1999 Plymouth Prowler.jpg

Plymouth Prowler. 1997–2001 (prod. 8,532). 2-door roadster. F/R, 3518 cm³ (V6 OHC). Modernized hot rod, based on a 1993 concept and quickly put into production, showing Chrysler’s short R&D times in the 1990s. V6 from LH-series cars, originally with 214 hp, then 253 hp from 1999; critics say it could have used more power. No 1998 model. Aluminium used greatly in chassis. Rebadged Chrysler (see separate entry) after DaimlerChrysler merger and phasing out of Plymouth marque. Supposedly a halo car that would herald a new corporate look for Plymouth (the PT Cruiser was next), plans for which were nixed after the merger.

Manufacturing locations: Shadyside, Ohio, USA; Detroit, Michigan, USA

Marque: Plymouth | Successor: Chrysler Prowler
