Chrysler is serving up an impressive smattering of Mopar accessories for the 2013 Dodge Dart, including a host of performance parts. All told, buyers will be able to chose from a total of 150 accessories that range from an integrated Wi-Fi system to aerodynamic additions.

Chrysler says the Dart will feature the industry's first wireless charging system for phones and other battery-powered gadgets. Users simply install a device-specific case and lay the hardware in a specific charging zone. The device then gets its battery topped off without the hassle of plugging up wires. Handy. Of course, we're more interested in bits like the available 18-inch wheels and performance brake upgrade, which includes new calipers, rotors and performance pads.

In addition, Chrysler is hoping to thwart would-be thieves with a new electronic vehicle tracking system. The automaker partnered with Guidepoint Systmes, a leading company in GPS-based vehicle recovery systems, to provide tracking from coast to coast without a subscription. Hit the jump for the press release and head over to the Mopar site for a look at the full list of available options.

      Why not just buy this stuff directly from Thule?

      erm, the guidepoint based tracking system is NOT new. I bought it and installed it into my 2011 Jeep Wrangler back in September of 2010. Look up Mopar EVTS, fantastic system, better then lo-jack, better then pretty much any other anti-theft solution short of a proximity sensor.

      This is smart on the part of Chrysler. It's obvious that they are trying to bolster enthusiast appeal, and are taking aim at import tuner market. If the Dart is indeed a legit competitor, then marketing the car in this manner will have a trickle down effect that will bolster the sport appeal of even the base trim levels. It's the reason I would rather drive a base model Subaru Impreza than a Toyota Corolla. As simple as it may seem, not all car companies get it, or even care. Regardless of how you feel about Chrysler, or the bailouts, you must give them credit where it is due, in terms of trying to appeal to enthusiasts.

        I always read your comments in the voice of 'Sam the Eagle' (muppet). Makes it 10x better.

        actually the aftermarket for the 1st generation Neon was heads and shoulders above the Honda or Toyota aftermarket--they just didn't keep pace.

      I can honestly say I've never heard of 'going full boat' as an expression. I was expecting some watercraft accessories (like the kayak) to go with the Dart. I am dissapoint. But the non boaty accessories look decent.

      This would all make a bit more sense if they made a 5-door. But just a bit.
      • 2 Years Ago
      Not a bad looking car, but probably not one that I would add many of the 150 available accessories to. Doubt you'd get your money back when it comes time to sell!
