For customers that wish for substance and style but want a good value, then an obvious option is the 2011 Chrysler 200. It offers innovative technology, a special level of standard features, and a wide array of standard safety features. There is also the exceptional craftsmanship on the exterior and interior that many consumers want. This model boasts a spirited and refined driving experience. For this 2011 version, every system inside the sedan is either a new version or an upgraded one.
The result is that even for the highly competitive mid-size sedan class, the Chrysler 200 has its own space and identity. Some of the sheet metal and exterior upgrades include the grille that features Chrysler brand’s new winged badge, the front and rear fascias, the LED positioning light pipe on the front headlamps, rear deck lid and exterior mirrors, and the LED center high-mounted stoplight. It even has a new hood, new LED taillamps, and new projector headlamps and fog lamps.
Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC, President and CEO Olivier Francois shared that many customers today are not only smarter as they also want their cars to be the same, a vehicle that exhibits beauty and has substance. Francois continued that the Chrysler 200 continues to be capable, comfortable, reliable, safe, stylish, and fuel efficient.
Regardless of what the situation is, the driver is assured of handling performance and agility when driving the 2011 Chrysler 200. It is indeed a good vehicle to drive in, whether it’s used for an outing with friends and family, a weekend trip going through various twists and turns, or when simply driving to work.
Almost all parts of its suspension were either redesigned or retuned for the 2011 version. In fact, this was done on 26 of the 30 suspension bushings. Even its suspension geometry was re-engineered. The track is wider by one inch with the tire width being increased to 225 mm from 215 mm.
The body has been lowered as well with the front part now lower by 12 mm and the rear by 6 mm. This gives the Chrysler 200 a wider, lower, and more substantial stance. With this, customers will be able to drive this vehicle with confidence. Additional qualities of the Chrysler 200 include better steering precision, less body roll, improved isolation especially on rough roads, lower vehicle shake when running on uneven road surfaces, better response, and increased grip from the new premium tires.
The powertrain lineup, which has been improved, contributes as well to the driving experience. Under the hood, the 2011 Chrysler 200 has the recalibrated 2.4-liter World Gas Engine that’s paired with a six-speed transmission for that fun yet fuel efficient driving. This I-4 2.4-liter engine can deliver 173 horsepower with maximum torque at 166 lb.-ft.
There is also the option to have instead the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine which delivers amazing driving experience through the V-6 horsepower and the excellent fuel economy. It can deliver 280 horsepower with a top torque of 260 lb.-ft. and is paired with the 62TE six-speed transmission. For those who want to have more value, the 2.4-liter engine can be mated to an automatic four-speed transmission.
