The 2017 Dodge Dart SRT will be released in December 2016, which is only six months after the 2016 model release. The new SRT will bring many innovations, such as more modern appearance, high-quality materials, long list of gadgets and applications and an impressive powertrain. The new model will be powered by an inline-four turbocharged engine, even though the name SRT, borrowed from Caliber SRT4 for example, will lose the suffix 4. The new model’s powertrain should be at least as powerful as the latter’s meaning that the new model will have at least 285 horsepower and 265lb-ft of torque. These are the figures for the Caliber SRT4, but some sources claim that the 2017 Dart SRT will have an upgraded version of this unit. In addition, the performance of the vehicle will be improved by using an all-wheel drive and a new improved suspension. Even though not all the details of the new redesign have been announced, we are sure that the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT will impress many true car enthusiasts.
2017 Dodge Dart SRT Exterior
Like we said before, the details about the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT are still kept a secret, but there are some leaks and speculations. The new model will keep the basic lines of the exterior similar to the ones on the current model, while certain details will be borrowed from the Caliber SRT. The new model will have a slightly reshaped body which will provide better aerodynamics. In addition, the new Dart SRT will feature many sport details, such as lowered center of gravity, big air intakes, fierce and dominant headlights and an overall feel of the vehicle as a powerful and aggressive machine it is. As for the interior, expect a comfy cabin with sporty seats with supportive bolsters and a lot of high-tech equipment to help you make the most out of the experience.
Possible Powertrain Of 2017 Dodge Dart SRT
The powertrain of the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT is still unknown, however, there are many rumors regarding this topic. Some of the more reliable one say that the new model will use a turbocharged 2.4-liter inline-four engine that the current Caliber SRT is using. This unit generates 285 horsepower and 265lb-ft of torque. It is expected that this engine will be upgraded before installing it in the new Dart SRT, so the new vehicle should have at least 300 horsepower and 300lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Dart SRT and Caliber SRT will part ways when it comes to drive modes. The new model will, unlike the Caliber, use an all-wheel drive which will give it a big advantage compared to the Caliber and other competition. In addition, the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT will have a new improved suspension, especially designed for it, and a manual gearbox. This is not official information, though, so take that into account.

Another two Dodge’s models, the Charger and Challenger will be replaced with new, upgraded models in 2018.
