Dodge offers an exciting lineup of passenger cars and SUVs for 2013 introducing a brand new compact car, the Dart. Note that their line of pickup trucks has been branched off into their own brand, named RAM.
(The Caliber has been discontinued for 2013.)
The Dart becomes the smallest car in Dodge's lineup, and the compact sedan is also one of the most flexible with three different engines and numerous trim configurations. Leading the pack is the 160-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder which returns fuel economy of 27/39 mpg city/highway.
Dodge also makes a midsize sedan, called the Avenger, which was overhauled two years ago and added a performance-oriented R/T trim last year, which was equipped with a 283-hp V-6.
One of the most exciting cars Dodge makes is the Charger, which combines the practicality of a full-size family sedan with the fun of a muscle car. This full-size sedan has space for your kids but also features rear-wheel drive and a pair of large engines, the biggest being the 470-hp V-8 of fury found in the SRT8 trim.
An ode to the past, Dodge’s muscle car, the Challenger, features retro styling that makes it look similar to the old model from the 70’s. The coupe seats up to five-passengers and even though it has an old-school look features plenty of new-school technology including a stereo with a 30 gb hard drive to store your music.
A pair of crossovers also populates Dodge’s offerings. First up is the midsize Journey, which offers five- or seven-seats depending on whether or not you opt for a third-row. Last year, the base price dropped over $3,000 and has remained there, making the Journey one of the most affordable midsize crossovers on the road.
The Durango returns for 2012 after a major overhaul last year with seating for up to seven passengers. It shares a platform with the Grand Cherokee and offers well-outfitted interior that comes with standard features like tri-zone automatic climate control.
Wrapping things up is the Grand Caravan minivan which also gets a lowered price for 2012. The second- and third-rows of the Grand Caravan both fold flat into the floor when you need more cargo space and the seven-seat people mover still features the powerful Pentastar V-6 under the hood.
