2020 Dodge Dart Price, Specs, Redesign, Release Date – The Dodge Dart has been known for being an affordable sedan you may want to check out if you can’t afford to spend more. In general, this small sedan has a sporty look and its driving impression is pretty impressive. Even so, unfortunately the Dart doesn’t perform and compete as expected, which is probably why the company decided to add a gap in production so the 2019 Dodge Dart isn’t released yet. For the upcoming 2020 Dodge Dart, we can see from the shortcomings to see what the company may improve for a better small sedan to compete in the segment.
2020 Dodge Dart Interior
The first impression of upcoming Dodge Dart is pretty nice, thanks to its dash stitching, colorful trim, and padded surfaces. However, when we pay more attention, there are plenty that go amiss, such as the build quality that is not exactly up to that of the top of the segment, spring for the 8.4-inch touchscreen for infotainment interface, either with or without navigation system, for straightforward menus, easy-to-use knob, and large buttons displayed on the screen. This touchscreen processes quickly too.
While the passenger space is good up front, the oddly shaped front seats make an impression as if they are too high. This results in the less comfortable impression especially among drivers who have long legs, considering how they thus cannot adjust the seat-bottom cushion low enough for maximum comfort. Plus, the 2020 Dodge Dart also has a steering wheel which range is limited in terms of adjustment, which makes it sensible that the drivers cannot position the steering wheel low enough as well.
2020 Dodge Dart Engine
There are three engine options offered for the Dodge Dart 2020. There’s the base 2.0L 4-cylinder engine producing 160 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque for the base Dodge Dart SE model, paired with a 6-speed manual as standard or an 8-speed automatic as an option. Meanwhile, for the Dart Aero and Turbo trims, a turbo 1.4L 4-cylinder engine rated at 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque with a standard 6-speed manual is found under the hood—a 6-speed automated clutch transmission is an option on the Aero trim. The last engine option is standard on the Limited, GT, and SXT: a 2.4L 4-cylinder generating 184 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual (for SXT and GT) or a 6-speed automatic (standard on Limited, optional on SXT and GT).
2020 Dodge Dart Price
Designed and produced as an economic small sedan, the Dodge Dart 2020 is most likely to be sold at MSRP of around $20,000 to $21,000. However, the company still hasn’t released any official statement regarding how much the starting price will be, as well as when the small sedan will be officially released.
The affordable price surely is one factor that makes a great advantage for Dodge Dart. However, when it comes to overall quality and performance, sadly this small sedan still lags behind its competitors. But if you consider buying 2020 Dodge Dart, you may want to consider its rivals too, such as Mazda3 or Kia Forte.
