Dodge updates the Avenger for 2011

Dodge updates the Avenger for 2011

Dodge has presented its facelifted 2011 Avenger. For this model year the mid-size sedan model gets an all-new interior, a redesigned exterior and enhanced performance. Thanks to new engine lineup and the completely redesigned and retuned suspension drivers will be able to experience new sensations on-board the front-wheel-drive mid-size sedan.

In terms of exterior design the 2011 Dodge Avenger receives new clean, smooth aggressive lines. Its fascia now features the new signature Dodge Brand “split crosshair” grille. An aggressive lower fascia completes the Dodge look from top to bottom.

The new Dodge Avenger receives a new and enhanced engine lineup, which starts with a standard 2.4-liter World Gas Engine, mated with a new smooth-shifting six-speed transmission that delivers a more fuel-efficient drive. Dodge customers can also opt for the new Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that combines power (283 hp) and torque of 352 Nm of torque with competitive fuel economy.

Engineers at Dodge have retuned or redesigned virtually every part of the suspension for 2011, including 26 of 30 suspension bushings. Having completely rethought the suspension and the geometry, the track is now an inch wider, tire width has been increased from 215 to 225 millimeters and the vehicle is 12 millimeters lower in the front and 6 millimeters in the rear for a more aggressive posture.

The 2011 Dodge Avenger also received a completely new interior design, conceived by Chrysler Group LLC’s Interior Design Studio. It includes an all-new instrument panel, bezels, gauge faces and new Dodge steering wheel, completely transforming the driver seat into a cockpit-like experience.

Designers developed the 2011 Dodge Avenger with new “soft touch” armrests and instrument panels, new, premium interior finishes for touch points that are not only pleasing to the touch but also to the eye.

Having sold more than 1.6 million vehicles in 2009, the standard mid-size sedan segment is the largest vehicle segment in the United States. According to the brand the “2011 Dodge Avenger is uniquely positioned as an alternative for consumers looking for a sedan with more style, personality and performance.”

The 2011 Dodge Avenger will be built at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Sterling Heights, Mich., and will arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter this year.
