Chrysler has finally revealed some of the most significant features of its latest car model which is the 2013 Dodge Dart. This event has placed an end to all of the rumours and speculations that are trying to describe the vehicle’s appearance, overall performance, and other related characteristics. In addition to this, Chrysler’s revelation has somehow encouraged more buyers to consider the 2013 Dodge Dart as one of their vehicle options since the vehicle has a lot of exciting characteristics to offer.
According to Chrysler, the 2013 Dodge Dart will go on sale probably this summer and this would be offered with three engine options. This includes the turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder Multiair, the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Tigershark, and the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder Tigershark. These engines would be mated to either a speed manual transmission, 6-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed dual dry-clutch transmission (DDCT). The 1.4-liter turbocharged Multiair and the 2.0-liter Tigershark produces up to 160 horsepower while the larger 2.4-liter Tigershark pumps out an impressive 184 horsepower.
Aside from the three engine and transmission options, Chrysler expects that the 2013 Dodge Dart would gain a significant amount of popularity upon its release this year since the car has a well-designed interior and exterior. The Dart is actually based on a widened and lengthened platform that is used on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta which is produced by Fiat.
Since the platform was extended, the Dart is longer and wider compared to the Giulietta a lot of car experts were convinced that the Dart offers more interior space for car occupants to move freely. In fact, most of these car experts commented that the Dart is as roomy as a mid-size sedan and the upscale materials used on the vehicle’s interior further improved the comfort it provides.
Finally, the 2013 Dodge Dart offers a number of standard equipments that buyers would surely like. This includes the dual-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, and the Uconnect touch screen. In addition to this, buyers could also avail of several technology upgrades such as the rear cross-path detection, blind spot monitoring, and the ParkView back-up camera on the rear.
