Dodge Avenger Specifications

Did you want our main Dodge Avenger page? or the Dodge Avenger forums?

Dimensions are in inches (millimeters) at curb weight with standard wheels and tires unless otherwise noted. Gas mileage changes are due to the move to a new measurement system effective in model-year 2008. No manual transmission is available. Figures from the 2007 Camry are provided for comparison.

2006 dodge avenger concept car

Platform

Officially, Chrysler wrote that the Sebring’s JS platform is derived from the GS [Caliber/Compass/Patriot] platform but is wider and longer. Many parts are shared among vehicles on the two platforms, and a high level of flexibility has been engineered into the assembly process. If demand is strong, the Chrysler group can assemble the Sebring and Avenger at its Belvidere plant. Conversely, Chrysler can assemble the Caliber and its Jeep siblings in the Sterling Heights plant.

oh20 reported — correctly and long in advance — that the drivetrain choices are the four-speed automatic transmission with the 2.4 World Engine (40TES automatic) or the 2.7 V6 (41TES automatic; standard and flex-fuel versions); a retuned (for lower horsepower) 3.5 liter V6 is optional, with the brand-new 62TE six-speed automatic transmission developed entirely by Chrysler (which includes a special kickdown gear, technically making it a seven-speed). oh20 also reported that the ESP stability control package will be available. There are many cool features in these vehicles — see the feature lists further down on this page.

Export cars get a Volkswagen diesel and 2.0 liter four-cylinder World Engine, coupled to the automatics or to a manual transmission (a five-speed Chrysler design or a six-speed Aisin model). This is the engine in the “concept car” shown in France (and pictured on this page).

Currently, the Sebring and Stratus sedans, combined, are selling around 200,000 units per year, including the closely-related Sebring Convertible, while the Neon is selling around 120,000 units. The Sedans outsold the Mitsubishi-designed Coupes by more than a 4:1 margin when sales data was still separated.

RedRiderBob and Michigan_79 stopped the clock on a Chrysler presentation and found the Avenger!
...and they did it six months before the September photos (clearly showing the same car, in silver) arrived.
