Official 2013 Dodge Dart build page live with actual pricing
When the first Dodge Dart configurator was launched in February, the Chrysler Group was quick to point out that the Dart build page was strictly for survey purposes and that actual pricing and feature availability could vary. Now that the official 2013 Dodge Dart build page is live, we can see that things indeed did change quite a bit and that includes a substantial decline in pricing between the survey site and the actual configuration site on Dodge.com. We have known for some time what the actual pricing would look like but now that the build page is up and running with official pricing – prospective Dart owners can see exactly how much their ideal compact Dodge sedan will cost.
The official 2013 Dodge Dart build site on Dodge.com only includes the SE, SXT, Rallye and Limited trimline with the R/T and more recently announced Aero package details coming later this year.
The 2013 Dodge Dart SE carries a build site price of $15,995 which does not include the destination charge of $795 so when no other options are chosen; the Dart SE carries an MSRP of $16,790. For comparison, the early Dodge survey site listed a tentative price of $17,100 so even after destination has been added in, the Dart SE is less expensive than originally stated. The Dart SE comes with the 2.0L Tigershark 4-cylinder engine with 160 horsepower and 148lb-ft of torque sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission although a 6-speed Powertech Automatic transmission can be chosen for $1,100. In the preliminary pricing, the automatic transmission option was expected to cost $1,200 so that feature has gotten a bit less expensive.
