...It looks big, it seats five in relative comfort, yet surprisingly, it doesn't drive like a large car.
And with a choice of three well-equipped models, the
Intrepid can serve as anything from a stylish family sedan to a bargain sport sedan.Published: 10/02/2004 Updated: 10/02/2009 What's New for 2004: No changes for 2004.
Pros: Plenty of passenger and luggage capacity, agile handling, powerful engines. Cons: Dated ergonomics, blind spots when backing up, engine noise when pressed...

1993 Dodge Intrepid Professional Review

...There are no lights under the shift indicator letters on the center shift quadrant for night driving, and things would go better if there were. The test ES had Chrysler's 3.3- liter push-rod V-6. Unlike today's common practice of mounting the engine transverse in the chassis for use with front-wheel drive, the 3.3 is mounted in-line. The engine provided a lively if not a barn-burner performance. Drag-race devotees probably will be happier with a new, optional, 24-valve 3.5-liter V-6 tha t operates its four valves per cylinder via a single overhead cam (per bank) and rocker arms. The 3.5-liter...

...A 60/40-split, folding rear seatback is standard in the ES and SXT sedans and optional in the SE. In addition to the stronger engine, the SXT option includes a 120-watt six-speaker CD stereo, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and an eight-way power driver’s seat. Under the Hood Three engines are available. A 200-horsepower, 2.7-liter V-6 goes into the SE sedan, while the upscale ES gets a 232-hp, 3.5-liter V-6.

...Chrysler says that in today's conventional passenger car, 6 5 percent of the vehicle's overall length is dedicated to driver, passengers and cargo space. With the company's new cabin-forward design that interior space application has been increased to more than 75 percent. Under the hood, the LH cars break about as much new ground as does the styling. Two engines will be available, a redesigned standard 3.3-liter, overhead-valve V-6, and an optional 3.5-liter, 24-valve V-6 that tends to go its own way. Today's V-6s that possess four valves per cylinder usually have four overhead cams to...

...bringing it closer in line to the ES, by making 16-inch wheels, front fascia fog lamps, power heated mirrors, power locks, and a tachometer standard. Its exterior was made a bit more stylish, like the sportier ES. On all models, an on-board engine diagnostic system was included. The ES distinguished itself by offering more luxurious options, such as leather seats and a sunroof, but also came standard with ABS brakes and a suspension designed for sports handling. New in 1996 was a more soundproof design in order to reduce road noise and vibrations.The 1996 Intrepid is popular for its energetic...

...and problems with rear visibility are glad to see this car go.The 2004 Dodge Intrepid did not change from 2003, since Dodge was preparing to replace it with its upcoming Magnum. Offered in SE, SXT, and ES trims, all with a V6 engine (ranging from 200 to 234 to 250-hp) and 4-speed automatic, the Intrepid was a speedy family car. Fitting five or six inside, depending on what types of seats you opted for, the once unique cab-forward design allowed for a bigger cab with more head, leg, and elbow room. Its suspension and longer wheelbase meant a firmer, smoother ride, though efforts to reduce road...

1993 Dodge Intrepid Professional Review

...The Intrepid ES has a wide stance that gives the car a flat, solid and sure-footed feel. Road noise is still somewhat loud. The suspension system can be heard when driving over such things as potholes and speed bumps. If Chrysler engineers can find a way to silence the suspension system, the Intrepid ES can be America's Lexus ES 300. FIT AND FINISH The Intrepid is far and away the best-built sedan Chrysler has ever made. There were no manufacturing flaws of any kind in the test car. And it was loaded with user-friendly features and safety items. On the inside, the lighted switches have a...

1993 Dodge Intrepid Professional Review

...Go figure. Intrepid's interior is a broad, deep majestic sweep that doesn't just contain occupants, it e nvelopes and keeps them. The dash--built around an instrument cowl that borrows the ultra-legible white dials, black numbers and orange needles of Viper gauges--curves into four corners that merge softly into doors for visual continuity. There's head, shoulder and leg room galore, front and back. The seats, although comfortable for sedate travel, are not fully supportive when fun driving builds centrifugal forces. They also seem set higher. No amount of jiggling with seat settings returned...
