Does anyone have any info regarding 2014 Dodge Dart ordering? Salespro? I've been wondering if there are any significant changes regarding transmission, 2.4 in the SXT, etc. Any information will be appreciated.

Would you believe that the Dart is the only Dodge product that cannot yet be ordered as a 2014... Makes ya wonder.... As of yet I cannot confirm any changes. Perhaps some of our Chrysler insiders can shed some light onto this.

Dart was canceled in favor of its replacement, Lawn Dart. Lawn Dart runs on grass and can be pretty deadly.

No new features really, pretty much same as 2013 models in that regard, was told that the 2.4L will become Standard on the SXT, Limited and GT. There will be equipment/package group changes (to simplify ordering) but haven't seen the details on those. SE base model will stay at $15,995, Limited base MSRP will be increased but adds a lot more Standard features. Rallye option will add touring suspension, projector fog lamps and some other stuff.

Interesting. 2.0 for SE? 1.4 still optional for SXT/Limited and standard on aero?

Yes, 2.0 for SE (exclusively). The 1.4L will be available only on the Aero (standard).
Again, HUGE news! Thanks oh2o for the scoop!

Thanks for the info O. Any idea when ordering will open up? I hope they up the ante on incentives if there are that many changes to the '14. Personally, I was kind of waiting on the '14 with the idea of a 2.4 with a six speed manual or a 9 speed automatic.

That's a big change.
Any news on the 9-speed yet?

2.4L + nine speed = increased sales, no? I am impressed how fast they are reacting. Hopefully the nine-speed will come sooner than later. Although, for us the 2.0L is performing just fine. Will be interesting how much the 9-speed will help the 2.4L with gas mileage.

No word on the 9-speed, don't believe you will see it anytime soon.

Production starts end of September so order banks *should* open September 11th.

I was hoping somehow it would get a horsepower boost.

So, there will be no 1.4L on the other trims above SE/Aero, just the 2.4L across the board or am I reading it wrong?

if so, i'm glad I chose the 1.4L more now. lol

I think he's going to end up being a very rarely-optioned car at this point.
1.4L Turbo / Manual / Limited / Black Premium Leather / BlueStreak (which I heard was being discontinued?)

Unless they're going to retune it for MPG, and less performance perhaps? or maybe just because the 2.4L is a better match for the Dart than the little 1.4L ?

That said, I love mine. lol

Suz, I think our Darts are staying in our possession until they rust into pieces!
