The Dart Story: Fuel Economy
Published Thursday, 03 May, 2012 by Kayla Bauer.
The first numbers are out, and the 2013 Dodge Dart is already shaping up as world-class contender in fuel economy. Here are the recently announced EPA fuel economy ratings for several of Dart s state-of-the-art powertrain combinations:
The all-new 2.0L Tigershark engine combined with the all-new six-speed manual transmission brings new levels of fuel efficiency and performance to Dart. Recently receiving an EPA fuel economy rating of 25 mpg (miles per gallon) in city driving, 36 mpg on the highway and a combined rating of 29 mpg, the all-new Dodge Dart is capable of offering impressive savings at the pump. And with 160 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque, unlike much of its competition, the all-new Dart delivers fuel efficiency without compromising performance.
For added performance and dramatic increase in torque, Dodge has taken fuel efficiency to a whole new level with Fiat s award-winning 1.4-liter MulitAir Turbo Intercooled engine. With an EPA rating at 27 mpg City, 39 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission the all-new Dart provides the ultimate combination of power and fuel efficiency.
Dodge will also introduce a Dodge Dart Aero model (available in the third quarter of 2012) that will achieve at least 41 mpg on the highway. Stay tuned!
