Although Chrysler has yet to announce fuel economy figures for the redesigned 2015 200, is appears that the US Department of Energy has already released some data for the V6-powered version of the sedan.
Specifically, says that the 2015 200 fitted with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive will return 18 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.

The figures are basically the same when compared to the current Pentastar-driven 200 with front-wheel drive. In short, the new sedan delivers more power and all-wheel drive with insignificant fuel economy loss.

On the other hand, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is outgunned by the all-wheel drive 2014 Ford Fusion with 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-pot, which is rated at 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined.

However, the Chrysler has nearly 40 horses over the Ford, with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 generating 295 hp and 262 pound-feet of torque.

According to the manufacturer, highway economy should go up to 35 mpg on the 2.4-liter Tigershark-powered sedan with front-wheel drive, but EPA estimates will become available later this year.

Unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the 2015 Chrysler 200 went into production earlier this month at the company’s plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan. The sedan will hit North American dealerships in a few months.
