The cost of car insurance for a Dodge Avenger depends on many variables, including your driving history, prior claims history and even what zip code you live in.

Most car insurance companies even pull a credit check to measure you risk level. It is the combination of all these factors (and more) which influence the cost of car insurance for any vehicle.

You can type your zip code into the box above to get more information about car insurance rates, but before you do, check out the information below.

History of the Dodge Avenger

The original Dodge Avenger was as a 2-door sport coupe that was on the market between 1995 and 2000. After a brief hiatus, it returned to the market as a 4-door sedan in 2008 to replace the Dodge Stratus.

The new sedan version has sold over 140,000 units in the United States since it was first unveiled in 2008.

The Dodge Avenger in Motorsports

In 2007, the Dodge Avenger took over for the Dodge Charger to represent Dodge in NASCAR’s Car of Tomorrow races. Driver Juan Pablo Montoya piloted the Dodge Avenger to its first victory in the 2007 Toyota/Save Mart 350 in Sonoma, California.

Despite this victory, Dodge switched its Car of Tomorrow back to the Charger the following year.

Dodge Avenger Sedan Trims

In 2011, the Dodge Avenger line was revamped to include the Express, Mainstreet, Lux and Heat trims. The Express, Mainstreet and Lux all come standard with 2.4 liter I4 engine, while the Heat model is equipped with the more powerful 3.6 liter V6 VVT Pentastar.

All models are outfitted with 6-speed automatic transmissions except for the Avenger Express, which features a 4-speed automatic transmission.

When it comes to audio features, there’s also a substantial difference between the available trims. The Express and Mainstreet include four and six speakers, respectively, and both feature a Media Center 130 with a built-in CD/MP3 player.

Drivers of the Lux and Heat models enjoy the Media Center 430 with CD, DVD and HDD capability, as well as six speakers and 6.5 inch touch screen. All models but the Express come standard with a 1-year subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

If gas mileage is a major concern for you, the Express leads the pack with 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, compared to 20/31 mpg for the Mainstreet and Lux and 19/29 for the Heat.

The Avenger Express has an MSRP of $19,245, while the Heat has a somewhat higher price tag at $23,745 MSRP.

Dodge Avenger Warranty and Safety Ratings

Dodge offers a fairly standard warranty package for all Avenger models. This includes a 3-year or 36,000 mile basic warranty and a 5-year or 100,000 mile powertrain and rust-though warranty.

Since the Dodge Avenger was so recently retooled, safety ratings are not yet available.

However, models from past years have received favorable ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

How much is car insurance for the Dodge Avenger

Car insurance rates for the Dodge Avenger will depend not just on which trim you select, but also on personal factors like your location, age, gender and marital status.

However, consumer surveys have found that the average annual car insurance rates for the Avenger are approximately $1,550 per year, or around $130 per month.

This is a bit on the high side compared to similarly situated cars like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, which have average rates that are about $10 lower per month.

It is important to keep in mind, though, that these are average rates, and your rate could be much lower or higher.

The best way to find out what your car insurance rate will be is to enter your zip code in the box.
