Known previously as the Sebring, the midsize 200 joined the Chrysler lineup in 2011 after a thorough overhaul. The 200 lineup is unique in its class for offering a convertible variant.
There are five available trim levels with two engines between them. The first is a 2.4-liter 173-horsepower four-cylinder and the other is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 making 283 horsepower. All get a six-speed automatic transmission except for the base model, which uses a four-speed transmission.
This first-generation 200 is will be phased out rather quickly as it makes way for a redesigned model in 2014.
For 2015, Chrysler completely overhauled the 200, giving it a sleeker body to do battle with midsize, sub-luxury models. Part of this redesign was the elimination of the convertible model. The redesigned 200 has two engines available, including the familiar 3.6-liter engine and one new four-cylinder powerplant. The tried and true 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 cranks out 295 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, while the new 2.4-literMultiAir 2 Tigershark engine puts down 184 horses and 173 pound-feet of torque. Also part of the 2015 upgrade is a new, nine-speed auto transmission.
In 2011, Chrysler revised the body of its aging Sebring model and renamed it the 200. The first-generation 200 came as a sedan or convertible, just like its predecessor. Standard was a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Optional on the 200 was a 3.6-liter V6 with 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. In 2013, Chrysler eliminated the S trim level and converted it to an optional package for the Touring and Limited trims. In 2014, the automaker dropped the four-speed automatic, leaving the once-optional six-speed automatic as the base transmission.
