Is Chrysler Dodge?

Chrysler and Dodge are both brands that fall under the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) umbrella. And while Dodge and RAM were essentially one and the same in the past, the Chrysler model lineup has focused chiefly on family-style vehicles, like the Pacifica, while Dodge offers SUVs and performance automobiles. Here, Olathe Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram covers the distinction between the Chrysler brand and the Dodge brand to aid Olathe vehicle shoppers.

What is FCA?

FCA, or Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, is the parent company that oversees the full Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM, FIAT, and Alfa Romeo brand. FIAT and Alfa Romeo are fairly recent acquirements by the company, and the full FCA lineup often has similar features and proprietary technologies, including the Uconnect® suite. Each brand, though overseen by the same company, is its own distinct entity, offering unique vehicles within their respective lineups.

The Chrysler Brand

What is the Chrysler brand known for? Primarily, Chrysler is known for its focused lineup of spacious, family-oriented vehicles, which differs sharply from Dodge. Chrysler models include:

  • Chrysler Pacifica: A critically-acclaimed minivan, the Pacifica boasts high-tech safety and entertainment features for Overland Park families.
  • Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: Pacifica’s eco-friendly sibling, the Pacifica Hybrid features an electric and gas engine system, which delivers a 32-mile all-electric driving range on a single charge.
  • Chrysler 300: A sturdy, classy, yet powerful luxury sedan, the Chrysler 300 produces best-in-class horsepower and torque.

The Dodge Brand

Dodge has a legacy as an American muscle car brand, and that tradition carries on today. A full range of performance-focused vehicles shines through from the Dodge brand, giving every gearhead around Gardner something to enjoy:

  • Dodge Charger: The Charger is a souped-up performance sedan with impressive power, thanks to its standard 3.6L engine or available HEMI® engine options. Check out what’s in store across the Dodge Charger lineup.
  • Dodge Challenger: An icon of rip-roaring performance specs at an affordable price, the Challenger has remained a sports car of choice for years.
  • Dodge Journey: This family-friendly SUV comes loaded with comfortable interior features, roomy cargo space, and impressive tech.
  • Dodge Durango: With the utility of an SUV and the performance specs present in many of the speedier Dodge models, super-charged engine options and a plush interior in the Durango deliver the best of both worlds to SUV shoppers.
  • Dodge Grand Caravan: The Dodge brand’s minivan option features seating for seven and the latest in modern safety and entertainment technology.
