Chrysler will substantially upgrade its unloved Sebring saloon in North America later this year, including a relaunch under a new name.
Set to reach dealerships in the fourth quarter, the Chrysler 200 will receive significantly overhauled styling over the Sebring, including new front and rear ends incorporating new headlight, bumper and grille designs.
The Chrysler 200 will be offered with a 2.4-litre petrol engine mated to either a four-speed or six-speed automatic gearbox. A new 279bhp, 260lb ft V6 petrol engine will also be offered mated to a six-speed auto’ ‘box.
The chassis has been upgraded over the Sebring, too, to offer a softer ride. The suspension geometry has been revised, while NVH levels have all been reduced.
Interior upgrades include more soft touch materials and new instrument and centre console designs.Read the Fiat/Chrysler five-year plan in full
