    The Dodge SRT-4 is a turbocharged car introduced by DaimlerChrysler's Street and Racing Technology (SRT) in-house tuner group (originally known as PVO for Performance Vehicle Operations) in 2003 and sold under the Dodge marque. SRT stands for "Street and Racing Technology", and the "4" in the SRT-4's name denotes the number of cylinders of the engine. ACR and Commemorative Edition models were later introduced as well. The SRT-4 was marketed towards the racing and muscle car crowd, as well as designed to attract younger buyers who had previously only considered owning Japanese sport compacts. Dodge Press Release
    Dodge, through its aftermarket parts distributor Mopar, also offers many performance enhancements for the SRT-4, from suspension bits to turbocharger-upgrade kits.
    During its three years of production, the SRT-4 was the leading vehicle in its class, producing performance numbers equal or better than sports cars costing 2-to-3 times as much. The car was also a sales and marketing success for Dodge, with sales of over 25,000 units in less than three years of production. DaimlerChrysler expected to produce no more than 10,000 SRT-4s. [1]
    Built in Belvidere, Illinois with 84% US content, the SRT-4 differed from the Neon, the model on which it was based, in many ways. From the outside, the SRT-4's unique front fascia was immediately noticeable. It also featured a large rear wing, unique rear fascia, side skirts, unique hood featuring a functional hood scoop, and special 17x6 inch wheels (16x7 BBS racing wheels on ACR model). Beyond aesthetics, the cars entire powertrain, suspension, braking system, exhaust, and much of the interior differed from the Neon.
    Under the hood was a turbocharged 2.4-liter straight-4 gasoline engine. This engine first appeared in the United States one year earlier in the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser GT, but had been used in the Mexican-market Dodge Stratus and Chrysler Cirrus LXi sedan for a few years before this. The SRT-4 used a New Venture Gear T-850 five-speed manual transmission (based on the unit from the European turbodiesel minivans), equal-length half shafts, and a high-capacity Sachs performance clutch. The suspension used stiffer springs, special Tokico struts, larger sway bars front and rear, firmer bushings, an upgraded steering rack from the PT Cruiser GT, upgraded knuckles, and a unique K-member. 11.0 inch (279 mm) vented disc brakes (with extra-thick rotors to prevent warping) were used in front, with 10.6 in (270 mm) non-vented discs in the rear.
    Inside, the front seats featured enhanced lumbar and lateral support for performance driving, and a faux carbon fiber steering wheel shiftboot cover and satin silver "cue ball" shift knob were used. The gauges had special SRT faces and silver rings matching those on the climate controls. An Auto-Meter brand boost gauge was used as well.
    The 2004 model was updated with more power and torque, a torque-sensing Quaife limited-slip differential, larger fuel injectors, BF Goodrich KDW2 three-season ultra-high performance tires, and paint and trim changes. 2005 also featured new colors and the return of the American Club Racer (ACR) edition. The ACR package included wider BBS RX lightweight racing wheels with wider tires, 5-way adjustable Tokico Illumina shock absorbers, a stiffened suspension featuring a thicker rear sway bar, seats with pass-through slots for racing harnesses, officially allowed camber adjustment, and ACR logos on the exterior and embroidered on the front seats. A limited edition and numbered 2005 SRT-4 Commemorative Edition appearance package (in white with blue "Viper stripes") was also offered, but not with the ACR package.

    So what about those SRT-4 Calibers they're supposed to be doing? How can you market a mini-SUV to ricers?

    But at least the tC looks better than the Caliber. I'm such a Dodge fanboy (since the majority of my family worked there at some point in time including myself at a subsidiary for 1 day) but Dodge dropped the fuckin ball on this one. I would almost take a Cavalier over that car. ALMOST.
