Among the long list of models that could come back after a longer or shorter hiatus, you can also find the 2020 Dodge Avenger. Of course, we are talking about rumors and unofficial reports, which suggest we might see this mid-size sedan once again. The history of this nameplate started many years ago. While the initial models were more like sports cars, the last generation was pretty much a typical mid-size sedan.
We particularly liked its muscular styling, but things weren’t that good on the inside and under the skid. Eventually, the model was discontinued in 2014 and we are getting reports about the possible comeback since then. The latest reports suggested a comeback in the form of 2020 Dodge Avenger. Dodge definitely needs to refresh its lineup, but we can’t say how likely it sounds to see this nameplate in use once again.
All in all, keep in mind that this article is based on rumors, which come from highly unreliable sources. So, be sure to take the article with a big reserve.
2020 Dodge Avenger Design
When we are talking about this 2020 Dodge Avenger comeback, a good thing for this model is that it wasn’t dropped that long ago. Still, we count on a completely new layout, if the company plans to bring it back. This particularly refers to the platform. We count on something much modern compared to the previous model, which has a lot of things in common with Chrysler 200, which was a real fiasco.
In the case of the new Dodge Avenger 2020, you expect something with more athleticism and you may guess what’s on my mind. Yes, I’m talking about the Giorgio platform, the same one that undeprints the amazing Alfa Romeo Giulia, which is characterized by impressive handling and overall performances. This would definitely be a perfect combination with Avenger’s traditionally muscular look, which should come once again.
Speaking of the look, there’s no reason why Dodge would change things drastically. The styling was one of the best things about the last Avenger. Although a typical 4-door sedan, it looks really amazing even today, thanks to a large body with a lot of muscles, and that sporty fastback rear end. We may only presume that the new model would come in a similar manner, we won’t go too much in detail in this article. The fact is that we haven’t seen a brand-new model from this brand and that there is no such thing as a new design language in the case of this company.
2020 Dodge Avenger Interior
This is where we expect to see a lot of improvement compared to the previous generation. The previous model is spacious, but it lacks refinement. The cabin looks cheap, while seats are among the worst in class. So, those would be some of the things to focus on, along with new aesthetics and loads of new tech features. There’s a big chance that the 2020 Dodge Avenger would carry on as a 4-door sedan and would also expect to see pretty large dimensions. We count on a little bit longer wheelbase in the new model. Let’s say that something between 112 and 115 inches would be a perfect measure in the case of this model.
2020 Dodge Avenger Engines
When it comes to 2020 Dodge Avenger specs, the first thing that comes to mind is all that power that can be found under the hood of models like Challenger and Charger. The previous Avenger wasn’t particularly sporty in this aspect, despite the muscular look. The most powerful version featured a V6 engine with around 280 horsepower. We expect much more from the new Avenger, so this should be output for base versions. On the other side, higher trims would be equipped with V8 engines and much more power, though you should exactly expect to see versions like 2020 Dodge Avenger Hellcat etc.
Release Date and Price
This comeback is nothing more than a rumor at the moment. There are no official reports that gave us even sign of the revival. All the things that you’ve read are based on rumors, so it’s not about when this model will arrive, but rather if it’s going to come at all. Some reports suggest this may happen already this year, but that doesn’t sound very likely.
When it comes to the price, keep in mind that the new model would probably come standard with six-cylinder. Usually, mid-size sedans start around 25.000 dollars, but base versions are equipped with four-cylinder engines. Therefore, we may expect that the 2020 Dodge Avenger price would probably go around 30.000 dollars for base models. Key competitors would be models like Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu etc.
