Plymouth was a brand based in the U.S., produced by Chrysler corporation. The brand first appeared in 1928 and was discontinued in 2001. It was Chrysler Corporation's first entry in the low-priced field, which at the time was already dominated by Chevrolet and Ford. For much of its life, Plymouth was one of the top-selling American brands. From a peak production of 973,000 for the 1973 model year, Plymouth rarely exceeded 200,000 cars per year after 1990. The last new model sold under the Plymouth marque was the second generation Neon for 2000–2001.
