The SRT Viper display at the 2013 NAIAS

SRT Viper to be refreshed in 2015, Dart SRT delayed until 2016

Based on an official yet vague company document released today, it appears as though the new SRT Viper will receive a refresh in 2015 while the high performance Dodge Dart SRT looks like it might not arrive until 2016 at the earliest.

The information provided on the future SRT Viper and Dodge Dart SRT as part of the 2012 financial presentation offers a tremendous amount of information while being incredibly vague at the same time. However, with a little common sense combined with a look at what has gone on with the Chrysler Group in the past few years, we can formulate a few educated guesses as to what the future of the Street and Racing Technology brand could look like. Unfortunately, there are no new models planned for the SRT brand between now and 2016 so it looks as though the high performance Dodge Dart SRT could be several years from production.

The vague information on the future of the SRT brand starts in 2012 and continues up to the 2016 year beginning with last year’s launch of the 2013 SRT Viper. In 2013, this information lists the debut of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, followed by three refreshed vehicles in 2014, one refreshed vehicle in 2015 and a new Chrysler-built SRT vehicle in 2016. Beyond that, no information is offered but based on the recent debuts, the popular rumors and a little common sense – we can predict what is coming.
