For 2014, the Dodge Avenger is available in three trim levels: SE, SXT and R/T. The standard engine on all but the R/T is 2.4L 173-hp 4-cylinder engine, paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission on the SE and a 6-speed auto on the SXT and R/T. Chrysler's 3.6L Pentastar V6, which makes 283 horsepower and 260 ft-lb of torque, is standard on the R/T and optional on the SE and SXT. It comes mated to a 6-speed automatic.
Safety features in the Avenger include multistage front airbags, active head restraints for the front seats and front and rear side-curtain airbags. Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes are standard, as is Chrysler's ESP stability control system.
Even the base-level SE comes well-equipped, with body-color door handles, power heated mirrors, high-efficiency tires, 17-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic climate control. SXT models feature automatic headlights, fog lamps, 17-inch aluminum wheels, body colored heated mirrors, an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat and a 6-speaker sound system. Other features across the line include air conditioning, power locks and windows, a split-folding rear seat, Bluetooth, satellite radio and a USB port. The R/T features sport suspension as well as unique interior and exterior styling. The R/T also comes with leather upholstery and heated front seats.

Just when you thought the Challenger Hellcat couldn't get more bonkers, Dodge upped the ante to 797 horses.
The recall is limited to slightly older vehicles.
Dodge's insane Challenger Redeye is the best kind of overkill.
In that most American tradition of "More is better," Fiat Chrysler gave us six ads this year, none of which will air during the big game.
