Supposedly from what I hear the SRT variant will be called the "Demon" But come on, "Its just a Dart"

DO NOT START THAT CRAP ALREADY! THE THING ISNT EVEN BEING PRODUCED YET! :twisted:

The 2013 Dodge Dart will be powered by three fuel-efficient, powerful, state-of-the-art four-cylinder engines that add to Dart’s fun-to-drive quotient.

If so, I know what i'm trading Serenity for.

Hope so, as of now, not too interested. The R/t will have the 2.4 NA Tigershark motor. 185hp. Supposedly from what I hear the SRT variant will be called the "Demon" But come on, "Its just a Dart"

Exactly, I'm pretty disappointed to see Dart and economy 4 cylinder in the same sentence.

I'm sorry but I'd be creaming myself and wanting to go buy one if it was RWD with a fkn beast Hemi in it or something.

The Demon fastback was renamed Dart Sport in response to Christian groups' complaints about the 'Demon' name and devil-with-pitchfork logo.

I think this change is the bast will keep them from using the name demon again.

Fiat/Chrysler Group already has plans for that market segment, I'm sure. They want to get rid of the Daimler remainders ASAP in favor of new, superior product.

^^My parents toured Belvidere during a Chrysler stockholders meeting back in the 80's and were very impressed. Somewhere in a box, my mother still has photos my dad took of Omni and Horizon bodies suspended overhead on the assembly lines. They do have a history of building quality vehicles.

:shock: I have a friend who has a 2008 Challenger SRT8 (numbered #5XX from the first year) with the automatic, and I'm very impressed with it. Don't understand why anyone wouldn't
like to own one, unless they were a diehard Mustang or Camarro fan.

EWWWW Mustangs and Camaros.... Dont get me wrong looks the Challenger is a sexy beast I was just expecting the performance aspect to be a little better. Is it a very well rounded car and offers an amazing compromise between comfort and performance yes if your looking for just all out balls to wall muscle well then stock this isnt the car for you
