    Introducing the 2013 Dodge Dart GT






    Here she is folks, the 2013 Dodge Dart GT. Yes you read that correctly, the sporty Dart GT model originally made its debut in 1963 and is being reintroduced under the new Dart platform. What is interesting to note is that this vehicle looks and is packaged exactly like the R/T and this makes us think that the R/T just may never make it onto showroom floors. Another interesting comment in the presser below is the how they touch on the R/T model by saying "Dodge continues to investigate a high-performance R/T model." We don't know how anyone else feels but this sounds to us like it's never coming. Regardless, the GT looks to be an exact replacement and what a beauty she is. Production of the 2013 Dodge Dart GT will begin in the second quarter 2013.

    After reading the full press release below we want to hear from you, could this be the R/T in GT clothing and for those of you who have been waiting on the R/T, are you happy with the vehicle?

    Cheers ResumeSpeed!

    Wow, very interesting...sounds like the R/T but Dodge decided to label it he "GT" as a throwback to the old 1963 Dart...cool. If I were shopping/waiting for the R/T I think I'd be happy with this outcome...

    They are still "investigating" the R/T. I bet its getting a detuned version of whatever engine they are putting in the DSRT.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Could be a lower-powered FWD only DSRT, but as an R/T
