    Since the Dart is getting a refresh before the SRT lands, I think its gonna look a lot different.

    Let me tell you again that you can't trust, in the Automotive Industry and at Chrysler, plans will change from one day to another.

    The Dart SRT isn't news, we knew it, there were some projects that were freezed, but after seeing how bad the Dart is doing, they took many projects out from the freezer, besides that, the car will have more than cosmetic changes real soon.

    Some even said that a V6 was almost impossible for the Dart, but let me tell you that nothing is impossible, it just goes to goverment regulations, Chrysler must increase their MPG, so that means that some projects will continue and others will be new, but we will meet in time what the goverment wants us to do.

    There is a lot to do, BTW, my advice, go and buy a 300 SRT it might become a collectors car.

    Random thought; they didn't say that it was going to be a 4-banger turbo.. just a turbo HO AWD..

    looks the same, but doesn't have any of the "under the skin" goodies that the SRT has.

    He seemed a little off in that interview - likely already knowing the changes in store for SRT

    which at the time of the article/interview "right now" as in the minutes that the interview took place; doesn't mean they weren't in testing or planned for. They were probably just deciding whether it should go into a Dart or not, imo. I think there was still some discussion going on behind the scenes as to an avenger replacement, and whether or not that was still on the table.


    I just hope we get to see some design-study-concepts before '16. lol

    No, please no. Not in the Dart. A twin turbo AWD in the Charger? Absolutely.

    Australian sales mean diddly in the States.
    You're probably right, which is unfortunate. That's a car that just BEGS for a manual.

    As of now, if it's auto, I'm out. Of course that could very easily change with one spin behind the wheel...

    Is the Dart's drivetrain not the same as the 200's with the AWD option?

    Im ok with the DSRT having the 9 speed. I would like a manual but I'm not going to complain. Im pretty sure we have already confirmed that the V6 will "fit" in the Dart but it will never pass crash testing. The new Journey replacement SRT might be able to fit a turbo V6 though. I am willing to bet that they will share the same powertrain to spread costs out and keep the price of entry down. I'm gonna say 2.0/2.4 with a twin scroll turbo making at least 300 hp mated to the 9 speed with 6mt optional on the DSRT.

    Australian car sales mean little to this discussion

    WRX has struggling a bit here in the US and EVO is dead. This has been discussed previously and sales data backs it up.

    And it has much much much less horsepower ;)

    Something like that...

    Ah ok, I mistook you. Sorry.

    I'm personally not interested in a Journey, SRT or otherwise. I just don't see the point...

    Yes he said so, but as I told you, there are a few projects that went into the freezer, sudenly a change in plans gives life back to the project.

    There are some plans that no longer have a chance and others that are back and coming strong, Chrysler as you may well know, is very active when it comes to such projects, remember, we are MOPAR
