The 2001 Dodge Intrepid classifies as a family sedan that delivers on everything important to this segment of the market. The interior feels very roomy and spacious thanks to the Intrepid’s large frame. The exterior design looks stylish and modern, which appeals to most drivers. The Intrepid is also reliable, safe, and economically priced, making it a solid investment as a primary family vehicle.
The 2001 Dodge Intrepid’s standard amenities are above average, even on the lowest-priced Intrepid SE model. However, upgrading to the more expensive models does not have that substantial of an impact on the features offered as standard equipment. Instead, model selection focuses more on engine options. This purchasing setup works in favor of drivers who are looking for power options. However, it might come as a bit of a surprise to potential buyers who usually expect higher-end models to come with premium features that provide greater comfort and a feeling of luxury.

Measuring in at 203.7 inches in length, the 2001 Dodge Intrepid classifies as a large sedan. The styling looks graceful and curved. The Intrepid marks a very sporty looking sedan, right down to the optional rear spoiler, which works much better on this vehicle than on many others. Steel wheels come standard, but otherwise models include no major exterior features. Dodge offers a wide paint selection compared to many other vehicles.
The Dodge Intrepid has a very spacious interior, especially considering its sedan classification. The Intrepid offers a good array of standard interior amenities. Power locks, power mirrors, power windows, cruise control, a front console, steering wheel controls, air-conditioning, and an AM/FM radio comprise standard equipment on all models. However, unlike some vehicles, the higher-priced models do not necessarily add to the interior selection. A CD player and leather trim accessories become standard equipment, but otherwise, the interior remains fairly consistent between the different models.
