2012 Dodge Avenger starts at $22,345 image

The North American based automaker Dodge has recently announced the starting price for the 2012 Avenger SE V6, which has been set at 22,345 USD.

Being one of the most affordable cars in America, the Dodge Charger is planning on becoming even more affordable, thanks to adding an entry-level V6 model to its lineup, named the SE, coming at a starting price of 22,345 USD, including an $850 destination charge. Dodge might attract more customers into the brand with the entry-level Avenger SE V6, because the similar 2012 Toyota Camry S, with the 3.5 liter V6 engine, is $5,000 more expensive.

“The Dodge Avenger is one of the fastest growing mid-size cars in America, with sales up to 112 percent this year. We’re building off this momentum with the introduction of the new SE V6 package, delivering a true no compromise solution for the mid-size car buyer – 283 best-in-class horsepower, 29 mpg highway, 18-inch wheels and a rear spoiler – all for just $21,495 MSRP. You get the power, the efficiency, the look and tremendous value that is unmatched in the segment”, said the company’s president and CEO, Reid Bigland.

The 2012 Dodge Avenger is powered by a 3.6 liter Pentastar engine, which is developing a total output of 283 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 260 lb-ft, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and offering 29 mpg on the highway. The entry-level 2012 Dodge Avenger is coming with a five-year / 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.
