Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog .....The article states that the GLH "upgrade would be available across all Dart trim levels with pricing starting at $20k. I'm not quite sure what this means. Let's say there will be 3 trims (SE, SXT & GT) for the new Dart...This implies a GLH package would be available at each level, which seems odd (mainly for a base SE model). One would think GLH would be it's own trim with specific standard equip and a few options. The current Dart SE starts around $16,500 (MSRP)....I would assume the extra $3500 for the GLH package gets you the turbo engine and all the hardware to support it.....nothing more (no tech)
      The reality is that C&D probably knows as much as we do about the Dart GLH. FCA plays things very close to the vest and have released pretty much zero official information publicly regarding the future of the Dart since that last 5 year plan, whenever that was. Only a handful of people likely know for certain what is actually in the works, they aren't going to be talking about it, and those plans are subject to change without anybody every really knowing about it. Dodge has made a number of Dart concepts that were put on display only to promptly disappear, never to be spoken of again. The only one that we even know was functional is the 210 GTS Tribute (there were 2 of them, a manual and an automatic), but after much fanfare it also just disappeared without a word. I will remain skeptical of the very existence of these GLH and SRT models, and any details pertaining to them, until they are available to purchase from a dealership with price tags and spec sheets stuck to them. These cars do not exist yet, and there is nothing at all to suggest that Dodge or FCA have any particular love or vision for the Dart.

      My question is...Why even bother with these concepts then? It seems like a waste of time if they don't plan on implementing any of this stuff in a production model. FCA has yet to do anything serious performance wise with the Dart, yet they keep teasing...why?

      I've wondered that myself. They've put in the R&D, developed performance parts, and then shelved most of them. They've developed at least one 210hp tune for the 2.4L engine (the GTS 210 and Scatpack) and performance suspension and brakes (also scat pack), promised to release them, and then... *POOF* they vanished.

      Don't hold your breath for any sort of performance out of the current Dart. The Hurricane has been delayed another 1-2 years so the GLH package we were all excited for is dead. There is a reason besides the Hurricane delay for all of this as well. Lets just say Dodge will be putting some big boy pants on the Dart when the current version gets replaced.

      I've completely lost track of when the next dart is coming out, refresh or redesign or whatever. Just means the note will likely be paid.
