The word Mopar itself is actually a combination of the words “motor” and “parts.” The word was first used back in the 1920s to sell Chrysler car parts. The name became its own brand starting in 1937. Since those early days, Mopar has come to be an umbrella term used to describe the different vehicles and parts that make up the different brands owned over the years.
Throughout the years, Chrysler has manufactured some of the most familiar domestic brands around. This has included Dodge, Plymouth, Jeep, and the Dodge Ram trucks (such as the Ram 1500). Most recently, Chrysler has merged with Fiat, bringing some of the largest European vehicle brands under the Mopar moniker. While Mopar does not actually manufacture cars directly, Chrysler has used Mopar products to produce different types limited-edition vehicles over the years.
