2002 Chrysler Concorde LXI sedan 4dr automatic

Chrysler's mainstream full-size sedan adopts the body of its discontinued LHS near-luxury sedan counterpart and adds a new top-line trim level for 2002. The LHS continues in spirit as the new top-of-the-line Concorde Limited, which added an optional Pro-Am Edition Group at midyear. Concorde shares it’s under skin design with the Dodge Intrepid. It's also the foundation for Chrysler's sporty 300M near-luxury sedan. Concorde has standard seating for five and an optional front bench for six. The base LX has a 200-hp 2.7-liter V6, the LXi a newly available 234-hp 3.5-liter V6, the Limited a 250-hp 3.5. All team with automatic transmission. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard. ABS and traction control are standard on Limited, optional on LXi. ABS is optional on LX. Front side airbags are optional on all. The Limited's new Pro-Am Edition Group includes two-tone leather upholstery, unique interior trim and special golf bag. Concorde's performance and accommodations mirror those of like-equipped Dodge Intrepid.


Each Concorde sedan rides a 113-inch wheelbase and measures 207.7 inches long overall — a fraction longer than the Cadillac Deville and Buick Park Avenue. The Concorde is 74.4 inches wide and stands 55.9 inches tall. Its low nose/high deck profile is similar to that of the Intrepid, but the Concorde has its own look, led by a large, oval-shaped crosshatch grille that sits low to the ground and wraparound headlights.

The Concorde’s rear styling is also different, which features a back window that is smaller than the Intrepid. Styling touches borrowed from the discontinued LHS include body side moldings and a rear fascia with a winged Chrysler emblem. Tires on the LX and LXi are 16-inchers, while 17-inchers are equipped on the Limited.


Front bucket seats are standard in both the base LX sedan and the more costly LXi and Limited models. A 50/50-split front bench is optional, which allows for six-passenger seating instead of the standard five. Steering-wheel stereo controls are included with the optional Infinity sound system.

Like the Intrepid, Chrysler’s Concorde has large doors, a spacious interior and a roomy trunk. Because of its higher roofline, backseat passengers get slightly more headroom in the Concorde, but a narrow rear window makes parking and lane changing a trifle trickier. The Concorde has a larger trunk opening than the Intrepid, but the Chrysler sedan lacks a folding rear seatback. The trunk’s cargo volume is 18.7 cubic feet.


Side-impact airbags for the front seats on all models are optional. Antilock brakes and low-speed traction control are standard on the Limited and optional on the LX and LXi.

Driving Impressions

Even before the LXi engine was enlarged to 3.5 liters and received an additional 12 hp, it delivered spirited acceleration — unlike the 2.7-liter V-6 in the LX that doesn’t quite pack the muscle to propel a car of this size with full force. On upgrades, for instance, the 2.7-liter tended to turn sluggish, and its transmission grew hesitant about changing gears. The new 250-hp Limited should be even more confident when passing and merging.
