 Dodge Caliber
This new Caliber is not simply a re-badged version of its predecessor, the Neon, but is a whole new car from top to bottom, and packs a whole new drivetrain, including a new joint-effort engine lineup titled the “World Engine”, built by Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance, with the engine plant being located in Dundee, Michigan.
The Caliber RT is expected to come equipped with a naturally aspirated 2.4 liter building a 170 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque.
Under normal driving condition, the Caliber AWD system is literally only front wheel drive, but should there be a call for all wheel drive, such as loss of traction and sudden increased wheel speed of one or both front wheels, the system engages the rear wheels for increased drive wheel traction.

 Dodge Caliber Ad Campaign Has Dual Role
Caliber needs the boost because it is a new nameplate, and because its target customer likely never has set foot in a Dodge showroom before.
And the target audience for the Caliber’s message includes the most discerning media consumers: bold, hip, urbanites between 25 and 35 years old who spend an inordinate amount of time online or playing video games and get their news from sources such as “The Daily Show,” which stars irreverent comic Jon Stewart.
Again, given Caliber’s newness to the market as well as the brand, a powertrain message was considered too complex for mass media marketing, Murphy says.

Dodge can offer better cars and make more money, no one would question them as they are not selling eco sedans.
The only real problem I see for Dodge is that their cheapest car won't be all that cheap.
Still, for the Caliber to compete succesfully with these two, it would have to either equal/surpass the Mazda3 in engine responsiveness and handling agility, or equal/surpass the Matrix in hauling capacity, driveline options and safety advantages (crash tests, ESC, etc.).
