The Dodge Spirit is a mid-size 5- or 6-passenger sedan introduced in January 1989 as a replacement for the similarly-sized Dodge 600. The Spirit was Dodge's version of the Chrysler AA platform, a stretched variation of the Chrysler K platform. It was assembled in Newark, Delaware and Toluca, Mexico, and shared its basic design with the 1990 to 1994 Chrysler LeBaron sedan, the 1989 to 1995 Plymouth Acclaim, and the export-only 1989 to 1995 Chrysler Saratoga. Some also regard the Spirit as the de facto replacement for the smaller Aries and the hatchback Lancer, though the Shadow, also new for 1989, is closer in size to the Aries and Lancer. 60, 000 Dodge Spirits were sold in its first year, enough that Aries production was stopped mid- season. Spirit production ended on 1994 December 9, and the cab-forward Stratus was introduced as a replacement. The Spirit could seat six with an optional front split- bench seat. It had a large trunk, a simple solid-beam rear axle, and a MacPherson strut front suspension. The Spirit differed from the other A-bodies primarily in the grille and rear lamp styling, and in the exclusive availability of the sportier, higher-performing R/T version.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
