Dodge dealers will be seeing the 2011 Dodge Avengers sometime between now and the end of the year. It will be getting an all new interior, redesigned exterior, and the option of better performance.

The new Avenger will come standard with a recalibrated version of the 2.4L  World Gas Engine, with the option of a six speed transmission. There is also the option of the new Pentastar V6 which puts out 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque with competitive fuel economy.

In addition to new tires, the suspension has also been completely retuned, resulting in a much more fun to drive vehicle with less body roll and shake, less noise, and more precise steering.

The Avenger’s “fun to drive” quotient rises exponentially for 2011 with a significantly upgraded suspension to give drivers agile, confident, handling performance in all driving situations, whether it’s a spirited adventure on twisty roads or an emergency maneuver. 

Dodge engineers retuned or redesigned virtually every part of the suspension for 2011, including 26 of 30 suspension bushings. The suspension and the geometry were completely rethought. The track is an inch wider, tire width increased from 215 to 225 millimeters, and the vehicle also sits lower to the ground, with a 12 millimeters lowered ride height on the front axle and 6 millimeters on the rear.

New exterior styling features clean, smooth aggressive lines. The new fascia sports the new signature Dodge Brand “split crosshair” grille, while an aggressive lower fascia completes the Dodge look from top to bottom.

The Chrysler Group LLC’s Interior Design Studio also worked its magic on the new 2011 Avenger. The all-new instrument panel, bezels, gauge faces and new Dodge steering wheel transform the driver seat into a cockpit-like experience. Upgraded seats incorporate more cushion material and revised spring geometry. Dodge Avenger also features several new two-tone interior color schemes, new leather and cloth seating materials and accent stitching. Owners can select from these schemes to design a vehicle that matches their lifestyle needs.

There’s no doubt, Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealers are excited about its arrival, as the standard mid-size sedan segment is the largest vehicle segment in the United States, with more than 1.6 million vehicles sold in 2009. The customers have spoken, and Dodge has listened and is stepping up their game!
