Overview of 2012 Dodge Caliber SXT Plus By Eric Tallberg
Essentially sharing top billing with its SXT sibling in the 2012 Dodge Caliber trim lineup is the Caliber SXT Plus. This 5-passenger, 5-door compact hatchback wagon comes in front-wheel- drive (FWD) only and offers 47.4 cubic feet of total cargo area, while a sport-tuned suspension gives it a tad more panache on the road.
Outside, look for a standard rear spoiler, 18-inch polished alloy wheels and heated power-adjustable mirrors, while the cabin boasts upgraded cloth upholstery, sport-oriented gauges and switches, reclining rear seats, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a fold-flat front passenger seat. Then there are such added standard goodies as a chilled beverage container, cruise control, tilt-wheel steering, air conditioning and front and rear floor mats. Standard entertainment, of course, remains a 66-watt stereo with MP3-capable single-CD player, 4 speakers and satellite radio.
Of all the optional equipment for this top-shelf Caliber, probably the most noteworthy is a 368-watt Boston Acoustics system that boasts 9 Surround Sound speakers including a pair of articulating tailgate speakers, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls.
Further options include upgraded Uconnect infotainment with Bluetooth hands-free calling, a 6.5-inch display, 30GB hard drive and rear-seat DVD entertainment. Hard-drive-based navigation is also available, as is a power sunroof, each in standalone form, while a couple of optional Security Group packages add daytime running lights, front side-mounted airbags, remote engine start, a remote antitheft alarm and a trailer wiring harness.
The ubiquitous 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine with variable valve timing (VVT) remains the sole powerplant offering in the 2012 Caliber SXT Plus. Mated with the standard 5-speed manual transmission, the four-banger is good for 158 hp and 141 lb-ft of torque, with mileage estimated at 24 mpg city/32 highway. Furthermore, a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available in this flagship trim for added convenience, but mileage falls to 23/27. Finally, towing with either transmission is maxed out at 1,500 pounds with the proper equipment installed.
Standard safety features for the 2012 Caliber SXT Plus, meantime, include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags and front head restraint whiplash protection. Front fog/driving lights also come standard, while the aforementioned Security Group packages are offered as optional safety items.
This overview covers the SXT Plus trim only.
