I think if Dodge wanted to they could build an AWD, but like I said before it would be way too expensive, especially if the drive train needs to withstand 300hp/tq+ (desired range). Also I doubt SRT will put their name on anything that can't exceed the performance numbers the vehicle is being marketed at, they know people will mod it and Mopar can supply the parts (more money). For example an AWD car like a 2005 STI was ~ $30k brand new along with the Evo, now that was almost seven years ago. With inflation you can expect the price of a similar type of vehicle today to rise significantly. Your looking at close to $40K and most people aren't going to pay that much because today even a $30k car is still pricey for that particular buyers market. To be a sucess the car will have to be FWD to cut down on costs and at the same time maintain the same level of reliability/performance that the original SRT4 did, all while being relatively affordable.

SRT had better be paying attention to cars like that. That's their competition. Not AWD Ralliarts and WRXs. If that is their market, it had better have the power and gadgets and luxury, otherwise, why wouldn't you buy a WRX for the same money?

On the Focus forums a lot of people were compaling about how Ford would probably heavily mark up the turbocharged Focus ST saying its going to be priced at $30k, run as much as an Evo or STI, etc., but a member actually wrote and got a reply from Alan Mulally (Ford's CEO) who pretty much confirmed what the more realistic people were thinking in that it will start at around $24k and top out near $30 fully loaded. I'm hoping a front drive SRT-4 Dart would be the same. Keep the entry level price $23-25k and offer options if people want to load it up.

I will definitely be looking at an SRT-4 version if it ever comes out. I bet it comes real close to 30K with a bunch of options that can tip it over that mark. Car prices have gone nuts in the past few years. I bought a new Expedition in 2007 that MSRPd at $31k. Optioned the same it would cost me $39k for a 2011. My 2011 Mustang MSRPd north of $37k without navi.

Everything i see says 204-210 hp, and with all the bells and whistles (which i assume a top of the line turbo model would have), will probably weigh in around 2800 (unless they purposely strip it down?). The top of the line automatic veloster already weighs 2800. Stock SRT's weigh just under 2900.

I can see it being a low 14's car out of the box.
Also interested to see what a 3000lb 247hp Focus ST will do by comparison.

Hmmmm, very interesting. I like the car at most angles, but the overall shape of the car in some of the spy shots left a little to be desired for me. I suppose I will have to wait it out and see the real things when it gets released.

And, of course like 99& of you, I am VERY curious to see if/what the SRT version will offer.



Injen intake, 3'' TBE, DSP 93 Tune, Fuel Pump Rewire, BFMIC, Granatelli wires, Mopar Rice Plate, 3 bar sensors, Meth injection. Pretty much stock!!

uhhhhhhhhh again why would they make a1.8 turbo when they STILL HAVE the 2.4t from the caliber in their hands to throw in it?

confirmed dart motors
eco model = 1.8t
base model = 2.0
R/T model = 2.4
SRT model = ? (pssstttt !=! 2.4t lay down your money)

expect 270-300hp from factory for the srt-4

nSRT 4


Holy shit people it's not that hard...

2013 Dodge Dart | Price, release date, specs, pics, concept

The 2013 Dart rides on an Americanized (lengthened and widened) platform adapted from Fiat's well-regarded and high-style European Alfa Romeo Giulietta. Dodge also makes claims about "materials and precision craftsmanship typically found in more expensive vehicle segments" while also highlighting the fact that it will offer "thousands of ways to personalize" the compact model through a choice of 12 exterior colors, 14 interior color and trim combinations, six wheel options, three engine options and three transmissions.


I like, 8.4 inch touchscreen HUD


I like 7 IN dash navigation
Holy hell, who wrote that article, a monkey with a Speak and Spell?

I'm interested to see how the spy shots compare to the live reveal. A 2.4T MultiAir is going to be interesting to tune. Hopefully Dodge makes this an SRT worth saving up for.
