1979 to 1980

Gasoline : 3.7-5.9 liters
One year after the sister models Dodge St. Regis and Chrysler Newport and New Yorker appeared the Plymouth version of Chrysler's new (and last) full-size generation again under the name Gran Fury. The vehicle was a variant of the Chrysler R-Cars .
Although the new Gran Fury was a few inches shorter and narrower and several hundred kilograms lighter compared to the predecessor, he sold extremely badly, as in the wake of the so-called Second Oil Crisis of 1979, consumption-consuming cars in the US temporarily went out of fashion. from 1980 was available in two versions, Base and the Salon.,with chrome body trim, and wheel covers.
Under the bonnet, either a 3.7-liter straight-six, a 5.2-liter V8 or a 5.9-liter V8 (only in the 1980 model year) did their job, each paired with the TorqueFlite three-speed automatic transmission.
With the end of the model year 1981, the Gran Fury, like the other Group models on the R platform, fell from the program and was replaced by a smaller model of the same name.
The R-Gran Fury produced 22,319 in two years.
