The North American based automaker Dodge has ended production on his Caliber model last week, after five years.
Being introduced on the auto market back in 2006 as a replacement for the Dodge Neon, the Dodge Caliber has recently ended production. Even if there is no official word from the car manufacturer regarding the production of the Dodge Caliber, detroitnews.com says that the compact vehicle won’t roll off the assembly line anymore. Our source is also telling us that Fiat might develop a replacement for the Dodge Caliber and the company already has a model with this recipe, the new Dodge Dart, which is based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
“It’s the last of the American bottom-feeder compacts. That’s what they were. It came from thinking, ‘small cars, small profits’. In the case of Chrysler, it started during the Mercedes mismanagement of the company. Then Cerberus got involved and had no idea what they were doing with this car. I would be surprised if the Dart doesn’t come close to tripling Caliber sales in the first year, said analyst Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics LLP in the thedetroitnews.com report.
As a reminder, the Dodge Caliber is a compact car made by Chrysler, being introduced in the spring of 2006 as a 2007 model year. The Caliber is a five-door hatchback but because of its height ride it’s sometimes considered to be a crossover or even a station wagon. The Caliber has a front engine and a front-wheel drive / all-wheel drive layout, being made on the Chrysler PM/MK platform.
