Chrysler gives us the full Monty on its new Model 200

LA CAR REPORT AND NEWSWIRE Auburn Hills, Mich.—Up until now, Chrysler Group LLC had been content with providing us with visual snippets of its new 200. Well, the automaker has decided to give us the full Monty on the car. Compared to the Sebring that it replaces, the Chrysler 200 is a considerable improvement. The company says that virtually every system in the sedan is new or upgraded for 2011. The Chrysler 200 gets a new powertrain lineup, featuring the 2.4-liter I-4 World Gas Engine mated to either a four-speed or six-speed automatic transaxle, or a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine which produces 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transaxle.

Improved ride and handling tuning are said to be the result of stiffened body mounts and softer ride rate. Improved suspension geometry with a raised roll center, a new rear sway bar, and new tires and an upgraded treatment for the reduction of noise, vibration and harshness including acoustic laminated glass for the windshield and front door windows are part of the new 200. The Chrysler 200 will be built at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Sterling Heights, Mich. and will arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter 2010.
