Auburn Hills, Mich., Sep 1, 2007 - The Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to command attention around the world. Recognizing its success in the global marketplace, competitors have worked to copy the PT’s unique combination of “too-cool-to-categorize” heritage styling, versatile interior packaging and proven quality, but the 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser demonstrates that its success can be imitated but never quite duplicated.

2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser Limited

Chrysler LLC changed the landscape of the automotive market when it introduced the segment-busting Chrysler PT Cruiser in 2000 as a 2001 model-year vehicle. Its one-of-a-kind exterior styling and Swiss Army knife-like interior flexibility, offered at a compact car price, redefined the small-car segment and became an instant hit with consumers.

The PT Cruiser’s success has been phenomenal. With more than 1.15 million Chrysler PT Cruiser sales worldwide and counting, it’s evident that the Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to lead the segment in style, versatility, quality and performance. For years, leading consumer magazines have recommended the PT Cruiser for its consistently high levels of quality and refinement.

Chrysler continues to keep this classic fresh and exciting. Since its introduction, Chrysler has delivered 12 variations, including four Dream Cruiser Series vehicles, the PT Turbo, the Flames, Woodie, Chrome Accents, Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible, the refreshed 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, Chrysler Street Cruiser Route 66 and Pacific Coast Highway Street Cruiser editions.

DESIGN
The Chrysler PT Cruiser’s one-of-a-kind styling and flexible interior set it apart in the specialty car segment. Chrysler PT Cruiser is a dramatic alternative to the sea of sameness in the market.

From the front, the PT Cruiser features the face of Chrysler, with a Chrysler winged badge. The Limited model features chrome accents on the grille. Headlamps have a scalloped bottom edge and Touring and Limited models feature round fog lamps.

A body-color spoiler on the liftgate improves aerodynamics. A rear liftgate provides easy access to the PT Cruiser’s flexible interior. With the fold/tumble/removable seats and the available fold-flat front passenger seat and movable rear shelf, the interior can be configured in 160 different ways.

From the driver’s seat, the instrument panel features large gauges, standard compass and temperature display, flush shutoff rotating air vents and a Chrysler signature analog clock. The radio is mounted high in the center stack, and a passenger grab handle on the right side of the instrument panel makes it easier for passengers to get into and out of the vehicle.

The Chrysler PT Cruiser features a center console with a sliding armrest and covered storage space. This console conceals small items and includes a deep storage bin that holds six CDs, a coin holder and two fold-out cup holders for rear-seat occupants. Front cup holders on the Limited model feature bright accents.

An available Chrome Accents Group (which includes chrome bodyside moldings, chrome door lock knobs, front cup holders with bright accents and a chrome exhaust tip) gives buyers the ability to customize their PT Cruiser from the factory, complete with warranty.

ENGINEERING
High-quality, performance and functionality give Chrysler PT Cruiser a huge leg up on the competition. The Chrysler PT Cruiser offers drivers performance, both under the hood, behind the wheel and under the seats. This one-of-a-kind vehicle is available with a turbo charged engine that has 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 the doors, windows, rear floor pan and reverberant cavity area), combined with sound absorption in the 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.

The Chrysler PT Cruiser’s flexible interior can be configured in 160 different ways, giving owners the opportunity to tackle a multitude of tasks with their vehicle. Innovative feature options, such as YES Essentials® stain-resistant, odor-resistant, anti-static seat fabric, standard console flood lamp, standard soft-touch electric liftgate release, standard compass and temperature display and Remote Keyless Entry add to the 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser’s functionality.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

* With global sales totaling more than 1.15 million units, Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to lead the segment in style, versatility, high quality and performance
* Chrysler PT Cruiser’s affordable price makes it an attractive alternative to many compact cars on the road
