Avenger 4.0

by David Zatz on

Is it time for the fourth generation of Avenger?* Renderer DarkSky explored such a car, based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Dodge Avenger

While the next Charger and Challenger will share the Giulia’s architecture, they are expected to be considerably larger than the new Italian car — indeed, roughly the size of the current L-cars.  A midsize or compact rear wheel drive car would slot in as the entry-level Dodge, presumably with four cylinder power, but possibly with a six — almost certainly without a V8, though.

As for the * and “fourth generation Avenger:” the original Avenger was a Hillman; it was followed by a Dodge-branded Mitsubishi coupe, then the “shared with Sebring” Stratus sedan replacement. These cars may have shared some parts, but all were designed in different places, at different times, by different companies.
