24 June 2006
|The 2007 Sebring|
Chrysler is introducing its all-new 2007 Sebring with a 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine for key diesel markets outside North America. This is Chrysler’s first mid-size sedan diesel offering.
Models of the 2007 Sebring sold in North America have a choice of three gasoline engines: the new 2.4-liter four-cylinder World Engine, a 2.7-liter V-6 engine and an available 3.5-liter V-6 engine coupled with a new six-speed automatic transaxle with Auto Stick.
The diesel engine will deliver an estimated 140 horsepower (103 kW) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque.
Coupled to a four-speed automatic transaxle, the standard 2.4-liter World Engine provides a 15% increase in horsepower (172 hp (128 kW) vs. 150 hp (112 kW)) and 4% improvement in fuel economy compared with the 2.4-liter engine it replaces. The engine develops 165 lb-ft (222 Nm) of torque, and offer estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg city, 31 mpg highway.
The available 2.7-liter V-6 engine produces 190 hp (142 kW) and 190 lb-ft (258 Nm) of torque, providing more low-end torque (at an rpm 850 lower) compared with the 2.7-liter engine it replaces. Fuel economy is an estimated 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway.
Chrysler Sebring sedans sold in the United States are also available with 3.5-liter V-6 engines that produce 235 hp (175 kW) and 232 lb-ft (315 Nm) of torque coupled with a new six-speed automatic transaxle that comes standard with Auto Stick. Fuel economy is an estimated 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway.
The 2007 Chrysler Sebring is one of the first Chrysler Group vehicles to offer the new six-speed automatic transaxle.
The 2007 Chrysler Sebring will be available in US dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2006 and in global volume markets in the first half of 2007.
