Looking over these Showcar pics has me puzzling about the future Intrepid/Concorde. So far the new 300C is a replacement for the 300M. The Magnum is a new addition. A Magnum sedan would have been a no brainer for a replacement for the Intrepid had it's concept the Super HEMI 8 not been a complete disaster. Since the base 300 is to have the 2.7L engine it could be argued that this is the Concorde replacement.
I have read a suggestion that the Chrysler Airflite is intended to be a concorde replacement. It is based on a shortened LX platform and is V6 powered and but is a 5 door hatchback. If DCX follows their platform sharing practice it could be that the Intrepid replacement is hiding in plain view as the un-Charger like Avenger Concept. Comparing the Airflite and the Avenger: their dimensions are within inches of each other, 3.5L V-6 power, 5 door hatchback, the fuel filler cap is located in the same odd location. Differences being the Avenger's increased ride height, all-wheel drive and distinctly different body styling.
There may not be one direct replacement for both the Intrepid & Concorde. But, each could have there places filled by more than one car. We can still be suprised by a Charger concept inspired Intrepid replacement. AMENDED: The JEEP Varsity concept also shares many similarities with the Avenger/Airflite.
