Here 'ya go! Finally, an American-built small Dodge worthy to replace the Neon (or, as I would like to think of it, a "3GN Neon" :lol: ). Let's hope for a Dart SRT-4!

*psssst* Hey David...if you go and click the edit button on your original post and look down towards the bottom of the page, you will see some options for what kind of post you want it to be. Click sticky, submit, and done :D
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

If I lived as close to Detroit as you, I would be! Hell, it's a lot shorter than your annual trip to Carlisle.

Speaking of Carlisle, with the size of the Neon community that attends, this car will get HUGE amounts of attention if they can get one there.

Should look like this, unless the ability to sticky is just a Moderator thing.

Which is what I suspect. I don't recall those options before Dante set me up for this job. :rofl:

Dodge might have teased us with a few images and some initial powertrain details on the 2013 Dart, but Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has provided even more in an interview with Reuters.

According to Marchionne, the Dart is one piece of a larger puzzle for Chrysler in 2013, and the all-new Dart – based off a widened and stretched Alfa Romeo Giulietta – will hit 40 mpg thanks to a host of new engines and transmissions.

As previously reported, the turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir fitted to the Fiat 500 Abarth will grace the top of the Dart range, but Dodge also plans to fit modified versions of the 2.0 and 2.4-liter World Gas Engine, comically rebranded as the Tigershark.

When the Dart debuts, a Fiat-sourced six-speed dual-clutch transmission will feed the front wheels, but later in 2013 Dodge will reportedly offer a nine-speed automatic gearbox supplied by the ZF Group and manufactured in South Carolina. ZF officials claim fuel economy will be boosted between 10 to 16 percent over the dual-clutch 'box, and that should put it handily in the 40 mpg range.

And that last bit is important, as Fiat will receive its final five percent of Chrysler stock from the feds when it produces a vehicle with a 40-mpg rating.

I'm seriously thinking of skipping the Indianapolis Auto Show this month and taking time off in January to drive to Detroit.

I'm feeling pretty much the way I did in early 1994 when I ordered my first Neon. I don't have any money to buy a new car (and no reason since I have a company vehicle) but, now that the Dart is coming out, should I have the need to buy a new Dodge, there is something to fill that niche for me.
