At that time it was just a concept, the production of which started only in 1995. Sales of this model were conducted in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Brazil. The Chrysler Cirrus sedan was built on the JA platform, which was used in models such as the Dodge Stratus and Plymouth Breeze (these models were popularly called “Cloud Cars” because they were called meteorological). The wheelbase of the car was 2 743 mm, length - 4 750 mm, width - 1 821 mm, and the height depending on the version ranged from 1 334 mm to 1 382 mm.

Introduced in 1995, the Chrysler Cirrus sedan, as mentioned above, had two trim levels: the standard LX and the top LXi (her options set already included two airbags, anti-lock braking system ABS, electric windows and mirrors, cruise control and climate system -control). Initially, both versions (LX and LXi) were equipped with a six-cylinder 6G73 V6 SOHC engine with a volume of 2.5 liters from Mitsubishi, whose power was 160 hp. In 1996, a four-cylinder EDZ I4 DOHC with a capacity of 2.4 liters produced by Chrysler was offered to Chrysler Cirrus 150 hp. As for the transmission, here used a 4-speed automatic transmission "41TE". The front and rear suspension Chrysler Cirrus consisted of double wishbone. The braking system of the car included ventilated front disc and rear drum brakes.

In 1997, Chrysler Cirrus cars received a new center console with integrated armrest, and the Chrysler 4-cylinder engine began to be offered as standard, and the V6 engine as an option. In 1998, the LX grade was no longer offered by the manufacturer, just like the four-cylinder Chrysler EDZ I4 engine.

In 1999, the Chrysler Cirrus car has undergone some external changes. The list of updates includes such moments as a new grille with a new “winged” company sign, chrome rims. In terms of technical equipment, it is worth noting the appearance of an ignition key with a built-in immobilizer.

In 2000, the four-cylinder engine reappeared in the list of proposed power units, along with which the LX grade appeared again. The LXi package, in turn, used the Vits engine from Mitsubishi, and also the top version was equipped with a stereo cassette tape recorder with eight speakers. In the same year, in the United States, the Chrysler Cirrus was renamed Sebring. However, in Mexico, the car continues to be sold under the name "Cirrus" at the present time.
