Chrysler 200 Models and 200 History

Dropping the Sebring name, Chryslers adoption of the 200 nameplate was implemented in 2011. Stylistically similar to its predecessor, the 2011 Chrysler 200 was considerably refined with enhanced power and deepened premium attributes. Lowered slightly for a more road-conforming ride, the 200 showed-off new headlamp housings featuring LED strips, freshened taillights and higher quality wheels.

 

The interior was also upgraded with the introduction of the Chrysler 200 pleasing the occupants through tighter build tolerances, the use of better materials and better sound insulation. Offered as a four-door sedan or a two-door convertible, the 2011 Chrysler 200 was offered with a four-cylinder as well as a six-cylinder engine. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder World Engine powerplant served as the inexpensive choice for the Chrysler 200. Producing 173 horsepower, the World Engine could run up to 31 miles on a gallon of gasoline. Coming standard on the performance-tailored 200 S models was the 283 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine.

 

 

As well as being powerful, the Pentastar V-6 engine provided an environmentally beneficial advantage by being compatible to run E85 blended gasoline. The 2011 Chrysler 200 was offered with a four-speed and six-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler originally mentioned a dual-clutch transmission was slated for the 200 but the gearbox never materialized between 2011 and 2014 model years. Anti-lock disc brakes, cruise control, MP3 compatible stereo system and emergency trunk release was standard on all models of the mid-sized Chrysler vehicle.

 

 

The Chrysler 200 S and the luxury-appointed Limited model included standard leather-upholstered interiors. The retail price of the base model Chrysler 200 dropped to under $19,000 for 2012. The Chrysler 200 sedan and convertible remained largely unchanged between the 2011 and 2014 model years. For 2015, an all-new Chrysler 200 sedan heavily based on Fiat Group components premiered.
