Concept year 1995
Production year -
Engine 2.0 litre 4 cylinder

The Plymouth Backpack was first displayed at the 1995 Chicago Auto Show.

The vehicle was a proposal for an ultra-compact pickup truck - which was based on a FWD car platform borrowed from the Neon.

The interior of the Plymouth Backpack had room for two occupants. When parked up the drivers seat could offset to one side and the passenger seat folded down to form a table. A small jump seat (which was inaccessible when the drivers seat was in its normal position) provided a second seat. Quite why this feature seemed important to Plymouth's designers is beyond me. Why not just have a small table pull out from the dashboard?

The small cargo area at the rear of the Plymouth Backpack was equipped with a handy bike rack.

Power for the Plymouth Backpack came from a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine which produced 134 horsepower.

The Backpack never made it past the concept car stage of development.
