After three years of being the poster child for everything wrong at Chrysler, the Sebring is officially dead. Well, sort of.

After three years of being the poster child for everything wrong at Chrysler, the Sebring is officially dead.

Despite your urge to rejoice, calm yourself, the 2011 Chrysler 200 is just a facelifted Sebring with a new name. While this doesn't sound good, the updated model features styling inspired by the 200C EV concept. Besides the improved aesthetics, the 200 has stiffened body mounts, a retuned suspension, and acoustic laminated glass for a quieter cabin.

The standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, but a 283 hp (211 kW / 287 PS) 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is available. The latter is connected exclusively to a six-speed automatic, where the four-cylinder comes with a four-speed unit (the six-speed auto is optional).

Scheduled to go on sale later this year, expect more information to be released shortly.
