Geneva, Mar 02, 2004 - The Chrysler Group's new product offensive in markets outside North America continues at full pace with the unveiling of a host of models at the 74th Salon International de l'Automobile in Geneva.
Seven models represent the Chrysler brand's international product offerings for 2004, and their joint debut coincides with Chrysler Group's announcement of the arrival of its SRT-badged performance models to international markets.
Two performance versions of the Chrysler Crossfire, produced in Michigan, USA, by the Chrysler Group's SRT (Street and Racing Technology) organisation and badged as SRT-6', have their world premieres in Geneva.
Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6 Coupe and SRT-6 Roadster, along with the standard production version of the Chrysler Crossfire Roadster, are the star attractions on a stand that is packed with other exciting models.
They are joined by the new Chrysler 300C Sedan, which is seen in Europe in production form for the first time, and 300C Touring, which has its production-model world premiere.
The Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio, and the Chrysler Voyager now fitted with DaimlerChrysler's 2.8-litre common-rail turbocharged diesel (CRD) engine and automatic transmission, also make their European show debuts.
Chrysler Group continues to strengthen its position in Europe with innovative vehicles, like those on display in Geneva, that clearly demonstrate the brand's growing quality and technological prowess. These seven vehicles once again demonstrate the Chrysler brand's ability to create exciting new products as it expands its reach further into several different vehicle segments in Europe.
The Geneva show display of Chrysler vehicles represents the brand's most competitive line-up ever in international markets, said Thomas Hausch, Executive Director of International Sales and Marketing, Chrysler Group. These exciting products continue the expansion of our diverse and distinctive portfolio, and are proof of our strong product offensive also in markets outside North America.
Also among the the new models at Geneva, Jeep had the new Rescue concept on-hand for its European debut. Read more about the Rescue here.
