Well, there have been rumors that Dodge is set to unveil the new 2017 Avenger sometime this year. According to the same sources and those following closely its developments, the Dodge will come with a myriad of changes and refreshments to bring it to par with the rest of the vehicles in the midsize family segment. The speculated Dodge Avenger release date should be expected sometime before the fall of 2017 or early 2018.
Just like the 2014 model, the newest Avenger is set to offer exemplary handling and ride quality, and a strong V6 engine. The exterior is set to offer an aggressive stance and there’s no doubt that after about three years of waiting, the Avenger will certainly be a head-turner. Another notable strength is the reasonable price tag that well undercuts most of its rivals in its class.
The 2017 Dodge Avenger interior is another conspicuous aspect that Dodge would want to capitalize on. Its interior materials and technologies will probably need to be overhauled and replaced with modern and contemporary ones that reflect modern times and expectations. Some of the technologies that may be offered include adaptive cruise control, a sleek and responsive touchscreen display, a 360-degree camera, and a blind-spot monitor.
Although Dodge is yet to confirm or deny any of the speculations, one thing is certain: the Dodge Avenger 2017 will meet your basic needs. The segment has seen a steady growth of the number of vehicles offered, and the Avenger will certainly have to brace itself for a bruising battle with rivals such as the Ford Fusion, Mazda 6, Volkswagen Passat, Toyota Camry, and the Honda Accord.
2017 Dodge Avenger Competition
The 2017 Mazda 6 price starts from an MSRP of about $21,495, and for that price you get a smooth and responsive powertrain, top-quality materials, sporty handling and steering, excellent fuel economy, and stylish looks. In terms of performance, the Mazda 6 offers a 2.5L four-cylinder engine rated at 184 hp and 185 lbs. ft. of torque that helps propel it from 0-60 mph in a brisk 7.6 seconds. The 2017 Mazda 6 release date is expected sometime later in 2017.
Another formidable force to reckon with will probably be the “A” rated Ford Fusion 2017. The Fusion offers an available all-wheel drive system, fuel-efficient engines, sharp handling, an improved touchscreen interface, hush cabin, and advanced technology and safety features. In terms of performance, it comes with three engines with the most powerful being a turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine rated at a whopping 325 horsepower and 350 pounds-feet of torque. The mill comes fitted under the hood of the 2017 Ford Fusion V6 Sport. All these features and more are justified by an MSRP starting from just $22,495.
Last, but certainly not least, the vehicle under review will also find the Toyota Camry 2017 to be a worthy rival in almost every aspect: performance, interior layout, and value. The Camry Sedan MSRP starts from $23,070, and that for the Camry Hybrid from $26,790. For that price tag you get a comfortable and spacious interior, an excellent V6 engine, a distinct luxury and sport trim, user-friendly controls, and laudable rear seat space. Two engines are offered with the brisker one offering 268 hp and 248 pounds-ft. of torque.

2017 Dodge Avenger Engine Specs
As already mentioned earlier, no one really knows what the new 2017 Dodge Avenger offers beneath its hood. What we know is that the new model will probably offer more power than the previous model which was offered with a 3.6L V6 engine.
The V6 was rated at 283 horsepower and 260 lbs. ft. of torque. With all of this power transmitted to the rear-wheel drive system via the eight-speed automatic transmission system, the Avenger was able to achieve a fuel economy rating of 19/31/23 mpg in the city/highway/combined.
For 2017, however, we expect Dodge to offer the Avenger with a more powerful engine that should enable it provide an output of about 400 horsepower. We expect more specs to be offered as we near its release date.
