2011 Chrysler 200 mid-sized sedan
Chrysler announced that its all-new midsize sedan will be called the 200. Most notable from these snapshots are the narrower front and rear lights and the restyled Chrysler emblem. The 200 will come with a choice of two powertrains: the 2.4-liter four-cylinder carried over from the previous generation with either a four-speed or six-speed automatic, and higher-end versions will get the company’s new 3.6-liter V-6 with 283 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque and a six-speed automatic. That’s more power than what V-6 versions of the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or Ford Fusion produce.
We expect to learn more as the auto show season approaches.
Chrysler has revealed the mystery around its fully enhanced 2011 Chrysler 200 mid-sized sedan, promising fans and customers remarkable styling, reinforced driving experience, technology innovations, and of course abundance of standard safety features.
Chrysler is laying it on thick this week, with both the updated 2011 Chrysler Grand Voyager and Jeep Patriot revealed earlier today, and now a trio of teaser images for the upcoming 2011 Chrysler 200.
In Australia, the Sebring Cabrio is currently offered with a 2.7 litre V6 engine producing a significantly lower 137kW.
Speaking with TMR today, Chrysler Australia's Dean Bonthorne confirmed that with the current Sebring sedan not being part of the Australian range, there are no plans to give the upcoming 200 a local launch.
