Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Intrepid.

Part of a triumvirate of models with a sleek, bullet-like design, the 2004 Dodge Intrepid is a full-size sedan known for its passenger room, silky-smooth ride and sharp handling ability. The Chrysler Concorde and 300M are the other models that share a similar platform with this Dodge mainstay, but the Intrepid distinguishes itself with its unique styling.

Redesignated midyear as a 2004 model, the new Dodge Intrepid is out early for enthusiasts of this hard-working sedan. Spreading three capable engines across the line, the most powerful of which easily gets the Intrepid up to speed, the goal of customer satisfaction is clearly in mind. The Intrepid combines this variety of choice with generous appointments and an affordable price tag as well.

Available Models
The 2004 Dodge Intrepid is offered in three model trims: SE, ES and SXT. Last year's R/T model trim is discontinued.

Interior Features
The four-door 2004 Dodge Intrepid is a full-size sedan in every sense of the word. It offers seating for up to six adult passengers, if need be, and provides owners with 18.4 cubic feet of cargo volume and a 60/40 split folding rear seat to work with.

All of Intrepid's climate control buttons are within easy reach and placed clearly in view. They control the outlets in the front and rear, and the air conditioning with the available automatic temperature control included with ES.

While the entry-level SE model takes care of the necessities, ES and SXT trims add such standards as cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-way power driver seat and an AM/FM/CD player. Options include a power sunroof and an Infiniti AM/FM cassette player with in-dash 6-disc CD changer (ES, SXT).

Exterior Features
The Dodge Intrepid has a distinct, lowered body that remains sleek and agile-looking for 2004. Designed to reduce wind drag, Intrepid's design gives driver and passenger alike a wide, expansive view of the road.

The three-engine lineup with the 2004 Dodge Intrepid proceeds as follows. SE models receive a 2.7-liter V6 model with ratings of 200 horsepower 190 lb-ft of torque. The next engine, in ES models, is a 3.5-liter V6 with 234 horsepower and 241 lb-ft of torque. The fastest of them all is the top-line SXT (as it should be). It has a 3.5-liter V6 as well, but with specs of 250 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.

All engines are mated to an adaptive 4-speed automatic transmission. 4-wheel independent touring suspension is derived from the Intrepid's Winston Cup cousins, and comes standard on ES and SXT models.

Safety and Security
The 2004 Dodge Intrepid has dual front airbags, the LATCH child seat tether system and front height-adjustable shoulder/lap belts. Antilock brakes and front side airbags are standard.
