I would love to see the replacement for the Caliber get 40+ mpg. As the proud owner of a 2008 Caliber SRT4 that gets 30+ hwy and 22+ city it shouldn't be too much to ask for a new Caliber that could get 40 mpg or more. I hope they keep the name as well. While Chrysler is at it, let's get a new SRT4 model also. It's the most bang for the buck out there. Mine turns the 1/4 mile in 14.7 seconds at 91+ mph. Not bad for a little bone stock 4 banger ! Can't wait to put a Stage 2 kit on it.
It makes sense that Dodge is rushing to offer an over 40mpg vehicle. High fuel efficiency seems to be the number one factor on every auto-manufacturer's mind right now and Dodge needs to do the same to keep up.
