Chrysler has announced that it expects its all-new 2013 Dodge Dart compact sedan to get up to 41 mpg on the highway. The 2013 Dodge Dart will be available with three different powertrains, with the “Aero” model getting the highest fuel economy rating on the highway.
The standard Dodge Dart will get an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, but if Dart buyers want even more, the new Aero package for the 1.4L turbocharged Dart will increase that number to 41 mpg on the highway. Since the Aero package is available with the 1.4L turbo engine, that means Dart drivers will get to also get to enjoy 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft. of torque. Chrysler hasn’t announced the pricing for the Aero package that will be available in the third quarter of this year.
“The all-new Dodge Dart is a groundbreaking car that will surprise and delight customers who want a no-compromise, fun-to-drive car that’s a great value,” said Reid Bigland, President and Chief Executive Officer – Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “With 12 exterior colors, 14 interior color and trim options, three powerful, fuel-efficient engines, three transmission choices, unsurpassed safety features and world-class aerodynamics, the new Dodge Dart sets a new standard for the compact car class.”
