Considering what they did this year which - aside from the blacktop addition - was next to nothing, I would expect the same for 2014. Chrysler-FIAT is at a point where they will invest no money into the old architecture. All resources are going into the development of the new platform. I expect the only thing you'll see is a continuation of the discounts and incentives you've been seeing for the last few years.What will they do to keep people interested for another year?
Why live in a fantasy world? Find a NOS SRT-6 badge on ebay to put on your Avenger. That's the about as close as you'll get!I know this is a HUGE dream but wouldn't an SRT version help boost sales? I know it will never happen so don't blast me with reasons why it won't. I just want to live in my fantasy world.
o Jan 2013-Dodge brand sales up 37 percent; best January sales since 2008 and largest
year-over-year percentage increase of any Chrysler Group brand
Top-selling Chrysler models in January included the Dodge Avenger mid-sized sedan that saw sales jump 69 percent from last year and the Ram pickup truck that saw a 14 percent increase.
it is still a doomed dead car and platform. if they said it was going to stay, then they might look into it. Since it is a one year stay of execution, it still won't be worth it. Not to mention, the notion is, you bought a venge cause you couldn't afford the bigger faster counterparts.Here's something the could be good for the Avenger's life extension:
With an extra year on the market, aftermarket companies like Diablosport and Hypertech may be more motivated to release a tuner for these cars.
MMM... probably more so the deal on it was so good it was hard to pass up. That said, you're right, it's a dead-car-rolling and it's hard to make a business case for it.it is still a doomed dead car and platform. if they said it was going to stay, then they might look into it.

I agree with that but respectfully when I was modding my Challenger there really wasnt a whole lot of aftermarket for it either. Yes more then my Avenger but not as much as say for the Charger and 300 lines.I am not saying that that's why we bought them or not. But that is the aspect the after market companies are looking at it from. There is 1000x more profit out there for the charger and the challenger market, because they are "proper" RWD muscle cars.
