Lastest years of the Plymouth History

Plymouth models most offered from the year 1970 are Acclaim, Volare, Neon, Laser, and Breeze. They were badge engineered versions of Dodge, Chrysler, or Mitsubishi models. Plymouth had lost much of its identity, as his models went on the overlap of features and prices with other Dodges, Chryslers, and Eagles in the 1990s. In trying to fix this, Chrysler Plymouth  reposition to its traditional place, mark the automaker's entry level. One of the Plymouth stategy in market penetrasion is giving his own sailboat new logo and advertisements that focused solely on value. Because this only narrowed even more product offerings and appeal of Plymouth buyer, so the sales continued to fall.

By giving Plymouth a variant of the highly successful 1993 for new full-size LH platform, Chrysler considered that it would have been called to praise, but decided against it . There was only four vehicles were sold under the name of Plymouth at the end of 1990 such as: the minivans Voyager / Grand Voyager, the Neon compact car, Breeze mid-size sedan, and the Prowler sports car, which was to be the last model unique to Plymouth, despite the Chrysler PT Cruiser was designed as a unique concept to Plymouth before production began as a Chrysler model.

The first model was a hot rod with sporty style the Plymouth Prowler. The PT Cruiser have been the second. Suggesting Chrysler intended a retro styling theme for the Plymouth brand, both models had similar front-end style. Plymouth had no unique models, besides the Prowler not also available in the Dodge or Chrysler lines, at the time of acquisition of Daimler Chrysler.
