  • Dart GT now available with 2.4-liter engine
  • New engine has 184 hp, up 24 hp from standard Dart
  • Dart GT also adds leather, dual exhausts, 18-inch wheels

The 2013 Dodge Dart GT is officially in production. The latest Dart model is sportier than current offerings, adding a powerful new 2.4-liter engine to the compact sedan's lineup.

Dodge says production of the all-new Dart GT officially began last week. That means the sedan will arrive in dealership showrooms later this month, providing shoppers with a new choice among compact sedans.

For buyers interested in power, the Dart GT provides an excellent option. The sedan's new 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine offers 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. That's a big boost over today's models, both of which peak at 160 hp. In fact, the new engine places the Dart GT near the top of the compact sedan class in terms of power.

Beyond its new engine, the sporty Dart GT also adds a few other upgrades. They include 18-inch alloy wheels, sport suspension and dual exhausts. On the inside, the Dart GT adds a standard leather interior.

The Dart GT's added power will, of course, take a bite out of the sedan's gas mileage. The Environmental Protection Agency says the Dart GT returns 21 miles per gallon city/30 mpg hwy with its standard 6-speed automatic. That figure falls behind both the Dart's 2.0-liter engine, rated at 24 mpg city/34 mpg hwy in automatic format, and its 1.4-liter motor, which returns 27 mpg city/37 mpg hwy with its automatic transmission.

But shoppers who want extra power aren't likely to miss the few lost miles per gallon. They're also likely to approve of the sedan's base price, which starts under $22,000 with destination.

What it means to you: The 2013 Dodge Dart GT adds a new, sporty flair to the compact Dart sedan's lineup.
