For the 2013 Dodge Dart, Mopar will offer more than 150 accessories, the most in the compact-car segment. The 2013 Dodge Dart GTS 210 Mopar concept car highlights many of these items, currently not available as a factory package. Some observers believe that in addition to showcasing Mopar parts, the Dart GTS may be showing the direction of the assumed-to-be-coming SRT Dart — hopefully to retain the name Dart GTS rather than becoming the “SRT Dart SRT4.”
For the “stage 1” appearance package, matte-black trim pieces are put onto the interior: a lower chin spoiler, side sills, rear spoiler and rear-diffuser panel. Mopar also added a carbon-fiber hood with air scoop, and 18-inch, 10-spoke forged alloy titanium-colored wheels.
Inside, beyond the 14 interior color and trim options available in the 2013 Dodge Dart, Mopar red Katzkin leather seat fronts, door panels, center armrest and map-pocket inserts; black accent stitching is used in the seats and armrest. Piano Black trim is used on the shifter bezel, cup holder bezel and the dash-vent bezels, while the instrument cluster brow is black with red accent stitching; the island bezel is a Piano Black; and the steering wheel is in black leather with red stitching.
The Stage 2 performance modification uses a computer which, along with better airflow on the intake and low back-pressure exhaust, brings the Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute from 184 to to 210 horsepower, a substantial gain.
