21 mpg city, 30 highway (four-cyl, four-speed auto); 20/31 mpg (four-cyl, six-speed auto); 19/29 mpg with V-6
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 are rated at 21 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, placing them near the very back of the pack.
With the SXT model you upgrade to the six-speed automatic with the four-cylinder. That's more responsive and agreeable, and it achieves better real-world results. Oddly, it's actually rated 1 mpg lower in the EPA city test (but 1 mpg higher on the highway), for a rating of 20/31 mpg altogether.The Pentastar V-6 isn't great, either, at 19/29 mpg--though we've noted numbers in the low twenties in spirited driving.
Gas mileage is a major disappointment in the mid-size Avenger, even with the four-cylinder engine.
