2.4L Turbocharged Inline-4
It\'s time to recognize one of the biggest bang-for-the-buck cars now before the market catches up to it. This 2008 Dodge Caliber SRT4 is from the few short years that Mopar offered you one of the hottest turbo hatches to hit ever to hit the streets. And you get to enjoy the full blackout speed machine from a modern and loaded interior.
Mopar\'s SRT (Street Racing Technology) team are great at making speedy machines, and this Caliber is a prime example. The black paint and tinted windows give this a dark and mean attitude. The blackout look goes nicely with the sporty SRT upgrades like the heat extractor hood with a big scoop in the middle. There\'s also a deep chin spoiler, full bodykit, and rear roof spoiler. And those special SRT 19-inch wheels add a good shine while still looking fortified.
The interior has all the right sports car pieces you love. It starts with body-hugging front bucket seats with contrast red stitching. There\'s also an armrest center console, sports shifter, and a full set of white-faced gauges. It\'s also loaded with the best features, including a power sunroof, power windows, power locks, power steering, an alarm, the factory AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, and provisions for factory air conditioning (likely just needs a charge to blow cold again.) There\'s also modern safety with dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes. What\'s nice about a vehicle like this is that there\'s quite a practical side. There\'s good back seat room and easy access with the rear doors. Plus, as a true hatchback, it\'s easy to take along plenty of luggage or cargo. So you can see how a car like this can be justified by your practical side.
But your wild side will love what\'s under the hood. The 2.4-liter fuel-injected DOHC motor is the numbers-matching unit. These were the backbone for Chrysler pulling duty in everything, including Jeeps. That means they made them hardy, and that makes for a great place to start for a performance build. SRT upgraded the pistons, added forged connecting rods, and gave it variable valve timing. It was now ready for the Mitsubishi TD04 turbocharger and Valeo air-to-air intercooler. The package is listed at 285 horsepower, but some say it was underestimated, because it drives like an even MORE powerful machine. You get full control over it all with the six-speed manual transmission. The SRT team also upgraded the suspension and added a big four-wheel power disc brake package.
This is the kind of cool and powerful car that you know is going to be sought-after just like the first-gen Rabbit GTIs are now. So you get to have fun driving it today and watch the admiration grow over the years. But you only get to experience this SRT car if you\'re the first to grab this deal. Call today!!!
