What Is Mopar?

As with many extraordinary things, Mopar started from humble beginnings. Its name derives from combining two words: “motor” and “parts.” If you’re a 1960s muscle car enthusiast, you know all about Mopar. But Chrysler introduced the term over 20 years before that period as a branding strategy in 1937. It worked so well that the brand still enjoys a cult-like following.

Who Manufactures Mopar Parts?

Stellantis, formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, owns FCA U.S., which controls Mopar, the parts division for all Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram vehicles. This global company has a presence in over 150 markets, and the Mopar division manufactures over 500,000 parts.

The Mopar Division calls Centerline, Michigan, home for its U.S. operations. It’s conveniently located near FCA U.S. headquarters 22 miles away in Auburn Hills. In 1953, the Mopar Parts Depot opened. While business operations continue from this location, Mopar manufactures its parts across the country and the world.

Mopar Product Line

You can find replacement parts for Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles in the Mopar catalog. Mopar also makes high-performance parts for upgrading these brands’ cars. Standard components include the drivetrain, engines, suspensions, brakes, exhaust, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. However, you can find a vast selection of interior and exterior accessories, including cargo systems, stylish wheels, performance hoods, and spoilers.

You can even have whole engines delivered. Mopar calls these “crate engines,” and they enjoy robust sales with specialty engines such as the Hellephant, a Hemi V-8 supercharged engine that generates over 1,000 horsepower. And if you’re a ’60s muscle car enthusiast, you can contact their restoration division if you own a classic Mopar car that needs a little TLC.

Specialty Mopar Performance Parts

Mopar has a performance division targeting racing enthusiasts looking for high-performance upgrades. It makes most of these parts for specialty drag and stage racing muscle cars, meaning you can’t necessarily register vehicles when you install these components, as they will no longer be street legal. You can purchase parts individually or as a complete package. Kits include race-ready wheels, tires, transmission, driveshaft, brakes, rear axle, and graphics.

The performance stage kits, called Scat Packs, come in three stages. There are factory-installed Scat Packs for Dodge Challengers and Chargers. However, these are Stage One packages. Stages Two and Three aren’t street legal.

Mopar manufactures nonperformance and performance parts, making it unique in the automobile industry. Most brands have a separate racing or performance division that handles their performance parts. However, due to its muscle car history, Mopar’s reputation is synonymous with performance. As a result, Mopar’s nonperformance parts enjoy the same quality reputation.

What Is Mopar Service?

At Marion Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we specialize in delivering Mopar service. We use only genuine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Mopar parts for all our services and repairs. These parts ensure your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram vehicle runs at its peak. Mopar produces them with the same materials and to the precise dimensions and operational specifications as your car’s original parts.

Customers frequently tell us they could save money using aftermarket parts because they cost less than genuine OEM Mopar parts. However, aftermarket parts manufacturers aren’t held to the same strict production standards as OEM Mopar parts, often resulting in lower-quality craftsmanship. Because of this, most customers who choose aftermarket parts experience poor performance and replace the parts sooner due to early breakdowns. Therefore, using aftermarket parts ends up costing you more.

You should also know that using aftermarket parts often voids your warranty. This is a particular concern for people using performance parts, as they affect costly components. That’s why so many drivers turn to Mopar parts and accessories. You can trust them to fit right, work properly, and not have an impact on your warranty coverage.

Mopar service is more than just Mopar parts. Our state-of-the-art service center provides ongoing factory training for our technicians to update them on the latest parts and repair practices. As a result, they bring a level of expertise other mechanics don’t possess. And we use the latest tools and equipment to diagnose and repair any issues you might have. So when you bring your vehicle to us for service, you can trust your car will run the way the factory intended.

We’ve streamlined the process with our online service scheduler. With a few clicks, you can set a convenient time to bring your vehicle in and leave the rest to us. Of course, we know many of our customers enjoy maintaining their vehicles in their home garages. If that sounds like you, we can help.

Our parts department has an expansive inventory of Mopar components at competitive prices. So we have what you need if you require a simple oil filter and oil or something more advanced, such as a performance cold air intake. You can order parts online, and we’ll have them ready for you when you arrive.

And we’re always here to support you if you have questions. Our service and parts technicians love chatting about cars. You may need some advice on a particular modification or find yourself in the middle of a complicated repair. In any case, call us and we’ll let you know what you need to do.

We also offer a rotating service and parts specials list to encourage proper maintenance. There, you’ll find coupons on parts, service discounts, and even free inspection offers. We recommend you check our specials often if you need a particular component or service.
