The Dodge 400 was launched in 1981 and was sister car to the almost-identical Chrysler LeBaron. It was available as a two-door coupe, two-door convertible or as a four-door sedan. There was a choice of two engines in the 400 – one was a 2.2-liter four-cylinder motor and the other was a 2.6-liter four-cylinder. Both drove the front wheels through a three-speed automatic gearbox. The Dodge 400 model had a very short lifespan, because in 1983 the sedan model was replaced by the Dodge 600, while the coupe and convertible version became part of the Dodge 600 line-up in 1984. Haynes has an extensive range of Dodge repair manuals and online maintenance procedures to suit professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
