Only minor changes to the front fascia of the Chrysler Concorde appear on the 2004 model year.
Sleek comes to mind when looking at the 2004 Chrysler Concorde. This car has long been known as a spacious and incredibly handsome model and the 2004 edition makes no exception. It features dual oval-shaped headlights set in a tapered front end. The grille looks small with the Chrysler logo predominately placed in the center. The Concorde hides its large size well and looks almost like a sport sedan with its streamlined, sleek, modern lines. Refinement and elegance mark part of the attraction for this sedan. It looks impressive on the road or in front of the country club. The 2004 Concorde comes in several different color choices including Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat, Graphite Metallic Clearcoat, and Stone White Clearcoat.
The inside of the 2004 Concorde looks as refined and comfortable as the outside. In the cabin the 2004 Chrysler Concorde comes equipped with either cloth or leather bucket front seats depending on the trim level. In the higher trim levels the seats offer height adjustment and manually adjustable lumbar support for the driver’s seat. Both the driver’s and the front-passenger’s seat come equipped with a heating system as well. Power door locks and windows provide standard equipment on the all of the trim levels. Climate and cruise control ensure everyone stays comfortable in the Concorde. The leather, tilt-adjustable steering wheel also includes controls for cruise control and the audio system. Leather also plays a role in adding to the cabin on the shift knob. Storage marks an important feature of the cabin as well. Chrysler meets this need with a center console, front door pockets, and pockets behind the front seats. Cup holders seem strategically placed around the cabin as well.
Performance & Handling
The one thing that surprises many test drivers of the 2004 Chrysler Concorde is the car’s smooth ride and comfortable handling. While the base doesn’t offer the power of the larger models, it provides enough power to smoothly merge and pass on the highway. For a large model it proves extremely functional and fun to drive. For both the driver and passenger it offers a pleasant ride and experience every time. The Limited makes the right choice for the demanding driver. This edition contains the tweaked engine and lots of power in addition to a good suspension system and powerful acceleration.
Safety features prove crucial for any vehicle. The Concorde comes equipped with several standard safety features. Some of the most important features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes, dual front side-mounted airbags, and an engine immobilizer. It also comes equipped with traction control, a rear-seat center lap seat belt, and electronic brake force distribution. The correct types of headrests can help protect the head and neck in the event of an accident. The 2004 Chrysler Concorde comes equipped with front height-adjustable headrests. A remote anti-theft alarm system provides standard safety equipment for the 2004 as well.
