Dodge Fires Up the Power Brokers for High Performance Challengers and Chargers
Dodge is opening the first wave of its new Power Brokers dealerships. At least 100 dealers, in 34 states nationwide, will specialize in selling the high-performance vehicles like the 2022 Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT models. The dealers will have specially trained staff and service technicians to also sell and install Direct Connection Performance Parts to make Dodge vehicles even more powerful and faster. Dodge intends to grow the network of Certified Power Broker Dealers in the near future.
Certified Dodge Power Brokers Dealerships
Dodge has created these dealerships to provide concierge-level service to performance fans. To be certified as a Power Broker Dealer, the dealership has to meet special Dodge standards and agree to train the staff, so they meet a level of expertise in high-performance and specialty parts installation. For example, the Power Brokers will sell Tuner and Stage kits that can boost the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and Challenger SRT Hellcat up to 885 horsepower and 750-plus horsepower, respectively.
Direct Connection Modern Performance parts installed or replaced by a Dodge Power Brokers dealership on a Dodge vehicle will carry the three-year/36,000-mile new vehicle basic limited warranty and the five-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. The Power Brokers will only install parts and kits that are legal in each state.
“Today marks a milestone for our brand — the Dodge Power Brokers dealer network and DCPerformance.com are up and running and ready to accept orders for Direct Connection factory-backed performance parts from Dodge,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand CEO – Stellantis. “Dodge Power Brokers are not only the exclusive source for Direct Connection parts, but these dealerships feature staff trained to walk enthusiasts through potential Direct Connection performance upgrades and then handle installation of Direct Connection parts, while maintaining the vehicle warranty. The network is rolling out with an initial group of nearly 100 dealers — that number is only going to grow.”
Catering to Performance Customers
Not only will the dealers provide concierge level service, there is also a Direct Connection Hotline that will provide tech support to owners wanting help. That number is 1-800-998-1110. Experts will walk you through what is available and how it may suit your needs. Enthusiasts can find nearest Dodge Power Brokers dealership at Dodge.com/power-broker-direct-connection.html. The dealers will also sell vehicles with Direct Connection upgrades already installed.
A new website, New DCPerformance.com online headquarters will serve as a one-stop source to search, shop, price and purchase Direct Connection parts. The Direct Connection Modern Performance parts are designed, developed and tested by Stellantis engineers. That is why they carry factory-backed performance warranty coverage. Direct Connection features a lineup of more than 200 parts, including 14 performance kits for the production Dodge Challenger, 13 race-ready kits and four graphics packages for the Dodge Challenger Mopar Drag Pak. The parts will be delivered through the nearest Power Brokers Dealer.
