Dodge has been making vehicles since the beginning of the 20th century, and the brand still holds strong and popular to this day. As of June 2015, below are six of the most popular of Dodge’s current models based on sales, and what the experts say are their best features.
While the Durango clocks in at number 6 in popularity, with around 31,000 sales this year, it is one of Dodge’s most reliable vehicle models according to JD Power. This model was ranked above average in performance and design as well as customer satisfaction, receiving a recommendation award and the highest road test score for a large SUV from Consumer Reports.
5. Grand Caravan
Although the Grand Caravan has experienced a sharp decline in sales compared to 2014, it still remains one of Dodge’s most popular models. The Grand Caravan ranks above average in Overall Quality with JD Power and has comparable customer satisfaction ratings with similar mini-vans.
The Challenger has seen a dramatic increase in popularity from 2014 (+40.8%), and received the highest customer satisfaction rating of any Dodge model from Consumer Reports. This vehicle’s performance, design, and quality are also top of the line, with its new 2015 body design and the option of a V8 engine. The Challenger’s reliability is also comparable to other luxury sports cars.
The Dart, like the Challenger, has also seen a jump in sales this year (+29.2%). It has better gas mileage than other Dodge models, and also ranks respectably in performance. The Dart’s small body design makes for great handling and still offers ample room for passengers.
The Dodge Charger has remained steady in its sales over the past couple of years and still manages to make the number 2 spot in popularity. This model scores very high with JD Power for its performance, having the highest horsepower when compared to other sedans. With its high customer satisfaction rate, the Charger has earned a top spot in popularity and is second only to the Dodge…
The Journey finds itself in the number 1 spot with a small increase in sales from last year. It features an optional third row seat which is a great feature for a mid-sized SUV. This model’s price is also right, costing less than other mid-size SUVs on the market. With respectable performance and design and comparable horsepower, the Journey has proved worthy of those desiring more seats and a bargain price, making it the most popular Dodge model on the market.
