The Dodge brand has been around for over a hundred years. The two Dodge brothers distributed auto parts before they got into manufacturing cars with their own name on the vehicle. They even sold parts to henry Ford and then they had a falling out and the Dodges demanded that Henry buy back the Ford stock that they owned. Of course, Mr. Ford didn’t really want to part with the millions and millions of dollars that he would have to pay the brothers but he didn’t want them to own any part of his firm. So, Ford paid them tens of millions and they used that money to start their own very successful car company – Dodge.
Now Dodge is owned by Fiat Chrysler automobiles and they still carry on the same tradition of excellence as the original Dodge brothers. Dodge is known for quality and innovations that make their vehicles better and more user friendly than other brands.
