Dodge Lowers Prices on 2010 Vehicles
Dodge is looking to bring customers back with more standard options and lower suggested retail prices as the company continues to restructure itself.
For example, the midsize 2010 Dodge Avenger sedan is $1,000 less than the 2009 model even though it comes with standard satellite radio, heated seats and bluetooth and iPod connectivity, running just under $20,000. The Heat upgrade increases wheel size to 18 inches, fog lights and an upgraded Boston Acoustics stereo system for $1,000 more.
Doing more with less is also the case for the 2010 Dodge Nitro compact crossover. It will cost $23,995, but include a 4 liter V6 engine standard. It's counterpart, the Journey, is several hundred dollars cheaper, and is now available with cruise control and larger wheels for $21,165.
If you've been looking to buy a new Dodge car, now is the time to consider them. Updated interiors and features now cost less than bare bone models did in previous years. Nearly every model in the lineup offers better seats, plastic trim in the interior and connectivity with your mobile devices.

California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
