  • Starting price for new Dart is $16,790 including destination
  • Trim levels include the SE, SXT, Rallye, Limited and R/T
  • Three available engines, ranging from 160 to 184 horsepower

The upcoming 2013 Dodge Dart will start at $16,790 when it arrives at dealerships in June. Dodge recently revealed the base price for each of the Dart's trim levels. The compact sedan debuted earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show.

Included in the $16,790 starting price of the base-level Dart SE are ten airbags, power windows and the automaker's new "Denim" cloth seating. While the base model includes several upscale touches like a CD player with MP3 capability and LED taillights, it also lacks some creature comforts including remote keyless entry, power mirrors and even air conditioning.

But those features are all included in the next level up Dart SXT, which will be offered at a starting price of $18,790 including destination. According to Dodge, the Dart SXT will also offer split-folding rear seats, an upgraded sound system with alarm. Power in the SXT comes from the same 160-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine found in the SE. Buyers can choose from either a 6-speed manual or optional automatic transmission.

At the upper end of the Dart range are the Rallye, Limited and R/T trim levels. Starting at $19,790 with shipping, the Rallye includes upgraded front and rear fascias, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and cruise control, while the $20,790 Dart Limited adds an 8.4-inch center-mounted touchscreen infotainment system, a backup camera and automatic headlights. Both models also feature the brand's new MultiAir 4-cylinder engine, which uses a turbocharger to produce 160 horsepower from just 1.4 liters, for better fuel economy.

The top of the line Dart is the sporty R/T, which starts at $23,290 including destination. In addition to the features found in the already fairly plush Dart Limited, the R/T adds perforated leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and 18-inch alloy wheels. The R/T also features a new 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque for improved acceleration and passing power.

The Dart will replace the compact Dodge Caliber hatchback. Competitors include the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Jetta, each of which start between $16,000 and $17,500.

What it means to you: Dodge hopes to challenge established competitors in the crowded compact sedan segment with the all-new 2013 Dart.
