The Plymouth Prowler is one of the oddest vehicles that we have ever seen. It started off as the concept in 1993 and was eventually put into production and from 1997 to 2001 as the Plymouth, then from 2001 to 2002 as the Chrysler.

A total of 11,700 units were built, all featuring the front-engined, RWD, the rear-transmission layout. Engineers wanted the Prowler to resemble old-fashioned hot rods, and the drivetrain really ruined any notion of the vehicle’s sportiness.

Prowlers originally came with a 3.5-liter V6 with 214 hp and a four-speed automatic transmission. Later cars were given an all-aluminum V6 with 253 hp, but it was still hampered by that awful automatic transmission.

Motorweek reviewed the Prowler back in 1997, thanks to tape converters we can now remember how odd this vehicle really was.

We have seen what the Prowler could have been if it was given the V8 engine, but we still think that this was one of the ugliest car ever built. And you may disagree, but we won’t deny that this vehicle would turn heads, whether that was for a good reason or the bad one.
