I cančt believe they opted out of a limited slip..

either way, if FWD turbo rides were still my bag Id be all over it (like I was my old Neon SRT4).

I was reading that article the other day. I am really surprised that Dodge didn't go with a AWD or RWD format. I'd take RWD over FWD any day of the week.

But it does sound like a fun little car to drive around.

The platform doesn't go RWD. But AWD is even offered in the regular Caliber. The componentry must not be up to the turbo fours torque.

I've seen a couple of these around Detroit recently. Might be manufacturer cars.

Yeah the current Caliber AWD platform can't handle the power. I wouldn't be surprised to see AWD SRT4 Calibers in a couple of years though.
