2011 Dodge Avenger Exterior

2011 Dodge Avenger Overview

Sharing a platform with the new Chrysler 200, the 2011 Dodge Avenger also gets a taste of the newness coming from Dodge these days with a new interior and a few exterior changes that help it to keep up with the times.

The midsize Avenger is outfitted with one of two available engines.  Standard is a 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder and optional is Chrysler’s new 283-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6.  Selecting the four-cylinder gets you a four- or six-speed automatic transmission, while the V-6 gets the six-speed box standard.  All Avengers come with front-wheel drive.  Competition includes other midsize sedans like the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, and Mazda6.

On the outside, the Avenger gets a slight makeover, adding a new crosshair grille, new taillights, and a reworked bumper.  Spruce up the exterior with options like fog lights, heated side mirrors, a sunroof, or a rear spoiler.  17-inch steel wheels come standard, while 17- or 18-inch aluminum wheels are optional.  If you opt for the V-6, the Avenger adds on dual exhaust tips for a sportier look.

Most of the work on the 2011 Avenger has gone into the interior, and the new cabin is a marked improvement over the outgoing one.  Hard plastics are out, and a reskinned dash and new softer touch points on the doors give the Avenger a touch of class.  Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, steering wheel audio controls, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, and an auxiliary audio input jack.  The Avenger’s interior can also be spruced up even more with options like a navigation system or a touch-screen audio system with music hard drive.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Avenger include all-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, front side-impact and side curtain airbags, and active front head restraints.

With many updates inside and out, the 2011 Dodge Avenger is ready to tackle the midsize competition.
