Dodge Small Cars

America is all about going big, especially when it comes to vehicles with most Americans cruising the streets in large types of pickup trucks and crossover SUVs. Because of this, many automakers have discontinued the production of their compact cars including every division under the FCA banner. That doesn’t mean you can’t get behind the wheel of a small car from Dodge, however, as used Dodge cars are a popular choice in the USA, and the second hand vehicle market is booming.

Dodge Small Car Range

Currently, Dodge doesn’t produce small cars in the US but you may be able to find some of the discontinued models on the second-hand market:

  • Dart - The Dart is a compact sedan that offers balanced performance and a pleasant ride quality. It was offered with the choice of three different engines, two transmissions, and five trims. Though none are particularly competitive performance-wise, the Dart is respected for its frugality, passenger comfort, and practicality.
  • Nitro - With a potent V6 unit under the hood with up to 260 horsepower and a sport-tuned suspension buttressing the chassis, the Nitro compact SUV feels right at home on the city streets. Its best qualities are its enthusiastic acceleration responses, poised handling, and plush ride quality on the road.
  • Caliber - The Dodge Caliber offers little more than a subjectively cool and unique design, oodles of passenger room, and plenty of cargo space in the trunk. It’s otherwise very lackluster, heavy on fuel, and short on good features. It also has some weak safety ratings.
