Dodge is a well-known American brand of cars, sport utility vehicles and people carriers. The company was founded in 1900, but didn’t begin producing cars until 1914. Up until then, they were a parts supplier to Detroit-based car makers. They have an extensive range of performance vehicles, as well as lower-priced variants of Chrysler-badged models. Dodge is also a popular brand when it comes to pickup trucks. They are manufactured under the Ram brand, which is well-known for models like the 2500, the 3500 and the 5500. Dodge introduced a line called “Adult Toys” in the 1970s to help boost their truck sales, which included various customized versions of popular models. The purpose-built Ramcharger was manufactured in 1974 and features a powerful V8 engine. This model was redesigned in 1994 and followed this up with the Durango model in 1997. Dodge vehicles are sold throughout the world, including Europe, Canada and Brazil. At Haynes we have an extensive selection of Dodge repair manuals for various models.
