The Dodge Avenger is the name of two different models produced by Dodge. The original coupe version ran between 1995 and 2000, while the sedan version was released in 2007 and was in production until it was discontinued in 2014. The towing capacities listed on this page are for the more modern sedan version.
The later released model was a mid-size 4-door fastback sedan. It featured front-wheel or all-wheel drive depending on trim level. It was also a front-engine vehicle.
Ignoring the fact that there were two different versions, there was only one generation during production.
Powertrains ranged from a 2-liter World inline-4 used in many Dodge models to the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 found in performance versions. There was also a turbocharged 2-liter VW inline-4 available in certain higher-performance models.
These engines were mated with a number of different transmissions depending on trim and the respective engine. Transmissions ranged from a 4-speed automatic through to a 6-speed automatic. There were also 5-speed and 6-speed manual options available.
Trim levels for the Avenger were exceptionally extensive. They consisted of the base SE, SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, R/T AWD, Express, Mainstreet, Lux, and Heat.
The R/T version stands for Race or Track, which is Dodge’s performance trim package.
Lux and Heat were all limited-run versions of the SXT Plus trim level as of 2011. These trims both had very similar trim features to the SXT Plus. Mainstreet similarly replaced the SXT version.
It was eventually replaced by both the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200, two models that feature a huge amount of similarities with both one another and the original Dodge Avenger.
