Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealer Serving Dixon IL

If we had to choose the perfect place to live and work, we would choose Dixon, Illinois every time. Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram has been serving the Lee County area for years. We welcome everyone who comes through our doors, whether you are from Dixon, Rock Falls, Freeport, or anywhere else. Here are a few of the things we love about Dixon.


Dixon's modern history begins in the early 1800s when a man named Joseph Ogee built a ferry on the banks of the Rock River. In 1830, John Dixon, the man Dixon is named after, purchased the ferry and brought his family to the area. Today, Dixon is the county seat of Lee County. It was designated as the "Petunia Capital of Illinois" in 1999.
