The Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to shine in 2009 with its unique combination of “too-cool-to-categorize” heritage styling, versatile interior packaging and proven quality.
With rising fuel costs attracting consumers to smaller, versatile, more fuel-efficient vehicles, PT Cruiser’s appeal is more than skin deep. With two 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine options, including a turbo-charged model with exhilarating performance, the Chrysler PT Cruiser blends the comfort and convenience of an SUV with the efficiency of a small car.
When Chrysler introduced the PT Cruiser in 2000 as a 2001 model-year vehicle, it forever changed the small-car segment. Its one-of-a-kind exterior styling and Swiss Army knife-like interior flexibility, offered at a compact-car price, became an instant hit with consumers.
Chrysler continues to keep its icon fresh and exciting. Since its introduction, Chrysler has introduced 13 variations, including four Dream Cruiser Series vehicles, PT Turbo, Flames, Woodie, Chrome Accents, Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible, the refreshed 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, W.P. Chrysler Signature Series, Chrysler Street Cruiser Route 66 and Pacific Coast Highway Street Cruiser editions.
