Dodger is showcasing its all-new 2013 Dart GT model at the Detroit auto show.

The car is basically a performance version of the Dart sedan that has a more aggressive front fascia, 18-inch wheels and perforated Nappa heated leather seats.

The sporty Dart also features a sport suspension with frequency-sensing damping shocks that Chrysler says it „delivers ride and handling attributes designed to cater to driving enthusiasts.”

The Dodge Dart GT is powered by a 2.4-liter MultiAir2 four-cylinder engine that develops 184 horsepower and 174 lb-ft (236 Nm) of torque. The car is priced from $20, 995 in the U.S., with standard equipment including LED taillights, dual exhaust, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and a 7.0-inch TFT display.

The Dart GT model is the latest addition to the 2013 Dodge Dart lineup, which currently includes the Dart SE, SXT, Rallye, Aero and Limited models. Dodge says a high-performance R/T model is also taken into consideration.
