Not that we’re surprised or anything, but Chrysler’s “all-new limited production model” that we told you about yesterday is nothing more than a factory-customized PT Cruiser. Announced in conjunction with Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise, the PT Dream Cruiser Series 5 will be available this fall with prices starting from $22,700. Production will be limited to 1,750 units for the U.S. market.
So what’s so special about Chrysler’s 14th factory-customized limited-edition PT Cruiser? Well, aside from the contrasting two-tone theme with a Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl painted roof and hoop spoiler, the Dream Cruiser Series 5 also gets cross-hatched, solid billet aluminum grilles, 17-inch SRT alloys, chromed body-side trim moldings and new badges. -Continued
The contrasting paint theme continues inside the vehicle’s Pastel Slate Gray interior while there’s also new seat fabrics, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with bright silver accents, satin-silver finished gauge cluster with chromed rings and premium floor mats and door-entry sill plates add a final touch to this special-edition Chrysler PT Cruiser.
The Dream Cruiser Series 5 is available with a choice of two powertrains, a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated engine producing 150 HP and a 180 HP turbo-charged 2.4-liter unit.
