Mopar to Offer More Than 150 Parts for the 2013 Dodge Dart

By Trevor Dorchies | January 12, 2012
The 2013 Dodge Dart was officially unveiled earlier this week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and received a warm reception. Adding to the Dart's favorable response is Mopar, Chrysler's accessory and performance parts branch, which is serving up over 150 custom parts for Dodge's latest compact sedan. “By itself, our new Dodge Dart will stand out in the compact-car crowd,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “But for those who want even more customization and personalization, Mopar is offering more than 150 quality-tested accessories and performance parts.” Mopar will be offering features like wireless device charging, Wi-Fi, and an Electronic Vehicle Tracking System. The wireless charging is claimed by Mopar to be an industry first and offers occupants the ability to put electronic devices in a specified charging area without using any wires. The Wi-Fi is also claimed as an industry first, and allows users to stray as far as 150 feet from the Dart before losing service. The third and final industry first from Mopar is the EVTS and is powered by Guidepoint Systems, a maker of GPS-enabled vehicle recovery systems, although LoJack and other aftermarket services have been available for some time.
Other features include a performance styled hood and braking upgrade, 18-inch wheels, and a rear deck lid spoiler. A chrome fuel door and mirror covers, and pedal kit are also some of the other features to be offered. There is also a vehicle-information app available for smartphones and alerts the owner when the Dart needs service. An electronic vehicle manual is also offered by Mopar for the 2013 Dodge Dart. The Dart is scheduled to go on sale early in 2012 but Dodge hasn't disclosed a specific date as of yet. As always, stay tuned as more details and information are divulged. Source: Dodge

Mopar goes out of the way to provide a lot of extras for Chrysler products but rarely offers gizmos to improve safety. Why is it that the vast majority of Chrysler products do not have factory installed side directional signals. Only the upscale models have them. In Europe this simple safety feature is required. Take a look at M-B, BMW, VW, Audi, etc. Mitsubishi is very responsible with its models installing them in all their models.. Most front signals are buried among other lights and barely visible during bright daytime and even nighttime. The Jeep Wrangler desperately needs side night visibility. I am looking for a Wrecked Mitsubishi so I can install them on my Unlimited.
