Fuel efficiency; standout exterior styling; innovative interior features; lifetime powertrain warranty.
The 2009 Avenger has an upright and angular appearance that borrows styling cues from the big Charger sedan and Dodge's muscle-car past. But the Avenger's appeal goes beyond outward appearance; the model offers several innovative interior features not often seen in its class.
Examples of the standout interior features available include the Chill Zone, a cooled storage compartment that can hold up to four beverage cans, a heated/cooled cup holder, stain-resistant seat fabric, LED directional interior lighting, and MP3 playback compatibility. There's also a rear-seat video system, a Bluetooth UConnect hands-free cell phone interface, and an available audio system known as MyGig, which integrates a navigation system with a 20-gigabyte hard drive for storing music and images.
The Avenger is available in two different models: the SXT and the sporty R/T. A 173-horsepower, 2.4L four-cylinder engine is standard, and it is capable of up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway, according to EPA estimates. The 2.4L is paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Optional on the SXT is a 2.7L flex-fuel-capable engine making 189 horsepower. A 235-horsepower 3.5L V6 is optional on the R/T and is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission with Auto Stick manual control. All avengers are front-wheel drive.
The SXT comes well equipped, with standard keyless entry, the Chill Zone, power windows, locks and mirrors, air conditioning, a split folding rear seat, satellite radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and cruise control, and fog lamps. Sporty R/T models include leather upholstery power heated fold-away side mirrors, automatic climate control, 18-inch chrome wheels, a sunglasses holder, and more.
Options include a Navigation and Sound Group, which features a navigation system with voice recognition, traffic information, a Boston Acoustics sound system, hard drive, Bluetooth and an iPod adapter.
Front seat-mounted side air bags and side-curtain air bags that cover front and rear occupants are standard on all Avenger models, as are anti-lock brakes. Traction control is optional.
Following its introduction in 2008, the Dodge Avenger receives few changes for 2009. For starters, the lineup shrinks, as the base SE has been dropped, leaving only the SXT and R/T models. The availability of all-wheel drive has also been dropped.
Extra noise-reducing materials have been added to the Avenger, and SXT and R/T models now feature anti-lock brakes, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and fog lamps as standard equipment. The R/T also adds 18-inch chrome wheels and various interior convenience items to its list of standards.
The 2009 Dodge Avenger is a smart, boldly styled mid-size competitor to the Chevy Malibu, Ford Fusion and Toyota Camry. The Avenger has expanded standard-feature content, including side air bags, anti-lock brakes, an alarm and the innovative Chill Zone cooler system. Several options, such as the MyGig audio/navigation system and heated/cooled cup holder, also differentiate it feature-wise from other mid-size sedans.
