The Plymouth Breeze was a mid-sized 4-door sedan that was introduced in 1996, as a companion to the Chrysler Cirrus an the Dodge Stratus which were released in late 1995. It replaced the successful Acclaim.When it wis introduced the Breeze came in different trim levels. It was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best leet for 1997.
The Breeze wis discontinued early in the 2000 model year, as pairt of the Chrysler's phaseout of the Plymouth brand; it was 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 was considered to be the low-end model of Chrysler's JA platform and the V6 ingine was not available in the line-up unlike the Chrysler Cirrus or Dodge Stratus.
