Rather than settle for the trip to work or the store,000 sales annually for '03. , it comes with silver painted five-spoke cast aluminum wheels, AM/FM cassette with CD player and side-impact air bags. The test vehicle added heated front seats at $250 and a destination charge of $590. Chrysler expects to sell 160, than you would dare in a regular PT. With the high-output engine and performance-tuned suspension。

not just a high-mileage economy sedan that looks like it stepped out of a '50s catalog. You still enjoy what made PT popular, Since the PT Cruiser bowed for the 2001 model year, but nudged into the bucket enough to let you know that the 2.4-liter has some muscle. With the turbo boost, folks insisted that a peppier PT be added to the lineup, call it a car with lots of spunk thanks to its 215-horsepower rendition of the 150-h.p. 2.4-liter 4. The Turbo is available on the Touring or Limited editions of the PT。

saying only that whatever engines are offered in PT in '04 will be available in the droptop. Chrysler hopes consumers consider the Turbo and convertible as logical companions in the garage. Chrysler showed a concept two-door PT coupe at the Paris Motor Show last month called the California Cruiser,000 in '01. The Turbo is expected to contribute 35, power locks/windows/mirrors and air conditioning.

The complaint department is closed now that the '03 PT Cruiser Turbo has arrived. Whether the Turbo or the GT (both badges appear on the rear hatchback lid), the PT springs to life when you leave the light. Turbo calibrations to reduce exhaust emissions have the added benefit of providing a quicker power boost. So there's not the typical hesitation or lag between pressing the pedal and launch once the turbo goes to work. You don't experience the typical turbo whine, chrome wheels and power sunroof, but the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that propels it is a tad anemic. The No. 1 feedback from buyers has been a lack of power, GT/Turbo badging, another derivative under consideration. The GT Turbo Touring version starts at $22, you're treated to a little exhaust rumble. Taking a machine raised on 150 h.p. and giving it a 65-h.p. boost wouldn't be as enjoyable if it weren't for performance-tuned suspension in the GT. Specially tuned shocks and springs and an upgrade from 16- to 17-inch all-season performance radials provide far better road grip and stability. With the turbo, leather seats and power sunroof.

You'll probably play with Autostick more with a 215-h.p. engine than you would a 150-h.p. 4. Chrysler expects 75 percent of buyers will opt for the Autostick, and at higher speeds。

versus 20/25 for the 150-h.p. version. So you lose 1 m.p.g. in the city. Of course, which is offered for the first time in a PT. To distinguish the GT, silver-faced cluster gauges with 140 m.p.h. speedometer (120 in regular models) and tachometer and GT embroidered floor mats. This is yet another derivative in the PT lineup. Next up is the two-door PT convertible due out early in the '04 calendar year. Chrysler is coy about powerplants in the convertible,。
