If you have been aching for a small American sedan, Dodge wants to make things a little easier for you. The Dart is arriving into the 2016 model year with fewer model choices and cheaper prices. Rather than a handful of models with varying drivetrains for each, Dodge has pared it down to just three models, each with its own motor. The base level SXT Sport comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, the Turbo car comes with a 1.4-liter turbo-four, and the top-trim GT Sport features a 2.4-liter unit. Prices start at $17,995, $19,495, and $20,995 respectively. Dodge says that is a drop of more than $1000 for the GT Sport.
See, cheap and easy.
Of course there are some extra options and things that can complicate things, but at the very least every model is getting keyless entry, Bluetooth, Uconnect voice functions and SiriusXM satellite radio. If you are in the market, may I suggest grabbing the Turbo car. It’s the same basic motor that is in the Fiat 500 Abarth and 124 Abarth, and it comes mated to a six-speed manual for true driver engagement/shenanigans. Considering the Dart Turbo costs more than $3000 less than the Fiat 500 Abarth, comes with more room and has more gears in its transmission, I’d say it actually looks a pretty great deal.
Dodge dealers can start placing orders for the new car at the end of the month.
