Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute: MOAR MOPAR

Jalopnik

Chrysler wants you to like the Dodge Dart. They really do. And they're sweetening the pot with a a million powertrains …

Aesthetically, the "Stage 1" appearance package adds details that are a touch more Jersey Shore Italian than sexy Ferrari Italian. Maybe it'll look better on a black car, but there's something a touch disturbing about a matte black spoiler, chin spoiler, diffuser on a red car. The black carbon fiber hood with gigantic (working?) hood scoop also doesn't do it any favors.

The 18-inch titanium alloy wheels are a nice touch.

Hopefully, you don't have to go through "Stage 1" to get to the "Stage 2" performance package. There's a "performance calibration" we're taking to mean a light tune, coupled with a new intake and exhaust. This boosts power on the 2.4-liter Tigershark model to 210 horsepower over the base 184, thus the name.

If you were curious how they get to the "150" number of accessories it's with options like a "bright finish" pedal kit and a wireless device charging mat. The onboard Wi-Fi with a 150-ft range isn't a performance option, but will help to make the screen-laden Dart an interesting choice for a techmobile.
