2007 Dodge Caliber Review and Pictures

Car Show 2007 0472007 Dodge Caliber is an economical choice for your first car. With a starting MSRP of $14,135, it certainly caught my eye when helping a friend research cars for her teenage daughter.

The 2007 Caliber looks like a cross between an SUV and a station wagon. It is sporty and roomy both—a great combination that is sure to make this economical car very popular with young drivers. I was very surprised at how much head and shoulder room the Caliber offers, and absolutely stunned by the rear passenger leg room.

The 2007 Dodge Caliber is equipped with four-cylinder engines developed as a joint venture with Mitsubishi, Hyundai, and DCX. Their goal was to give you the best fuel economy possible without compromising performance. You can choose from 148 horsepower, 158 horsepower, or 172 horsepower models along with two different transmission options: a five-speed manual transaxle transmission or a Jatco (Japanese developed) continuous variable transaxle (CVT) transmission. The benefit of the CVT engine is a reported seven percent savings in fuel consumption.
