2011 Chrysler 200 sedan is one quiet car

Article by Christian A., on November 30, 2010

Ben Winter, Chrysler Group's vehicle line executive for minivans and mid-sized vehicles, is proud of what the group has done concerning the NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) on the 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan. Consumer Reports magazine had described the mid-sized Chrysler Sebring as "noisy and unrefined."

Thus, Chrysler had transformed the Sebring, now called the 200, into a sedan wherein passengers can talk to each other without raising their voices.

The new 200 is the poster child for an engineering full-court press at Chrysler in the past year on its much maligned current lineup. The engineering team worked on all 16 vehicles and improved many parts, including the NVH, suspensions and powertrains.

Of the 16 models, the Grand Cherokee, Jeep Liberty and Wrangler and the Ram HD Chassis Cabs have already been made available. In addition, the Jeep Patriot is expected to soon hit showrooms. Designers had redone the interiors and updated the exteriors to silence criticism that the vehicles are cheap.

Coming late in 2010 or in 2011 are the Dodge Durango, Charger, Avenger, Grand Caravan, Journey and Challenger; the Jeep Compass; the Chrysler 200, Town & Country and 300; and the Fiat 500. [via autonews - sub. required]
