With an intriguingly reasonable MSRP of just $19,795, the 2013 Dodge Avenger would make a great addition to the average commuter’s life. The Avenger is a perfectly adept mid-size sedan, lacking the intricate bells and whistles of many cars in its class, however surpassing many of those models in overall customer satisfaction. This model is available to consumers in eight colors, including Bullet Silver Metallic, Black, Blue Streak Pearl, New Bright White, Crystal Blue Pearl, Redline 2 Coat Pearl, True Blue Pearl Tungsten Metallic. This model was also an IIHS (International Institute for Highway Safety) top safety pick for 2013, so consumers can feel at ease driving around in the Avenger. The Avenger maintains Dodge’s signature honeycomb grille that accentuates exterior appearances, while improving airflow under the hood. Innovative LED taillights illuminate the rear of the Avenger, so as to provide optimum visibility to drivers behind this mid-size sedan. Dodge has included six wheel options ranging in size from 17-inch alloy to 18-inch chrome. Whether consumers want ordinary or extraordinary, the Avenger will not disappoint.
As is the case with nearly every modern Dodge, this model has soft-touch, leather-appointed seats and interior fabric, which immediately greets consumers with an elevated sense of appeal and luxury. The leather-appointed seats are trimmed with high-quality soft-touch leather, while the main fabric of the seats is constructed of cloth seats stitched with premier materials. A leather-wrapped steering wheel offers convenience for Bluetooth connectivity, audio settings and cruise control, granting the driver far greater ease of access and convenience than many models in the same class. There is 13.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the trunk of the Avenger. With the 60/40 folding rear seats, the Avenger offers slightly more cargo capabilities. Only in recent years has Dodge offered led lighting to trim the exterior lines of the cupholders. While this may be a small amenity for most consumers, Dodge nonetheless remains one of the sole car manufacturers to offer this convenient option. In contrast to the cupholders, however, the Avenger has been noted by test drivers and consumer to severely lack where legroom is concerned.
As seems to be the case with most Dodge vehicles, there are two engine packages for consumers to choose from. The first package is a lightweight 2.5-liter Inline 4 World engine. This package comes equipped with Variable Valve Timing and can achieve up to an impressive 31 MPG on the highway. The second engine package, which entails a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, with 283 ponies and 260 lb. – ft. of torque offers consumers 29 MPG highway and the peace of mind in knowing there will be enough power to get through nearly any on-road situation.
Safety should be a concern with any vehicle. The 2013 Dodge Avenger offers the ultimate in standard safet features. Active front head restraints protect occupant’s heads in the unfortunate event of a collision or rollover accident. Six standard airbags promise to fully protect all of the vehicle’s occupants, should a crash occur. Smart-lock child safety anchors safely secure toddler and infant occupants, so as to protect them during the events of a crash.
