The Turbo is equipped with a Turbocharged version of the 2.4 litre engine in the PT Cruiser, pumping out 215 hp in Turbocharged form. The Chrysler PT Turbo capitalizes on the hot rod character of the Chrysler PT Cruiser. The PT Turbo's High Output engine will more than satisfy the interests of those customers who want more power, but don't want to sacrifice cool styling or day-to-day utility.
A redesigned engine cylinder block assembly, cylinder head assembly and crankshaft add to the Chrysler PT Turbo engine's reliability. Racing-style oil squirting mechanisms also cool the pistons, which allows for higher output. Oil and water cooling for the Turbocharger was optimized from the start of development, adding to the engine's reliability and durability. Proper calibration of the Turbo's wastegate and integrated Turbo/exhaust manifold resulted in quicker boost, while providing better control of the Turbo for reduced emissions and improved driveability. Additionally, special acoustic dampeners on the Turbo's intake system all but eliminate the whine historically associated with some Turbocharged engines.
