Chrysler Group will reveal a concept car that hints at a brand new Dodge saloon car that will be on sale in the UK by the middle of next year.

Dodge is looking to break new ground with the all-new Dodge Avenger concept – a bold styling statement that does away with the idea that a functional family car is automatically boring.

The Avenger concept will appeal to car buyers around the world who need the practicality, functionality and fuel efficiency of a mid-size saloon, but want more, including a vehicle that stands out and makes a statement. Avenger’s bold muscle car styling, innovative features and solid performance will allow them to do just that.

Peter Lambert added: “While the Avenger concept only hints at the latest vehicle from Dodge, it will do what Caliber has done for the family hatchback and what Nitro promises to do in the 4×4 segment – it offers a unique alternative to the competition. The Dodge Caliber has been a big success with the car-buying public so we are expecting great things from our two new Dodge vehicles next year.”

From the front, large quad headlamps surrounded by black housings create the distinctive glare that forms Avenger’s face and surround the signature Dodge crosshair grille. Avenger’s side profile is distinguished by a long bonnet, short deck lid proportions with muscular rear shoulders and sleek rear spoiler. This concept’s long glasshouse is created by the use of a high-gloss black B-pillar and aerodynamic inspired rear door appliqués, which make this mid-size saloon look like it’s pouncing forward, even when it’s at a standstill.

Deep side sills, nineteen-inch five-spoke painted satin silver wheels and deep red brake callipers add to the Avenger concept’s sporty look. Chrome-tipped dual exhaust outlets communicate the performance capability of the Avenger concept’s 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine.
