2011 NAIAS: Chrysler 200 [Live Photos]
The 200 will be offered with a choice of tow engines. The first will be Chrysler's 2.4-liter inline-four, mated to either a four- or six-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 will be available on higher-end trim levels, offering 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft.
Inside the vehicle, upgraded seats with a new design that incorporates more cushion material and revised spring geometry, as well as new leather and cloth seating materials, envelop the driver and passenger. The 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan is available in four models, LX, Touring, Limited and S.
The base price, including destination, will be $19,995, while the Touring model raises the pricetag to $21,995, and the Limited starts at $24,495. The base model comes with four-speed automatic, four-cylinder engine, 17 inch steel wheels, four speaker stereo, air conditioning, manual driver's seat, and no options; most buyers will probably opt for the better-equipped Touring or Limited, described below. LX trim level offers four-wheel antilock disc brakes, cruise control, stabilizer bars front and rear, and a 525 amp battery.
"The new Chrysler brand vehicles epitomize Walter P. Chrysler's legacy of beautifully engineered vehicles with style and substance – design with purpose. Our new Chrysler vehicles have a distinctive design vocabulary ... one that is written in steel, glass and leather, and gives customers choice of beauty and substance, and at a surprising value," said Olivier Francois, President and CEO of the Chrysler Brand, in a recent press release.
