The Prowler had a 2-door 2-seater roadster (convertible) with a retro design. At the base of the design was the Chrysler PR platform.

The designers were given complete freedom of action in creating this โ€œhot rod`aโ€. One of the creators was the famous designer Chip Foose. In the first year of release, Prowler was painted in metallic purple. In the future, the color scheme of body colors included 12 colors with specific names that are no less extravagant than the car itself: Yellow Clear Coat, Black Clear Coat, Black Tie Edition, Inca Gold Pearl Coat, Woodward Edition, etc. The 1997 model sports car was equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.518-liter Chrysler EGJ V6 gasoline engine with a SOHC gas distribution system and 4 valves per cylinder.

The power of this power unit reached 214 hp For the 1999 model, the motor was replaced with a more powerful one (253 hp / 6400 rpm, 346 Nm / 3950 rpm). The engines were overhead with a lower camshaft and stood longitudinally in front. The maximum speed of the car reached 210 km / h, and acceleration to 100 km / h took 6 seconds. Consumption of gasoline AI-92, according to the manufacturer, was 9.8 liters per 100 kilometers in the urban cycle. Both engines are aggregated with a 4-speed automatic transmission 42RLE Autostick.

The automatic transmission was located at the rear and connected to the engine through a flexible connection in the same way as was done on the Chevrolet C5 Corvette and Alfa Romeo 75 cars. This allowed us to reduce the axle weight distribution to the 50:50 ratio, which had a positive effect on the model's handling. The Prowler became the first rear-wheel drive Plymouth since 1989, when the Plymouth Gran Fury concept was introduced, which was not developed. The overhead lightweight body panels and aluminum, from which most parts of the chassis were made, have received widespread use in the design of the car.

The front independent suspension was a double wishbone, springs and lateral stabilizer, the rear - continuous beam axle, springs and lateral stabilizer. The brakes are fully disc, front - ventilated. In July 2000, the Prowler Owners Association was established in the United States, with almost 5,000 registered members, indicating that this model is quite popular. Over the years, a total of 11,702 Plymouth Prowler units were produced, and in the last year, 2001, 3,142 units.
