The 2009 Dodge Avenger is a 4-door, 5-passenger sedan with a sporty appearance. For 2009, the Dodge Avenger has reduced-interior-noise levels, a cabin air-filter system and sunglass holders throughout all trims. A leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, a rear spoiler, fog lamps and ABS are now standard on the SXT and R/T trims. The R/T now has 18-inch chrome wheels standard. The base model Dodge Avenger has a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine under the hood. This generates 173 hp and is controlled with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The 2009 Dodge Avenger standard features include a AM/FM stereo with CD/MP3 player, Sirius satellite radio, Multistage Front airbags, side curtain airbags, keyless entry and an electro-luminescent instrument cluster, which makes reading the gauges at night much easier. The Dodge Avenger is an affordable option in the American sedan market.Read more Read less
Following its introduction in 2008, the Dodge Avenger receives few changes for 2009. For starters, the lineup shrinks, as the base SE has been dropped, leaving only the SXT and R/T models. The availability of all-wheel drive has also been dropped. Extra noise-reducing materials have been added to the Avenger, and SXT and R/T models now feature anti-lock brakes, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and fog lamps as standard equipment. The R/T also adds 18-inch chrome wheels and various interior convenience items to its list of standards.
