2001 Dodge Stratus 4.1 19
$ 306-5,450
April 27, 2001
Vehicle Overview
Dodge drops the Avenger name for its front-drive coupe and introduces a new version called the Stratus. Although the Dodge lineup also features a redesigned Stratus sedan, the coupe is not genetically related.

The coupe is based on the platform used for the Mitsubishi Galant and employs Mitsubishi engines, but the styling comes from DaimlerChrysler. The Chrysler division offers a similar coupe under the Sebring label. Mitsubishi builds the Stratus and Sebring coupes at its Illinois plant.

The Stratus sedan and similar Chrysler Sebring sedan are designed and built by parent company DaimlerChrysler. Chrysler also sells a Sebring convertible — derived from the sedan — that Dodge does not get.

The Stratus coupe has the same basic styling as its Chrysler counterpart. Dodge gives its version a different grille, front fascia and taillights. The Stratus qualifies for midsize status with an overall length of 190 inches. However, the 103.7-inch wheelbase makes it a compact by the cars.com measuring stick.

Dodge says the rear seat in the five-passenger Stratus has more room than most coupe rivals. Front bucket seats are standard, and the 16.3-cubic foot trunk expands by folding the split rear seatback.

Air conditioning, power windows and locks, and a six-speaker sound system are standard. An Infinity seven-speaker system with cassette and CD players is optional.

Under the Hood
The base engine for the Stratus coupe is a 142-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder, and the optional engine is a 3.0-liter V-6 with 200 hp. Both are supplied by Mitsubishi and are available with a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. The AutoStick feature, an automatic transmission that allows manual gear changes by tipping the shift lever, is available with the V-6 engine.

Antilock brakes and traction control are optional.
