NAIAS Preview: PT Cruiser Couture Edition

The Chrysler PT Cruiser has been around for a decade, so the Americans decided to celebrate it by introducing PT Cruiser Couture Edition. According to Chrysler, the new special edition is supposed to exemplify “the romance of American automotive heritage, styling and versatility that made PT Cruiser an instant hit.”

The Couture Edition features a two tone paint job: “its fenders and high belt-line painted in Bright Silver Metallic, and upper body and roofline that recalls 1930s and 1940s era hot-rod styling in Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl with accent red pinstripe, the 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition delivers a bold look,” says Chrysler.

The exterior also gets chromed body-side moldings, door handles, 16-inch polished aluminum wheels and grille. Chrome also got to the interior, on the instrument panel’s three gauges, rotating air vents and Chrysler signature analog clock.

This is not the first time the Americans from Chrysler decided to launch a PT Cruiser Special collection. The 2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition it’s the 16th variation since PT Cruiser’s introduction, following five Dream Cruiser Series vehicles, PT Turbo, Flames, Woodie, Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible, the refreshed 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, W.P. Chrysler Signature Series, PT Cruiser Classic, PT Street Cruiser Route 66, Pacific Coast Highway and Sunset Boulevard editions.

The new Chrysler PT Cruiser Couture Edition will be priced at $19,995 MSRP, including the $720 destination charge. The car will be available in American showrooms in the first quarter of 2010.
