Ever since the company unveiled the Dodge Dart compact sedan at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, there have been rumors about a sportier model. Finally, Dodge have made the last preparations and we’ll see the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 hit the streets in no time.

The Dodge Dart SRT4 will feature many novelties. It will comes with many visual updates outside and inside as well and it will be an AWD. Naturally, many things about the Dodge Dart SRT4 are still unclear but, we’ll soon find out what it has to offer.

Dodge Dart SRT4As this is the sportier version, it is normal to be quite different from the regular model. Rumor has it that the company will borrow some of the design cues of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The appearance of the SRT4 will be meaner and it will include functional vents and scoops, newly designed wheels and menacing rear deck spoiler. This model will also features stiffer springs and dampers. All in all, let’s just say that it won’t be that hard to distinguish it from all the others.

Dodge Dart SRT4At this point, it’s hard to say what kind of changes we are to expect as no official photo has been released of the Dart SRT4 interior. We assume that there will be some upgrades in terms of material and maybe some new technological features.

Dodge Dart SRT4 engine

We’ve heard that the company had some difficulties finding a proper engine for this particular vehicle. It seems that it is still facing some problems regarding this issue. For all we know, a 2.0-liter engine that puts out 285 hp will power the Dart. However, the car-maker hasn’t confirmed anything yet. Also, there were assumptions that we’ll see a 2.4-liter engine putting out 285 hp and 265 pound-feet of torque. Nevertheless, nobody can say for sure.

We’re expecting to see the SRT4 going on sale in the first months of 2017. The starting prize for it will probably be $30,000.
