The Dodge M80 was a concept car created by Dodge. The M80 was first introduced at the 2002 North American International Auto Show. The M80 was designed as a modern interpretation of the old Dodge trucks of the 1930s and 1940s.

Engine and Performance[edit]

The Dodge M80 has a V6 engine that has regular aspiration and induction. The engine gives out about 210 horsepower (160 kW) and 235 pound force-feet (319 N·m) of torque. The M80 can go from 0-60 mph in eight seconds flat. The M80 uses a five-gear manual transmission.

Design[edit]

The M80's design is loosely based on the old pickup trucks of the 1930s and 1940s. The M80's tires are up 20 inches (510 mm). It features racks that can hold objects as big as an all-terrain vehicle. The interior is very modern, but does give it a classical feeling with the fact that it is rugged and durable.
