'13 Mopar Dodge Dart Released Before Chicago Debut
And no under the hood changes, [facepalm]

"Pictures of the interior are not available but Chrysler promises that the Moparized Dart features a blue-stitched steering wheel, sport pedals and a numbered plaque on the dash. It comes standard with numerous high-tech features including an 8.4-inch touch screen and wireless charging for mobile devices.

Mopar has not made any changes under the hood and the '13 Dart is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft. of torque. Also found under the hood of the Fiat 500 Abarth, the MultiAir mill is linked to a six-speed manual transmission.

To create a livelier driving experience, the latest Mopar-designed vehicle comes with a re-calibrated steering system, a lowered and stiffened suspension and upgraded brakes."

This over a Dart GT. Better suspension and brakes and the better engine.

So,it's their version of the Shelby Focus;more of a money grab than actual substance.

I dont mind the design of this. The front ride height looks pretty good for a factory delivered car. Better suspension and upgraded brakes are both pluses. That being said, I'd not consider this as a car I would want to own but they are moving in the right direction.

How many versions of this car is Dodge going to release? Only 160hp, I see a lot of bark and no bite.

I wish this trend of adding a lot of show and no go would fade away. What a waste of money. I rather have an unmarked rocket than a dressed up turd.

Do I need to find pics of Focus-fails?! That happens to every car after they get cheaper and tasteless-douchenozzles can afford the chrome crap, and the rest of APC's inventory!
