2016 Dodge Dart SRT4 release date,specs & price- Originally, the Dodge Dart was one of the Dodge’s famous models built from 1960 to 1976. The production was cancelled that year in North America, but the production continued in other markets in later years. Initially in 1957, the Dodge Dart was intended to be a full sized car and it was marketed and manufactured as such from 1960 until 1961, when the idea concept had changed and it had become a mid sized car.

The name Dart hadn’t been used until 2012, when the Dart brand was reintroduced to the public at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The model was manufactured from 2013 and is still present on the market, waiting for a refreshment in the form of 2016 Dodge Dart SRT and 2016 Dodge Dart SRT4.
2016 Dodge Dart SRT Exterior
The radical design of the new 2016 Dodge Dart SRT is easily spotted. The car now features the front grille positioned lower than before, with dual kidney like air intake openings positioned above the front grille. The headlights are now slightly sharper and tiny bit more aggressive in design, like an angry eye of a beast.
The air intake on the hood contributes to better air circulation when cooling the powerful engine hidden behind the hood. The back of the car features taillights that are connected and are stretching across the entire trunk lid. Dual exhaust pipes are positioned at the bottom of the rear bumper.

Everything you need regarding accessability is located on the central computer and LCD touchscreen, with only basic physical switches on the sides of the steering wheel and above the shifter.

The platform features aluminum base panels for weight reduction, to allow for better sport capabilities. The engine featured in the new Dart SRT will be quite more powerful unit, compared to the regular Dodge Dart. It will feature a 2.4 liter turbocharged inline 4 cylinder engine – the same engine found in the Caliber SRT4, but slightly modified.
The engine is capable of delivering 300 horsepower and 300 lb ft, which is a remarkable result, especially given the fact that the engine features only 4 cylinders. The version of the engine found in the SRT4 is the same 2.4 liter, with slightly less firepower – 285 horses, but higher torque output of around 365 lb ft. The new Dodge Dart SRT will feature all wheel drive option, as well.
