I'm actually excited about this. This is hardly on the same level as the Neon was. Fiat is doing what everyone expected them to do, bring over models that were primarily sold in Europe, and put an American flair on them. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not biting at the bit to go pick one up.

From ALLPAR:

Allpar asked Reid Bigland about the choice of the name Dodge Dart (and what happened to Hornet) during our interview on Monday, which will be posted in full later. This is the story:

"We did a lot of research on the name Dart. Interestingly enough, anyone that we spoke to that was under the age of 35, we showed them pictures of the 2013 Dart with the aggressive aero, the look, the sportiness, and asked them which names they thought fit best. Dart was the overwhelming bulls-eye.

These people weren’t very familiar with the 1960-1976 Dart. They were just looking at Dart for matching the design and the aero of the current car.

Then on a demographic of 45 and older, there was a lot of affiliation with name Dart. The affiliation with the name Dart, the original, was very positive. The vehicle had a great run. 1960-1976 sold almost 4 million Darts. If I can get halfway there with this car I would be pretty happy.

Dart to this day lives quite large on drag strips throughout North America. A lot of people have a very strong affinity for Dart today, so they too were quite keen on the reentry of the name Dart back into the Dodge portfolio."

More details on the choice of the name “Dodge Dart” will be posted with our full interview.
