1997 Dodge Avenger Overview

The 1997 Dodge Avenger continues to win praise from owners who love the look and spacious interior of this 2-door coupe.

The styling on the 1997 Dodge Avenger has been tweaked in the front and rear fascias, with a retooled spoiler and fog lights, giving the car an overall sleeker look. New on the ES model are optional 17-inch aluminum wheels. The 16-inch wheels are now standard in all models.

Most notable for the 1997 Avenger is that the V6 engine is now available in both the base and ES models, and the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder five-speed manual is available in the ES. Unfortunately, if you want the increased power of the V6, 2.5-liter 163-horsepower engine, it still only comes in automatic. This is one major complaint of drivers, who want the fun of driving a 5-speed with the power of the V6.

Great handling, a fun drive, and a large interior and trunk are still big pluses. The biggest complaint remains a desire for more power to go with the cool sporty look of the car.
