the Alfa Romeo Giulietta has three diesel engines available so not sure Dodge even needs to do one, they can just take one of those if neededIf they want to sell the Dart in export markets , they will need to fit a Diesel engine , like they did with the Caliber , Avenger & Jeep Patriot. However even this is no gurantee of sales success abroad.Dodge is dead in UK & available Chryslers are just rebaged Lancia / Fiats !!
I'm pretty sure the Dart is for North America onlyIf they want to sell the Dart in export markets , they will need to fit a Diesel engine , like they did with the Caliber , Avenger & Jeep Patriot.

I am thinking that if the Giulietta is for sale in a market, the Dart won't be.the Alfa Romeo Giulietta has three diesel engines available so not sure Dodge even needs to do one, they can just take one of those if needed
Theres no chance that there will ever be an SRT8 Dart.69swinger, I agree id love to see an srt8. A deisel would be interesting for the car but do you really think they would sell many of them to make it worth their while. or even worth their while to offer it in america? and I really hope they make an srt8 most people you talk to about the car said that if it does come out which noone is "sure" than it wont be on time release with the rest of the darts.
Tip Tronic, Why is it you dont think their will be an RT they make an RT in just about every car they offer an SRT dont they?
Also Does anybody know what car the 2.4 Tigershark engine was in? I was told it is in other cars prior but nobody can tell me which exactly. and does anybody no any thing about the Multiair 2?? Is that like a twin turbo or what? What makes it different from the original Multiair????
Ralph has gone on record to say that they would be "idiots" to not do something with it.Yes that is off the website, but do you really think that dodge will go without making an SRT version of their newest car. especially if the Dart is going to target the sales of the other compact cars such as the Ford Focus?? if Ford is going to offer the Focus ST than Dodge would be stupid to try and nab those sales too by passing up the SRT. I'm sure Dodge has realized and is taking advancments to take the sales of those cars too.
I doubt a pentastar will fitWho knows with them. If they do it probably won't be for a couple of years and maybe put the Pentastar in it.
Keep us posted. i heard that finding a trans for it was going to be a challenge.Speaking of the SRT i found out my brother's Friend's Dad is high up in the SRT division... And He said "unofficially" that SRT is working on a SRT4 Dart, Unfortunately no word yet on when it will be released. However as of right now the RT is well put together, word on the street developers are already working on computers and ways to reprogram the cars preformance... It is supposed to be pretty quick already, just goes to show us car guys always want to be one step of the public
The Dart is the new compact Dodge, like it was in the past. There were few Hemi Darts made.not all mopars have to be muscle cars but if they call it a dart it has to be !!! why not make it the new neon it has no history as a classic hot rod .
