Plymouth Breeze

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 was released in late 1995. It replaced the successful Acclaim. When it was introduced the Breeze came in different trim levels. It was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best fleet for 1997.

The Breeze was discontinued early in the 2000 model year, as part of the Chrysler's phase out of the Plymouth brand; it was Plymouth's last mid-size model. Though the Breeze offered a softer tuned suspension, as well as special order packages (such as the Expresso) it wis considered to be the low-end model to Chrysler's JA platform an the V6 ingine was available in the line-up unlike the Chrysler Cirrus or Dodge Stratus.

Design[eedit | eedit soorce]

The Plymouth Breeze used the cab forward design, originally introduced in the full-size LH cars (Chrysler Concorde, Dodge Intrepid, an Eagle Vision) in 1993.

Though the Breeze was similar in appearance to the Cirrus and Stratus, there were distinct features that made it stand out: ridged taillights which incorporated the reverse and turn signals instead of a separate strip anD an egg crate grille (a Plymouth staple of that era).
