You may recall that we recently announced (fine, bragged) that the Charger was an IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) top safety pick in the Large Cars category. Well, we’re back to do it again: The Avenger continued to hold a Top Safety Pick for the midsized cars segment in 2011. Scoring top rank for several important tests (front, side, rollover and rear impact, not to mention bonus points for the electronic stability control), the Avenger can officially continue to pack “safety” under its belt, right next to its great style, efficiency and performance.

Just as Motor Trend recently found out, we aren’t messing around with the Avenger. The latest model has grown in leaps and bounds over the last one, and is more than ready to take on the big boys. Thanks in no small part to the availability of our tremendous new 283 horsepower 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine (one of Ward’s 10 Best, we might add), upscale interior and comfortable ride, the Avenger is easily one of the smartest choices out there for you guys who want it all, and now you can rest assured we’ve got you covered safety-wise as well. Don’t expect anything less from us, though, as we plan to keep dishing out the 1-2 punches until everyone out there has taken notice. It’s going to be a fun ride.
