Base Versus Loaded: 2013 Dodge Dart

By Brandon Turkus

March 16, 2012

It’s still a little bit early, but a pre-production configurator has showed up for Dodge’s newest small car. The Alfa Romeo-based Dart is set to arrive in dealers near the beginning of summer (we’ll actually be driving it in April), and should deliver some stiff competition for cars like the Ford Focus and Chevrolet Cruze.
It’s important to note that this is an early configurator. The prices and options we list could very well change by the time Darts start arriving in dealerships. Also, the destination price has been approximated from other Dodge products.
Price: $17,000 (Dodge Dart SE 2.0) + $900 (Destination) + $0 (Options) = $17,900
Price: $23,500 (Dodge Dart R/T 2.4) + $900 (Destination) + $6250 (Options) = $29,750
