When the Dodge Coronet first hit the market in 1949, it was the top trim line from Dodge. In 1953, the Coronet had its first major update with an optional Red Ham Hemi engine for extra speed capacity. By the mid-50s, Dodge downgraded the Coronet to one of its lower trim lines and greatly diversified the options with the Coronet, including a coupe, sedan, and station wagon, and the option of V6 or V8 engines. In the 1960s, the Coronet once again became a mid-sized option from Dodge, and it received fewer major changes throughout the rest of its run until it was discontinued in 1976.
The Dodge Coronet is available in a number of trim lines, most commonly a two-door coupe and a four-door sedan. The early versions were focused on luxury, with stylish exterior appearances and unique engine perks. However, when the Coronet dropped to the lower end of Dodge's production, it became available in more trim lines, including a family-friendly station wagon and the racing style D-500, which was the fastest car released by Dodge in 1956.
In the 1960s, the Coronet received a major makeover when Dodge revamped it as part of its mid-line production. With this shift, Dodge offered Deluxe versions of the Coronet, including some with specialized wheel wells that made it a prime car for racing. In this period, the Coronet was one of the few cars from Dodge to use a Hemi engine, which was specifically designed for top-end muscle cars. In 1968, the Coronet Super Bee trim line was available, which continues to be popular with muscle car enthusiasts View less
