• 2015 Dodge Dart R/T Concept

    The Dodge Dart finally gets the R/T treatment, but it is only for the SEMA show. Might this make it to production?
LISTEN 02:11

The list of Dodge vehicles prepped for SEMA keeps growing. This one is the Dart R/T Concept and combines quite a few exterior modifications to strengthen the Dart’s street cred.

Most noticeable is the matte-black hood, roof, and rear decklid combined with matching 18-inch wheels. That’s contrasted by Dodge’s O-So-Orange paint that really makes the Dart stand out.

Besides the color combination, this Dart sports a new front fascia with an enlarged grille opening that provides extra airflow to the engine’s intercooler. The grille features new textures and LED fog-lamp surrounds. Also feeding more air into the car is that updated hood. The all aluminum piece has a large intake that forces air directly into the turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-four’s air intake. Further back, a heat extractor helps remove hot air and positive pressure from the engine bay.

Dodge added several Mopar parts to this concept that dress it up even more, including a front chin splitter, side-sill accents, and a rear fascia diffuser. That rear diffuser molds itself around some bold, 3.5-inch exhaust tips that let everyone know the Dart is coming. On the decklid, a large three-piece spoiler adds some downforce and sport.

Last but certainly not least are some actual mechanical modifications. A Mopar big-brake kit brings the whole operation to a halt and adjustable coil-over shocks help the Dart feel more darty.

Up front is an updated fascia with new textures and design cues. The Dart’s cute face is suddenly more aggressive thanks to the new look and matte-black hood with its large power bulge and air intake.

Matching 18-inch, matte-black wheels continue the sinister look with large-diameter, high-performance brakes peaking out from behind. The adjustable coil-over shock absorbers help bring the Dart to a more street-worthy stance while providing a more competitive driving experience.

Press Release

The Dodge Dart R/T Concept demonstrates that in addition to value and style, the 2015 Dodge Dart has loads of potential to deliver the goods for performance enthusiasts.

The Dodge Dart R/T Concept flexes its muscle with athletic and agile performance styling cues. A Mopar performance matte black aluminum hood provides a sinister, contrasting look to the “O-So-Orange” painted concept Dart. The hood mounted duct feeds cool ambient air directly into the air box, while an air exhauster at the rear pulls hot air from the Dodge Dart R/T Concept’s intercooled turbocharged engine.

An aggressive front fascia with an enlarged grille opening provides maximum airflow to the Dart’s massive intercooler. New grille textures and LED fog lamp surround, along with select items from the Mopar Dart body kit (including a front chin splitter, side sill accents and rear fascia diffuser) amp up the car’s attitude. In line with the more aggressive appearance, the back end boasts a unique three-piece spoiler, perched above prominent three-and-a-half inch exhaust tips.

Riding on 18-inch Mopar anodized black lightweight wheels, the power of the Dodge Dart R/T Concept is harnessed by a Mopar big brake kit, and handling is improved with an adjustable coil-over suspension. Like the hood, the roof and deck-lid have a matte black finish, creating a unique look that is poised to strike fear in the competition.
