As mentioned before, the 1998 Dodge Intrepid has a relatively large interior compared to most of its contemporaries. It offers headroom aplenty up front, but the sloping roofline of the car causes the headroom to reduce to just about average at the rear. Tall passengers in the back find themselves almost touching the roofline of the car.
The 1998 Dodge Intrepid shows a complete redesign from the ground up. All-aluminum dual-overhead-cam engines also start new. The car looks even sleeker than its previous generation, giving it the look of an ultra-stylish sport sedan. The sedan has Dodge’s trademark crosshair grille up front, along with two large and sparkling headlights.
A sporty mid-size sedan that seats five passengers comfortably, the 1998 Dodge Intrepid is offered in two well-equipped trims. The base trim is powered by a 2.7L V6 engine which produces 200 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque. The ES version uses a 3.2L V6 engine which develops 225 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque. Both trims use a four-speed automatic transmission to control the action. The Intrepid is fuel-efficient, earning a 30 mpg highway fuel economy rating on the base trim, and 29 mpg for the ES.
