The Neon SRT-4 Was Both Angry and Got No Respect

/ Comments

It was a decent effort, but just didn't quite make the cut.

Before Dodge (and Chrysler) began its latest spiral towards near death, it built a so-called high-performance version of its Neon. Remember that car? It was called the Neon SRT4, and it only lasted for a few model years. The idea behind it was to offer a serious alternative to the likes of the Honda Prelude and other Japanese pocket rockets of the time. It didn't quite make the cut. But still, the Neon SRT4 did come with a 2.4-liter four pot that produced about 215 horsepower.

Many owners managed to extract more power through various modifications. Available only as a sedan, the SRT4 was, well, not really good enough. It wasn't bad; it just didn't have the quality appeal of its intended Japanese rivals. Still, it managed to attract a semi loyal following.
