The crowd-pleasing retro looks are the same, but a close inspection of the PT Cruiser GT reveals a few special touches that separate it from the crowd. First, there’s the large spoiler above the hatch, obvious enough at a distance. Bigger alloy wheels and a fat chrome tailpipe are also readily apparent, but there are more subtle changes afoot. Look closer and you’ll see the larger front grille—that’s feeding cold air to a turbocharger, and not an insignificant one at that. Spool it up and the GT will produce 220 horsepower, but more importantly a brawny 245 ft-lbs. of torque. All that twist means the Cruiser moves around with smooth, self-confident authority and a growling exhaust note to match. Effortless passing is just a tap of the throttle away. That shouldn’t be much of a surprise, because few companies have had as much experience or success turbocharging front-wheel drive cars as Chrysler. The PT Cruiser GT is no exception to that rule, bringing the driving experience to match its perky retro vibe.
