They aren't releasing any pictures it seems.

Was wondering if anyone had any inside info.

Dodge's advertising is horrible ! They put the Caliber out there, and gave it practicly zero advertising support !
It's not FoMoCo nor GM that is eating up Mother-MOPAR , it's the flood of Asian cars coming here, or being made here.

I sold DODGE for "only" 25 years (1968-1992. The advertising used to be very good, but the last decade, it's hardly memorable.

Selling Dodge (and Plymouth) was ALWAYS a challenge to do. Not like selling a Toyopet !

I've got friends at the Belvidere Plant. Its going to look like a cross between the Neon & the Fiat 500. Going to be much smaller than the old Dart....

There are a couple disguised pics on Google. Rumor has it 40 MPG and with a 9 speed transmission. Talk about a repair nightmare. 1.4Liter, turbocharged 4 cylinder rated at 168 HP.

It's an Alfa Romeo, so in keeping with Chrysler tradition, will likely be in the shop a lot...

I am glad to see a return of the old nameplate. Hopefully, they can sell a bunch of them.

Yeah, the GTO was a disappointment. Fast engine in a Camry body. WTF were they thinking?

I wouldn't call the Charger a fizzle. Four-doors or not, its has been a hit for Dodge in terms of sales.

Bingo Mike.....

Great drivetrain - horrible body. Looked very close to a grand Am or a grand prix....... Pontiac could've hit a home run with that if they would've taken the same stance that Ford has with the Mustang, Cheby with the camaro, and dodge with the challenger. And THAT might have been enough to get people in Pontiac showrooms to buy their cars. Sadly, the one car at the end that Pontiac got right was the G8, and then poof - gone.
