OAK LAWN, Ill., July 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The days of compact cars being thought of as bland and boring are in the past. To compete in the modern small sedan segment, vehicles must deliver elite styling, fun-loving performance, adequate space and, perhaps most importantly, exceptional fuel economy. As the bar continues to rise in the segment, Dodge tossed its hat in the ring in the 2013 model year with the Dodge Dart. While it entered with a bang, the Dodge Dart was further refined for the 2014 model year to deliver the muscular persona of the Dodge fleet while also competing with some of the segment's top entries.

What reviewers and drivers love most about the 2014 Dodge Dart is its energetic performance. For 2014, Dodge made the impressive 184-horsepower 2.4-liter four cylinder engine more widely available. Upon its release in the 2013 model year, that engine was reserved exclusively for the Dodge Dart GT trim, but it has become standard on SXT and Limited trim levels as well for 2014.

Although that is the most performance-focused engine option, it's certainly not the only choice. The base Dodge Dart SE houses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 160 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. Those looking for a bump in fuel economy can turn to the Dodge Dart Aero, which is equipped with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine capable of 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.

The various engine options and trim configuration of the 2014 Dodge Dart are available at South Oak Dodge. To browse the inventory online, visit or reach the dealership by phone at 708-747-7950.
