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
