Visit Chrysler for more information on the Chrysler Crossfire.

Chrysler steps into 2004 armed with a new roadster, instantly placing it in the same company as other manufacturing heavyweights. One of these heavyweights is Mercedes-Benz, Chrysler's parent company and the partner used to develop the brand-new Crossfire. The result is a two-door speedster with a design influence from America and an engineering system honed in Germany.

The 2004 Chrysler Crossfire is assembled in Germany, following the pattern of Mercedes' SLK hardtop convertible. For the new Crossfire, Chrysler also enlisted the help of Karmann, a German automotive manufacturer. Founded in 1901, Karmann is one of the world's leading full-service suppliers to the automotive industry. Stylish, smooth and powerful, the 2004 Chrysler Crossfire is a car roadster enthusiasts should definitely consider.

Available Models
A new model created just 24 months after a concept version of the car was revealed at the 2001 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the 2004 Chrysler Crossfire is offered in just one trim level for now.

Interior Features
The two-seater 2004 Chrysler Crossfire has a bundle of premium amenities on the inside. Some of the standards included are leather upholstery, heated bucket seats, power steering, air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate controls, a telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, an 8-way power driver seat and a 4-way power passenger seat.

The Chrysler Crossfire is designed with people who like to crank up the music in mind. To this end it comes with an Infinity Modulus audio system with an AM/FM/CD player and a 240-watt digital amplifier. There are six speakers, including dual subwoofers, to this setup, which is based on Infinity's Modulus home theater surround sound system. The 2004 Crossfire also features touring gear with three specially designed luggage carriers.

Exterior Features
The new 2004 Chrysler Crossfire is pretty cool looking, to put it mildly. It has a long, lean front hood that flows into a compact, descending cockpit. Big 18-inch alloy wheels are up front, with 19-inchers in the rear. The Crossfire is also equipped with a rear spoiler that moves up and down depending on the road speed.

The performance of the new Chrysler Crossfire is intended to stimulate drivers in the same way its form does designers. Under the hood is a 3.2-liter V6 engine with 215 horsepower at 5700 rpm and 229 lb-ft of torque at 3000 rpm. This engine is mated to an advanced six-speed manual transmission or optional five-speed electronically-controlled adaptive automatic transmission with AutoStick®. Like a number of other top-line roadsters out there, the Crossfire utilizes a rear-wheel drive configuration.

The ride is both fast and smooth, thanks to independent double wishbone front and rear suspension with coil springs and gas-charged shock absorbers. Dual, center-mounted exhaust outlets are both functional and attractive, while a precise steering system makes the Crossfire as nimble as a cat.

Safety and Security
Safety is a top priority of the 2004 Chrysler Crossfire. Antilock 4-wheel disc brakes with brake assist are standard, as are an antiskid/traction control system, a tire-pressure monitor and torso side airbags. Crossfire's Electronic Stability Program integrates single brake application and throttle intervention for yaw control and wheel spin control.
