    Since announcing that the 2013 Dodge Dart would come with a
    starting price of $15,995 at the car’s debut in Detroit, Dodge has been
    pretty quiet about full pricing or standard features across the trimline range. Well, until now.

    The 2013 Dodge Dart will come in SE, SXT, Rallye, Limited
    and R/T trimlines with the first four arriving this summer and the Road and
    Track trimline arriving in the third quarter of 2012.  As expected, the Dart SE is the least
    expensive of the lineup with starting price of $15,995 while the Dart SXT will
    set you back $17,995.  The sporty Dart
    Rallye carries an MSRP of $18,995 followed by the Dart Limited at $19,995 and
    the highline Dodge Dart R/T will cost $22,495 when it arrives this fall.

    These prices put the new Dodge Dart right in with other
    similar vehicles in the C segment sedan class but what exactly are you getting
    for the money?  Chrysler hasn’t offered
    full details but the pricing announcement did include some of the standard features
    for the five trimlines with full information coming closer to the dealership
    debut of the new model.

    The 2013 Dodge Dart SE is powered by 2.0L Tigershark
    4-cylinder engine, offering 160 horsepower and 148lb-ft of torque with a
    6-speed manual transmission sending power to the front wheels.  Standard features for the entry level Dart
    include 10 air bags, four wheel disc brakes, projection headlights, power
    windows, unique denim style cloth seats with 6 way controls, a basic
    AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system and a 5-year, 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty.

    The 2013 Dodge Dart SXT takes all of the standard features
    of the SE trimline and adds 17 inch aluminum wheels, power mirrors and door
    locks, remote keyless entry, an upgraded sound system with six speakers, an
    alarm system, and an air conditioning system featuring cabin air
    filtration.  Also, unlike the SE package,
    those who opt for the Dart SXT can upgrade to the massive 8.4″ touch screen
    infotainment system that controls the majority of the vehicles interior
    functions as well as being able to add on a sunroof, a backup camera and a 506w
    speaker system for an additional charge.

    The 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye starts with the standard features
    of both the Dart SE and SXT but adds a unique exterior look with black accents
    in the grille and headlight bezels, projection style foglights, dual exhaust
    and optional Hyper Black wheels.  Inside,
    the Dart Rallye offers four unique color packages (Black with Light Diesel
    Grey, Diesel with Light Diesel Grey, Black with Ruby Red or Diesel Grey with
    Citrus Peel) and a leather wrapped steering wheel featuring controls for the
    stereo and cruise control system.  Dart
    Rallye buyers can also stick with the standard 2.0L Tigershark or upgrade to
    the 1.4L MultiAir engine from the Fiat 500 Abarth – packing 160 horsepower and
    184lb-ft of torque.

    The 2013 Dodge Dart Limited also includes the standard
    features of the SE and SXT but the Limited package adds luxury items inside and
    out.  The Limited package begins by
    adding chrome door handles and a unique grille on and outside with the interior
    benefits from the 8.4″ touch screen infotainment center, the 7″ gauge cluster
    and a 10 way power driver’s seat.

    Finally, the 2013 Dodge Dart R/T takes the standard features
    from the Dart Limited and adds gobs of goodies to allow it to fittingly serve
    as the highline Dart package.  Most
    importantly, the Dart R/T is powered by the MultiAir 2.4L Tigershark engine –
    packing 184 horsepower and 171lb-ft of torque. 
    The R/T package then adds an aggressive front fascia, a black grille,
    black headlight bezels and dual exhaust on the outside while the inside
    receives Nappa leather seats, a heated steering wheel and, of course, the
    awesome 8.4″ infotainment screen and the 7″ customizable LED gauge cluster.
