2001 Dodge Stratus Overview

2001 brought about a redesign of Dodge's midsized sedan, the Stratus. First and foremost, the 2001 Dodge Stratus is no longer just a Sedan; a Coupe trim has been added to the lineup. The engines have all been upgraded as well, with more, bigger engine options available, all with more horsepower: a 3.0-liter V6, a 2.7-liter V6, and a 2.4-liter I4. Depending on the engine of course, the 2001 Dodge Stratus gets between 20 and 30 miles per gallon. And with engine choices producing a range of horsepower from 158 to 202, that's not bad gas mileage.

Options are aplenty on the 2001 Dodge Stratus, both comfort and safety-wise. Air conditioning, a CD player, Cruise Control, Dual Airbags, and ABS are all available in the 2001 Dodge Stratus. Plenty of room in the backseats of the Dodge Stratus for a couple of kids, and the trunk can fit most groceries or sports equipment or whatever it is that you need to carry. The 2001 Dodge Stratus Sedan is a family car that now has some more sporty options in the form of the Coupe.

Owners of the 2001 Dodge Stratus seem to like this year more than previous owners did. There are fewer complaints, though they are the same: brakes and transmissions. However, there is a new source of excitement for owners: the power of the engine, an often ignored part of previous year models. Owners still like the room inside the 2001 Dodge Stratus. Overall, both the Sedan and the Coupe seem to be good options for reliable transportation.
