Dodge Concept Cars

The 2003 Dodge Magnum Concept led to a production version of the wagon from 2004-2008, including a police version starting in 2006. It would be the last mid-size wagon sold by an American automaker.

At its centennial event, Dodge showed off some of the concept vehicles developed since the late 1980s, including a Charger with a CNG-powered supercharged V-8, the re-born 2003 Magnum that later found its way into some law enforcement fleets, and the 2006 Hornet Concept that was envisioned as a European subcompact vehicle.

Dodge's First Commercial Vehicle

The 1920 Screenside had the same wheelbase as the passenger car, but the chassis was longer, heavier, and sturdier.

Horace and John Dodge reluctantly agreed to develop a commercial vehicle in 1917 after their sales associates lobbied for a work truck that could be sold to small businesses that made deliveries of fruit, beer, and other goods. The result was a vehicle based on the first Dodge passenger car. The vehicle eventually became the 1920 Screenside half-ton vehicle that is considered the predecessor of Dodge's light-duty pickup trucks. Photos by Paul Clinton.

100 Years of Dodge

The 1993 Dodge Intrepid was a steady fleet vehicle at the time. Fleets added 9,522, which was 14 percent of Intrepid sales for the 1993-MY.

Chrysler's Dodge brand hosted a ride-and-drive event in late June to showcase 100 years of Dodge vehicles as the brand celebrates its centennial. John and Horace Dodge formed Dodge in 1914 and produced their first car, a four-door sedan advertized as an affordable "business car" that sold for $785 versus $490 for the Model T.

Are You a ‘Fireman’ or a Manager? Hint: One is a Dead-End Job

By Mike Antich
How would you characterize your job? Are you more of a “fireman,” spending your days putting out one fire after another? Or, do you devote the time to truly manage your fleet? Most of us will say we do both, but putting out fires consumes a tremendous amount of time and decreases the time invested in managing the fleet from a strategic level. At the most fundamental level, we have to ask ourselves: Are we tactical or strategic managers?
