What is the Dodge Caliber SXT’s top speed?

My son loves how fast some Dodge cars can go, but I obviously don’t want him to be driving one of those. Instead, I’ve been eyeing a used Caliber that I think could be a good compromise for both of us! How fast can the Dodge Caliber SXT go?

A used car is a great first vehicle for your young driver, and this Caliber could easily do the trick for your compromise. The Dodge Caliber SXT has a top speed of 119 to 123 mph depending on the model year.
A 2012 Dodge Caliber SXT—the final model year—uses a 2.0-L four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable transmission for:
  • 158 horsepower
  • 141 lb-ft of torque
  • A 0-to-60 acceleration time of 9.2 seconds
Hopefully, your son will never try to put that acceleration time to the test. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives all Dodge Calibers a 3-star overall safety rating (out of 5 stars). You may want to look for something with a better rating if you’re especially concerned for your son’s safety.
