I just picked mine up yesterday and it is a inferno red SXT Sport. I did not notice this until I got home, but I thought the sport had the black pillars bars near the windows (B-pillars)?? Mine are the same color as the rest of the car??

What other Sport options did you get? There is the base SXT and then there is a step up to the SXT Sport. It should have blacked out pillars if it is a sport.

It is a SXT Sport with the colored inserts on the seats and dashboard. It has the auto trans and ABS and cruise control and 2.0L engine. No other opions really.

I thought all SXT Sports had the blacked-out pillars too - but there were some discussion threads a few months ago about a lot of confusion with continued availability of the SXT Sport and changes in the Sport package listings, especially an apparent “name change” for the package itself.

Apparently, the blackout panels are available as separate parts from a dealer, and other folks have recommended alternate solutions to get a blackout look on the panels as well:

Wow, that's really interesting that there seems to be so much inconsistency. My Sport came with the following upgrades: aluminum wheels, fog lights, blackout tape, colored inserts & dash, and body color grille. Maybe you can talk the dealer into hooking you up with the blackout tape.

I stopped in at a dealership (not were I purchased mine), this morning on my way into work. They had a silver SXT Sport Caliber. It had silver pillars on it and not black. Production change to save money??

If your talking about the upper b-post cover where the pass/driver side seatbelt comes from I've never seen it black. I've only seen it off-white like the headliner.

No, talking about the outside of the car, the pillars that run between the side windows.
