge Charger

Introduced in 1966, the Charger was an alternative to Ford’s and Chevrolet’s pony cars. Its second generation was a stellar example of what a vintage muscle car should be. However, the third and fourth generation was built with different priorities, and Dodge would put the Charger's name on hiatus. Reborn as a four-door sedan in 2006, the modern Charger has lived up to the muscle car DNA of its earlier generations. The Charger brought with it raw power coupled with bold styling.
