Can Dodge succeed locally?

http://drive.com.au/editorial/articl...f=2&bg=32&pp=0

Dodge plans on releasing the Caliber between $25K ad $35K and have it compete with the Mazda3 and Golf. I thought Chrysler wouldve learnt from the Neon....

While it's not AS vomit inducing in real life as opposed to initial pictures, I still don't think it's the right direction for the segment; styling wise at least. Some of the features are actually pretty cool, I just wish it looked more sport compact and not like a hideous truck crossover.

Well theres been too much emphasis on the headlights, thats for sure. It seems to be a common theme in US styled cars

In such a market (Upspec Hatches) buyers will always go euro. simple.

compact 4WD's they may stand a chance, but not against Jeep - if people want an American 4WD thats what they get, essentially.

Muscle cars are a moot point unless the exchange rate becomes favourable.

Maybe fix that front end up and it might look alright.

Bring back the valiant
