Dodge has cut the Dart lineup down from the five current trim levels to three in an effort to simplify the range and lower the car’s starting price. The Dodge Dart will be discontinued in the future along with the Chrysler 200 due to slow sales and low demand.
The base Dart SXT Sport starts at $18,990, including destination, and comes standard with remote keyless entry, UConnect voice command with Bluetooth, satellite radio, cruise control, steering wheel audio controls, a four-speaker audio system, a USB port, and 16-inch alloy wheels. A 2.0-liter I-4 with 160 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque comes standard and can be mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Move up to the Dart Turbo and you’ll get a 1.4-liter turbo-four with 160 hp and 184 lb-ft mated to a six-speed manual, dual exhaust tips, black headlight bezels, black grille surround and crosshair grille, and 17-inch alloy wheels for a starting price $20,490.
Replacing the Dodge Dart GT as the range-topping model is the Dart GT Sport, which comes with the same 184-hp 2.4-liter I-4 as the car it replaces and starts at $21,990. A six-speed manual is standard while a six-speed automatic transmission is optional. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, dual exhausts, a black fascia and grille, dark-tinted automatic headlights, projector fog lights, power heated side mirrors, 10-way power driver’s seat, a UConnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch reconfigurable gauge cluster, a rearview camera, and dual-zone climate control.
