As time passed, people were less and less hopeful of actually seeing the model appear in the limelight. The vehicle had so much production problems that the idea was almost stint at one time. The year of 2005 was when we finally got something to hold on and hope of seeing the successor of the Neon SRR-4 model back in the market and finally appear. The biggest problem was making the right choice for the powertrain of the model. This was one piece of news that appeared at the Chicago Auto Show in 2014 when the design was almost pulled due to an inadequate engine. Luckily they managed to pull themselves back together and have found a way to match the appropriate powertrain for the car.

The news about the release date of the car has been made available by the Fiat Chrysler group. The announcement came recently and was unveiled that a five year production plan was taken into effect and that actually we are going to manage to receive the car sooner than people were hoping for. Actually it was just at around the time when people started giving up on ever seeing the model appear at all.

This is the review which is going to bring you a bit closer to the Dodge Dart SRT4 2017 version.

The 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 is a sportier version of the sedan model that we have gotten before. It actually sports a lot of visual upgrades that make in an overall handsome car which also shows that it means business and does not leave anything to chances. The changes that have been made for this sporty version are the added pair of bumpers, both front and back, which actually make the aggressiveness of the car at its peak.

There are also various other additions that make the car look sporty as it gets the large apron intake, a rear diffuser which is monumental for the back, and also a hood scoop. This is going to combine more than great with the changes that are going to happen under the skin of the car as they include added and improved suspension and also the ability to carry more driving modes.

The parts that are still standard for the car are actually the ones that we see on the base version of the car which are going to be standard on the SRT4 as well. This means that the standard bi-function halogen headlamps are kept and they are followed by the LED features that have been added also that go into the turnlights. The  body-colored “crosshair” grille and surrounds are standard here as well and we do get to see a little bit of chrome but not as much so as not teh avert attention from the The model uses the 17-inch wheels as standard but there are going to be other options available as well.

Interior Changes

The inside of the 2017 Dodge Dart SRT4 gets the same treatment as the exterior. It actually utilizes the basis setup that we had before and gives it an SRT remake. The base version does not change that much compared to the previous version and the only difference is mainly based on the trim elves that the model possesses. The car is going to utilize the base version and expand it by adding new and different features to make it better.

The inside of the 2017 SRT4 is mainly going to be updated with racy features which are added in order to give the carry appearance of the car.
