History is being made this weekend in sunny southern California,
and the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart will be right in the middle of
The “SoCal Ride and Drive New Car Show”
– the nation’s first-ever event that pairs a
traditional auto show with the opportunity to drive virtually every
car on the showroom floor – begins Friday, June 15 and runs
through Sunday, June 17 at the Long
Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif. While there, test
drivers are encouraged to tweet their impressions using the #testdriveexpo hashtag.
One model that promises to attract a lot of attention is the
all-new Dart, which is making its initial hands-on public
“This is the first time the general public will be able to
test-drive the Dodge Dart,” said Dodge Dart Brand Manager
Deborah Reyes. “It’s all about getting people behind
the wheel of the Dart, to have them experience this new and highly
competitive entry in a crucial segment of the auto industry.”
The award-winning Dodge Dart provides the ultimate blend of style,
power, fuel-efficiency, interior roominess and exceptional value in
a compact car.
Other Chrysler Group vehicles on hand to test-drive will be the
Dodge Challenger SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8, Dodge Durango, Jeep®
Compass, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Jeep Grand Cherokee, Fiat 500
Cabrio, Ram 1500, and the Chrysler 200, Chrysler 300 SRT, and
Chrysler Town & Country.
The expo is noon until 8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Saturday, and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Sunday. You can get admission
and other details at The
SoCal Test Drive Expo's site.
