The all-new 2013 Dodge Dart is revealed just days before it's scheduled to be unveiled at Detroit.
As the doors of the COBO Center are about to open, the excitement emanating from Detroit can be felt throughout the industry. This city is the birthplace of countless American automotive greats, so it's only befitting that the rejuvenated (and financially healthy) Chrysler Group is taking full advantage of the event. Coming off the success of last year's "Imported from Detroit" Superbowl theme, the automaker will officially unveil their latest assault on the extremely important C-segment: the 2013 Dodge Dart.
And without much surprise, photos and a video have just been leaked only a couple of days before its official unveiling. Revealed here in R/T trim, the new Dart's chassis comes courtesy of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, although the former has a longer and wider architecture with a large percentage being constructed of high-strength steel.
Power will come from a range of engines, including the new Tigershark lineup of small displacement engines, such as a 2.0-liter four-banger, a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo, and a 2.4-liter MultiAir. Judging by these photos, it's clear that Dodge invested huge amounts of time and money into the Dart and it looks really solid, both inside and out. We'll have complete details in the coming days from Detroit.
