Hey guys,

I dont know if anyone else has seen this yet, but, I was in the local dealership today talking to a family friend of mine who showed me a booklet sent to the dealers by Chrysler.

It had a page about the SRT4 version of the Caliber... there were two interesting points in this book,

a.) SRT4 Caliber posters are going to be sent to the dealership at the end of March, so people who are interested can probably swipe some.

and;

b.) a line that said "EXPECT TO SEE DODGE CALIBER SRT-4 IN SHOWROOMS, SPRING 2007"

I dont know if this is JUST for Canada or not, but it looks like we're going to have to wait until next spring to get our first glances of this car... in person anyway :(

As far as I know, they haven't begun building the engines yet. SRT parts are also starting to be made. Spring sounds a little late but it's probably closer to the actual date than we think. :(

At least spring 2007 isn't THAT bad, i'll have my current SRT4 paid off a lot more than it is, and i'll be out of college this October, that'll give me a bit of time to get a good paying job so i can PAY for the new Caliber. :)

Is this reliable tip? Insider source? It makes sense though. Who would want to buy a car in the last quarter of the 07 model year....And if they get these in production early, they can sell many this summer in the northern states. Economy, power, versatile vehicle, price?

I can guarantee you that production is not beginning for a long time on the SRT-4 Caliber. However, it is likely that the production line is being tooled up and pre-pilot cars are occasionally being run in isolated section of the pre-production status line.

Spring 07 does look like a reasonable release date, the SRT products do not follow the generally accepted release schedules, they are released when they are ready to be released.

This scenario is not at all unlike the orginal release of the SRT-4 Neon, I wonder which market will get it first this time, California?

But, you can play with one of the pre-pilot cars at the SRT Nationals this July....

See you in Topeka,
Dale

They aren't going to start building them in July. That schedule will slip into the next production calendar.
