Members of the Dodge Dart Lovers Club unite: Dodge needs your help pinning down the price and model matrix for the Dodge Dart. As Ford recently did with the 2013 Escape, Dodge has set up a configurator with tentative pricing and options for five trims of the small sedan. According to the automaker, the point is to "provide us with information on how you want to see the all-new Dart," but it's a survey more than a true builder, so "Please note the packaging and pricing information on this site is for survey purposes only."

As of now, the not-finalized price of entry is $17,200 for a Dart SE with the 2.0-liter Tigershark powerplant with 160 horsepower. The standard engine remains the same but the options swell on the next three models: the $19,00 SXT adds things like bigger wheels and keyless entry; the $20,500 Rallye gets a new front fascia and a leather-wrapped steering wheel; the $21,500 Limited installs the 8.4-inch infotainment center and seven-inch reconfigurable dash cluster; and with the top-of-the-mountain, manual transmission, $24,000 R/T you upgrade to the 2.4-liter, 184-horsepower Tigershark engine, bigger wheels and dual exhaust.

The options are plentiful – all trims are offered in manual and automatic, and the 1.4-liter turbo is an engine option on the SXT, Rallye and Limited. Remember, though, some options wouldn't exactly make sense if this were a finalized model. The $19,400 SXT comes with Keyless Entry, but on the $24,000 R/T you have to purchase the $1,400 Technology Group that includes Keyless Entry. Our highly scientific test involved checking every option on an automatic R/T. The result: a $31,050 Dodge Dart.

That's why, as the site says, "The features and prices for the final 2013 Dodge Dart will become available when the vehicle goes on sale in Q2 of 2012. The information on this site may change frequently, so don't be surprised if things look different next time you visit." Head over to the configurator and get cracking, and see all 12 available colors in our gallery below.

      I won't be buying one but kudos to Dodge for an attractive design.

      Thrilled to see the color varieties, especially THREE shades of blue. There are way too many black, silver, and gray vehicles which are visually "lost" out there on the roads.

        4 blues to choose from. Although I personally would've loved to see at least one Green color that's acceptable (Citrus peel is a bit much)

        I agree, but that green looks like something got sick all over it.

      Give 'em credit for one thing: lots of color choices, and some nervy colors as well. I looked at Buicks lately. Nice fancy cars, but only about 5 color choices, and all dead dull.

      I like how there are so many color options, the orange looks really good, unlike some out there where you can have it in any color you like as long as its black or some shade of silver (cough TL cough). Would till rather pay 2k more for a lesser optioned WRX but it looks like dodge is going to have a great deal of success with the dart.

      Having seen a number of examples of this car in many of the colors shown, I can say that the exterior color choice make a huge difference with this particular vehicle. Some make the car look much smaller than it is, and others make it look like totally different car. I will pass on the "baby diarrhea green" colored one in the above photo.

      Looks to me like the configurator is being overrun by Autobloggers, it is crawling along for me, just barely loading.

      Look at that, real colors. Orange! Green! 3 different blues! Not just white, light grey, medium grey, dark grey, and black. it will be nice to see a few bright colors on the road standing out in the sea of beige and blah. Not so excited about the price though. $24k for the R/T means an eventual SRT-4 will be pushing $30k.

        might not be, the titanium focus is 23k so only 2k more for the ST if its priced at 25k. the manual R/T is 23k so the SRT should be priced around 26k if they hope to sell any. the SRT challenger is way overpriced compared to the competition though so we'll have to wait and see

      It's nice to see different colors being offered. But the green colors does not appeal to me much. The orange could be a lot darker than what's being offered. Side note: I wonder if Dodge would produce the Dodge Demon they had introduced as a concept car in 2007 at the Geneva Motor Show. The concept car was a 2-seater that would have competed with the Mazda MX-5.
