As we already mentioned, the 2015 Chrysler 200 will be underpinned by the company’s CUSW platform, also shared by the Dodge Dart and the brand new 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Little is known about the sedan’s powertrain, but the new 200 will become available with Chrysler’s new nine-speed automatic transmission.
“The new 200 is going to be a different car. People will wake up and come to buy that car. The new 200 is a complete home run. It’s got that strength of a very, very expensive European sedan like a Mercedes, but it’s definitively American,” Chrysler dealer David Kelleher said last month.
