Heated mirrors? It's still a Europe only option. Green? Never been a green Caliber before though...
Coolness for you!

I think the 2010 R/T is going to have a Power 6 way Drivers seat as standard also.

Looks like a data error. That R/T code comes up for a 2008 on a search.

With the SRT4 2.4 Turbo having been dropped, it looks like no more 2.4 Calibers!

The 2010 is 2.0l only in SXT or SE in 5 speed manual OR CVT.

The 2010 Caliber model codes are:
PMDH49/24A SE CVT
PMDH49/2BA SE 5sp
PMDH49/24D SXT CVT
PMDH49/2BD SXT 5sp

What these crooked used car salesman will do is..........When you trade your SRT4 in, they will say "it's not worth much because they don't make them anymore". If you try to buy one from a used car lot, the used car salesman will say "it's worth a lot because they don't make them anymore" LOL!!!

For those interested, the EPA ratings for the Caliber with 2.0L engine and 5-speed manual are out, 23 MPG city, 31 MPG highway. http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/comp...make=Dodge&model=Caliber&hiddenField=Findacar

So 1 less in the city and 1 more on the highway compared to the 1.8L engine, not bad for a 2.0L engine in a tall, not especially aerodynamic and heavy car. I'm curious if the ratings of the CVT will increase, because telling people they'll lose 4 MPG on the highway by going with an automatic may not be a strong selling point.

Wonder why Dodge have not put in the MY10 2.0 CVT for a rating?

It will be a long wait for MY10 orders:

"No Calibers are expected to be produced until January 2010, with the lines running the Compass and Patriot alone."

The Calibers will have the oval outer vents like the Jeep, doesn't make sense to keep the rectangular ones in the center.

If I'd have to guess, I'd say it's because the 2.0L with 5-speed is a new combination, so they were in the lab playing with it and passing tests needed to get it certified on the many norms and standards concerning powertrains. They just had an opportunity to do the EPA test right there and then and did it. Just my guess though.

I looked at the previous years and continuing models still need a rerating for the MY EPA Sticker.

Another guess might be that they have made enough MY09 2.0 CVT Calibers in inventory so have no foreseeable plans to make any MY10s.

On the '09s, the Avenger with the regular auto and the 2.4 L engine gets nearly the same or better milage on the highway than the Caliber 2.0 L with the CVT tranny.

Avenger
SE/SXT
2.4L, 4-speed auto

9.7L/100 km City​

6.6L/100 km Hwy​






2009 Dodge Caliber
SE/SXT
2.0L, CVT auto

9.0L/100 km City​

7.3L/100 km Hwy​
