2016 Dodge Dart Coming Soon to TacomaThe 2016 Dodge Dart Coming Soon to Tacoma is, as it sounds, a zippy compact car that has gotten an overhaul for its brand-new model year. Three different engines and several comfort and convenience technologies make the Dart economical but well-equipped.

Features in the 2016 Dodge Dart

The 2016 Dodge Dart Coming Soon to Tacoma features a base model that is already full of features, including AM/FM/Satellite-prepped radio with MP3 capability and an auxiliary input jack, four speakers, and optional Bluetooth capability and wheel-mounted controls. The latter two are standard on every trim above the standard SE. A 12-volt power outlet and available cruise control are just some of the driver convenience function.

Move up trims and voice-activated navigation becomes standard, as does a first-row LCD screen including two in the highest-level trims. 6-way power drivers’ seats are available on the GT and Limited trims, and seat trim upgrades to leather. For convenience, the SXT, GT, and Limited trims also feature a 60/40 split rear bench for easier loading and equipment.

The Upcoming 2016 Dodge Dart in Tacoma

The current version of the Dodge Dart features either a 2.0L or a 2.4L inline-four engine, and several options that will likely carry over to the 2016 Dodge Dart Coming Soon to Tacoma. Technology in the current model includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, UConnect with Voice Command options and Bluetooth connectivity, an Electronic Vehicle Information Center for convenience, and Garmin GPS Navigation. The current model offers several packages as well, including a technology package that adds driver-assist features such as rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic high beam headlamp control, blind-spot alert, rear cross-path detection, and a Rear Park Assist system that uses sound waves to find obstacles that may be in the way of your maneuvering.

2013 Dodge Dart

November was a rough month for the Dodge Dart. All told, Chrysler managed to deliver 4,489 units, down from 5,455 in October, but perhaps more telling is the sizable inventory Dodge now has on hand. Chrysler added a third shift to the Belvidere, Illinois plant that produces the new compact in order to satiate projected demand, and as a result, Dodge now has a 112-day supply of Dart models. That equates to 23,446 units waiting for a new home. Automakers typically average a supply of around 73 days. But the news wasn’t so grim for the rest of the Chrysler stable.

Ward’s Auto reports the Chrysler 200 saw particularly good sales through November, with the four-door seeing a 49.6 percent increase through the first 11 months of 2012 compared to the same time period on 2011. Likewise, the genetic sibling to the 200, the Dodge Avenger, saw sales jump 54.8 percent year over year through the same 11 months.

Italian Immigrant Is Pretty Sharp, But A Few Degrees Short Of A Bullseye

2013 Dodge Dart

The 2013 Dodge Dart is the most visible manifestation of the still-new monogamous relationship between Chrysler and Fiat, the Pentastar’s savior from the depths of government-sponsored bankruptcy (or worse). If you’ll recall, one of the big problems pundits, management and government officials identified with Chrysler’s US lineup was its complete lack of competitive small cars.

Now would be a good time to mention that Dodge had a good thing with the original Neon. Not only did the little subcompact sell in conspicuously high numbers, it was also pretty fun to drive, especially in 150-horsepower ACR Coupe trim. In fact, so entertaining was the little two-door coupe, powered as it was by a dual-overhead-cam version of Chrysler’s 2.0-liter four cylinder, that it spawned its very own racing series.

The successful Neon got a redesign in the year 2000, and as has so often been the case, the Pentastar Crew didn’t do nearly enough to keep it competitive amidst a sea of Civics and Corollas, save the way-too-quick-for-its-own-good Neon SRT4, that is. The response to lagging market share? The Dodge Caliber, introduced in 2007. Suffice it to say that the Caliber was not the answer small-car buyers were looking for.

Enter the Dart. Is this compact the small-car savior Chrysler envisioned when it paired with Italy’s Fiat? Let’s take a closer look.

Matte Gray Dodge Dart Spy Photos

Our spy photographers have caught something interesting rolling around Auburn Hills. This Dodge Dart R/T wears some interesting matte gray paint as well as a set of 19-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero performance rubber. It’s difficult to tell from this vantage, but the sedan may sit slightly lower than other models we’ve seen as well. Of course, it’s difficult to miss the aggressive hood scoop planted front and center. Don’t get too excited, though. Odds are this is not the much-rumored SRT-4, but rather a special one-off whipped up for the 2012 SEMA show next month. That hood, for example, comes straight from the Mopar catalog.

Still, we wouldn’t rule out Dodge offering a matte paint on the Dart option sheet. If Hyundai can make the coating viable on a large volume model like the Veloster, there’s certainly nothing stopping Chrysler from doing the same. Keep your ear to the ground for more information.

Hitting at least 40 miles per gallon is practically a necessity to compete in the compact car segment these days, and the 2013 Dodge Dart has hit this mark with the all-new Aero package. The Dart Aero is Dodge‘s fuel economy package for the car that starts at $19,295 (not including the $795 destination charge), and while Hyundai has been saving the asterisks since 2010, many other automakers use a similar method to get that magic 40-mpg rating onto the Monroney label.

The Dart Aero receives Fiat‘s 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo I4 and numerous other changes to hit up to 41 mpg highway with the manual transmission which is an improvement of 2 mpg alone over Chrysler‘s initial estimates for the car. Opting for the new dual dry clutch transmission will drop the highway number to an even 40 mpg – cars with either transmission are rated at 28 mpg city and 32 mpg combined. These are significant gains over initial Dart models with the 2.0-liter engine that were rated at up to 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway/29 mpg combined. This new engine also delivers the same 160 horsepower as the base engine, but it adds an extra 36 pound-feet of torque rated at 184 lb-ft.

Other than the new engine and the advanced DDCT gearbox, the Dart Aero was able to deliver such an improvement in fuel economy courtesy of a lower profile, active grille shutters, underbody aero kit and low-rolling resistance tires.

Compared to the base 2013 Dart, the Aero package is a $3,300 premium, but cars like the Focus SFE, Civic HF, Cruze Eco, Mazda3 Skyactiv and Jetta TDI all charge a premium for playing in the 40-mpg sandbox. Included in this higher price, the Dart Aero comes standard with some of the Dart’s unique features like the 8.4-inch media center, the Dart’s seven-inch TFT gauge cluster and one of the car’s most stylish elements, the LED “racetrack” taillights.

It isn’t clear when the Dart Aero will be on sale, but Chrysler says that the car went into production over the summer. Scroll down to read the full press release on this car.

Dodge has released a second smash-cut “How to…” ad for the new Dart. Just like the last one, its full of a whole lot of stuff coming at you at once.

Dodge would like you to think that its R&D department constructed a time machine, and brought a man back from the future to construct the thin film transistor (TFT) display that can be ordered to replace traditional analog gauges on the Dart, as well as the massive-for-a-small-car 8.4-inch Uconnect touch screen display. Apparently after using Minority Report-style technology, he creates these two devices, is sent back to the future, and the time machine is destroyed. How did the spy photographers not catch this?

OK, but seriously, Dodge is making the point that the TFT screen and Uconnect 8.4 are seriously high tech and especially rare in a compact car. Oh yeah, and there’s more Tom Brady.

Check out the video and accompanying press release below. This ad will air during a commercial break tonight on a special Wednesday edition of Sunday Night Football (that last bit only makes sense if you watch football regularly.)

Travis Pastrana wins Global Rallycross race in New Hampshire aboard his Dodge Dart

Travis Pastrana has had a tough start to 2012, wrecking out of nearly every race he’s entered. The Global RallyCross Championship has been particularly frustrating, with the Red Bull Motorsports driver finishing 8th and 15th in the first two events of the season and failing to make its past the first round of the X Games after getting smashed into the wall in the first turn.

Pastrana hopes his fortunes have turned around, though, after managing to give the Dodge Dart its first RallyCross win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this past weekend. He qualified third overall and managed to win his heat, giving him a spot on the front row for the final race. Pastrana took advantage of his position, jumping out to a first lap lead after passing Tanner Foust in a hairpin and eventually finishing just ahead of Samuel Hubinette. Brian Deegan rounded out the podium in third place, with Foust finishing in fourth and Ken Block in fifth.

“It’s been so long, I almost forgot what it’s like to win,” said Pastrana after the race. “It is absolutely awesome to get out here and get on top. It has been a rough season.”

The next and final race of the 2012 Global RallyCross season will be at Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the weekend of September 28-29. Check out the videos below for all the leaps, jumps and bumps.
