A Brief History of Dodge

Founded in the 1900s by two Dodge brothers, Dodge is an American automaker with headquarters in Michigan. Though the company started as a supplier of chassis components and engine parts for other car manufacturers such as the Ford Motor Company and the Olds Motor Vehicle Company, they are mostly known for their affordable vehicles and high-performance automobiles.

Between 1910 and 1980, the automaker was popularly known as the Dodge Main and was located in Detroit, and later, Hamtramck, Michigan.

In 2000, Dodge introduced the all-wheel-drive R/T model into the auto market.

The company has been through many owners, including Dillion, Reed&Co., and Chrysler and is currently owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) US LLC.

Modern automobiles from Dodge include Sporty, Challenger, Grand Caravan and Charger, Journey, and the Durango. These vehicles offer such cutting-edge features as best-in-class horsepower, class-exclusive technology, and top-notch performance that has earned them a cult-like followership.

The burly, seven-passenger SUV is placed on the same pedestal with Dodge’s top muscle cars: the Charger and the Challenger.

“Dodge likes to think of the Durango as a three-row Charger, and the brand has given the aging SUV a new lease on life in recent years by touting its performance cred alongside the freewheeling cars. Dodge says it began marketing the Durango next to its muscle cars in 2015. In 2015, the 360-hp R/T was the Durango's speediest model, but Dodge has since added more punch with a 475-hp SRT trim.” Vince Bond JR., Automotive News

It’s not surprising, therefore, that Durango sales continue to grow despite the stiff competition from other three-row manufacturers. The ‘muscle-car hybrid’ is currently the third-best seller in the large SUV segment.

Like the Challenger and Charger, the Durango features an RWD layout and V-8 power. It also shares the same engines and eight-speed transmission with the two muscle cars.

From the pricier SRT trim with a supercharged 6.3-liter V-8 Hellcat engine to the lower end Durango SXT and GT models, buyers have the option of various trim levels according to their needs.

Breakdown of the Dodge Durango Generations:

Dodge’s mid-sized sports utility vehicle (SUV), the Durango Dodge, has undergone several changes since its release for public sale in 1998. This replacement for the Dodge Ram Charger has evolved as customers’ needs have also changed.

The Dodge Durango has changed dramatically over three generations--from a rugged mid-size SUV to a sleek and modern full-sized SUV.

{C}·       {C}First Generation: 1998-2003

Produced at Newark Assembly plant in Delaware, these midsized SUVs feature innovative, sturdy components with body-on-frame construction—the same as the Dakota, Dodge’s popular midsized pickup. The engine powered by 5.2-liter Magnum V-8 powerplant. The company also presented a 5.9-liter as an option.  In 1999, Dodge released the upgraded version, the R/T particular version was released, featuring performance modifications, such as 5.0 liter and a V8 engine. The interior was also improved in 2001 to reflect an everyday vehicle with the addition of premium audio systems and dual-zone climate control.

{C}·       {C}Second Generation: 2004-2009

Introduced in 2004, the second generation of the Dodge Durango offered third-row seating and an improved suspension, with rear coil springs to deliver a more comfortable ride. It was also two inches wider, three inches taller and seven inches longer than the first-generation Durango. The new version also featured a larger interior space for additional passenger and cargo room. It was powered by a 210 horsepower, 3.7-literPowertech V-6 engine. The company also improved the convenience features with the addition of satellite radio, U-Connect hands-free communication with Bluetooth, and automatic temperature control air conditioning.

Dodge gave the second-generation Durango an attractive exterior design in 2007, adding a new grille and headlamps—a design similar to that of the Dodge Ram Truck. The automaker introduced a two-mode hybrid version in 2009, using a two-mode transmission.

Third Generation: 2010-Date

Dodge initially announced the discontinuation of the Durango after the 2009 model year. However, in August 2016, a teaser of the third-generation Dodge Durango was released. It went on sale in mid-January 2011. The production was based on an all new computer designed unitized platform.

The third-generation Durango features three seat rows and an option to choose from a pair of world-class engines—the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 360 horsepower.
