Another Mopar-enhanced offering to celebrate its 75th anniversary, the 2013 Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute provides a distinctive performance-focused twist on the division's recently introduced compact sedan. On the appearance front, the high-profile Dart GTS 210 Tribute boasts a Mopar Stage 1 Appearance Package. Finished in bright red, its attitude-rich exterior sports a contrasting matte-black lower chin spoiler, side sills, rear spoiler and rear-diffuser panel. The component mix, culled from Mopar's catalog of 150-plus Dart-specific accessories, also includes a lightweight carbon-fiber hood with large air scoop and a set of titanium-finish 18-inch/10-spoke forged alloy wheels. The 2013 Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute cabin displays a similar red/black matchup, with Ruby Red Katzkin leather upholstery material teaming with black suede, black accent stitching and real Piano Black trim to add more visual punch.
Injecting a bit more muscle to the mix, the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir 2 four-cylinder engine in the 2013 Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute is fitted with a Mopar Stage 2 Performance Package. In addition to an improved air-intake system and a less-restrictive exhaust, calibration of its fuel/air mix and spark advance have been tweaked, changes that collectively help bump output from 184 to 210 horsepower.
Mopar boss Pietro Gorlier indicated that both the Stage 1 and Stage 2 kits used to create the 2013 Dodge Dart GTS 210 Tribute will go on sale in the fall, and be available as packages or in individual component form.
