With the Chevrolet Cruze coming to the U.S. as a diesel in the near future, why not look to other compacts to get the on the diesel bandwagon. However, where the Cruze will get an impressive 2.0-liter turbo-diesel, Dodge can reach to the Italians for a 2.4-liter diesel powerplant. The five-cylinder diesel that lives in the Alfa Romeo Brera puts out 210-hp and 294 lb-ft. With Fiat owning Alfa Romeo and having a significant hand in Chrysler, this 2.4 diesel could easily make its way over to the Dart.

That much power and torque would give the Dart some serious adrenaline, something that Mopar fans have been pining for since the Dart name was revived.
