Dodge Avenger Gas Mileage

The 2008 Dodge Avenger is a unique automobile. While the mid-size Avenger borrows much of its looks from its big muscular brother the Dodge Charger, an economical engine capable of producing highway estimates of 30 miles per gallon (MPG), can lurk beneath the hood. But it’s not just about looks and MPGs. For those seeking honest to goodness four-season performance, the Avenger R/T model can roll with all-wheel-drive, a high-output engine, and a six-speed automatic transmission.

In the US, the 2008 Dodge Avenger can be equipped with one of three power plants:

  • 2.4 liter DOHC four-cylinder engine, delivering 173 horsepower (HP) and 166 foot pounds of torque
  • 2.7 liter DOHC six-cylinder engine, delivering 189 HP and 191 foot pounds of torque
  • 3.5 liter SOHC V-6 engine with the AutoStick six-speed automatic transmission and duel exhaust, delivering 235 HP and 232 foot pounds of torque

In International markets, the Avenger can be fitted with Volkswagen’s 2.0 liter common rail turbodiesel four cylinder engine. The VW four produces 138 HP and 229 foot pounds of torque, and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. With the turbodiesel and six-speed manual, the European Avenger cranks out a 0-62 mile per hour time of 12.0 seconds. The real attraction, of course, is the turbodiesels fuel efficiency: 34.4 urban / 55.4 extra urban miles per British gallon … which works out to US estimates of approximately 28.6 city / 46.1 highway … rather remarkable mileage for a vehicle of the Avenger’s proportions.

Note: the EPA tweaked their testing procedure, starting with the 2008 model year, with the end result being that the 2008 MPG estimates are now lower than previous years. As always, YMMV.

For the money and the looks of this Kia you have to wonder what Detroit’s lunch room have made for their brownies. Are they laced with something because they sure dont seem to have their heads together when it comes to make very up to date looking models compared to the Koreans.

The writing is on the wall . If what they call the big three don’t get it togeher soon theyll be called the big have nots.

Nice car Kia

I have a 2008 Avenger SXT w/4 cyl engine and auto transmission and I get an impressive 26 mpg city and 31 mpg hwy. For a car of this size, I am very suprised it even does better than an 03 Kia Spectra I used to have.
Kudos to Dodge.

I have a 2008 r/t. I ran it to 425 miles on one tank of gas and finally filled up as I got worried I would not make it to the next town. That easily puts me at 25 per gallon. I was impressed. The car shifts (automatic) a little hard, but overall I am very happy with it.

I just a bought a 2008 Dodge Avenger base model, and I absolutely love it. I traded in my 2003 F150 for the Avenger, and I’m glad I did it. The only thing I would do differently is the sound of the engine, it’s a little too loud for a 4 cylinder, other than that I love it. The ride is smooth, very spacious on the inside, great gas mileage, good sound system, spacious trunk, I’m very happy with my Avenger. I have always driven Ford’s, but I think I might have to change that.

I have the 2008 Dodge Avenger with a 4Cyl. The best 4Cyl you’ll ever have. I love this car. Hope Fiat doesnt mess it up too much.
