    Chrysler New Yorker (13th gen) 1988-1993

    Thirtheenth generation 1988-1993

    1988
    The "new" New Yorker was bigger (see Chrysler C platform) and bore no resemblance to the E-body model it replaced although many underbody and suspension components were carryover. It shared similar upright body styling with the newly introduced Dodge Dynasty. This new version had a V6 engine — a Mitsubishi-sourced 3.0 liter powerplant, and optional anti-lock brakes. Base and Landau trim choices were offered, the latter of which carried a rear-quarter vinyl top. Hidden headlamps, a feature lost when the R-body cars were discontinued, made a return with this redesign.

    All twelfth generation New Yorkers, as well as the 1990-1993 Imperial, were covered by Chrysler's market-leading "Crystal Key Owner Care Program" which included a 5-year/50,000-mile limited warranty and 7-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. A 24-hour toll-free customer service hotline was also provided.

    1989
    1989 marked the 50th anniversary of the "New Yorker" model. Although no special edition or recognition was offered at the time, it turned out to be the most popular New Yorker of the model run with over 100,000 units produced that year.

    1990
    Beginning in 1990, a new stretched-wheelbase version was offered, carrying the additional moniker of Fifth Avenue from the just-departed M-body platform. Short-wheelbase New Yorkers continued with Landau and a new base model called Salon. The Salon was a rebadged Dynasty with exposed headlamps, horizontal taillights, and grille similar to the Dodge. All models carried a new Chrysler-built 3.3 L V6 engine that year. A driver's side air bag was now standard.

    1991
    The Landau model was dropped for 1991, but even Salon models now came with hidden headlights, vertical taillights, and a traditional Chrysler grille. A new 3.8 L V6 engine became an available option.

    1992
    A styling update for 1992 produced a more rounded appearance front and rear. A padded landau roof, similar to one previously featured on the "Landau" model, was now an option on the Salon.

    1993
    Last year's restyle carried into 1993 as did the Salon and Fifth Avenue models.

    Everywhere else they were pretty brilliant, though. It's from the early 90's when everything started to go wrong...
