  • New Chrysler PT Cruiser model breezes in to kick off the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, USA
  • Twelfth factory-customised limited-edition PT Cruiser celebrates an American road
  • More than 1 million PT Cruisers sold since its introduction

Chrysler kicked off its participation in Detroit's annual Woodward Dream Cruise yesterday, making a splash with the introduction of the new 2007 Chrysler PT Street Cruiser Pacific Coast Highway Edition — a special-edition PT Cruiser dedicated to one of the most picturesque driving routes in the United States, the Pacific Coast Highway. Announced in conjunction with Detroit’s famed Woodward Dream Cruise, the Pacific Coast Highway Edition will be available later this year in America as a limited-production version of the 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser.

“This Chrysler PT Cruiser Street Cruiser Pacific Coast Highway Edition celebrates another great American road, a tradition we started with our PT Dream Cruiser series and continued with last year’s Route 66 Edition,” said David Rooney, Director – Chrysler Marketing and Global Communications. “The Chrysler PT Cruiser is the perfect vehicle for factory customisation because it celebrates the journey, as well as the destination. With more than 1 million PT Cruisers sold since its introduction, hundreds of thousands of PT enthusiasts are enjoying the journey with us.”

The 2007 Chrysler PT Pacific Coast Highway Edition is powered by a 2.4-litre naturally aspirated engine that produces 112 kW and 220 Nm of torque coupled with either a five-speed manual transaxle or a four-speed automatic.

“The Chrysler PT Cruiser gives the car buffs here at the Chrysler Group the opportunity to factory customise a classic,” said Larry Lyons, Vice President – Front-wheel-drive Product Team. “In fact, the Pacific Coast Highway Edition is our 12th version of the segment-busting Chrysler PT Cruiser since it was first introduced in 2000.”

Unique to a PT
Awash in a stunning Ocean Blue paint with many bright accents that complement the glistening Pacific Ocean, this limited-edition PT Cruiser model features unique 17-inch platinum-clad 15-spoke wheels with all-season performance tyres, speed control, a sport-suspension and standard four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with traction control. Brightwork accents include a chrome grille, door handles and body-side moulding, as well as a bright exhaust tip. A unique “Street Cruiser” badge, complete with unique Ocean Blue accents, is featured on the tailgate and complemented by “Pacific Coast Highway” Edition badges. The tailgate also features an Ocean Blue spoiler.

The 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Street Cruiser Pacific Coast Highway Edition’s interior also is a breath of fresh air, featuring a two-tone interior of Slate Grey and Pastel Slate Grey. Medium Slate grey Albi II premium cloth seats with Ocean Blue Alias seat inserts match the vehicle’s exterior and include a six-way power driver seat and driver manual lumbar adjuster. The Pastel Slate Grey door trim has Medium Slate vinyl bolsters. The instrument panel features a Satin Silver cluster bezel with an Ocean Blue overlay and Satin Silver passenger air bag door. The Pacific Coast Highway Edition also offers a leather-wrapped steering wheel and many bright interior accents, including Satin Silver steering wheel spokes, cupholder rings, door lock knobs, automatic shifter bezel and shift ball. A bright Chrysler winged logo accents the front door scuff pads. Standard SIRIUS Satellite Radio keeps the driver connected, even if the road takes them out of commercial radio range. The vehicle’s standard AM/FM radio with single-disc CD player has MP3 play capability, as well as an audio-input jack that can be used to connect portable MP3 players or other auxiliary audio devices.

Based on the 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring model, the Street Cruiser Pacific Coast Highway Edition includes standard power windows with auto-down function on both front windows, 65/35 fold/tumble/removable rear seats, a centre console with sliding armrest and storage, Chrysler Signature analog clock, air conditioning, electronic vehicle information centre, illuminated visor mirrors, courtesy map lamps, rear door speakers, power outlets in the console and rear cargo area, interior assist handles, fold-flat passenger seat, power mirrors and a shelf panel in the cargo area.

About the Pacific Coast Highway
The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most unique highways in America and also one of the longest. Stretching from sunny southern California to the shady forests of the north, the Pacific Coast Highway winds along some of the most spectacular ocean views in the United States. This coastal highway runs through some of America's most influential cities and most scenic landscape, including San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. A traveler could start their journey just north of the Mexican border and drive on maintained highway, much of it right along the coast, north to the Canadian Border. However, the actual Pacific Coast Highway is generally believed to begin as Route 1 at San Juan Capistrano South of Los Angeles and end where Route 1 merges with Highway 101 at Leggett South of Eureka.

About the PT Cruiser
The Chrysler PT Street Cruiser Pacific Coast Highway Edition is the 12th version of the segment-busting Chrysler PT Cruiser since it was first introduced in 2000. The 2007 Chrysler PT Street Cruiser Pacific Coast Highway Edition joins the Flames, Woodie, PT Dream Cruiser Series 1, 2, 3 and 4, PT Turbo and Chrome Accents models, the Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible, the refreshed 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Chrysler PT Street Cruiser Route 66 edition.

About PT Cruiser Production
Chrysler PT Cruiser and Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible vehicles are built at the Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico. Since its launch as a production vehicle in February 2000 through July 2006, some 1,062,827 Chrysler PT Cruiser vehicles have been sold worldwide.
