Auburn Hills, Mich. , Sep 14, 2010 - Dodge Caliber is a versatile five-door compact vehicle with a distinctive coupe-like profile that projects the strength, stance and functionality of a sport-utility vehicle (SUV). With a lengthy list of standard features rarely found on entry-level compact vehicles, including side-curtain air bags, Chill Zone™ cooled-beverage storage bin, Uconnect® Phone with voice command, iPod control, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, remote keyless entry and highway fuel economy of up to 32 mpg, the 2011 Dodge Caliber offers consumers a small-footprint vehicle with the right amount of attitude that’s also fun to drive.

The 2011 Dodge Caliber is built with the customer’s personal style in mind with the choice of five models packaged to fit a variety of lifestyles: Express, Mainstreet, Uptown, Heat and Rush.

Customers who like to drive and want a sensible, sporty ride will find that the 2011 Dodge Caliber Express model has everything they want. It offers consumers value, efficiency and safety coupled with many standard, innovative and useful features, proving that practical doesn’t have to be boring. It’s powered by the fuel-efficient 2.0-liter dual overhead cam (DOHC) I-4 World Gas Engine with dual variable-valve timing (VVT) that produces 158 horsepower (118 kW) and 141 lb.-ft. (191 N•m) of torque and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. This engine gets an estimated 32 mpg on the highway.

The 2011 Dodge Caliber Mainstreet is a versatile, all-around performer with something for everyone. It is nicely equipped with features a consumer needs, but nothing they don’t. The Mainstreet is a comfortable, safe vehicle that gets the consumer where they need to go, is fun to drive and stands out from the competition. The Mainstreet model’s standard features include 17-in. aluminum wheels, touring suspension, front fog lamps and a rear 60/40 reclining seat. The Dodge Caliber Mainstreet also is powered by the 2.0-liter DOHC I-4 World Gas Engine mated to the continuously variable transmission II (CVT2).

Compact-car buyers looking for upscale style and fuel efficiency need look no further. The 2011 Dodge Caliber Uptown provides a posh package of amenities in a fuel-efficient, useful vehicle that offers safety and security without sacrificing practicality. It is well equipped with premium features—nine Boston Acoustics speakers, including subwoofer, touring suspension, leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather-trimmed bucket seats. Consumers have a choice of powertrains: the 2.0-liter DOHC I-4 World Gas Engine or the 2.4-liter DOHC dual VVT World Gas Engine that produces 172 horsepower (128 kW) and 165 lb.-ft. (224 N•m) of torque mated to the CVT2.

Customers who want more performance with sporty style and attitude, both inside and out, can get their performance nicely packaged in the 2011 Dodge Caliber Heat. With a sport-tuned suspension, Auto Stick, 18-in. polished-aluminum wheels, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), performance steering, sport appearance group, a choice of either the 2.0-liter DOHC I-4 World Gas Engine or the 2.4-liter DOHC dual VVT World Gas Engine mated to either the CVT2 or the five-speed manual transmission, it’s spirited transportation with maximum versatility.

The 2011 Dodge Caliber Rush is a performance-oriented compact vehicle that doesn’t sacrifice safety or functionality. With many standard features, including a unique five-speed manual transmission mated to the 2.4-liter World Gas Engine, an SRT-designed spoiler, heated front seats, sport suspension and all-season performance tires, the Dodge Caliber Rush infuses customers’ commutes with performance and attitude.

Dodge Caliber’s available two World Gas Engine offerings (2.0- and 2.4-liter) provide class-leading horsepower (158 and 172 horsepower, respectively). Chrysler World Gas Engines feature dual VVT and an intake manifold design with flow control valves on the 2.4-liter engine, both firsts for a Chrysler compact car and typically found only on more expensive vehicles. Combined, these features produce more power, better fuel economy and smoother, quieter operation than engines without them.

I know i'd bump this thread instead of starting a new one. Along the lines of this same idea, im also a caliber owner and a few questions triggered in my mind as i saw this post. I had my SXT was that it felt the same way, like a lockup converter, but at city speeds. I assume it's normal but it just feels odd. Another thing is the shifter. it's my hobdy to lay my hands on the shifter but i does not shift upon reaching 60mph...
