ok guys/gals i was talking to a friend sunday about a caliber that he just bought....really nice car. anyways he said that the dealership was telling him about the srt model that was soon to come....i said " ya i know 300 hp and turbo..it's going to be sweet" he says.. "ya and all wheel drive". i said " you mean the r/t model right?" he said "no they told me the srt will be awd". i know that this is 2nd hand info, buy my fingers and toes crossed! :cool:

It will NOT be awd, so un-cross your extremities.

And search before you ask. If you look under the Caliber SRT-4 subforum, you'll see several threads about this. But yes, a 300hp AWD Caliber would be badass.

IMHO, I would not even want a Caliber SRT unless it is AWD. The car needs AWD to make it a real performance vehicle. The high center of gravity, and torque steer from 300 ponies will make this beast unmanageable. There are several other vehicles that will do a much better job of performing in the same price range. Oh sure, it will sell as a FWD and people who get one will praise the vehicle, but they'll get smoked on the road and at Khana's by just about any other vehicle in the same class.
