Why can't anyone grasp that in the 2017 model year there will be big changes coming to the Dart and 2017 model year happens in 2016? Is it really that hard to understand??? Nothing was ever supposed to happen in the 2016 model year.sooo they are pushing back the real performance darts till? looks like ST for me afterall.
You'd think that people who are into cars would understand the difference between model year and calendar year, and be able to tell which is which based on context, especially since it's probably been this way for longer than most people have been alive. My 12-year-old daughter gets it. Even my "cars should be cheap and practical and who cares about fun" wife understands this. Legally, in the United States, a car maker can declare a vehicle of a certain model year as of January 2nd of the previous year. For example, if they really wanted to, Dodge could roll out the 2017 Dart on January 2, 2016. This isn't going to happen, but as I recall, the 2013 Dart was available as early as May 2012 (it was extended model year, since the 2014s went on sale in October 2013, which is typical). Basically, model years are indeed weird, but it's been this way longer than most people have been alive, and everybody should really already understand this.Why can't anyone grasp that in the 2017 model year there will be big changes coming to the Dart and 2017 model year happens in 2016?

Def tell the dealer you want a discount. The dealer won't know any better. Stand your ground.I bought a 2015 gt and am about to take ownership of it any day now sitting here hugging my phone but the question i have is do we know for sure the gt is getting the new hood and black wheels cause it would save me some money and i can make a deal with the dealer.
