Answer, a few thousand dollars!! The SE is the "entry level" Intrepid whereas the ES is the "luxury" version. The SE has cloth interior, the ES has leather, the SE has no foglights, the ES does, etc.

Of course, both could be had with various options, but as the options grew, it magically turned into as ES...

AH, thanks man, I thought the other way around.. I thought that the ES was the more sporter model and the SE was the luxory one.

SE = base, ES = luxury, SXT = sport, R/T = luxury sport

Yes and no. Depends on where you live really. SXT was the R/T replacement basically. ES's on first gen's were top of the line for Intrepids also.

An R/T is more rare than an SXT, but neither is any where near as numerous as the SEs and ESs. The R/Ts were only available from midyear 2000 to early 2002 and the SXT was available from 2002 through 2004...

Actually the SEs for 2004 come with the fog lights. ( my '04 SE came has ABS,PW,PL, CC,Pwr Seat,CD,tilt,)

for 2004 the SE gets the 2.7 , the ES gets the 3.2

however I have noticed a lot of 2001-2003 ES have only the 2.7.

The SE has always had the 2.7L engine and the ES has the 3.2 standard (2.7L was a rarely found option) until 2002 when it recieved the 3.5L non-HO engine. It's rare to find an ES with the 2.7L engine from any year. Also, to my knowledge the SE was never equipped with fog lamps from factory. I think you have your ES/SE swapped around... ;)

I own a 2004 SE, all '04 are equiped with the fog lamps, I believe the last year of the first gens were all equipp :squarewin ed with that grill, and fogs (check the Daimler Chrysler website for the '04 builds )

I am also certain of finding several ESs with the 2.7 litre engine in the prior years.

Could be a possibility. First gens from 96 and up were equipped with fog lamps if I'm not mistaken. But I've seen plenty of 04 SE's without foglamps.

That is true. You could have ordered an ES, but subtracted the 3.2/3.5 motor for a 500 dollar savings. I think they finally just stopped doing that.

SE's also get better (slightly) gas mileage.

not to belabour the point....on the DC Canada web site, it says that '04 SEs come with fog lights... but come to think of it I have seen some advertised in the newspaper without, always thought that made a mistake.

The options will also vary between Canada and the US. The foglight option may be a Canada only thing like standard day time running lamps etc. There were plenty of '04s on the lots here without fog lamps so it couldn't have been a standard option.

Also, the option did exist for the 2.7L in the ES, but it was a rare option. The 3.2L was standard from the beginning. However, I believe the 2.7L was a typical option for fleet sales of the ES (i.e. rentals etc.)...
