2002 Dodge Intrepid Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 18 reviews
Its closest competition is the Ford Taurus, but the Dodge Intrepid has always been more of a full-size sedan due to its deceptively large interior. On the outside and under its hood, it is really more of a sports car, sure to satisfy on the open road.
In 2002, the Dodge Intrepid again changed its engine options. The SE base model came standard with the 2.7-liter, 200-hp V6, but now both the ES and R/T models featured the 3.5-liter V6 engine which rated either at 234-hp (ES) or 242-hp (R/T). Midyear, an SXT trim was introduced and would eventually replace the R/T. It featured the same 3.5 V6 engine. The 3.2-liter engine was dropped. The AutoStick auto/manual transmission was now only available in the R/T performance model, accounting for its higher horsepower rating. The R/T also offered tighter suspension and steering, performance-tuned exhaust, a rear spoiler, and chrome wheels to enhance the aggressive sports car exterior that formed the shell for the expansive family car interior.
Drivers love the way the Intrepid handles. With the 3.5 V6 engine, it is quite the racer, but handles more precisely and nimbly like a much smaller, sportier car. The best thing about the Intrepid is it's definitely fun to drive. Easy to read gauges, lots of leg and headroom, and deep trunk also rate high. Most unhappy owners complain about endless mechanical problems and the poorly-made 2.7 V6 engine that often needs to be rebuilt.
