This car wasn’t really cheap during its period. The price of this car started from $39,000 and went to $44,225 in the year 2002. If added with other options and features, this price went real high.
This car was equipped with 3.5 liter V6 engine having a bore diameter of 96 mm and a stroke length of 81 mm and having a compression ratio of 9.9. The power developed was 253Hp and used a multi-point fuel injection system.
The EPA rating for fuel economy of this car was 17 miles per gallon in city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway.

The safety rating for this car is not available. What we find is that, this car though is pricey and one will think it has got anti-lock disc brakes but unfortunately it doesn’t has one. As the speed increases shaking also increase. This shaking is constant at low speed. When safety is considered, this car will be at the last position. There are dual airbags at the front but not for the side. Also the passenger side bag can be disabled. The major safety feature which it includes is 3-point belt restraints and the dual bags in LH sedan. No crash test has yet been conducted for this car.

The interior of this car has modern features with look of 1950s. This car is equipped with leather seats. It also has cruise control to provide comfort.
The Prowler has a hot rod appeal. It has got a long and slim hood and dual bumpers extends out from it. It comes with various different colors.
WHAT WE LIKE:
1- This car look of all time. You will really love it for its look.
2- It is finely finished and some of the finishing is done by hand.
3- The amenity it is equipped with is descent and even gives a sound system.
WHAT WE DON’T LIKE:
1- It has got a rough ride and the body keeps on shaking at high speed.
2- The interior is a mix up of retro look and modern look and this makes a bad impact.
3- It has no anti-lock disc brakes and traction system which makes it even worse. Because at such high price we expect this safety feature.
4- Entry and exit in the car is difficult.
5- It does not include an option for V8 and does not include manual transmission system.
6- Price is high and fuel economy is low.
