2014 Chrysler 200 will debut early next year

Article by Christian A., on March 26, 2013

When Chrysler's midsize sedan starts production in early 2014, it will get a major makeover, according to the leaked documents that Automotive News came across with. There are plans for a shortened model year for the 2014 Chrysler 200 sedan, which will enter production this summer but will end in January (around 6 months early).

The 2014 model has a short production run because Chrysler will be retooling its Sterling Heights, Michigan, assembly plant to build the next 200. These documents don’t mention anything about the Dodge Avenger, which is built on the same platform as the 200.

There are plans for a midsize Dodge sedan but no details about this model have been divulged. It’s likely that the 2015 Chrysler 200 will be introduced at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit but it’s also possible that it will debut this fall at the Los Angeles show.

There’s few information revealed about the next-generation 200 but it’s believed that there will be a new Jeep Cherokee's 9-speed automatic transmission as well as the 2.4-liter engine for the Dodge Dart and a new 3.2-liter V6 based on the 3.6-liter engine presently used by the 200. It’s believed that the 200 will be using a Fiat-derived platform.

Sales of the existing 200 significantly increased but it’s partly because of how popular the 200 is to fleet buyers. There are doubts about the 200 Convertible but basically, Chrysler owns the large front-wheel-drive non-sporty convertible segment, so it's likely that the droptop will be seen with a fourth generation model.
