The lean mean, hard working, power yet elegant machine, that's the Dodge 1500. If you are getting your first truck or upgrading the Dodge 1500 4x4 truck can serve your needs both off road and on the road. Here are a few things to reckon before you call car agent.
The Dodge 1500 may not be as big and as muscled as other 4x4 trucks but do not under estimate this gentle, baby giant. Though it was also built for women drivers. But behind the wheel you feel its V8 engine and it has a range of models beginning at 210-hp with 3.7L V6 machine for the tough cookies to a gargantuan 390-hp 5.7 L V8 machine for the real angry, macho man in you. And its body design cannot be ignored as well as it can also be huge in the enormous category. Yet, it is known that Dodge back in 2002 has made a major redesign on their pick-up trucks. Gone are the exaggerating over bulging tail lights, bumpers etc. Auto critiques have called it the "slimmer and sexier Dodge truck".
It begins with a base range from 3.7 L up to a 5.7 L V8 engine, power of 390 at 5,600 RPM. Transmission and drive terrain is 5 speed and 4-wheel drive with seating capacity of 6 people. MPG (Miles per Gallon) is 13 city and 18 highway. In spite of the "new" and "sexy" look it is still pure muscle underneath the hood. It's still the same old Papa Dodge your Granddad and your Dad drove except now the wife can now use it to bring the children to school.
It was built by two very closely-knit all-American brothers, Horace and John in 1900. They used to supply auto parts for the Ford Motor Company. Until one day the dream was not just a dream and the brothers started to manufacture their own automobiles. Their very first model was the Dodge Model 30 a four-cylinder, touring car built to market against Ford's giant and upscale Ford Model T. These brave brothers came a long way after that and made "Dodge" an American household name in the light truck category and eventually worldwide.
The average American guy would use this for the farm. Load it with the family's terrier with all the haystack or farm produce to sell in the city. In the more modern era, it brings Dad, Mom to work and many more in the urban setting. Because it has emerged for the aforementioned exaggerating huge and bulging design not built in the freeway as it has a flashing sign of "make way, I am passing by!". It is now packed both as cargo and leisure vehicle and can now serve both needs not only for rocky and mountainous off-road. It has gone a long way when Junior would be embarrassed to bring it to the prom night or any movie date night.
Begin with the price, it is a bid pricey beginning at around $28 grand to $60 grand but the good news is compared to other 4x4 trucks in its class it is a lot less. The bad news is that with all its power it needs an experienced driver as the traction is difficult to control on the trail, the good news is you have the option not to let Junior or the wife drive when going on your backpacking vacation. The good news and more good news, is that if you are the kind of man who wants power and torque yet does not make you sweat on steering and best of all a unique and powerful coil rear suspension grip off road, then you have found your best bud in the Dodge 1500 4x4 truck.
