Handling

Introduction

The automakers Dodge in 189 came up with a replacement to their previous sedan model Dodge 600. This new development, the Dodge Spirit was a five or six passenger sedan and appeared mid-size, its design and shape familiar to the Dodge 600. The assembling of this vehicle, which was but a stretched variation of the Chrysler K platform and a version of Dodge of Chrysler AA platform, took place at two plants. One of the plants being Newark Assembly located in Newark, Delaware while the other station was the Toluca Car Assembly in Toluca, Mexico.

Models & Features

The Dodge Spirit can be seen as bearing resemblance with not one, but three models, sharing with these basic designs. These included Plymouth Acclaim, Chrysler Le Baron sedan and the Chrysler Saratoga which was for export purposes only. Also claimed is that Spirit can also be known as a replacement to hatchback Lancer and smaller vehicle Aries. But despite what these claims suggest one cannot ignore the more apparent resemblance of these models with the 1987 launched Shadow.

The first year saw production and selling of around 60,000 models for Dodge Spirit, the model went on to be successful for its spacious interiors and features which competed with the likes of Honda, Ford etcetera. In the December of 1994 production for this Dodge model ceased and it was marketed only till 1995. Along with the Spirit also came to an end were the models Chrysler Le Baron and Plymouth Acclaim. The “cab forward” Stratus was the one to act as a replacement to the Spirit.

Options & Packages

The interiors were spaciously developed and could easily and comfortably seat 5-6 passengers, the model came with a front split-bench seat. The front suspension was Macpherson Strut and the large trunk was worth mentioning. The rear axle which was a solid beam one and the designing of grille and rear was which gave it a distinct bearing than the other contemporary models. The lamps in the rear were styled uniquely and so was the grille, also making it different and alluring was the availability of the model in a higher performing and sportier R/T version. The shift in its features over the years has been a tremendous journey of expansion and performance enhancement. It can easily be compared to the likes of the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Ford Taurus. Also praiseworthy and to acknowledged is the fact that customers accepted the Dodge Spirit more enthusiastically than the replacement model Stratus.

The 4-wheel antilock disk brake system was added to the 1991 model to improve the safety of the driver and passengers. On a spree of making this a performance oriented and smooth drive model the makers made available in 1992 with the V6 engine a 3-speed automatic transmission. The production year of 1993, saw the Spirit experiencing a major facelift. The colour of the body was included in the new grille with the theme of Dodge Crossbars. Also included were tail lamps of full length. On sale were only two of its trim levels, the ES and Highline. On the complete range of Spirit was to be included as rule the incorporation of an exhaust system of stainless steel. The brand’s new emblem of RAM replaced the previous Chrysler Pentastar.

Technical specifications

The 1995 Dodge Spirit came with some alluring features and performance driven engines. The Spirit and Spirit LE range came with a TBI 4-cylinder 2.5litre base engine. It could deliver up to 100 horsepower. A 3 lire L V6, 141 HP engine was also available as an optional for all models save Spirit ES. This engine was a design of Mitsubishi. The years between 1989 and 1992 had the Spirit come with a 150hp, turbocharged version of 2.5litre engine. A multipoint fuel injected 107 hp powered engine was offered in a flexible fuel Dodge Spirit, these made rounds of the market during the years 1993, 1994 and 1995. The engine was made such to run on fuel, which consisted of about 80% methanol. Spirit’s R/T version was the one with a 2.2 litre DOHC turbo II engine, powerful equipment with its cylinder head engineered by the supreme brand Lotus. The torque produced by this engine was 217 lb-ft and power delivered was a great 224 horsepower.

The features under the hood cannot be discussed completely without an insight to the transmissions engineered for any model. For Dodge Spirit there were utilised several 5-speed manual transmissions, which were present with those naturally aspirated turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. This 1995 model came with a 3-speeed automatic transmission with a 2.5litre I4 SOHC V8 FI engine.

The interiors came equipped with smooth cloth seating, power brakes and driver front airbag, a must safety feature. This 14 inch wheel beauty with rear window defroster required consumption of only regular unleaded fuel. A tilt steering wheel, power steering of course, cruise control and front split bench seat were a few basic features the Spirit came equipped with. To make driving more leisurely was the presence of air conditioners, AM/FM/Cassette Audio system, power exterior mirrors and intermittent windshield wipers for easy cleaning. In 2014 and 2015 Dodge will make astounding comebacks with its Dodge SRT Viper and SRT Hellcat models.

Safety

To comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208, the 1994 model was launched in the United States with a motorised seat belt in the passenger side. This change as was not in lines with the Canadian safety standards or requirements of passive restraints, and thus the model launched in Canadian market retained the use of a manual passenger seat belt. It is because of this only that the 1994-95 Spirit model of Dodge couldn’t be legally imported across the US/Canada border in either direction. The final production year of 1995 led the brand to revising its safety features and engine, as the model saw a 2.5litre engine with revised cylinder head and the anti lock brakes and 4-speed A604 automatic transmission were removed from the options available as options previously. The Dodge Spirit saves these alterations mostly remained its essentials and stuck to the basics and during its 6 year long stint provided many consumers the ride of their lives.
