The 2015 Chrysler 200 has finally been revealed with some new details ahead of its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week. Thanks to some photos published by Jalopnik, this new sedan really look much different from its predecessor, both in terms of its exterior and interior design; it’s at least in line with what we’ve said in our previous article.
The Auburn Hills-based automaker has apparently been really providing a significant redesign on its exterior, where the new model looks slimmer and sportier than its predecessor. The front-end design of the car has been revised and the overall design looks a lot better than the current model. There are some new details that show changes in the front end of the car such as new headlights design and redesigned grille.
Talking about the engine specs, the entry-level 2015 Chrysler 200 is powered by a 2.4-liter TigerShark four-cylinder engine that can deliver 184 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque. If it’s not good enough for you, don’t worry because Chrysler also offers an optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with a peak output at least 295 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines will be available with a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard on the car, complete with rotary knob and paired to the innovative all-wheel drive system (AWD) with a rear axle disconnect feature. Fuel economy is expected to return 35 mpg on the highway or around 6.7-liters/100 km.
As for the release date and price, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is scheduled to go on sale in U.S. dealerships later this year with a starting price of $21,700 (MSRP), but would exclude $995 destination charge. The new sedan is expected to be officially launched towards the end of 2014. Chrysler will bring the new 200 sedan at the Detroit Auto Show this month, so stay tuned for further updates.
