Dodge 3D models represent a brand of cars produced by the American company Chrysler. The Dodge brand produce cars, pickups, SUVs and commercial vehicles. The company was founded in 1900 by the Dodge brothers. In 1914 they began the production of their own cars. The Dodgecompany was sold in 1928 to Chrysler Corporation, from 1997 to 2008 it was part of the DaimlerChrysler alliance and is now a part of the company Fiat-Chrysler LLC. The new Dodge logo features the inscription “Dodge” with two red stripes; the old logo (head of a bog) is now used on cars of the brand Ram.
The first Dodge Brothers car, which was later jokingly nicknamed Old Woman Betsy, left the factory on November 14, 1914 – and after that, until the end of the year, 249 more of the same cars were produced, some 3D artists have 3D models of Old Betsy. By 1920, the company took second place in the car production rankings, just after the Ford company. But in the same 1920 both brothers died, and Fred J. Haynes became the new head of the company. The capital of the Dodge brothers was solid – more than 20 million dollars each. In addition, the heirs of the brothers (and apart from the widows they have no one left) received 50% of the share capital. But both widows were lack of entrepreneurial talents, and the company’s business began to decline. The company’s owners were their widows, who in 1925 sold it to the investment group Dillon, Read & Co for $ 146 million. Despite the efforts of the new owners, Dodge was losing ground in the market, and investors began searching for a buyer for the company. This man was Walter Chrysler, and in 1928 the company became part of the Chrysler Corporation.
During the Second World War, the company Dodge mainly engaged in the production of heavy jeeps (WC and WF series), as well as the production of aircraft engines. Dodge WC was supplied to the USSR under the Lend-Lease.
The financial crisis of the late 2000s affected Chrysler most of all. By early 2009, the company was on the verge of bankruptcy and was going to close all of its production and trading facilities. However, soon there was a buyer in the person of the Italian company FIAT, and since 2010, the activity resumed under a new patronage. At the same time, FIAT began to introduce cars of its own brand to the North American market, and to the European market, Dodge and Jeep in a different rebranding. In the mid-2010s there were cuts in many models, most of all they touched on Dodge and Chrysler. Jeep, Ram and Fiat, by contrast, continued to be competitive in the company’s home market.
