New Dart Blacktops coming

by David Zatz on

Dodge is adding its Blacktop packages to the 2014 Dodge Dart; there are already Blacktop packages for Charger, Challenger, Avenger, Journey, and even Grand Caravan. It will debut at next week’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Dodge Blacktop vehicles add unique gloss black wheels and painted split-crosshair grilles with matching grille surrounds, darkened headlamp bezels, and some interior touches and special paint colors. The Dart package will arrive at dealers by March 2014.

Based on the 2014 Dart SXT Rallye, the Blacktop package adds gloss black mirrors and 18-inch gloss black aluminum wheels. The Rallye group already has a gloss black mask and split crosshair grille, dark-tinted projector headlamps, projector fog lamps, integrated dual exhaust, LED racetrack tail lamps, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Bluetooth. Dodge Dart Blacktop will be available in Redline Red, Header Orange, Blue Streak, Granite Crystal Metallic, Billet Silver, Pitch Black, and Bright White.

Interior details are a black/red premium cloth interior with red accent stitching on the instrument panel brow, center console, and seat bolsters; along with dual red accent stripes on the front seats and accents in the door trim panels. A black/light gray cloth interior is also available.

Standard SXT options are also available, including the Sun and Sound Group, which features a power express open/close sunroof, nine Alpine speakers with subwoofer, 506-watt amplifier, Uconnect 8.4 touchscreen radio, iPod control, satellite radio, rear backup camera, illuminated instrument panel surround, navigation and the cold weather group, which includes heated exterior mirrors, heated front premium cloth seats, tire-pressure monitoring display and remote start (with automatic transmission).

The Dart Blacktop package is just $295 more than the SXT with Rallye group.
