Article by Christian Andrei, on April 7, 2013

Allen Johnson, the defending 2012 Pro Stock Champion, will be behind the wheel of the Dodge Avenger for what remains of the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season. The car gets a new appearance with Mopar’s “Express Lane Fast Oil Changes & More” message. On the first weekend of April, the new Mopar Express Lane paint scheme was set to be introduced at the NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas just in time for the designated National Car Care month.

This is considered to be a good way to urge drivers to have their vehicles inspected and be correctly maintained. Presently, over 800 Chrysler Group dealerships offer dedicated Express Lane service for light maintenance procedures such as fast oil changes for all make and model cars, together with a first-class inspection, conducted by very well trained Chrysler Group dealership technicians.

There’s no need to make an appointment to get fast and convenient service on Express Lane. The Available Express Lane services are inclusive of oil and filter changes, multipoint vehicle checkup, tire rotation with brake inspection, air and cabin filter replacement, wiper blade replacement, headlight and light bulb replacement and battery testing. It’s not only Chrysler Group vehicles that the Mopar Express Lane Service attends to. That’s because with the Magneti Marelli Offered by Mopar program, all other makes and models can also take advantage of its fast service.

The 2011 Dodge Avenger got an extensive overhaul, including a new top-notch interior and a reworked exterior that features a more sculpted look, as well as performance characteristics that help give you a fun drive. You also get a new lineup of powertrains as well as reworked and reconfigured suspension for better driving dynamics. All of these work together with the interior and exterior design changes to make the new Dodge Avenger have its own style and value-packed.

Ralph Gilles, President and CEO for the Dodge Brand of the Chrysler Group LLC, says that the brand has redesigned the 2011 model lineup to give their vehicles an American styling and performance that their customers would love. Gilles also says that consumers will feel this when they drive the new Dodge Avenger. The Dodge Avenger is packed with standard features that will be perfect for any lifestyle, giving you top-notch interior design that puts a premium on craftsmanship and comfort. Additionally, Gilles says, that you will look forward to driving the Avenger daily.

2011 Dodge Avenger gives you confident and agile handling no matter what the situation is: whether you need to make an emergency maneuver or in managing zigzags. Engineers have redesigned virtually all parts of the suspension for the new model, including 26 out of the 30 bushings. The new Avenger’s track is a full inch wider while tire width is 10 mm wider at 225 mm. The Avenger has is now 12 mm lower at the front and 6 mm lower at the rear, giving it a more daring and road hugging look. When you drive an Avenger, you will be confident and will experience less body roll and car motion. You also have better isolation, better grip, and improved precision in steering due to the new tires.

The powertrain options have also been updated. The Dodge Avenger now comes with the World Gas Engine. The 2.4 L engine has been improved and is paired with six-speed transmission. The engine gives the Avenger 166 lb.-ft. of torque and 173 hp of power

Customers can also choose to have the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine. That means you get top notch fuel economy and the best V6 performance that gives you 283 hp of power and torques of up to 260 lb.-ft.
