The Chrysler Concorde is a full-size sedan that was produced by the American automaker from 1992 to 2004. Renowned for its sleek design and spacious interiors, it was one of the vehicles that inaugurated the company's "cab-forward" design philosophy.
The Chrysler Concorde was available with a range of engines throughout its production run. Initially, it offered a 3.3-liter V6 engine with 153 horsepower and a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 214 horsepower. Later models, particularly the second generation starting from 1998, saw the introduction of a more powerful 3.2-liter V6 and an improved 3.5-liter V6 with 253 horsepower.
All models came with an automatic transmission, ranging from a four-speed to a more advanced Autostick system that allowed manual gear selection.
The Concorde was lauded for its "cab-forward" design, which extended the windshield forward and moved the wheels towards the corners of the car. This resulted in an aerodynamic silhouette and more interior space for passengers.
The Concorde could comfortably seat five people, with optional leather seating. Read more
Safety features included dual front airbags, with side airbags available on later models. Anti-lock brakes were standard on some models and optional on others.
The Chrysler Concorde achieved reasonable success in the market, particularly in the early years of its first generation, when it was well-received for its design and performance. However, towards the end of its production run, the Concorde, like many full-size sedans, faced increased competition from SUVs and crossovers, leading to a decline in sales.
The Concorde was discontinued after the 2004 model year and replaced by the Chrysler 300 in 2005.
