2017 Dodge Dart SRT: (probably) upcoming SRT-4
After the success of the original Dodge Neon SRT4 in establishing street credibility for both the Neon and the SRT brand, the creation of an SRT Dart — a Dodge Dart SRT4, if you will — seems almost a given, especially since Chrysler has already gotten 285 horsepower out of the 2.4 liter engine, even without MultiAir or the new “Tiger Shark” head and intake design. Observers believe the production version will likely produce around 300 horsepower, though SRT might tune for a lower peak horsepower number in order to get stronger torque through a wider engine-speed range.
The above “preliminary sketch” was posted by “NeonGTS” at neons.org.
Allpar reader “m@” caught this Dart-shaped car (below) out on the roads on February 16, 2012; it caught his interest partly because there’s no need for Darts to wear camouflage. (And the car is very well covered.) Based on that, we think it’s likely to be an SRT4 (or SRT Dart) test car.
