The 2011 Chrysler 200 won't be the most fuel-efficient ride in its class, as the EPA has rated the new midsize sedan at 20/31 mpg in city/highway. The figures are available for the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that's available with a six-speed automatic transmission standard on Touring and Limited trim levels, as KickingTires reported. In other words, this means the new Chrysler 200 is less fuel-efficient than Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata, the same source added.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that develops 283 horsepower is by far more efficient, achieving 19/29 mpg in city/highway. This means the future model is more efficient than Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu, but slots below Toyota Camry in the US midsize sedan class.

Chrysler 200, which will most likely be presented at the 2011 NAIAS this month, will replace the Sebring in the United States and will be offered with revised front and rear fascias, fenders and grille, a new Chrysler badge, new projector lamps and the new LED taillights, as well as a LED center high-mounted stop light.

Inside, the US-based manufacturer will offer a new instrument panel, bezels and gauge face, upgraded seats with a new design that incorporates more cushion material and revised spring geometry as well as new leather and cloth seating materials, new “soft touch” armrests and dash, and new heating and cooling outlets in the instrument panel.

autoevolution will be attending the 2011 North American International Auto Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions.
