Why do we offer 152 individually-placed LEDs? Because it’s the perfect number for our “Racetrack” taillamp array, standard on Dodge Dart R/T, and available on SXT, Rallye and Limited models.
It’s the kind of combination we love to make – modern Dodge technology and signature Dodge style.
class-exclusive dual exhaust
There’s a touch of swagger that comes with two tailpipes, and it’s not usually the kind of swagger you find on a compact car. There’s an implied power and an implied style that’s right at home with Dodge, and you can see that in our class-exclusive dual exhaust.
stylized front end with hyper black grille
Another touch of style not usually found on a compact car. Again, when we created the Dodge Dart, we gave both function and form equal time, but with attitude. The grille is much more compressed, and is designed to appear as if it’s bursting through the mask – like fascia.
Glossy Piano Black paint-in-mold finishes are used significantly on the Dodge Dart R/T, including the grille surround, which sets off the stunning Hyper Black grille. Dodge’s “Hyper Black” finish, exclusive to the performance models, makes the projector headlamps and wheels attention-grabbing too.
18-inch aluminum wheels with sport-tuned suspension
One of the first things anyone notices about a car are the wheels, and these are striking. 18-inch wheels are stylish enough to get noticed riding down the boulevard and durable enough to help you handle whatever the road throws at you.
A sport suspension corners more tightly at higher speeds while maintaining a smooth ride all the way. Our engineers evened out the ride by creating frequency-dampening shock absorbers.
an interior as exciting as the exterior
Not a lot of manufacturers would spend time worrying about how soft their compact car’s steering wheel is, but our engineers designed the touch points of the Dodge Dart interior to be as soft to the touch as possible. And we’ve held them to that standard, from the hand-cut, sewn, and dual-stitched brow of the Limited and R/T to the leather-wrapped steering wheel of our other models.
To make sure that design worked, we used some of the smoothest surfaces we could find, like Nappa leather. And we gave you the ability to pick the color of your interior, from Black with Red stitching to Black with Ruby Red accents.
We’ve also designed the Dodge Dart soft ambient LED interior lighting to be warm and comfortable. There was no compromise with the Dodge Dart R/T. Take one out. You’ll enjoy everything about it.
available heated seats & available class-exclusive heated steering wheel
Heated front seats are no surprise on a fine luxury car. They are a pleasant amenity, that offer you and your front passenger individualized comfort. What is surprising, is finding them on a compact car. The Dodge Dart R/T offers available heated front seats.
In addition, the 2013 Dodge Dart is the first compact sedan to offer an available heated steering wheel. The heating element in the steering wheel heats up when temperatures are below 40 degrees, to help warm the driver’s hands in cold weather. You can turn the heat feature on or off using the Uconnect® system.
class-exclusive 7-inch tft
As the most technologically advanced car in its class, the Dodge Dart includes a number of class-exclusive features, including a premium 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) reconfigurable cluster display. Not only does the display deliver real-time information on performance, navigation and vehicle status, it truly comes alive with countless ways to reconfigure in full color and incredibly rich graphics never before seen on a compact car.
The most technologically advanced car in its class
Experience the largest touchscreen in the compact car class at 8.4 inches, available on Dodge Dart SXT and Rallye, standard on Limited and R/T models.
The 2013 Dodge Dart is tuned to deliver with the available Uconnect® 8.4, featuring AM/FM/CD/MP3 and available SiriusXM Satellite Radio with replay mode. Get up-to-the-minute weather, fuel prices, sports and movie listings with available Garmin® Navigation and SiriusXM Travel Link™. Crank up your own tunes via remote SD card or remote USB Port with iPod® mobile device control, or Bluetooth® streaming audio. And with available steering wheel-mounted audio controls, you can keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel while you select your songs, make phone calls or pick your next destination via navigation.
2.4L TIGERSHARK™ MULTIAIR II 4-CYLINDER ENGINE (184 HP & 171 LB-FT of TORQUE)
SEGMENT-EXCLUSIVE MULTIAIR ENGINE TECHNOLOGY
Simply put, the 2.4L Tigershark™ MultiAir II 4-cylinder engine, standard on the Dodge Dart R/T, combines all of the best engine qualities. It’s the premier engine to go with our premier Dodge Dart model. It’s fast: more horsepower for better acceleration. It’s efficient: more intake for better efficiency. It’s economical: more advanced MultiAir technology.
fun to drive. economical. efficient.
Hundreds of hours of development time in our wind tunnel combined with advanced technology, helped Dodge Dart achieve its world-class aerodynamic performance.
Dodge engines are known for their smooth, lively rides. All the Dodge Dart powertrains provide excellent fuel economy.
underbody aerodynamic treatment
The 2013 Dodge Dart includes available underbody belly panels that cover a large portion of the underbody and are more typically found on luxury vehicles.
Extensive use of these and additional underbody treatments collectively reduce aerodynamic drag. In addition to the aerodynamic benefits, the panels also help reduce road noise in the passenger compartment.
active grille shutters
The Dodge Dart is the first Dodge vehicle to use an active grille shutter system. It reduces drag by redirecting airflow around the front and down the sides, rather than through the vehicle, enhancing aerodynamic performance.
Engine coolant temperature and vehicle speed determine whether the shutters are open or closed. For example, the shutters will automatically close at highway speeds, when less engine cooling is needed and open during hot city driving, traveling up a hill or pulling a trailer.
multiair technology: benefits three ways
MultiAir technology is an electro-hydraulic system that controls intake air, cylinder by cylinder and stroke by stroke, depending on the precise operating conditions and demands from the driver and engine control system. It delivers optimal combustion at any speed under all driving conditions.
The result is significant: MultiAir technology helps increase low engine torque, improve efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
class leading – 60 standard and available safety & features
Starting with advanced high-strength, hot-stamped steels, Dodge Dart offers an incredibly stiff overall structure and a safety cage with outstanding protection. Along with 10 standard airbags, reactive front head restraints, and available options like Blind Spot Monitoring and class exclusive Rear Cross Path Detection, the 2013 Dodge Dart is among the safest vehicles in its class.
parkview® rear back up camera
Parking can sometimes be a challenge, even for the most experienced driver.
That’s why we offer the ParkView® Rear Back up Camera. When your vehicle is moving in reverse, the Uconnect touchscreen displays an image of the area behind your vehicle, to help with parallel parking, backing out of parking spaces, and avoiding pedestrians.
rain sensing wipers
Rain-sensing wipers detect moisture on the windshield and activate automatically. The system is especially useful for sudden road splash from other vehicles. You don’t have to take your hands off the wheel to adjust the wiper controls as the rain level changes.
keyless enter ‘n go™
Keyless Enter ‘n Go™ lets you to unlock the doors by touching the front door handles as long as you have the key fob on you. Once inside, you can start the engine by pressing the Engine Start-Stop button and stepping on the brake or clutch pedal. This convenient security feature is available on Dodge Dart Limited & R/T.
rear cross path detection
There are certain things that a driver who’s backing out of a parking space just can’t see, like a car coming from either side. Available on the Dodge Dart Limited, Rear Cross Path Detection – available on Dodge Dart Limited and R/T – helps solve that problem, using radar to detect lateral movement on both sides of your car and warning you when something’s coming.
