the company does business for several years. Since 1993, Dodge has
helped raise over $5 million for schools across the country with
test drive programs like the Dodge Booster Club Fundraiser.

The Dodge brand is tearing into its centennial year with a keen eye
focused on the future and a desire to create vehicles customers
can’t wait to drive and are proud to park in their driveways. With
100 years of history,
Dodge is building on the technological advancements of the ‘30s

and best-in-class power, towing, and driving range, in addition to
