With exceptional V-6 fuel economy, the Dodge Avenger is the sedan for the customer who wants an enthusiastic driving performance at a great value. And 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.
Dodge engineers amplified the driving experience by giving the new-for-2012 Dodge Avenger R/T a superlative powertrain and performance-tuned suspension. It is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic.
Dodge 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.
The Dodge Avenger R/T has unique exterior design elements, including a body-color grille with the Dodge badge, menacing black headlamp background, and unique 18-inch 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.
The cockpit features a unique gauge cluster with a center-mounted tachometer with the R/T graphic and SRT-inspired brake and accelerator pedal pads. A Boston Acoustic sound system compliments the standard 276-watt touchscreen entertainment center with a 30-gigabyte hard drive.
