Chrysler will unveil the 2015 Chrysler 200 at the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), but the first images already emerged on the Web. As you can see from the photos, the 2015 Chrysler 200 looks much better than its predecessor, but we have to mention that the model presented here is wearing the S trim.
Some of the highlights of the 2015 Chrysler 200 are the standard nine-speed automatic transmission which enables a highway fuel economy rating of 35 miles per gallon. Moreover, the Chrysler 200 comes with the optional all-wheel-drive system that delivers an automatic fully disconnecting rear axle in order to improve fuel economy by reducing loss when all-wheel drive is not needed.
A choice of two engines will be available: the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine rated at 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque or the standard 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark I-4 engine that produces 184 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Chrysler 200 features state-of-the-art electronic shifting with rotary dial.
Inside, we find an inventive center console offering pass-through storage space for driver and passengers, covered charging station and sliding cupholders. Chrysler says that the new 200 delivers an array of easy-to-use, state-of-the-art advanced technology in order to keep drivers connected and informed but focused on the road. Pricing starts at $21,700 (excluding $995 destination).
