Affordability and power is what the new 2012 Avenger SE V6 package recently launched by Dodge offers. This mid-size car is priced from $21,495 (MSRP, excluding destination charges) and is equipped with a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, one of Ward's "10 Best Engines," that’s coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 3.6-liter Pentastar engine offers a best-in-class 283hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque while attaining an EPA estimated 29 miles per gallon (mpg) highway – which leads its class for a V-6-powered mid-size sedan.
