LAWRENCE, Kan., Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In many states throughout the nation, gas prices are the lowest they have been in three years and consumers are continuing to take advantage of the savings. The low prices are also sparking an interest in larger, more powerful engines as the lower fuel economy ratings aren't as financially taxing as they once were. The 2014 Dodge Avenger in particular is rising in popularity as it offers an impressively powerful V-6 engine that is nearly as efficient as the four-cylinder option.
The new Avenger, which continues to arrive at dealerships around the nation such as Briggs Chrysler in Lawrence, Kan., is equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine that was recently named on of Ward's 10 Best Engines of 2013. The award-winning engine can be found under the hood of a wide variety of models from the Chrysler Group.
When paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the six-cylinder is able to achieve a highway fuel economy rating of 29 mpg. The rating is just two miles per gallon less than the four-cylinder option. Consumers are also sure to appreciate that the V-6 Pentastar is capable of a best-in-class output of 283 horsepower.
In addition to the superior performance, the 2014 Dodge Avenger has been recognized as one of the safest mid-size cars currently available on the market. It was recently given a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The rating comes courtesy of a number of safety systems that direct the energy from collisions around, rather than through the passenger compartment.
To assist consumers in the research process, Briggs Chrysler has specifically dedicated a Web page to the 2014 Dodge Avenger. On top of the informative model page, the dealership recently launched a list of Daily Deals which are cars exclusively chosen by the sales staff for their success in the market, reasonable mileage and excellent condition.
