1991[edit | edit source]

Dodge's biggest mid-size sedan, the Monaco, was available in ES and LE models.

1992[edit | edit source]

Due to a market failure, the Monaco was discontinued after the 1992 model year and was replaced by the Dodge Intrepid.

1993[edit | edit source]

Introduced in 1993, the Intrepid is part of Chrysler's LH-car trio, which also includes the sporty Eagle Vision and the luxurious Chrysler Concorde. While the Dodge shares many mechanical components with its sister vehicles, it's aimed at the competitive midsize family sedan market, where it sells against such other front-wheel drive 4-doors as the Ford Taurus, Honda Accord, Nissan Maxima, Toyota Camry and Pontiac's Grand Prix and Bonneville. While most of its competitors are midsize cars, Chrysler's unique "cab-forward" design creates enough interior volume for the EPA to classify the Intrepid as a Large Car. The Intrepid is intended to appeal to a wide range of buyers with a common interest: finding a modestly priced 4-door sedan big enough to carry a family in comfort. Two trim levels are offered: Base and ES. Both feature a 3.3-liter 161-hp ohv V6 engine. Optional powerplant is a 3.5-liter 24-valve 214-hp sohc V6. Both drive through an electronically-controlled 4-speed automatic transaxle that's been refined for 1995. A flexible-fuel 3.3-liter engine is available in California only. It can run on 100% gasoline, an 85%/15% methanol/gasoline mixture (M-85), or any combination of the two. Standard equipment includes dual airbags, AM/FM/cassette stereo, air conditioning, speed-sensitive power steering, childproof rear door locks, tinted glass, courtesy lights, power mirrors, rear-window defroster, tilt steering wheel and power windows. The ES adds 4-wheel disc ABS (optional on the base model) and power door locks. Options include traction control, power moonroof, bench front seat and an integral child safety seat.
