SRT Dart on hold

Dart SRT4

According to Ralph Gilles, the Dodge Dart SRT4 (or, in the current nomenclature, SRT Dart) is no longer a definite near-term product. Mr. Gilles told us:

Well, we have a lot of oars [in the water] right now, a lot of projects, and things that go from continuous improvement to what to do with the Dart? So I’ll tell you right now, we’ve got a bit of a stall in the Dart development, because our standards are so much higher for ourselves. In the old days, we would have turbo-charge, front-wheel drive engine, boom. But we want something better and more special and right now there’s not a power-train that we’re happy with that is worthy of that nameplate, you know what I mean? Of putting SRT on it. So we’re going to wait until we have the right ingredients.

… If you even remotely like an SRT type of car, the GT is a fantastic offering. I’ve driven the GT. I would say it handles every bit as well as any SRT. As a matter of fact, it’s got that type of handling demeanor to it, so it’s going to make a great catch for an enthusiast who wants a great commuter as well. … [the Dart Rallye 1.4] was a great car too, but the GT, it’s got a little bit more torque. It’s a great handling package, 18” wheels. It’s a really nice package.
