There was only one trim level, but a choice of two engines, a 3.3-liter 161-hp ohv V6 or a 3.5-liter 214-hp 24-valve sohc V6. Both engines were mounted longitudinally (front-to-rear), as opposed to the transverse (sideways) engine placement of most front-drive cars. This placement improved front-to-rear weight distribution somewhat, for better handling and vehicle stability. Both engines were mated to a 4-speed electronically controlled transaxle.

Chrysler's much-touted "cab-forward" design, which pushed the wheels toward the corners of the car and extended the windshield forward over the front axle line, resulting in more interior room than most of its competitors, and the Concorde was officially listed by the EPA as a Large Car.
