Avenger Concept History

Based on the platform of the Mitsubishi Galant the Dodge Avenger was produced from1995 through 2000. A two-door sports coupe, the Avenger easily fits up to four passengers with ease, yet is still sleek and powerful enough to attract sporty drivers.

The Avenger was available in both base and ES trim models and originally was available in two different engine size an transmission types, the four-cylinder 5-speed base model and the V6 automatic ES. The V6 eventually became standard on all trim models, but was only available as an automatic. The original Avenger featured 103in wheelbase. The V6 engine was only available with the A604 transmission and could not be swapped out easily due to a lack of transmission capable of fitting around the front axle.

Born out of a partnership between Chrysler and Mitsubishi, the Dodge Avenger featured an exciting style and a spacious cabin. The Avenger was built by Diamon Star Motors, along with the similar Chrysler Sebring coupe on a stretched Mitsubishi Galant platform

The Avenger was discontinued in 2000 and Dodge's newest coupe was renamed the Stratus Coupe.

In 2008 the Dodge Avenger name resurfaced as an athletically designed 4-door sedan that became the successor to the Dodge Stratus. Sharing its platform with the Chrysler Sebring the '08 Dodge Avenger featured 3 engines, a fuel efficient, relatively weak 2.4 liter 4-cylinder capable of 173 horsepower, the mid range offering 189 horsepower 2.7 liter V6 and a 3.5 liter V6 powerhouse that delivered 235 horsepower. The 2.4 liter 4-cylinde engine sent horsepower to the front wheel via a 4-speed automatic transmission, while the 2.7 liter V6 was more refined than the noisy 4-cylinder. The 3.5 liter V6 was available with front or all wheel drive.

The 4-cylinder Avenger SE features power windows, mirrors, door locks, AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary audio jack, AC and cruise control. The Avenger SXT features 17-inch alloy wheels, and anti-lock brakes. The Avenger R/T featured 18-inch wheels, 4-wheel disc bakes, a sport tuned suspension system, 6 disc CD/DVD changer and automatic climate control. The R/T came standard with traction and stability control.

Basically a 5-passenger sedan, the 2008 Dodge Avenger is one of the many sport themed midsize sedans in the market today. The Avenger will replace the outdated and aging Stratus sedan and along with the redesigned Sebring will use a shared DaimlerChrysler/Mitsubishi Motors platform called the GS. The GS platform will be stretched in size and known as the JS.
