2008 Chrysler Crossfire Trims

Limited

Avg. Price: $14,683

The 2008 Chrysler Crossfire Limited may be in its last year, but it goes out in style. Built on a double wishbone front and multilink rear suspension, the rear-wheel drive coupe is powered by a 3.2-liter, 18-valve V6. It delivers 215-hp and 229 ft-lbs of torque and is mated to either a 6-speed manual or 5-speep automatic. With the automatic, it hits 0-60 in six seconds. The coupe rides on 18-inch front and 19-inch rear alloy wheels with performance tires. A tire monitor is new this year.

The 2008 Crossfire Limited comes well-equipped, with full power features that include an 8-way power driver's and 4-way power passenger seat. Remote entry, keyless start, cruise control, a garage opener, and retractable rear spoiler are all standard. Also offered are leather trim, faux metal accents, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, dual-zone climate control, heated mirrors, and a compass and temperature display. For entertainment, there is a CD player. For some reason, the 2008 Crossfire Limited has only one cupholder. A navigation system is optional. The trunk holds up to 8 cubic feet, which is pretty spacious for a coupe.

For safety, the 2008 Crossfire provides 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, traction and stability control, and dual front-side and knee airbags with passenger deactivation. Foglights are also standard.

Limited Roadster

Avg. Price: $16,637

The soft-top on the 2008 Chrysler Crossfire Limited Roadster retracts in 22 seconds. It comes with a retractable power rear window that is also heated. Due to the soft top, the trunk space in the Roadster is reduced to 6.5 cubic feet with the top up and 3.6 with the top down. Like the coupe, the Roadster gets a new tire monitor for 2008, which is probably its last year on the road.

A double wishbone front and rear multilink suspension improve handling and lend a sporty feel to this rear-wheel drive convertible coupe. The 3.2-liter V6 delivers 215-hp and comes standard with a 6-speed manual or optional 5-speed automatic. Fuel economy ranges from 15 to 28 depending on city or highway driving. The 2008 Crossfire Limited Roadster features 18-inch front and 19-inch rear alloy wheels with performance tires. Despite its sporty carefree styling, there are plenty of safety features, such as traction and stability control, dual front-side and knee airbags, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, and foglights.

Convenience features mimic those in the coupe. Cruise control, full power features, 8-way and 4-way power front seats, CD player, dual-zone climate control, remote entry, keyless ignition, and heated mirrors are all standard. Intermittent wipers, two front power outlets, tachometer, and temperature and compass display provide added utility. Leather trim dresses up the interior, though critics say the fake plastic metal look is too harsh. A retractable rear spoiler activates at speeds beyond 50 mph. There are few options for the 2008 Crossfire Limited Roadster, but a nice one is a navigation system.
