Did the Intrepid get discontinued?

I was just wondering... did the Intrepid model get discontinued? I see Stratus on their website www.dodge.com but no Intrepid! Plus on the forums Second Gen goes to 2004 and thats it. Whats the deal?

Apparently you've been living under a rock? The replacement for the Intrepid is the Charger.

The Charger never replaced the Intrepid. the Intrepid was simply discontinued.
Chrysler may want you to believe the Charger is the replacement but all it is is a repackaged 300.
It's rear wheel drive and butt ugly to boot.

And the Intrepid is a repackaged 300M.........so what? The 300C is the replacement for the 300M, and the Charger is the replacement for the Intrepid.

The Intrepid production cancelled sometime in 2004, along with the Concorde and 300
M. The Charger technically didnt replace the Intrepid, as there was a whole year between when the Intrepid production stopped and the Charger production began. You could say the 300 replaced the Concorde/300M as they were made right after the last Concordes and 300Ms left the factory. They could have kept the Intrepid though 2005 as they had no full size sedan, only the Stratus and Magnum.

Well, the 300C, Magnum, & charger are all made in the same factory that the Intrepid used to be built, so really they couldn't have kept producing Intrepids for 05'.

i think your confused.

the LH body was discontinued in 2004 (intrepid, concorde, LHS, 300M)

the LX body replaced it in 2005 (magnum, 300C, charger)

IMHO the 300C never replaced the 300M either.

as I noted, no cab forward, no FWD. totally different cars.

your correct that they are not the same car. that's why we say they replaced the LH's. it was an "All New" design, but it replaces the LH's in the full size sedan slot for chrysler
