From Dodge press: The 2010 Dodge Avenger draws on the Dodge brand’s heritage in its aggressive exterior lines. With traits from the Dodge Charger, the 2010 Dodge Avenger integrates the signature crosshair grille, muscular rear shoulders, large wheels and tires, rear spoiler and chrome-tipped dual exhausts to communicate the performance capability of the Dodge brand’s mid-size sedan.
Matching the 2010 Dodge Avenger’s aggressive looks is an available 3.5-liter 24-valve High-Output V-6 engine coupled with a six-speed automatic transaxle producing 235 horsepower (175 kW), 232 lb.-ft. (315 N•m) of torque and 27 mpg on the highway. Dodge Avenger’s six-speed automatic transmission with Auto Stick provides a quicker standing-start, while a robust differential with increased torque capacity enhances launch performance and lower overall top-gear ratio provide a quiet ride with improved fuel economy at highway speeds.
The 2.4-liter I-4 World Engine that comes standard on the 2010 Dodge Avenger produces 173 horsepower (129 kW) and 166 lb.-ft. and achieves 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
