We are pretty sure that most people have heard that Dodge is bringing back the Dart nameplate. The reintroduction and reincarnation of old nameplates seems to becoming more and more common among car manufacturers. Ford brought back the Thunderbird and Taurus, Dodge has already brought back the Challenger and the Durango.
Dart was part of the Dodge lineup originally from 1960 to 1974, starting as a full size car and ending as a compact car. Its name became synonymous with sturdy and dependable. In fact, “The Dart was one of the most successful compact cars ever introduced in the American automobile marketplace,” according to R.D. McLaughlin, then vice president of Chrysler’s Automotive sales division.
Looking back at the old Dart and then looking at the 2013 Dart that will be hitting dealer lots Second Quarter 2013, they styles are definitely different and the power trains certainly don’t have a lot in common.
