The Dodge 2500-3500 series has been an iconic vehicle since its inception in 1972. This large and powerful series of medium-duty trucks has been loved by not only those who use them for hauling and towing, but also those who appreciate their stylish good looks and performance.
The original “D” series of Dodge pickups was the first to feature a V8 engine and the second to offer four-wheel drive. The Cummins Turbo Diesel engines were first offered in the D series beginning in 1989. But, before then, these vehicles were powered by Chrysler's formidable 318 cubic inch V8 engine. These early models also featured chrome bumpers and featured the classic “slant nose” grille.
The interior was roomy and comfortable, but with all that power under the hood it was sure to get hot. To address this, Dodge began offering air conditioning in the 1978 model year to help keep cab occupants cool. The exterior styling was an evolution of the full-size Dodge trucks from the 1950s, featuring flat panels and lots of chrome trim, including the chrome grille.
The original 1972-1980 D series included the D100, D200, D300, and D400. The D100 was the smallest at just over 1,000 lbs. and the D400 was the largest at over 4,000 lbs. In 1976, Dodge introduced the new W100, W200, and W300 pickups. These half-ton through three-quarter-ton models had a longer wheelbase than the earlier pickups but still maintained the awesome power of the V8 engine.
The 1980 model year saw the introduction of several updates to the Dodge lineup, including a revised grille, new side-view mirror design, and a redesigned interior. The biggest update was the introduction of the 5.9-liter V8 engine, which replaced the previous 4.6-liter engine. This new engine was more powerful and fuel efficient and helped propel the D series into the modern age.
The D series combination of power, style and value made it a hit with consumers and professional truckers alike. Many of the Dodge trucks from this era can still be found on the roads today, carrying people and things around with ease. They are also still popular with car collectors and restorers, who find them both reliable and beautiful.
The Dodge 2500-3500 series has been a mainstay of medium-duty pickup trucks over the past forty years. Whether you’re looking for a reliable workhorse or a classic truck to restore, the Dodge 2500-3500 series is sure to have something that meets your needs.
