Reports indicate the Crossfire will end production in the middle of the year. Having started production some five years ago, the Crossfire was met with a great deal of criticism in Australia, which led to slow sales.
In 2005 Chrysler decided to bring out the SRT-6 version powered by a supercharged six-cylinder engine with 242kW of Power and 420Nm of torque and a 0-100Km/hr time of 6.5 secs. From 2005 onwards, no real changes were made to either the SRT version or the base models. Either way sales did not improve.
For a car sharing its chassis with the rather popular Mercedes Benz SLK coupe, one has to wonder if the Crossfire was priced appropriately. In Australian the Crossfire range started at $69,990 and went up to $91,990 for the SRT-6. If you are after a Crossfire and have put off buying one in the last few years, this is a good time as any. The run out sale of the last few models will surely attract some large discounts.
