The 2013 Dodge Avenger is offered in SE, SXT, and R/T models. Since SE models include the old-tech four-speed automatic transmission and are geared mainly as a price leader for fleets, we recommend avoiding that model. But SXT models offer a good value, and Dodge has lowered priced on the sporty R/T for 2013.

The base Avenger SE includes air conditioning; power windows, locks and mirrors; 17-inch wheels; a split-folding rear seat; and cloth upholstery, but it's the only model in the lineup to be saddled with a four-speed automatic.

SXT models add (in addition to the better six-speed automatic paired with either engine) a power driver's seat, 17-inch alloys, fog lamps, leather trim, automatic climate control, heated mirrors, and more. A Bluetooth hands-free interface is lacking from much of the lineup, but Satellite radio and a USB port are standard or optional on all models, and a navigation system is now offered on the Avenger, as is a Boston Acoustic premium sound system.

Top-of-the-line R/T models are priced $500 lower for 2013 and get a number of performance appearance cues plus a stiffer suspension, special accented and red-stitched cloth seats (or an all-black interior), red ambient lighting, special red accent stitching throughout, and the Boston Acoustic sound system. Available exclusively on the R/T is a Uconnect Voice Command system that includes a 6.5-inch display, Bluetooth streaming audio, twin USB ports, and navigation with real-time traffic functions.

For 2013, there's also an enhanced Rallye appearance group that brings 18-inch alloy wheels, black-bezel headlamps, a body-color grille, rear spoiler, and available black-and-red cloth interior.

Conclusion

The 2013 Avenger piles on the value with a long list of features, although it's missing Bluetooth at the base level.

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.
