The Dodge Caliber has remained relatively unchanged for several years, and this will continue to be the case for 2012. The Rush version calls on a 172-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder engine while all other trims use the smaller 2.0L 4-cylinder that delivers 158 hp and 141 lbs.-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 5-speed manual unless you opt for the CVT.
