Changes for the 2014 Dodge Dart:
Dodge cancels the Dart Rallye and discontinues the limited-production Mopar ’14 Dart models this year, and makes the Dart GT’s 184-horsepower engine standard for the SXT and Limited models. Standard equipment lists and option package contents are also revised to reflect improved value for Dart buyers.
This year, five versions of the Dart are on sale: SE, SXT, Aero, GT, and Limited. The SXT adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, automatic headlights, LED racetrack taillights, power side mirrors, active grille shutters, and an underbody aerodynamics package to the SE model. Inside, the Dart SXT includes air conditioning, power door locks with remote keyless entry, an upgraded audio system, floor mats, and more.
Aero models add low-rolling resistance tires, a Uconnect 8.4-inch color touchscreen infotainment system with a reversing camera, reconfigurable gauges with a trip computer, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Dart GT models build from the SXT with sport-tuned suspension and steering, 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lights, and sporty exterior trim. Inside, this model has dual-zone automatic climate control, leather, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated side mirrors, keyless passive entry with push-button starting, reconfigurable gauges, and Uconnect 8.4.
Limited models have a different look than the GT, a softer suspension, normal steering, and 17-inch wheels. A power sunroof is standard, along with a navigation system, a 10-way power driver’s seat, ambient interior lighting, and more.
Engines and Transmissions:
A 160-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard for the Dart SE. Choose the Dart SXT, GT, or Limited, and a 184-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is installed under the hood. The Dart Aero is the fuel economy champ of the lineup, thanks to a turbocharged, 160-horsepower, 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine.
All 2014 Dart models except for the Limited come with a standard 6-speed manual gearbox. A 6-speed automatic is standard for the Dart Limited, and optional for the SE, SXT, and GT. The Dart Aero can be optioned with a dual dry-clutch automated manual transmission if the buyer can’t operate a clutch pedal.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
The Dart SE with the manual transmission is rated to get 29 mpg in combined driving. Choose the optional automatic, and that number drops to 27 mpg, matching the larger and more powerful engine in the SXT, GT, and Limited models. The Dart Aero achieves 32 mpg in combined driving, regardless of transmission choice. However, premium fuel is recommended for this engine.
If you’re looking for a safe small car, the 2014 Dodge Dart is one of just a few vehicles in its class to receive a “Top Safety Pick+” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Additionally, the Dart gets a 5-star overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Dodge offers the 2014 Dart with a reversing camera, rear parking assist sensors, a Rear Cross-Path Detection system, and Blind Spot Monitoring. Certain models come with a reconfigurable gauge cluster, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect color touchscreen infotainment system is available.
