2011 Dodge lineup – Click above for high-res image gallery

Chrysler has bombarded us recently with a huge onslaught of changes for the 2011 model year. In addition to the updated Sebring 200 and Town & Country that wear the Pentastar badge, nearly the entire Dodge model line has been reworked for 2011. To recap, the Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Durango, Grand Caravan and Journey are either all-new or refreshed for the new model year, and the automaker has just announced pricing for the full grip of improved vehicles.

Starting with the all-new products, the 2011 Charger will be priced from $25,170 for the base SE model, which features the automaker's new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and rear-wheel drive. If a fully loaded, Hemi-powered Charger R/T AWD is more your thing, expect to pay $37,320. In addition to the Charger, Dodge debuted the wholly revamped 2011 Durango, which shares its platform with the much-improved Jeep Grand Cherokee. A base, rear-wheel drive Durango Express will set you back $29,195, and pricing goes all the way up to $43,795 for the top-end Citadel AWD.

The rest of the Dodge lineup offers mild exterior refreshes, Pentastar V6 power and huge interior improvements. The 2011 Avenger sedan starts at $19,245 for the four-cylinder Express model, with the $23,545 Lux trim topping things off. The family-friendly 2011 Grand Caravan will command $24,995, and the 2011 Journey rings in at $22,245. Last, but certainly not least, is the 2011 Challenger which makes use of a new 305-horsepower V6 for the base SE, priced from $24,670, and that hot new SRT8 392 will set you back $42,555.

Look for all of these updated Dodges to hit dealerships in December. For the full list of pricing and trim levels, follow the jump to read Chrysler's press blast.

A new and improved powertrain lineup contributes to the 2011 Avenger's driving experience.

      Cheap and junky? How do you figure that? I've seen the pictures of these vehicles, including the Charger picture, plenty of times, and I didn't find anything to indicate that these vehicles looked cheap and junky.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Well, the Avenger pictured is still pretty ugly-looking. Definitely not the pick of the litter. I'll wait for the Fiat products. At least they'll look good.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Oh racism, you always manage to rear your head through the ignorant.
      • 4 Years Ago
      But I do agree the Avenger does look bad.
        • 4 Years Ago
        They should make the headlamp thinner and led surrounded. like the 200 concept. it will be sleek and looks amazing. avenger have so much potential to be an awesome performance sedan. but daimler killed it. same as serbing....
      • 4 Years Ago
      Who cares what they cost? They all look cheap and junky! Challenger being the only exception....
        • 4 Years Ago
        So you say that their new stuff is leaps and bounds better than your Neon. I hope to hell so. I mean, you set the bar so high and all.

        Just sayin'...
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ BigB... what does that stand for, BigB*tthead??? Normally people don't read, I can understand, but apparently you can't even see pictures either? Have you seen the updated interiors? Junky??? On what do you base this exceptional opinion of yours? I have a 2002 Chrysler Neon, and it has nearly 200,000 on the odometre, and only regular maintenance. Their newer stuff is leaps and bounds over my Neon, so I have absolutely no idea what the blazes you are talking about. I also have a 2002 Prius that has not held up nearly as well, enough said.

        With competitive pricing, exceptionally improved interiors and refinement, Chrysler and all its brands are sure to be highly successful until their newer stuff arrives. I am very happy to see such improved product from this company. Go CHRYSLER!!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Hi BigB... thanks for comin' out! Well maturity has taught me to look before I flap my trap. In this case, the art of reading and observing has served me well. You on the other hand have neither seen these cars/trucks in person, nor even bothered to look at the pictures! Dare I say more.... who's butt is hurting now?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Thank you, Travis! There's always a fool out there and "David J" is leading the pact!
      • 4 Years Ago
      So is the Charger getting the 305 hp V6 along side the Challenger? Or is it only getting the 280 hp V6? I think it would be wise of them to use the better of the two considering the size of the Charger.

      I drove an '06 with the 3.5 L 250 hp V6 and it was peppy, but not a good engine for that big of a car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's getting 292hp. Not sure why it's not getting the 305hp of the Challenger. Possibly something to do with gas mileage or insurance costs. The challenger really needed to hit that magic 300 number to compete with the mustang and camaro though.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Its actually the same engine but its tuned differently so i doubt it'd be getting the different "tuning"
      • 4 Years Ago
      wow prices didn't increase that that much(if it all on some models)

      they just need to show us more pictures of the cars

        • 4 Years Ago
        Chrysler prices what the market will bear.

        As these are mostly refreshes of platforms which should have been paid for, any increase should give more haggling room in the showroom, or with the rental car company buyer.

        Hopefully, there's enough built in to fund development of the next generation of cars.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The Avenger definitely looks cheap and junky. That is, the styling is awkward and uninspiring.
      The Charger looks nice from the rear. The front end is okay, but not much of an improvement of the the current and admittedly handsome model.

      The problem I see is they have a uniform corporate face, which makes them all recognizable as Dodge products, but it's not much of a face. Two straight lines intersecting at right angles. Boy, that's outstanding design. They should have taken the opportunity to ditch the boring old "gunsight" grill and come up with something more contemporary.

      If I had to choose between a Dodge and a Ford, I'd definitely buy the Ford. Dodge hasn't figured out how to make consistently reliable cars yet. With Ford, you get good styling and better than average reliability. With Dodge you get...what, an American car with a low price and a higher likelihood of repair bills. No thanks.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @AuroraPilot 3.5: Then the information I found a while back may interest you. Fiat ordered all of Chrysler's plants to adopt its World Class Manufacturing system after taking control. This system should take care of its reliability issues once it's in full swing.

        Unfortunately, it didn't come in time for the recent Consumer Reports reliability survey, which placed Chrysler at the bottom, though it should be noted that they're aware of the quality improvements of the Chrysler vehicles they saw. Like one CR examiner said, we should see how they do next year.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Drove a 09 avenger r/t for about a week. for my point of view, acceleration is better than mazda 6. handle is on par....interior is not quite awesome but its acceptable. don't get me wrong, its acceptable, leather seat is actually comfortable....for 20k vehicle, it gots it value.....

        i am sure the 2011 avenger interior will on par with other vehicles...

        god bless the 2012 viper...
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Arthur003 - Consumer Reports knows nothing. They just sit around waiting for a Toyota to come along to praise it's reliability *No duh! What can go wrong on a box with wheels attached?
        • 4 Years Ago
        @AuroraPilot 3.5 - I didn't say anything about domestic brands. They continually rate Toyota above everything else, Asian, Euro, or American. I mean, they're quality is okay, but it's not outstanding. I mean, think about Volvo - they're definitely more reliable. And safety, oh my god, "Toyotas are safest, blah, blah, blah" I got news for ya, Toyota has proven to be unsafe (they accelerate, and if you say other brands had that problem, give me concrete proof) and now there's nothing particularly different about them! Everyone has side airbags and the same crash protection, there's no way to justify CR's thoughts! Safest brand=Mercedes - THEY have new technology (imagine that!) that is seriously changing the way car safety works
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Nathaniel: Chrysler may disagree with you on that point, considering that Doug Betts, their vice-president for quality matters, mentioned after CR's recent survey that he believes the magazine, among others, will appreciate the quality improvements they're working on.

        It isn't enough for Chrysler to just make quality improvements. Those improvements have to be verified by independent 3rd parties. If they're not, Chrysler might have a problem getting customers to take their claims seriously.
      • 4 Years Ago
      {Please, Please Please} That's the Wrangler begging for the Pentastar V6.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I am a Ford man(barely after my 2010 F150 nightmare), and am excited to see the new Charger live in person. I think this is what I am getting next. No unpainted plastic plastered all over the vehicle(looking at you, Ford), much better rear end(last one could be mixed up with a Mitsubishi), and better interior. This and the Challenger are the only cars I would look at from Dodge. The Avenger still needs a complete redo, but the 200 looks kinda nice to me. Glad to see Chrysler is working hard, sad enough to see so many of our makes gone due to poor management and greed.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Bokou the current Charger does not have the unpainted plastic on any model at the bottom of the car(rocker panels is it), so I imagine this one will not either. I can handle it on the back of a bumper in some cases(in the Mustangs case it is just absurd), and a little on the front bumper but Ford has gone hog wild with this junk and it all fades eventually. I cannot wait for Mays to be out and someone with some taste come in.
        • 4 Years Ago
        And I am all for it. I love chrome. You can have the unpainted junk that fades in a few years thank you. I don't know why people whine about chrome. It's classy and it is part of what made the old cars great! Monochromatic is so sad and boring and all the unpainted plastic plastered all over the Mustang and Taurus screams cheap and unfinished.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Good point.

        I guess I was looking at it more from a performance stand-point. That and I don't think of the Charger as a 4 door sedan - call it old school. =P
        • 4 Years Ago
        I've always liked the Charger, and am especially excited for the new powertrain options (and the slightly revamped exterior), however...

        How can anybody (blatant fanboyism aside) choose a Charger R/T at thirty seven grand when you can get a Mustang GT for nearly $7,000 less?

        I won't get into the weight/power argument, as it's pointless to argue about that stuff. I'm talking a purely cost basis, you have two cars that are fairly competitive to one another... why spend 25% more?

        Thoughts?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nice looking lineup !!

      Haters are jealous Dodge has good looking,reliable vehicles..

      For many years imports have been praised ,and their quality,performance,looks are far worse than any Chrysler product ever was...look at the recalls imports have major engine,transmission,random excelleration,rust,suspension problems..Chrysler has just a few minor issues...wrong tire size stickers on a few vehicles,and a hose with a crimped end that may cause a problem on a few vehicles...No shuddering transmission like my Acura or knocking rod bearings of my old Lexus(2007)..

      As for low resale value....I dont know about that...try to find a low mileage hemi lx car for under 20 grand ! Yeah I looked and looked,sure $15,000 for a 90,000 mile beat up one...

      • 4 Years Ago
      FRANK,

      WELL SAID !!!

      Too many ignorant people out there !!!!
