Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, though the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a great bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose those that are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs could be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Top Dodge Caliber Release. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Top Dodge Caliber Release is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to select from.
As has been the case for some time, you will get the Top Dodge Caliber Release with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly Top Dodge Caliber Release Hybrid. On the highway, the Top Dodge Caliber Release is comfortable and compliant. Top Dodge Caliber Release also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Top Dodge Caliber Release with a little extra personality. Inside, the Top Dodge Caliber Release supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose among the upper trim levels. There are many of options to select from across the way.
The Top Dodge Caliber Release can be as competent because they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a bit more class and space than the usual small sedan, the Top Dodge Caliber Release might just be the sedan for you.
The Top Dodge Caliber Release is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Top Dodge Caliber Release Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features found on the upper trim levels may be added to the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Top Dodge Caliber Release stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Top Dodge Caliber Release has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so that the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
