The 2008 Dodge Caliber SE comes standard with a slew of air bags and a smattering of gadgets. Its $14,000 price point places it squarely in the middle of the entry-level market it's targeting, but with more style and available options than many of its rivals. Buyers who opt for higher horsepower, more speakers, and all-wheel drive can still spend less than $23,000.
