Some car manufacturers in recent years have had a tough time financially, none more so then the Chrysler Group that was once in Chapter 11 bankruptcy territory not so long ago. But the car manufacturer has been seeing much better times of late, and with the 2013 Dodge Dart have plenty to boast about.
The group has just seen an impressive comeback year by increasing market share and paying back government loans ahead of schedule. Now with the introduction of the new Dodge Dart revealed at the Detroit Auto show, this year promises to be good as well according to Motorauthority.
Chrysler believes the new Dart will cover a part of the market that the automaker doesn’t really represent currently. This sector accounts for around 15 percent of the US market and 25 percent in Canada.
At least one model in the Dodge Dart model range is thought to achieve 40 mpg on the highway, which with the concerns surrounding gas prices may tempt many drivers. Pricing for the entry level Dart SE will be only $15,995, and will still come sporting ten standard airbags, reconfigurable TFT gauge display, and enhanced interior materials.
There will also be a variety of model combinations that will include three different power plants, three transmissions, seven wheel options, 14 interior and 12 exterior color options, and 150 Mopar add-ons. Meanwhile according to Torque News the 2013 Dodge Dart will have the 2.0 and 2.4 Tigershark engines along with the 1.4l MultiAir unit that is also found in the American Fiat 500.
