From Chrysler press: For the 2008 model year, the Chrysler Sebring sedan is available as a Chrysler Sebring Limited all-wheel-drive (AWD) model, which is equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, six-speed transmission and standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP) with traction control. This Sebring Limited AWD model is the Chrysler brand’s first mid-size sedan to offer all-wheel-drive capability. The AWD system, available on models sold in the United States, works on demand, driving only the front wheels until power to the rear wheels is needed. All-wheel drive also is used on dry pavement between speeds of 25 and 65 mph to enhance handling during performance driving. This system provides added traction on snow, ice and other low-traction surfaces without having to be switched on and off.
Three fuel-efficient engine options power the 2008 Chrysler Sebring: the standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder World Engine, an available Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) 2.7-liter V-6 engine and an available 3.5-liter V-6 engine.
Sebring's 2.4-liter World Engine with dual variable valve timing delivers excellent fuel efficiency in the city of 21 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Chrysler Sebring's available 2.7-liter V-6 engine produces 186 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque. This 2.7-liter V-6 engine achieves 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. It also can operate effectively on any blend of gasoline and fuel-grade ethanol up to E-85.
Chrysler Sebring Limited sedans sold in the United States also are available with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 235 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft. of torque coupled with a six-speed automatic transaxle that comes standard with Auto Stick. This 3.5-liter V-6 engine achieves 16 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The Chrysler Sebring Limited AWD model achieves 15 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway based on 2008 EPA standards.
