As this model was released just recently, no major changes have been made to it yet.
Styles and Major OptionsEdit
Currently, the Dodge Dart only comes in a sedan body style. Despite this, the Dodge Dart comes in five trim levels:
- SE - This is the base model of the Dodge Dart. The SE model features projector headlights, LED backlights, cloth seating, 10 airbags, and a 6-speed manual transmission standard. Unlike most base models of compact cars, the Dodge Dart SE does not include air conditioning as standard equipment.
- SXT - This model includes all of the features of the SE model, plus power mirrors and locks, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and remote keyless entry. The 1.4L Multiair Turbo engine is available on this model, along with the Uconnect Touch Media Center 8.4-inch/RE2.
- Rallye - This model builds on the SXT model by featuring a sporty exterior trim. Some of the components of this sporty trim include a black headlight bezel and grille surround, projector fog lamps, and an integrated dual exhaust. For the interior, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Electronic Vehicle Information Center, trip computer, and steering wheel mounted audio controls are standard.
- Limited - This model focuses on technology, as many bonus technological components are standard. Such components include a 7-inch reconfigurable touch screen, Electronic Vehicle Information Center, trip computer, and steering wheel mounted audio controls. The Uconnect Touch Media Center 8.4-inch/RE2 is an optional upgrade.
- R/T (coming soon) - The R/T model will feature the interior of the Limited model and the exterior of the R/T model, plus a premium Nappa leather-trimmed interior and sport suspension. The 2.4L Tigershark with Multiair II engine is standard.

Engine and TransmissionEdit
The Dart has three engine options: a Tigershark 16-valve 2-liter engine, a "Tigershark" 16-valve 2.4-liter MultiAir 2 four-cylinder engine, and a 16-valve 1.4-liter MultiAir Intercooled turbo engine used also in Alfa Romeo Giulietta. That engine has been retuned for American use (changing the required grade of oil to one widely available in the U.S. and Canada, for example) in the Fiat 500 Abarth The 1.4T Dart also will have more torque than the Abarth. A 6-speedmanual transmission is available with all engine options, a six-speedautomatic is optional on the 2.0 L and 2.4 L engines and a six-speed dual-clutch transmission is available on the 1.4 L turbo unit. Marchionne has stated that a 9-speed automatic will not be available until sometime later. All Dart engines are built in Dundee, Michigan.
In 2014, the Dart SXT and Limited both got a 2.4L I4 engine with increased horsepower ratings, making the 2.0L Tigershark I4 engine only available in the base SE model. The 2.4L I4 engine was offered in late 2013 with the introduction of the Dart GT model. The Dart Aero model is the only model available with the 1.4L MultiAir turbocharged I4 engine.

Dart In Pop CultureEdit
- Dodge released an advertisement for the Dart to show how they created the vehicle.
The 2013 Dodge Dart Aero was among the five finalists for the 2013 Green Car of the Year awarded by Green Car Journal at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
On January 27, 2016, Fiat Chrysler announced that it will end production of the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 due to the company's decision to redirect its energies towards building Crossover vehicles. A plan to move production from its Belvidere Assembly Plant to Mexico was in the works but later scrapped. Another factor was in how the vehicle was reviewed by Consumer Reports and laying blame on the vehicle's designers, along with declining sales.
