The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 made its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show as the industry’s first mid-sized sedan with a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. Featuring the new face of the Chrysler brand, 2015 Chrysler 200 will carry a price tag of just $21,700 (excluding $995 destination charge).
According to the American manufacturer now owned by Fiat, the 2015 Chrysler 200 has a muscular yet soulful presence and embodies a strong, sculptured exterior. The vehicle comes with new grille and headlamps, which are integrated for the first time. Chrysler 200 comes with signature light pipe or available full-LED daytime running lamps (DRL), LED fog lamps and standard LED taillamps.
The 2015 Chrysler 200S features gloss black trim and accent pieces rather than the standard bright trim. Integrated dual exhausts are standard and the available 19-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels complete the look. Inside, the 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan features well-crafted materials and comes with striking colors and trim combinations inspired by the celebrated American locations, such as 5th Avenue in New York City, Sausalito, California and Detroit.
The center console has a clever design and comes with a rotary shift knob. A unique pass-through storage feature that the driver and front-seat passenger can both access is enabled by the rotary-dial electronic shifting, a segment first. Chrysler offers a 7-inch LED full-color instrument cluster that allows drivers to receive information and feedback. The 2015 Chrysler 200 features the available award-winning Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia command center.
The 2015 Chrysler 200 is offered with a choice of two engines: the 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark I-4 and the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. The 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark I-4 engine generates 184 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque. Using the nine-speed automatic transmission, this engine promises a fuel economy of 35 mpg highway. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine delivers 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.
Chrysler will offer its customers four different models: 2015 Chrysler 200 LX model, Chrysler Limited model, Chrysler 200S model and the premium Chrysler 200C.
