One of the most popular hot sedans in the United States is most definitely the Dodge Dart SRT4. However, the current model is not living up to the fame of its predecessor and the manufacturer has decided it is time for an upgrade worthy of the name. Few weeks ago, Dodge has announced that they are preparing to soon unveil the all-new 2016 Dodge Dart SRT4. Furthermore, they have also stated that the next generation Dart will have the same platform, but it will have a completely new engine and transmission.
The 2016 Dodge Dart SRT4 redesign of the exterior will, most probably, be fairly similar to the design of the current model and there isn’t a lot of room to improve or change anything drastically. However, the US manufacturer will definitely want to make this model different than its predecessor, so it is safe to expect that there are going to be some changes done to some of the details of the exterior. On the front of the car, Dodge will most probably use a whole another design for the headlights and the grille (headlights will most probably keep their shape, but the position of interior elements will definitely be changed). Furthermore, the back of the car will get new taillights, new bumper and different exhaust tips. These might not be the only differences between the Dodge Dart SRT4 2016 and its predecessor, because it is possible that the manufacturer could decide to offer the newer model in different color options and newly designed alloy wheels.
Dodge Dart SRT4 2016 Interior, Redesign
The folks at Dodge didn’t say anything about the 2016 Dodge Dart SRT4 interior and whether it is going to keep the current design or they will use something completely new. One of the biggest complaints that the customers had for the current model was the boring interior. Because of this, the manufacturer might decide to borrow whole interior from another, more expensive model. Some reports suggested that the new Charger might be the car which is going to borrow the interior, but there are no official images of the interior to confirm this. If the interior of the 2016 Dart is going to be the one from the Charger, then we can expect to see the popular three spoke steering wheel, along with the large touch screen display (used for controlling of the infotainment system and satellite navigation) and the black leather with red stitching.
2016 Dodge Dart SRT4 Engine, Specs, 0-60
The most important part of the Dodge Dart SRT4 2016 is the engine. The current model was a disappointment to the buyers and Dodge now has to make up for this with a new engine. The new engine will most likely be 2.4l inline-4 turbocharged engine, that should produce around 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque, which is going to be paired with a new nine speed automatic transmission. The new Dodge Dart SRT4 should go from 0 to 60 in less than 6 seconds.
2016 Dodge Dart SRT4 Release date and Price
The new Dodge Dart SRT4 2016 should go on sale by the end of 2016. The price for the base Dart SRT4 should be around $30,000.
