Pros

  • Another great idea from the folks at Chrysler. The Prowler is the ultimate in cool.

Cons

  • No manual transmission, and AutoStick is no substitute. The hot rod doesn't quite live up to its looks.

Edmunds' Expert Review

vehicle overview

Chrysler has taken the drawing board directly into the manufacturing plant. The Prowler is simply a concept car that has magically seen the light of day, and though it's not the most impressive car performance-wise, it is a most impressive display of Chrysler's commitment to fun.

Not since the Dodge Viper has Chrysler tried to make a car that has both looks and muscle, and the 1999 Prowler appears to have some of both. A new 3.5-liter SOHC V6 engine powers the Purple Plymouth (which can now be had in Prowler Yellow). The new engine will soon appear under the hoods of some of Chrysler's full-size sedans, but it makes its debut in the Prowler. Capable of 253 horsepower and 255 foot-pounds of torque, Chrysler claims that the new engine decreases 0-60 time by a full second.

With almost one third of its total weight coming from aluminum, the motor should be able to move the Prowler to speed in short order. For 1999, the transmission has also been reworked to provide smoother shifts yet still retain a distinctive kick between gear changes. Still, without a V8, the hot rod looks are just for show.

But what a show. This car is guaranteed to turn heads in traffic. If you're not a celebrity but you want to feel like one, here's the recipe: Buy a Plymouth Prowler. Drop the top. Cruise up and down your local strip. Wave at the gawking crowd.

Just don't try to drag race any muscle cars.

1999 Highlights

A brand-new 3.5-liter engine under the hood creates performance more fitting a hot rod. Also new for '99 is one more color option: Prowler Yellow.

Thumbs Up!
Prowlin,10/20/2007
Attention grabber. Awesome experience. Just a dream machine with incredible power, light weight and quick performance. Hugs the curves, climbs the mountain roads with ease, excellent turning ratio, great on gas, only perfection! Sound system is exceptional & Goodyear flatless tires perform with ease and reliability. Everything a person would expect from a get up and go roadster.
Head Turner!

This is a factory hot rod. It leaks a little when it rains, it squeaks some, and it rides rough.....I love it!
Plymouth Prowler - Nothing quite like it
Ed,08/05/2009
This is a wonderful car that I have been driving for nearly 9 years now. Just turned 100,000 miles this week. Mine has been highly modified. It now has a 5.0L V-6 Super Stroker engine with Bellenger handmade headers. The engine has been blue printed and balanced. Too many mods to mention. It is the most fun I have ever had with a car. Every time I drive it is as exciting as the first time. The car was a typical Daimler/Chrysler product with the poor quality control that has become synonymous with the company. It is such a wonderful car that those of us who love it fix what we can and live with the rest. I can't imagine life without my Prowler.

I've had the Prowler for 11 years and it's still as much fun as any car I've ever owned. It's a hoot.

Should I lease or buy a 1999 Plymouth Prowler?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
