The Chrysler Group has a brand-new compact car that brings back a classic nameplate from the '70s. The 2013 Dodge Dart is the first Chrysler product based on Fiat architecture, but boasts Dodge styling cues.
Replacing the Dodge Caliber hatchback, the new Dodge Dart sedan will offer three engine choices: a turbo 1.4L MultiAir four-cylinder (160 hp), a 2.0L four (160 hp) and a 2.4L four (184 hp). Six-speed manual, automatic and dual-clutch transmissions will all be available as well.
The 2013 Dodge Dart should be on sale this summer.
For some reason the wisdom of smaller-than-standard size vans evaded North America until mid-2009 when the first Transit Connect arrived. The vehicle immediately won North American Truck of the Year at the 2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) and has proven itself popular with buyers ever since.
