Chrysler PT Cruiser
From Chrysler press: 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. And with the addition of the all-new limited-edition PT Dream Cruiser Series 5, Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to excite.
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.
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.
The Chrysler PT Cruiser is available with a turbo-charged engine that produces 180 horsepower [134 kW] and 210 lb.-ft. [285 N•m] of torque.
Reduced road, wind and powertrain noise result in an exceptional, quiet ride inside the Chrysler PT Cruiser’s cabin. An acoustic package, which includes sealants around doors, windows, rear floor pan and cavity area, combined with sound absorption in trim panels, reduces road noise. Sealing around the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system and insulation in the dashboard reduce powertrain noise. The inner belt seals in the door and added foam in the A-pillar reduce wind noise.
