Plymouth For 2000
By Carey Russ
The 2000 Plymouth Neon made its debut in the middle of 1999, but has some revisions partway through its first year. The roomy Breeze has more standard equipment. New models of the Voyager minivan are offered, and the Prowler street rod is more comfortable.
The newest Neon not only has been restyled, it's roomier, quieter, more refined, and better-equipped, with no loss of its fun character. Although it was introduced as a 2000 model partway through last year, it has a variety of mid-year refinements, including new interior trim and appointments, modifications to its five-speed transaxle, and new color choices.
The world's only factory street rod gets new color choices and black bumpers this year. What looks vintage shouldn't necessarily feel vintage, so suspension revisions result in a more comfortable ride. There are also enhancements to the interior.
The Plymouth Voyager was the first minivan, back in 1983. Four versions are available for 2000, in both long and short-wheelbase form. Model offerings have been revised. The high-value "T-Plus" package, combining popular options at a low price, is new.
The standard equipment level has been raised in the mid-size Breeze sedan.
