Design [ edit ]

The design of the Prowler was said to have been inspired after Chrysler engineers were given free rein to create whatever they wanted in a hot rod or sportster type vehicle. One of the most striking design features of the Prowler are the open, Indy racer style front wheels.

The Prowler featured a powertrain lifted from Chrysler’s LH-cars. a 3.5#160;L Chrysler SOHC V6 engine 24v producing 214#160;hp (160#160;kW; 217#160;PS) at 5850 rpm. For the 1999 model year the engine was replaced with a more powerful, aluminum block, 253#160;hp (189#160;kW; 257#160;PS) at 6400 rpm version of the engine. Both engines were coupled to a 4-speed Autostick automatic transmission.

The transmission was located at the rear of the vehicle and joined to the engine by a flexible driveshaft that rotated at engine speed, an arrangement similar to that used by the C5 Corvette. Porsche 944 and Alfa Romeo 75. and helped to facilitate a desirable 50-50 front-rear weight distribution. The Prowler was the first rear-wheel drive (and last) Plymouth since the 1989 Plymouth Gran Fury.

While criticized for featuring a V6 only, Chrysler’s High Output 3.5 had a horsepower rating similar to (or higher than) the company’s Magnum V8s of that era. While not making nearly as much torque as a V8, Prowler’s light weight translated into very impressive performance figures, including off-the-line acceleration.

The car prominently featured aluminum in its construction, chiefly in the chassis. In many cases, the components were adhesively bonded. The body was produced in Shadyside, Ohio. and the car was assembled by hand at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant (CAAP) in Detroit, Michigan .

Production [ edit ]

The Plymouth Prowler was produced for the 1997 and 1999-2001 model years. After the Plymouth marque was discontinued in 2001 the Prowler was sold as a Chrysler Prowler for the 2001 and 2002 model years. However, DaimlerChrysler marketed the Prowler as a Plymouth in Canada for the 2000 model year; the Prowler was the last Plymouth sold in Canada .
