2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan - Price Quote

Visit Chrysler for more information on the Chrysler Sebring Sedan.

Affordability has always been a benchmark of Sebring models. Chrysler seems bent on attracting as many customers as possible with this versatile series, offering coupes, convertibles and the sedan as well as a host of different model trims, engines and appointments. And again, all of this is packaged and wrapped up at a reasonable price.

In 2003, the Chrysler Sebring's variety of performance, style, handling and comfort earned it a coveted Recommended choice from that mainstay of objectivity, Consumer Guide. But it was no fluke. For 2004, the Sebring family reaps in the award yet again. Obviously, they are doing something right.

Available Models
The 2004 Chrysler Sebring sedan if offered in two distinct trims: LX and LXi.

Interior Features
The four-door sedan is the largest Sebring of them all. It has a healthy wheelbase of 108 inches, a height of 70.6 inches and an overall width of 54.9 inches. Up front, Chrysler has designed a driver's cockpit, filled with convenient features to make the ride more pleasant. For example, round analog instruments with bold black-on-white graphics are tucked beneath an arched cowl and rimmed with chrome bezels.

The uplevel 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan LXi comes with eight-way power-adjustable seats, replacing the manually adjustable seats in the LX. LXi also gets a reclining passenger seat. Split (60/40) folding seatbacks allow access into the trunk, handy when carrying long items. An optional Leather Group decks out the LXi in leather upholstery and adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls and a premium sound system.

Exterior Features
All three 2004 Chrysler Sebring vehicles have unique exterior designs. The sedan has a front nose that focuses attention on the Chrysler badge and on Chrysler's signature oval intake port. Polycarbonate-lensed headlamps wrap around the front corners, while round fog lamps (on the LXi) flank the grille.

When customers choose their trim level, they are also making a conscious decision about their vehicle's performance. The entry-level 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan LX comes equipped with a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine that delivers 150 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 167 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. For those who need more kick in their life, the LXi offers a 2.7-liter V6 that churns out 200 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 190 lb-ft of torque at 4850 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission with optional manual-shift capability (LXi) does the shifting.

Rack-and-pinion steering gives the 2004 Chrysler Sebring sedan crisp, neutral handling. The suspension is fully independent, with a short and long A-arm arrangement up front and a multi-link setup in the rear. LX and LXi share most suspension components, but the LXi gets a rear anti-roll bar for reduced understeer.

Safety and Security
Standard safety equipment on the 2004 Chrysler Sebring sedan includes dual front airbags, three-point front seatbelts with adjustable anchors and the rear seat child seat anchor system (LATCH). Antilock brakes and curtain side airbags are optional.
