Chrysler is renowned for manufacturing some of the best sedans in the market. The company recently introduced the all new Chrysler 200. The 2015 Chrysler 200 is a spectacular mid-sized sedan in every respect. It provides great performance and is spacious. It is the perfect car for a family. In addition, the design of the 2015 Chrysler 200 is also quite innovative. Let’s look at the specifications of the all new mid-sized sedan by Chrysler:

Engine Specifications

The 2015 Chrysler 200 carries a fuel-efficient engine. In addition, it is  considerably powerful for a mid-sized sedan. The engine is an inline type with four cylinders. The capacity of this engine is 2.4 liters. This engine may seem small but it generates substantial power. The second engine variant of the 2015 Chrysler 200 is the V-6. This V-6 has a capacity of 3.6 liters and is significantly more powerful that the 2.4-liter variant.

Performance Specifications

The 2015 Chrysler 200’s engine may seem less powerful to some. However, this small engine produces a massive amount of power. The company rates this inline 4-cylidner engine to produce 184 ponies. In addition, it produces 173 pounds of torque per feet. Similar cars with the same specifications may be gas gulpers. However, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is extremely fuel-efficient.

For more power, you can opt for the 3.6-liter engine variant, which produces an amazing 295 horsepower and 262 pounds of torque per feet. One of the best options regarding the 2015 Chrysler 200 is the drivetrain system. To provide a better gas mileage, the 200 uses a unique drivetrain system.

The car is an all-wheel drive. However, when the driver is not driving fast, the rear wheels are disconnected. This relaxes the engine and gives the car a better gas mileage within city limits. When the car is driven on the highway, it will provide a good mileage by default. The engine is rated to deliver as much as 35 miles per gallon on the highway.

Transmission Options

The transmission used in the 2015 Chrysler 200 is automatic. However, this automatic transmission is not available in most mid-sized cars nowadays. It is a 9-speed auto transmission. This gives the 200 an amazingly smooth drive and the gear ratios give it good gas mileage and power. The transmission model used in the 200 is a 948TE.

Interior Styling

The interior of the 2015 Chrysler 200 is one of the best aspects of the car. The car is easily able to seat five passengers. Moreover, the interior design is sophisticated and retains the luxury car legacy of the company. The trim is edgy and you can hardly see where each interior component merges with the next. The speedometer is analogue, but it is paired with digital LCD for more information. Alongside the speedometer, there is an analogue RPM meter. The seats are bucket-style and the center console is spacious.

Exterior Design

The 2015 Chrysler 200 has a great design. The LED lights in the headlamps provide it with a sporty appearance. The stock rims that come with the 200 are quite elegant. The rear lights are also equipped with LEDs which give the rear end of the car an aggressive appearance. The best aspect of the 2015 Chrysler 200 is the grille, which gives it an ever meaner appearance.
