Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 30 highway (4-cyl, 4-speed auto); 20/31 (4-cyl, 6-speed auto); 19/29 with V-6
U.S. EPA





The 2012 Dodge Avenger is certainly no gas-mileage standout. Base four-cylinder Avenger models are near the back of the pack with respect to fuel economy, at 21 mpg city, 30 highway. The same goes for versions with the Pentastar V-6, at 19/29--though we've noted numbers in the low twenties in spirited driving.

Get the SXT Plus model and you'll upgrade to a six-speed automatic with the four-cylinder. While it's a much more responsive and agreeable combination, from our experience--and it achieves better real-world results--it's actually rated 1 mpg lower in the EPA city test (but 1 mpg higher on the highway) for ratings of 20/31.

Conclusion

The 2012 Dodge Avenger is one of the thirstier options among mid-size sedans.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
