Car of the Week August 14, 2000

2001 PT Cruiser 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser -- From the same company that invented the Minivan back in 1984, Chrysler introduces the next unclassifiable PT Cruiser. It's a wagon-minivan hybrid that rouses fond styling memories of decades past and mixes it with a contemporary flare. The modern and nostalgic styling appeals to virtually every generation of consumers. It's practical enough to haul a full load, yet stylish enough to personalize. Whether it's lowered, with faux-wood paneling, or simply has roof racks, the PT Cruiser is truly versatile and unique. Just as interesting on the inside as it is outside, it's powered by a peppy 2.4-liter, 150-horsepower four-cylinder engine the pumps out 162 lb-ft of torque and is available with either a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual gearbox.
