Chrysler first presented the Eagle in 1989. It was supposed to be a fresh start for Chrysler as they produced new, affordable cars with an import flavor. Renault and Mitsubishi provided the technology and Chrysler invested their money and effort. The first model was the Eagle Premier, a big four-door sedan with front-wheel drive and luxurious features (via Hemmings).
However, despite the qualities and comfort, the market didn’t respond well to the new brand and model. Chrysler discontinued the Eagle Premier in 1992 and the Eagle brand itself in 1999 as a result.
