23 mpg city, 27 highway (2.0 CVT); 22/27 (2.4 CVT); 24/32 (2.0 manual)
Compared to most other compact cars, the 2012 Dodge Caliber has EPA fuel economy ratings that might be called dismal. Ranging from 22 to 24 in the city and 27 to 32 on the highway, they're lower than those of many mid-size sedans; you could do better with a number of taller, heavier compact crossovers as well.
In short, the Caliber just isn't very green, especially when you compare it to other cars its size. Stay tuned, though, as the 2013 Dodge Dart that's due to replace it will likely do much better.
The 2012 Dodge Caliber is much thirstier than other small cars, and you'll need to pony up quite a bit more for fuel.
