2016 Dodge Dart SRT AWD Turbo is on the Way.

May 06, 2014 - 9:13 AM - by cereal killer



Well folks it's finally going to become a reality. The ups, downs, it's coming, it's not coming can finally be put to rest. In the middle of Fiat Chrysler's announcement of their five-year plan a slide popped up and revealed, you guessed it, the Dodge Dart SRT! According to sources at the announcement the 2016 Dart SRT will be a forced induction AWD beast. No word on horsepower or MSRP, but at this point who cares--the Dodge Dart SRT just became a reality.

How will this change the landscape with current Dart owners? Who's going to sell/trade theirs off for The Dodge Dart SRT? Let us know in the comments section.
