Chrysler Introduces 1999 LHS at the North American International Auto Show

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 5 -- The all-new 1999 Chrysler LHS
builds on the brand's rich heritage of design leadership and engineering
excellence, and at the same time represents yet another concept-to-reality
success story for Chrysler .
    The all-new Chrysler LHS emulates the fine craftsmanship of classic
automobiles of the past while offering a blend of performance and agile
handling that is certain to attract a new generation of buyer, said Robert J.
Eaton, Chairman, Chrysler Corporation.
    The 1999 Chrysler LHS is designed for those who want an American
automobile that makes a statement with its sophisticated styling, yet has the
handling characteristics of a touring sedan.  LHS offers its owners a spacious
interior filled with premium features.
    The 1999 Chrysler LHS offers buyers the highest level of luxury with a
design that is even more graceful and elegant than the previous LHS, said
Martin R. Levine, General Manager, Chrysler/Plymouth/Jeep(R) Division.  It
also builds on Chrysler's heritage of innovative engineering by offering even
better overall performance and handling.
    Equipped with a new, all-aluminum high-output 3.5-liter engine and touring
suspension, the 1999 Chrysler LHS offers both increased performance and fuel
efficiency.  An impressive list of standard features include world-class quad
projector headlamps for a unique look both day and night, leather trimmed
seats with four-way multi-adjustable front headrests, a trunk pass-through in
the rear seat, and unique electroluminescent analog gauges.
    The original Chrysler LHS, introduced for the 1994 model year, played an
instrumental role in redefining the Chrysler brand and providing a premium
entry in the full-size sedan segment.  The 1999 Chrysler LHS accelerates this
momentum with its stunning yet elegant design both inside and out, first
explored on the 1996 Chrysler LHX concept car.
    Just as the Chrysler Sebring Coupe, Sebring Convertible and Town & Country
minivan have done, the 1999 Chrysler LHS achieves the best blend of providing
performance, comfort and advanced engineering all in a distinctive exterior
    Combine the Chrysler brand vehicle line-up and you will see we offer a
premium entry in almost every segment, including convertibles, minivans and
sedans, said Levine.  With each new product, we've been able to expand the
appeal of the Chrysler brand to a new buyer who is younger and more affluent.
The all-new Chrysler LHS continues that trend by adding even more appeal.
