2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 37 reviews
The PT Cruiser entered its second year of production in 2002, following a year of reviewer praise and great consumer curiosity. Chrysler could not build enough PTs in 2001 to satisfy the demand, but both production and variety were increased for 2002.
The 2001 PT Cruiser was offered only in Base and Limited Trims, but two new variants are now available. The Touring finish, which was previously an option package, is now a trim level. Chrysler has also added the Dream Cruiser Series. New special appearance packages for the PT also have a retro focus: wood-paneled sides or flame decals are now available.
The PT's unique body style is certainly head-turning, but it is also functional. Seating arrangements are highly configurable, and the extra height allows for greater cargo capacity than other compact cars. The PT offers 19 cubic feet for luggage alone.
Once again, there is only one engine choice. All models are powered by a 2.4 liter DOHC inline four, which provides 150 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Buyers may select a four-speed automatic or five-manual manual transmission, and both route power to the wagon's front wheels.
