The 2013 Dodge Dart and its Tiger Shark Power
Said to be the most technologically advanced compact, the 2013 Dart produced by Dodge gives drivers over 100,00 ways to personalize their driving experience. This spacious midsize sedan rival also leads its class in 60 standard and available safety and security features.
With its diver-centric interior, the Dodge Dart features refined soft touch surfaces, optional accent stitching on the seats and dash, available hand wrapped protein vinyl surfacing and class exclusive storage in the front passenger seat.
The available technological enhancements range from driving features to information, giving owners their own feeling of power. The Dodge Dart offers a 8.4-inch touch screen available on the ST and Rallye white it’s standard on the Limited and GT models. The Uconnect Touch features AM, FM, CD, and MP3 along with SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Drivers can get an up to the minute weather and temperature display, fuel prices, and entertainment listings with Garmin Navigation and SirusXM Travel Link. The option of the Uconnect navigation and media center includes turn-by-turn directions, lane guidance, traffic situations, and travel link for points of interest. There’s also a remote SD card and USB port with mobile device control. Better yet, controls are mounted on the steering wheel for easy access without a driver taking their eyes off the road.
We recently stopped by a local Raleigh dealership, and spoke with Dodge experts at Sport Durst Auto NC. According to the sales manager, the Dart is not only a luxury car, but one based on the ideal driving experience and safety. He walked us thought the three available power trains, including the very impressive 2.4L Tiger Shark Multi Air II Engine. With this source of power the Dart can get up to 41 highway miles per gallon (28 city miles) or 184 lb-ft of torque (Dart Aero). There are also ten standard air bags. Also coming standard are Electronic Stability Controls with Hill start assist, all-speed traction control, four-wheel disc antilock brakes, rear alert breaking, brake support, laminated acoustic windshield, projector headlights, LED stop and turn tail lights, adjustable driver seat, and driver-centric power windows.
Optional features in the Dart SXT, Rallye, Aero, and Limited include remote keyless entry, speed sensitive power door locks, projector fog lights, air conditioning with micron filter, park view rear back up camera, automatic head lights, power heated mirrors with supplemental turn signals, LED interior lighting, tire pressure monitoring display, heated front seats and steering wheel, and HomeLink universal garage door opener.
Whether you’re looking for a luxury vehicle or an advanced car at the head of its class, the Dart provides the ultimately comfortable driving experience while being technologically savvy, simply and safely.
