Dodge has just unveiled the 2012 Dart at the Detroit Auto Show and there are already rumors about a more powerful version called SRT4 is already under development. The upcoming Dart SRT4 should arrive just in time for the 2014 model year as a competitor for models like Ford Focus ST. Prices will be kept under $30k.

Just like its standard Dart brother, the SRT4 will borrow heavily from te Alfa Romeo Giulietta. However, do not expect to see the same 230 HP 1.7-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine because its competitor, the Focus ST gets a total of 247 HP under the hood. This means that most like the upcoming Dart SRT4 will be powered by a turbocharged version of the 2.0-liter engine with the output raised in the 285 HP area.

Also the next Dart SRT4 will be distinguished by a meaner appearance that will include manner functional scoops and vents, an aggressive rear deck spoiler, stiffer springs and dampers, larger wheels, and upgraded rubber.

The schemed mean appearance didn’t really work out well, but it still has its allure. Further than its exterior, maybe its performance could bring out its wicked aspect more.

I love its majestic exterior. The wheels are attractive. The details and linings in the hood define more of a sportier look of this Dodge Dart.
