Chrysler / Plymouth Prowler
Year to Year Changes
 

1997 Plymouth Prowler:  Only 457 were produced but Prowler would be back for 1999.

1999 Plymouth Prowler:  Reintroduced in spring of 1998 as a '99 model, Prowler had a new V6 engine that produced 253 horsepower--39 more than in 1997. That engine came from the Chrysler 300M and LHS. As before, the sole transmission was a rear-mounted automatic unit with Chrysler's Autostick manual-shift feature. Antilock brakes and traction control remained unavailable. In addition to the original purple body color, the revived Prowler came in yellow, black, or red. Chrome wheels were newly optional, too.

2000 Plymouth Prowler:   Suspension revisions were the major changes this year, along with new body colors. Springs were softened and shock absorbers recalibrated, in an attempt to improve ride and handling. Silver joined the body-color list, replacing yellow and purple. A new chrome bezel and leather boot went on the gearshift, and an automatic-dimming mirror contained an integral compass and trip computer.

2001 Plymouth Prowler:  Adjustable shock absorbers and new colors are the only changes for this limited production model. Production ceased at the end of the year.

2002 Plymouth Prowler:  Inca Gold replaced Mulholland Blue midyear as an option to orange or silver. The last Prowler was put together on February 15, 2002.
