Since its brush with bankruptcy in 2009 Chrysler has been scrambling to get back in the game and its 2011 models do just that (especially the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Compass and Dodge Durango). The new Dodge Avenger isn't a total redesign but it's a big improvement over the previous Avenger so now it's a contender offering midsize size at compact value.The 2011 Dodge Avenger is a family sedan with size and safety that gets a combined 26 mpg.The cabin has been totally redesigned for 2011 with the emphasis on silence. Noise vibration and harshness (NVH) were reduced using 45 new sound-deadening treatments including an acoustic glass windshield laminated side glass new sound absorption materials and a new three-point engine mount system.On the outside the lines are cleaner and more aggressive. There's a new front fascia with the Dodge crosshair grille and lower fascia with honeycomb opening and new projector beam foglamps. The rear fascia is more sculpted and there are LED taillamps.The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that comes standard has been recalibrated for 2011 for improved efficiency allowing it to earn a 31 mpg Highway rating from the government while producing the same 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque available previously. Standard transmission is a 4-speed automatic but for 2011 there's a new 6-speed automatic transmission in most models.Chrysler's 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is also available in the 2011 Avenger boosting performance to a best-in-class 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The V6 rates 19 City and 29 Highway miles per gallon only 2 mpg less than the four-cylinder; gaining 110 horsepower and losing only 2 mpg is excellent. The V6 costs $2500 more adding touch-screen Media Center foglamps spoiler and 18-inch wheels.Styling-wise the Avenger isn't bad looking but it blends invisibly onto the highway with the vanilla sedans unless you're a MoPar fan with your eye out for them. It misses an opportunity to be eye-catching like its big brother the Charger. It competes in a tough midsize field against cars with distinctive looks for example the Ford Fusion plus the more vanilla Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.The Avenger chassis is shared with the Chrysler Sebring which was designed to be a convertible as well as a sedan so it's stiff and strong and you can feel the tightness in both the cabin and handling. It earns five-star crash ratings from the government's NHTSA.Dodge engineers aced the suspension upgrading 26 of 30 bushings and improving other things. When we drove the Avenger we found ride quality and cornering response excellent. For 2011 the track is 1 inch wider tires widened from 215 to 225 mm and body lowered by 12 mm in front and 6 mm rear. Tighter wider lower smoother faster it's all good.The Avenger was supposed to be a baby Charger all along and for 2011 it almost is especially the Avenger R/T. A Charger-like mouth and manual transmission would clinch it.Model LineupAvenger model names sound like a family of Superheroes: Avenger Express Avenger Mainstreet Avenger Heat Avenger Lux and Avenger R/T.Dodge Avenger Express ($19245) is well equipped with power windows and mirrors keyless entry 60/40-split rear seat rear defroster cruise control tilt-telescoping steering wheel tire-pressure monitor and air conditioning. It uses the 2.4-liter engine with a 4-speed automatic transmission.Dodge Avenger Mainstreet ($21245) features the 6-speed automatic transmission plus six speakers instead of four leather-wrapped steering wheel power driver's seat satellite radio trip computer and more options.Dodge Avenger Heat ($23745) brings it on with the new 283-horsepower V6 mated to the 6-speed automatic. Also: a touch screen foglamps spoiler and 18-inch wheels.Dodge Avenger Lux ($23545) comes with the 2.4-liter engine (V6 optional) but more comfort and upscale looks including leather upholstery handsfree phone hookup chrome wheels no spoiler.Dodge Avenger R/T was introduced in April 2011 as a 2012 model. Same powertrain as the Heat but with R/T attitude: black grille and trim and sportier interior including a unique gauge cluster with big tach in the center. But it's the sports suspension stiffer at every angle and roll that makes the R/T unique. If you bought a Heat and added the R/T suspension kit you'd have a sleeper. It wouldn't look as cool but sometimes that's the definition of sleeper.Safety equipment standard on all models includes electronic stability and traction control ABS six airbags active head restraints front airbags front side airbargs airbag curtains tire pressure warning and a LATCH child-seat system.WalkaroundThe Dodge Avenger might be smoother and cleaner for 2011 but the overall lines aren't dynamic. You can sure tell it isn't European. It doesn't even try to be sleek unlike one competitor the Hyundai Sonata at least trying. The Avenger says retro period.Its shape suggests the Charger especially at the hips and roofline but doesn't inspire like it. But it's still clean so give Dodge stylists some stars. There's no cladding or ding strips on the sides. Body-colored door handles and mirrors (except on the Express) nice. The fascia/bumpers front and rear are smooth but need to be sculpted more or something.For 2011 the stance is lower and wider and it shows. The track is an inch wider tires 10 mm wider nose 12 mm lower and rear bumper 6 mm lower. Way better than before.The crosshair in the grille the Dodge symbol doesn't work for us on the Avenger partly because it's plated-chrome plastic. Even the body-colored crosshair on the R/T doesn't help much although it might work if it were black like the eggcrate background. That black eggrcrate works best in the horizontal openings on the lower fascia three of them separated by small vertical struts. It doesn't seem as if much work went into making the dual headlamps sleek. There are twin character lines on the hood deep enough that you can see they're V-shaped that should accentuate the long hood but don't.Black seams run along the roofline from the A pillars back to the top corners of the rear glass. Was it the Dodge Caliber that started this regrettable craze?The Avenger isn't bad looking it just gets lost with the vanilla sedans. It misses an opportunity to be eye-catching like the Charger.Interior FeaturesInside the 2011 Dodge Avenger is a total makeover. It's not particularly exciting but neither is it annoying frustrating or inconvenient as many cars with interiors and controls that try to do too much or be cool. The Avenger is simple: everything in its correct place and not too much of it. The controls are all easy to operate in the standard right places. That alone makes the driving more relaxing. User friendly because it doesn't confuse you.The prevailing impression inside the Avenger is that there's a lot of room to maneuver and stretch. It feels big inside yet not too big outside.Rear-seat legroom is adequate at 36.2 inches although that's nearly 2 inches less than the Volkswagen Jetta with a wheelbase that's shorter by 4.5 inches. The Avenger has nearly an inch less rear legroom than the same-sized Ford Fusion a midsize class leader.The doors are designed well with comfortable leather armrests (in our Avenger Mainstreet) a good grab handle door pockets and small levers that make opening the doors easy. Besides the simple and roomy layout the best part of the interior might be the expensive feel of the leather used on the steering wheel on Mainstreet and up models. The worst part might be the cheap looking trim some chrome and some faux aluminum.The numbering on the gauges misses not ugly cluttered or hard to read but no style; we wonder why carmakers keep playing with this especially since Dodge has done it right before (2009 Ram for example). Actually the tachometer is hard to read too small and out of the w Online Application Available...With Rates Starting at 2.99% O.A.C.amily Owned with Family Pricing. Apply today!
