The Development of the Chrysler K Car
The Chrysler Corporation's K-cars were an automobile platform of
compact-to-midsize cars designed to carry six adults on two bench seats and
were aimed not only to replace Chrysler's nominally compact F-body Aspen
and Volaré, but also to compete with intermediates like the Chevrolet
Malibu and Ford Fairmont. Based on their passenger space, the K-cars were
placed in the same "midsize" category by the United States Environmental
Protection Agency as Chrysler's significantly larger and heavier M-body
The K cars have been categorized as compact for their external size and
small front-wheel drive layout. Technically, the K cars include only the
Dodge Aries, Plymouth Reliant, second generation Chrysler LeBaron, and the
Dodge 400, which used the K platform. The rest of the K-derivatives,
including Chrysler's minivans, were based on the K platform with
adaptations and modifications to suit vehicles of different sizes and
intended usage. These vehicles had modified suspensions and were longer and
heavier than the original K-cars, but all had the same basic architecture:
a solid beam rear axle, independent front suspensions with MacPherson
struts, and front-wheel drive (except for the AWD minivans). Sometimes,
they also shared numerous internal components and trim pieces (e.g., the
Reliant and first-generation Voyager).

yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it

with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car

78 Dodge Diplomat vs Ford Granada Ghia & Olds CutlassTom Kite featured
78 model year. This basic car stayed in production until 1989. Diplomats
were used extensively as Police Cars and Taxi Cabs after 1981 when the
Aspen and St Regis were removed from the Dodge Line Up. It proved to be a
very successful car for Dodge. Diplomats were based off the Dodge Aspen.
They share much in styling. Even the doors of the car were the same.
Diplomats phased out the stylish two door and wagon in the early eighties.

1962 Imperial Lebaron & Imperial Crown Promotional Film
This is a promo featuring the 1962 Imperial Crown and LeBaron. They also
focus on the move from the Imperial factory to the Chrysler factory.
Imperials had been built in their own factory like Cadillac and Lincoln.
Many people this gave the car less prestige.
