2014 Detroit Auto Show Live: Chrysler 200

The Chrysler 200 has arrived in the flesh to make its official debut during the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, looking significantly different and more refined than its predecessor.

The model has a stylish and significantly odd exterior design, having almost no connection to its larger stable mate, the 300 (sold under the Lancia brand in Europe). More so, although Chrysler products have had a typically mediocre interior, the 200’s cabin proves an exciting surprise, with high quality materials and an attractive design. We note the ‘floating’ center console, metallic trim, an “e-shift rotary knob” and a familiar infotainment system.

“Chrysler engineers used the latest technological advances combined with a passion for excellence when developing the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan,” said Mitch Clauw, Vehicle Line Executive, C and D Segment Engineering – Chrysler Group LLC. “With an all-new body structure, a standard nine- speed transmission and an innovative all-wheel drive system, the 200 sedan has an amazing road presence and is so much fun to drive, we can’t wait for our customers to get behind the wheel.”

The Chrysler 200 was engineered on the basis of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s technical platform and utilizes the Compact U.S. Wide (CUS-wide) architecture. Under the hood, two engines are available: a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine with 184 bhp (137 kW) and 173 lb-ft (234 Nm) of torque and a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 295 bhp (220 kW) and 262 lb-ft (355 lb-ft) of torque.

Both engines are connected to the new nine-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system which has a “complete rear-axle disconnect”.
