2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser Continues to Shine in 2009

All-new limited-edition 2009 Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 5 adds individuality and uniqueness

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 SÚV with the efficiency of a small car.

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

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.


2009 Chrysler PT CruiserThe 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 may be configured 160 different ways.

From the driver's seat, the instrument panel features large gauges, standard compass and temperature displays, flush shutoff rotating air vents and a signature Chrysler 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 easy for passengers to get in 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 on PT Cruiser Touring includes chrome bodyside moldings, chrome door lock knobs, front cup holders with bright accents and a chrome exhaust tip, giving buyers the ability to customize their PT Cruiser from the factory, complete with warranty.

The new 2009 PT Dream Cruiser Series 5 features new detailed design elements. A contrasting two-tone theme with a Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl painted roof and hoop spoiler distinguish this PT Cruiser. All-new cross-hatched, upper and lower solid billet aluminum grilles are individually milled and machined for a true sense of customization. New 17-inch SRT Design wheels provide an athletic stance while filling up Chrysler PT Cruiser's uniquely styled large fenders. Chromed body-side trim moldings provide subtle highlights, and the new boldly designed 'PT' front-passenger and driver's-side door badges hammer home PT's individuality, reliability and street cruising credibility.


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.

The Chrysler PT Cruiser's flexible interior may be configured 160 different ways, giving owners the opportunity to tackle a multitude of tasks with their vehicle. Innovative feature options, such as the liftgate's rear shelf panel can hold the perfect tailgate buffet. With the available fold-flat front-passenger seat, PT Cruiser can quickly extend loading capacity or become a great flat desk area. Rear fold-and-tumble split-folding 65/35 bench seats make loading larger cargo through the rear liftgate a breeze. With Stain Repel Seat Fabric, PT Cruiser's seats endure whatever life throws at it.
