Numerous case to dislike the Chrysler PT Cruiser currently, however far better than a million were marketed in the USA throughout the retro-styled little vehicle’s manufacturing run (the NHTSA identified the PT Cruiser as a vehicle, to ensure that’s what we’ll call it). I really did not begin discovering numerous PT Cruisers in junkyards till concerning 10 years back, whereupon the Chrysler area in almost every large self-service lawnbecame choked with row upon row of them While a lot of these
cars and trucks vehicles were normal– if cute-looking– transport home appliances, Chrysler developed some with turbocharged 2.4-liter engines as well as five-speed handbook transmissions. Below is among those uncommon equipments, discovered in a North The golden state self-service lawn last month.
The PT Cruiser was based upon the Neon, suggesting that it was to take any type of high-performance Neon little bits as well as switch them onto its brother or sister. The PT Cruiser GT really did not rather obtain the very same running equipment as the SRT-4 Neon, however it was an authentic manufacturing facility racer.
The heart of the PT Cruiser GT was this turbocharged 2.4-liter engine, ranked at 215 horse power in the 2003-2005 variation. The naturally-aspirated 2.4 that entered into normal PT Cruisers made 150 equines in 2004.
While a Getrag five-speed handbook transmission was conventional devices (a minimum of at the lower-end trim degrees) for just about the last year of the Cruiser’s 2001–2010 American sales run, almost every customer paid what it required to obtain the optional four-speed automated. That really did not occur with this
cars and truck vehicle, which has the five-speed.
The GT additionally improved brakes, larger wheels, a stiffer suspension, a reduced flight elevation, as well as a louder exhaust. What’s not to such as?
Will we miss out on the special-edition PT Cruisers when they’re all gone?
