Plymouth For 1998

By Carey Russ

Plymouth's mission in the Chrysler family is to provide stylish and innovative cars at affordable prices. The Voyager minivan and Neon and Breeze sedans are contemporary vehicles in keeping with Plymouth's mission statement. The factory street rod Prowler takes a holiday for the 1998 model year, with the 1999 version planned to be an early release midway through the 1998 calendar year.

All 1998 Plymouths have depowered, "Next-Generation" airbags.


The Breeze is a low-priced midsized sedan for young buyers looking for a combination of styling, comfort, safety, and fun. It's well- equipped, with air conditioning, a tilt steering column, rear window defroster, and full-folding rear seat all standard.

New for 1998 is the "Expresso" style package and more color choices. There are a number of mechanical refinements to make the Breeze smoother and quieter. A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with a 5- speed manual transmission is standard, with a 4-speed automatic optional. The automatic is the only choice with the optional 2.4-liter 4- cylinder engine.


The Neon was a landmark car for Chrysler Corporation when it was introduced in the 1995 model year. It has evolved since then, with ever-increasing refinement. 1998 brings further mechanical enhancements, new color choices, and a special style option group.

Neons are available in sedan or coupe body styles, with several trim levels and special packages. A 132-horsepower 2.0-liter single overhead cam engine is standard, with a 150-horse twincam version optional for energetic performance. Transmission choice is 5-speed manual or 3-speed automatic.


Most people connect "Plymouth" with "minivan", and the Voyager is the reason. It's one of the most popular entry-level minivans. Redesigned completely for 1996, it enters 1998 with mechanical refinements, new paint colors and interior fabrics, and the "Expresso" decor package.
