2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser 4.0 8
$ 2,816-8,144
July 8, 2009
Vehicle Overview
Trim levels include a base LX, mid-level Touring and top-level Limited. The Cruiser competes against such models as the Chevrolet HHR and Mazda3 hatchback. Chrysler says the retro-styled, front-wheel-drive PT Cruiser blends the elements of a sedan, wagon, SUV and minivan.

New for 2009
Available Uconnect system with Bluetooth technology is new for 2009, and Stain Repel Seat Fabric is also a new option.

The PT Cruiser vaguely resembles a panel truck of the 1930s, overlaid with street-rod styling from the 1950s. Bulging fenders, fender-mounted headlights and taillights, and a tall, wide eggcrate grille give the PT Cruiser its unique look.
  • Rear window wiper/washer
  • Body-colored strip spoiler on liftgate
  • 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheel options

Up to five occupants can fit inside the versatile interior. Outboard passengers have adequate space, but the center rear position is cramped. Standard equipment includes remote keyless entry, power windows and a CD stereo. Uplevel models include leather upholstery, a power driver's seat and heated front seats. The front-passenger seatback folds flat, leaving enough space to haul an 8-foot ladder.
  • Front buckets seats and 65/35-split fold/tumble/removable rear bench seat
  • Optional Uconnect system with Bluetooth technology
  • Optional moonroof

Under the Hood
A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine powers all models, although Limited models use a turbocharged version of the same engine to produce more power and torque.
  • 150-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 165 pounds-feet of torque
  • 180-hp, turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 210 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard five-speed manual
  • Optional four-speed automatic

Antilock brakes are optional on LX and Touring models and standard on Limited PT Cruisers. Other standard features include: dual front airbags, a driver's knee airbag and seat-mounted side airbags.

Available safety features include:
  • Seat-belt pretensioners
  • Security alarm
