A preliminary sketch of the upcoming 2014 Dodge Dart SRT4 has surfaced online. No details or specs have been released for the SRT4 yet, but some solid theories can be made on what the SRT team has in store. Given the Dart’s platform is rooted in that of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the SRT is likely to borrow again from the Giulietta Cloverleaf variant for the SRT4. The six-speed, dual-clutch transmission found in the Cloverleaf should be the same on the SRT4.
2014 Dodge Dart SRT4 Release Date and Price
As the competition is getting hot, the company should come up with some new features for this car. For its design, the design is quite impressive but there is still not much information available whether it will come with a new fresh design or not. For its interior, there is no information available. We are not sure whether it will be equipped with more equipment or not. One thing we can ensure is that the new Dodge Dart will offer a better driving experience as it comes with the latest technologies and features.
Since the Ford Focus ST will be the Dodge Dart SRT4’s biggest competitor, pricing should fall in the same $30,000 range.
Powertrain 2014 Dodge Dart SRT4
The last-generation Caliber SRT4 made 285 hp and 265 lb-ft from a turbo 2.4-liter, so for the return of the SRT4, expect no less. The all-aluminum, direct-injection, 300-hp four-cylinder engine that should arrive in the long-awaited Alfa Romeo 4C could be a perfect, though expensive, fit. A turbocharged and intercooled larger displacement version of the Dart’s Tigershark 2.0-liter might be a better option.
We don’t expect the 2014 Dodge Dart’s fuel economy ratings to change from their 2013 model-year estimates. That means a Dart fitted with the base 2.0-liter engine will probably be rated at 25/36/29 mpg city/highway/combined with the six-speed manual transmission and 24/27/34 with the six-speed automatic.
With the available 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine the Dart should again be rated at 27/39/32 with the manual and 27/37/31 with the dual-clutch automatic; while use of regular-grade gas is acceptable with this engine, Dodge recommends premium-grade fuel for optimal performance.
2014 Dodge Dart SRT4 Exterior and Interior
On the chassis and aerodynamics side, expect SRT engineers to apply the same race logic they have across the Chrysler/Dodge line. The Dart SRT4 will have all manner of functional scoops and vents, an aggressive rear deck spoiler, and vertigo-inducing handling, thanks to stiffer springs and dampers, larger wheels, and upgraded rubber.
2014 Dodge Dart SRT4 is expected to have some major changes and other improvements compared with its predecessor, 2013 Dodge Dart. After the release of 2013 Dodge Dart, many automobile lovers will expect that the successor of this series will receive some major upgrades in all aspects. Ralph Giles and his SRT team claim that the next successor will offer a major makeover. It seems that the next model will share the same characteristic just like Alfa Romeo Giulietta. It means that we can expect an upgraded version of Alfa Romeo Giulietta. For its performance, we can ensure that the new Dodge Dart will receive a more powerful engine.
