2008 Dodge Avenger SE sedan 4-door automatic

The 2008 Avenger is a 4-door, 5-passenger family sedan, available in 4 trims, ranging from the SE to the R/T AWD. Upon introduction, the SE is equipped with a standard 2.4-liter, I4, 173-horsepower engine that achieves 21-mpg in the city and 30-mpg on the highway. A 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard. The R/T AWD is equipped with a standard 3.5-liter, V6, 235-horsepower engine that achieves 15-mpg in the city and 24-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard. The 2008 Avenger is all-new for 2008.

2008 Dodge Avenger SE is sporty, stylish and SHOWROOM CLEAN! Loaded with great features are: Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Tilt Wheel, AM/FM CD MP3 Radio, Dual Front Air Bags, Front & Side Air Bags, Keyless Entry, Sirius Satellite Radio, Security Alarm, and more.

Exterior

The Avenger trades the Sebring's sleeper styling for a bolder grille with Dodge's iconic crosshairs. The rear end looks much like the one on the full-size Charger, while the side profile draws elements from the compact Caliber hatchback. Up front, the Avenger SE includes a black grille, while the SXT and R/T have chrome grilles. The R/T also includes fog lights.

Wheel choices range from 16-inch steel wheels on the SE to 18-inch alloy rims on the R/T. At 190.9 inches long, the Avenger is about even with the Accord and 1.7 inches longer than the Camry.

Interior

Inside, the cabin trades the Sebring's metallic textures for varied shades of plastic. Dodge's Chill Zone, a feature introduced in the Caliber, allows drinks to be cooled by air-conditioning vents in a covered storage box atop the glove compartment. It's standard on all Avengers. Other standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, and power windows and door locks.

The SXT adds a power driver's seat and stain-resistant upholstery, among other things, while the R/T includes automatic climate control, steering-wheel audio controls and more. A heated and cooled cup holder — an unusual feature in today's car biz — is optional, as are heated leather seats. Several luxury features offered elsewhere in the segment, like a power passenger seat and dual-zone climate control, are missing.

A CD stereo is standard, but buyers can upgrade to Chrysler's My Gig system, which allows storage of up to 20GB of music, pictures and voice messages that can be played through the Avenger's navigation system. A rear-seat DVD system is also optional.

A 60/40-split folding rear seat accommodates longer items from the trunk. For even more oversized cargo, a fold-flat passenger seat is optional in the Avenger SE and standard elsewhere. With 100.9 cubic feet of cabin volume, the Avenger slightly trails the Accord (102.7) and Camry (101.4).

Under the Hood

The Avenger SE and SXT include a 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Optional on the SXT is a 2.7-liter V-6 that makes 189 hp and can run on gasoline or ethanol-based E85. Both the four-cylinder and 2.7-liter V-6 use a four-speed automatic transmission.The R/T has a 235-hp, 3.5-liter V-6. It teams with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Safety

Side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows are standard. Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, however, are optional — something many competitors include standard. An electronic stability system is also optional.
