It looks good, nice and tough, not weird like the Japanese competition. G6 GTP still trumps it in looks and hosspowuh, however.

I disagree about the G6 looking better, though I'll give hp...but the Avenger is supposed to have a 6-speed right? 2 more than the G6

Looks much more coherent than the Sebring, but way too similar to the Charger.

Nothing wrong with a family resemblance...plus I think this looks better (gasp!)

Both the sedan and coupe GTP G6 have the 6 speed now, and as far as the avenger goes, it looks like they just took a charger and made it uglier. There is no problem with family resemblence, but it should be well done. I think the front looks decent, but there is something wrong with the rear fender flares. They just look awkward.

It's a 7/8ths Charger.

Not bad at all... except for the power train.

* 173-hp four-cylinder shared with the Dodge Caliber, mated to a four-speed automatic and getting 24/32 mpg city/highway

* 189-hp flexible-fuel V-6 that can run on E85 or gasoline, teamed with a four-speed automatic. Mileage is estimated at 22/30 city/highway

* 235-hp V-6 with Chrysler’s new six-speed transmission, registering mileage of 19/28 mpg city/highway

4-speed on lower models, 6-speed on top model.... just like the G6

It's so much better than the Sebring. It would be even better if its deck was a little bit longer.
