You are in the Chrysler Crossfire
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler Crossfire, Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6, Coupe, Convertible

Remember the 300 HEMI C? It's the Chrysler convertible that was shown at the 2000 Detroit Auto Show. It was thought to be on it's way to production for a while. Then in 2001 it was thought to have been killed during the restructuring plan. However, carandtrucknews.com reports that it may still be produced, around 2005.
However, the Crossfire is also coming, next year. My thinking is: If the 300 HEMI C was cancelled, does the Crossfire fill the gap? If they have the Crossfire, I don't really see why they would need the 300 HEMI C. However, could the 300 HEMI C still be alive, perhaps under the "300N" nameplate?
Also, let this thread be the host for anyone who just wants to comment on the Crossfire, seeing as how an earlier one was deleted.

They are 2 very different cars, IMO. The Crossfire is smaller, V6, fixed roof, probably sportier handling.
The 300 Hemi convertible is more of a big, relaxed cruiser, V8, convertible - a luxury car. I think there is room for both of them.

Want to see a Crossfire ? Go to the Mercedes-Benz dealer and ask to see the SLK line.Chrysler can put these guys on the road whenever they change their markings and lower their standards to remake an outstanding car.Go see the hardtop convertable..,drive a dream,have some fun for a change.

The Crossfire won't cost as much as an SLK.
#6 of 1538 CROSSFIRE PRODUCTION PROMISED

I was amazed that Edmunds didn't think the Crossfire will be produced. I just received my brochure on the Crossfire from Chrysler yesterday. I am told it will be about the size of the Audi TT only wider with 215 hp. Why only 215? That is much less than other vehicles in its category. 215 HP with such large wheels. I hope before the mid-2003 showroom intro they will up the H.P. It needs to be able to run with the Z-4, S2000, Z350 etc. Base prices suggested to be around $30,000.
#7 of 1538 Crossfire Navigation?

Saw Crossfire at auto show in anaheim. On rotating pedestal. Disappointed with retro interior and no DVD navigation. Otherwise I would go for it.
One less buyer.
#8 of 1538 Agree With Collins - Only 215hp?
Jan 27, 2003 (12:02 pm)
Honda Accord with 240hp, Acura CL/S with 260hp, Nissan 350Z with 290hp, Infinity G35 Coupe with 280hp, Mustang GT with 260hp, Mach 1 with 305hp, Chevy Camaro Z28 with 310hp. All in the $30k range. What is Chrysler thinking?
#9 of 1538 Only 215hp? HA A HA A AHAH HA

Is that a joke? Car looks like it should be 300hp. My Buick Regal GS is 240hp. I can't wait to smoke it... Even the 300M has more power....
What is going on? Are they expecting a lighter car to make up for the lack of engine?
Are we going to get a cheap American looking interior? It is a shame for such nice lines on the outside to cheap us on the inside. At least the corvette has power...
I don't get it. For the money I think i'd go with the G35 or Nissan 350Z
Do they even offer a bigger engine option? Supercharger ? Whats the deal Chrysler???
Jan 28, 2003 (9:38 pm)
yes, but the crossfire has CELINE DION.....

I do not know about the power, but in the pictures at Chrysler.com the interior sure does not look cheap. In fact, it is at a much higher level than the Corvette, a car I like very much.
