For generations, Dodge has been manufacturing in-demand vehicles for many different types of buyers. From offering sporty muscle cars like the Challenger and Charger to boasting family-friendly safe SUVs like the Durango to providing rugged trucks like the Ram, Dodge continues to innovate and inspire.

But if you are in the market for a new Dodge auto, you’re probably wondering how much you can expect to pay for car insurance. The good news is that many Dodge models are relatively affordable to insure.

In fact, the national average annual premium car insurance cost for all Dodge models combined is $1,844, based on rates for a 40-year-old male with full coverage. Many will pay much less than this without skimping on coverage.

Before heading to the dealer showroom, learn more about the cost of car insurance on new Dodge vehicles so that you can anticipate what to budget.

Dodge car insurance cost by model

Dodge sells a variety of different new vehicles to choose from in 2021. The car insurance premium costs for each of these models will vary.

“The body type and class of any given vehicle matter more to its cost to insure than its make. Because Dodge has a diverse vehicle lineup, they aren’t inordinately expensive to insure across the board,” says Brian Martucci, finance editor for Money Crashers.

Still, some models are pricier to insure than others.

“For instance, a 2021 Dodge Charger will be more expensive to insure than a brand new Kia Spectra,” says Lauren McKenzie, an insurance broker with Learnandserve.org Powered by A Plus Insurance.

“Typically, sports cars will cost more for car insurance because the costs of parts for those vehicles are higher than others and safety features may not be as great as others, resulting in a larger amount of accidents for these types of cars. The cost to insure vehicles also depends upon the individual – the lower the risk for the individual, such as no violations, continuous insurance, being a homeowner, and being married, the cheaper the insurance will be.”

Take a look at the national average rates for annual insurance premiums on different Dodge models for 2021:

How to budget and save on Dodge car insurance

The bottom line? It’s smart to do your homework before heading to the dealer and choosing a brand-new or used vehicle so that you know what to anticipate when it comes to Dodge car insurance costs.

“Overall, the Dodge Durango and Dodge Ram will likely be the most affordable to insure for both low-risk and high-risk customers,” McKenzie notes.

“If you are a younger driver, you will probably pay more for auto insurance, so you may need to consider practicality versus style. If you are younger and you choose a fast, luxurious sports car, your monthly insurance payments could end up being more than your monthly auto loan payments.”

Prior to committing to a vehicle, estimate your car insurance costs and then shop around for the best value. Compare quotes from different insurance companies carefully.

“If your car insurance payments are still on the higher end, consider choosing a higher deductible, such as $1,000 instead of a $500 deductible – which will lower your premium,” recommends McKenzie. “Also, consider leaving off additional coverages like rental reimbursement or roadside assistance, which may save you money, too.”
