I'd say that apart from the Journey, they are all simply horrible. Don't talk about the Ram, pickup trucks don't need the refinement or the quality of another car. In other words: Dodge's specialty!
I rented a Jeep Grand Cherokee with that horrible 3.7L V6 and this is the base engine on most Dodge's.
The Avenger: is pretty much the worst sedan on the market. Why would people buy one over the Mazda 6, VW Jetta, etc.
The Caliber: I'm not exactly sure what it is, but why buy it over a Golf? It's made worse, won't last as long, and has less space in it.
Nitro: What exactly is the point of this car? As if the Liberty wasn't horrible enough, we needed an uglier, less capable version?
Charger: Who wakes up one morning and says, "I want a car with the worst suspension system this side of a Mustang! And, put up to 425 bhp in this unstable car while you are at it!" I know it was based on an old Merc, but you would never know by driving it...
Challenger: I understand why you would buy this one... for now. The only other choice is the Mustang, and that (although it looks good) is a horrible car. The Challenger is a small step above it. But you people realize the Camaro is coming out soon right? Unlike the Challenger and the Mustang, it looks like a muscle car, but has none of the drawbacks. It has a suspension system similar to that of Ferrari's and Lotus's. Double-Wishbone's on every wheel, and it was tuned on the Nurburgring. On top of that, it gets over 300 bhp from its base V6 while the Challenger gets just a small amount more from its middle V8! Why not wait for the Camaro?
Durango: Right now, the Nissan Armada and the Toyota Sequoia are light years ahead. I know they are slightly more expensive, but they are worth the extra money. My friend's family had a Durango and it only lasted them 6 years before the engine went! 6 YEARS!!!!! And then, like the idiots they were, they bought another one?
Grand Caravan: Probably the only other sensible Dodge, although what's the point of having it as an exact twin to the Town and Country? There are no differences!
OK, thanks, please answer!
Sorry if I was ranting, but this question has been on my mind for a while now as I see a lot of them here in New Jersey/New York, and I have test driven them, and look at them every year at the New York
International Auto Show, and it perplexes me every time, so don't think I'm not speaking from experience!
