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.
