If you look at Dodge’s current lineup, there aren’t many models in the lineup. The company definitely needs to renew its offer, so we expect to see some interesting novelties in the future. One of the models that might come back is 2021 Dodge Dart. The small sedan has been in production for no more than several years, but our insiders suggest the company would use this nameplate again. At this point, it’s hard to say in which form the new model will come. There is a big chance to see a small sedan once again, but we could see it in the form of crossover as well.
2021 Dodge Dart Design
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the overall design. As we’ve just mentioned, there are two possibilities in terms of body style. The first option is to see a familiar layout, a compact sedan. The other option is to see a crossover, as these types of vehicles are far more popular these days. In any case, we presume that the new model would adopt a completely new platform. Instead of the Compact Wide platform, we presume the new model would ride on a much more advanced Giorgio platform.
This means significantly improved ride quality, especially in terms of performances and efficiency. Also, this means a huge change in terms of the base layout, considering that the new 2021 Dodge Dart would feature a rear-wheel-drive design.
Exterior and Interior
When it comes to the exterior, things are a little bit tricky. Simply, we haven’t seen anything new from Dodge in a pretty long time, so it’s hard to find a reference in terms of aesthetics, considering that there is no such thing as a modern design language in the case of this car brand. Therefore, we count on something new, on a new aesthetical approach, though it’s hard to presume in which direction the new model would go. On the other side, we count on a similar size. The new model should remain in the compact class, whether we are talking about a sedan or a crossover.
The same thing goes with the crossover. Dodge has never been famous in terms of interior quality, but things may change in the near future. We definitely count on the much better interior quality in the new model. Besides finer materials, we are hoping for new aesthetics as well. This particularly refers to the dashboard design, which should look more stylish and come with loads of new tech goodies. In terms of legroom, things shouldn’t change drastically compared to the previous generation.
2021 Dodge Dart Engine
In terms of the powertrain, the 2021 Dodge Dart might go a little bit upscale compared to the previous model. Obviously, a rear-wheel-drive would bring improvements in terms of performances, but such layout would also need something peppier. Therefore, we don’t expect that a 2.4-liter unit. Base models should rather come with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which comes in a couple of output versions, where the most powerful variant delivers around 270 horsepower.
Of course, we could also see some performance-oriented version, equipped with something even more powerful. It’s no secret that FCA is working on a new turbo inline-six engine, and one of the versions could find the place under the hood of 2021 Dodge Dart as well.
2021 Dodge Dart Release Date and Price
We are still waiting to hear something from the officials, but the latest reports suggest the new model could arrive already in the next year. We presume that base models would go around 25.000 dollars.
