Dodge Medium-Tonnage Conventional Cab

    The Medium-Tonnage Conventional Cab Dodges changed more then any other big Dodge built during its lifetime. The Medium Tonnage went from 1961 until 1973 using the "Sweptline" Body style and then changed in 1974 to the same sheetmetal that the pickups were using at the time. They would last in the states until 1977 when they, like their bigger brothers, were dropped. They continued to produced them in Mexico though, through about 1999 when Daimler-Benz bought into Chrysler and the company became Daimler-Chrysler. This was due in part to Daimler-Benz already having interest in the medium-duty truck market and not wanting the Dodge Trucks to cut into that segment. They continued to 1993 with the pickup style sheetmetal, and from 1994 until their demise, they used the sheetmetal of what is commonly referred to as the second generation Dodges. They were offered as a 4500, 5500 or 6500 models. Rumor has it and sources continue to say that we will once again see medium-tonnage Dodges being offered in the United States as soon as 2007, offering the 4500 and 5500 models. This particular page is broken down into the following years, 1969, 1970-71, 1972-73 and 1974-77. These were the years in which definite changes could be found in these trucks. Below are several links for Medium-Duty Literature.

1969

    The year was 1969, the grille used in the Dodges at the time was only done for '68 and '69. The hood was in it's first year of use and would be the design until '73, the last year for this body style. 

    Available in GVW's from 12,000 to 25,500 lbs., the new Dodge conventional cab models retain all the most valuable features of previous models. Features like solid all-welded construction with box section beams at stress points, husky door hinges reinforced deep into doors, thick cushioning rubber body mounts, and extensive protection against rust. At the same time, several important changes have been made to modernize the truck's appearance and add more comfort safety. For example, the front end has been restyled, instrument cluster and controls have been streamlined, new two-speed wipers have been included as standard equipment, and shoulder belts have been made available as an option (regular lap belts are standard, of course). The Dodge medium-tonnage conventional cab is just about the most durable tightly built cab going, and an exceptional value by any truck user's standards.

Standard Interior

     The new standard cab interiors are color-keyed, complete with color-compatible headliner fabric. Seats are of longwearing heavy vinyl, with the premium of strong (but really comfortable) coil-spring construction. And door handles are recessed safety in fiber glass door trim panels. Check the standard equipment list below for the many other standard interior features.

1970-71

   The years of 1970 and '71 saw trucks built they really incorporated no change from one to the other. The big change in design from '69 to '70 was that of the grille, cab lights and side marker lights. Beyond that you had change in GVW's and models offered. The D800 was once again reoffered, staying off the options list for '69. 

    These Dodge Truck models range in GVW's from 14,000 to 30,000 lbs., or from, slightly above the low-tonnage range into the bottom of the heavy-duty range. Their rugged cabs continue with such construction features as solid all-welded design with box section beams at stress points, husky door hinges reinforced deep into doors, thick cushioning rubber body mounts, and extensive protection against rust and corrosion. While these cab features remain unchanged, a continuous program of modernization is being followed. Exterior and interior styling has been changed and improved, with a new instrument cluster face plate, standard two-speed wipers, and optional shoulder belts to supplement the standard seat belts. Here on Dodge conventional medium-tonnage "D"-series models, you get just about the most rugged truck cab built and an exceptional value by any standard of measurement.

1972-73

   Model years 1972 and '73 saw the last use of the Sweptline Style Sheetmetal. The list of trucks offered was dropped down to just the D500, D600 and D800. For the most part, everything else on the trucks remained the same. 

    The three Dodge conventional cab medium -duty models (D500, D600 and D800) span a GVW range from 13,500 pounds to 29,500 pounds, making them ideal, economically priced units for such applications as dump, can, stake and tractor-trailer service. The cab is of rugged welded construction with box-section beams at stress points, heavy-duty recessed door hinges, rubber cab mounts, and extensive rust and corrosion protection contributing further to long, trouble-free cab life. Other features adding still more value to these models include standard two-speed windshield wipers and the optional Custom Cab package. This Dodge cab has earned a reputation for ruggedness under severe kinds of service, and as a cab that is a great value.

1974-77

    The final three years of the medium-tonnage models in the states saw the introduction of a totally new truck. Gone was the use of the "Sweptline" sheetmetal, already two years gone from the pickups, and new was the introduction of the sheetmetal used on the current line of Dodge pickups. Back was the option of a D700 as well as a slight increase in GVW for this line.

Kary Van. The Dodge medium-duty Kary Van is available in six body lengths,& six wheelbases, and two models. It comes "road ready" from Dodge.
