2012 Dodge Avenger RT
A new Dodge.
The new 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T makes its worldwide auto show debut at the
2011 New York International Auto Show.
With exceptional V-6 fuel economy, the new Dodge Avenger is the perfect
sedan for the customer who wants an enthusiastic driving performance at a
great value. With a stiffened suspension, best-in-class 283 horsepower engine,
center-mounted tachometer and performance-inspired interior and exterior
design, the 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T ups the driving fun factor.
"The Dodge Avenger R/T makes driving a mid-size car a really fun, engaging
experience," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand — Chrysler
Group LLC. "The Avenger R/T offers performance design cues both inside and
out, as well as unique handling characteristics and a sport-tuned
suspension. It's a vehicle that is ready to earn its stripes as part of the
Dodge performance family of vehicles."
In 2011, Dodge introduced the new Dodge Avenger mid-sized sedan. With more
standard features than other vehicles in the segment - an all-new interior,
a new powertrain, including one of Ward's "10 Best Engines," the
best-in-class 283 horsepower 3.6-liter
Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transaxle, a
significantly updated suspension that results in exceptional driving
dynamics and an updated design - the Dodge Avenger is a vehicle packed with
value and a style all its own.
The new for 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T model builds on all the improvements
made to the 2011 model giving mid-size sedan customers an unmatched driving
experience along with Dodge attitude.
Dodge engineers amplified the driving experience by giving the Dodge
Avenger R/T a superlative powertrain and performance-tuned suspension. The
2012 Dodge Avenger R/T is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine
mated to a six-speed automatic transaxle, which has an EPA fuel economy
rating of 19 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
To make it stay true to the Dodge R/T DNA, engineers tuned the Avenger's
suspension specifically to the R/T model. They increased roll stiffness by
18 percent, and spring rates by 17 percent in the front and more than 12
percent in the rear. Front strut damping rates are increased 15 percent,
rear strut damping rates are increased almost 20 percent and the rear
stabilizer bar diameter is 2 mm larger, increased from 19 mm to 21 mm. The
suspension changes result in a spirited, performance sedan driving
experience. With best-in-class 283 horsepower, and still
delivering 29 miles per gallon on the highway, the Dodge Avenger R/T is
unmatched in its class.
The Dodge Avenger R/T model exterior has unique exterior design elements,
including a unique body-color grille with the Dodge badge, menacing black
headlamp background, the "war paint" R/T decal on the front quarter panel
and unique 18-in. painted aluminum wheels. The performance elements carry
through to the rear of the vehicle with a spoiler and the "R/T" badge.
The interior of the 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T sports distinctive Aunde fabric
with Z stripe fabric inserts, red stitching and aggressive leather-trimmed
bolsters that hold drivers and passengers firmly in their seats when they
put the Avenger to the test. The front seats are heated and sport an "R/T"
graphic stitched in red on the front headrests. Drivers will notice a
cockpit unlike other Avenger models. It features a unique gauge cluster
with a center-mounted tachometer with the "R/T" graphic and SRT-inspired
brake and accelerator pedal pads. The steering wheel is wrapped in
perforated leather with red accent stitching. A Boston Acoustic sound
system compliments the standard 276-watt touchscreen entertainment center
with a 30-gigabyte hard drive. The excellent sound system and remote start
are some of the many standard features on the Dodge Avenger R/T model.
The Dodge Avenger mid-size sedan is a 2011 Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety Top Safety Pick, and provides customers an abundance of standard
safety and high-tech features designed to keep drivers connected with their
hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Standard safety features include
advanced multi-stage front passenger air bags, front seat side air bags,
electronic stability control with electronic traction control, four-wheel
anti-lock brakes, supplemental side curtain air bags and LATCH child seat
For 2011, the Dodge Avenger mid-size sedan is available in four different
configurations, and features a five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
The Avenger Express, Avenger Mainstreet, Avenger Heat and Avenger Lux are
available in Dodge dealerships now. The 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T model will
start arriving in dealerships in the third quarter of 2011.
2010 Dodge Viper SRT10
Visit Us at: http://LTWTV.us - What is not to like about a small sports car
with a V10 engine and 600 horsepower?
It is an American Muscle Car Icon. The Viper is a street legal racecar
that the Europeans cannot understand. They don't have to understand, it
because it is the Dodge faithful that truly love this car. The Viper is a
true American treasure. It goes on hiatus until 2012 when it should return
even better. I hope you enjoy my review!

2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has
unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for
TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max
action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original
Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based
Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design
Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor
and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre
behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours
project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those
that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said.
"We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd
Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to
styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the
April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take
body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design
Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version,
which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are
limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry
is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on
bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to
interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also
drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and
clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further,"
he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an
industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the
wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other
cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it
further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor
as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but
still brutal and tough."
Our new Viper SRT10
=) its fast. Brand new, 15 or so miles on it. Everything is still stock.
Its a beast...
2013 Dodge Viper: The Italian Job
The new owners of Chrysler, Fiat, want the Dodge Viper to live on. We're
all for it. They also want this Viper to have a design trait that puts in
the world class section of supercars. Who could Argue with that? Alfa
Romeo, Ferrari and Zagato all have a hand in it.
