After months of teasing, Chrysler has officially unveiled the new 200. It looks a Sebring with a touch of Jaguar XF.
After months of teasing, Chrysler has officially unveiled the 200.
Essentially a facelifted Sebring, the 200 features redesigned bumpers, a new grille, and a modified hood. Designers also added new exterior mirrors, restyled headlights and LED taillights.
While no interior pictures were released, Chrysler says the cabin is outfitted with a new instrument panel, better seats, and revised cloth / leather upholstery. Other goodies include "soft touch" armrests, revised air vents, and improved sound damping.
In the performance department, two engines will be available. The 2.4-liter will likely produce 173 hp (129 kW / 175 PS), while the 3.6-liter V6 churns out 283 hp (211 kW / 287 PS). A six-speed automatic transmission will be standard on the V6 and optional on the four-cylinder (a four-speed automatic is standard).
Furthermore, to fix the Sebring's flaccid handling, engineers installed stiffer body mounts, a new sway bar, and grippier tires.
No word on pricing, but the 2011 Chrysler 200 will start arriving at dealerships later this year.
