Expert Quotes:

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





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.

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.

 

Conclusion

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

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.
