On a ROLL... TWO MORE new vids!!!

Not as great as the last find, but HOLY CRAP take a look at the extreme close-ups of the damn SEATS!!! MAN I want to plant my ass in THOSE!

http://video.howstuffworks.com/WMP/player.htm?v=2008_Dodge_Caliber_SRT4

VERY weird how they keep on referring to the Caliber SRT-4 as a 2008 model. That would be VERY nice to see, since a 2007 model coming out in the Spring of 2007 isn't the greatest, the car will already be a "year" old and you wouldn't have even got the chance to OWN it a year...

This second video was posted on here a long time ago but is gone... It shows the Caliber SRT4 driving around turns... you can hear the car REALLY loud.

Enjoy...

Another shot of the famous SRT seats! I want to sit in those now! The first video had a nother nice shot of the interior. I think that if this is a 2008 model it would be a sweet idea. Cmon Dodge bring this out asap! And please update the canadian site!

Probably because the car was going 20MPH LOL and didn't let off going 55MPH, that is when we will probably get the "pop" sound.;)

It would be nice to see a similar video done in DRY driving conditions, so it can be demonstrated a bit more aggressively -- cuz that's the point, right!?!? Sure it sounds nice n growly, but watching it navigate slushy (and slippery?) roads at 20mph(?) was kind of a letdown.

Yada, yada, yada. If I wanted a station wagon, I would've asked for a station wagon. Sure, it has a nice, loud exhaust note - very throaty, especially as it's babied through the turns in the winter sleet - and it looks kinda sexy, as sexy station wagons go. But Daimler-Chrysler's lost me on this one. At least for now, that is. Maybe by 2008 I'll get used to the shape of the thing and, hell, by that time, I'll be 66 years old, and will probably be ready for a REAL station wagon, like an SRT-8 Magnum.

I'm in the market for a car to replace my lovely little 2005 SRT-4 right now. Probably by late summer I'll have 50K on the clock and it'll be time. As far as
Daimler/Chrysler is concerned, they're down the road. It'll probably be a Subaru STI or a Mitsubishi EVO. Brand loyalty? Who? Me? I'll show brand loyalty when a brand shows "loyalty" to me. Corporations don't show "loyalty." They just show a good "bottom line." If my tastes in cars runs parallel to their bottom line, then we've got a deal.

Ciao for niao!

car corporations dont owe you anything. a lot of people willl like the new srt-4, a lot of people wont. you happen to be one of those who dont like it. get over it. it is impossible for company to make a car that everyone will like.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm over it. I would bet, however, that the Caliber will not be the runaway seller that D/C hopes it will be. They very well might sell a bunch of SRT-4 versions, but I'm inclined to doubt whether or not they'll achieve their sales goals, even on the hot-rodded model. I'm not just disappointed in D/C. I wish Toyota built a "SRT-4"/WRX/Evo type of car. They build great cars and they have the wherewithall to do the job. But they've concentrated on the IL359 Lexus instead, choosing to go with the "luxo-sport" crowd instead of the "working man's" factory hot rod crowd.

What I'd hoped for was an improved version of the Neon, that is, a simple, four door sedan, instead of an all new, razzle-dazzle Mr Macho hatchback thing like the Caliber. If I were Mr. Chrysler or Herr Daimler, I would've brought back the original low priced factory hot rod nameplate for a new SRT-4 sedan, and called it "The Roadrunner." But then again, I'm not Herr Daimler or Mr. Chrysler.

You're right about car companies not building cars to please everyone. Very few do. But some seem to do a better job of it than others. Honda comes readily to mind.

i would disagree with you there. honda does make a lot of nice cars for people that just want to go from point A to point B, but when it comes to performance car enthusiasts, i dont think honda has them covered. dodge seems to care of that group, with a SRT version of most cars they make.

..and there I was wondering if that growl was audio-fake or not. If they'd set it park/neutral and pumped the engine a couple of times, I would have been more excited. Anyway, it was a so-so video in the less-than-favorable weather. You'd think that the video shoot would have been done on a DRY day. After all, they're advertising an SRT-4, right?!

Tyke,

I would think that a wise marketing exec would show it in BOTH, and perhaps under a reasonably-selected variety of other conditions.

Yeh, I understood that. I'm just anxious.
