It's got more disclaimers than an ad for Cilais (e.g., "concept vehicle shown," prices are estimates, your mileage may vary...), but Dodge's sales portal for the 2007 Caliber has launched, allowing Net-enabled potential customers to do the old build-and-price trick. According to the site, the Neon replacement will be offered in three flavors: SE, SXT and R/T (no, there's no Hemi option). Estimated prices are $14,685 for the SE, $16,785 for the SXT and $18,885 for the R/T. The base powertrain is a 1.8-liter DOHC 16-Valve I4, linked to a five-speed manual. Optional engines include a 2.0L DOHC 16-Valve I4 ($150), 2.0L DOHC 16-Valve I4 turbo diesel, sourced from VW ($5,400!), and a surprising gas-electric hybrid ($3,520). Optional transmissions include four-Speed autobox ($935), continuously variable transaxle (CVT) ($1,100) and CVT with AutoStick ($1,265). We'll have more info on the hybrid option when we get it. [Thanks to Adam for the tip.]

[Update: According to a Dodge rep, the hybrid-drive option in the Build and Price configurator is for market research purposes, to judge market demand. Kind of a fake out, no?]
