The Peugeot 607 is an executive car produced by the French automaker Peugeot from September 1999 to June 2010.[2]

The 607, along with the smaller 407, were superseded by the 508 in March 2011.

History[edit]

The 607 was launched in October 1999, to replace the discontinued 605. It used its predecessor's chassis but had an all-new, more modern exterior design. The engine range (2.2 and 3.0 petrol, and 2.2 diesel) was completely new.

Equipment levels were high, with all models getting air conditioning, CD player, electric windows, 8 airbags, anti-lock braking system, tire-pressure monitor, and central locking as standard. Available was AMVAR nine-stage electronic damping control.

In France, its home market, it was often chosen for official government use.

Facelift[edit]

The 607 was restyled in November 2004, with the most notable modifications being the new front end and the 2.7 HDi V6 engine, rated at 150 kW (204 PS; 201 bhp), with a new six-speed automatic gearbox, which became also available on the V6 petrol model. The 2.0 and 2.2 diesel engines increased in output and included a 6-speed transmission, like the newly introduced Peugeot 407.

During 2008, the 607 was withdrawn from the United Kingdom.

Peugeot 607 Paladine[edit]

Peugeot 607 Paladine in 2008

The Peugeot 607 Paladine is a special Landaulet version of the 607 which was developed and built in 2000 in cooperation with Heuliez, as a concept car. The engine is the 3.0 V6. It is lengthened by 500 millimetres (20 in) (making it 5.4 m (210 in) long), and the rear part is equipped with a retractable metallic roof similar to the Peugeot 206's or 307's CC.[4] It is a one off design.

The special leather interior was developed in cooperation with Hermès.

The car was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2000. It was used seven years later by then French President Nicolas Sarkozy for his inauguration on May 16, 2007. Meanwhile, the car had been retrofitted with the 2004 restyling of the 607 (updated front end).

Successor[edit]

In November 2009, Philippe Varin from PSA announced that the successor of the Peugeot 607 would not be called the Peugeot 608, but instead the Peugeot 508. The 508 also replaced the smaller Peugeot 407.
