Ever since the Dodge Dart compact sedan has been officially unveiled at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, rumors and speculations about a sportier model have started circulating. The carmaker hesitated for a long period of time and it finally seems that the last preparations have been made, the Dodge Dart SRT4 will hit the market as a 2017 model. The successor of the mighty Neon SRT4 is almost ready to go on sale. The vehicle is scheduled to go on sale in late 2016. The 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 will come with many novelties. It will probably be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder drivetrain, it will come with a great number of visual updates inside and outside and it will be offered with all-wheel-drive configuration. Even though many things about the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 are still pretty unclear, it is time to find out what else it has to offer.
2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 Exterior
Naturally, the sportier Dodge Dart SRT4 will be much different from the regular model. It will sport a great number of features that clearly witness that it is a sports car model. Just like its regular Dart sibling, the SRT4 will borrow some of the design cues of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The upcoming Dart SRT4 will have meaner appearance including a set of newly designed wheels, functional vents and scoops, and menacing rear deck spoiler. This model will also have stiffer dampers and springs. Also new will be a pair of upgraded, more aggressive bumpers. It won’t be that hard to distinguish it by all its unique styling cues, which do not only have an aesthetic purpose, they’re also functional. LED and Xenon lights will be offered.
Interior of 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4
Not a single photo of the Dodge Dart SRT4’s interior has been released. At this point, it is hard to say what kind of changes we can expect to see inside of the cabin. Judging by other new models and popular trends, we assume that there will be some upgrades in terms of materials. We also anticipate a great number of technological features to find their place inside of the cabin.
Dodge Dart SRT4 2017 Engine
One of the major problems for the carmaker was to find a proper engine for the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 and it seems that it is still facing some difficulties with this part. The engine for the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 hasn’t been confirmed yet. Allegedly, but just allegedly, the newcomer will be powered by a 2.0-liter engine with the maximum capacity of 285 hp. Since the carmaker hasn’t confirmed anything yet, we will take some other engines into account. One of the assumptions is a 2.4-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine which is capable of producing 285 ponies and 265 pound-feet of torque. The engine which the carmaker decides to place under the bonnet of the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 will be teamed up with a manual transmission.
