Chrysler kicked off the annual Woodward Dream Cruise today at Duggan's
Irish Pub with the introduction of a special-edition PT Cruiser. Announced in
conjunction with Detroit's famed Woodward Dream Cruise, the new 2009 Chrysler
PT Dream Cruiser Series 5 will be available this fall as a limited-production
version of the 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser.

"Chrysler PT Dream Cruisers are about individuality and uniqueness, and
for 2009 we modernized our next factory-customized edition," said Larry Lyons,
Vice President - Car and Minivan Product Team, Chrysler LLC. "The new 2009
Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 5 embodies a contemporary theme with a
distinctive two-tone exterior and the use of unique exterior and interior

As the 14th factory-customized Chrysler PT Cruiser, the new 2009 PT Dream
Cruiser Series 5 features new detailed design elements. A contrasting two-tone
theme with a Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl painted roof and hoop spoiler
distinguish this PT Cruiser. All-new cross-hatched, upper and lower solid
billet aluminum grilles are individually milled and machined for a true sense
of customization. New 17-inch SRT Design wheels provide an athletic stance
while filling up Chrysler PT Cruiser's uniquely styled large fenders. Chromed
body-side trim moldings provide subtle highlights, and the new boldly designed
"PT" front-passenger and driver's-side door badges hammer home PT's
individuality, reliability and street cruising credibility.

"Our Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 5 utilizes Brilliant Black Crystal
Pearl to accentuate body lines while enhancing side rails and windows, giving
PT Cruiser a sleek appearance with a visually lower roof," said Joe Dehner,
Vice President - Small, Family and Premium Vehicle Design. "With the addition
of 17-inch SRT Design wheels, bold billet grilles inspired from the DUB
Edition Chrysler 300, chrome accents draped all over our Midnight White Pearl
Coat paint -- the latest Dream Cruiser delivers a new style that accentuates
PT Cruiser's individuality."

The contrasting Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl paint theme continues inside
the vehicle's Pastel Slate Gray interior and surrounds the chromed ring air
vents and gauges on the instrument panel. New Embossed Momentum seat fabric
has a performance feel, detailed look and expressive design via secondary
layered silver accents. A leather-wrapped steering wheel with bright silver
accents provides a great view to the large satin-silver finished gauge cluster
with chromed rings. Premium floor mats and door-entry sill plates add a final
touch to this special-edition Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Chrysler is limiting production of its 14th factory-customized PT Cruiser
to 1,750 units for the 2009 model year. The U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested

Chrysler Brand

Chrysler is the seventh largest brand in the U.S. automotive market. The
brand's succession of innovative products continues to solidify Chrysler's
standing as the leader in design, agile performance and innovative technology
built around a customer's needs, all at an extraordinary value.

Loaded with premium features, including the fuel-saving Multi-displacement
System technology, the 2008 Chrysler 300 continues to stand apart from the
crowd. The dramatic exterior design of the award-winning Chrysler 300, along
with sophisticated interior amenities and technologies, establish a new
large-car formula not easily copied.

The award-winning all-new 2008 Chrysler Town & Country is a "family room
on wheels" with the new Swivel 'n Go(TM) seating and storage system, stowable
table, dual DVD entertainment system and SIRIUS Backseat TV available.

Arriving later this year, the new 2009 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid will give a
unique option to customers who need the cargo and towing capability of a
sport-utility vehicle, but want a more efficient alternative. Chrysler Aspen
Hybrid is more than 25 percent more fuel efficient overall, and up to 40
percent more fuel efficient in the city. Also, for customers seeking fuel
efficiency, the Chrysler Sebring sedan achieves 30 miles per gallon (mpg)
highway fuel economy and has been certified by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's (EPA) SmartWay program, which recognizes the cleanest,
most efficient vehicles sold in the United States.
