DCX has switched over to the true 2007 Caliber. This is why a few weeks ago you couldn't order a Caliber.

FWD R/T Now Available
Solar Yellow has been replaced by Khaki
Front Seat Side Ar bags are a new option (late availability)
Trailer Tow Group has been added
ESP an option on all models w/o 2.0

I believe YESessentials fabric is either standard or available now as well.

Another possibility is that if you get an SXT Sport, you should get a colored grill instead of a chrome grill. It seems as if most people who ordered an SXT Sport now are getting a colored grill fascia.

I'm actually hoping mine has the colored grill. I think with SunBurst Orange, it would look better than the Chrome Grill.

So ESP is only available with the 1.8 and 2.4 engine and not the 2.0? That would really suck if it was true. Looking at getting a SXT sport with the 2.0 and was looking forward to ESP. I guess if the FWD R/T isn't that much more than the SXT I'll go that route instead and get the bigger wheels and 2.4 engine. Looking forward to pricing.

Also about the yes essential fabric, does it mean the fabric design and feel will be different from the current Calibers?

This may be a stupid question, but the 1.8 is still the only option for a manual tranny, right? Or will the R/T FWD offer a manual as well?

From what I've read elsewhere, Dodge is no longer making the 2006.5 Caliber so all orders placed that have not been built are true 2007 Calibers. If you have the last 8 digits of your VIN (NOT VON!), if it starts with a 7 then you have a 2007 Caliber, if it starts with a 6, then you have a 2006.5 Caliber.

I ordered mine on May 1st when 2006.5 Calibers were being built, but when I got allocation for one, it slipped into 2007.

wow I forgot to mention the good news R/T FWD 2.4L 5 speed manual
score!

Any idea on pricing?

I am assuming they are keeping the AWD, and that FWD should be a little cheaper. But there's no info on the Dodge site so far.

All Caliber's starts with a 7. All the calibers on Dodge's site that have been on there a while all start with a 7. I ordered mine 4/14 and have a 7 also. Some misinformation there..

I second that. If you look in the book the dealers have it shows the chrome grill on all the models except the SE. I complained to my dealer and they ordered me the chrome grill. It's been 4 weeks though and I have yet to see it.

If I retain the color matched grill I'd be willing to sell it. Not sure if they will let me keep it though.
