Uh-oh. We have a sneaking suspicion we aren't supposed to be seeing what we're seeing right now. Of course, this isn't the first pic of the Dodge Avenger that has leaked (that would be this one), but this does look like an official pic rather than one snapped in a warehouse. Ah well, another mighty embargo dam has sprung a leak. CarScoop reports that while the Dodge Avenger will be officially labeled as a concept when it saunters into Paris next week, what you see is basically the production version. No information on what powers the beast, but we will say that the Avenger is a sight for sore eyes, which is a malady usually brought on by staring too much at the Avenger's sister car, the Chrysler Sebring.

      I must be in a minority too because i have no problem with dodge cars, of course i sell them too but still. I have an appereciation for a lot of cars, sure the dodge style may not be for all but those who like them like them a lot.

      To each his own though.

      The photo makes the Avenger look really good. To bad its not going to be anything like its larger cousin the Dodge Charger. But I think thats going to be ok with people that can't quite afford a Charger, or just want something smaller.

      Too bad though... I would be one of gladly be one of those people that will buy this thing, but only if they just threw in AWD, a stick shift, and some power.

      Not sure I like the front bumper. Then agian, I'm probably not the target market for an Avenger, either.

      I like the styling more than the other options out there. After factoring in build quality, however, I don't know if this would be my choice until I had a chance to really look at it and do some research.

      It doesn't look nearly as good as my '96 Avenger ES did!

      Charger + Caliber = Avenger. I guess that's what they want - a family resemblence. Looks a lot more cohesive than the mishmash that is the Sebring.

      Another hideous Dodge with pisspoor visibility. No one change lanes around these things.

      I don't see anything noteable here. It just looks like a mini version of the charger. I don't think this will help Dodges slumping sales. On the other hand the new Saturn is sweet!!!

      I might be in the minority here, but so be it. I was at FedEx field today for Chrysler/Dodge training we have to go through at my dealership and the new Sebring was there to look at and drive. It really isn't a bad looking car, in fact I really like it having now seen it in person. It is MUCH better looking in person imo then it is in the photos I have seen of it. It also drives pretty well... certainly an upgrade over the previous generation.

      Oh, and yes... MyGig system is great.

      I love it. Very aggressive and sporty looking car for it's segment and it oozes head-turning style. Style that's sorely missing from the Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura, both of which are pretty bland. It also looks much better than the Sebring.

      The cladding comment is funny too. I don't see any ribs tacked on the sides of the Avenger.

      I wonder if SRT will be doing anything with this car? That would be interesting. Afterall, SVT certainly doesn't seem to be doing anything with the Ford Fusion.
