    Chrysler New Yorker (12th gen) 1983-1988

    Twelfth generation 1983-1988

    1983
    In 1983, the New Yorker name was used on two different models. The M-body car was now the "New Yorker Fifth Avenue," a name which changed to simply "Fifth Avenue" from 1984 to 1989. The other was an all new K-car based New Yorker, which used the front-wheel drive Chrysler E platform, the beginning of the extended K-car years.

    The E-platform New Yorker came with state-of-the-art 1980s technology, including a digital dashboard and Electronic Voice Alert, which spoke notifications such as "A door is ajar"; "Please fasten your seat belts"; "Don't forget your keys" and even said "Thank you" when you fastened your seat belt, closed the door tightly or removed the key from the ignition switch. Also, it ominously said, "Your engine oil pressure is low - prompt service is required" when the oil pressure dropped, especially in curves when the oil level was low. Among other standard features was a Landau vinyl roof, complete with electroluminescent opera lamps. It was the only Chrysler New Yorker generation with an inline-four engine.

    1984
    Restyled wraparound taillights and a revised front grille were among the cosmetic changes for 1984. A 2.2 L I4 turbo engine was now an option. New electronic instrumentation featured digital speedometer and odometer. Pillowed velvet seats replaced deep-nap cloth seats as standard.

    1985
    Standard engine switched from 2.2 L I4 to Mitsubishi-sourced 2.6 L I4. Previously optional power windows were now standard.

    1986
    Chrysler-built 2.5 L I4 replaced 2.6 L I4 as standard engine. Cosmetically, rear deck lid panels, moldings and taillights are redesigned. Interior changes included a new forward console and revised electronic instrumentation.

    1987
    As with other Chrysler models, steering wheel was redesigned. 1987 was the last full model year for the E-platform New Yorker.

    1988
    Although a new twelfth generation New Yorker was introduced for 1988, the eleventh generation continued for one more abbreviated model year as the 1988 New Yorker Turbo. As the model name suggested, the 2.2 L I4 turbo was now the standard and only available engine.

    While previous model year New Yorkers equipped with the optional turbo engine were also commonly referred to as a "New Yorker Turbo" and wore "Turbo" badges, only the 1988 model had it as its official model name.
