AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 16 (UPI) -- Chrysler said the 2013 Dodge Dart would be available by June in five variations with prices ranging from $15,495 to $22,495.

The most basic model, the Dodge Dart SE is equipped with a four-cylinder 160 horsepower engine with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

The Dodge Dart SXT features 17-inch aluminum wheels and a sound system with six speakers. It will sell for a base price of $17,995, plus a $795 shipping fee.

Fancier models include the Dodge Dart Rallye, the Dodge Dart Limited and the Dodge Dart R/T, a performance version with a 2.4 liter, 184 horsepower, four-cylinder engine.

The Limited, priced at $19,995, but also with a delivery fee, comes with an 8.4 inch Uconnect touch screen and rear backup camera. It also has projector fog lights and automatic headlights, the Free Press said.

The 2013 Dart is considered a critical test of the merger between Chrysler and Fiat. It is the first Chrysler car made with a Fiat platform.
