    This isn't the refresh, which will be the 2017 Dart. People seem to get confused between calendar year and model year. FCA's 5 year plan was using calendar years, and the "new" Dart was scheduled for mid-2016, with the SRT scheduled for end of 2016. The Dart model year 2016 is going into production in July 2015. It's basically the same as 2015, but with a new GT hood (allegedly). It's also weird that they're adding the Rallye appearance package to the base model SE.

    I really hope its the vented option, or I've been waiting all this time for nothing lol

    It makes a lot of sense to me to make the rallye appearance package standard on SE. It's a great looking package and will be more appealing with black front appliqué, dual exhaust, etc

    The Dart SE is all about pure value, which is why it has traditionally had almost zero options. I guess it's an option that will appeal to those who want an inexpensive car with the Rallye look.

    Rallye looks a ton better anyway, I think it should be the standard option

    Anyone have the price of the optional GT Performance Hood on the Rallye or Blacktop SXT yet? And no love for the Aero (make that hood work with the turbo please) and the Limited? :sadwalk:

    you all should read allpar more often. they are stating all new 2.0 turbo line up with the GT being replaced with a possible RT badge, Aero being replaced with a SE with 2.0t option. the huricane soinds pretty stout being a twin turbo set up.

    Oh great. Just another new option to make it look even faster than it's not.

    That would be 2017 model year...not 2016.

Hurricane engines and 9-speed automatics are for sure a go as well as a new 6-speed manual offering. AWD will be offered on the SRT model but not on the regular lineup. They still do not want the Dart and 200 to cross paths in the showroom with offering an AWD model for their everyday models. Completely revised interior. Its going to be a lot more drastic than the 2001-2014 Charger interior compared to the 2015 Charger. All new wheel designs. GT model might be discontinued for the R/T model to align the models to the other Dodge lineup. Aero model might be dropped as well for an SE with a Hurricane 2.0 9-speed automatic with active grille shutters."
    You're confusing model year with calendar year. He was talking calendar year. We won't see the update till next year.

    No new engine until that time either.
