One of the debuts everyone has been anxiously awaiting for has been leaked, with the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart hitting the interwebs ahead of its official 2012 Detroit Auto Show debut.

The first Chrysler product to be based on a Fiat architecture, the 2013 Dodge Dart looks sporty and contemporary. The Dart effectively replaces the Caliber in Dodge’s lineup offering the Chrysler Group a direct rival to the Ford Focus and Chevrolet saloons.

The vehicle itself is based on the Alfa Romeo’s Giulietta platform and it will be available with three different four-cylinder engines. The engine include a 1.4L MultiAir Turbo, a 2.0L Tigershark and a 2.4L MultiAir Tigershark. They can be connected to three different transmissions which are expected to include a six-speed TCT (Twin Clutch Transmission) and a nine-speed automatic.

We’ll know more when the wrap comes off this new stunner from Dodge at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show. For now, enjoy the first official pictures and video below!
