Dodge Avenger Discontinued after 2014 Model Year

With automakers constantly updating their lineups and rebuilding vehicles, there is a time when a vehicle is no longer made, and that time has come for a great Dodge vehicle. It is announced that after 2014 we can see the Dodge Avenger discontinued.

Chrysler, as a whole, has decided that they want to start straying away from having “sister” vehicles within different, but connecting, brands. (i.e. Dodge and Chrysler) Now, after having the Dodge Avenger discontinued, the Chrysler 200 will be able to take over as the only midsize sedan.

“There is not an Avenger version of the new 200 planned, “ confirms Kathy Graham, product PR manager for the Chrysler Group. “The 2014 MY (model year) Dodge Avenger started production in July, 2013 and is scheduled to end in Q1 2014,” she stated. (article by Stephen Elmer of AutoGuide.com)

Now that the Dodge Avenger will be out of the picture, we can expect to see a rise in other vehicles from the Dodge family, such as the Dodge Dart and Dodge Durango.

Since you are going to be running out of time to get the Dodge Avenger, make sure you stop by Corwin Dodge in Springfield, MO and take one for a test drive. You may just want to go home with the future Dodge Avenger discontinued vehicle.

Gas Saving Tips You Might Not Have Thought Of

Gas Saving Tips You Might Not Have Thought OfWe all know what owning a car really feels like, “Oh man I have to stop for gas again?!” (Unless of course you have decided to purchase to a hybrid or all-electric vehicle) But this isn’t the way it should have to be. There are many gas saving tips that you know the trick to, but what about some gas saving tips you might not have thought of?

Gas Saving Tips You Might Not Have Thought Of

Lose Some Weight – No, we don’t mean yourself, we mean in your vehicle! When you leave excess weight in your car it makes the engine work hard to move and, in turn, use more gas. Extra weight can be anything such as clothes, sports equipment, or bodies (just kidding!!).

Be Efficient! B-E Efficient! – While that is lame as a cheer, it makes a lot of sense! According to FuelEconomy.Gov, “Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration, and braking) wastes gas. It can lower your gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds and by 5% around town.”

Racks on Racks on Racks – Making your vehicle aerodynamic will help to use less gas. So, on your SUV remove those roof racks and rails in order to help prevent wind resistance.

Catch a Cold – it is known fact that most liquids expand in heat, and the same goes for gasoline. Try to put gas in your car in the morning. That way as the temperature rises throughout the day the gas will expand and then you will save some gas!

Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way – There are always other options than driving (depending on how far away you are). Catch a bus, ride a bike, or even walk if you want.

While you may or may not want to take our advice, Corwin Dodge just wants to remind you that gas prices are continuously on the rise, and it is going to become more and more expensive to fill up your tank.
