The Dodge Avenger has been a strong contender in the midsize sedan segment for quite a while now, but after more than six years in production we might see an all-new Avenger for 2015. Production of the 2014 Avenger will end in late 2013, so unless the Avenger skips a year an all-new model is a sure thing.
Starting at N/A
There are no official details on the next-gen Avenger, except for the fact that it will share its basic structure with the upcoming second generation Chrysler 200 sedan. As the midsize sedan segment becomes more competitive, Dodge is undoubtedly aiming to make the new 2015 Avenger the king of the segment. That means we can expect a car with great fuel economy, a bold design, impeccable refinement, and a bit of the high-performance spirit that defines the Dodge lineup.
The 2015 Dodge Avenger will likely be offered with at least two engine options. The standard engine will most likely be a 2.4L Tigershark engine capable of delivering at least 172 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. A Pentastar V6 engine will likely be an available upgrade, with expected output of more than 280 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Dodge’s all-new nine-speed automatic transmission will also come standard, and may be capable of offering fuel efficiency ratings near 40 mpg.
The new Avenger will likely get a performance boost with high-powered SRT model. For drivers looking for a sportier sedan but who aren’t interested in paying for the full-fledged SRT version, there will likely be a performance-oriented upgrade package available with features like aerodynamic enhancements, retuned suspension, and bigger wheels.
