The era that the Dodge D200 entered the market was a time when pickup trucks were a big thing in Americawell, actually trucks were the big thing. There was something so manly and dependable about a good truck. The only problem was that they were too big for the common American driver to own and drive around in. Cars were ok, but there was something that seemed to be lacking. Enter the pickup truck: compact enough to park in the garage but with enough storage space for tools, fishing & hunting gear, and anything else that needed to be transported and transported fast.
That's why company after company started coming out with pickup trucks of all shapes and sizes. With the Dodge D200, Chrysler managed to do one better over the competition. It looked tough, it was tough, and it did the joba true man's ride. The 200 series was so popular that, short of an extreme overhaul in design in 1994, it remained as it was for 10 years. A full two decades since a new Dodge D200 rolled off the assembly line, and these pickup trucks can still be spotted in significant numbers across all of America's roadways.
You're still likely to find a 200 wherever something needs to be moved, wherever there is someone looking for an affordable and reliable truck. Consistent with its popularity is the amazing fact that you can still find a whole lot of parts and accessories to, not only bring new life into the aging systems of this classic, but also upgrade it that it can take on many more challenges in the years to come. It will be a long time before the Dodge D200 is consigned to the scrap heaps and pages of history because you can't kill off a good thing, as they say.
