New 2013 DODGE DART prepares for its launch
Using the same platform as the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T is due to be made in the United States, with full production having started in April 2012.
2013 Dodge Dart R/T will finally fill in a gap left by the Neon. The 2013 Dodge Dart R/T was in early pilot production in late October 2011, as early as 2009, this car was planned on extended Fiat C-EVO dimensions and the Fiat electronics network, along with a retuned Chrysler World Gas Engine and the 1.4 liter turbocharged Fiat engine.
The 2013 Dodge Dart is a compact car with two parents, Chrysler and Fiat; the models would be the base SE, volume SXT, Rallye (possibly as an SXT package), 2013 Dodge Dart R/T, and a Limited. The 2013 Dodge Dart R/T will reportedly be the longest, widest, and tallest car in its class, and the interior will be quieter than the very-quiet Chevrolet Cruze. Compared with other cars in its class, the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T has the longest wheelbase, front track, length, width, and greenhouse footprint.
The 2013 Dodge Dart R/T took the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, an upper-market hatchback; widened, lengthened, and re-skinned it, made it into a sedan, replaced the driver-facing systems with Chrysler ones, retuned the suspension, and put in their own engines. The result is the reasonably 2013 Dodge Dart R/T pricing, quiet, and sporty car with a good interior space, numerous features, a flashy dashboard, and a good balance of economy and acceleration. While quality and durability will not be known for years to come, both were definite priorities from the start of the program through to the production of the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T.
The key to the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T 40 mpg highway rating will be its Fiat-derived six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, bolted to a choice of three fuel efficient inline-fours. As we previously reported, the three engine choices in the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T are a 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter “Tigershark” I-4, and a turbocharged 1.4-liter “Fire” I-4 that see’s duty in the pint-sized Fiat 500 Abarth.
The six-speed dual-clutch auto won’t be the only fuel-efficient transmission choice in the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T specs though; ZF will build a new nine-speed automatic gearbox for the Dart in its South Carolina factory starting in 2013. ZF officials believe that the nine-speed automatic will boost the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T fuel economy by 10 to 16 percent over the dual-clutch transmission.
