2005 Dodge Neon - Price Quote

Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Neon.

The essence of the Dodge Neon is that it is fun-to-drive and it is a great value. Base models take care of the value part quite easily, rounding in with a pleasantly shocking price tag, while the SRT-4 will simply blow your socks off with its performance.

The SRT-4 just happens to be the second fastest of all the Dodge cars. It was given a power boost last year, reducing its 0-60 mph time to just 5.8 seconds.

With plenty to choose from, what are you waiting for?

Available Models
The 2005 Dodge Neon is offered in three model trims: SE, SXT and SRT-4.

Interior Features
The four-door 2005 Dodge Neon sits five passengers. But they might have to squeeze if they're large.

Base SE models are the value-oriented offering of the lot. Their standard package includes cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, a center console, cupholders and an AM/FM/cassette player.

Move up to the SXT and you get air conditioning, power mirrors, front windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and an AM/FM/CD player.

Exterior Features
The 2005 Dodge Neon SXT has a new SRT Design package for 2005. That it is expressive is an understatement, as it features a power bulge hood, new fog lamps complementing a unique front fascia and a dual exhaust and spoiler to highlight the rear fascia.

A MOPAR ground effects package may be added to create a sportier image and to enhance the vehicle's visual impact. In addition, an optional sport appearance package is available on vehicles equipped with the optional spoiler. The package includes unique 15-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, a unique color center stack and automatic shifter bezel with the automatic transaxle.

Under the hood of entry-level Neon SEs and midlevel SXTs is a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It produces 132 horsepower and an additional 130 lb-ft of torque. 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission are both available.

Then there's the SRT-4, which easily leaves the other two in the dust. Dodge engineers refined the engine calibration of the 2.4-liter intercooled turbo model, boosting the output to 230 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. The result is the type of speed mentioned above.

The 2005 SRT-4 also features a torque-sensing limited-slip differential as standard equipment, and it has specially tuned sport suspension and brakes.

Safety and Security
The 2005 Dodge Neon includes a LATCH child seat anchorage system, child-protection door locks and an emergency internal trunk lid release. Front side airbags are optional.
