About Dodge Dart
Chrysler created and constructed a tiny MPV concept car, the Dodge Hornet, which debuted in 2006. This was Dodge’s first effort at producing a car of this size, and it was scheduled for release in 2010. The project was scrapped as a result of the 2009 financial crisis and the Chrysler Group’s restructuring. Following Chrysler’s late-2010 merger with Fiat, the compact Dodge Hornet concept took on a new form to share a Fiat base. The Dodge Dart, a new small sedan, was announced by the automaker in December 2011.
The Dart was set to go on sale in U.S. dealerships in late June 2012. Aero manufacturing began in the third quarter of 2012. The manufacture of the GT commenced in the second quarter of 2013.
Sergio Marchionne commented on the possibility of producing a hatchback model for the North American market on March 4, 2014, at the Geneva Motor Show, saying “our North American consumers will gradually be offered alternatives for the same or close to expense,” and that potential buyers could account for either the Fiat 500X or the Jeep Renegade.
The Dart comes with three transmission options, including a Hyundai Powertech 6F24 automatic transmission with electrically boosted power steering with a sensor and electric motor fitted to the rack itself. Interiors can be customized with 12 various color/fabric combinations and optional ambient lighting systems; leather seats are an option. The dashboard has a 7-inch (178-mm) color TFT display, a “floating island bezel” set between traditional round gauges, and a graphically displayed trip computer and navigation system information; it is incorporated to seem as part of the gauge cluster itself, rather than a separate panel. A glove box, center console with auxiliary electronics connections, and console map pockets are among the storage options. The trunk volume is 13.1 cubic feet (370 L).
Except for the SE, all Darts received standard U Connect Bluetooth telephones in 2014. For 2014, all models except the SE and Limited received a Blacktop Package, which included black alloy wheels and black highlights, as well as a California Appearance Package for the SXT and Limited.
The Dart was the first compact car to include a rear obstacle detection system and blind spot monitoring. A Dart version with an uncorrected combined driving range of 40 miles per US gallon (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpgimp) (16.94 km/L) allowed Fiat to purchase an additional 5% of Chrysler Group.
The suspension system on the Dart is similar to that of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta: independent MacPherson struts, coil springs, twin-tube dampers, and a stabilizer bar up front, and independent multilink suspension in the rear. According to Dart’s chief engineer, the suspension has been slightly softened compared to the Alfa. “We’ve taken a little edge off it,” he says, “and it’s a blast to toss around.”
