Chrysler has released a teaser of yet another special-edition from Mopar, Chrysler’s service parts and performance accessories division. This tuned 2013 Dodge Dart is set to make its official debut at the Chicago Auto Show but Chrysler was only so generous as to tease the customized compact car before then.
From this single teaser image, we get a glimpse of its interior. We see that the two front buckets are leather trimmed and feature Mopar emblems embroidered into the seat backs. The driver’s seat uses bright blue leather while other seats have black leather trimming and are accented with blue stitching and inserts.
We don’t yet get to see what its exterior looks like but it’s believed that this special edition model will have black exterior paint and an offset blue stripe that runs along the length of the car just like the other Mopar special edition models (the Mopar ‘10 Challenger, the Mopar ‘11 Charger, and the Mopar ’12 Chrysler 300). The new Dart is expected to also have dark painted/tinted aluminum wheels, blacked-out trim accents, and unique badging.
Information about the powertrain hasn’t been divulged yet but it’s likely that this Mopar ’13 Dart will use either the turbocharged 1.4-liter Multiair I-4 or the Dart GT’s bigger Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder. What we shouldn’t expect is that this Mopar model will have a much higher power output than the “stock” Dart variants.
