Chrysler Sebring Models and Sebring History

Created as a two-door version of the Chrysler Cirrus in 1995, the Sebring was introduced as a hardtop. A soft-top convertible model was added the following year. Named after a famous Florida sports car racing track, the Chrysler Sebring excelled in promoting comfort and sportiness at an affordable price. From 1998 to 2000, the Sebring nameplate was restricted to Chryslers mid-sized coupe and convertible. Available engine power arrived from a 140-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 2.5-liter V-6 producing 163 horsepower.


A five-speed manual came standard with the four-cylinder model while a four-speed automatic was fitted to the six-cylinder versions of the Sebring. In 2001, Chrysler discontinued use of the Cirrus name allowing the four-door sedan to merge with the Sebring line-up. Redesigned for 2001, the second-generation Chrysler Sebrings three body styles incorporated a new front-end look. Revised engine power consisted of a 150-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 200-horsepower 2.7-liter V-6 powerplant.



A standard feature list consisting of amenities such as air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and an AM/FM with cassette player gave the Chrysler Sebring an alluring equipment package for a mid-sized car. The two-door hardtop coupe version of the Sebring was discontinued after the 2005 model year. A third-generation Chrysler Sebring sedan debuted in 2007. The Sebring convertible model returned in 2008 with a retractable hardtop.



Styled similarly to the Chrysler Crossfire, streaks running along the hood of the Sebring were eventually withdrawn from mid-sized cars design. In 2008, the all-wheel drive became an option on the four-door version of the Sebring, The refinement level of the Chrysler Sebring was elevated again in 2009 when four-wheel disc brakes became standard on all models. Using a heavily revised Sebring platform, Chrysler relaunched their mid-sized car line as the 200 for 2011.
