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
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.
