Crossley offers four- and six-cylinder models ranging from the 9.8 HP Quicksilver up to the 20.9 HP Super Six. Most expensive in the Crossley range is the Super Six Enclosed Landaulette, at £895.

The Silver became the "Super Silver" using the "Sports" specification engine. Only 14 of these are thought to have been built.
A real oddball was the Crossley Rear Engined Streamline based on Burney patents of which 25 were made in 1934. One of Burney's ideas was that heavy items should be carried at each end of the car. The engine at the rear accounted for one end and, unlike the original Burney, the radiator and battery compensated at the front. The car used the Silver's 2 litre engine with Wilson preselector gearbox. It also retained Burney's idea of storing the spare wheel inside one of the rear doors which cannot have helped the structure. To assist the streamlining the rear track was 13 inches less than the front. The Motor testers got a maximum of 78mph and could have gone faster except for repair work at the Brooklands track. On the styling they commented "Whether or not the resulting appearance is pleasing to the eye is a matter of individual taste". The price is £750.
The aluminium bodied 2 litre Sports Saloon with new chassis and running gear and modified engine was launched. The engine is based on that from the 15.7 and Silver but features higher compression ratio and modified cylinder head and manifolding. Wilson pre-selector gearboxes is used. The Motor found it "speedy refined and comfortable" capable of 76mph with a 0-60 time of 25 seconds in 3rd gear. An overall mpg of 17.4 was recorded. At £695 it is expensive and only about 20 were made. Apart from the prototype, which was Crossley bodied, all the bodies were made by Ranalah.
The 3 litre Sports Saloon was shown at the 1934 Motor Show priced at Ł795.. This involved fitting the Golden engine into the 2 litre Sports Saloon chassis.

Crossley produced a limited number of this unconventional car: the Burney-designed Streamline Crossley. It has the 1991 -cc 15.7 HP OHV four-cylinder engine of the 2-litre and Silver models, mounted at the rear, and independent suspension all round. All passengers sat within the 8 ft 9 in wheelbase. The car had an ENV self-changing gearbox. Previously, cars of this design had been produced by Streamline Cars Ltd., at Maidenhead, Berkshire, with a variety of engine types and longer wheelbase.
