2014 Dodge Dart Blacktop Edition Adds Style to Small Sedan

By Jacob Brown | January 07, 2014
Let's face it -- after the utility and practical considerations that go into buying a car, what a purchase ultimately comes down to is style and design. Dodge realizes this and, in fact, embraces it. The latest example is the 2014 Dodge Dart Blacktop Edition, which joins other Blacktop models in its lineup for the new model year. Bedecked with glossy 18-inch black wheels, glossy black mirror caps, and a unique sports interior, the Blacktop Edition retails for just $295 over the price of a standard-issue 2014 Dodge Dart SXT with Rallye Appearance Package. That, in turn, retails for $19,985, including $995 for destination and handling, and comes equipped with a standard 2.4-liter, Tigershark 2 engine that produces 184 horsepower. It comes paired with a standard six-speed manual transmission, although a six-speed automatic is also available. Also featuring blackened headlight housings and other unique details throughout, the 2014 Dodge Dart Blacktop Edition is available in Redline Red, Header Orange, Blue Streak, Granite Crystal Metallic, Billet Silver, Pitch Black, and Bright White.
"The Blacktops have become a signature of sorts for the Dodge Brand," said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC, in a statement. "With the addition of the Blacktop package for the Dodge Dart, we’re adding to our line-up of vehicles that offer the more aggressive look that has become so popular with our customers." The 2014 Dodge Dart Blacktop Edition will be available starting in the first quarter of 2014 and makes its public debut at next week's North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Source: Dodge
