Dodge Avenger: Power, Safety, Value

If you’re shopping for a comfortable, value-packed sedan, here’s the star of the class: the 2013 Dodge Avenger.


We’ll start with the safety accolades. The Avenger is the “Top Safety Pick” of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the midsized sedan category. The Avenger is ranked “good” (the top score) in four criteria: rear impact/head restraint, roof strength, side impact, and moderate overlap front impact. The Avenger has earned this significant distinction for the past four years in a row.


Next is the Avenger’s award-winning available engine, the 3.6L Pentastar. Hailed as one of the most advanced engines in the industry today, this V6 packs a class-leading 283 hp and is standard in the Avenger SE V6, SXT, and R/T. America’s most powerful and affordable midsized sedan, the Avenger V6 is also EPA estimated at an economical 19 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway.


For even greater fuel economy, there’s the standard 2.4L four rated at 173 hp. With the four-speed automatic transmission, it’s rated at EPA estimated 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway, and EPA estimated 21/31 mpg with the available six-speed automatic.


Speaking of bang for your buck, the Avenger SE is loaded with standard features: power mirrors, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, premium cloth seats, speed control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated audio and speed controls, outside temperature display, and CD player with four speakers. How about that: luxury and value. The SXT and R/T models include even more features. And you’ll be pleased to know the Avenger is built right here in the USA at Chrysler’s Sterling Heights, Michigan, assembly plant.
