Here's a link to ALLPAR's test drive of the new SRT-4 Caliber. If only Chrysler LLC would put this 285HP engine in an AWD/4WD Compass, we might just give it some respect and Chrysler LLC could salvage their mistake.

It would be kind of cool to see that engine in the Patriot, too, but, I'm guessing that would be a real longshot...

My dealer has a couple of the Rally editions of the Compass that I think looks better than the regular Compass. If they were to build a SRT turbo/awd version I would consider it as a daily driver. It would kind of marry my love of Jeeps and my love of the original 2.2 turbos in one package.

The Compass could have been a great competitor to the Subaru WRX and Mitsu Lancer, but DC completely missed the ball. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next 18 months with our beloved Jeep brand.

Agreed. If they would have made this a WRC fighter (and actually competed with it) it would have made all the sense in the world. But they missed the boat, and now we're stuck with this hunk o' tin.
