Dodge stops selling Nitro, Caliber in UK

Here in their homeland, the Dodge Caliber and Nitro can't get much lovin' from critics, but parent Chrysler has gone and kicked the two models right out of the UK altogether. Hitting up Dodge.co.uk shows but a single vehicle, the Journey, for sale in Blighty. Even the seven-passenger MPV, seemingly well suited to the UK market, has been struggling to find buyers, and the model has had its lineup rejiggered with more standard equipment added to entice addtional prospects.

Try as it might, Chrysler just hasn't been able to close enough sales of the Nitro and Caliber in the UK. Things must be slightly better on The Continent, as consumers can still find the two exiles available on Dodge's websites for such far-flung locales as Russia, France, and our favorite, Italy's Dodge.it. Company officials tell Autoblog that the "Caliber [is] still sold in most all continental European markets, Nitro [is] for sale in most major markets there."

I didn't even know they sold the Nitro in the UK. I can't imagine it did very well over there.

I guess the phrase "RICHARD! Mind the Caliber!" will no longer be uttered. Pity.:)
