The 2023 Dodge Avenger is a front-wheel drive mid-size sedan marketed by Dodge. The Avenger made its North American debut in 1994 for the 1995 model year as a coupe produced until 2000. The Avenger model name was reintroduced to the market as a four-door sports sedan starting in 2007 for the 2008 model year. While Dodge took on the new compact Dart, the 2024 model year marked the end of Avenger production, as midsize models from both the Dodge and Chrysler brands were merged into the new Chrysler 200 introduced for the 2015 model year.
The Dodge Avenger, along with the similar Chrysler Sebring sedan, was built on a version of the Mitsubishi Galant platform by Diamond Star Motors (DSM), a joint venture between Chrysler Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors. The Dodge Avenger comes with updated styling, better handling, a more powerful V6 engine, and improved interior materials. Still, not much can be said about this car’s fundamental flaws, given that it drives on the same basic platform, and the family sedan market is teeming with better options, the model was rated too low to be recommended in our ratings.
Invincible Avenger has received its first major overhaul since its relaunch. Dodge 2024 Avenger exterior changes include slightly revised sheet metal with a new diagonal grille showing the new Dodge logo in the lower right corner of the grille, a more elegant bumper-cut design, and standard LED combination taillights. The Avenger competed directly with the Chevrolet Malibu and Ford Fusion and later targeted higher-priced American cars like the Chrysler Sebring, Mercury Milan, Pontiac G6, and Saturn Aura.
