The Eagle Vision was a full-size, front-wheel drive sports sedan. It was produced by the Chrysler Corporation, and sold under the Eagle marque from 1993 to 1997 as the replacement to the AMC/Renault-designed Eagle Premier (from which the Vision was derived). It is similar to the first generation Dodge Intrepid, Chrysler Concorde, Chrysler LHS and Chrysler New Yorker. The Vision, Intrepid, Concorde, LHS and New Yorker are collectively designated the LH: Chrysler’s codename for the platform which underpinned them. The Eagle Vision was badged as the Chrysler Vision in Europe. The Vision debuted at the 1992 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It was on Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list for 1994, and along with the other LH sedans was Automobile Magazine Automobile of the Year in 1993.

The appearance is based on the 1987 concept Lamborghini Portofino’s revolutionary design, called “cab forward.” The cab-forward design is characterized by the long, low slung windshield and relatively short overhangs. The wheels are effectively pushed to the corners of the car, creating a much larger passenger cabin than the contemporaries of the time. The aerodynamic shape makes for little wind noise inside this large car. This sleek styling gives the Vision a low drag coefficient (0.31) which was ahead of its time.

Without badges, the Vision could relatively easily pass as a (first generation) Concorde. The main difference between the two are the taillight clusters. With a nod toward the European sedans it was marketed to compete with, the Vision incorporates amber turn signals rather than the Concorde’s red. The Vision also does not have the Concorde’s rear lightbar between the two taillights. The Vision and Concorde share the same headlights but the Vision’s grille is smaller. The Dodge Intrepid, on the other hand, features completely different head and taillights and has no grille at all.

The Vision’s monochromatic design inside and out, which includes the absence of any brand or model badge on the doors (as found on the Concorde) and available aluminum wheels that feature a simple, clean design, was said to lend a European flavor to the car’s overall appearance. The single color design is more pronounced on models that do not feature the two-toned paint scheme (which sported a grey lower break).

The upscale TSi models featured leather-trimmed seats, steering wheels, shift knobs and door inserts. Passenger comfort items include rear seat vents, center rear armrest, 8-way power driver and passenger seats, as well as personal reading lamps. Driving performance with the standard 3.5 L V6 engine on the TSi versions provides plenty of snap off the line, and highway passing power is excellent, while acceleration with the 3.3-liter engine is adequate but somewhat sluggish.[1]
