2015 Chrysler 200 Sets New Benchmarks


WHAT’S NEW: For 2015, the Chrysler 200 is completely redesigned and now offered as a 5-passenger sedan only.

Call it casual elegance or affordable luxury, but either way, the 2015 Chrysler 200 steps up the mid-size sedan driving experience with a whole new set of benchmarks that showcase the brand’s updated design language and state-of-the-art technology. Trims include the base LX, uprated Limited, sporty 200S and premium 200C.

The graceful new exterior styling is highlighted by integrated grille and headlight elements, creating a fluid look that extends along the sides. Standard equipment includes fully automatic projector beam halogen headlights, power side mirrors and LED taillights. The 200S model replaces the standard chrome trim with gloss black and adds integrated dual exhausts.

Rotary Shift Dial and Uconnect 8.4-inch Touchscreen
The well-crafted interior features a low-profile state-of-the-art electronic rotary shift dial enabling a unique pass-through storage space beneath. For driver convenience, the standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel incorporates audio and cruise controls. Tech savvy options include a 7-inch LED instrument cluster display that provides important vehicle information such as speed and real-time fuel economy, and the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen multimedia command center with hands-free voice command and smartphone app integration.

Engine choices start with a 184 horsepower 2.4-liter inline-four. Optional on the 200S and 200C is a 295 horsepower 3.6-liter V6. Both engines are mated to an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission. Front wheel drive is standard, while V6 equipped models can be equipped with all-wheel-drive. An optional sport mode with paddle shifters provides a more spirited driving experience.

Here are the highest and lowest estimates for fuel economy:
Highest: 23 City / 36 Highway (2.4L)
Lowest: 18 City / 29 Highway (3.6L, AWD)

Standard safety features on the 2015 200 include an electronic park brake with SafeHold, which secures the vehicle if the driver opens the door and unlatches the seat belt while in gear. Optional ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist guides the driver into parking spaces.

The 200 is backed by a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Offering a premium-level motoring experience in a value-packed mid-size sedan, the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 sets a new standard for affordable elegance.
