History of Dodge

The Dodge company was founded by two brothers, John Francis Dodge and Horace Elgin Dodge, who moved to Detroit in 1902 to open a machine shop. Their skill and expertise in their field attracted the attention of an entrepreneur by the name of Ransom Eli Olds, the creator of the Oldsmobile and the first automobile manufacturer to use assembly lines.



Olds asked the Dodge brothers to assist him in creating the first-ever gasoline-powered engine, following the rise of gasoline as a power source after the era of steam-powered technology. Following their innovation, the Dodge brothers would go on to make thousands of engines and transmissions for the Oldsmobile. During this time, the brothers also sold auto parts to other manufacturers, gaining them solid footing in the automotive industry.

 

Following their success, the Dodge brothers were approached by the twice-bankrupt Henry Ford, who asked for their help. They completely redesigned Ford Motor Company from the ground up, gaining a 10% stake in the company's assets. The brothers stayed with Ford until 1914, when they produced their first car under the Dodge name.

 

However, after five years of company growth and success, the Dodge brothers were both stricken by illness and died within the same year, in 1920. Despite passing from new owner to new owner, the company struggled to maintain its ranking within the industry, until it was acquired by the Chrysler Corporation in 1928 for $170 million. Since then, Dodge has risen from the ashes, becoming one of the most successful and well-known brands in the automotive industry and a center for innovation, power, performance, and luxury.
