Vehicle Details: Chrysler Craftsmanship
The road to excellence

There’s more to building a great vehicle than nuts and bolts, wheels and tires – there’s the excellence in craftsmanship that goes into delivering a vehicle that meets your need for style, performance and quality. Chrysler has been delivering all that and more for 90 years, and it continues to lead with innovative vehicles and striking designs.

A recent company-wide initiative has refocused Chrysler on its roots and the founding principles of Walter R. Chrysler, who wanted to produce affordable, well-crafted vehicles. This means offering luxury amenities like heated and ventilated seats and hands-free phone and navigation. It means including features like Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist to make driving safer and easier, and it means excellence in materials and design without breaking the bank.

Chrysler vehicles feature luxurious leather upholstery, real wood trim and real metal accents. Quality materials aren’t an afterthought, they’re an integral part of the design process. Taking inspiration from the world around us, Chrysler designers craft interiors that are not just beautiful, but also comfortable and welcoming spaces for drivers and passengers.

State-of-the-art manufacturing facilities ensure the vehicle you purchase is built to the highest standards. At the Sterling Heights, Michigan, plant, the Chrysler 200 comes together in a process that involves 1,000 robots throughout the facility. This includes paint shops, in which they seal, coat, powder and paint vehicles for a durable and beautiful finish. Excellence runs in the family.

Meticulous craftsmanship is evident in the bold Chrysler 300, which delivers a best-in-class 31 mpg highway, best-in-class 363 hp, and 392 lb/ft of torque from an available 5.7-liter V8 engine. It has a segment-exclusive TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission and it offers all-wheel drive with an exclusive axle disconnect. This all comes wrapped in aggressive, sophisticated bodywork with a dramatic grille and dual exhaust tips.

The 300 cabin is truly special. There are standard leather-covered seats with detailed stitch patterns, and front seats are heated and eight-way power adjustable with four-way lumbar adjustment for optimum comfort.  There’s a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and select trims feature Nappa leather and real wood. The interior of the 300 is so good, it was selected as one of Ward’s “10 Best Interiors” for 2015.

The 300 is joined by the elegant and affordable Chrysler 200. The 200 carries a segment-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission, and it offers more safety features than any other vehicle in the segment. Its 3.6-liter V6 engine delivers a best-in-class 295 hp.

Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and full-speed Collision Warning with Active Braking illustrate the engineering focus on safety. Not to be outdone by the 300, the Chrysler 200 cabin also made the Ward’s “10 Best Interiors” list. It’s the attention to every detail that makes the Chrysler 200 a star.

The Chrysler Town & Country minivan offers all the utility, comfort and amenities a family needs to manage daily errands and enjoy long-distance road trips. Its well-conceived, well-executed cabin includes premium features like leather-trimmed seats, power sliding doors, a power liftgate and a rearview camera.

Families need plenty of flexible cargo space, making the innovative, segment-exclusive Stow 'n Go® Seating and Storage System essential. Arrange the seating in just minutes and be ready for the day’s adventures. You can keep everyone entertained no matter how long the drive with the DVD entertainment system and dual nine-inch screens. Comfort, safety, and versatility are the hallmarks of the Town & Country minivan, which was named “Best Family Hauler” by the Detroit News for the 10th consecutive year.

Three different vehicles with one thing in common: Each is thoughtfully designed and built to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of discerning drivers. Experience the excellence of the Chrysler product line first-hand. Schedule a test drive today.
