Dodge's smallest car continues to offer a broad range of models, from the economical to the flat-out sporty. The base version offers a 132-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the R/T adds a higher-powered 2.0-liter that produces 150 horses, and includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes and sportier steering and suspension systems. The top SRT-4 model provides high performance on a budget by virtue of its 230-horsepower turbocharged 2.4-liter engine and club-race-ready suspension, among other upgrades. A five-speed manual transmission is standard across the line, and a three-speed automatic is available. Only relatively minor changes are on tap for 2005.
