2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser

2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Celebrates 1 Millionth Milestone
 
Auburn Hills, Mich., Fri, Sep 1, 2006 - 

The Chrysler Group changed the landscape of the automotive market when it introduced the segment-busting Chrysler PT Cruiser six years ago. 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.

In 2006, Chrysler celebrates more than 1 million Chrysler PT Cruisers models built and sold around the world. With such record sales numbers, it’s evident that the Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to lead the segment in style, versatility, quality and performance.

High-quality, performance and functionality give Chrysler PT Cruiser a huge leg up on the competition. For years, leading consumer magazines have recommended the PT Cruiser for its consistently high levels of quality and refinement. In 2006, PT Cruiser was “Recommended” by Consumer Reports and was named a “Best Buy” in Consumer Guide’s compact cars category.

Since its introduction in 2000 as a 2001 model-year vehicle, Chrysler has kept the PT Cruiser fresh and exciting with 11 variations, including four Dream Cruiser Series vehicles, the PT Turbo, the Flames, Woodie, Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible and Chrysler Street Cruiser Route 66 editions.

DESIGN

“The Chrysler PT Cruiser’s unique styling continues to make it an icon in the automotive industry,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design, Chrysler Group. “PT Cruiser’s incredibly flexible interior and thoughtful design touches have set it apart in the crowded specialty car segment, and have kept it there for the last six years.”

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, chrome accents on the grille, headlamps that have a scalloped bottom edge and 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 flip/fold/tumble 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, 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, an available battery-fed power outlet for cell-phone charging, a coin holder and two fold-out cup holders for rear-seat occupants. Front cup holders on the Limited and GT models get bright accents.

An available Chrome Accents Group (which includes 16-inch chrome-clad wheels with nine-spoke design, chrome fuel door, chrome bodyside moldings, chrome door lock knobs, scuff plates with bright accents and a Chrysler winged badge) gives buyers the ability to customize their PT Cruiser from the factory, complete with warranty.


ENGINEERING

“Others may try to imitate, but there is still nothing on the road that matches Chrysler PT Cruiser’s style, performance or interior flexibility,” said Larry Lyons, Vice President — Front-wheel-drive Product Team. “With three engine options, including two available turbo engines, a smooth, quiet ride and comfortable and flexible interior, PT Cruiser leads the pack. And 1 million sales prove it.”

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 three engine options, including two turbo engines (180 hp and 230 hp) that blow away the competition.

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 new feature options, including Yes Essentials® seat fabric, a standard console flood lamp, a standard soft-touch electric liftgate and remote keyless entry make PT Cruiser even more functional for 2007.
