I can't speak to that with any certainty. My opinionated guess would be 'yes'. The early rumors had them running all manuals in the initial batch which I believe resulted in the one red Dart SXT per dealer. The early rumors also had them running a batch of all automatics after that initial batch.
My dealer has really seemed to be in the dark about any details with the Darts they've received and more so with my order. He didn't even know about the drive off event last month until I told him about it. Luckily that resulted in me getting a test drive and ultimately placing my order.
