The Chrysler Six was given the model name “B-70” to reflect its top speed of 70 mph, which was, at the time, high-end performance. But there was a big difference between the Chrysler Six and other vehicles with similar horsepower: price. The Chrysler Six cost significantly less while still providing leading engineering and luxury features.
The efficient, powerful, high-compression six-cylinder engine was a stroke of innovative genius. Other progressive features included the Chrysler Six’s four-wheel hydraulic brakes, a glazed instrument panel (instead of individual gauges), and wide seats with a large rear compartment. In short, the 1924 Chrysler was an immediate design and engineering icon.
The unique value of the Chrysler Six inspires today’s Chrysler brand vehicles. The powerful, technologically advanced 2012 Chrysler 200 is available to lease at a low price. The 2012 Chrysler 300 Luxury Series was recently recognized for being an affordable family sedan with an interior reminiscent of the most expensive luxury brands. And the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country Limited is feature-packed at a price that competitors can’t match.
