DIRT 5 is coming and it is coming soon. Yet, there is still a lot more to learn about it and plenty more that is unknown at this point. Hopefully all of that mystery will be cleared up during our review.
However this post isn’t about what we don’t know, it’s about what we do. Specifically, all the cars that will be in DIRT 5 at launch.
Before listing all the cars, note that the cars in DIRT 5 are separated into 13 different classes: Super Lites, Rock Bouncer, Formula off-road, Unlimited, Modern Rally, Classic Rally, 80s rally, 90s rally, Rally GT, Rally Cross, Pre-Runner, Cross-Raid, and Sprint.
That’s a lot of classes. Though, a few of them only have a few cars in them. It should also be mentioned that a few of the cars in the overall list are fictional vehicles.
Codemasters has also confirmed that there will be additional cars added to DIRT 5 over time via DLC. Currently it is unknown if any future DLC will be paid or free but if following the track record of previous codemasters racing games is an indicator, chances are the DLC will be paid but very cheap.
As an example, the two DLC add-ons for DiRT 4 add up to less than $5 combined. That being said, we’re moving into a brand new console generation and things can certainly change.
There are also more than a few cars on the list that have never been in a previous DIRT game like the Audi TT Safari, Ariel Nomad Tactical, Aston Martin DBX, and the Mitsubishi e-EVOLUTION.
