Chrysler Crossfire Models and Crossfire History

Marketed as a signature vehicle for Chrysler, the Crossfire debuted in 2004 as a premium-level two-seat coupe. Developed during the Daimler-Chrysler era, the Crossfire was constructed with a significant quantity of components from the first-generation Mercedes-Benz SLK. In fact, it was said about 80 percent of the Chrysler Crossfire was sourced from the German-branded sports car. Independent vehicle manufacturer Karmann assembled the Crossfire in Germany. The two-door hardtop 2004 Chrysler Crossfire also received power courtesy of Mercedes-Benz.

 

A 3.2-liter V-6 engine provided 215 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque to move the Crossfire. Standard equipped with a six-speed manual, Crossfire owners could also choose a smooth-shifting five-speed automatic gearbox. Plentiful standard equipment was included on Crossfire such as four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, keyless entry and 19-inch aluminum wheels. The Chrysler Crossfire line-up expanded in 2005. A convertible roadster model of the Crossfire gave buyers the option of an open-air riding experience. Also for 2005, a high-performance SRT-6 version of the Chrysler Crossfire delivered improved responsiveness from the premium two-seater.

 

 

Crossfire SRT-6 models were fitted with a supercharged 3.2-liter V-6 that produced 330 horsepower. Equipped only with a five-speed automatic gearbox the 2005 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 could run from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds. Meant to be a niche vehicle, demand for the luxury sports car dropped shortly after its introduction.

 

 

In one instance, the 2005 model year versions of the Chrysler Crossfire were sold at a discounted price on Overstock.com. Selling over 76,000 Crossfire's over five years of production, Chrysler abandoned the car due to fizzling demand and a cooperate separation with Mercedes-Benz.
