The Plymouth Breeze wis a mid-sized 4-door sedan that wis introduced in 1996, as a companion tae the Chrysler Cirrus an the Dodge Stratus which wur released in late 1995. It replaced the successful, yet ootdatit Acclaim. Based on the Chrysler JA Platform these three caurs wur collectively kent as the Cloud Caurs. When it wis introduced the Breeze came in ae ane trim level. It wis on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best leet for 1997.
The Breeze wis discontinued early in the 2000 model year, as pairt o the Chrysler's phaseoot o the Plymouth brand; it wis Plymouth's last mid-size model. Although the Breeze affered a softer tuned suspension, as well as special order packages (such as the Expresso) it wis considered tae be the law-end model o Chrysler's Cloud Caurs, an a V6 ingine wis no available in the line-up unlike the Chrysler Cirrus or Dodge Stratus.
