The Chrysler Concorde was a large four-door, full-size, front wheel drive sedan produced by Chrysler from 1993 to 2004. It replaced the Chrysler Fifth Avenue on the lineup. One of Chrysler’s 3 original Chrysler LH platform models derived from the American Motors/Renault-designed Eagle Premier, it was related to the Dodge Intrepid, Chrysler LHS, Chrysler New Yorker, and the Eagle Vision. It was on Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list for 1993 and 1994.

The “First Generation” Design was based on the 1987 concept Lamborghini Portofino. The Portofino was heralded as a design triumph,[weasel words][1] setting in motion Chrysler’s decision to produce a production sedan with the Portofino’s revolutionary design, called “cab-forward”. The cab-forward design was characterized by the long, low-slung windshield and relatively short overhangs. The wheels where effectively pushed to the corners of the car, creating a much larger passenger cabin than the contemporaries of the time.

The “Second Generation” Design was introduced in 1996 as the Chrysler LHX Concept Car. This concept had large 20″ wheels, a centrally located instrument cluster and a closed-circuit television system within the windshield pillars replacing conventional rear view mirrors. The wheelbase was expanded to 124 inches (3,100 mm) to allow for rear passenger supplement restraints, rear occupant entertainment center and storage compartment.

The first generation of the Concorde debuted at the 1992 North American International Auto Show in Detroit as a 1993 model. The first generation lasted until 1997; the Concorde was completely redesigned for 1998. The Concorde Limited, which was 4 inches (102 mm) longer than the standard Concorde, debuted in 2002 to replace the nearly identical Chrysler LHS. The Concorde, along with the Intrepid, saw its last year of production in 2004. The Chrysler 300M (which replaced the Eagle Vision in 1999) was also discontinued that year. The Chrysler 300 replaced the Concorde in 2004 as a 2005 model.
