2015 Dodge Dart, every time I hear that name, I remind myself it’s not the original 1960-76 model, but then i realize it’s a great car on it’s own. The 2015 Dodge Dart redesign is expected soon, let’s take a look at the expectations around it. (current model shown)
2015 Dodge Dart chassis, body & exterior redesign:
Sold since may 2012 the new Dart is a nice 4 door sedan on a FWD configuration. 2015 Dodge Dart is expected to carry on the 2014 design elements which form it’s basis for a pepped up new car. The 2015 Dodge Dart facelift is expected with minor changes to the exterior, possibly getting new bumpers, headlamps, fog lamps, wheel styles and read lamps. Addition of new colors is not ruled out either. 2015 Dodge Dart should get new air dam in the front department, along with inserts in the grille to make it more stylish.
The 2015 Dodge Dart lip drop style on front is expected to be pronounced and may carry chrome inserts depending upon trim levels. Overall the same handlebars, ORVMs, pony tail antenna, and scoopless hood are expected making it not a radical but subtle redesign. Time will tell what real changes will be seen though.
2015 Dodge Dart interior and comforts
The interior should see a refresh in terms of 2015 Dodge Dart getting different color tones to the dash and leather/fabric seat finishes. The 8.4 inches available in-car entertainment/nav system in the current model may see an upgrade along with Bluetooth, voice commands, satellite radio and other features depending upon the model and trim. SD cards, iPods, USB drives, and other media (model dependent) can be used to bring the 6 speaker system to life (option for 9+sub speaker system) Digital gauges in the car show you vehicle diagnostics, fuel consumption, navigation aids while allowing you to customize speedometer display.
The leather appointed seats and door panels are a treat with sporty looks. There are black, beige, grey & brown shades that can be expected in different trims. The well built dashboard that is simple yet very functional, may see a more sportier look, not that it is boring in it’s current version. The high tech cockpit is something that a driver will fall in love with, and this is to continue in the new 2015 Dodge Dart.
2015 Dodge Dart Engine/Transmission
The 2015 Dodge Dart engine configurations include the current lineup of the Chrysler 2.0L l4 engine that churns 160 bhp @6400 rpm & 148lb-ft torque @ 4800 rpm. Fiat FIRE 1.4L l4 engine that produces 160 bhp @ 5500 rpm & 184 lb-ft torque @ 2500 rpm. Then there is the Chrysler 2.4L l4 that produces 184 bhp @6250 rpm & 174 lb-ft torque @ 4800 rpm. The 2.0 liter & 2.4 liter tigershark engines are mated to a 6 speed manual/auto Powertech transmission, the Fiat 1.4 is on a 6 speed manual, 6 speed dual dry clutch transmission.
2015 Dodge Dart release date & Price
Current starting price of US $16500 is expected to be maintained for the new 2015 model too. There is no firm indication of a launch date, but it should fall in line with the holiday season. Without any firm announcement by Dodge there are only rumors that the third quarter of this year is an indicative date for this launch.
