One of the US companies with great projection in Europe is Dodge, thanks to its interesting compact vehicles and the so-called 'muscles'. Dodge (like the companies that we have reviewed) has an excellent history behind the engines and the excellent vehicles. Here some curiosities.
Dodge and growth. John Francis Dodge and Horace Elgin Dodge had a small company called Brothers Bicycle Machine Factory, which was in Ontario, Canada. In 1901, the small company moved to Detroit, Michigan by increasing their sales through their parts they had, that were excellent for the first car Oldsmobile.
A year later, the brothers joined Dodge parts and engineering with Henry Ford, and helped to create Ford MotorCompany (During 1913, the vast majority of the parts of the Ford were created by Dodge). After a year of growth, in 1914, the brothers decided to establish his own company, called 'Dodge Brothers Motor Vehicle Company'.
After being one of the few companies to succeed in the First World War (were the builders of the army trucks in the United States), Dodge was sold to the Chrysler Corporation in 1928.
Between the flagships vehicles, are: Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, Dodge Dakota Dodge Dart, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Magnum, among others.
