U.S. buyers snapped up new cars and trucks in June at a pace not seen since before the recession.
From minicars to monster pickups, sales of new cars and trucks surged in June, and eased concerns that Americans would be turned off by slower hiring and other scary headlines.
Dodge announced the new 2012 Avenger SE V6 package, developed to be America's most affordable and powerful mid-size car, delivering unprecedented performance and value for driving enthusiasts. The new Avenger SE V6 model has a starting U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of just $21,495 (excluding destination) and is powered by a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, one of Ward's "10 Best Engines," mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 3.6-liter Pentastar engine produces a best-in-class 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque while achieving an EPA estimated 29 miles per gallon (mpg) highway, best-in-class for a V-6-powered mid-size sedan.
The year may be young, but Dodge brand vehicles are continuing to gain momentum, earning recognition from both new car buyers and the media, alike.
"The affordability of cars is probably at an all-time high," Chrysler Group sales chief Reid Bigland said last week.
