Dodge 2017 Model Overview

Dodge, Fiat Chrysler’s performance-oriented car brand, is trimming its lineup for 2017. The slow-selling Dart compact sedan is cancelled, and Dodge has announced that this will be the final year of the Viper sports car. The aged Grand Caravan continues without the redesign bestowed upon the Chrysler Pacifica, and the Journey crossover SUV soldiers forth. Challenger, Charger, and Durango models benefit from a slew of cosmetic improvements.

Detailed changes for each 2017 Dodge car, SUV, and minivan model are shown on the pages that follow.
