Default Dodge Intrepid.... Im confused....?

Ok so my neighbor has a 3.2 dodge intrepid. He said it was overheating. I pop the hood and I am like uh? I didnt know intrepids were RWD...? He tells me its not. The motor sits conventially, crank runs front to back. How the hell can this car be FWD if the motor is not sideways.....

there are some vehicles like that. I think it has something like a transfer case on the rear of the transmission that points the driveshaft to the front axle

Intresting fact: the largest production engine in the US, the Cadillac 500 was for FWD use!
