Dodge Dart Sales Grow in August

The end of August means that the sales numbers for the month will be coming soon. While it’ll be interesting to see how the trends go for Chrysler and the rest of the industry, there is one notable bit of news already.

We’ve been hyping up and reporting on the upcoming Dodge Dart and about how much it’s going to take the industry by storm. The reviews have started coming in and it’s been extremely positive. August is really the first month where people could get the Dart in limited quantities before the full roll-out later this year. Dodge has put out the numbers for just how well the Dart did with the small release.

In the month of August, Dodge Dart managed to move 3,000 units. To put that in perspective, June had sales for the new vehicle at 250 units and 850 in July. Dodge wants to make sure that it’s careful with how it’s bringing out the new sedan and maintain a high quality.

Chrysler executives believe that September will be even higher for the sedan. A lot of that is due to the Dart seeing a much needed boost in its production over the course of the next month. The additional production to the Dart does come at the cost of the Jeep Compass and Patriot getting a lower number rolled out of the plants. The increase in making Darts has given the plant an additional workforce of 1,000 employees.

Dodge Dart is the hottest car of the year and we’ll be continuing the coverage it creates. You can keep up to date on it by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the online show-room for more information on the Dart and other Dodge vehicles.

Dodge Dart Car of the Year!

Time and time again, we’ve written that the Dodge Dart is going to be one of the biggest cars of the year. It’s satisfying to know that we’re not the only ones making that claim. The Chronicle Herald has posted up a review that makes a very large claim about just how good the Dodge Dart is. The reviewer is convinced that the Dart has car of the year written all over it.

He makes sure to mention all the features that stood out to him as being some of his favorites. The class that the Dart falls into is the compact class, but that doesn’t keep it from having a size-able interior. He remarks that the interior offers a comfortable, roomy, and quiet ride. The amount of space that it provides is much more comparable to a mid-sized and is on that “drivers and passengers will love spending time in.”

The powertrain gets a highlight as one that drivers will enjoy. The Dodge Dart has a high redline and the engine has a throaty roar when given the push. In time, the Dart will have plenty of choices for engines with examples ranging from the base of the S/E to the R/T. The Chronicle Herald also notes that the suspension is taut which makes any twists and turns an absolute riot to slalom through.

It’s clear by the end of the review just how much the writer loved his time with the Dart. “It has style, substance, space, and a price tag that won’t break the bank. This car is a winner.”

Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger are the Most Ideal Vehicles

Two Dodge cars need to clear some space in their trophy case for some new awards. The Chrysler AutoPacific’s 2012 Ideal Vehicle Awards are out and have given high honors to the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Challenger.

The Ideal Vehicle Awards are based on 15 key attributes of owner ratings on a 2012 vehicle 90 days after they bought it. These points include power and acceleration, ride and handling, interior roominess, and cargo space. AutoPacific ended up surveying over 75,000 car owners to get their thoughts on which were the best.

The 2012 Dodge Charger is the Ideal Large Car. 90 percent of the Charger owners gave the highest rating of ideal to the exterior size, the ride and handling, even the ease of just getting inside the vehicle and getting back out. There were other features that received a great deal of praise from owners were the comfort of the seats, the tires, and the safety features.

The 2012 Dodge Challenger is the Ideal Vehicle for Sporty Cars. This is due in part to the powerful engine, the powerful and athletic exterior styling, and all the features that people want in a classic American muscle car.

Doug Betts, the Senior Vice President of Chrysler Group said in regards to the win, “Winning awards for Jeep and Dodge vehicles based on customer feedback is very gratifying. Recognition by the customers proves we take consumer input very seriously in all the vehicles we design and build at Chrysler.”

Dodge Website Highest in Satisfaction According to Survey

Dodge has many reasons to be happy for the start of August. First, the full release of the Dodge Dart is right around the corner and is getting a lot of love from all around the car world. Second, Dodge saw a great increase in their overall sales for the month of July. Lastly, Dodge is getting a featured slot in a major upcoming film. That’s not all, however, to be proud about for the car maker, thanks to J.D. Power and Associates.

According to Allpar, J.D. Power and Associates have the Dodge brand as the highest ranked website in the industry for overall satisfaction among new-vehicle shoppers in the 2012 Manufacturer Website Evaluations Study. The study looked at how useful the websites for the auto makers were for new buyers. The sites are graded on their content, navigation, appearance, and speed. Rankings are then determined by a surveyed response by the car buyer who have said they will be in the market for a new car within the next 24 months.

Tom Laymac, the head of Chrysler’s interactive marketing commented on the survey results, “Consumers increasingly researched vehicle purchases online, but the challenge is the variety of online options whether it’s from a tablet, cell phone, or computer. We’ve made significant updates to simplify the design, improve the navigation and help shoppes get to the product information faster whether it’s from a computer screen or mobile device.”
