2014 Dodge Avenger Topeka KS
There’s an increasing number of manufacturers who are beginning to shoehorn V6 engines into the nose of the sedans in their lineups, but none of those engines compare to the one found under the hood of the 2014 Dodge Avenger in Topeka, KS.
The 3.6-liter Pentastar engine of the Avenger is found in a wide variety of models from the Chrysler Group—and for good reason. Over the years, the engine has been tweaked to perfection, a claim that is backed by the Pentastar’s spot on Ward’s 10 Best Engines of 2013 list. What helps the V6 to stand out from others in the segment is that it’s capable of producing a best-in-class output of 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, yet it’s still able to provide fuel economy ratings that typically could only be achieved by a four-cylinder.
When paired with the six-speed automatic transmission, the six-cylinder delivers a highway fuel economy rating of 29 mpg. For those more concerned about efficiency, the four-cylinder travels an extra 2 mpg in both the city and highway cycle, but it sacrifices a little more than 100 horsepower. The Pentastar V6 reigns supreme.
Safety Comes Standard in the 2014 Avenger
The 2014 Dodge Avenger has been successful because it caters to a wide variety of consumers. Most come for the looks, but they stay for the safety. The Avenger recently received the coveted Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS, making it one of the safest V6-powered sedans currently on the market.
The rating comes thanks to a variety of safety upgrades that help to direct impact through the high-strength steel frame, rather than through the passenger cabin. Among those systems is a series of crumple zones which absorb a great deal of energy in both front and rear collisions. Of course all of the impact cannot be absorbed by the frame, so a number of airbags have been added to protect you and your most precious cargo in the event of an accident. That includes side-curtain airbags that stretch along the length of the cabin to ensure that absolutely everyone is protected. To assist in keeping those airbags from ever having to be deployed, the Avenger comes standard with brake assist and stability and traction control.

Even the most advanced R/T trim, which comes standard with the Pentastar V6, has an MSRP that just barely breaks the $25,000 barrier. When compared to the price of other sporty, performance-driven cars, it’s easy to see why the Avenger is quickly becoming one of the most popular sedans on the market.
