    three darts together.JPGAre you in the market for a 2013 Dodge Dart but you wanted something
    other than the red Rallye manual transmission models that hit the dealerships
    as part of the launch program?  If so,
    you may want to head over to your neighborhood Dodge dealership as we have
    received confirmation that more 2013 Darts are hitting dealerships in different
    colors and trimlines than those first offered as part of the nationwide “drive
    away” program.

    When the first batch of 2013 Dodge Dart sedans headed to
    dealerships last month, they were all red Rallye models fitted with the 1.4L
    turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a manual transmission.  These standardized Dart sedans turned off
    some consumers who didn’t want red, didn’t want a Rallye model, didn’t want a
    manual transmission, didn’t want the 1.4L turbo engine or all of the above but
    we have learned that new colors and trimlines are arriving at dealerships around
    the US.  A dealership with whom I spoke
    shortly after the Detroit area drive away program quickly sold their red Rallye
    model and have already gotten another one – this Dart finished in the Maximum
    Steel Metallic Clear Coat.  Upon checking with other dealerships, it seems as though Black and Silver are also available.


    Upon hearing this, I contacted Chrysler and I was informed
    that the Belvidere Assembly Plant is currently building and shipping SE, SXT,
    Rallye and Limited models of the 2013 Dodge Dart in a variety of colors -
    although availability may vary from one dealership to another.  It should be noted that the Darts now
    reaching dealerships are powered by either the 2.0L Tigershark engine or the
    1.4L MultiAir turbo motor – with the 2.0L engine coming with either a manual or
    automatic transmission while the 1.4L turbo motor is still only available with
    the manual.  The new dry dual clutch
    automatic transmission will arrive in the third quarter of this year, along
    with the 2.4L Tigershark-powered Dart R/T and the new Dart Aero.
