The lowered ride height is great for agile and confident handling. There is also a MacPherson strut front suspension and independent multilink rear suspension teaming together to enhance ride quality for a smooth and exceptionally quiet driving experience. On the RT, there is a sport suspension for improved handling. Speed proportional, power assisted rack and pinion steering provides a good on centre feel and excellent responsiveness.

Up to 31 hwy mpg.

A 2.4L four-cylinder engine mated to the available six-speed automatic transmission with Variable Valve Timing, maximizes power and efficiency to get up to 31 hwy mpg.


A finely tuned suspension brings the road to life.

In the front, MacPherson struts are tuned to provide an optimum balance of ride, handling and noise isolation. And in the back, the multi-link rear suspension allows individual movement of the rear wheels over different road surfaces, for the smoothest ride possible. The suspension is uniquely tuned, depending on the model touring-tuned on Dodge Avenger SE and Dodge Avenger SXT, sport-tuned on Dodge Avenger R/T.


All-speed traction control helps prevent spinouts before they happen.

Traction control helps maintain traction and stability by applying brake pressure to slipping wheels, and reducing engine power when necessary to help the wheels regain traction.


Precise shifting with the six-speed automatic AutoStick transmission.

The automatic transmission is equipped with a low first gear, designed to make quick takeoffs from a stop. And it does that while using variable line pressure to help increase gas mileage and enhance reliability. A standard AutoStick feature allows the driver to control shifting if desired.


Two engines with a lot to flex.

Each engine features dual Variable Valve Timing (VVT), which constantly adjusts to improve engine breathing, efficiency and performance.
