AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE NAMES CHRYSLER TRIO AUTOMOBILE OF THE YEAR

 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 24 ~PRNewswire~ -- Saying "Uncle Sam needed a home run, and he got one," AUTOMOBILE Magazine today named Chrysler Corporation's (NYSE: C) new Eagle Vision, Dodge Intrepid and Chrysler Concorde -- the company's LH midsize sedans -- Automobile of the Year.
 David E. Davis Jr., editorial director and selector of the best new automobile offered in the United States (by all manufacturers regardless of country of origin), called the Chrysler sedans "'America the Beautiful' on Wheels."
 "These are great American cars, and that statement is not meant to imply that they're only great when compared with other American cars, either," Davis said. "These are American cars that can hold their own in any company on my kind of road."
 Past winners meeting this criterion have included the Mazda Miata, Cadillac Seville STS and Acura NSX.
 The Automobile of the Year highlights the annual "AUTOMOBILE All-Stars" January 1993 issue, which will be out in early December. Details on the All-Stars, Design of the Year and the Automobile Man of the Year will be announced next week.
 Davis today presented the award to Chrysler Vice Chairman Bob Eaton, Chrysler President Bob Lutz and members of the "LH Team," the nearly 800 who were responsible for developing the cars.
 Looking at particulars, Davis said, "The three innovative new products that we celebrate here will be recognized first for their dramatic cab-forward body design. But function follows form, in this case, and the real magic is in the details.
 "The Dodge Intrepid, Eagle Vision and Chrysler Concorde are roomy and comfortable in the manner of American land yachts of yore, but they ride, handle and hold the road like the best of the contemporary imports.
 "All are barn burners -- handsome, roomy, comfortable, fast and safe."
 Founded in 1985, AUTOMOBILE Magazine has been the fastest-growing automotive-enthusiast publication in history, having achieved circulation in excess of 500,000 within its first five years. Acclaimed by AdWeek as one of the nation's 10 hottest publications during 1991, AUTOMOBILE Magazine is published by the K-III Magazine Corporation, which also produces Premiere, New York, Seventeen and New Woman.
