Dart R/T gas mileage published

by David Zatz on

Dodge has released the gas mileage for the Dodge Dart R/T, the 184-horsepower, American-engined compact car that tops the Dodge Dart range. The Dart R/T comes with a single engine (and is the only Dart to use that engine), the 2.4 liter World Engine in Tiger Shark form. It now boasts Fiat’s advanced MultiAir II system, which adjusts valve opening for each cylinder individually, making adjustments in real time.

The Dart R/T is rated at 24 city, 34 highway, according to Chrysler, with an automatic transmission — which is better than the 22/32 we had estimated, based largely on the performance of the 2.0 automatic. If this number is accurate, the 2.0 and 2.4 automatic would have the same gas mileage ratings, raising the spectre of an error.

The Dodge Dart R/T automatic uses a Hyundai six-speed automatic; the manual transmission is sourced from Fiat. The 2.0 and 2.4 liter engines are both built in Dundee, Michigan, by Chrysler.

Update, January 8, 2013: the Dodge Dart R/T has been postponed and might be a higher-performance version of the new model, Dodge Dart GT. The Dodge Dart GT comes equipped as the Dart R/T would have, at a $1,200 lower price.
