Marchionne confirms Dodge Dart SRT4
There have long been rumors of a pending Dodge Dart SRT4 which have been bolstered by comments from SRT President Ralph Gilles but Sergio Marchionne’s comment to Automobile about the existence of the SRT Dart is the first piece of official information that it is in the works. Marchionne went on to state that "the only thing we're fighting over now is to determine how big an engine we stick in it."
Since even before the 2013 Dodge Dart was unveiled at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Chrysler brand fans and the sport compact world alike have been clamoring for a high performance version of the Dart from the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) division of the Chrysler Group. Chrysler hopes that the new Dart will obtain the level of success that the company saw from the Dodge Neon and one of the features that helped procure the Neon’s place in the automotive performance record books with the Neon SRT4; so it would make good sense for the sporty new Dart to also feature an SRT trimline.
