Power Rangers Turbo (often abbreviated as PRT) is a television show based on the Japanese Super Sentai television series Gekisou Sentai Carranger (translated as Racing Squadron Carranger) featuring the fifth generation of the Power Rangers.
The series is the followup to Power Rangers Zeo and the continuation of the storyline begun in the film, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, in which the former Zeo Rangers Tommy (Zeo Ranger V - Red), Adam (Zeo Ranger IV - Green), Tanya (Zeo Ranger II - Yellow), and Kat (Zeo Ranger I - Pink) are joined by Justin, the twelve-year-old new Blue Ranger (who replaces an injured and retired Rocky (Zeo Ranger III - Blue) at the start of the series), in the quest to stop Divatox, a barbaric but beautiful space pirate, from unleashing the evil of her demonic fiancé, Maligore, upon the universe. The power of the Zeo Crystal and the Zeo Zords are not strong enough to withstand this new evil, so Zordon and Alpha 5 assist the Rangers in creating the new Turbo Powers, which also give the Rangers new Turbo Zords. The show takes place after the movie.
After the defeat of Maligore, the Turbo Rangers Tommy, Kat, Adam, Tanya, and Justin resume their normal lives but are attacked once again by a vengeful Divatox, who has an endless supply of detonators and monsters to threaten the citizens of Angel Grove. When Zordon and Alpha 5 leave the Power Chamber to return to Zordon's home planet of Eltar, the mentorship of the Rangers falls to the spectral Dimitria of Inquiris and the street-talking and conceited Alpha 6. The Rangers are then joined by Blue Senturion, an intergalactic police robot who brings with him the "Millennium Message", which foretells events that are yet to come.
When Divatox's mother Mama D suggests that Tommy be destroyed in order to defeat all the Rangers at once, they are rescued by four new friends: T.J., Carlos, Ashley, and Cassie. They are chosen to become the new Power Rangers as the veterans retire, while Justin remains at their side as the Blue Turbo Ranger. The plot thickens with the arrivals of the mysterious Phantom Ranger and Divatox's ruthless brother General Havoc. When Havoc steals the Turbo Megazord, the Phantom Ranger gives the Turbo Rangers new Rescuezords to help them recover their stolen property, giving them even greater power.
However, tragedy and devastation ultimately befalls the Rangers. The Rescue Megazord and Turbo Megazord are destroyed in battle with the invincible monster Goldgoyle, Dimitria and Blue Senturion leave for the planet Eltar, which is under attack from evil forces, and the Power Chamber is invaded and destroyed by Divatox's armies. Divatox's victory is cut short when she is contacted by a messenger of Dark Specter, who tells her that Zordon has been captured and orders her to leave for the Cimmerian Planet.
As the Rangers overhear, they realize that they need to follow Divatox. Arriving at NASADA, the Rangers commandeer a space shuttle and launch it in pursuit, though Justin doesn't go with them as he wishes to remain on Earth with his father. The story continues... with Power Rangers in Space.

- Power Rangers Turbo is the first season:
- To be themed after automobiles. The next (and, to date, last) season to do this would be Power Rangers RPM.
- To include an actor or actress playing a villain in the opening credits (not counting the Japanese dub of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which credited Machiko Soga in its opening). In this case, both Carol Hoyt and Hilary Shepard Turner appear in the intro as Divatox during their respective stints on the show.
- To feature a Ranger who only last as a main cast member for a single season; in this case, Justin Stewart.
- Not to feature Billy Cranston, as he had left for Aquitar during the events of Power Rangers Zeo. As such, it is also the first season not to feature him in the opening credits.
- Not to feature any of the original five Rangers from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (not counting Jason and Kimberly's appearances in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie or stock footage of their scenes from the movie in "Shift into Turbo: Part 1").
- Not to feature its Sixth Ranger in its final episode, as the Phantom Ranger had made his final appearance in the episode "Clash of the Megazords".
- Not to feature an Ultrazord Zord combination.
- Turbo is the only season to date to feature a child who can morph into a Ranger, the child in this case being Justin Stewart. Thus far, the concept of a child being a Ranger has occurred three times in the Super Sentai franchise: Kou the Kiba Ranger (Tommy's White Ranger counterpart) from Gosei Sentai Dairanger, Riki the King Ranger (Trey/Jason's Gold Ranger counterpart) from Choriki Sentai Ohranger, and Kotaro in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
- Turbo is the second season where it appears the villains have one in the finale, the other's being Mighty Morphin season 3 and Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers. This would not happen again until Power Rangers Megaforce.
- Turbo is the only Power Rangers series to date that (starting with the episode "Stitch Witchery") uses eyecatches from its Super Sentai counterpart to lead into and out of commercial breaks. The eyecatches are edited out of the Netflix version.
- Turbo is the final Zordon Era season to feature Rangers who had previously served on the Mighty Morphin and Zeo teams; in this case, Tommy Oliver, Adam Park, Tanya Sloan and Katherine Hillard. Of those four, only Tommy has thus far served on another Ranger team, in Power Rangers Dino Thunder.
- With the introduction of TJ, Carlos, Ashley and Cassie, and the episode "Passing the Torch", the second iteration of the Turbo team is the first to be comprised of Rangers not featured in previous seasons.
Turbo is one of the few Power Rangers seasons to keep the Sentai term for a part of the Rangers' arsenal. In this case, the term "Auto Blaster" was transferred over from Carranger.
