Test Configurator for 2013 Dart with Halo Projector Headlights

As Dodge prepares the 2013 Dodge Dart with halo projector headlights for its spring release, the carmaker is testing the waters with a comprehensive pricing and features strategy for the model. p>

On the Dodge website, there’s now a test configurator for the model, which is for survey purposes only. The features, packaging and pricing are subject to change before the model goes on sale.

In a previous statement, Chrysler Group confirmed a starting price of $15,995 (not including the destination charge) for the Dart.

The Dodge Dart with halo projector headlights will be available in SE, SXT, Rallye, Limited and R/T trims. Features usually reserved for larger luxury vehicles like high-intensity-discharge headlights, an LCD digital gauge cluster and a heated steering wheel are just a few of the items on the Dart’s laundry list of available equipment.

Who knows if all the features will make it, but currently the Dart with halo projector headlights can be priced slightly north of $30,000 with the configurator, though we doubt that will remain when the real configurator goes online.

There are very few compact vehicles that crack the $30,000 threshold – even a fully loaded 2012 Ford Focus with self-parking feature stays beneath that price.
