Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Stratus Coupe.

The 2005 Stratus Coupe is one of those vehicles that makes you want to keep on driving. It handles like a dream, with power steering that is well attuned to your touch.

Dodge offers the Stratus Coupe as an affordable model that brings a bit of everything. It offers the some of the best value for your money required to. This is based on a variety of measures including styling, performance, fuel economy, purchase price and ownership costs.

Available Models
The 2005 Dodge Stratus coupe is offered in an entry-level SXT model and an R/T model. The Stratus sedan is covered in a separate review.

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.

There are quite a number of options this year as well. 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 2005 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.

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.

The R/T has a considerable increase in power. It uses a 3.0-liter V6 engine that can produce 200 horsepower at 5500 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 2005 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.
