I'm just throwing it out there, but I really like the new Dodge Dart's taillights. I know it's just a continuation of the Dodge rear end design language that we've already seen on the Charger and Challenger — but I think the implementation we've seen on the Dart is really hot.

Why am I bringing this up? I really don't know — I just know that as I walked by it earlier today I was struck by just how good that little econobox's rear end looks.

As we previously discussed, this first Fiat-based Chrysler will come with a trio of engines: 2.0-liter Tigershark, 1.4-liter Turbo MultiAir, and 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir2.


Ignoring the rental-grade 2.0-liter, the 1.4-liter engine puts out 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque and comes with the optional dual-clutch six-speed transmission. The top-o-the-line mill is the 2.4-liter, which puts out 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque.


All well and good, but I'm loving that hot li'l ass.
