Overall, it is a very nice car. It handles well, and returns very good gas mileage for a vehicle its size. The 2012 Dodge Avenger has some very nice features, like the stitched dash and door trims, complete;y electronically managed ignition, dash integrated information system and much more.
There are strategically placed LED lights inside the Dodge Avenger - reminds you of the lighting in Aircraft cabins. The starter is not physically tied to the ignition switch. There is a whole bunch of electronic wizardry that mediates actions taken in the cabin of the car and what actually happens under the hood. You will notice a very slight delay from turning the key to having the motor actually turn over. Once the engine is running, you cannot mistakenly turn the key once more and re engage the starter - a nice fail safe future.
The Engineers at Dodge did a good job with the engine. You can see it is right in the middle of the engine bay under the hood, giving ample room for mechanics doing maintenance on the car.
So far, the three major problems I noticed were:
- There is nothing to grab hold of when you want to open the trunk. Makes you wonder who would design such a good looking and high performance Dodge Avenger and forget to include a grab surface to help pull up the trunk.
- Second, the windshield wiper stalk is too close to the steering wheel. While this may not be a problem for those with small fingers, it is obviously gonna get in the way if you have thick fingers are are wearing a glove.
- The rear doors have a raised trailing edge, so when passing another vehicle, it seems like there is a vehicle on your side and it scared me more than once. Maybe with time you may get used to it.
This is a good buy and will definitely be easy for mechanics to work on down the road when maintenance is needed. Buy one at a Dodge Dealer today.
2012 dodge avenger grille and LED accents
we installed a chrome wire mesh grille overlay and White LED headlight
accents. On this 2012 dodge avenger. We also installed a white LED accent
strip along the air dam. The LEDs give the headlights an angry look. We
proposed this idea to the customer. He liked the idea and we went ahead
with it. The customer likes how it turned out, and so do we. Nothing better
than seeing those angry eyes in your rear view mirror!
2012 Dodge Avenger Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/dodge/avenger/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Dodge
Avenger is one of the most powerful naturally aspirated mid-sized V-6
sedans on the market. On thing you have to give credit to Dodge for is the
sporty lines they work into every automobile. And the Avenger is no
exception. Up front there is the iconic Dodge grill which is present on all
their vehicles, the lower fascia is aggressive, and the big block
headlights look great. The body lines follow the same sort of high
waistline in the rear quarters as the Charger and Challenger. Base price
for the Avenger is $18,995.
The 2012 Dodge Avenger comes with 2 different engine options. The first is
a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder that creates 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft. of
torque. This smaller engine gets 31 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the
highway. The larger, more powerful engine is a 3.6 liter V-6 that makes 283
horsepower and 260
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy for this engine is excellent at 19 MPG in
the city and 29 MPG on the highway.
On the inside the space is adequate in the rear. Up front Dodge has an
upgraded steering wheel with mounted controls. The Avenger also features
Blue Tooth connectivity, optional touch navigation, and ambient interior
lighting. Dodge has been working hard over the past few years to carve out
a space for itself in the mid-sized car segment which is a tough gig. But
with the powerful and responsive V-6 Pentastar engine you get the best of
both worlds: power and fuel economy.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
