One important aspect of overall affordability doesn’t have to do with how much your car costs. It has to do with how much you can sell it for later. Last year Kelly Blue Book released the 2014 Best Resale Value Awards Top 10 and the Dodge Challenger resale value came in at number 10. There is one dealership that couldn’t agree more with this decision, and that is Corwin Dodge in Springfield, MO.

Each year KBB gives us the best resale value vehicles in each segment, but then they get even better with the best overall, limiting the winners down to 10, instead of more than 20. Not only do the top 10 beat out the other winners, but they beat out hundreds of other models competing for this award.

The Dodge Challenger resale value is predicted to be high for multiple reasons, but a main one is appeal. It takes the old muscle car look that we saw in the ‘60s and ‘70s and combines it with new-age features and safety. Along with the beautiful look drivers and passengers can find a comfortable interior with tech-savvy parts and features.

While right now we are looking the Dodge Challenger resale value, taking the 2014 Dodge Challenger for a spin will also help you to make your decision. With its performance and smooth handling, there won’t be any looking back except to see the cars you are passing.

Dodge Joined the Most Innovative Companies List

Dodge Joined the Most Innovative Companies ListRecently Fast Company announced that Dodge joined the most innovative companies list accompanied by such brand monsters like Google and Amazon.

Fast Company’s 2014 ‘World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies’ list acknowledges those who brilliantly advertise and market for their company. It also names these companies for their sales increases throughout the year because of these innovations.

“Dodge’s late-2013 spokesman was all bluster: It was Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell’s prancing idiot from Anchorman 2, whose TV ads lifted Durango sales 59% last October.” (Fast Company’s 50 List)

One part that really stood out to Fast Company was that on Conan one night, Ron Burgundy appeared and as a joke said that he didn’t know what the big deal was and that the Dodge Durango wasn’t all that great. So, what did Dodge do? They thought it was hilarious and stuck by it! It was well-played and innovatively successful.

During 2013 Dodge also hopped on the Fast & Furious vibe with their newest movie as well Defiance on the SyFy channel. With all their innovative ideas, it is easy to see what got them to the number 11 spot on the list.
