Chrysler pumps up Dodge Avenger

Chrysler Group is offering a 2012  Dodge Avenger SE V6 package, which was developed to be America's most affordable and powerful mid-size car, delivering  performance and value for driving enthusiasts. The new Avenger SE V6 model has a starting U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price  of  $21,495, excluding destination,  and is powered by a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 3.6-liter Pentastar engine produces a best-in-class 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque while achieving an EPA estimated 29 miles per gallon highway, best-in-class for a V-6-powered mid-size sedan.
"The Dodge Avenger is one of the fastest growing mid-size cars in America, with sales up 112 percent this year," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO - Dodge Brand. "We're building off this momentum with the introduction of the new SE V6 package,”  Bigland said., adding the Avenger SE V6 provides customers the most desirable features, including 18-inch aluminum wheels, rear decklid spoiler, and dual exhaust with bright tips. SE V-6 models also include the rest of the comprehensive equipment list standard on all Avenger SE models, including: LED taillamps, premium interior with soft-touch surfaces, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, electronic stability control with traction control and electronic roll mitigation, advanced multi-stage driver and front passenger air bags, side-curtain and front seat-mounted side airbags, laminated front windshield and front-row side glass, power locks, power mirrors, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, premium cloth seats, speed control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated audio and speed controls, outside temperature display in gauge cluster, CD with four speakers, 60/40 rear seat with trunk pass through, fold flat front passenger seat and a five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
