The standard features vary depending on trim levels, but all 2008 Dodge Calibers come loaded with "a four-speaker AM/FM/CD/AUX sound system, sliding armrest with cellphone/MP3-player holder," and "illuminated cup holders," according to Kelley Blue Book. Moving up to the SXT trim, Edmunds reports that the standard features lists "adds 17-inch wheels, keyless entry, cruise control," and "a 115-volt outlet." The R/T trim of the 2008 Dodge Caliber "has all kinds of fun, innovative features," according to Mother Proof, including a "rear overhead cabin light [that] doubles as a rechargeable flashlight" and a "glove compartment that doubles as a chilled bottle holder." ConsumerGuide says that the R/T and SRT4 versions of the Dodge Caliber also come with a "Boston Acoustics sound system" and "liftgate speakers."
