The Dodge Intrepid is a full-size 4-door sedan introduced in 1993, replacing the Dynasty. The Intrepid (and its other LH corprate mates, the Chrysler Concorde and Eagle Vision), were Chrysler's first "cab-forward" designs that had two major elements: pushing the wheels out to the corners of the car and making the engine compartment large enough for the larger engine.
The Intrepid and Concorde were on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1993 and 1994. The second-generation Intrepid again made the list for 1998 and 1999. Both generations won Consumer Guide's "Best Buy" award. In 2001, the Intrepid made its debut on the NASCAR circuit, signifying the return of Dodge to NASCAR competition after an 18-year hiatus.
DaimlerChrysler discontinued the Intrepid after 2004 to be replaced by the new rear wheel drive LX vehicles; the 2005 Dodge Magnum station wagon and 2006 Dodge Charger sedan. The last Intrepid rolled off the assembly line on August 28, 2004.
