Plymouth (automobile)

Encyclopedia Article


A brand of American car, first introduced by the Chrysler corporation in the 1920s as a low-cost sub-brand that would compete with Chevrolet and Ford, the two-most popular car makers that were dominating the market. Over the decades, Plymouth gained significant popularity, although never successfully matching its rivals.
