The Dodge 150 was a full-size pickup truck manufactured by Chrysler's Dodge division from 1972 to 1980. It was the first generation of what would eventually become the most successful and iconic pickup truck in North America, the Dodge Ram. The Dodge 150 was a popular choice among truck buyers, offering a strong V8 engine, dependable performance, and a wide variety of customization options.
The Dodge 150 was introduced in 1972 as a replacement for the D Series pickups which had been in production since 1961. It featured an all-new body style, a new frame, and a powerful V8 engine. The standard engine was a 5.2-liter V8 producing 175 horsepower and 212 lb-ft of torque, with optional upgrades available up to 210 horsepower. The engine was mated to a three-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic depending on the buyer's preference.
The Dodge 150 offered a wide array of features and options, allowing buyers to customize their trucks to fit their needs and preferences. Standard features included power brakes, power steering, air conditioning, and a deluxe interior. Available options included side mirrors, power windows, a sliding rear window, and a cowl induction hood. Buyers also had their choice of a two-door regular cab, a four-door "Club Cab" extended cab, and a four-door "Crew Cab" with a longer wheelbase.
The Dodge 150 had an exceptionally capable suspension system that allowed for good handling on- and off-road. The trucks came with either a four-wheel-drive system or a two-wheel-drive setup with an optional locking differential. Additionally, there were a variety of different bed lengths available, ranging from the short bed (6.5 feet) to the long bed (9 feet). This gave buyers the ability to choose the perfect cargo capacity for their needs.
The Dodge 150 was an incredibly popular model throughout its production run, and its success can largely be attributed to its powerful engine and its wide array of features and options. It was reliable, dependable, and relatively affordable, making it a great choice for those looking for a full-size pickup truck that could do it all.
The Dodge 150 was discontinued in 1980, replaced by the next generation of Dodge pickup trucks, the Dodge Ram. While the Ram was a massive improvement over the 150 in terms of power and capability, the 150 is still fondly remembered by many as the classic full-size pickup. It has become an iconic piece of automotive history and a favorite among classic truck enthusiasts.
