Chrysler 200 Shows Off New Looks, New Power in Detroit
The Chrysler 200 has never been much of a looker, but what was previously a sub-par sedan has been thoroughly worked over courtesy of the design team over at Chrysler. We'd say it's a 200 we would actually want to drive and own. The all-new face though isn't the only thing Chrysler had to show at this year's Detroit Auto Show. The 200 comes with a whole new platform, ditching the aging Sebring chassis in place of something a little more Italian. Now fully owned by Fiat, Chrysler is beginning the onslaught of Italian-born sedans — and the 200 is one of the first examples of this plan.

Utilizing front- and all-wheel drivetrains, the new 200 will be powered by a 184-horsepower 2.4-liter inline-four, and an optional 295-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. Both of these new engines will be paired to a more efficient 9-speed transmission.
Starting at a measly $21,700, the Chrysler 200 will be the luxury sedan on a budget when it goes on sale later in the year.
