We were all sad to hear that the Dodge Dart was being pulled from production just like what happened years ago with the original Dart. Was is pulled only to return in a few decades, reborn with new technology and classic styling? We don’t know, the future is uncertain for the Dodge Dart. What we do know is that there are still a few Dodge Dart models available at All Star Dodge Ram near Glendale. Today we want to share with you a little bit of information on the last generation of the Dodge Dart.
The Dart, a front-wheel-drive sport compact, joined the Dodge lineup for the 2013 model year.For 2016, a new Sport Appearance Hood is optional for Dart GT and Dart SXT models with either a Rallye or Blacktop package.Otherwise, the Dart carries over largely unchanged.The Dart name dates from the 1960’s.
We have found the Dart drives well and delivers on the promise of sporty handling.
The standard engine for the Dodge Dart is a 160-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.Fuel economy for the base Dart SE with the 2.0-liter engine and manual gearbox is EPA-rated at 25/36 mpg City/Highway, 29 mpg Combined; with the automatic it’s 24/34 mpg, or 27 mpg Combined.
A more powerful choice is the 160-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that comes with Dart Aero models, matched to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a dual-clutch automatic transmission.”While horsepower is the same as the 2.0-liter, the turbocharged engine offers more torque, which propels the car more briskly from standing starts.The Dart Aero manages an EPA-estimate of 28/41 mpg City/Highway, that highway figure being particularly impressive.”-autoblog.com
