2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 35 reviews
The first generation PT Cruiser is now in its forth year of production, and Chrysler has continued to add new options. There are now eight styles, thanks to the addition of turbo-charged versions of the Touring and Limited trims. Again, Chrysler will offer the unique Dream Cruiser (now Series 3) in limited production.
A special new option package called the Chrome Accent Group is now available on the Limited, which adds a chrome fuel door, exterior chrome accents, and metallic pedals and shift knob.
There are now three engine options for the PT lineup. The Base, Touring, and Limited models are still powered by an unaltered 2.4 liter inline four, which delivers 150 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Both the Touring and Limited trims are now eligible for a power plant upgrade, in the form of turbo-charged 2.4 liter engine, which generates 180 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. A new Limited edition Platinum Series trim will also use this engine.
The two top shelf PT Cruisers, Dream Cruiser and GT, house a more powerful version of the 2.4 liter four cylinder. This engine provides 220 horsepower and 245 pound-feet of torque, sending the PT from 0 to 60 in just 6.7 seconds.
Chrysler has also changed the transmission options for 2004. The Base, GT, and Dream Cruiser automatically get the five-speed Getrag manual transmission. All other models use a four-speed automatic.
