Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Stratus.

A sleek and daring design is the hallmark of the new 2002 Dodge Stratus Coupe. With equally bold performance to match, the Stratus Coupe offers dynamic handling and a fun ride. Introduced just last year, it provide much more powerful powertrain options that its predecessor, the Avenger.

Available Models
The Dodge Stratus Coupe is available in two models - the four-cylinder Stratus SE Coupe and the powerful six-cylinder Stratus R/T Coupe.

Interior Features

Within the cabin of the sporty Stratus SE Coupe are available comforts and conveniences such as an AM/FM stereo radio with four-disc CD changer and six speakers in the Touring package. The Stratus R/T Coupe comes standard with a premium seven-speaker Infinity audio system with AM/FM stereo and four-disc CD changer. A more basic AM/FM cassette player and CD player is available as an option on the R/T.

With a seating capacity of five passengers, the Stratus Coupe comes with additional standards like a 60/40 split folding seat to accommodate extra cargo while seating either one or two passengers in the back seat. The trunk features the best space in its class - 16.3 cubic feet of cargo area.

New for 2002 is a standard battery saver that will turn off interior lights after three minutes if the lights are left on when the ignition is off. No more frantic phone calls to a two truck for a boost!

Exterior Features
The Dodge Stratus Coupe is marked by a decidedly sporty appearance, bearing defined exterior lines and cues from muscle cars that make it an attractive vehicle to the younger set. The Stratus wears the signature Dodge "cross-hair: grille and refined tail lights that enhance the strong stance and aerodynamic profile. Two new colors are available this year - Caffe Latte and Dark Titanium Metallic.

In this department, the Dodge Stratus SE Coupe is equipped with a 2.4-litre, single overhead camshaft, sixteen-valve, in-line four-cylinder engine that delivers 147 horsepower and 158 lb-ft of torque. It accelerated quickly and easily. The standard transmission is a five-speed manual - perfect for maximizing the engine's acceleration capabilities. Automatic transmission is available as an option, as is the six-cylinder engine that is standard on the Stratus R/T Coupe. Sixteen-inch tires are standard.

The Dodge Stratus R/T Coupe is built with an impressive 3.0-litre, single overhead camshaft, twenty-four valve, six-cylinder engine that cranks out 200 horsepower and 205 lb-ft of torque for a truly exceptional drive. The standard transmission is again five-speed manual, with optional AutoStick with automatic-equipped models.

A more substantial rear sway bar and rear suspension lateral link bushing, along with sport-tuned shocks and struts, provide for precision handling and tight cornering. The R/T is fitted with seventeen-inch performance tires.

Safety and Security
The Dodge Stratus Coupe is designed with front and rear crumple zones and side impact door beams to channel the energy of an impact away from passengers. Each vehicle is equipped with safety standards such as three-point seatbelts at all outboard passenger positions, a driver depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, and head restraints.
