2004 Dodge Stratus Coupe - Price Quote

Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Stratus Coupe.

The Dodge Stratus coupe skids into 2004 without much change from last year's model. While the 2004 Stratus sedan was given a fresh front styling makeover mid-model year and a redesignation as a 2004 model, Stratus coupes got their new look last fall. However, that isn't to say that they are out-of-date. But if you missed picking up last year's model, there's plenty of time to get the new Stratus coupe.

The two-door 2004 Dodge Stratus coupe is perfect for taking tight turns, but it also has the type of road manners and interior comfort for long, cross-country treks. It is cool enough for first dates; big enough for first times, as Dodge puts it. Style, handling and practicality come together with the Stratus coupe.

Available Models
The 2004 Dodge Stratus coupe is offered in an entry-level SXT model and an R/T model.

Interior Features
Five passengers fit nicely into the two-door coupe. It offers 16.3 cubic feet of cargo room to handle a wide variety of transporting needs. In terms of features, the base SXT standard package includes air conditioning, an AM/FM radio with in-dash 4-disc CD changer, cruise control, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat, a center console, power mirrors, windows and door locks and a rear defogger. The R/T model adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, remote keyless entry, an Infinity sound system and more.

The makers at Dodge keep a nice options list handy in case potential buyers want to spice up either coupe model. A Leather Interior Package, offered with R/T models, consists of plush leather upholstery, a 6-way power passenger seat, a universal garage door opener, an automatic day/night rearview mirror, an outside temperature indicator and a compass.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Dodge Stratus coupe has a sleeker, flashier exterior design than the sedan. This is especially so of the R/T model, which comes with a rear spoiler, alloy wheels and integrated fog lights. In addition, with the R/T a power sunroof is available.

Though it will never be confused with a high-powered roadster, the 2004 Dodge Stratus coupe is nevertheless no slouch either. The efficient engine under the hood of the base SXT is a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder model that provides 147 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 158 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. If you want more power, you need only ascend to the R/T, which ups the juice with a 3.0-liter V6 engine that can produce 200 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 205 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm.=

Both engines can be mated to either 4-speed automatic transmission or 5-speed manual transmission. With the R/T, Dodge offers available AutoStick manual shift capability that gives drivers of automatic-transmission models the option to take over the shifting when they want. The handling is also a little tighter on R/Ts, thanks to its steering setup and sport suspension.

Safety and Security
The 2004 Dodge Stratus coupe has a safety cage construction with steel side-guard door beams. 4-wheel disc antilock brakes with low-speed traction control are available on R/T models and side airbags are available on both coupe models.
