Although most of us believe that this compact car will end its production soon, there are also rumors that 2018 Dodge Dart could come. This model is in production since 2012. Although it is still pretty fresh, company planned to discontinue it. Main reason for this decision is production of new crossover, which should come soon. New model will be produced in assembly in Illinois. However, this factory doesn’t have enough capacities for production of both models. So, company decided to discontinue not only Dart, but also Chrysler 200. However, latest reports say that production of these two models could be moved to Mexico. However, you should take this with big reserve.
2018 Dodge Dart redesign and features
As we already mentioned, 2018 Dodge Dart could come from Mexico. If company decide to move production, we could also see some novelties. This model is present from 2012, which means that it is about time to see some updates. This could be some kind of mid-cycle refresh. What this refresh could bring, we don’t know. For now, we can only make some predictions. Just it is case with pretty much every mid-cycle refresh, most of the changes are visual nature. The 2018 Dart could come with some new things, when it comes to exterior design. Base shape will remain the same, but we could see some modifications, primarily at the front, where new model can get things like new lights, new bumper etc. At the rear end, expect less changes. When it comes to interior, some smaller modification could come, but nothing so significant.
