In March, the Chrysler Group announced that it had added 800 jobs at its Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (SHAP) in Michigan to support production of the redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200. Now that the model is arriving at dealerships, it appears those new workers will be kept busy for the foreseeable future. More than 10,000 first-day vehicle orders were placed for the new Chrysler 200 on May 8, and more than 20,000 orders have been received in total, allowing Chrysler to keep SHAP at full-capacity production through mid-July.
Up front, the 2015 Chrysler 200 sports a winged brand badge in the middle of a black-mesh upper grille that flows into large, swept-back headlamps, while the midsize sedan’s coupe-like silhouette offers class-leading aerodynamics. That drag-resistant exterior combines with a segment-first standard nine-speed automatic transmission and a base 184-horsepower 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark four-cylinder engine to enable the new Chrysler 200 to return up to 36 mpg on the highway. Meanwhile, buyers can opt for added performance and capability with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that produces a best-in-class 295 horsepower and an advanced all-wheel-drive system that can fully disconnect from the rear axle to reduce fuel consumption when power is not required for all four wheels.
“The 2015 Chrysler 200 was developed as a sign of what’s to come from Chrysler’s lineup going forward, and if this initial demand is any indication, the brand appears to be hitting all the right notes to attract modern buyers,” said Tom Barenboim, owner of Clark Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, a Methuen, Massachusetts Chrysler dealer. “That’s not only great news for the automaker’s employees in Michigan, but also for anyone who wants a midsize sedan that looks and feels a world apart from the bland, beige offerings in its class.”
A range of high-tech features help the 2015 Chrysler 200 carry over its sophisticated manner into the cabin, including segment-first electronic shifting with a rotary dial and a pass-through center console that conveniently houses a covered charging station for mobile devices. For safely staying in touch out on the road, the new Chrysler 200 is available with the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, while an optional seven-inch full-color LED instrument cluster can clearly display relevant driving information like speed, real-time fuel economy and turn-by-turn directions. Chrysler’s redesigned midsize sedan can also be equipped with a suite of active-safety technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus, Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus and ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist.
