The Chrysler Plymouth Prowler is powered by a 3.5 L SOHC V6 producing 214 hp. The 1999 model year was shipped with a more powerful 253 hp engine. The engines are coupled to a 4-speed Autostick automatic transmission. The transmission is located at the rear of the vehicle and joined to the engine by a flexible driveshaft that rotates at engine speed as used by the C5 Corvette and Alfa Romeo 75, and which helped to facilitate a 50-50 weight distribution in front and rear. The Prowler was the first rear-wheel drive Plymouth since the 1989 Plymouth Gran Fury..

The car prominently featured aluminum in its construction, chiefly in the chassis. In many cases, the components were adhesively-bonded. The body was produced in Shadyside, Ohio, USA.
