As you shop around for a new vehicle from Stokes Chrysler Company, you may find yourself curious about how the brands we sell are related. Is Chrysler, Dodge? Who makes CDJR models? Are they owned and manufactured by the same entity? While all of these brands come together under the FCA umbrella, they are not all the same. Read on below to see what sets them apart!


Who Makes CDJR?

CDJR— Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM— are all made by FCA. FCA is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and that is the holding company under which the aforementioned brands fall. So, is Chrysler Dodge? No. They are both owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, but they are not one in the same. The automaker brands under the FCA umbrella include:

  • Chrysler
  • Jeep
  • Dodge
  • RAM
  • FIAT
  • Alfa Romeo

The Difference Between Chrysler and Dodge

Taking a look at the differences between Chrysler and Dodge will help you decide which brand to shop from for your next Clanton vehicle.

  • The exclusive Chrysler offerings include the legendary and luxurious Chrysler 300 sedan and the popular Chrysler Pacifica minivan you’re likely to see traversing Prattville. The Chrysler line-up more recently includes the Pacifica in a hybrid version and has brought back the Chrysler Voyager.
  • Dodge, on the other hand, is historically regarded for its classic American muscle car spirit and its offerings reflect that heritage. The Dodge Charger and Challenger stay closest to the true muscle car feel, with the Dodge Durango and Journey pulling that essence into its SUV option.

So… Is RAM Dodge?

You may remember the Dodge RAM nomenclature from years past. If Chrysler is not Dodge, is RAM still Dodge? No. In 2009, Dodge completely restructured its brands and RAM trucks became its own entity. Since the 2010 model year, RAM has exclusively been home to the truck line-up including the RAM 1500, RAM 2500, and RAM 3500 models. Now, the RAM ProMaster van series is part of the RAM roster as well.
