Dodge Dart Named 2014 Connected Car of the Year

The accolades for the Dodge brand keep rolling in and now Dodge can add technology leader to its list.

With its exclusive, state-of-the-art available Uconnect® system, the Dodge Dart has been named Connected World magazine’s 2014 Connected Car of the Year Award winner in the small connected vehicle category.

In addition, for the second year in a row, the Dart was also named a “Best Bet” in the compact car category of this year’s edition of The Car Book.

The Connected Car of the Year Award was presented at the Connected World Conference Pavilion at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.

Basing their selections on what they describe as “the ideal mix of safety, convenience and infotainment technology,” the magazine’s editorial team presented the award in six vehicle categories: small, midsize, luxury, ultra-luxury, green and truck.

According to Connected World Magazine, Dart took the home the honors because it delivers information and entertainment technology “in a manner that promotes a distraction-free environment.”

  • Maintaining a vehicle’s healthy status has become much easier with Monthly Vehicle Health Report, a monthly report that is sent to customers’ personal email accounts informing them about their vehicle

  • The all-new Send Destination to Vehicle service allows customers to send a location address directly to their in-vehicle Uconnect navigation system using their smartphone.
