2014 Dodge Avenger Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

If you're looking for a green- or budget-conscious midsize sedan, the 2014 Dodge Avenger isn't one of the best choices on the market.

Base SE models with the old four-speed automatic transmission are rated at 24 mpg combined (21 mpg city, 30 mpg highway), placing them near the very back of the pack.

Gas mileage is a major disappointment in the mid-size Avenger, even with the four-cylinder engine.

With the SXT model you upgrade to the six-speed automatic with the four-cylinder. While it's more responsive and agreeable, its real-world results are generally better--but its EPA rating stays the same, at 24 mpg combined. Oddly, it's actually rated 1 mpg lower in the EPA city test, at 20 mpg, but 1 mpg higher on the highway, at 31 mpg.

The optional Pentastar V-6 and six-speed automatic isn't great on fuel economy either, at 22 mpg combined (19 mpg city, 29 mpg highway)--though we've noted numbers in the low 20s in spirited driving.
