2015 Chrysler 200 launches with strong orders

15 May 2014

More than 10,000 vehicle orders were placed for the 2015 Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan (earlier post) on the day the vehicle ordering system opened on 8 May, and more than 17,000 vehicle orders were placed in the first two days, Chrysler said. The Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant (SHAP) is at full production through mid-July.

With a starting US Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $21,700 (excluding destination), the 2015 Chrysler 200 is available in four different models: the 2015 Chrysler 200 LX model; Chrysler Limited model; Chrysler 200S model; and the premium Chrysler 200C.

The car features a segment-first standard nine-speed automatic transmission; electronic shifting with a rotary e-dial; and available all-wheel-drive system that reduces parasitic losses with a disconnection rear axle.

Consumers have a choice of two engines, the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine which produces a best-in-class 295 hp (220 kW) and 262 lb-ft (355 N·m) of torque, or the standard 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark I-4 engine, which produces 184 hp (137 kW), 173 lb-ft (235 N·m) of torque and achieves a highway fuel economy rating of 36 mpg (6.5 l/100 km).
