2015 Chrysler 200
The Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee’s base design has been somewhat extended for the 200 for 2015. As a result, the ride is quieter and more refined, thanks to the foundation being more structurally robust than before. For a vehicle in this class, the handling is outstanding. We can’t say the same for Chrysler’s 200 midsize sedan’s 184-horsepower four-cylinder engine from the previous generation, which greatly improves its predecessor. Despite this, Chrysler still offers a V6 as an option. It’s one of the most powerful engines, with 295 horsepower. The new nine-speed automatic gearbox greatly improves the vehicle’s fuel consumption. On V6 variants, all-wheel drive is now available on the 2015 Chrysler 200, making it a more capable vehicle in the winter.
The 2015 CHRYSLER 200 is offered in 4 trim levels:
- C: 28 combined MPG
- LX: 9-Speed A/T
- Limited: Front Wheel Drive
- S: 22 combined MPG
Performance and Fuel Economy
Customers will look forward to the segment-first standard nine-speed automatic gearbox, unique all-wheel-drive system, two engine choices, and spirited ride and handling qualities. MultiAir 2 Tigershark I-4 2.4 liters with 184 horsepower and 173 lb-ft torque, a 5 mile per gallon gain over the preceding model’s highway fuel efficiency of 36 mpg. Outstanding 295 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque from the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, EPA highway fuel efficiency estimates 32 mpg, up three miles per gallon over the previous model. It is possible to choose between a front-wheel-drive or an all-wheel-drive system for the 2015 Chrysler 200, which delivers superb driving characteristics in any road or weather situation. The complete rear-axle disconnect is standard on the 2015 Chrysler 200, making it the first mid-size sedan to have it. As a result, the driver does not need to be involved in switching between front and all-wheel drive modes.
Inside and exterior, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is well-designed and doesn’t draw attention to its close connection with the Dodge Dart. In contrast to the Dart’s tautly drawn lines, the 200’s cockpit seems to be covered in sheet metal, giving it a more laid-back feel. Despite its striking similarities to several other brand-new and recently released automobiles, its superb appearance shouldn’t be diminished. The 200’s profile has a lengthy pedigree, dating back to the Audi A7, Ford Fusion, and Hyundai Genesis, all of which have inherited its sleek roofline and Saab-like front end. Hyundai Elantra’s current model has a similar downturned shoulder line that descends to the rear end with the same aesthetic effect. The Chrysler 200’s wheels are positioned much inboard of the car’s front and tail, but the long roofline hides this fact. The front and rear overhang are substantial since it is constructed on a compact-car wheelbase.
This year’s Chrysler 200 has a little more room inside and more mass on the outside. It’s larger than the preceding 200 and somewhat larger than the Dodge Dart, which shares part of its running gear. However, the backseat is much smaller than in some of the most popular family sedans—mid-size sedans with small vehicle beginnings but little room to grow into their full-size potential. Based on its appearance, the Chrysler 200 is closer to the Dart than you may think. The Chrysler 200 has 101.4 cubic feet of passenger space because of its 108.0-inch wheelbase. Only 4.2 cubic feet less volume and 1.6 millimeters shorter wheelbase separate the Dart from the Focus. While the 200 is just a few cubes short of a Fusion or Sonata in terms of cube count, the arrangement of those cubes is less favorable.
There is plenty of legroom in the front seats, and the driver’s seat is comfortable for six-footers. However, we would like some under-seat storage like Chrysler gives in the Dodge Journey in the 200’s optional sport seats, which have a nice range of adjustability and strong bolsters for long-distance support. For taller drivers, the Chrysler 200 has a lower center of gravity than the Dodge Dart, allowing them to view the 200’s headliner and the road ahead.
