We haven't heard much about the Dodge Dart SRT-4 lately, but a new report is indicating the company is developing a high-performance version sans the SRT badging.

According to Allpar's sources, a small team of engineers are trying to fit a V6 engine into the Dart. There's no word on which engines are being considered but the website suggests it could be either a 3.0-liter V6 - with approximately 230 bhp (171 kW) -  or a 3.2-liter V6 with 271 bhp (202 kW). Regardless of which one gets the nod, both are sustainably more powerful than the range-topping 2.4-liter TigerShark four-cylinder which cranks out 184 bhp (137 kW).

If everything goes according to plan, the Dodge Dart V6 could be introduced in a year or two.
