Chrysler 200: Generations of Greatness

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler near St. Peters

When you need a great sedan, you think Chrysler. If you want a great sedan that is a little smaller, but still very roomy, you think Chrysler 200. Though the 200 has not been around for as long as some of the other models in the lineup, it has still seen some great generations. Today we want to take a look back at the start of the Chrysler 200. You can still get your own Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler near St. Peters.

The first generation Chrysler 200 was a restyled, rebadged and re-engineered version of the third generation Chrysler Sebring that began production in 2006. Although the JS platform had been retained, there were many cosmetic and powertrain changes to the 200. The 2.4 L four-cylinder 173 hp (129 kW) 166 lb·ft (225 N·m) engine with either a four-speed or six-speed automatic transmission carried over. Chrysler’s new Pentastar 3.6 L V6 engine was also offered with a six-speed automatic transmission, generating 283 hp (211 kW) and 260 lb·ft (350 N·m) of torque. A flex-fuel version of the 3.6 L Pentastar engine was also available. Other changes included stiffer body mounts, revised suspension geometry with a softer ride rate, a new rear sway bar, and upgraded tires. The 200 was also more highly equipped than the Sebring. Chrysler added features such as LED lighting, thicker seat cushioning with higher quality materials, along with new measures to decrease noise, vibration, and harshness.

“The 200 and its badge engineered variant the Dodge Avenger, were ranked the “Most American Made” sedans and convertibles by The Kogod Made in America Auto Index in 2013.”-wikipedia.com

What’s Going to Happen to the Chrysler 200?

Chrysler 200 at All Star Chrysler near IL

We all know that the Chrysler 200 is no longer in production, which is a sad state of affairs. It was such a lovely sedan! But why is it gone and what is replacing it? We are not entirely sure but would like to speculate a little with you here today. When will we see this Chrysler 200 replacement at All Star Chrysler near IL? – Let’s talk!

“As TTAC’s Timothy Cain said in his heartfelt obituary, the 200’s passing is more than just the loss of a slow-selling model — it’s the death of FCA’s midsize car portfolio. Formerly numbering one (after the death of the barely facelifted Dodge Avenger), the warehouse’s tenant list now registers zero occupants.”-thetruthaboutcars.com

Think back to any previous decade. Back then, could you picture a day when the Chrysler stable contained just two models? That’s where we’re at: an aging rear-wheel-drive sedan and a minivan are the only things keeping Chrysler from joining Plymouth, Eagle, and DeSoto in the cold, cold ground.

Chrysler needs a lower-rung model, and the 200 — for all of its improvement in appearance and interior furnishings — wasn’t it. Maybe it was the bad taste in consumers’ mouths left over from the Sebring, the lack of name recognition, the poltergeist-plagued nine-speed automatic, or the cramped rear quarters. Either way, so very few takers. Sad!

You can still get the Chrysler 200 at All Star – there are still a few 200 models left on the lot! Head to the All Star dealership today and check out these wonderful sedans. Though there many be few remaining, we are sure that this sedan will be revived in the future, or at least we hope so! For more information stop by the All Star dealership today!

The Future of FCA

New Cars at All Star Chrysler near St. Louis

Fall is nearly upon us – the weather is cooling off, leaves are starting to fall, and school has started (and all the parents are beaming with delight). This is also the time of year in which we start to get glimpses of the next year’s models. We start seeing spy shots and reading reviews about the new models. We wanted to take a look a little further into the future as to what we might see from FCA (Fiat Chrysler). Soon you will be able to get these great new vehicles at All Star Chrysler near St. Louis.

  • Around 2018, the Dodge Journey is to become a rear wheel drive crossover, á la Maserati Levante; its role as a front wheel drive crossover is likely to go to a Chrysler. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio crossover is pretty much here; according to Automotive News, the Journey will be made on the same line as the Stelvio and imported to the US. Chances are the Journey will be heavier and have lower performance, but also a much lower price.
  • Dodge Avenger / Dodge Barracuda is the upcoming rear wheel drive midsized car (the name may change).
  • A new Dodge Charger and Challenger have been pushed back to 2020-21 (so they can persuade critics that Chrysler had no part in the pricier Alfa Romeo Giulia? Insiders say no, they just needed more time). The 2021 Charger and Challenger will have a base four-cylinder turbo, and a turbo six; Hemi options are likely to be the 392 and possibly the Hellcat, but the 5.7 will probably be replaced by the turbo-six. Note: Automotive News wrote that the fully new Charger and Challenger are coming in 2018.
