From Chrysler press: The 2007 Chrysler Sebring was redesigned and re-launched in a bid to sustain the momentum started by the Chrysler 300 and continued with the Dodge Caliber. The 2007 Chrysler Sebring became available in U.S. dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2006 and in global volume markets in the first half of 2007.
Three engine options power the 2007 Chrysler Sebring. Sebring’s standard 2.4-liter World Engine with dual variable valve timing (VVT) rivals all four-cylinder engines in the mid-size-car segment with its combination of fuel economy and solid performance. Mated to a four-speed automatic transaxle, this new engine provides a 13 percent increase in horsepower (173 horsepower vs. 150 horsepower) and 4 percent improvement in fuel economy compared with the 2.4-liter engine it replaces.
An available enhanced 2.7-liter V-6 engine provides value- and performance-conscious consumers the power of a V-6 engine with a price that compares with the competition’s four-cylinder engine. Chrysler Sebring’s available 2.7-liter V-6 engine produces 189 horsepower and 191 lb.-ft. of torque, providing more low-end torque (at an rpm 850 lower) compared with the 2.7-liter engine it replaces.
Chrysler Sebring sedan also is available with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 235 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft. of torque coupled with a new six-speed automatic transaxle that comes standard with AutoStick. The combination of the upgraded 3.5-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transaxle delivers excellent performance and fuel efficiency and quiet operation.
