Actually, there is a new market in the Auto industry called a mini-SUV. Gaining alot of market share, started in the US with the Susuki Side-kick. Toyota came out with a more refined version, the RAV-4 which sells well. DCX decided to get into the market. The Caliber is the first of 3, possibly 4 vehicles we are gonna launch in this market.

The Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot are the other 2, all should be on the market in 07. You will be able to get both jeeps Trail rated.

Although it has a very large following, and was still selling well, believe me, I helped to build tons of them, the industry has set a model's life at 10 years. The Neon was built for 13. It just went past its span and was time to move on. I've been told at HQ that the Caliber will be EPA rated at 35 mpg. Thats huge and coupled with the AWD, be a big seller in the market. Expect Toyota and the other transplants to answer this car in the near future.
