2013 Dodge Dart

The 2013 Dodge Dart hit the market just a short while ago, but it’s already making a big name for itself. Its most recent accomplishment was being named the Earth, Wind & Power Car of the Year for 2013. The EWP Awards honor the most environmentally progressive car and truck of the year.

Earth, Wind & Power Media partners with Road & Travel magazine to educate consumers on climate change and to offer solutions to environmental issues that affect our daily lives.

The EWP Car of the Year Award for the 2013 Dodge Dart was presented in Detroit earlier this month. Presenters included Courtney Caldwell, Editor-in-chief and founder of EWP Media, and Michael Martini, president, Consumer OE, Bridgestone Americas.

Bridgestone, longtime lead sponsor and supporter of the EWP and ICOTY Awards, recognizes the consumer-product relationship as critical to vehicle success.

“Bridgestone is proud to support the and EWP ICOTY awards, and applauds the efforts of these automakers that, like our company, demonstrate a strong commitment to innovative technology,” said Michael Martini, president, Consumer OE, Bridgestone Americas. “Through the combined efforts of everyone in the auto industry, and led by automakers like those being recognized today, we will continue to meet and exceed the demands of the motoring public.”

Reid Bigland, President CEO – Dodge Brand,  was on hand at the 2013 North American International Auto Show during media days to personally accept the award from Road & Travel magazine publisher and president Courtney Caldwell.

The award praises automakers that produce the most fuel-efficient vehicles. “We are honored to accept this award that recognizes the Dodge Dart’s environmental friendliness and fuel economy of up to 41 miles per gallon,” said Bigland. “In addition to its excellent fuel economy, the all-new Dodge Dart offers features and benefits never before offered in a compact car, the interior room of a mid-size car and class-leading technology, style and safety, and a starting price of just $15,995.”

Environmentally friendliness is only one great feature about the 2013 Dodge Dart. The all-new Dodge Dart is loaded with state-of-the-art technology, including 10 standard air bags, available ParkView rear back-up camera, blind spot monitoring and rear crosspath detection.
