Dodge was founded by the Dodge brothers in 1900 as a supplier of parts for Detroit-based automobile manufacturers.
The Dodge brothers died suddenly in 1920, and in 1925 the company was sold to Dillon, Read, and Company. It was sold again to Chrysler in 1928.
During the oil crisis of 1973, the Dodge line came to be seen as inefficient and had to be downsized along with other Chrysler brands.
Over the past decades, Dodge has become well known for their trucks, including the popular Dodge Ram.
The new Dodge Challenger Hellcat, capable of speeds in the 200 MPH range, is causing some people to question if these cars should be banned.
Today Dodge vehicles are available all over the world, with big markets in Argentina, Asia, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and Europe.
