At the recently finished North American International Show in Detroit the 2015 Chrysler 200 managed to attract a lot of attention and many positive opinions. This is one the redesigned models about which many drivers and potential buyers are talking about.
We will start with what is under the hood. New model comes with two engines, first we have the 2.4 liter engine and the optional is the 3.6 liter unit. Both of these offer decent amount of power and for those that are looking at the fuel economy as the main factor we suggest the 2.4 liter inline four cylinder Tigershark unit that produces 184 with the usage of MultiAir technology making it quite fuel efficient.
Customers that are looking for more serious performances will certainly opt for the 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar engine that provides 295 hp to driver. This is a decent improvement and allows this vehicle to be chosen by larger number of buyers no matter if they are chasing fuel efficiency or the performances. There is no doubt that many drivers will be more than happy to see small turbocharged unit and hybrid version but there are still no confirmation’s about either of these possibilities.
2015 Chrysler 200 Review
On the mid-size sedan market there will be some significant changes with the delivery of the 2015 Chrysler 200 that will become one of the benchmarks in this segment. This is one of the most competitive segments and main competitors like Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and similar, will certainly be ready and give this car run for the money.
The all new model is based on similar platform like Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee which was sourced from Alfa Romeo Giuliette. This is a great base for a vehicle with good drive dynamics for which the Alfa Romeo has been known for many years. Beside two engines that we have mentioned we could see the 1.4 liter turbocharged unit that was delivered to few of aforementioned vehicles and is capable of delivering 155 and 170 hp depending on the tuning setup.
All the latest technology available on the market will be implemented to both interior and exterior. For example on the back we will be getting LED tail lamps that are quite similar to those that we are getting from Maserati GranTurismo. Similarities on the outside with Dodge Dart are evident but still this is one quite great looking and unique vehicle that offers more prominent wings.
In the interior we have materials that provide more refined experience and because of this we have the feeling that this is a vehicle of higher class. A lot of attention was delivered to the creative use of space that allows comfort to be pushed to higher level. We are getting HVAC controls and rotary shift knob that gives it nice touch and premium feel that is rarely meet in this segment.
Release Date Of 2015 Chrysler 200
Details about the release date of this vehicle are still not confirmed but the rumors and reports that were delivered from more than one source suggest that we will be able to see this vehicle quite soon available on the market. In the next few months, most likely in August, sales should start.
