2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Celebrates 1 Millionth Milestone

Auburn Hills, Mich. August 31, 2006 - The Chrysler Group changed the landscape of the automotive market when it introduced the segment-busting Chrysler PT Cruiser six years ago. Its one-of-a-kind exterior styling and Swiss Army knife-like interior flexibility, offered at a compact car price, redefined the small-car segment and became an instant hit with consumers.

In 2006, Chrysler celebrates more than 1 million Chrysler PT Cruisers models built and sold around the world. With such record sales numbers, it’s evident that the Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to lead the segment in style, versatility, quality and performance.

High-quality, performance and functionality give Chrysler PT Cruiser a huge leg up on the competition. For years, leading consumer magazines have recommended the PT Cruiser for its consistently high levels of quality and refinement. In 2006, PT Cruiser was “Recommended” by Consumer Reports and was named a “Best Buy” in Consumer Guide’s compact cars category.

Since its introduction in 2000 as a 2001 model-year vehicle, Chrysler has kept the PT Cruiser fresh and exciting with 11 variations, including four Dream Cruiser Series vehicles, the PT Turbo, the Flames, Woodie, Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible and Chrysler Street Cruiser Route 66 editions.
