Dodge Avenger History


The Dodge Avenger was first introduced to the North American market in back 1995. Since its initial introduction, the Avenger has had a spotty track record in the car industry, taking a hiatus for seven years from 2000-2007 before finally returning and establishing itself as a contender for the Dodge brand.

Early History

The history of the Dodge Avenger is a spotty one: it began in North America in 1995 as a two-door coupe manufactured in Normal, Illinois. After being discontinued in 2000, the Avenger returned to the car market with a vengeance as a sedan in February 2007, replacing the Dodge Stratus in the American carmaker’s lineup.

Recent History

When the Avenger was first reintroduced in 2000, it was a two-door coupe with two simple trim levels—the base, Highline, and the ES. Now, the Avenger is a four-door sedan that offers three different trim levels and a variety of powertrains.
