2015 Chrysler 200 Summary

Changes for the 2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan:

Chrysler redesigns the midsize 200 Sedan this year, setting the stage for next-generation versions of the 300 Sedan and the Town & Country minivan, as well as an expansion of the lineup that will include a new compact Chrysler 100 and a crossover SUV. Buyers choose between a 4-cylinder and a V-6 engine, and front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Numerous convenience, infotainment, and safety technologies are available for the new 2015 Chrysler 200.

Model Lineup:

Chrysler sells the 2015 200 Sedan in 200 LX, 200 Limited, 200S, and 200C trim levels. Each comes with a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, with a 3.6-liter V-6 optional for the 200S and 200C.

Select the 200 Limited for LED running lights, aluminum wheels, a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, and other enhancements. The 200S adds a sportier look plus bigger wheels, a stiffer suspension, shift paddles, sport seats, a power driver’s seat, satellite radio, and more. Get the 200C for leather, heated front seats, automatic climate control, and other upgrades.

Engines and Transmissions:

The Chrysler 200 Sedan’s 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine generates 184 horsepower, delivered to the front wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission. Paddle shifters are standard for the sporty 200S model.

Choose the 200S or 200C, and you can upgrade to a more robust 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine. An all-wheel-drive system is available with the V-6 engine, and when not in use it disconnects from the drivetrain in order to conserve fuel.

Fuel Economy Ratings:

The 2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan’s standard 4-cylinder engine is rated to get 28 mpg in combined driving, while the V-6 engine returns 23 mpg. Install the optional AWD system, and the 200 earns a combined-driving rating of 22 mpg.

Safety Ratings:

As this summary is written, the 2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan has not been crash-tested by the NHTSA or by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Technology Highlights:

Unlike most cars, the Chrysler 200 Sedan’s transmission is equipped with a rotary knob that the driver twists in order to choose a gear. Bluetooth connectivity is standard for all models except the base 200 LX, while the 200C gets a humidity-sending dual-zone climate control system and a reversing camera.

Additional upgrades available for the new Chrysler 200 Sedan include a 9-1-1 Call system that automatically contacts emergency services personnel if the car’s airbags deploy, thereby speeding rescuers to the scene of the accident. The 200 Sedan is also available with Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and a Forward Collision Warning system with Active Braking.

Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment and navigation system with an 8.4-inch color touchscreen is also available, along with an Adaptive Cruise Control system with Stop & Go capability, automatic high-beam headlights, LED front running lights, a Parallel Park Assist system with Full Stop capability, and a Perpendicular Park Assist system. The parking assist technologies steer the car while the driver operates the transmission and pedals.
