The 2009 Dodge Avenger combines bold, aggressive Dodge styling with innovative interior features, high levels of safety and reliability, exhilarating performance and excellent fuel efficiency of 30 miles per gallon on the highway.

Many unique features set Dodge Avenger apart in the extremely competitive mid-size segment. These features include: uconnect phone with Bluetooth technology, uconnect tunes, uconnect gps and uconnect studios; Chill Zone, a storage compartment in the top of the instrument panel that holds up to four 12-ounce cold beverage cans; heated/cooled front cupholder; Stain-resistant Seat Fabric with three key benefits: repels stains, controls odor and reduces static electricity; heated cloth seats.

Three engine options power 2009 Dodge Avenger: the standard 2.4-liter 173-horsepower four-cylinder World Engine, available Flex Fuel Vehicle 2.7-liter 186-hp V-6 engine and an available 235-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engine coupled with a six-speed automatic transaxle with Auto Stick.

The Dodge Avenger’s six-speed automatic provides quicker standing-start acceleration than a four- or five-speed transaxle because of its numerically higher first-gear ratio. A robust differential with increased torque capacity enhances launch performance by requiring less torque management, electronically limiting the torque that is available during the initial stages of standing-start acceleration.

Base model estimated mpg: 21/30
