Dodge Monaco information:
The Dodge Monaco had a long nose design which made its way into the options list of the consumers very fast. The car had a retro look to it which appealed to everyone and made the headlines f the motor world industry in no time. Such was the success of the design that the car got its name in the list of the cars to be used by the police department as their official vehicles. In a few months after getting into the police department’s list the car soon came into the scene in the form of the official police vehicle. This vehicle was meant to touch high speeds and hit into cars with minimum damage to the own car or the driver. The car soon became the signature of macho feeling in the men of that time.
The Dodge Monaco has C-type body which gained a lot of popularity as soon as the car hit the market. It was brought into the market with more than the colour options introduced by any other car maker brand. With the newer models the car brought in newer colours along with dual colours.
The car has a lot of room and fits in all the passengers with no difficulty. The features presented by the car maker are basic but still are sufficient to make the ride of the driver a pleasing one with minimum difficulties and bringing all the necessities within an arm’s length from the driver. The front seats are bucket designed which are designed in a way that makes the driver feel comfortable and makes the driver sink into the seats as if the seats have been specially designed for the driver. The windows of the car are tinted to make the window reflect all the sunlight that comes from the windows that makes anti-sunlight, which is a boon for the driver’s that get irritated because of the sunlight entering into the car and blocking the view sometimes. The seats are adjustable which are both front side reclining as well as height adjustment feature.
The car has been made sporty in designing which makes it a versatile vehicle that can be used on a lot of terrain without a lot of difficulties and adjusting to be done by the driver. The rear seats of the car are also adjustable thus making the ride of the car a delight and comfortable experience for both the driver as well as the passengers. The car has a cabin that resembles the cockpit of an aeroplane with controls on the left and right side of the drivers well as on the centre and above the driver’s seat. This makes the driver feel privileged to be driving such a high machine. The mirrors used in the car are heated which prevents any dew from condensing on the window that otherwise blocks the view of the driver and increases the chances of any accident. The car has used leather in the interiors which brings a regal look into the car.
The interior is roomy as already mentioned above and has the space for occupying 4 passengers excluding the driver. The car has a bonnet which can be used for storing the cargo. It can help use the space by folding the rear seats which increases the space. The engine is very powerful which brings a powerful feel into the car making the car run at a high speed as soon as the accelerator is pressed. The car has headlamps that submerge into the body of the car and bring in a new design for the headlamps and a new concept that has been copied by many other car makers.
The engine of the Monaco has a capacity of 3000 cubic centimetres, which can give out a power of 15 horsepower, having the usage of V-6 technology. The car is available to the buyer with two engine options, and it is left upon the buyer to choose one of the engines as the option from the two variables provided. The car is mid-sized with minimum variants, but it has a size which is larger and more spacious as compared to other models of the same genre. The designing used in the car was different along with it was also in terms with other car designs that was being used by other Dodge cars. The design has been said to be a true copy of the designs of the other models used by Dodge, which, though not being the best seller has been praised world over and copied into the designing of other cars as well.
The Monaco was first brought into the market with a C-type body, which became the most famous because of the revolutionary design. It remained in the market form the mid 60s to the mid 80s. The car later moved to the B-type body which was introduced into the market after the success of the first C-type model. The manufacturing of this type of body was carried for two years, which replaced the earlier C-Type (Coronet) body. This big structure of the car was carried on for the manufacturing for the remaining period from the year mid 80s. A very few people know that the Monaco has inherited its design from the famous Dodge car, the Polara. However to bring the sales of the car to newer heights the car was revived and brought into the market with a different name which relied on the increased and wider Dodge dealer networking.
The C-model had a weight of 2008 pounds, while the Polara had a weight of 218 pounds all of which was on the higher side but it compromised with the weight by using a high powered engine which could drag the car at high speeds with no fuss.
The car had a unique design and it was the USP for the car, but yet it lacked the power experience that the user wanted from it along with the looks. However the car got its share of acclamation from the police department by the involvement of the vehicle into the league of the official vehicles to be used by their officers for that time and the time to come. Thus, in all this was a macho vehicle that attracted the guys, but failed to earn the acclaim that it deserved for the revolutionary design.
