Chrysler today announced they will unveil the Avenger R/T at the upcoming New York International Auto Show. R/T Chryslers are hotted-up versions of the normal models.

The 2012 Avenger R/T is powered by a 283 horsepower version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine (EPA fuel economy rating of 19 mpg city and 29 mpg highway), mated to a six-speed automatic transaxle. It features uprated suspension for better handling and a body kit to look the part.

On the outside the car features body-color grille with the Dodge badge, menacing black headlamp background, the “war paint” R/T decal on the front quarter panel and unique 18-in. painted aluminum wheels. The performance elements carry through to the rear of the vehicle with a spoiler and the “R/T” badge. Interior changes include distinctive Aunde fabric with Z stripe fabric inserts, red stitching and aggressive leather-trimmed bolsters that hold drivers and passengers firmly in their seats when they put the Avenger to the test. The front seats are heated and sport an “R/T” graphic stitched in red on the front headrests

Other highlights of the cabin include unique gauge cluster with a center-mounted tachometer with the “R/T” graphic and SRT-inspired brake and accelerator pedal pads. The steering wheel is wrapped in perforated leather with red accent stitching. It also gets a Boston Acoustic sound system with 276-watt touchscreen entertainment center and a 30-gigabyte hard drive.

Thanks to the R/T treatment, the Avenger which to be honest is a very average car, turns into a cool and sporty sedan. Pricing of the car has not been revealed yet.
