Default PT Question

I've seen a graphic online on a Cruiser that said "2.4L Mini-Hemi"
What exactly does that mean, could you buy a Cruiser with a hemi?

Default Re: PT Question

Let me see if I get this right. First, there's only one engine in all the PT Cruiser's made in the U.S. of A. It's 2.4 liters or 2400 cubic centimeters. In Europe they have a 2.0, 2.4 and a diesel.

What does Hemi mean: Hemi is a pattern of internal-combustion engines in which the container head's ignition compartment is of semi-circular form. The expression, "Hemi engine" is a trade name of Chrysler Corporation, despite the fact that the conception is used by many producers.

The decal/graphic you saw refers to the one made up to show that the PT Cruiser engine is a pint size edition of the larger HEMI's found in the Dodge Charger, Magnum, Chrysler 300 and many other "muscle" cars on the road.
