High-quality materials are combined with state-of-the-art technology and safety features to create a special midsize sedan you can drive with pride and confidence.

Chrysler celebrates 90 years of automotive excellence with a special edition of the 200 and improvements across the 200 lineup. A rear backup camera, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-path detection ensure your safety, whether you’re maneuvering through a crowded parking lot or changing lanes on a busy highway. The 200 provides the most advanced safety technology at an affordable price.

You have your choice of two powerful engines. The first is a 2.4-liter MultiAir® 2 Tigershark® inline four-cylinder with 184 hp and 173 lb/ft of torque. The second is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with a best-in-class 295 hp and 262 lb/ft of torque. Each is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy EPA-estimated at 36 mpg highway (2.4-liter) makes driving the 200 even more affordable.

These refined and efficient engines are accompanied by a thoughtful, well-crafted interior. Seating has been improved to offer more comfort and help prevent driver fatigue, and amenities like heated seats; a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls; and Gloss Black interior accents are available. Available leather upholstery, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and dual-zone climate control with front and rear outlets further enhance the comfort level in the Chrysler 200.

A 60/40-split/folding rear seat with trunk pass-through increases cargo carrying versatility, and the new 200 includes a center console with sliding cup holders, 12-volt outlets to keep gadgets charged, and audio jack input for mobile devices.

Today’s vehicles are more connected than ever, and the Chrysler 200 stays ahead of the competition with an enhanced version of the acclaimed UConnect® infotainment system. The touchscreen system includes AM/FM/SiriusXM, a media center and a 506-watt amplifier with nine speakers and a subwoofer for a rich sound experience. Navigation is available, as is an 8.4-inch touchscreen with three new features to make it easier to use.

There’s a drag and drop menu bar that enables personalization and one-button access to the features you use most. Siri Eyes Fee provides seamless integration with compatible iPhones, so drivers can use natural voice commands to send text messages, play music, and even dictate and send emails. Drivers can also now activate a “do not disturb” feature that will automatically send all calls directly to voicemail and suppress text messages.

Safety and peace of mind are essential for a pleasant driving experience, so the Chrysler 200 offers more advanced safety features to set your mind at ease. Adaptive Cruise Control-plus with Stop and Go makes long drives and heavy traffic less taxing. Forward Collision Warning-plus will help prevent accidents – it can even bring the car to a stop in certain conditions.
