Far as I know, the only car that Chrysler has offered that had 4 wheel steering was the Stealth.
No LH car was ever offered with it.

I was selling cars at a Dodge dealership when the LH cars came out, went to all the new car launches and I don't remember anything about a pivoting rear suspension. They were all up about the independant rear suspension tho. Prior to the LH's almost everything else had a solid rear axle.

I do believe he is talking about general techonolgy, not a specific object that pivots in the rear...

when the Intrepid came out, it was an evolution of technology for dodge. I remember the commercials about the wheels being moved outward for a wider stance, and the cab forward design to give more interior space... I'm sure that this commercial is simply representing the roll of the rear suspension to help cornering... he already mentioned the tire tread being quieter (muffler system comment)... in fact, it could be all about the tires... even though they show an intrepid at the end, everything he talked about had to do with that tire - then he mentioned where you could find one...
