Dodge, now in its second century of competing with Chevrolet and Ford, has historically offered its own take on accessible performance, beginning with the introduction of its Hemi V8 in the Muscle Car era. Long before the Dukes were romping around Hazzard County, Dodge was winning on NASCAR tracks and NHRA drag strips with big displacement installed in lightweight sedans and Chargers. As a division of Chrysler its historically suffered its corporate ups and downs, but now seems firmly established within the product mix of FCA.

Today Dodge offers an affordable mix of 4-door sedans, a retro-inspired Challenger coupe and both the 'mature' Grand Caravan and about-to-be-discontinued hyper Viper. The Dodge Dart is the most affordable offering in today's lineup, but you'll need to hurry as its about to be dropped from that lineup. The Journey crossover continues to sell well, Hellcat variants of the Charger and Challenger are hellishly fun to drive and - with the high performance Viper - also constitute the division's most expensive offerings at $70K...and up.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody First Drive | Same snarl, more bite

The fat cat’s extra width means better performance through grip.

We drove it at the Indy road course.
Dodge Durango SRT vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT | Which should you buy?
