    Chrysler-Fiat’s Brainchild: The 2013 Dodge Dart

    During the 60s, and most of the 70s, the Dodge Dart was one of the best-selling compact cars in North America. In 1976, the last Dart rolled off the production line. Since then customers have become increasingly interested in the compact sedan. To keep with market trends, Dodge has recently unveiled the 2013 Dart.

    The updated model gives customers a compact car built for performance, reliability and fuel efficiency. SJ Denham’s Sales Manager, JR Starrett, says, “Its state-of-the-art technology, segment-leading levels of interior roominess and exceptional value throughout the range” set the five-passenger sedan apart from its competition.

    Everyone Wants to Drive It

    The Dodge Dart earned the title of "Most Significant Vehicle" at the North American International Auto Show, was named one of the “Top 10 Cars of the Detroit Auto Show” by Kelley Blue Book and made MSN Autos’ “12 Cars We Can’t Wait to Drive” list. And it’s no wonder -- Alfa Romeo styling coupled with unmatched Dodge performance makes the 2013 Dart a wish list item for just about anyone. Baby boomers as well as their kids (heck, even their grand kids!) have much to be excited about.

    A Marriage Built to Last

    The 2013 Dodge Dart, inspired by Alfa Romeo Giulietta architecture, is the first car developed jointly by Chrysler and parent company Fiat. Their dedication to building a “car that you actually want to drive” has paid off.

    JR and his team are impressed with the Chrysler-Fiat brainchild’s unmistakable styling, technological advancements, and class-leading standard safety and security features such as 10 airbags, and optional blind spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection (options not available in other vehicles in this class).

    Precision craftsmanship makes the 2013 Dart a vehicle that is sure to be respected and appreciated for years to come: clean, contemporary lines, a 106.4-in. wheelbase, strut suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes along with a well-equipped cabin featuring a driver-oriented dash, extensive use of soft-touch materials, ambient lighting and UConnect Touch Media Center, to name a few.

    Choices, Choices, Choices

    People want choices and Dodge wants to deliver: “One new design. Over 100,000 ways to personalize it.” Compact in size, but not in options, the Dart is available in 12 exterior colors, 14 color and trim options, 3 engines (1.4, 2.0 or 2.4 L Tigershark) and 3 dual-clutch transmissions (6- or 9- speed). The endless options give drivers an opportunity to build a machine that fits their individual needs. And with a low sticker price starting at just $15,995*, the Dart is a vehicle that everyone can afford to drive.
