1988 Dodge Dynasty Overview

The 1988 Dodge Dynasty was Dodge's mid-size entry into the sedan market, replacing the old Diplomat, with a sister car in the Chrysler New Yorker. It came in two trims, the base and Premium models. Both sported a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder, 96-hp engine or an optional 3.0-liter, 141-hp V6 Mitsubishi motor. A 3-speed auto was standard, and the V6 could also be paired with a 4-speed automatic Ultradrive.

Plain and boxy on the outside and what is often referred to as a granny car, the Dynasty supposedly got its name from a much glitzier source, the TV soap opera "Dynasty." In reality, it was often used for fleet cars and by police. It was roomy, reportedly seating six. Options included air conditioning, power windows and locks, and cruise control. The Premium trim also offered an optional sunroof.

Owners felt the Dynasty was smooth and handled well on the road. It was a good practical family car, reliable and sturdy. Interior room made for comfortable long rides. The biggest complaint seems to be problems with the Mitsubishi V6 engine and a general consensus that the car's squared off look is not particularly attractive.
