Since splitting the truck division off under the Ram brand, Dodge doesn’t have a lot of nameplates left in production. The Challenger, Charger, and Durango are the sole survivors for the 2023 model year.
Average car insurance cost for the remaining 2023 Dodge models ranges from $1,872 per year for the Dodge Hornet to $2,660 per year for the Dodge Challenger.
The average cost of Dodge insurance is $2,273 per year. Thanks to the more expensive insurance rates for the higher performance Challenger and Charger, and the relatively few models left, this rate gets skewed upwards considerably.

With only about three brands showing more expensive rates than Dodge, it would seem that insuring a Dodge could be pretty expensive.
In fact, Dodge rates do not differ substantially from the other U.S. nameplates from GM and Ford. As we mentioned earlier, the Charger and Challenger models have significant weight in the overall Dodge average. The higher performance of these two models results in more expensive car insurance rates.
So don’t despair if it seems like Dodge insurance is expensive. Just compare rates for the specific model you’re needing coverage for and as long as you have a decent driving record and credit, you’ll be OK.
