Plymouth For 2001

By Carey Russ

The Plymouth brand enters its final year in 2001. The Voyager minivan has moved over to Chrysler, leaving the Neon and Prowler to keep the flame alive.

Prowler
The Prowler remains as the only factory street rod in production, combining outrageous retro-look styling with a contemporary chassis and engine. The optional "Black Tie Edition," featuring a black-over-silver exterior color scheme and silver-tinged interior is new this year. If that's not bright enough, look for Prowler Orange later in the year. Prowler Silver remains as the standard color.

Neon
Completely redesigned last year, the Neon continues with new color choices and option packages.
