Historical information about the American automaker Chrysler and background on some of its top models
Chrysler Corporation is an American owned automobile company that has teamed up with Jeep and Dodge in recent years. Though the company struggled through the 60's and 70's, Chrysler is currently the third largest of the United States' domestic manufacturers.
In 2005, Chrysler saw the debut of the new 300 sedan, half a century after the launch of the original. This 300 Hemi C brings back rear-drive and has 340 horse power. The four-door sedan will be followed by both a coupe and convertible in upcoming years. Also redesigned for 2005, the Chrysler PT Cruiser resembles a late-'30s American sedan but has a taller body and gets better gas mileage. In the Cruiser's fifth year, Chrysler added turbochargers, and the option of a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission. The Cruiser is available in convertible and SUV models, both with a standard 150 horsepower engine.
Another important release is the 2005 version of Chrysler's Crossfire. Originally designed by Erik Stoddard, a 25-year-old graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Crossfire was meant to be Chrysler's answer to Porsche Boxter, Audi TT, and Mercedes SLK. The 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 Roadster is very stylish, and comes as a sporty coupe and a convertible. Both versions of the Roadster have a Mercedes-Benz sourced, hand-built, 330-horse powered V-6 engine and a stiffer suspension.
