Vehicle Profile: 2016 Chrysler 200
Improved comfort, more standard features and expanded technology choices

The midsize Chrysler 200 sedan, on sale here at Perkins Motors in Colorado Springs, Colorado, delivers impeccable craftsmanship, advanced technology and understated elegance. Numerous enhancements make the 2016 Chrysler 200 an even better choice.

In honor of the 90th anniversary of the Chrysler brand, the newest 200 gets three new exterior colors – Redline Tri-coat Pearl, Black Forest Green and Maximum Steel. It also features improved seat firmness for both the driver and front passenger, a standard rearview camera for Limited and S trims, and a heated steering wheel in 200C versions. The award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection are now available in the 200 Limited.

There’s also a 90th Anniversary Package with even more features and value. To the Limited trim equipment, the 90th Anniversary Package adds a Uconnect® 8.4 system; SiriusXM Satellite Radio; special floor mats; a sunroof; and a Convenience Group with heated exterior mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat with four-way power lumbar.

Uconnect®-equipped 2016 200 trims also gain Siri Eyes Free, a Do Not Disturb function, and a Drag and Drop menu bar that allows you to customize the Uconnect® touchscreen to your liking.

Available in LX, Limited, 200S and 200C trims, the 2016 Chrysler 200 offers more than 60 standard and available safety and security features, including advanced systems like Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus, LaneSense Plus with Lane Keep Assist, a high-strength steel frame, eight airbags and Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control. The 2015 200 earned a best-possible “2015 Top Safety Pick+” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, something that many competitors – including the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion and Honda Accord – failed to achieve.

The 200 is powered by 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® II four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 hp and an EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway, or the aforementioned V6 that produces a best-in-class 295 hp and an estimated 32 mpg highway. Each engine is paired with a state-of-the-art nine-speed automatic transmission with electronic shifting. Also available is an all-wheel drive system that not only enhances handling and poor weather confidence, it contributes to the excellent fuel economy thanks to its exclusive fully disconnecting rear axle. A five-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty with Roadside Assistance provides additional peace of mind.

The 200 was designed, engineered and built in Michigan, where Chrysler has invested more than $1 billion in its Sterling Heights facility. Stop by to see and drive the 2016 Chrysler 200 today.
