The Prowler’s is a taut, tight piece, complete with a glass backlight and electric defroster. To lower this manual lid, you first unfasten two windshield-header latches, then pull a lever that releases a pair of locating pins embedded in the trunklid. Next, you flop the backlight forward, then you punch a yellow button that allows the trunk to open. The whole top falls into a flat, neat heap back there. It sounds complex, but the entire process cost us about 35 seconds, and because the top is completely hidden in the trunk, no tonneau is required. Our single complaint: We wish the top had some sort of headliner to hide its ugly steel reinforcing braces. The trunk, by the way, opens front to rear and is about five inches deep—useful only for one, maybe two garment bags laid flat.
Climb into the Prowler’s cockpit and you’ll trip over a heap of familiar corporate pieces. The side-view-mirror controls are from the LH sedan. The interior door handles are out of the Viper, as are the gauge faces. The HVAC controls are from the Neon, and the plastic vent grilles are yanked from the minivan. And both the steering column and the turn-signal stalk are sourced from the Grand Cherokee. (The apparent rollover bars above each seat, you should know, aren’t; they’re nothing more than somewhat uncomfortably hard headrests.)
