Is the Dodge Caliber an SUV?

My neighbor is selling a Dodge Caliber, but I don’t know much about the model itself. It has a great price, so I’m intrigued by the thought of buying it. Is the Dodge Caliber an SUV or something else?

A great question! Despite its appearance, the Dodge Caliber is not an SUV. It’s actually a compact hatchback or small station wagon, although it’s on the larger side compared to some of the other hatchbacks on the market.
Some of the top features of the Dodge Caliber include:
  • 158-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine
  • Up to 32 mpg
  • Manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT)
  • Heated and cooled cup holders
  • Nine-speaker audio system
If you’re satisfied with the price and the test drive, the next thing to do before you buy is to shop for car insurance. Download the
