Dodge Reviews

Founded in 1900 by brothers Horace and John Dodge to supply parts for the growing number of Michigan area car companies, the Dodge brand has deep roots in the American auto industry. Now a subsidiary of the Chrysler Group LLC (which is, in turn, owned by Italian auto giant Fiat), Dodge retains its Detroit address; however, the once-humble parts supplier has grown to become an esteemed automaker with a worldwide presence. Known for its line of full-size trucks, vans and SUVs, Dodge has also made inroads to the small car market in recent years, and now boasts a well-rounded fleet of vehicles that range from rugged 4x4s to hip, city-friendly hatchbacks to the cult classic Viper.

Dodge Charger R/T AWD
With roots dating back to 1964, the Dodge Charger has long been associated with classic American muscle. Over half a century later, the Charger R/T AWD continues to impress with its 370-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and road-hugging all-wheel drive.


DECEMBER 2012

Dodge Dart Rallye
Combining Alfa Romeo DNA with classic Dodge craftsmanship, the Dart is a quick and hip small sedan that lives up to its name. Featuring a gas-sipping turbocharged 4-cylinder, this compact car offers spirited performance while still earning up to 39 mpg on the highway.

Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee
Revived once again for the 2012 model year, the Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee plays on America's collective nostalgia for audacious muscle cars that unabashedly burn fuel in pursuit of that most noble of all goals — more horsepower.


MARCH 2012

Dodge Journey Crew
The Dodge Journey Crew is a serviceable vehicle that works well for active families. Featuring a 3.6-liter V6 engine with VVT, the seven-passenger crossover tops out at 280 horsepower and earns a respectable 25 mpg highway, making road trips a little bit more attractive.

Dodge Avenger SXT Plus
Offering little in the way of innovation, the 2012 Dodge Avenger SXT Plus is more or less the same car in a new skin. However, with its aggressive styling, high-tech interior and affordable price, that's not necessarily a bad thing.


FEBRUARY 2012

Dodge Charger SXT Plus
Channeling the spirit of the original Dodge Charger, which made its debut as a coupe in the mid-1960's, this updated take on the storied muscle car may have four doors; however, it retains its racer's spirit.

A three-quarter front view of a 2010 Dodge Journey

Dodge Journey SE
This simple yet stylish crossover SUV, modeled after the sporty Dodge Avenger sedan, provides all of the comfort and utility of a minivan without the dowdy looks.

JANUARY 2010

Dodge Challenger R/T
Loaded with a roaring 5.7-liter V8 HEMI that cranks out a generous 376 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, this retro racer provides all of the power of the original Challenger, along with a host of high-tech 21st century additions, including a voice-activated navigation system and iPod connectivity.

Dodge Caliber SRT4
While it comes with an assertively styled exterior, cloth bucket seats and a 285-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, this roomy five-passenger hatchback is more of a daily driver, featuring comforts such as Chill Zone cooled beverage storage, a removable LED flashlight/rear cargo lamp and a six-disc CD/DVD/MP3 player.


OCTOBER 2007

Dodge Grand Caravan SXT
This minivan offers a V6 engine, seating for seven and enough multimedia add-ons to keep everyone on board entertained.

Dodge Nitro SLT 4x2

Dodge Nitro SLT 4x2
This sporty, mid-size SUV is just as powerful as it looks, with more cargo space than most would ever need.


JANUARY 2007

Dodge Avenger R/T
Count on a smooth, gentle ride from this economical sedan.



OCTOBER 2006

Dodge Caliber SXT
A daring, economical five-door hatchback from a company that has recently built its reputation with high-horsepower muscle car models. Although not particularly fun to drive, the Caliber is nevertheless versatile and comfortable with lots of character.


MAY 2006

Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe
This snake packs one vicious bite. Now in its second generation, this American performance icon's gargantuan 8.3-liter V10 engine churns out an internal-organ-squashing 510 horsepower.



DECEMBER 2005

Dodge Charger R/T
This is the cure for the common full-size sedan. A 340-horsepower Hemi V8, mean chiseled looks, monster wheels and rear-wheel drive make the Charger the perfect car for a guy whose family just won't fit in a Mustang.


SEPTEMBER 2005

Dodge Magnum RT
The great size requires getting used to; this all-American, beefed-up car is definitely not your mama's station wagon.



JUNE 2005

Dodge Durango 4x4 Adventurer
The bulked up brother of the first generation Durango, the low gas mileage versus the abundant amount of space is something to consider.
