Plymouth Breeze

The Breeze was offered with many features and available options, such as a four-speed automatic transmission, anti-lock brakes, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power windows, power door locks, air conditioning, a remote trunk release and a sunroof to name a few. Like the Dodge Stratus, the Breeze was built with the 5-speed manual transmission as part of its base model. The Plymouth Breeze was a mid-sized 4-door sedan that was launched in 1996 as a cohort to the Chrysler Cirrus and the Dodge Stratus, which were both released prior in 1995. Upon introduction, the Breeze came in only one trim level making it rather boring. It was based on the Chrysler JA platform, which was the same as the Cirrus, and the Stratus. This earned them the nickname, Cloud Cars. This did not slow the model down though, as it was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1997. The Breeze was sadly dropped early in the 2000 model year, as part of the phase out of the entire Plymouth brand. Although the Breeze did offer a better tuned suspension, as well as some special order packages it was seen as the low-end model of the Chrysler Cloud Cars. To further this reputation, it did not have a V6 engine option like the others. The Plymouth Breeze used the cab forward design, which was originally introduced by the full-size LH cars in 1993. Though the Breeze was similar in appearance to the Cirrus and the Stratus, there were two individual features that made it stand out. The first was ridged taillights that integrated the reverse and turn signals instead of having a separate strip and the second was an egg-crate grille. As it goes, the Chrysler Sebring sedan would replace all the cloud cars for 2001. The very last Breeze rolled off the Sterling Heights assembly line on January 7, 2000.
