An internal memo from Chrysler HQ to its dealer network outlined the company’s plans to start building the Dodge Avenger and eventually, launch an all-new minivan by September next year. Somehow reporters got their hands on it, with the details now printed in an article from the Detroit Free Press. The memo confirmed also that we’ll be able to see the Avenger in showrooms by February. Remember that the car was first displayed in concept/prototype form at the Paris Motor Show less than two months ago.

The Avenger replaces the Stratus old-timer as Dodge’s new midsize sedan, and will be produced at Chrysler’s Sterling Heights plant alongside its Sebring line of cars. Unlike Ford and GM, who are dropping their range of minivans, Chrysler, the company that invented the segment, will be releasing the next-generation of its Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country. The car has been caught recently by spy photographers and should be in showrooms by September.
