If any new "crossover" vehicle screams "station wagon!!" it's gotta be the Ford Freestyle.superbang said:have people just stopped using the word station wagon? i mean it's all the caliber, mazda protogé 5, subaru anything are. the matrix, vibe, mazda 3 are all still stubby stationwagons... but that's allthey are aren't they? hatchback, wagon, sport tourer it doesn't really matter what we call it, just that we like it. and i like it a lot!
fair enough. i still think my .50cal is a station wagon and i still will/love it.DodgeGirlKathy said:If any new "crossover" vehicle screams "station wagon!!" it's gotta be the Ford Freestyle.
Other than that one, I don't think crossovers or 5-doors look anything like station wagons. For example the Ford Focus has both a 5-door model and a wagon. You can tell the difference immediately.
Better example.... SRT8 Jeep Grand Cherokee... furthest from a sports car you can get... lolSilverfox said:SRT doesn't always mean "sports car." The Street and Racing Technologies division of Dodge takes stock Dodge vehicles and tunes them to be faster. The Viper SRT-10 is an example of this, as is the Ram SRT-10. The Ram isn't a sports car, obviously. It's a tuned version of the Ram. The SRT-4 was a turbocharged version of the Neon. The Caliber SRT-4 is going to be the same thing, a turbocharged version of the Caliber.
No, the Caliber is not a SUV. It's officially a crossover, but it's more like a sedan. The Caliber SRT-4 is going to be pretty quick for what it is. 300 horsepower is nothing to sneeze at.
It IS the replacement. Dodge just went a different direction with chassis and body type as the Neon's sales were steadily declining.Ribs said:Nice responses guys. And that picture really shows that it isn't that big. I guess I was just under the impression that the caliber srt-4 was supposed to be the replacement for the old neon srt-4. If it isn't then why did they stop making neon srt-4s!
By the way is it still possible to get a new old one or are they pretty much all sold out?
