The 2000 Neon and Dakota Quad Cab with four doors headline the product line changes for Dodge cars and trucks.

The big news for Dodge is the 2000 Neon, which grows up a bit in all its interior dimensions, including the trunk. Its ride characteristics have been enhanced to make the vehicle quieter. The new Neon has a redesigned MacPherson independent front and rear suspension and extensively re-engineered body structure. The brake system was redesigned for improved pedal feel. A disc/drum system is standard, while a four-wheel disc system including anti-lock brakes, electronic brake proportioning and traction control is available as an option. The Neon features a 2.0-liter single-overhead-cam (SOHC) four-cylinder engine with new air induction and intake manifold systems. Dodge says these changes increase available torque over broader operating speeds. This engine is rated at 132 horsepower (hp) and 130 pound-feet of torque and comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission. A three-speed automatic is optional. It gets a new exterior appearance and a more refined interior. While last year there was a difference between the Dodge and Plymouth models for the first time, that differentiation has been abandoned.

Dodge adds the ES model to the Grand Caravan line. The ES has a 3.8-liter engine with AutoStick standard, giving the driver a choice of automatic or clutchless manual shifting. All 1999 Caravan models feature bolder, freshened front ends. ES and Sport models feature a new honeycomb grille, round fog lamps and body color rear spoiler. In addition to seat-mounted grocery-bag hooks, there is a standard cargo net between the front seats on all models. All models get next-generation driver airbags.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
