2015 Chrysler 200 is good enough to replace its predecessor, execs say

Article by Christian A., on March 27, 2014

The redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200 is good enough to replace its predecessor and the Dodge Avenger, executives at Chrysler Group believe. They are also confident that the new 200 could still gain in the already crowded mid-sized sedan segment. In 2013, Chrysler sold 122,480 units of the 200 and 93,842 units of the Avenger. Chrysler plans the new 200 to at least match the combined sales of its two predecessors. The vehicle is underpinned by a Fiat-derived platform – the CUSW – that also underpins the Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee.

It also shares many parts with them. The new base LX model has a starting price of $22,695 and is powered by a 184-hp 2.4-liter inline-four. Up on the trim level is the Limited that has a starting price of $24,250.

Prices include shipping. For those wanting to avail of leather seats and Chrysler’s 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, they could avail of the S trim level, which has a starting price of $25,490, including shipping.

Coming as an option on the S trim is an all-wheel-drive system similar to the Cherokee’s which automatically disconnects the rear differential and driveshaft when additional traction isn’t needed. Chrysler also added a new top-level trim – C – which features more interior luxuries like a wood grain instrument bezel. It has a starting price of $26,990.

A customer could choose to avail of all the options -- an awd 200C with 295-hp 3.6-liter V-6 – and shell out nearly $39,000, executives said. Prices include shipping. The 200 features a new exterior styling which Chrysler executives said resulted in improved aerodynamics and fuel economy. Chrysler brand boss Al Gardner expects the 200 to return 35 mpg on the highway.
