Along with most people on this site I like the Caliber and am awaiting for the SRT-4 version to come along, but the SXT and R/T models look great also. At first the design didn't appeal to me, but since seeing the videos and more pictures I really like it.:)

After browsing through these forums I have found alot of useful information, but my question is how long do you think they are going to be producing the SRT-4 version? :confused:

I get out of school in 2 years and am looking foward to purchasing a car and the performance is what I am really drawn too. But I just hope they build it for longer then 3 years, because then I would be able to get a new one from the factory.:rolleyes:

I just find it funny that all who say it looks ugly or whatever are forgetting that this this is coming with 300horses from the factory which is freakin' awesome!:D

Anyways how long do you guys think it will be produced for and what type of price are we looking at for the SRT-4 version?

they'll probably go more than 3 years this time; dcx knew the neon platform was done before they started selling the neon SRT-4..

im sure it will be around longer than 3 years. even if it is not on the caliber platform, the srt models arent going anywhere and will be around on something else (if the caliber tanks). DCX hit gold with the srt's and they arent getting rid of them

They'll probably run with the SRT version as long as the Caliber is sold. The SRT line has always been one of Dodge's aces. :)

Hello nvmeplz,
I can assure you the Caliber isn’t going anywhere in the market place, designed for the world market. The Caliber will be available in close to 100 countries outside North America. Designers and engineers strived to design vehicle that appeals to consumers across the globe.

Significant investment went into developing the Caliber including the GEMA produced “World Engine”, the first CVT2 to appear in a DiamlerChrysler vehicle and a brand new platform to deliver world-class performance, value and refinement. These models will be tweaked slightly depending on market but the underpinning will remain the same.

We expect the Caliber to be a strong competitor and an established nameplate in the automotive market. Three years just gives us more time to further refine this vehicle.

If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know.

i really like the srt version aswell. Im already selling my neon srt-4.
The SRT adds some interesting flare; I didn’t like the Caliber until I saw it in person. Same thing happened with the 300, I initially hated it but the shape and look of the vehicle really started to grow on me.

I am sure as time goes on, the designers will tweak and update various features to make the Caliber even better looking and feeling.

I hope they extend the plant to make room for more and maybe if mitsubishi asks for oney this time they will give it to them.


Edit:Oh and the srt-4 will deffinently stay out for atleast 3 years after it's introdution to give you enough time to buy it but act fast they will selll like hotcakes

I think the SRT-4 version will be around as long as they make the Caliber and will reside in the vehicle that will replace it years and years down the road.

They did expand the plant, spent 450 million dollars on it to be exact. 800 new robots that are just an awesome sight to see when the line is running, its almost like they are dancing. Added a ton of stuff to the paint shop (which, under the neon, was the best paint shop in the WORLD and they proudly display the awards to prove it). Our trim and Chassis departments have been totally redesigned to promote lean manufacturing so we can build more cars, faster, at less cost and keep the price low for our customers.

But to my knowledge, the last offical thing I heard, is we are done bailing out Mitsubishi. DCX owns 34% of them and I think by 2010 will control the company. Been a while since I read about it but its been a poorly managed car company for many years and is losing money hand over fist so, I doubt you'll see DCX giving much to Mitsubishi until then.

I have always wondered about DCX and Mitsubishi. There is a dealership around here and is considered a Dodge/ Mitsubishi dealership. Interesting!
