Although the Chrysler 200 is no longer in production (it ended production late in 2016), there are still a number of them available at All Star Chrysler in Bridgeton. The Chrysler 200 is a midsized sedan that offers a smooth drive at a great price point. Today we want to talk a bit about a specific sweet spot within the 200 line that we found while doing a test drive.
This 200 wore handsome Black Forest Green Pearl paint, so dark it looks black under some lighting conditions, over a Linen and Black interior. Whether or not it’s due to Fiat’s Italian influence, the tastefulness of Chrysler’s color and trim choices has improved dramatically in recent times.
The car we test drove was outfitted in Limited Platinum trim, a new designation for the 2016 year that packs a lot of value. Initially, the base 200LX and the one-step-up Limited offered only the four-cylinder engine, while the sportier 200S and luxury-centered 200C opened the pathway to V-6 and all-wheel-drive options. Late in 2015, Chrysler made the V-6 optional on Limited models (you still need to go for the S or the C to get all-wheel drive). For 2016, the most sought-after options are loaded into the Platinum designation, which wears the same $25,485 base price as the Limited (double check the actual 200 price with a member of the All Star team) but includes equipment that would have cost $1970 as separate options under the former price structure (an upgrade to the Uconnect infotainment system from the standard 5.0-inch screen to a navigation-capable version with an 8.4-inch screen, plus leather-trimmed bucket seats). Since the 200 is no longer in production, you will have to find a trim that offers the options that you want, since you can no longer order a 200.
