The facelifted Dodge Avenger has been revealed today with a all-new interior, better powertrain options, a revised suspension and a barely noticeable exterior makeup.
The 2011 Dodge Avenger receives only a few exterior tweaks and a new signature Dodge Brand “split crosshair” grille and a redesigned bumper up front, plus new LED tail lamps at the back.
Inside, the 2011 Avenger gets a brand new interior with a far more contemporary design and higher-grade materials that Dodge claims are “more pleasing to the touch but also to the eye”.
The 2011 Dodge Avenger receives a new multi-function three-spoke sports steering wheel with integrated controls for the radio, cruise control, hands-free phone, and the availability of new two-tone interior color schemes and voice command functions for hands-free phones.
The 2011 Avenger receives an updated 2.4-liter gasoline engine mated to a new smoother-shifting six-speed transmission and the Chrysler Group’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 283HP, also linked to a six-speed auto.
Dodge says its engineers have retuned or redesigned virtually every part of the suspension for 2011, including 26 of 30 suspension bushings. The mid-size sedan also gets wider tires (from 215 to 225).
The updated 2011 Dodge Avenger is scheduled to arrive to dealerships before the end of the year.
