The 2013 Dodge Dart R/T

2013 Dodge Dart full range pricing announced, standard features outlined

We have known since the debut of the 2013 Dodge Dart at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show that the new C-segment compact sedan would carry a starting price of just $15,995 but today, the Chrysler Group announced full pricing for the entire trimline that will arrive in showrooms this June.

When the 2013 Dodge Dart hits dealerships around the US this summer, it will be available in 4 trimlines with a 5th coming later in the year. The Dart will offer the SE, SXT, Rallye and Limited in June while the sporty R/T package will hit in the third quarter of 2012. While today's announcement didnt offer every detail of the new sedan, we now have a very good look at what to expect when the Dart arrives this summer.

“The all-new Dodge Dart is a groundbreaking car, offering features and benefits never before found in a compact car,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “With class-leading style, customization, safety, technology, and interior levels of roominess, the all-new Dart perfectly blends Alfa Romeo DNA and Dodge passion and style into one all-new car that customers will be proud to own and look forward to driving.”

The 2013 Dodge Dart SE serves as the base model and, as expected, the entry level sedan carries a price of $15,995. That price includes the 2.0L Tigershark 4 cylinder engine packing 160 horsepower and 148lb-ft of torque channeled to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. The Dart SE will offer tons of standard features, including 10 standard air bags, four wheel disc anti-lock brakes, projection style headlamps, power windows, cloth bucket seats with 6-way manual controls, AM/FM CD with MP3 and the gorgeous LED wraparound taillight. The Dart SE and all other Dart models come with a 5-year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

The second trimline in the lineup is the 2013 Dodge Dart SXT which carries a price of $17,995. The Dart SXT includes all of the standard features of the SE models but adds 17” aluminum wheels, power exterior mirrors, power door locks, remote keyless entry, an enhanced sound system with six-speakers, a security alarm, an air conditioning system with a built in filtration system and a 60/40 split rear seat. Dart SXT buyers can also opt for added features like incredible 8.4” touch screen system featuring Garmin navigation, a power sunroof, a backup camera system and a 506 watt sound system upgrade.

Next in line is the 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye, starting at $18,995, and this package builds on those standard features from the Dart SE and SXT. The Rallye trimline adds a higher level of customization with four interior options including Black with Light Diesel Grey, Diesel with Light Diesel Grey, Black with Ruby Red or Diesel Grey with Citrus Peel. The Dart Rallye wears unique black exterior accents, black headlight bezels, projection fog lights, dual exhaust with bright tips, and a leather wrapped steering wheel featuring stereo controls and cruise control. Dart Rallye buyers can also select sportier Hyper Black wheels or the 1.4L MultiAir 4-cylinder, producing 160 horsepower and 184lb-ft of torque.
