2007 Chrysler Crossfire

2007 Chrysler Crossfire – An American Sports Car Dream Made Modern in Monochrome

2007 Chrysler Crossfire
For 2007, the Chrysler Crossfire features a unique monochromatic look. A monotone Bright Silver Metallic exterior paint scheme gives the 2007 Chrysler Crossfire a sleek, modern appearance that's as distinct as the car itself.

Also updated for 2007 is a new set of standard safety features that include a front passenger seat Occupant Classification System (OCS), a multi-stage driver front air bag that is designed to deploy at different levels depending on the severity of impact and a passenger front air bag. New standard safety equipment also includes driver and passenger seat belt pretensioners and constant force retractors, as well as knee air bags for both drivers and passengers.

The Chrysler Crossfire has won multiple awards, including a spot on the 2006 Consumer Reports Recommended list, SmartMoney magazine's Best New Car Values (Sports Car Segment) and the 500,000th Ú.S. patent for the Roadster design.

DESIGN

2007 Chrysler Crossfire
Joe Dehner, Director – Design, Chrysler Group: 'The new monochromatic look adds to the already-stunning Chrysler Crossfire design in a completely modern way, cutting a clear line through the other sports car offerings in its segment.'
Low-slung with a sculpted appearance, the Chrysler Crossfire features distinctive lines and dynamic proportions. The Crossfire's rear view is instantly recognizable with a tapered, 'boat tail' appearance that emphasizes the sports car's 19-inch rear wheels. Both Coupe and Roadster versions feature a retractable spoiler designed into the rear of the vehicle that activates when the car reaches 60 mph. The center high-mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) runs the width of the deployable rear spoiler on the Roadster.

To achieve an even more dynamic appearance on the Crossfire Roadster, satin silver painted sport bars appear just behind the driver and passenger seats. They ride in two race-inspired fairings integrated into the top of the tonneau cover, which complete the Roadster's rakish look.
A long hood and fast back give the Chrysler Crossfire a dynamic side view. The car's broad shoulders envelop 19-inch rear wheels, while the front wheels measure 18 inches. The larger rear wheels give the side profile a poised stance.

The Chrysler Crossfire sports a distinctive side view character line that moves precisely and rapidly from front to rear. The character line crosses to a negative formation as it travels from the front through the rear fender, giving credence to the name 'Crossfire.' A central spine runs from the bottom of the front fascia through the grille, hood and into the rear deck and fascia.

Inside the Crossfire's twin cockpit interior, this same center spine shape bisects the center console, shifter and instrument panel. From the driver's seat, the center spine shape appears to continue from the instrument panel through the windshield and onto the hood, inspiring similar design cues in other Chrysler brand vehicles.

The Crossfire Limited's seats are trimmed in leather with Chrysler's signature winged badge embossed into both head restraints. The ignition switch is located on the instrument panel, as opposed to the steering column, while the car's precise, white-on-black gauges feature black bezels and satin silver trim rings. The center console has a metallic finish that flows from the top of the instrument panel through the center of the car to achieve a twin cockpit look. Satin silver accents are featured throughout the interior, including the doors, steering wheel and instrument cluster.

ENGINEERING

Larry Achram, Director – Virtual Engineering and Crossfire: 'New safety features add to the 2007 Chrysler Crossfire's already-long list of proven engineering technology. Together with standard four-wheel, anti-lock disc brakes, an Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and all-speed traction control, new standard safety features such as an Occupant Classification System, a multi-stage driver air bag and knee air bags assure that Crossfire customers are safe and stylish in their vehicles.'

The 2007 Chrysler Crossfire features new standard safety equipment, including a front passenger seat OCS, a multi-stage driver air bag that is designed to deploy at different levels depending on the severity of impact and a passenger front air bag. New standard safety equipment also includes driver and passenger seat belt pretensioners and constant force retractors, as well as knee air bags for both drivers and passengers.

Chrysler Crossfire Coupe, measured dynamically, has a body structure that is twice as stiff as a Porsche Boxster and as stiff as a Porsche 911. This technical achievement allows Crossfire Coupe to demonstrate sedan-like ride comfort without sacrificing the handling characteristics that true sports cars require.

First available for 2005, the Chrysler Crossfire Roadster was developed in parallel with the Coupe from its inception, which enhanced the Roadster's structural rigidity. The Chrysler Crossfire Roadster's proven engineering ensures that drivers will enjoy a tight, solid and quiet ride with exceptional body torsional stiffness of 29.2 Hz. Chrysler Crossfire Roadster offers more torque (229 lb.-ft.) than Porsche Boxster (192 lb.-ft.) and BMW Z4 (214 lb.-ft.).

Únder the hood, a 3.2-liter, 90-degree, 18-valve, single-overhead-cam V-6 engine delivers 215 horsepower (160 kW) and 229 lb.-ft. (310 N•m) of torque at 3,000 rpm to both Coupe and Roadster drivers.

The Chrysler Crossfire is equipped with a standard ESP, which is designed to help drivers maintain control during extreme steering maneuvers and low traction conditions. The Crossfire's ESP senses when the car is starting to spin (oversteer) or plow (understeer) and attempts to correct the vehicle's course by automatically controlling the throttle and applying the brakes at individual wheels. This provides directional stability in turns, even on uneven surfaces.

All-speed traction control also is standard on all Chrysler Crossfire models. This feature senses drive-wheel slip and individually brakes the slipping wheel and/or reduces excess engine power until control is regained. This enhances the Crossfire's mobility and prevents wheel slip when accelerating on slippery surfaces. It also provides a measure of directional stability control and helps keep the car on its intended course.

The Crossfire Coupe and Roadster's standard four-wheel, anti-lock disc brakes with Brake Assist keep the cars straight and retain steering capability while braking on slippery surfaces by preventing wheel lockup.
